Do people actually listen to the freezer rules of BMG? Do the rabbis check if people are going on dates before the freezer is unlocked? Do they take attendance during night seder like it’s 9th grade? this isn’t a troll post.February 12, 2013 8:12 pm at 8:12 pm #929835FacetiousMember

As far as I am aware, the freezer rule is mostly kept.

I have heard of the freezer concept before, but for those of us who don’t know, what is the freezer rules? Just no shidduch dating? Or some other rules as well.February 12, 2013 8:29 pm at 8:29 pm #929838YentaParticipant

lakewhut – Like anything in Lakewood – you can only get in trouble if they catch you.
How can they catch you?
1. S/o sees you & snitches.
2. You get engaged before your freezer ends.
In the second instance it’s worth the chance -as long as you don’t plan on going to Kollel in BMG.February 13, 2013 3:17 am at 3:17 am #929850locaMember
Get in trouble? Seriously?
Cmon.February 13, 2013 3:55 am at 3:55 am #929851
It probably depends how much tuition you pay.February 13, 2013 3:58 am at 3:58 am #929852locaMember
Tuition to BMG?February 13, 2013 4:03 am at 4:03 am #929853
They charge a hefty sum.February 13, 2013 5:42 pm at 5:42 pm #929854HealthParticipant
loca -“Get in trouble? Seriously?”
Like I said -if you aren’t going to their Kollel -then do what you want. But if it’s obvious that you broke their rules and want to sit in their Kollel – you can forget about ever getting a Kollel check.February 13, 2013 8:10 pm at 8:10 pm #929855lakewhutParticipant
So if somebody finds his zivug he won’t get a kollel check? Makes sense.February 13, 2013 8:39 pm at 8:39 pm #929856☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
Lakewhut, So if somebody breaks the rules he won’t get a kollel check? Makes sense.

If I remember correctly from my younger years, if you got caught you were thrown out of the dorm.February 13, 2013 11:48 pm at 11:48 pm #929858
all the shadchans dont rlly redt if they know ur still in the freezer..

BMG makes the rules and if you want to stay there, you have to obey their rulesFebruary 14, 2013 10:39 am at 10:39 am #929860PosterMember
If you are in middle of dating before you enter BMG you are allowed to continue with that girl.February 14, 2013 11:16 pm at 11:16 pm #929864

Of course! 100%! Otherwise, they would get kicked out!February 15, 2013 1:11 am at 1:11 am #929866SeilishMember
What is BMG’s official reason for having the freezer? Is it so that the bochorim should fully concentrate on the learning (if so, then why only 6 months?) or is it so that bochorim shouldn’t enroll in BMG mainly because they want a better shidduch?February 15, 2013 1:27 am at 1:27 am #929867Veltz MeshugenerMember
It makes perfect sense to have a settling in period before getting completely distracted with shidduchim. Other yeshivas have similar policies for college.February 15, 2013 2:39 am at 2:39 am #929868
selfish- both!! u hit the nail on da head!! boing!! 😉
