I don’t think that’s a fact.February 3, 2019 2:02 pm at 2:02 pm #1672947
It’s not a problem because apparently only Jews living in the 5 Towns know where the 5 Towns is. Everyone else thinks it’s in Brooklyn.
🤣😂 Thank you for this post, made my day -29February 3, 2019 2:29 pm at 2:29 pm #1672965
That’s true PhilFebruary 3, 2019 2:52 pm at 2:52 pm #1672971
Mod-29 I’m glad to have made your day 🙂February 3, 2019 3:59 pm at 3:59 pm #1672992
What are you talking about? Far rockawayers know where the 5 towns are, they have to go shopping there/eat out thereFebruary 3, 2019 4:51 pm at 4:51 pm #1673000
That’s also true coffeFebruary 3, 2019 5:08 pm at 5:08 pm #1673022
Honestly none of this really matters. All that matters is that we must fight for our communities, and stick up for our people. We’re all Jews and there shouldn’t be any hatred amongst us!!!!February 3, 2019 5:34 pm at 5:34 pm #1673052
Coffee addict, I was just exaggerating a bit but still not everyone, even upstate New Yorkers, know where the 5 Towns is. But thanks for educating me on the general area of 5 Towns 🙂
JustaJew39, we don’t hate each other at all! Kol Yisroel areivim zeh lzeh. Still this is an important topic. Women who are not b’tznius are nichshal others and there’s nothing wrong with discussing this vital topic.February 3, 2019 6:03 pm at 6:03 pm #1673058

Just a Jew
You have made offensive comments about almost everyone who has posted on this thread.
How does that even make sense?
You are smashing and insulting and excoriating SPECIFIC people here on this thread.
The moderators know who they are and perhaps many Others also know.
All in your quest to advance an agenda of tolerance and not judging others????
Your hypocrisy is not even subtle.
It’s plain bewildering.
And yes it is OK to publicize certain wrongdoings of others and it is not lashon hara
The רמב”ם says מצוה לפרסם עושי רשעה.
In order that others don’t learn from them
If someone defends a person who is being עובר עבירה according to many ראשונים he is עובר לאו ד-לא תחניפו את הארץ
Besides that your entire defense is lunacy.
Others claim the 5towns are a bastion of promiscuity. I AM NOT TAKING THAT OPINION. I HAVE NO OPINION AS I HAVE ZERO KNOWLEDGE ABOUT IT.
you are responding that the 5 towns are a bastion of Torah and chesed.
Are those two things mutually exclusive?
How is your post a defense?February 4, 2019 12:25 pm at 12:25 pm #1673546
There may be Torah there, but materialism is out of control there.February 4, 2019 2:01 pm at 2:01 pm #1673572
Thanks but I don’t deserve the credit
It belongs to dyFebruary 4, 2019 2:01 pm at 2:01 pm #1673577
So what? Other places have a high amount of materialism too (just look at the ads for Pesach hotels, and no the idea wasn’t just for the 5 towns)
Additionally I could knock any community for anything I want (being true of course)February 4, 2019 2:30 pm at 2:30 pm #1673609
Once materialism in the 5 towns was accepted by certain people, it started becoming acceptable in other places.February 4, 2019 3:44 pm at 3:44 pm #1673618
I didn’t know the 5 towns had so much השפעה to the rest of the world
Even to people that don’t know where it osFebruary 4, 2019 7:26 pm at 7:26 pm #1673993
I just want to say that Im insulted for someone mentioning in the other 5t tznius thread that 5t is trying to be the “new lakewood”. ABSOLUTELY NOT. if that is the trend happening now Im moving right out! first of all thats classic “in-town” talk. who came first: 5 towns or lakewood (as it is now)? the answer is 5 towns my friends. there is NOTHING that 5 towns is trying to copy from lakewood-just look at 5 towns prices!! Lakewood is a branch off from BK. end of story. I rest my case.February 5, 2019 6:46 am at 6:46 am #1674200
Lashon hara is not acceptableFebruary 5, 2019 8:45 am at 8:45 am #1674230
Neither is eating pork
Or wearing Shatnez .
What’s your point?February 5, 2019 9:27 am at 9:27 am #1674281
Kluger is rightFebruary 7, 2019 7:14 pm at 7:14 pm #1676143

“Not if it will make some people feel bad”
Ha. Facts don’t care about your feelings. If a town has an epidemic for halachah-ignoring behavior, the world deserves to know.March 5, 2019 4:52 pm at 4:52 pm #1689491
“. . . 5T may seem OOT but it really has it all from the perspective of a frum couple or family seeking to relocate but stay close to real world . . .”
You’re living in a fantasy world, my friend. The “real world,” such as it is, is not anywhere on the western side of the Atlantic. Your 5T is certainly OOT, as is Monsey, Williamsburg, Boro Park, Flatbush, Lakewood, and the list goes on and on.
It’s sad that the “frum couple or family” you mention so often treats E”Y as a spiritual Disneyland, but never gives a thought to what Hashem has written in his Torah over and over again. It’s amazing to me that I can visit the U.S. and see people read the words “וקבצנו מארבע כנפות הארץ לארצנו “, yet it apparently makes no impact.March 5, 2019 5:58 pm at 5:58 pm #1689534
You Zionists will really jump on any opportunity to derail a thread, won’t you?March 5, 2019 6:22 pm at 6:22 pm #1689561

It’s assur to leave Eretz Yisroel for a visit.March 5, 2019 6:56 pm at 6:56 pm #1689569

It’s amazing to me that i can visit מדינת ישראל and see people that think it’s not גלות even with a pride parade going on in ירושליםMarch 6, 2019 7:46 am at 7:46 am #1689694
“It’s assur to leave Eretz Yisroel for a visit.”
My parents were ill and dying, and then for the shiva,. Still going to maintain that it’s assur?

Of course not, but you’ve got to stop assuming those of us living in chu”l don’t also have valid reasons.March 6, 2019 8:40 am at 8:40 am #1689706

You violate a bigger issur for leaving than anyone who doesn’t live there might violate for not moving there.
