    1 – Not sure how many people make 200,000/year. Subtract from 200,000 tax and tuition for 8 children and you will see how much money they will have on handes to pay for mortgage/rent, utilities, food, clothes, etc. Do not think they will have money for vocation or for girls seminary in EY. The most people I know make way less then 200,000/year

    I do not know who open and manage the fund, but I saw a short video recorded by Dr. Zelenko from the hospital ward. He said the following. On July 23rd he was scheduled for biopsy. He also has another issue. On coming Tuesday he was scheduled for open heart surgery. He hopes for the best, but since he will not be able to work for some time after the surgery, he asked for a help for his wife and children

    CTLAWYER – do you realize that stores do not give us bags for free? The cost of the bag (paper or plastic) included in the cost of anything we buy in the store. When stores will no longer give plastic bags, the cost of the food or any other product will not get down; prices will be the same as before. So, the cost of anything we will buy will include the cost of the bag (but no bag will be given) + if we want to have a bag, we will pay for it. It means we will pay for the same bag twice.
    2 cense your store paying you back are belong to you, because it included in the price of everything you bought. Store owner does not make you a favor, store owner just trying to be honest

    A few questions.
    If man all his life learning in a kolel and his wife supports the family. When their children will come to the parsha, how many families this wife/mother will able to support? Does anyone believe that one woman can support a few families at the same time – her own family plus her children’s families?

    1. Is it legal to hire ILLEGAL immigrant?
    2. If someone will come to your door and say that from now on they will live in your house, because your house is way better, that house they have. They will not ask your permission to enter, they just will get in and stay as long as they want. They will use your bed and bathroom, the food from your fridge and so on. They will take your job. Will you agree? How entering and occupy your house without your permission is different from entering foreign country without permission?

    “Perhaps we need to have advisors associated with the Kollelim that can advise individual Kollel members on how to start preparting for earning a parnassa during their down times in Kollel so that they are prepared and trained to find a job as soon as they leave Kollel.

    “. so they assume that because the area code on their house phone 732 they should get into school with kids who’s mother and father are moiser nefesh in 2016 to bring their kids up in the most sheltered way they could imagine (obviously there is no fool proof way but…)”

    So, from your post I can see two ways to resolve the problem.

    1. Every family outside of Lakewood, which is not up to Lakewood lifestyle standard, should stop giving donation to yeshivos and kollelem in Lakewood. Instead they should give these money for a new school in Lakewood, which will accept every Jewish child, who does not fit to existed schools. This way all Jewish kids will have Jewish education, every Jew will support his own lifestyle and different “circles” of Jews will not mingle.

    2. Find a new place for BMG with stipulation, that Jews, who not belong to yeshiva have no rights to settle next to yeshiva. Apartment buildings should be belong to BMG and available for avrechim/rabbeim only. Do not allow to build luxury houses around yeshiva, avrechim can’t afford them. People, who can afford (most of them) – have not BMG lifestyle. Whoever is good enough to provide service for BMG, can travel to work from any other town/city.

    It is not an option to send Jewish child to public school.

    To yeru613

    I see your point. So, maybe Lakewood suppose to be the town for avrechim only? Otherwise kids from different walks may interact with each other on a street/in the store. Lets make everyone who not learn full time leave Lakewood and take their kids along. People, who learn full time do not have (not suppose to have?) Internet. Make Lakewood free from Internet users. All stores and services in Lakewood can be successfully run by not Jews. Their kids go to public school. I’m not sarcastic. Just asking.

    If Bais Yaakov type girl spells “collAge” instead of “collEge”, she can’t be a teacher or secretary.

    Bais Yaakov type of girl usually would like to be married to the boy, who will learn for years. It means, she need to think about her future job way before she graduated from school. She need to figure out what kind of skills she has or she need to develop some skills, which will help her later to support her family. It will be nice, if Bais Yaakov schools will not only make girls mind to marry boys, who learn, but also will help girls to develop skills.

    It is a father’s obligation to teach his son Torah. Maybe it will make more sense, if only rich people will send their sons to school. Today more and more families choosing to use home schooling system for their kids (not only observant families and not only Jewish families). It is cheaper, and less stressful ( for parents and for children). I don’t believe, that child, who don’t like (I don’t say “hate”) his rebbi, will be a good student any way. The rebbi will have a smaller class, less stress and more patience – everyone in a class will be rich.
