20 years ago I attended a lecture by the asst. District attorney in Flatbush. The police had just arrested a frum drug dealer and obtained his roladex which had names of frum kids from every frum area in the tri state region. This has been a problem for a very long time. The same goes for sexual abise,eating disorders and the leaders of the communities biru their heads in the sand. I am afraid it’s too late and it will only get worse before it gets better . My kids range in age from 30 down to 17
Not a and girls they all have friends affected by this.
Many not all,especially in the chasidish community do not get married civilly, thus the mother can claim 10 dependants and collect government benefits. I wasn’t saying the women and children need to dress like paupers. But why give the goyish world more ammo to hate us and resent us we are still guests in this country, israel is the land that is truly ours. We are supposed to be a light unto other nations. Unfortunately in this instance we were not.
For the past 10 years I have been working as a health care provider in Boro park. Tha facility provides Healthcare for a population that 95 % is on government assistance. This includes medical and dental benefits and in many cases (SNAP). Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program aka food stamps. Some,not all of these individuals are able to spend the chagim in israel,go to “the country” for the whole summer. Dress their kids in the finest and latest fashions. The mothers are dressed equally as well and wearing the latest sheital that cost thousands of dollara.People (non jewish and frum,not frum) realize that something is “off” with this scenario. This is a chilul hashem. On the other hand there are many who need the assistance from the government just to feed their kids and supply them with the basic necessities. Then there are the families stuck in the middle,the ones who both parents work just to get by and make “too much” to qualify for help. If you need help then by all means apply for it and use all the resources possible,just don’t lie and embarrass the whole cimmunity. As an aside the FBI doesn’t play games,you don’t get arrested unless they have a case and the District attorney decides. They don’t want to cry wolf and not get a conviction.
One of my son’s attended public school for his last semester of high school. He said whatever was happening in his old high school (modern orthodox co-ed) was child’s play to what was going on in public school. The availability of drugs and zenut was everywhere. He said there were alot of very good kids,very bright kids but it is very easy to fall into that “anything goes” lifestyle with the other portion of the school.
I have seen pictures of the kohen gadols head dress and it wasn’t a borsolino . My question is why isn’t a nice black kippah good enough
Sukkah was assembled correctly.it was raining and windy, not hurricane like winds and the poles bent and caused everything collapsed and this was the cause of the velcro to tear from the walls.
The website for sukkah depot does not offer any fine print as to what they warranty,I could not find any link or tab to find additional information. The receipt states nothing about warranty only return policy for new sukkah. I am only asking them to stand by their warranty
The warranty is only on the website and it boasts only sukkah with 10 year warranty.
