    I live out of town yet I love being in Bklyn or Lkwd in the morning or afternoon to see all the buses. It is amazing how many jewish children there are. I don’t think anyone’s grandparents 70 yrs ago would’ve believed that within 70 yrs there would be so many children!!

    crazy brit – you are so negative and sarcastic. I do believe his stories are true but that is not what I said. I said he has it in his book. If someone is interested in finding out more they can look at the book and do their research from there. I am sure you can find people who are in the book and did have a yeshua.

    why should the well to do make a simple wedding just because you (the not wealthy) think they have to have everything that others do. The same way I tell my kids they don’t need/can’t have a, b, or c – make a wedding within budget. there are so many ways today where you can make a wedding within a budget. yes you do need some money and it is very hard to save up. I think most of the time it is the parents who want the fancier things by the weddings not the chosson kalla

    Rhawnhurst is a nice community but there are not to many families who have children living in the community. The school is a good school as day schools go and it is run by a pretty right hanhala although it is a mixed crowd. Many of the kids in the school come from ohter communities about 20-30 minutes away from the school. If you have specific questions..

    a great carriage to compare to the city mini is the Britax. It is very comparable and much cheaper than the city mini and you can get the stroller and carseat for less than the city mini. Also the Britax comes with a piece that you attach to the side of the stroller and the carseat clicks into it. It is great.

    hello, there is already vouchers in Israel – the govt pays for Bais Yaakovs and some of the chadorim (I am not sure exactly how it works with boys). The tuition for girls is about 1/10th of what it is here. you also do not pay health insurance – that is 2/3 of the big expenses (mortgage being the third)

    there was a whole article last week on this in the mishpacha with some stories.

I am not sure where it was.

    it might be too late for this year but there is a bell that I used for my son – for bedwetting. It really worked for him and I’ve lent it to a few other people who have had success with it too. It rings when it gets wet and wakes up the child. It takes a few weeks but then they either get up by themselves or sleep through the night dry. It is amazing.

    you’re assuming too many things. It is like saying – let’s assume challa is not chometzdig why wouldn’t someone eat it on Pesach?

    If in the US you truly want welfare people off – you need to put them to work – make them clean the streets, clean public buildings etc. (I’m sure there are a thousand other things that can be done) in order to receive their welfare check – they’ll get off welfare fast because they can make more doing anything else.

    Another point – you can make thousands of dollars in the US monthly – between food stamps, state health insurance, section 8 etc. You never have to get off of that (unless your income changes). And yes my taxes go to pay for that – that is the system
