I have really enjoyed reading your posts – you also were helpful by giving me advice on whether our oldest son would be prepared for law school with a BTL degree. (He ended up getting a Masters degree in accounting through the amazing FDU/Lakewood program, married an incredible girl from Chicago in January and moved to Chicago.) I hope you will work for as along as possible. My father is a real estate attorney here in Norfolk/Virginia Beach and IYH will be 80 in January. Working keeps him young, sharp and happy:) I’m glad you have the support you need to keep going. Hatzlacha!!
Thank you, everyone. Our son found a hotel. We became Shomer Shabbos about 20 years ago and this is our oldest son who is getting married. BH, we just had an amazing Shabbos in Lakewood and are looking forward to the chasunah tomorrow night!
Thanks, Seth123. I was told to get a suite with 2 queen beds. I tried Ocean Place, The Wave, Oyster Point and the Sheraton Eatontown. None of them had suites with 2 queen or double beds.
I agree. We have been super careful here in Virginia and will continue to be careful in Lakewood:)
Thank you everyone for your responses. Our sons are in one of the smaller yeshivas and there is a plan in place for the boys to return. Our older son is in the PCS masters in accounting program and that is continuing online as it has been for several months. I am really impressed by how their yeshiva and PCS have been handling the covid situation. IY”H, we will all get through this soon.
Yes – here in Norfolk it does:)
While I was online, I thought about this thread I started. In the end, our son did not go to law school. He is currently in an amazing program in Lakewood pursuing a Masters Degree in Accounting. It’s a really good fit for him. He was (now he’s home along with our 20 year old son as well) learning during the day and taking the college classes in the evening. Before he had to come home, he was volunteering with the VITA program in Lakewood as well. Thanks everyone for your opinions and stay healthy!!
Thanks again for the advice. Whatever our son chooses to do, he does need the general studies classes for the value of the knowledge, not just to say he took the classes. Whatever graduate program he chooses, it doesn’t matter just that he gets in – it’s more important that he is prepared to succeed. Fortunately, our local yeshiva had a rigorous academic program (in addition to amazing learning!), so I am glad he has had a good academic background. He was the valedictorian for his small class (Jewish mother plug – sorry!) and is looking forward to taking some academic classes soon. Thank you everyone and have a good Shabbos!!
Thank you so much for all of your advice. My father is a real estate attorney here in Norfolk, VA, but the reality is our son will probably not move back here (as much as I might like for him to do so:)). We are BT’s trying to help our oldest son navigate through the post yeshiva education system and it is quite different than how my husband and I went to college and grad school. B”H, our son’s Rosh Yeshiva and other rabbeim have been very helpful. Our son will be home for a few weeks this summer and he will be spending time with lawyers in various fields while he is here. (My dad’s practice is 95% real estate closings.) It sounds like an online class might not work this summer, but I will keep trying. Thanks again! Shari
