akuperma: true most people did not have cars but they didnt live in suburbs where you MUST have a car, u cant live in Lakewood w/o at least one car in the household. I blame Jewish politicians and so called “Jewish” orgs like the federation for the financial crisis. Jewish politicians do NOTHING to alleviate the burden of tuition and the federation take MILLIONS (check UJA’s numbers 300 million) and give it to Africa, Ethiopians in Israel and some useless “workshops”. other orgs like chai lifeline and oorah take money from yeshivas and do there own thing, there are way TOO many frum orgs, how many times are you invited to various auctions and the like? This is because these are businesses go to charitynavigator.org Nowadays EVERYONE is encouraged to go to kollel and if you dont you are a less than, this is the fact, if not were welfare and Section 8 this would not be the case,this is why Jews are Democrats frum get more aid than the non-frum.

JAM in that lies the problem, “men” who are forever students.
Leave the park, one should avoid machlokes at all costs.
Hebrew is the Jewish language Yiddish is the language of Germans
So acc. to whome123 and mikehall maybe we should free ALL the terrorists and rather spend that money on better things? Why dont we free everyone? I believe better to give them the death penalty after all they are jihadists.October 18, 2011 3:37 pm at 3:37 pm in reply to: What to do to the chazzan who takes too long for hallel #818606

Message to the world, TERRORISM PAYS.
the police are just as corrupt as the criminals
Women always feel worse when there is a rejection, this is their teva.
the cheapest you can find is $1,000 for a basement
The reality is, if the community would not have all these “funds” for this and that cause and subsidize the chareidi in Israel, we would make a difference in tuition prices, not to mention the fact that all govt largess goes to HASC and Ohel whose owners make over a million a year on doing “chesed” the system is collapsing, see if our “frum” politicians care one bit, hint the answer starts with an N and ends with an O.
This should be forbidden as Jewish girls are not some kind of hollywood celebrities to show off their looks.
Hopefully a real Republican unlike Bush will come and get rid off all these useless fraudulent programs and then we will see who stays committed to the lifestyle. What could be better one might ask all of Nissan, Tishrei, Av off and no testing for learning going on. No need for commutes, dealing with an irritable boss.
Most Agudah like shuls and rabbis would oppose anything to do with the internet.
When has there not been some kind of shidduch crisis? The reality is, is that even in the times of Avraham avinu there he was looking far and hard for a shidduch for his son.
Peacemaker that is exactly my point, the system is not collapsing for the rich or those who know how to game it, Feif Un cannot agree more with you, there should be kollel’s for those who want a job in chinuch, rabbonus and the like not for every Yakov, Moshe and Dovid.
Mikehall I wonder the same thing, but this is one of the reasons why tuition is expensive is the working parents pay for their and the kollel guys kids and the there are less resources left. Again I want their to be rabbonim and rebbeim for the next generation and there are people I sincerely believe SHOULD be in kollel since it would be a waste of their talents if not, however this is maybe 10-15% of the people the rest are just not capable.
Mommamai, I too have given up on setting people up, since they have unending questions, the girl wants to know if he ever misses a minyan and learns like a tanna, but she doesnt or cant support him and wants him to work and the guy wants an exotic beauty that exists in one place, HIS IMAGINATION. Shuls however are buildings ultimately it will be people in shuls that would need to do this, even you and I have given up, who else will do it?
The reality is the kollel scene is an extension of the shidduch scene except here money counts more than looks.
The reality is that since time immemorial there have been more eligibly women than men that is why Jews always practised polygamy. Plus the women nowadays are often happy being single since they have $, go on vacations with friends and have fulfilling careers. Feminism has gotten to Orthodoxy as well, these are the facts.
