    As someone who immigrated from the Ukraine as a child, was called “zhid” by a classmate .. I am totally with you. Even the language gives me chills.. they have so much blood on their hands.. Khmelnitskiy yemach shmo… pogroms.. babi yar.. collaborating with the nazis.. rabid anti semitisim always.. I am not exactly choking with tears.. However, lets hope it all stops there.. and no Jew gets hurt. Mashiach Now!

    Its sad to read some of these comments and to see such a lack of clarity. Every step you take in EY is a mitzva. Its golus, true, but it is the place with most kedusha and spiritual opportunities that exist right now on earth. Is that not enough for you? If you love Hshem, and if you care about your neshama, this is the only place to be.. If you can come, then do it now.. You can make a living, sometimes even better than in chu’l. I know so many stories of people thriving here.. If you come here you will realize how many essential expenses will only be a fraction here.. health insurance.. tuition.. no need to go the “country” or to compete with the Rosenbergs. This is the only place that for our Jewish neshama.

    Consider this plan: I think that if we all dig a ditch, take some food provisions and stay there until 120, we will all live longer and there will be fewer deaths to report on … for a few reasons.

    Hi, RBS is a good idea if you feel its the right fit for you.. Since I don’t know who you are, it is difficult to say. For me it was way too modern, American, and materialistic for the most part. I did not come to EY to be in America. However, there are chareidi parts there so its fine and you can make it work.. Of course, if you have kids, everything is about your kids. Your choice of place very much depends on your family composition and circumstances. Anyway.. there are many wonderful ways to look for a rental in RBS without a realstate. There is a FB group where people share about apartments that are available.. and there is Issa Bracha and even yad2 if you have some Hebrew (you can translate on the site) There is also a general RBS FB group and plently of people will give you lots and lots of advice about whatever you need..

    I know about the boys school. There is a very nice mefakeah there Rabbi Yehuda. He is the one to talk to. I don’t know the menahel there, but I would talk to R. Yehuda. I know a bit about who sends to this school and can tell you but not in open forum. If you want to speak email me

    sorry, no personal emails

    Assurnet, you are asking a million dollar question and touching upon a source of pain for many parents in this parsha. As far as we are concerned, I just accept the situation as it is right now.. and am very proactive for my own family.. and yes it takes a lot of time and money too.. So, with math, I have been teaching my boys, just simply from the secular education curriculum (check out education.com) because although they make attempts to teach something in chedomrim, bderech klal in my experience it does not really happen, at least many children dont really learn math properly. There is hardly clear explanation and many times it causes more confusion and fear of math then leads to actual solid knowledge. Some kids can develop a complex and fear of math until you take over the controls in this area… I personally don’t care about calculus or anything higher, but plan to teach algebra, geometry.. etc..too and go as far as my own very very limited knowledge can take me (I am not a math person at all). I can also always find teachers if I cant in the future handle the level. In addition. I have also always supplemented with chugim of all types.. by finding professionals in the field who are willing to teach kids… Music.., electronics.. woodwork.. My husband is the science and geography guy.. It is obviously not simple but we have a solid secular education and can’t see our children not having access to knowledge, especially since it is kosher and only enhances your understanding of the beauty of Hashem’s world. Also our kids are the curious types. This is a tough reality and I don’t have any easy answers. I find certain things just are and if you bang you head against that wall, you can only get a concussion. Still, despite the challenges, learning kodesh in Yerushalaim and breathing the air of kedusha ultimately leads to the true goal… The system is not perfect yet, but ultimately what we want for our children can be achieved, with lots of tefillah and siyata d’shmaya. And anyway, it is not easier anywhere else..
