    I didnt send there but my friends have so I could only tell you what I heard. It is suppose to have the hashkafah of Breuers in Washinton Heights where they lean towards the girls having a secular education. My friends kids loved it but they are not typical Bais Yaacov kids not modern in the way they dress but their thinking is more modern than yeshivish. The principal is suppose to be very nice.

    I hope this helps.

    Rabbi Gluck e-mail areivim@juno.com . His office phone number is 845-371-2760.

    Also Rabbi Ronald Greenwald might be able to help as to who to contact. I dont have his number but he is in Monsey and I am sure if you ask around you could get his number.

    Take a ready made graham cracker crust crush a bunch of oreo cookies or the heimishe brand bloomies (it only works with the oreo type not just any sandwich cookie). Take a container of whipped topping do not whip it pour in to crust and freeze until firm.

    You might need a little bit more than a container of whip to fill the crust up. We like a lot of cookies so I put in a lot.

    Cant get easier than this.

    yentingyenta- thanks so much for the info. One more question, how is the reception on the phone. I think my daughter will just order it and hope for the best. I just want a basic phone for her and most of them you need to buy a data package which is annoying.

    So what do you say to a child when they come to you and ask to go to camp because all their friends are going and they want to go also but you just cant afford it? I know my child is a very good child and aidel but I see the bitterness coming out because she will be left home when everyone she is friends with is away.

    Elicpa that was really well put.

    I have a 12 year old chevy suburban and yes it eats up a lot of gas but not more than any other SUV. The tank holds about 28 gallons so if you fill up it will cost a lot for a whole tank full of gas at one time. I do a lot of carpools and in town driving not highway driving so I cant tell you how it does on the open road.

    Plus size clothing is a bit more because you have to use more fabric than smaller sizes. The department stores do have nice things but sometimes if you want the frum look then you have to go to a frum store. I dont know where you live but someone was suppose to open a womens store in Boro park but not sure if they did or not.

    I think it is a real need. Actually I manufacture clothing and so many people have told me that I should make clothing for plus size women and also for pre-teens and teens who are heavy. But the problem is would people pay the price for them because it wouldnt be cheap.

    We had the same problem. A boy that sounded amazing was redd to my daughter, by the time we said yes he was busy. My daughter started to go out with someone else that she was iffy about and in the mean time the first boy boy wasnt busy anymore but I told my daughter to forget about the first boy and concentrate on who she was going out with and guess what they got married and they are b’h so happy. I am not saying that this boy that is iffy will be the one, but if the first boy is your bashert he will be there when you are ready.

    Another word of advice, never look back and think what about what if. It was not meant to be.

    This happens in my house also. My husband very politely tell everyone that they are welcome to stay for kiddush that they dont have to rush home, but we are making kiddush right now and then he starts to make kiddush. Or he has used a different approach. He tells everyone that their husbands/fathers just came home and are waiting for them to start to make kiddush. Everyone who comes to my house knows that is not true as we are always the first to make kiddush but they get the hint.

    One year I couldnt think of a present so I made a candlelight dinner with all fancy china and I wrote a romantic poem for my husband. Another year I made a picnic with all the trimmings and we sat on blankets in our living room. My husband doesnt go for presents that are religious like megillahs or things like that he would rather have the fancy dinners and a card.

    I feel for you. My son is 16 and occasionally wets his bed. He was on medication that helped a lot. Ask your parents to speak to your doctor about the medication.

    Also remember to stop drinking a few hours before bed, it might be hard to do in the heat, but try to limit it and go to the bathroom before you go to sleep. Maybe there is someone who could discreetly wake you up a few hours after you fall asleep to go the bathroom.

    Good luck

    Growing up I went to a bais yaacov school and we always said the pledge of allegiance in the afternoon in english class and we stood and put our hand to our heart.

    I know people who put up an american flag on the fourth of July and Memorial day. Also in my neighborhood we have a parade on Memorial day and I know frum people who join in marching and watching and waving flags. It is to show the goyim that even though we are jewish we still support the country we live in.

    Two of my children where hospitalized in Westchester Medical. Both times I was very impressed with the quality of care. I am not saying that there where not mistakes but the nurses where really nice and they went out of their way to make my stay with my kids as comfortable as possible.

    I also took one of my sons to the ER of Columbia Presbyterian babies hospital and I was impressed there too. My son needed a sonogram and we where waiting in the waiting room for our turn, we where sitting next to some elderly senile men, the nurse came over and told us to wait in an empty room because she thought my son who was 11 at the time would be more comfortable.

    One question that my friend asks is what negative trait does he have.Everyone is not perfect and not every negative trait is bad so it would be interesting to hear what is said. When we were looking into a boy when my daughter was going out all we heard was great things about him so when I asked what negative trait he has we were told he is very absentminded which might be fine for some but not everyone could handle it.

    Also dont forget to ask if he is on any medication or if he has any chronic illnesses you would be surprised as to what is not told if not asked.

    lostinba, I was wondering if you ever got an answer to your question. I was wondering the same thing as I manufacture ladies clothing and would like to stop selling to yidden and sell to goyim. I did ask my rav and he said that it is okay to make untznius clothing but I have to think real carefully as I have girls that I have to marry off. I feel if you are working for a company and you yourself will not be selling it it is fine. I design,manufacture and all myself so it is a bit different because it is my own company.

    I feel for you. My husband is in IT also and is out of work and we have a large family and tuitions to pay and food and clothing plus we are making a chasuna. First get on all the programs if you have little kids under 3 you can get WIC and then there are food stamps tomche shabbos and child health plus all this helps but it is not the real answer. I suggested to my husband to go to lawyer and doctor offices who need an IT person but not on a steady basis and let them know you are looking for more customers and give them a card.

    Families in IT should have a support group, I know so many that were hit very hard. I feel your pain. I dont know your situation but for us I was a stay at home mom but I had to go out and get a job but we couldnt afford babysitting so I opened a store and when ever I have to go into the city that day my husband will watch it is not ideal but we need to pay our bills.

    Hatzlocha and I will keep you in mind when I daven.

    P.S. I forgot to mention that my husband has an ad running in our local jewish paper to fix private peoples computer or to get rid of viruses ect.

    I have just been own this road with my daughter. We were getting redd boys and they were asking for a photo, we asked our Rav who told us under no circumstances are we to give a photo. If they will not go out without seeing one and just by the shadchans description then it is not for us. If the shadchan never met the girl and wants to see a photo that is fine but it must be returned.I blamed it on my rav, if the boys mother wants to argue with a rav then over a picture I am not interested in that family.

    B”H my daughter marrried the first boy she went out with and she was 19 without the boy seeing a picture.

    What I know boys mothers do is find out when the girl who was redd to their son is going to a simcha and they will try to get a look at her while she is at the simcha.

    I had a similar situation with my daughter. A friend of mine and her son was interested in my daughter. For different reason he was not what I wanted for my daughter and she was not interested either. I knew that if I said outright no they would be very hurt and insulted. I knew what my friends son was like in terms of personality and how frum he is so I told them we are looking for the opposite. That did the trick they stopped asking.

    Then another friend came along with a son and they were interested in my daughter, I did not think this boy was for her either but I like the family very much and know many of his siblings so my daughter went out just because they where pushing it(in a nice way) and my daughter had no one else at the moment and they hit it off so well they got married and we are so happy with him. So you really dont know.

    This past yom tov I had my eyes professionally done. It was very thick the first day but by the third day it still looked great I did get a lot of compliments and I had to explain to some people that I did not put on makeup on yom tov. For foundation and blush I did it myself and just put on a few layers and I bought lipstick that stays on for a few days. I did have to be careful eating and I slept sitting up with several pillows but by the third day it still looked good and yes by the end of yom tov I couldnt wait to scrub my face but I would do it again.

    My friends family believes in long time learning so what they do is they set up their girls with an education and then a good job. Yes they dont get married at 19 20 but they get married at around 22 23, but by then they have a nice size bank account and a really good paying job, that there is no reason for the parents to help. The parents do here and there give money or food but they don’t give a monthly check. Believe it or not but the boys mothers still ask if my friends parents would support.

    If there was really nothing wrong with the boy or girl (being rude,nasty to people or anything against halacha ect.)only not “hitting it off” together, I think they should give it another chance. They could be nervous and not really be themselves.

    I know from experience, we just finished having sheva brachos for my daughter and her chasson. My daughter went out with her chasson on their first date which lasted only an hour, she came home and told me she had nothing to talk to him about and he was not for her, he went home and said the same thing. I pushed her to go out one more time and he agreed to go out again (the shaddchan had a lot to do with it) and the rest is history (it really took five dates before it really clicked). Now they have so much to talk about and are so much alike in their thinking and hopefully they will always stay this happy with each other.

    When my son was 12 hours old he was rushed for emergency surgery for a urology problem. The doctor reassured us that he will be able to have his bris on time, but the mohel who is very well known said that it has to be pushed off because he still had a few stitches. According to the doctor it was medically okay but not according to the mohel so he had his bris a few weeks late. Halacha overrides a medical decision.

    My daughter is in the shidduch parsha and is young and because she is quiet most of the boys redd to her said no because they found out she is quiet.There is nothing wrong with her, she is thin, pretty, nice to talk to, she has a job and is in school. Because the boys have a long list they dont want to even take the time for one date to see what she is all about.

    I am not saying that it only the girls with this problem, I know boys that are quite that have a hard time with dates but because there are more girls dating (so it seems) the boys would get a date easier.
