Nothing wrong with living together with people of your own kind and it has nothing to do with being Charedi or not. (There are communities that davka DON’T want Charedi types living with them.) People just feel more comfortable being part of a community which is unifrom. Just keep in mind that these “acceptance committees” are often only superficial. As long as you look and openly act Charedi (black clothing, no TV or computers except YWN, shun work, noshim know there place, etc) you’re a shoe-in. I always wonder what happens to people who are accepted and later go off the derech. Do they actually throw them out? In places like RBS I can see a family’s life being made miserable until they leave, but what do they do in less extreme places?
(1) This is not a topic for a Frum forum as it will invite every crazy to write some inappropriate comment.
(2) By “noshim” I assume you mean women?
(3) What about enforcement amongst the “anoshim” (men)?
(4) You see, I already contradicted (1).June 15, 2008 5:40 am at 5:40 am in reply to: Out Of The Mailbag: (Flatbush Kiddush: Tznius & Drinking Out Of Control) #1142381
