  1. God bless the family that has the ability to have at least $14000 worth of jewelry at home. After housing costs, tuition, shul membership, food, and health care I will settle for a candy-ring piece of jewelry.

  2. assuming the video is from min the house – he is on the phone meaning that someone is guiding him thru the sizeable house so maybe its the goytas boy friend? or some inside job ( he doesnt just happen to be on the phone during a robbery.
