Re: Random Posts I always call JFK a third world country, seems like it's regressing, is there such a thing as a fourth world country?

Re: Why do some Jewish communities prohibit women from driving? what @chulent said is true, the more schools that become necessary due to community growth the more specificity there is in each school. And sadly, the more in town the city becomes.
For example, LA is well known for the Chabad, Chassideishe and general community being very well integrated. However, consider that when my wife was in HS there was only one Bais Yaakov. Over the past 15 years they have opened a Chabad Bais Yaakov and a Chassideshe Bais Yaakov. They also opened a second, less academic, Bais Yaakov.
 Will my children feel the same integration that we did?
Consider further, that in my children's K-8, mainstream school (there is also a Chabad school, and a chassideshe school which opened in the last two decades) there is still a broad mix of families, from super yeshivish to TV in the living room. (I'd guess that at this point 99% of the parent body cover hair etc.) Most are squarely in the middle. However, the influences that I have trouble with come clearly from the right, not from the more modern side. Because if the Kleins, go to Bermuda for Pesach, or the Friedman's mommy listens to non jewish music, I can explain that to my children, and show how we have such a awesome and beautiful Torahdige life. However, when Rabbi A.'s daughter has a brand new wardrobe every YT, and my son comes home from Rabbi B.'s home, after playing with his son and asking to continue the video, because they 'have a computer that hangs on the wall in the playroom' and were watching LizardLand or whatever, and Rabbi A. and Rabbi B. are considered by all to be chashuva klei kodesh, and Rabbi C.'s wife has a DVD gemach of kosher movies, which we don't like our kids to watch, I sort of feel like I'm better off with my kids having the more modernishe friends.

Re: Do you Daven?
I must have been living under a rock. I and my chevra would never ever ever think of [not] doing those things. Not to show off or ch"v put people down. But to make statements that sounds like what ur saying is the norm is completely foreign to me. Maybe it's my OOT upbringing. IDK. But I'm blown away.
I would imagine most of us are under your rock
I don't think @iAm is describing normative behavior for the average DDF'er.

Re: Why is our divorce rate rising drastically?
In the past decade, the divorce rate in our community has risen several times over.

This is broadly broken down into 3 groups (in decreasing prevalence)
1- Newly weds. 20s. 0-2.7 years of marriage
2- People who have been married for decades. 50s-60s. children are now teens/out of house
3- Some group in between.

Why is this happening?
The same community where no one davens?

Re: Pesach Programs and False Advertising There are a number of threads discussing programs, would be good to put them together.
Look carefully at ads, many do not advertise hashgocha. They advertise guest speakers, and people assume that if rabbi X eats there so can I. But does rabbi X actually eat there?

Re: Pesach Programs and False Advertising
I don't know this person.  But my gut reaction is that seems very messed up. I can't imagine serving ppl food that I wasn't comfortable with.
Thoroughly discussed and argued elsewhere, there are two distinct schools of thought here. Pesach seems to be more understandable to others than generally serving food you won't eat.

Re: Pesach Programs and False Advertising

1) Reb Moishe never allowed his children to eat CS.
That is straight up baloney

Huh?
The ou sounds clueless based on the facts presented.
Wouldn't this all be avoided by just bringing back the DE?

This is total sheker, the original press release was very clear,  and I posted it above. TLS misrepresented it originally, and is blaming it on the OU
