Re: The School Crisis
My husband and I both work. We consider ourselves chassidish but we're not affiliated with any particular sect. We speak English and Yiddish in our home. We don't have movies or a TV, we both have smartphones + wifi. We're pretty middle class.

I'm not sure what typical means nowadays. I don't buy into the whole double life many MANY people have today where they are chassidish on the outside and barely shomer Shabbos on the inside. With my husband and I- what you see is what you get.

BYBP expected my 4 yr old to be able to write her own name, draw shapes, identify all aleph bet and alphabet.
Gan Yisroel said no uncle Moishy/yeshivah boys choir/smartphones w/o filter
Bais Yaakov of B said no chalav stam (not that it matters. They didn't want us anyway. We don't fit their type)
Munkatch had no reason with their rejection
Satmar said no radio (yes. Apparently were in the 50's)
Both bobavs said no space
Sora schner, Bais shufra Miriam, BYA, prospect park, yeshiva of B, yeshiva of FB, and a few others never responded to my application despite many calls
BY d'rav Meir called us for an interview but I heard from a few people that they (like vien) are way too posh and would never take us. So we didn't even bother running after them
BY18 has a 3 year waiting list and only accepts siblings

Need I go on?
Sorry for speaking bluntly but either wise up & play the game like everyone else  does or move out of BP

What is a "settlement"?
1 brick, wood, grain, and sheep.

Re: Taharas Hamishpacha Article Discussion For The Married Folk...
Btw can anyone explain the logic in not being able to hand over a baby to the wife when she's a niddah
Question. Does halacha = logical?

If you can drive 3 hours to pick up a stack of red cards,  you can drive an hour and a half to a mikvah

Re: Take Back Lakewood WOW!!! In a historic low for censorship of the press....

Yesterday TLS was in heavy censorship mode and many people who posted comments against the article had their IP address blocked. People who posted my rebuttal on twitter found their twitter feeds blocked.

The one thing that he could not control was the likes and dislikes feature. There were many dislikes on each pro comment (90+) and many likes on each anti comment. This morning - the entire function of liking or disliking a comment was removed from the site entirely since that was the only way for TLS to pretend that everyone is happy with the interview. Hey if there's no dislikes then everyone must like it right??

This is a big part of the problem. With censorship being so heavy in Lakewood, many people are simply unaware of what is really going on in Lakewood......

Re: Clearblue Plus Pregnancy Test, 3 Pregnancy Tests $4.74 (Amazon)
Serious question. We have 4 kids and AFIAK DW has never used one of these. Why are they used so often by some?
They weren't as accurate in the 19th century so...

Re: Take Back Lakewood
Complete radio silence on social media and blogs of the TBL movement. Not even a statement or a tweet commenting.
Did they disband?

Instead of annoying people who want Lakewood to improve, maybe you can find another hobby, like pulling the legs off of ants.

Re: FBI Raids Orthodox Homes and Businesses in Monsey and KJ
DH's statement - besides being a moronic thing to publicize - is pure BS.  Were these families living with 6 children per bedroom sleeping on mattresses on the floor?  Were they sharing a box of pasta for dinner every night?  No, they weren't.  They wanted their cake and to eat it too.  Pure greed and/or entitlement.
I can guarantee every one of these families started taking programs when they were 100% eligible. Once you're hooked to this free money faucet, it's very difficult to stop. Almost like substance addiction, people who were recently poor have a hard time parting with their survival mindset. If we can assign some medical diagnosis to this, maybe the feds would respect their rights. If a man can feel like a girl, a prince can feel like a pauper. 🌈

Re: Messianism among Lubavitch
What do you think would have happened if a fringe group in Ponovez started proclaiming the R' Shach was moshiach?

What do you think would happen if they had a civil war in the yeshiva?
