I spoke to Rabbi Gersten in the OU who arranged this new mechira with Rabbi Belsky ZTL and he told me it was only meant to work as a b'dieved. Rabbi Belay felt the old mechira was worthless.

I also spoke to the Rabbi in the Chof-K who worked with Rabbi Belsky ZTL and who is actually the one who makes the mechira with C&S! I spoke to him again this year. He told me it is only done to make the best possible b'dieved. He confirmed with me that it is not meant to be relied on as a l'chatchila.

That is also the current position of the Star-K and AKO.

Facts matter.
I guess the crux of my statement was your statement that the Chof-K doesn't approve of it can't be true if they are the ones handling the mechira


Another example is chometz after Pesach. Most Vaadim do not allow purchasing chometz from C&S distributor l'chatchila. That is OU, Star-k, Chof-K, AKO and most Vaadim standard. This was also the opinion of Rabbi Belsky ztl. Our Vaad does allow our local stores to purchase chometz from C&S im.mediately after Pesach. Those who want to be mehader have no place to shop after Pesach locally.)

The statement about Pesach and C&S is wrong and based on the old situation. The Chof-K took over the mechira from the prior Rov who was handling it (which was a more controversial/questionable mechira) and in between that, before Chof-K took over, R' Belsky actually wrote a new shtar himself that they used for a short while

How much is worth paying to go to Fordham over Cardozo (assuming Cardozo offers full)?
You can also go back to Fordham and explain what Cardozo is offering and see if they will offer anything to make the decision easier for you

Back in the day Cardozo full meant you must keep a B+ average and allegedly they didn't randomly spread these students among the sections essentially stacking the odds against them.


Do you honestly think the local infrastructure can support it?
Yes. With some more traffic. Could be healthy growth

what are the benefits?
More people who need housing can find what they need. Your friends, your kids, cousins, etc. A little traffic is worth it so they can have what you (hopefully) have - - a house

Anyone able to get rid of the ants that invade every season?
Trick is to get ahead if it by putting bait traps all over early in season. Once you're infested it's much harder to get rid of

I cannot believe that at all..can you please get more info. regarding that? your saying you think a frum jew bought the Redfern housing buildings??? I cant believe that just yet..pls confirm
Not the Redfern housing. That's govt owned and in NYC. Believe he's referring to the other housing that's in Inwood but also low rent/subsidized

There must have been some major religious event/pilgrimage somewhere. On the return flight it looked much more like a regular airport
