Absolutely ridiculous how bored people are. This was supposed to be a beautiful kosher event during BEIN HAZMANIM. I'm appalled.

This abuse of power has gotten out of hand, until now it was mostly not publicized, but now they have the gall to do so so publicly. I've never been so ashamed of Lakewood before.

Tonight's event highlights multiple issues

  • there are way too many bored bucherim out there
  • Abuse of power by forcing your opinion on others, (Event was 100% kosher, Don't like it stay home or go to shul)
  • It's so easy to pull signatures from R"Y and manipulate others, to a point that it's very sad
  • The Shortage of פרשים so they need to rely on k9 units
  • people think that they control the entire community with a remote control, sometimes they learn the hard way

One more issue.. people that are not supposed to be making events in lakewood are attempting to make.

Who says they were manipulated? The bochurim will tell you that it was a concert in the guise of a siyum and divrei hisorerus. The latter was window dressing for the real show. Whether the bochurim should be deprived of a concert as an outlet during bein hazmanim is a different question, and Iíll leave it at that.

Ironically, this event was to curb A.

BTW the same debate is going on in BP on a different level, if you should permit the boys to go to the אונטרן plays, it's very unfortunate that some will say no just to get attention at the expense of others, and whatever you'll do to accommodate (in ruchniyus) wouldn't be enough

Am I the only one that has such mixed bittersweet feelings about this that it's too hard to explain properly? I'm on both sides if that makes any sense.

So, letís understand,  you wanted to make a Kunzitz, with a siyum and Divrei Chizzuk and someone was AGAINST IT ? What was their problem with it ?  And why did you cave in ??
Why can Mir Yeshiva dinner have music and Bonei Olam have singing and a Time has a siyum and dancing and you cant ??
It makes no sense.
There are, sadly, many people in this town,  with too much time on their hands, who will he moche on everything. You can not give in to them.  Every fund raiser has a kunzitz.  Hatzolah had Pumpidisa,  you can go down the line.  Eatontown had Nissim Black.  I dont chap why you couldnít do a Kumzitz.   This is crazy and getting crazier.
Thanx, Rí Yosef, for all ur efforts on behalf of the bochurim of this town.  May your next event be a smashing success.

you have an issue its not a controlled event? sit down with the organizer identify the issues and work it out, it's not a kunz to BAN
