The location of the new development is in Pasco County, Tampa FL.
They chose this location,
Firstly, because they only wanted a red state (I know FL is a swing state but red enough for our needs)
Secondly, because Pasco counties population is at around 500,000 and they have a dream of having 10 million within the next 10 years, and 50% of the residents should be working within the county, hence, they are very accommodating and helping out with what they can, to make this a reality.

Did you mean 1 million within 10 years?
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

First of all, in my OP I mentioned its Shloime Taussig, I was wrong,  Its Rabbi Yisroel Taussig he has the Beled shul in BP.

I thought Shloime Taussig was the Beled Ruv from BP, took over when his father died a few years ago. Is that not the case?


then there is also HOA (homeowner's association)

Iím hoping this initiative works and then the Lakewood askanim do something similar in a closer State like Pennsylvania
Lakewood "askanim" have way too much money invested in Lakewood real estate and infrastructure to voluntarily open a competing community. Remember Sloatsburg? According to reports at the time, the Lakewood askanim pushed hard against it.

Sorry was my mistake, their dream is to have 3 million within the next 10 years.
either way, the numbers make no big difference to us at the moment.

Sounds very interesting! Thanks for the update! Please post more info as you get them.
Whether it works or not is to be seen but I love seeing people trying to get out of the Sodomite NYC. About time

🤮

Shloime took over their father's shul, his brother opened his own shul on 12 & 50 and he's the one involved with this. Btw they get along afaik.

P.S. I can see the headlines now " Florida Hasidic man ... "  :P

Do you know Rabbi Yisroel Taussig?
I sat with him and his wife for an hour and half, they seemed very nice, but I would love to hear what type of people they are, are they liked in their shul?

IIRC it was just R Elya Svei telling Simon Glick not to

as far as Lakewood opening new places, very hard to find the interest
As R Shmuel Lefkowitz (in)famously said his piece about pioneering ( https://nj1015.com/is-orthodox-rabbi-pushing-blockbusting-jackson-wants-investigation-watch )
There was a push to make Mddleburg NY work with a yeshiva, never went anywhere, Vineland they are still dreaming about, Egg Harbor Twp they even had a Kollel travel there
There is now a Yeshiva in Hamilton NJ with dreams of a community
Hazelton PA was a spot they tried numerous times
Florida at least has vouchers... but so does South Bend and they advertise and get nothing

Itís difficult to create your own ďmatzavĒ within an existing community especially if you came at their invite.

Pasco County does have a Chabad house. The shliach down there called it red neck country back in the day.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

He told me that the local shaliach is helping him out a lot
