The reason why the yeshivalite didn't like the balebatim moving in, had nothing to do with the fact that they were working. It was because of the Gashmiyus that they had in their lives. They were bringing gashmiyus to ruchniyusdike Lakewood. And their fears were true. In the old days, no one had a fancy house or car. Today the standards went up tremendously by Bnei torah. It wasn't bias, it was bringing in a different focus on life. They changed the whole culture in Lakewood.

Now, do you have a right to stop someone from changing your culture, is a different question. But it had nothing to do with hate/bias, that's a complete misrepresentation.

I don't think anyone would disagree with this. If they do, they are lacking in basic knowledge of how lakewood came about. 

. . .And thats where/how all the problems started.. .

Suffice it to say, if I would have known what it would have caused I would not have posted it  :-[

People just can't hold themselves back on the Hating.

I'm not sure if they hate God,Torah,Jews in general or just have an inferiority complex.
Why do they go so berserk  ??? ???

Lakewood has some internal problems just like every community but overall its the best place to live.
I did not grow up here but I lived here moved out of town and returned.
I don't think I will leave again (to another US City).
I think some people feel somehow slighted when they can't get into the most Yeshivish school when they don't Act or Dress Yeshivish.
If they don't want that lifestyle why force it on their kids?
There are very few people who can't get into "Any" School. Just not the one they want.
My sister had the same thing in Flatbush.
They told her that there are 30 slots and 24 siblings and over 300 apps.
It took a lot of Phone calls and Nudging to get my nephew in.
Still can't man/woman up, that it was L"H.  :)
I got nothing against ya, Mimi, I agree Lakewood's a great place.

I misspoke before, the menahalim are great. I meant the Rashei Mosdos. Some are great. Some are Baalei Gaavah w/o an ounce of Lesheim Shamayim in them.

I think because there are way too many arguments involved with Lakewood, I don't think the Forum needs another argument thread.

That thread was about how many lkwd based visitors visit this site has. . . it was mostly about how IP's aren't good proof of where people are based. . .
The point of that thread was too move the arguments from this thread over to that thread so we can keep this one clean and useful.

Agreed, but it didn't really help because the argument still continued.

@Mods
This is a conversation that would qualify for the "other" thread.

Why does an informational thread need to be taken OT and clogged up with random discussions??

IMO yes, much more. I never took a census though so that is obviously debatable. Though what bothers me most is how quick and far they get off the derech, (and yes this is based on my experience, not statistics.)

I dont think there are more in Lakewood, but kids who grow up in more religious families tend to go way farther then if a person grew up in "less" frum family that I do agree with.

Noone said that.
But the concept is actually basic kabalah/chassidus. The lowest sparks in this world come from the highest sources just as the top brick on a wall that falls goes the furthest away from the base.
