It's the Koson'er rebbe (14av BP) and 40 families.
There is someone backing it financially to get it off.
For the start, they will bus kids to BP.
My neighbor sold there home and purchased a one there.
Yup, the yeshivish plan fell through. Now chassidim got approval for their shul, to the total chagrin and dismay of the modox community. They fought hard,but the can't win...

Yup, just when the modox were rubbing their hands with glee, thinking they were finally rid of the yeshiva and yeshivish, the chassidim moved in on them. In a big way.

gotta get to the train, then transfer downtown. still commute from passaic doesnt look worse than 5 towns. can u recommend shuls?
Can't recommend shuls but I have a cousin there who is definitely in a modox one. He is in Passaic not Clifton. In all the train should not be anywhere near the time you said.

Beth Shalom would probably meet more of your criteria than R' Hirsch.

Way too many refugees moving in over the past 2 years. Don't need the marketing anymore.

the marketing would help bring in improved restaurants, perhaps, even if not new people. There are enough CLE families to support some dining locations to upgrade/improve, or expand.

Bad example. My family grew up in JC, and the area ppl moved to is literally the worst (cheapest) part of town.

Yeah,it's a recent thing that an eiruv became an absolute necessity. I don't understand why though... Especially if ppl have backyards etc
Not around my crowd.

My daughter actually moved OOT and her family is one of the few in her community that donít rely on the Eiruv. I guess when both she and her husband grew up without it, and having some other priorities (despite the social difficulties that stem from not relying on an eiruv), it isnít that important.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I'm not familiar with the situation there.
But shouldn't that be the reason for tons off ppl to buy ? they don't need to move right away.

Depends how bad the area is. And Iím not sure they all were buying as an investment, though I donít know anyone that moved.

My point was that 40 ppl moving to a place is going to take years IF it ever picks up.

I think the last couple pages should be splintered off into a new "New Out of Town Communities Growing Like Mushrooms" thread, or something like that.


Anyway, here's another con for Clevland:  :P

Birkat hamazon hakatzar.

Thoughts, discussion and sources. Is it appropriate for kids who don't bentch? Or is it bad chinuch?
reb baruch hirschfeld said you shouldnít do it since itís bad chinuch
