I hear there is a new community starting in union NJ. A few pioneers are moving in from Israel and there is a yeshiva moving there too.

Housing is relatively cheap ( unless you absolutely MUST live in a fancy duplex, in a fancy complex in Lakewood..)

It's a great location for jobs in NYC north jersey.

Schools options are Passaic or Edison.

Who's in??

new? in Union? isn't that where all the klosenberg people live?

Or that it aligns with your hashkafa, but you're just too addicted.

Yeah, I heard Linden yeshiva is moving there.
So you think this can actually take off?

This a very unique situation. - a new litvish/yeshivish community in the tri state.

To paraphrase both: You fooled us and got the approval. We found out. You're hosed.

You cannot begin to compare NYC job options to almost anywhere else.

Hundreds of Lakewood ppl make the nasty commute everyday. It is horrible.


Besides, most ppl have family in the tri state. this is not like living 8 hours away from the family.
