I heard there are some politics going on between the Maui and Kauai Rebbes, and the Kauai chasidim in Maui opened their own shtibel. The whole beach is full of pashkevill'en.

Double shabbos for the snags!  We're gonna be soooooo fat....

And, you guys can be our shabbos guy for one of them.
alol!

If only this could be a reality.

Jews, by and large, live in some shnasty places.

Flatbush? Crown Heights? Chicago? New Jersey? Blech.
The ones who live there are the ones proud of it.  Have you seen DDMS comments whenever I mention CLE?
It's like reading YouTube comments. This from folks who have never stepped foot into CLE.
Probably never even step foot outside NY and FL.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I live on the East Coast, though I'm not from here, and will readily tell you this place is crap.

I dismiss out of hand those people who comment on the objective and absolute beauty and allure of their home town, while at the same time admitting they've never seen anywhere south of Lakewood or Philly. So, no, I try to stay away from DDMS comments.

No one with their head on straight can tout the benefits of NY/NJ beyond: 1) Jewish convenience (restaurants, schooling options, etc), and 2) bustling business center.

The end.

That both exist to some extent in other places that come with a higher quality of life. Unless you need 57 schools for your children to choose from?

I agree they're important, but look at all the cons?

Besides, does one NEED so many restaurants to be able to be happy? I'd submit the happiness one would get from living OUTSIDE of NY would far outweigh the happiness you'd lose by not having 101 restaurants to choose from.

NEED is a strong word, but it sure is nice. In order to actually pick up and move from Ny, the positives have to far outweigh the negatives. Being that a lot of us have jobs, family, conveniences etc.. it does not make sense to leave.

Family is the even larger sticking point.  Half of the girls in Flatbush would simply never entertain moving OOT and away from "mommy and daddy and kosher pizza."

I have been working on my wife for a few years, she is slowly but surely seeing the light. (This winter sure is helping my cause!)
