That simply brings in the money slower, and charges the taxes slower, which is good for people who get large tax deductions (like for giving charity). I'm fine with that.
While one gets a federal tax deduction for charitable contributions, NJ doesn't allow for a charitable deduction on NJ taxes.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

It's fascinating how all of a sudden Agudas Yisroel of America is becoming increasingly involved in the Lakewood political scene.

I'm referring to the recent blockbusting and busing sagas.

In the past I dont recall Aguda being involved in anything Lakewood related. The roshei yeshiva/ vaad ran the show.

They have been slowly getting involved in NJ politics and it is much safer for them to be the public political face. Weren't they R Aharon's political arm?
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

I'm not so certain that Bmg/rak is pulling the strings. Probably, but could be that this is agudas initiative to become relevant+ Avi schnall.
I can't imagine the vaad is happy...

I am under the impression that there is RAK involvement and that it is Agudas initiative to become relevant. I think the Vaad realizes that they have become somewhat toxic and are happy get some nitty gritty aspects off their plate as long as they still get their perks.

BTW when I wrote R Aharon i meant the RY ZTL
