I remember the day it changed

Was it caused by a specific event?

TLS just came out that the letter banning the event was forged.
No, TLS (a sponsor of the event) claimed a different letter from mosdos had a signature forged and they are using that to cast doubt on the Roshei Yeshiva letter.

Yes. When BMG roshei yeshiva came out against the billboards. It was a complex story, but that was the nail, and he switched dramatically. He seems to have since come back to some extent, but he is no longer a guaranteed supporter of everything yeshiva anymore.

Why does TLS say "Large Lakewood Mosad"? If it was fake why wouldn't they mention the name of the Mosad which was "forged"

That sounds like a good enough reason for BMG to come out with a Kol Koreh against TLS

If anyone wanders into this thread now they will get the feeling that the future of Lakewood is Chabad...

B"H the future is bright!

Hi! Let me introduce you to @Yehuda57 and his signature.

A quick search on DDF reveals that @Yehuda57's signature was actually also in response to him referring to MO.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
