Lakewood house sales have definitely slowed down over the past few years.

The growth of the amount of young kids in Lakewood has also slowed down. Heard this from someone at LSTA.

The growth is in the outlying towns.
The sales are down because there is not much to buy, hence the insane prices these days.

I havent met anyone under 30 that wants to live in Lakewood - it's self fulfilling: all their friends live in Jackson, TR, etc.

How is photos helpful to the story? The whole story would be what the issues were, and what the potential solutions offered were. Instead we get just the photos.

Sounds like some people might still be under the mistaken assumption that the purpose of that website is to provide information to the public.

I get multiple phone calls a day from these guys, they have an unlimited amount of phone numbers so itís no use blocking them. I hope it gets taken care of.

Probably not a coincidence that a docu-series about Telemarketers based in NJ that called on behalf of PBA just came out this week.

TLDR? Here you go;
"If this would happen in the YU they would revoke his ordination and would publicly condemn his actions, while Lakewood and BMG still let him give his shiurim and are all jumping to his defense, total forgiveness!! See? I was right when I left Lakewood for the YU!"

It's a disgusting example of someone who is clearly bitter using his deft writing skills to besmirch an entire community with tons of out-of-context information.

Kudos for him though for not hiding how it's personal to him because he felt shamed for leaving Lakewood and going to YU. But come on, he knows better than this. This is the type of selective reporting and narrative-building that the worst antisemites are guilty of.

What precisely is his evidence that "Kyle" was forgiven?

That BMG didn't put out a press release condemning him?

That his smicha wasn't revoked? (What does that even mean?)

This guy has an agenda. He is on Twitter, always spewing hate against our communities (as an "insider")...

Not to attack anyone, but I didnít find the writing particularly compelling.

I think it's a good piece, he's using Kyle as a springboard to focus on other issues as problems in the community.

Rather than get all defensive, a healthy society should listen and ask "how can we fix this"
