    2. Why doesn't he just ask his brother if he partakes in "selective acceptance"

  4. I didnt,listen. But any gvir who doesnt give his masser money to support local education shouldn't even try to give deos.

    1. Are you kidding? R' Shlomo Yehuda gives way more than Maaser to Tzedaka, and he is a major supporter of Lakewood Mosdos.

    2. And he doesn't even live in lakewood. Or in NJ, or NY, for that matter.

  5. Who said i was talking about him ? There are other gvirim giving deos who dont give .
    By the way there are many schools in Lakewood that dont know how to make noise and fancy dinners thay cost 250,000 , who have not seen a penny from any of these gvirim.

    1. Well we are talking about him, so it is logical to think that you are talking about him.

    1. You can start with me. I have no money, get breaks on my tuition and have my kids in school.

    2. Well, if you got your kids in school and a tuition break, you must be a very "special" person

    3. No. I am a regular person. No Yichus. No money. No pull.

  8. Dovid lived in lkwd for many years he was a choshuv youngerman learning in bmg in bais eliyohu. He knows and understands lkwd he can give his deah.

  9. These Gvirim live in a bubble. As much as they claim they may have relatives that don't get in to certain schools, their relatives have priority, and would only not be accepted, under the most extreme circumstances.

    They are surrounded and friends with the head of these Mosdos, and here the story from their angle. Even Rechnitz blaming the acceptance policies on other parents, is a result of this.

  10. Dovid L. has no right to discuss lkwd. He moved away and took off his black hat. He is what you call MO. In his book headlines he omits the fact that he ever learned in BMG or lived in lkwd. Hosting fundraiser parties for Hillary does not sit well with many frum Jews. Just another gevir with a microphone discussing controversial issues. Mi Samcha Lerosh??

  11. This is such nonsense. A good kid from a poor family without yichus has a much better chance of getting in than a problem kid from a full tuition family even with some yichus.
