Why the double standard?
Submitted via comment. letter in support of the bais Horaah was signed by Roshei yeshiva and Rabbonim, Rav Shlomo Miller shlita wrote a strong letter about those who went to the township (in his words mesira) to have a shul shut down. Yet at the same time in WG there was out right mesira on a existing shul that is looking to expand and build a bigger Bais Medrash as the shul has long outgrown its current quarters. A Lawyer was hired and paid for by unzere to oppose the shul who brought up issues about the property that had no shaychus to any of the issues of concern opposition just to stop a shul! This is after there was a din torah and Rabbonim ruled the shul can build. why is there no outrage? why no letters? How can we allow this to go on? does it come down to whomever screams loudest or have deep pockets?
