  1. Feel bad for Wholly schnitzel, however, the days of overcharging for a mediocre product (if that) are long gone. I went there once never to return. There are so many options... Hope other people thinking of opening establishments in Lakewood learn from their mistake.

  2. Where does it mention that the "cooperating witness" is a yid?

  3. If it really was "unzere", many more would have been hit.

  4. We are all in golus today because of the Mesira in the story of Kamtza ubar Kamtza

    We all feel the golus on a daily bases when those in our community disgrace us by reporting their fellow brothers and sisters to the authorities.

    What hurts even more that the reporter is protected and remains anonymous. These reporter believe that they "got away with it" encouraging many more messira to follow them.
    Rabosai! unfortunately the water now cooled off

  5. It started in Westgate. It cooled off a long time ago when all chosheve rabonin stood by quietly then. Just like by bar kamtza

  6. Does anyone understand why they can't build shuls in WG? From what I understand there's no need for more shuls yet but why can't anyone build one? Is it the goyim that moved there recently?

    1. No, its the Yidden Unfortunately among them Rabbonim and roshei mosdos. You obviously are clueless there are no seats and no room for hundreds of children and parents to go daven in shul on shabbos. There is a tremendous need for more shuls in WG.

    2. So where do they daven? There are mamash fathers davening at home every shabbos? I was assuming there's no need based on what I've heard and whenever I'm there there's plenty of room in the shul that wanted to build a year ago.

    3. Yes they don't come to shul they stay at home. Fathers are davening in dangerous conditions. But you have no shame to publicly state what you heard or assume, as fact.

  7. No it's the yidden that moved there years ago!

  8. I dont believe there was messira involved here i think its just the prosecution trying to scare people.... there is also a rumor that 800 plus cases are being investigated that i think also is bluff. They had these cases for a few years some seem to have been aproaching staute of limitations so they threw them all together to make a pr circus. We need to be carefull but dont get into a panic because they say so thats what they want

  9. For those feel so strongly about Westgate's problems why don't you start a Westgate blog?

    Like most people who live in Westgate I know there are many problems and hate the mafia. But I look it at as "that's life there is nothing you can do about their rishus" and try to not let it get to me. If you however feel so strongly about this issue that you can't let it go why don't you start an online forum for POSITIVE change?

    Caution: You will have to be actively looking for positive viable ideas.DON'T start another kvetch blog. Hocking about how bad the mafia is won't get you anywhere and will only turn you and those who go on it into miserably unhappy Baaley Machlokes.

    1. I fully agree that people have to stop kvetching if they want change but I don't know what Mafia you're talking about, I've lived there for many years and there is no such thing. Who is part of this "MAFIA" you claim exists? Do you and others call them the mafia simply because they opposed Rabbi H building a shul at that location?

      I actually think the people that kvetch here DON'T WANT change, they are kvetching for the sake of kvetching!!! They're crying over spilled milk from a long time ago that everyone forgot about and many never even knew about.

    2. Westgate mafia is a euphemism for those who control most of what does and more importantly doesn't go on in Westgate.

      The biggest rishus they did was prevent Rav Helberg from building a desperately needed shul. But it isn't limited to him. They hate ALL who try to build shuls. I've seen with my own eyes their efforts to prevent "Kehilas Westgate" from opening

  10. Really? In what way did they try to stop Kehillas Westgate from opening? Rabbi Zimbal encouraged it and was very supportive. He even asked some members of the big shul to join to help it get started.

    1. Please don't associate Rabbi Zimbal with the WG mafia.

      I was once learning in the WG shul. The people around me were talking furiously about how to prevent Kehilas Westgate from opening. This is my last comment on this issue. Please have the last word and convince me that I'm wrong and don't know what I'm talking about.

  11. The Mafia is a core group of around 25 who were living in WG many of them have moved out but still hog seats in the Ropshits shul. They were rodof anyone who dared open a shul in wg. They were Rodef Rav Walkin, Rav Flamm, and other Rabbonim and Westgate residents. They Massered on Rav Oelbaums shul, they were Rodef Rav Helberg and the mispalelim there, They never let Rav Halpern a Talmid Chochom and Posek to pasken any shaalos. They forced Rav Vercheleiser to accept their rule and dictated to him the zmanim of his shul despite it being an inconvenience for his health. Their own Rav Rabbi Zimbal said he has no control over them and someof the maffia who daven there have said publicly hes a hired man just like the janitor. Rav Zimbal knows about the lack of seating in westgate and said he would welcome any shul. Today most people who move in are making minyanim in private homes or going to shuls outside wg. Lots of people are davening in Lutzk. The mafia have not gotten over their old grudges and are in תמות נפשי עם פלשטים mode. There are a few rabbonim on their payroll who are beholden to them and they used them to continue the rishus. Kinah and sinah is what drives them. Nebach they have children is shiduchim and some are already zaidy's but this is their life mission to deny anyone else from building a shul. To stop Rav Helberg and his kehilla, to not allow their own mispalelim in Bais Medrash of Westgate to have seats.
    Who has the achrayus and Pleitzus after 120 for denying hashems children from davening in shul?

  12. Rabbi Zimbal has said many times that he has nothing against Rabbi Helberg's shul and that he would encourage them building. Problem seems to be the people that "hired him the same as they hired the janitor". If you're a puppet with someone pulling your strings then you can't always act out your promises.

  13. Please don't make this your last comment. Could you give us one more comment? Just one?

  14. What are you talking about? That comment was in defense of Rav Zimbal. Stop looking to be a kochleffel.
