  1. perhaps the Yeshiva is aware of this and that is why they are asking for traffic to go to 6th Street. The editors at Matzav are reliable and check their info I am sure so follow what they say.

  2. The yeshiva is requesting that those attending the levaya in Lakewood should park in the former Little League Baseball field off of Clfton Avenue and Tenth Street or at the parking lot on North Lake Drive and Second Street and walk from there.

    Yasher koach

  3. There will bezras hashem be a live video hook up to the levaya of Harav Chaim Stein Zt”l in Cleveland tomorrow morning at 9:00 in beis faiga chuppa room.

  4. Wow, tremendous genious! Unbelievable margela depuma! You have a bright future ahead! Maybe you could be the maala makom! Please post more often. You shouldn’t keep your talents to yourself. You must continue to share it with the Tzibbur!

  5. Will there be a video hookup that can be viewed on the internet for those who can’t make it to Cleveland or Lakewood??

  6. Do you really think, your washing the floors with # 6, is going to bring the Geulah any closer? Can’t you be more in control of yourself, during this time of Midas Hadin?

  7. In response to #1x,

    Probably it was logistically easier to get to an airport near lakewood and then get right on a flight to e’y. Also, hypothetically their are more people who can come to the lakewood yeshiva then to the telz shul

  8. Such sarcasm could not have come naturally. It must have taken you years to develop it to such a degree. Too bad you didn’t use the time to develop good midos.
