  1. This lady never studied the midresh in mitzzriyum we had 6 kids at a time! Miricles happen. Now take into account modern medicine, cleaner water,vitamins, Facebook, and the United davening of klal Yisroel, all the hidden jews and it becomes more and more plausible . I hate it when people don’t recognize the power of hasim. . Yiden don’t be fooled by her modern math. Hashim knows better, trust me. Shabbat shalom!

  2. Was the caller, a virulent anti Semite, told that Muslims have 3-4 wives and their Quran tells them that they must take over the world? Was the caller told that when a girl is born her father is supposed to keep a ledger of all the expenses he had while raising her and that the prospective “boy” has to repay him all that money!
    Talk about who’s interested in taking over the world!

  3. The whole thing is ridiculous from both sides of the discusssion for many reasons. For one, Unfortunately only 10% of the jews in america are orthodox and this includes every one who identifies as orthodox including modern orthodox. (I’m assuming that the above discussion does not include modern orthodox for several reasons. One is that they normally have smaller families. Maybe more than the average American family but likely less than the number cited by the caller) So in fact the numbers used above are way off. Which means you can remove one zero from her number of jews included in her calculation. Or add one zero to her final number of kids per woman.
    The source for the 10% is the following link. Although their numbers are likely off since it is probably more. (There are many reasons for the discrepancy. ) presumably it is still not more than 15-20 %.

  4. But the pacifiers are too expensive. We can not possibly think our ladies will have more than fifty!

    Pretty funny. We might not take over the world but we will educate it. Good example has hope.

    B’h.

  5. robert…comment #2….she did not say “jews are tricky”. why don’t you listen more carefully. she said to the caller, “I KNOW YOU THINK jews are tricky”. you’ve got this ‘everyone is an anti semite’ paranoia. we have enough anti semites in the world without you adding to them.

  6. Another big variable left off in addition to Akiva Rassner’s computation to factor; married women of child bearing age, approximately 18 – 40 (and considering the shidduch crisis), I’m sure that drops to less than 30% of his figure. So we are now looking at about 90,000 Jewish orthodox women, which brings it to about 3500 children/woman.

  7. Mike–As a listener of her show I can tell you that Judi Franco is a fully observant Orthodox Jew herself whose children are all day school educated, daughters and sons in law are frum and learn full-time in Kollel, one in Lakewood and one in Brisk and she was being sarcastic when she made those comments and was mocking the typical Anti Semitic sentiment—“Jews are tricky”. Get it?
    We have a hard enough time getting people in the media saying good things about us. Please appreciate when someone does.

  8. Mike–As a listener of her program I can tell you that Judi Franco is a fully practicing observant Jew whose children are all day school educated. Her sons in law and daughters are frum and sons in law learn full time one in Lakewood and one in Brisk. Her comments were sarcastic and mocking the typical anti Semitic attitude. “Jews are tricky” etc. Get it? It’s rare enough to see someone in the media stand up for us, please don’t discourage prominent people from doing so by being critical. Let’s stand behind her.

  11. Oh My Gd
    Listen Chevra ,
    We need to rethink this policy.
    With just tuition and black hat prices the plan is doomed to fail. Also, I don’t know of any woman willing to have more than 30 children. Can you imagine the amount of laundry?
