Umacha Hashem dimah me’al kol ponim.



  1. First and MOST important it is so sad BDE.

    Unimportant but curious, I did not know that there was a non-satmar frum community in Monroe vicinity?
    Or were they just an exception.

    • Quite a number of non-hasidic people live in the area, outside the Metro New York City region, where they can get normal housing etc.

      In fact, there are any number of non-hasidic Yeshivas within 10 minutes of KJ. The town of KJ welcomes them with open arms all the time.

  2. What a tragedy!
    Let’s bear in mind Klal Yisroel are called adam, because we are limbs of one body.
    A Yid is a Yid is a Yid… No need to dissect which sect…
    We are all Yiddishe Kinderlach!
    Let’s put forth effort to have more Ahavas Yisroel!
