Why is Flatbush still acting the same?

with 10 comments

Here are my why questions concerning Flatbush/Brooklyn/NY mentality crap that still goes on.

Why are people condemned because of their parents?
Why are people condemned for having a tv/computer?
Why are kids thrown out of school for having a tv/computer at home?
Why are Yeshivas turning a blind eye to how they educate our children?
Why do our schools care more about the money than the education?
Why is it that the rich parents can buy their children out of trouble?
Why are Ravs still not conducting true background checks on all teachers?
Why is it that skirts are so damn short on Yeshivish Women?
Why is it that White Skirts are allowed if they are see through?
Why is it that a skirt when you walk is fine below the knee but everyone forgets what happens when they sit on the bus and a guy is sitting right across from them with a perfect view?
Why is it that BY HS Girls rub up against guys on the bus? (true story and no, not telling which friend told me that one)
Why is it that all of these ‘learning seminars, groups, speakers, etc’ speak to the audiance like we are dumb?
Why is it that the Ravs cannot understand they are supposed to just psak, not give their opinion into the psak?
Why do we continue to put down BTs or Gerim?
Why do we tell our children how they should shidduch date and who they should shidduch date?
Why do Shabbas Table Clothes and Clean Up have to be brought into a Shadchan List of Questions?
Why does the girl need to give her entire measurements in order to be read to someone?
Why is it that perfectly smart wonderful girls cannot find a shidduch just because they are smart and want a true college education and job?
Why is it that Kollel People don’t realize that they need to find a way to bring home the money?
Why is it that Kollel Men waste time outside smoking or drinking coffee for half an hour or longer each day when they are supposed to be inside learning?
Why is it that the Ravs can’t have the guts to finally make smoking against halacha due to its harmful sideeffects? (True story of a famous Rav in Israel stating he wouldn’t rule on it because he believed it was like snuff and therefore not healthy to do but if he ruled then too many adicts would be going against halacha)
Why do we need to outdo one another in the making of simchas?
Why can’t NY People say Good Shabbas to one another on the street?
Why is it that there are over 4 Eruvs in Flatbush and none are kosher? (been told one at least is according to Rav Moshe but no Yeshivish Rav is willing to say anything about it)
Why can’t an Eruv be made that everyone could agree with so we can allow our women to not be homebound?

More whys maybe in the future….

  2. Why are Flatbush people (bloggers) so narrow minded, that they think Flatbush is the only place in the world with these problems? (tongue firmly in cheek! lol)

  5. I’ve noticed that your posts have become more and more right wing.

    Why?

    Some points you bring up make sense:

    “Why are people condemned because of their parents?
    Why are people condemned for having a tv/computer?
    Why are kids thrown out of school for having a tv/computer at home?
    Why are Yeshivas turning a blind eye to how they educate our children?
    Why do our schools care more about the money than the education?
    Why is it that the rich parents can buy their children out of trouble?
    Why are Ravs still not conducting true background checks on all teach?”

    But sometimes you are acting like a fire is raging. Stop trying to force your way i.e.

    “Why is it that skirts are so damn short on Yeshivish Women?
    Why is it that White Skirts are allowed if they are see through?”

    I work in Flatbush and people generally do not dress like that. Calm your horses.

  6. Jacob, I routinely see Yeshivish Women walk around with skirts that are just above their knee or above their knee, beyond the fact that I won’t discuss how much hair they show outside their sheital. While you haven’t seen it, be thankful then, but it is there.

  7. Why is it that everyone rants and raves about how awesome Jewish life in NY is and all I hear is how everyone hates it?

    Why is it that folks who obviously dont belong in there community choose to live there anyway and then complain about it?

    Why is it that people care so much about what other folks think- do your own thing and F— em.

    Why is it that pizza is 2.50 a slice on the upper west side?

    Why is it that all the shadchuns that ask such questions are from Brooklyn?

    Why is it that people cant just seem to believe that its not so easy for some people to find their shidduch?

    Why is it that all the girls and guys in NY are incredibly boring and do the same exact careers?

    Why is it that Brooklyn has the best cheap food?

    Why is it that frummies are such bad drivers?
