Dominating the catwalk called Brooklyn’s streets

with one comment

Ah summer.

Yes, we do call the streets over here a catwalk.

The yentas get out of the house meeting with their fellow yentas. They dress up like they want to make men have an instant heart attack at the sight of them. They bring an air of hautiness that we experienced first hand from a very well known Bais Yakkov School Principal who was exceptionally rude and of course completely normal for a higher than thou group of elitists.

Yeah we bitch and we complain about Brooklyn and we don’t make it a secret that we aren’t sure we’ll stay in the NYC area. G-d Forbid that we have our children grow up with having to deal with the idiocy of the Yeshivish World inside the closed box that we call the NYC Area. But why do we even bitch and complain?

Because we do hope that maybe, just maybe someone will sit and think and not be the proverbial idiot and wonder what the frell is going on here. We don’t mind if you wish to go, as a religious Jew, to wear a speedo or a bikini to walk down the street of Avenue J…however there is the following issue that we have.

Don’t, for the love of G-d, state that you are better than anyone, that you have the right to condemn others, the right to push others away, the right to be elitist, the right to be a typical Yeshivish biatch or bastard when you cannot follow what your Rabbis say to do. There is no Rav in the Yeshivish world that allow over two inches of hair to be shown, or a skirt to be above the knee, or that you can see your colored underwear through your white skirt, or that you can try and hit on a married man pushing his child down the street.

You want to be religious, fine. You want to do what you want, fine…because we do. But don’t think you are better than anyone else.

A Jew is a Jew. Don’t forget it. No one is better than the rest. You’ll find that out when you stand before the Judgement of Hashem after iyh 120 years and you realize that you aren’t any more special than the Soul ahead of you or behind you.
