I want to move so badly to Lakewood, but only one think bothers me...someone told me that if I have internet they will kick my children from school, or if I have an I phone or a digital camara.
I am the only one that use my lap top, not my children or my husband.
Please somebody explain.

Lakewood is a big place. I don't live there, but my husband's start-up has a satellite office there, and I've spent a good deal of time there lately. Yes, some are like that there, but certainly not all or even most. I'm not from there, so I can't get into specifics about this side or that neighborhood, but I can assure you that if it's a concern, you can find the right place for your family.

I grew up in Lakewood and I'm sorry but that is absolutely ridiculous. Could be they will ask you if you have internet to have a paper signed by yoru rav that it's ok for you to have it. A digital camera? Are you serious? Everyone has them in Lakewood. I have no idea what type you are but maybe if you wear a very long, loose wig, very tight tops, and skirts that barely cover your knees, then you may have a hard time, especially if you are trying to get into one of the more "yeshivish" schools.

First of all, it's not so clear cut, as Morah said, Lakewood is big. And usually if you get an "Ishur" (from a Rav) it's not a problem.

OK I just saw where you wrote digital camera, but I don't know where you got that one from?!? It's not exactly Amish town Smile . I live in Lakewood, and the kids even bring the cameras to school (only on special occasions, because otherwise it's a distraction from their classes and not allowed). It's actually a pressure these days to buy kids their own cameras.

This thread is more than 6 years old; hopefully OP has sorted out the issue by now.

And interestingly enough, if you look at the OP's previous postings, they are all asking questions about the community, under guise that "she" wants to move or open a business, etc. "She" is compiling a profile of the community...

You might want to do a search on this forum about Kol Torah...

Perhaps Texas was better, businesswise. Razz

She wanted to move from Texas to Lakewood and open a plus size ladies clothing store or a jewelry store or a playgroup.

It looks like after five months on ima s/he quit.

Yups. And all the while she is dreaming of opening a business, her husband is out of a job, but oh, he learns at night... So, uh, what exactly is he doing during the day? Polishing his black hat? Or perhaps, trying to infiltrate Jewish discussion forums to plan, chas v'shalom, another terror attack?

Look at "her" spelling. Pretty non-native for someone in Texas! And being the only "Jewish" in her town, you'd think she know a "camara" is quite kosher...

But she knows four languages. English is an issue because she grew up in Isreal.
What a rich life story.

Age of thread and disappearance of OP notwithstanding, I don't think this level of sarcasm is OK.

I'm embarrassed to admit that I actually went ahead and looked up the user's posting history and it doesn't seem to warrant this treatment. Even if it did, there are ways to go about it that don't lower the tone of the forum.

This is so nasty, why did you have to write this?

She explained in another thread that shes not a native American, and she's Israeli, which is probably why her grammar and spelling is off. A little bit of dan lkaf zchus goes a long way....

ETA: Sorry, seeker, didn't see your post....
