So many are leaving now for more affortable options, meaning the donations are leaving CH too, need to find a way to help locals with better income, please open like in Lakewood an organization that helps with profeccional career and higher educaion, where we can all find better parnosah to afford this type of living. When Mesivtah is $15K-25K and pre1A-5th grade -$12K, playgroup 12K for a year, yes and its only 9-3pm, when your salary goes toward it and after tax you left with nothing.

Don't Pay Back Creditors 100%
May 29, 2023 11:00 pm

In addition to community support, how about incorporating bankruptcy law to wipe out 90% (Chapter 13) to 100% (Chapter 7) of the debt. Perhaps a “friend” can buy the house if there is too much equity above exemptions. Married couples can have almost $360,000 of equity in the house. Bankruptcy can also be used as a negotiation tactic.

expenses are just out of control, even with my stamps and benefits it feels like crown heights is off limits

we need our own upstate community like Monroe, KJ where we can have more space, land and more control over our resources ??

Donate to help the family with basic living expenses but file for bankruptcy which will wipe out all the credit card and loan debt.

To sustain a family you need at least $5-10K per month in CH…he probably did bankruptcy to his business but meanwhile the family need food and roof.
