Im very grateful u added the other shuls at the bottom of the article soo i can read the other profiles..

לו i was in crown heights id ask to audit or observe ur next shul interview or report.. so i would also be able to make shul profiles just like this

I grew up in that Shul. I remember PRECISELY how Rav Teitelbaum ZATZA”L said he would NEVER close the Shul. However when some of us decided to buy it, and the DEPOSIT CHECK “BOUNCED” that was when the Rav threatened to sell it.
