My child applied as an 18 year old and only now was sent a letter at age 34 to see if he is still interested. Please note this is NOT a guarantee and the wait time is YEARS! The process has also changed to be now by LOTTERY from the list.

Which jew will want to live in a complex with 700 beds of a MICA shelter. Google the acronym to see what exactly is heading our way. Mentally ill. The whole project has to be stopped. The ONLY way it can be stopped is by suing Kathy Hochul for dumping an insane amount of mentally ill and elderly men etc in ONE neighberhood.Even the Chinese fought this.

And what about the Jewish immigrants? Where’s your אהבת ישראל? We’re living with our 8 children in 2,5 bedroom apartment with one bathroom. No family. No brothers, sisters, just immigrants. Do you hate us? No רחמנות?

Who are you anyway? Why would your real life be more important then what a billionaire who has no values campaigns about?!

Of course immigrants are bad. I mean only naturally born citizens deserve anything, because they didn’t have to work or sacrifice anything at all. Get real.

Don’t do anything at all if you can’t do exactly what I decided is most important. Sorry what I believe everyone (obviously – I mean why wouldn’t everyone agree with me) believes is most important.

Was very impressed with the 5 at the election meeting

We need to vote for the 5 young people if we want change.

Young is not a qualification. Dedicated, experienced, not beholden to one segment of the community vs the rest, and willing to listen

When the whole slate of 5 are ALL from the same Shul, is that not a concern?

If you are on the list for specific addresses, can that application help?

Some of the members of the slate are literally Johnny come lately instead of never done anything productive for the community or for themselves. I don’t want to mention anyone by name but the coalition would get a lot more votes if they just picked more wisely. Chaplain Jake Goldstein has experience Darius in leadership and government, And yes while he may have faults like anybody serving in commutal affairs for a long time he definitely brings something to the table that none of the 5 do. I agree vote 5 candidates But make sure Chaplin Goldstein is one of… Read more »

How can a community council that has anything to do with community needs and government funding hold an election that does not allow women to vote??? How it it even legal???
