UPDATE On "Monsey Mafia "Rabbonim" bully Restaurant"



Dear readers,
I didn't expect the reaction that I received on social media  in reference to the post titled 

Let me make absolutely clear ...
Those who are familiar with my blog know very well that I am not a journalist, and that is putting it mildly.
 I am a blogger ....

I am not looking for hits, though this post has garnered over 15,000 hits as of this writing.
I do not make any money off this blog and I don't even care if it isn't read at all.

I started this blog originally, so that I could express, primarily, to myself,  my frustrations with what I heard and witnessed ...

As I blogged, a  tremendous burden went  off my chest ... and my blood pressure plunged ...it wasn't meant to be read by anyone.... it was basically a catharsis .... for my own well being ..

When I blog, I don't care about grammar, spelling or how it sounds..and for those curious, I am a Yeshiva Graduate with an under graduate degree from Brooklyn College in Child Psychology and I have my masters in Education from Fordham University.
Sometimes I go back and correct my grammar or spelling ... so you may see corrections if you refer back to it ..... but for the most part, I leave it as it is ....
I am not an "anti-Semite" as some in social media postulated, I am not anti-Chassidic either; ....................
 I love every single Jew .. even Satmar!
I am just expressing to myself, and as the Baalei Musser aptly put it "for those who want to listen in," my frustrations, to what is going on in the frum community..
I have sometimes completely changed my mind, but I don't feel a need to correct myself; I am a blogger and the audience has every right to comment to correct me or write their own opinion....and as long as they are respectful, I'll post the comment.

The above post was a rant ... and I have gotten tremendous positive feedback .... but for those who find my posts offensive, I request that  you to stop reading my blog ... and read instead the lying media..
Whew! There I said it .....I feel great now......

Cut the bull crap, you love when people read your blog, you seem to not get enough of it.

Wow, I applaud you so much and I have now much greater respect for your blog. I must say I too assumed you to be a hater, in the way that the post was written.

Everyone in Monsey is outraged at the intimidation, the blackmailing, etc, and solute you for talking about this very important issue.

But the tone of the post is not very positive, in contrast to this one. Trying to smear and paint everyone in black is not the approach doing any good.

Thanks for clarifying, and I hope future posts will be more to the point.

wow wow wow, that's a totally different tone you are playing now...

listen, i must say, i read the post, and i too assumed that you must be some hater... i'm sorry, but that's what people assume when you are writing a post and throwing in unrelated stuff like "chassidim watching games with their bekeshas on friday nights in the Nyack Bars while mingling with goyim, telling their wives they "went to the tish?"

Really? Did you see that? You are making it sound like it's a weekly thing...

"They also fed their children treif for years in the notorious "Monsey chicken scandal" whose establishment had an hashgacha that was the most stringent .."

Come on, how in the world did you manage to come up with this one? I don't think the finkel rabbi was chassidish at all...

i think you get the point, that the post was written in a way that made it appear like you have lots of venom inside you... but now, after reading this post, you actually seem to be a great guy after all.

I hope future posts like this will be a bit more concise and to the point...

also, fix the link..... it's not working....

Grow up and go deal with significant problems instead of things that are none of your business!

I did NOT find the post hateful at all. The author brought up relevant facts about the way things work in Monsey that need to be addressed and CHANGED! The restaurant should put their TVs back up right away so that all the people who have been waiting for a place like this to open can go and enjoy it. It is downright disgusting for others to interfere. If you do not like it, STAY AWAY!! That is all! It is absolutely ridiculous to have to argue this point!

to the 12:08PM poster - I totally agree with you. If the mashgiach is crapping his pants because of the threats of the goons, find another mashgiach - one not local.
It's about time we tell the goons and their pseudo rabbonim to go straight to hell.

Someone please correct me if I am wrong, but I think the owner of the store wants this mashgiach's hashgacha so the chassidim and EVERYONE will eat there. If he gets a non local mashgiach he won't be able to stay open.
