      My son is in a 1br with 3 babies. We need these apartments for our families
      No I’m not being selfish.
      A non-shomer shabbos can live anywhere. My co workers drive over an hour to their churches and parents on a regular basis and the distance is not an obstacle. (Some actually like it)
      But if we move more than walking distance we have lost our community, our shuls, even or kosher shopping

    to answer questions above probably no to all. seemingly only the bachurim matter what about Anash what about No Bachurim / girls are we all stuck with having to fork over big money to be there especially if we can’t afford that exorbitant cost? I personally can’t afford it. When I or others seek a place there is no response or we are told pay up! it would be nice if someone posted info & a positive response But I for pne won’t hold my breath

    This is unacceptable. How is it that something good can be done for someone who is not me. I have needs too.

      If you feel you are in need – as many others seem to claim, by all means, there are many tzedaka organizations that ill provide you and your family with basic needs like food and shelter. As a landlord, I keep separate my business from my tzedaka. I give generously tzedaka but I also charge a fair market rent. The tzedaka helps people in need. If you are poor, go collect from my tzedaka through the organizations but don’t ask me for a handout.

    the rental situation is cruet and not what the Rebbe wants.
