    Its time 4 young Lubavitch couples who r not looking 2 go on shlichus & can’t afford CH 2 come 2 Lakewood !! it is so much cheaper 2 live here & we could build a beautiful Lubavitch community here. There r some lubavitchers here. But we must get started, CH is not affordable anymore & young couples r looking 2 move out but have nowhere 2 go. Come 2 Lakewood. We could get a beautiful lubavitch Yishuv here.
