on: July 13, 2013, 11:21 PM

Do you think it's better for kids to grow in an in-town community or an out-of-town community and why????

Now I know you read Hamodia.

I agree with Rabbi Ilan Feldman.

i didn't read the article so i don't know what ur referring to, but i think out of town is so much more how i want my kids to grow up. and i'm actually originally from ny and have friends there, so i keep vacationing there. i think ny is good for vacation and shopping. everything else is great out of town! in general, much less of a pressure to be like the jonses...i mean, you still have it, but much less, and same with materialism in general. also much friendlier place, ppl actually good shabbos when passing by other ppl in the street on shabbos...large frum community but not as crowded in the streets...i really love it oot.

Hamodia asked a panel of Rabbonim about whether it's better for kids to grow up in town or out of town.

Well, I'm an in-towner, and don't feel like arguing about this. It's like asking "What's better - vanilla or strawberry ice cream?" Well, what do you like? It all depends on who you marry, where you can get a job, where you choose to live, and your personal needs. Some people do better IT. Some do better OOT. Some are happy either way so long as they are with their spouse. 🙂

Agree with patcha. U can't say one is better. To each their own. Just so happens in my year of sem the NY girls were so simple and incredibly nice and friendly, and the snobs and cliques were made up if out of towners. So there! I personally loved growing up in the city where I have tons of frum girls my age and I'm not forced to be friends with whoever happens to be living in my community, and just in general it's so beautiful to be surrounded by tonz and tonz of frum people all the time and kosher everything is available at any time of day or night! But oot is nice too in some ways so it's really a preference!

OOT is much better. You can't compare.

It's like comparing ice cream to ice cream headaches.

definitely OOT, in town has its "convenience" sometimes but to raise balance children OOT is the way to go

It's like comparing an ice cream truck that goes to many places and has very few flavors, to an ice cream store that has an endless variety of flavors, but is only in one place. 🙂
