Bringing Agudah to Lakewood

Friday night at the Convention there was an unscheduled meeting to discuss how to fully bring Agudah, shuls and all, into Lakewood.

In attendance were: The three Agudah Heads, Lakewood head honcho Aron Kotler, and a number of wealthy lakewooders.

Agudah has long wanted a real presence there but due to Yeshiva's fear of losing control it has never materialized.

If you want complete , carte blanche say you better be the only soloist in the choir.

Please keep the conversation civilized.

You need an umbrela group to lobby and advocate a variety of issues.

Agudah is is not atracting membership amongst the younger generation.
That is precisely why they're now aiming at Lakewood.
