New Satmar Village Developer Reportedly Used Deception To Manipulate Small Town

Der Yid front page of insert for Kiryas Yated Lev 9-2013Bloomingburg's residents were kept in the dark about the nature of Shalom Lamm's new housing development and a private girls school he said he wanted to build in the tiny town's small downtown. But now residents know that the development will be a Satmar-only village and the school will be a Satmar-only school.

New Satmar Village Developer Reportedly Used Deception To Manipulate Small Town

The Pine Bush School District, which includes the town of Bloomingburg, says that a private girls school to be built in the small town would mean higher taxes for thousands of residents.

A developer, Shalom Lamm, wants to build the 16-room school in an 18,000 square foot building to be constructed by him in the Bloomingburg’s downtown.

Lamm, who owns the Wurtsboro Airport, is also developing a 396-townhouse development in Bloomingburg – a development that was reveled only yesterday to be a new Satmar-only village.

The Times Herald-Record reported last month that Lamm has refused to comment on who the townhomes would be marketed to or what the nature and affiliation of the girls school would be, except that it would be private.

"Would we even be having this discussion if the application said 'The St. Ignatius Loyola School’?,” Lamm reportedly said.

An analysis of the fiscal impact of the school and Lamm’s development prepared for Lamm reportedly says the private school would be used for “the new Chestnut Ridge community" Lamm is developing. It claims that Lamm's development would mean additional annual school taxes for the district of $2.2 million. After related costs, the project would "easily yield a net contribution [to the school district] of well above $600,000 annually" to the district, Lamm’s analysis reportedly claims.

However, state law requires local public school districts to provide "transportation, special education, health and welfare, textbooks and technology" to students in private schools – even private religious schools – and "the local taxpayers would incur another burden,” Pine Bush schools Superintendent Joan Carbone wrote in a letter.

The experience at Kiryas Joel, the first Satmar hasidic village which is located in Orange County, New York, would tend to prove Lamm wrong – very wrong. Many properties there are listed as tax exempt, the number of students requiring special education – which must be paid for by the school district – is extremely high, and Kiryas Joel is the poorest municipality in the entire United States with an extremely high number of its Satmar-only residents receiving various government welfare and aid dollars.

Bloomingburg has a population of 420. Although some are Jews, none appear to be hasidim.

Yesterday, after months of secrecy the Satmar-hasid-owned Brooklyn-based Der Yid newspaper announced that a new Satmar-only village would be launched in Bloomingburg. Large townhomes were offered for sale in Yiddish-only ads (one is posted above) – an apparent violation of fair housing laws – for as low as $250,000 each.

"If a girls' school is built, a boys' is sure to follow," a local resident, says Nikki Latreille, told the Times Herald-Record, adding that she was afraid that Lamm’s development would mean that the Pine Bush district could one day be run by people "without the best interest of all the children.…And it's not a matter of anti-Semitism," she reportedly said, noting that her own son's bar mitzvah took place at Chabad-Lubavitch of Goshen.

Apologies to : Small Town by John Mellencamp:

Nu, I just bought me a small town
And I fibbed in a small town
"Gevalt!" I schrei in a small town
Oy, those small - travesties

All my friends have such small minds
My chevra will swarm this once sane small town
Snow job in this small town
[I'll]Provide little diversity, oy!

Educated like an ass-clown
Taught to fear my Rebbe with a small frown
Used to daydream 'bout chasing Goyim 'round
Another boring Hasidic that's me

But I've bought it all in a small town
Had myself some bail in a small town
Married a Willie Burg doll and brought her to this small town
Now she smells brown just like me

Nu, I cannot forget running from Cossacks was fun
I can dress like people who loathed me
Yeah, I can be a stereotype here in this small town
And become whatever my Rebbe wants of me

Got nothing against Willie town
Still Hasid enough to say
Look who's in Willie town
But my goldmine is a small town
Oy, that's rich enough for me

Well I was spawned in a small town
And I can breed in a small town
Gonna die in a small town
Oy, that's prob'ly where my Ohel will be

I've said this many times... YL is a Tzaddik in my world.

The headline to the advertisement reads: "Finally, a Solution!"

The residence of Bloombsburg will, unfortunately, yearn for a Final Solution. How horrible.

However, state law requires local public school districts to provide "transportation, special education, health and welfare, textbooks and technology" to students in private schools – even private religious schools – and "the local taxpayers would incur another burden,” Pine Bush schools Superintendent Joan Carbone wrote in a letter.

OK...obviously, this Supt. doesn't know what he is in for! He will be gone as soon as this development and it's voting bloc of well over 1,500 votes turns down every budget. This will be East Ramapo North. Hope NYSED is paying attention!

The only solution is a preemptive tactical nuke.

Another case for D'Agostino.

I found this on Wikipedia: The Village of Bloomingburg is in the Town of Mamakating.
Mamakating has a population of over 12,000.

I'm no government expert, but why can't Bloomingburg cede it's independence to Mamakating, which with a population of 12,000 might be able to stop the wholesale pillage by our own modern day Cossacks.

Did Satmar act this way pre- WW2?

Apparently the so-called Satmar rebbe Joel Teitlebaum was quite the enterprenurial businessman in Rumania/Hungary pre-war.

You can see how sleazy and corrupt the entire Teitlebaum family was (including Joel's father abandoning his first wife by means of a "heter meah rabbanim" because she was barren. Teitlebaum's corrupt and evil nature was inherited from his corrupt family background. Just look at Wikipedia for a hint of the filth that went on in this "grand rabbi's" family. If your first wife doesn't produce, just throw 'er into the gutter.

Broadway Ali,

New York State and I think New Jersey are plagued with a lot of small government jurisdictions, which all cost money to administer. In upstate New York, many houses are taxed at 2-3% of market value, on top of high state income taxes. New Jersey has the reputation of having the highest residential property tax rates in the country (as a % of market value).

By the time the Satmars finish abusing the village of Bloomingburg, the residents who cannot claim a religious exemption will have very high property tax bills/rates. Even 12,000 is not a lot of people.

Broadway...from reading various articles, the Town Officials are involved in this take over....bought and paid for just like Ramapo. So ceding from the town will do no good. These people are doomed.

iddish-only ads (one is posted above) – an apparent violation of fair housing laws – for as low as $250,000 each.


fair housing laws...
wonder if bloc voting will make it so that doesn't apply to them.

The hopeless dupes who fall for this satmerer shtick deserve what they get,they will get tottal domination from the rebbe,like ants who serve a queen.

jancsibacsi, your comment is cruel and idiotic. We were duped by these a$$holes, thanks for the sympathy, jerk.
