One of the main goals we have here at Frum From Bathurst is to provide a medium for people to express themselves and publicize their thoughts and emotions regarding the Jewish community. As much as our regular contributors feel they know a whole lot about the community, we obviously don’t know everything (or everyone), and it’s always good to hear from multiple opinions

We welcome contributors from all backgrounds. If you have a voice, an opinion, a story, an experience or you just want to rant, we’re here for you. We would be delighted if you could share your expressions with us.

Our policy is that each prospective contributor will choose a ghost name which will appear above their post while your real identity will be kept private from the public. Therefore, the only person knowing your real identity will be the site’s administrator – and since he pretty much has everything to lose by revealing your name, you can absolutely trust him.

We do this not because we don’t want to tarnish the reputation of an individual in a community that talks way too much about the public and personal lives of people… but rather because, well… you know how people are…

But if you don’t mind using your real name, then we won’t mind as well.

All prospective posts should be sent to
You can also send us a private message on Facebook through our fan page – Frum From Bathurst 

We’ll do our best to respond and stay in touch with you as quick as possible regarding the status of your post.

  1. As many people know or who have felt the effects of the recession, funds can dry up. In my case, totally.

    It was around ______ when I received a phone call from someone at ____, saying ‘we noticed you were here last year for Yom Tovim’ . Really I said. ‘Yes’ he said. I thought, Interesting. I was noticed.

    Did I make noise or distrupt the davening I asked. The answer was ‘I am calling you about renewing your membership’. No answer to my question though.

    I said I am flat broke. I cannot afford anything as it stands. But I want to come to shul for Yom Tov Davening. He said. ‘you should have appealed to the commitee’ I answered ‘I don’t beg and won’t beg to daven to the ALMIGHTY.

    As it turns out, a friend of mine who knew my situation called the _____________. Not once, but 3 times. In vain, as the call was never returned to him. At the time I did not know about my friend calling _______ in regards to me. Not in any way, shape or form.

    My friend who made the calls to________ helps kids at Bar Mitzvah time in Eretz Yisroel who may have lost a parent and cannot afford Tefillin. He makes a huge Bar Mitzvah in Yerushalyim every year for these kids. And this so-called _______ could not find the time to return HIS call?

    This _____ is no _________ (may his name be blessed).

    HaGaon, HaMaran, Ha ______ would have returned the first phone call. But then one must realize ______ IS A TRUE RABBI in EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD.

    In saying this I want to make it clear that I was not looking or trying to aquire ‘free’ tickets for my wife and myself. I had every intention of renewing my membership. But it so BUGS be that the statement ‘we noticed you last year’. I AM A FOUNDING member. So it appears to me, no money -> no GOD. GOD likes cash but will take checks (cheques in the canadian regime) and common credit cards (Visa, Mastercard).

    I happen to be at Sobeys located at Clark and Hilda in Thornhill and saw ________ from the ______ shul. I have supported them before in a small way. ____ said ‘so where are you davening for Rosh HaShanna and Yom Kippur?’ I replied, in my dining room why? _____ replied ‘WHAT?” ____ went to say, why are you NOT davening at ____ where you belong. I said ‘its money Itchy. I am flat broke, I have successfully lost everything. _____ ‘noticed’ me (halleluyah) last year but since money is not around, the notice has disolved.

    _________ immediatly told me to come to _______ to daven Rosh HaShanna and Yom Kippur. How nice was that! Even though I am in financial gehinom, ____ and ______ to the rescue. Actually, one time HaGaon, Maran, _____ told me _______ of the _______ is a good man. This came up because of a funeral.

    Well for the first fime since 1986 I went to the _____ schul at _____. And whom did I sit with? People who were in the same prediciment as I currently find myself in. People denied access to _____ for Rosh HaShanna and Yom Kippur Davening because of financial problems.

    This all make me think, what did these people learn from Adolph Hitler and company? Did Adolph and his buddies not get anything into thier money sick heads? Perhaps in their sick minds we (the JEWISH PEOPLE) that are financially downtrodden are still JEWS wanting to DAVEN to HaShem for forgivness and our love for the Almighty? In the case of ____ it’s No Money, We DON’t WANT YOU.

    Although I have a very close friend at _____, I shall not pass through the doors of _____. The _____ campain (pure evil) has won. This new ‘_____’ the ‘spiratual leader’ is a joke of the sickest kind. And let me make this very clear, no one, including ha Gaon, ha Maran, _____ asked me to write this.

    I am not a ‘_____’ and I won’t daven there either only because it was _____ that brought me from the other side to the side that worships HaShem. I am a _____. That is, a follower of Maran, HaGaon _____.

    Don’t get me wrong about _____. They are good people and care about fellow Jews. It’s just that being a ‘member’ of _____s since 1986 has its effects as I am sure you understand.

    After reading the book which I purchased in Munchen (Munich) entitled ‘The Pity of it All’ (I strongly encourage this book to be read), I see how some of Jews gave the ‘finger’ to GOD. I see how the events led to what happened. It’s being repeated at a different level.

    Artscroll: change ‘Adon-y’ to Kesef’ Baruch ata Kesef… my rock and my redeemer.
    Cleanse the evil HaShem.
