  1. Was any mention made of rising prices? Pricing pple out of Lakewood??? These are key questions probably never mentioned. Sucking people for more $$$ than ever imagined is מותר in this town. Just line everyone’s pockets and you’re good to go. Probably discussed how you could get away with things customers were promised.

  2. I think it’s a nice thing to see many competitors in the same industry coming together for a joint shiur. To see them unite for Torah.

  3. Thank you to Mike from Method Construction NJ for representing us! We hope to make it to the next fabulous shuir!

    Your NYC co-workers!

  4. Might want to discuss , the issue of building one window across another where you can see into someone’s elses house. This is according to many opinions a issur deoraysa. And not subject to mechilla. So even if both homeowners agree it’s still not allowed

  5. So much to discuss with this industry…. ask any local Choshen Mishapat Rov it’s mind blowing what has become the norm in this industry.
    sad state of affairs.
