Did NU-BEST place this article in here?

Charity aside, none of this is very endearing. Bat Mitzvah culture and celebrity culture are truly one, now? Nothing for anybody to be proud of here.

Yes, having a Bat Mitzvah at Oheka will teach everyone about those who have less and those who need. The moron could give the money to charity instead of Oheka, and really teach his daughter something. Ahhh...no wonder this religion is dying.

The former lawyer, Spencer Lader, who pleaded guilty to grand larceny charges in Brooklyn in 1983, said he had cooperated with other lawyers in illegal and questionable practices to ''manufacture'' cases and to obtain larger settlements or awards in authentic suits.

A former lawyer testified before a State Senate Committee that he participated in the bribery of several judges and in other irregularities to win medical malpractice and negligence cases in New York City courts from 1979 to 1982.

Kudos for the parents to have encouraged Rachel to give her Bat Mitvah gifts away...very nice!!!My nephew had his Bar Mitvah last year, he has not seen a dime of it...unfortunately, his parents are not as well off as Rachels', to give to charity, his gifts and money are in a trust for his college....he MIGHT get a USED NISSAN SENTRA out of his money when he turns 17.

Bat Mitvahs are reformed Jews way of showing off with a huge party.. Orthodox do not regard Bat Mitzvahs. These are sleezy showoff Jews throwing a big showy party. Nothing religious about it at all.

An attempt to get the above info removed as being "outdated". Censorship? See below:

I need to know the various proccesses for this article t be removed from the Google Search engine as typed "Spencer Lader " , it is outdated , news of 1985 .

"News" doesnt become "outdated." If the story is true, the story is true.

What do these non-Jewish luminaries have to do with a religious event? It's one-up-manship among wealthy non religious jews making these bat mitvahs into an incredible show of wealth. Famous Rock bands, famous athletes, blah blah blah. Even wrapped in gold, feces is still feces.

Wow, that kid must really have it tough. Having to drive a USED car at the age of 17?!? Man, the government should give him reparations for the pain and suffering he's had to endure!

I mean, he could always GET A JOB and work for it like EVERYONE ELSE HAS TO, but when you are told that you're better than everyone else from the moment you're born, I guess that's just not an option.

The sense of entitlement you people have just gets bigger and bigger...

While we are on the subject entitlement, YOU people think you are the only one's going to heaven. Everybody else, or at least those who don't believe in your Jesus scam are going to hell. Now you tell me, who has an overblown sense of entitlement.
