What does out of town mean to you?

| |

I never started hearing the term “out of town” until I started going to yeshiva, people referred to my yeshiva as out of town and I always wondered if they realized that we were in the middle of a metropolitan area with 800,000 people or so, it didn’t seem too out of town to be going to yeshiva in the same town as Kodak and Xerox were headquartered in did it. Then later in life I learned that out of town basically meant anywhere outside of “frum NY” I wasn’t yet to learn that out of town had a much deeper meaning than random geographical boundaries, that it actually meant a look, attitude, hashkafa and so on.

Frum dating sites typically ask you what your hashkafa means to you, reading “what modern orthodox machmir means to you” from dozens of profiles will quickly help you understand why no label is good enough for a large group of people.
