The Beth Joshua Program for families looking to relocate near Melvin J. Berman Hebrew Academy and Beth Joshua in Rockville, Maryland
The Beth Joshua program is run by me alone. It is entirely subjective. I am looking for families to locate near MJBHA and Beth Joshua. I am willing to make a $20,000 loan which hopefully will be forgiven in the future. The loan will be made to couples (hopefully with one or more children. If no children, there must be expectations that eventually, G-d willing, there will be children). The couple must be orthodox, shomer Shabbat of a hashgafa that is reasonably in line with MJBHA. Both parents must be Jewish, and it must be two parents (husband and wife). The man must expect to be at almost all Shabbat and Chag minyanim when in town, and to be in town most Shabbossim. The couple must expect to send their children to MJBHA through at least eighth grade unless there is a very compelling reason otherwise.
The loan will be forgiven when all the following have occurred:
(1) The couple has lived in the community ten years.
(2) The couple has children who in the aggregate have attended MJBHA for twenty school years.
The above is specific, but to qualify, I must talk to at least one of the husband or wife, and I have always been able to let someone know after one conversation. This is not a guarantee, but an expectation.
I am presently in Israel. It would be best if one of them contacted me first by E-mail. Feel free to share the above information.

We were fortunate to have found Adam Bashein as our real estate agent. I was very picky with who we would select as I had bought before and had some bad experiences with agents who wouldn't listen to what the customer needed and treated me like just another commission. When we went with Adam I was fairly confident that he wouldn't treat me or my wife as just another customer but would really invest himself in making sure we were in the home that worked for us. Our expectactations were far exceded by the performance of someone who is simply at the top of his field. Adam worked with us when we wanted one house and he worked with us when we wanted a completely different house. When we finally decided on a third offer, Adam worked with us with the same passion and investment as he had the previous offers. That dedication made us feel that we had someone who cared about the house that worked for us and was willing to actually listen in order to make sure we were all on the same page. When it came to his real estate knowledge he was judicious - there was nothing in the real estate process that I felt he didn't know. If he even slightly doubted something he told us, he would check with a superior to make sure his facts were straight. When it came to negotiations, Adam was a genius. Adam aggresively pursued a great price for us and worked until the day of closing to make sure we were maximizing everything we could get from the bargaining table. That's the point, Adam doesn't stop. He's your real estate agent for life because he is on top of things constantly - whether it is listening to you, reading up on the latest market trends or negotiating for his client he is always working for you. We wholeheartedly recommend Adam Bashein.
I'm anywhere you want to be in Metro DC.

The best has yet to come.
The spring market is now. The weather is getting better, rates are still good, around 5% and lots of buyers have been to open houses. Whether you or someone you know are thinking of selling and/or buying a home, let's talk about the market. I'm anywhere you want to be in Maryland and Washington, DC.
With much appreciation,
