Looking for a few good Jews



Dothan, Alabama wants you if you are Jewish and they are willing to pay. If you move there, become active in the synagogue and live there for five years you do not have to pay back the $50,000 they will give you for just moving there in the first place. That is right, get paid $50,000 to move to podunk Alabama and all you have to do is stay there for five years you do not have to pay it back.

Pros: It is $50,000 just for moving there
Con: It is living in podunk Alabama in the middle of the Bible Belt.

Pro: Small town life could be good.
Con: It is living in podunk Alabama in the middle of the Bible Belt.

Pro: It is only 80 miles from the Florida beaches.
Con: It is podunk Alabama in the middle of the Bible Belt.

Pro: There is no snow.
Con: It is hot as hell in the summer and it is podunk Alabama in the middle of the Bible Belt.

Pro: No traffic jams.
Con: Probably no jobs either and it is podunk Alabama in the middle of the Bible Belt.

Overall, I guess if you were willing to live in the middle of nowhere Alabama in the middle of the Bible belt, it would not be so bad to get paid to do so. I am not sure it is for everyone, but if you are Jewish and need money and want to live in the Bible Belt, this is the way to go.

I am so going to talk MathMan into this!!!! Yes!!!!! It's the answer to so many of our problems. I mean we already live in the middle of nowhere in a podunk town in the Bible Belt!

Problems solved:

(1) Money.
(2) Lack of Jewish community/education for the kids
(3) Distance from beaches

I see this as a win/win. MathMan is not amused.

Thanks, Boxer! Have GG give you a kiss for me.

It's not the worst part of Alabama and as you mention it is by the coast, but it's hardly a thriving metropolis

I used to work with a girl from Dothan, which is why I know.

Will I qualify for the money if I convert? I'm already circumcised.
