Westgate residents opposed to change by township

The Township said it would enforce the parking on N. Crest  before changing it to a 1 way street. They say that Buses  will now go down N. Crest. Currently buses dont go on other streets in Westgate that are 1 way and hundreds of kids will still be walking to the main street. Why are a few well connected people getting their way.  This will inconvenience a lot of residents and put the safety of children and pedestrians at risk with cars flying down N. Crest if it becomes 1 way.  Traffic will now be diverted to the back parking lots creating a very dangerous situation.

They were approved."

Facing a 3.3 million dollar budget cut to the school district, That deal would strip

School is over for the Girls

The school year in Lakewood started back in September there was uncertainty with the busing at the time it took a while but eventually most schools had buses while others got used to carpooling. It was a mild winter and after a long school year the children and teachers can rest up and catch a well deserved break  Summer has begun and the girls schools in Lakewood have finished for the year. Some schools will have a half day today, playgroups too are over. Camp season begins next week Monday. The boys this year will continue for another month.  As for Next year the LSTA says most of the routes have been picked up.

Many Girls Still Not Accepted to High School As Camp Begins

School is over and the fun of camp begins but there are still many 8th grade girls who still have not been accepted into high school as of today. Among those still waiting are valedictorians straight A students and average students. No rhyme or reason that explains it.  When will this madness end?
Why do girls and their parents have to live with this worry throughout the summer?

Letter From Leading American Roshei Yeshiva Re: Giyus Bnei Yeshivos in Erretz Yisroel

 To: Maran Hagaon Hagadol Rav Aharon Yehudah Leib Shteinman shlita, Hagaon Hagadol Rav Moshe Hillel Hirsh shlita, Rosh Yeshivas Slobodka, Hagaon Hagadol Rav Dov Landau shlita, Rosh Yeshivas Slobodka, Hagaon Hagadol Rav Gershon Edelstein shlita, Rosh Yeshivas Ponovezh,  Hagaon Hagadol Rav Aviezer Piltz shlita, Rosh Yeshivas Tifrach, Hagaon Hagadol Rav Dovid Cohen shlita, Rosh Yeshivas Chevron, Hagaon Hagadol Rav Boruch Mordechai Ezrachi shlita, Rosh Yeshivas Ateres Yisroel, Hagaon Hagadol Rav Boruch Weissbaker shlita, Rosh Yeshivas Beis Matisyahu, Hagaon Hagadol Rav Moshe Barzovsky shlita, Rosh Yeshivas Slonim,

In representation of the Olam HaTorah here in the USA, we hereby address the Roshei Yeshivah and Torah leaders in Eretz Yisrael,
The bleak situation regarding the drafting of bnei yeshivah [into the IDF] has been brought to our attention by many roshei Yeshivah, specifically of the Sephardic community. Those who approached us supplied detailed explanations and examples regarding the enactment of new [harsh] laws, and the enforcement thereof. These [facts] have nothing to do with the sharp differences of opinion amongst the various chareidi factions in Eretz Yisrael. 
We will detail several points, in short.
