                                                                            מנהג שבת שירה
הכרת טובה יש נוהגים שבשבת שירה, מפזרים בחוץ משירי מאכלי שבת, שיאכלום עופות הבית וציפורי הדרור שבחוץ. והטעם: כיוון שקוראים בשבת זו בפרשת בשלח שיש בה סיפור על המן שירד לישראל במדבר ושנאמר בו: "אכלוהו היום כי שבת היום לה', היום לא תמצאהו בשדה... ויהי ביום השביעי יצאו מן העם ללקוט, ולא מצאו." (שמות ט"ז)
אמרו רבותינו ז"ל, שאותם אנשים שיצאו ללקוט ביום השביעי רשעים היו, ידעו שהמן לא ירד בשבת כדבר משה, מה עשו? הלכו בלילה ופזרו בשדה מן המן שהיה להם על מנת לאסוף אותו בבוקר ולהביאו למחנה לעיני כל העם, כדי שיאמרו שמשה בודה מצוות מליבו. ואז הם יצאו בבוקר ללקוט מן ולא מצאו. ומה קרה עם המן שהניחו בלילה? הגיעו הציפורים ולקחו אותו כדי שיאמנו דברי משה ושהשבת תהיה מקודשת אצל כל העם. משום כך

NJ Forecasters tracking Weekend Storm

The weekend storm will have to trend south in order to have a significant snow fall. first bout of wintry weather remains on track to hit New Jersey Thursday night creating the potential for a messy Friday morning commute, but the latest forecast updates from the National Weather Service show the state could be spared a major snowstorm over the weekend with temperatures expected to remain above freezing

New Jersey isn't out of the woods yet for weekend weather. The National Weather Service is still calling it a "significant winter storm" expected to arrive Saturday night and a deep plunge in temperatures on Sunday at the tail edge of the storm could cause flash freezing. There's also still a chance that a blast of arctic air could move in earlier to deliver a wintry mix, the weather service says. With the system still a few days out, forecasters say the track and timing are unclear.

Yud Shevat Farbrengen Lakewood

“No one could have predicted the type of growth that Lakewood experienced.”

 "Mr. Akerman, who voted against the Master Plan and opposed the new zoning laws, conceded that the Township may have been able to do more, but noted that “no one could have predicted the type of growth that Lakewood experienced.”

Hamodia- LAKEWOOD - Rising traffic congestion is part and parcel of large and growing cities across the world. Peak-hour traffic congestion is an inherent result of the way modern societies operate, with most working people keeping similar office hours, creating the inevitable overload of existing roads and transit systems at the same time every day. Lakewood, New Jersey’s fastest growing town (city?), is no different.

While Lakewood may have its unique peak periods, with the worst traffic occurring before and after “seder” times at Beth Medrash Govoha, the fact is that Lakewood’s infrastructure struggles to keep up with a population that is growing exponentially in a way few could have predicted. And although there have been countless studies, working groups and state-level meetings conducted over the years, it seems as if the traffic is only getting worse.

In a conversation with Hamodia, Lakewood Township Committeeman Isaac Akerman says that 10 years ago, the town’s growth and how that would translate into the current traffic woes was not so high up on the list of problems.

כי סגולה מיוחדת לפרנסה לומר את פרשת המן, שניים מקרא ואחד תרגום, ביום שלישי בשבוע שקוראים בו פרשת בשלח

סגולה לפרנסה לומר בכל יום את פרשת המן. עניין זה מוזכר כבר ב'ארבעה טורים' (אורח חיים סי' שא - 'טוב לומר פרשת המן'), ומרן הבית יוסף ביאר "כדי שיאמין שכל מזונותיו באין לו בהשגחה", וב'פרישה': "בירושלמי דברכות איתא, כל האומר פרשת המן בכל יום, מובטח לו שלא יתמעטו מזונותיו". לגבי אמירת פרשת המן בשבת, פסק רבינו בעל ה'באר היטב': (סימן א' סעיף קטן ט') "וגם בשבת יוכל לומר פרשת המן". היו שנהגו להוסיף תפילות ובקשות על פרנסה לאחר אמירת פרשת המן, אולם בשבת אין לומר את התפילות. וכן ידוע ומפורסם בין החסידים בשם הרה"ק רבי מנחם מנדל מרימינוב זצוק"ל זיע"א כי סגולה מיוחדת לומר את פרשת המן (שניים מקרא ואחד תרגום) ביום שלישי בשבוע שקוראים בו את פרשת בשלח
