Peaceful Protest against Kapparos This Shabbos

Safety First?

וישמן ישורון
Erev Rosh Hashana Lakewood.
The infamous LED Digital Billboards in Lakewood went Live.  Given the fact of the many potential safety issues that the public raised, it's ironic and shocking that of all people and places Hatzolah would be the first to run an ad. Also the well connected assemblyman  advertised on it.  What kind of message are they sending the community? ?
Is life all about Money?
This will also put a financial burden on organizations to have to spend money for another platform. It was obviously done to kosher it that people will be scared to criticize but all this does is reinforce what everyone is screaming about.  Why would Hatzolah do something so stupid if their mission is to protect and save lives. Why jump in to something that many see as very dangerous both in Ruchniyus and Gashmiyus.

Important Message ahead of 3 Day Yom Tov


TBL: Remember When the Committee and Miller made this Promise?

TBL: At the 10/6/16 Township Committee meetingMayor Miller made the following announcement:

“As far as I’m concerned – my message out there – I’m done with all the density – I’m done with any additional rezoning – as far as I’m concerned under my watch as the mayor there is not going to be any rezoning from this committee – I defer to the master plan committee – but I think the sentiment out there is that we’re at capacity. We’re really at capacity and I kind of agree with you.”
A motion was unanimously passed instructing committeeman Akerman to send a letter to Justin Flancbaum instructing him as to how they would like the master plan be constructed. At the subsequent Township Committee Meeting

The Selichos Concerts

Many wonder, is nothing sacred anymore? Selichos,  for centuries klal yisrael approached it with fear and trepidation as the preparation for the yemei hadin, unfortunately it has now turned into full blown concerts and kumzits style events. The Piyut says זוחלים ורועדים we tremble and shiver as we beg Hashem to forgive us.  Instead we see live broadcasts and videos of these new selichos concerts each one crazier than the next. You wont see a clip of how selichos is said in a regular normal shul the way it always was.

 Some argue these concerts is the only way people feel they can connect and feel close to hashem as it says לשמוע אל הרינה ואל התפילה. It wasn't until the emergence of the Carlebach style selichos  that this phenomenon took off. In previous generations shuls had chazonim who would lead the service but it was not in the form of a musical happy concert. It was a soul stirring prayer in a serious atmosphere. Maybe this is what the generation needs otherwise people wont come to shul or get inspired but its definitely not the norm.

First Live Stream by Township Poor Sound Quality

Its always better when  the private industry does it, the live video stream hosted by Lakewood township could use improvement. It was not the same quality that a private citizen provided when recording the township meetings.The sound quality was very poor it was hard to hear the committee members talking. The video quality is ok for now. There is no direct link on the township website to see the archived video unless you click on the original link HERE. As of now it is also not available on Youtube not everyone has time to watch it live it should be easily view-able afterwards.

The Mayor acknowledged that they will review the video feed and tweak what needs to be fixed.

LSTA: Lakewood Traffic Delays Causing Longer bus Routes

It seems parents are not that happy.
Email sent out to schools.
Submitted.
I wanted to inform all of the schools that I spent the last two days trailing two primary routes (2:45 pm & 3:00 pm) to see what the difficulties our vendors are dealing with in connecting to the 4:00 pm routes.
In both cases, Bnos esther Malka and Bnos Devorah, the students were let out on time and the bus left on time.

We were delayed at the following intersections;

 Turning left from Chestnut to  New Hampshire for 8 minutes,

 Pine and MLK for 25 minutes,

Turning left from New Hampshire to Ridge for 8 minutes,
