מידת סדום

In Sedom they fought against הכנסת אורחים the same thing happened last night at the township committee meeting. A family wanted to build a Hachnosas Orchim house for the westgate community in memory of a member who died tragically. They worked hard to find a property and a suitable place for the guest house. After much negotiating and planning they found a piece of property that belonged to the township which was to be put up as a public auction dedicated for non profit. This property sat empty for 20 years and no one even looked at it. All of a sudden some people got wind of this and decided to oppose it. They yelled why wont the township give it up for open space or a park it should go back to the westgate community they claimed. Than came the frummeh cheshbon "we need the property for a shul" there is no room in westgate for shuls they are all packed.
Its ironic that the very same people who are so concerned with lack of space for a shul were silent all along when other kehillos asked to build and expand their shuls. Even worse some of the people who cant have a guest house and want a shul were the verysame ones that fought against the other shuls in WG. 

Surprisingly the committeemen all of a sudden claim to not know what goes on in westgate and want to hear from the thousands of residents but they just passed a one way street sign without asking the majority of residents.

This property sat empty and not once did anyone even ask about it but now that someone else is asking for it they are fighting it abi nisht yenem.
Chazal say האומר שלי שלי ושלך שלך, זו מדה בינונית. ויש אומרים, זו מדת סדום
The Bartenura says
  קרוב הדבר לבוא לידי מדת סדום. שמתוך שהוא רגיל בכך, אפילו בדבר שחבירו נהנה. והוא אינו חסר לא ירצה להנות את חבירו, וזו היתה מדת סדום שהיו מתכוונים לכלות הרגל מביניהם, ואע"פ שהיתה הארץ רחבת ידים לפניהם ולא היו חסרים כלום

NJ Attorney General Questions 600k Deal for Lakewood BOE attorney

New Jersey Attorney General's Office officials said the Lakewood school board's  contract with its lawyer may violate state education regulations. Following the signed contract a group asked the AG office to look into the matter. In a letter (see below) the AG office writes "Our initial review of the documents provided suggests that this contract may not be consistent with Department of Education regulations." 
Lakewood schools superintendent told the  APP that "Inzelbuch has already made improvements in the district, including providing a workshop for child study teams, small groups of social workers and psychologists who identify an individual student's needs."

Will the Lakewood Vaad make a Gubernatorial Endorsement?

Elections are 3 weeks away and this year NJ is one of two states where citizens will vote for a Governor. Democrat nominee Phil Murphy recently visited Lakewood and met with Vaad officials and some other special interests the general public was not invited. A new poll finds likely voters favor Democrat Phil Murphy over Republican Kim Guadagno to replace Gov. Chris Christie. The Vaad endorsed Guadango in the Republican primary back in May, but as it seems they may back Murphy in the general or make no endorsement at all. 

Murphy most likely will not get the general Lakewood vote even with a Vaad endorsement due to his liberal left policies and his plan to rise taxes by $1.3 Billion. Lakewood generally votes republican and on a state and national level the vaad's endorsement is of no significance and even locally the Vaad's power has weakened.

In the Presidential elections Over 75% of the Lakewood vote went  for Trump making it the Trumpiest town in NJ. The Vaad endorsed Corzine over Chrstie in the first term, but Lakewood voted overwhelmingly for Christie.
The Vaad may pull a Route 9 surprise like they did with Corzine promising $100 million dollars to "widen the Nine" if he wins, but this time even that would be a hard sell.

The Winter session has begun but for three high school girls in Lakewood they are still at home without a school for them.  Parents were hopeful something would work itself out over sukkos but there has been no movement.  Hopefully this can be taken care of swiftly and the girls can start the school year right away.

Lakewood car fires caused by Cigarette

Patch-LAKEWOOD, NJ - Four vehicles parked behind the Northern Resource Center on Fourth Street were destroyed by fire in the early morning hours on Oct. 14, a spokesman for the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office said.

The fire apparently began with a cigarette in a privately-owned vehicle, said Al Della Fave. Investigation revealed that a woman had been smoking in the vehicle, put the cigarette in the ash tray, then fell asleep, he said.

"She awoke to find smoke and a small fire in the area of the ash tray in the vehicle," Della Fave said. "She attempted to put the fire out, but was unable to. At this time she notified the Lakewood Police Department."

Other vehicles damaged included two Meals on Wheels vehicles and one owned by Gelbstein's Bakery, he said.

This is Route 70 in Lakewood, NJ, which we live just off of.  It is a pretty busy highway.  Someone got killed 2 miles down from here on Tuesday.  Today we saw this while we were sitting in front of our house after grocery shopping.  They were lifting the strollers over the median and vehicles were zooming past and blaring their horns! Ten minutes earlier and one of those zooming cars would have been mine.

Erev sukkos, a busy day for men

(Submitted via comment)
Talk about Erev Pesach the pressure of getting ready for the Seder, making sure there is no chometz, turning over the kitchen, cooking the zeroa, making charoses etc. Men usually have easy chores when it comes to Erev Pesach its the Nashim tzidkaniyos that are the ones knocked out when we sit by the seder.
Its on Erev Sukkos that the men get to feel a bit what it is for the women on Erev Pesach. Talk about the stress of getting the sukkah up, making sure its sturdy, adding 2 new panels, last minute runs to the local hardware store- a screw and bolt here, a light fixture, oops need to run back for an adapter since its 3 prongs, Setting the shabbos clock, putting up the decorations. Then its back to the store for another 6x4 mat for the schach and a fold-able cot for the son in law who sleeps in the sukkah.
