Are Tax Dollars paying for Religious text Books

So this is a problem?
 A report today in the APP claims that Tax dollars are paying for text books to private schools that are of religious teaching. Books for religious teaching are not supposed to be purchased with state grant money, but the press investigation found one of the private school texts that was purchased, titled "Fundamentals of Life Science," promotes a "greater appreciation of the greatness of Hashem and His magnificent creations,".
Calvary Academy's Lakewood only private christian school also purchased books with religious teachings. Lakewood BOE attorney said the books were denied by the school district this year but it was the state DOE who approved it. In a video posted the board attorney flips through a alef bais book  with Hebrew letters pointing out there is no religious teaching in it.

Mahwah Settles Discrimination Lawsuit

“We commend Attorney General Grewal for standing up for religious freedom, and congratulate them on their settlement,” said Buchweitz. “The people of the Bergen Rockland Eruv Association have been enjoying religious freedom for over a year now in part because of the great efforts of people like the New Jersey Attorney General.”

Hamodia - Mahwah Township, New Jersey, reached a settlement agreement with the state resolving a lawsuit related to two ordinances that were alleged to be motivated by anti-Semitism, New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal announced Monday. One of the ordinances had banned non-residents from using Mahwah’s public parks, and the other banned the posting of eruv lechis – plastic strips on utility poles, within the municipality.

I Harold (hershel) Herskowitz have no connection to this website or its content.

Once again today I received a call from someone asking me if i can remove something from my website. The website people are referring to is usually Hefkervelt. I usually dont care when I get such a call. I explain to the person that I not only have no control over Hefkervelt, I dont even know who runs it. I like anyone else submit my articles or requests in the comment box on a random post. If it is something I want posted or announced I respectfully ask the website owner to do it. I am very often edited and censored in what I write. I appreciate the owner for allowing me to tell his readers things I feel are important. He even allows me to announce special sales in my store. I appreciate that he has a website that is not under the control of people trying to hurt our town. I do not agree with much of his politics, but I respect his opinion.
Now to get to the point. Today I received a request from a very respected member of our community

Erev Yom Kippur 15 Girls still Not in School

It's Erev Yom Kippur 5779  in Lakewood and there are still girls out of school.
15 elementary girls waiting and a few girls still out of high school. Parents and children are heading into sukkos not knowing what will be. Some of those who were supposed to work on placement and deal with the issue went away for the yomim tovim and there  is no movement.
Hoping this gets taken care of before kol Nidrei. A Gmar Chasima Tova to all.

Vaad Machanecha Kadosh formed in Lakewood to Increase Kedusha

A New VAAD has formed in Lakewood to increase Kedusha and awareness in areas of Advertising, store front images, and setting up proper mechitzas at simcha halls. The vaaad is replicating a similar movement that began in Toronto and Belgium. Members of the vaad will approach local businesses that display storefront images advertising that are not in keeping with the spirit of the Torah. Its about educating the public and bringing awareness to store owners. Of the  items that need chizuk and the Vaad plans to work on are, Dress codes for  workers and employees where they are needed,  ensure proper mechitzos at simcha halls, posters and advertisements with inappropriate pictures. The Vaad is guided by Rabbonim and Roshei Yeshiva of Lakewood. A article in TVOL a member says the Vaad is not here to address personal tznius standards, shaitels, internet usage, smartphones within the frum community. The vaad is here to improve community standards regarding public less known concerns. send suggestions to mkadosh@gmail.com

Tzedaka Priorities

                                    ותשובה ותפילה וצדקה מעבירין את רוע הגזירה
          To Whom Do We Give Tzedakah and Who Comes Before Whom?

Aseres Yemei Teshhuva between  Rosh hashana and yom kippur when many tzedaka requests are made by  Mosdos, Yeshivos individuals and organizations asking for donations as klal yisrael is in a giving mode of tzedaka during this time. we are bombarded by Tzedaka letters in the mail, robo calls, telemarketers soliciting donations, emails, a meshulach knocking at your door or approaching you in shul. Some have family obligations to support a relative.    

If one can afford to give to all that would be wonderful, however not everyone is capable of that.  The question is is whom do I have to give

According to Halacha there are priorities in who to give tzedaka to first. Please discuss this with your Local Rabbi as there are differences of opinions. 
Some Poskim rule that Hachzokas hatorah is the highest form of giving tzedaka.  categories in giving based on the shulchan aruch Yore Deah: The Laws of Tzedakah siman 251

Category 1: Captives, prisoners and matters of life and death- pikuach nefesh
Category 2: Very close relatives

Royal Prince comes to Lakewood
 Malchus!
Prince Edward, youngest of Queen Elizabeth II's children, and tenth in line to the throne will be in Lakewood today. He is scheduled to play a centuries-old form of tennis Thursday at Georgian Court University. The sport is played in an enclosed court with cork-based balls that are heavier and less bouncy than modern lawn tennis balls. Rackets are shorter than lawn tennis rackets and the rules of the game are more complex than the modern version. The prince is participating in a nine-day tour of the United States court tennis courts as part of an effort to raise support for his father Prince Philip's International Award program. The court Tennis court at GCU is the second to oldest in the USA built in 1899. APP


Judy Franco: No Media coverage on Newark welfare fraud
NJ 101.5 - A Newark family that managed a local convenience store is accused of taking thousands of unearned dollars through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) by exchanging $5 million in benefits for cash.
"I’m pretty sure this story wont be covered with as much unabashed glee as it would be if there were Lakewood Jews involved, so I thought it was important to let you know"... many, many, many people from all walks of life from all races, religions, and ethnic groups steal from the welfare system every single day. I thought I’d let you know. If it weren’t so easy to defraud welfare, no one would.

Why I’m Taking Control of My Family’s Health Care by Joining a Health Share

 by Victoria Dwek posted at Betweencarpools.com

Now, there’s finally an answer for the health insurance frustration we all endure. United Refuah HealthShare is the exciting alternative for Jewish families
 In my house, like in any other, there are certain things my husband takes care of, and certain things I take care of. The bills, thank G-d, are in his court. Towards the end of each year, though, when it comes time to decide whether we’ll be staying on our current insurance plan or switching to a new one, it’s up to me to do the research, analyze the fine print, and decide which plan makes the most sense for us. Once I finish my research, I present the information to my husband, who gives me his go ahead to sign us up, trusting that I know our family’s health care needs and can determine what gives us the best value and cost efficiency.
