Video: A Chabad shliach learned Tanya in Lakewood

When the Rebbe sent Rabbi Nissan Mangel to Lakewood, New Jersey to spread the teachings of Chassidus, he didn’t fully know what to expect. After spending a full week around the Yeshiva and assuming his job was more or less complete without incident, he was in for a most moving surprise. Upon his return to Crown Heights, he was greeted with a welcome from the Rebbe and a cryptic, yet touching, acknowledgement of his work.

The Rebbetzin

By Rabbi Pinchos Lipschutz
Were someone to ask me what Sarah Imeinu looked like, I’d say, “Look at Rebbetzin Sarah Schustal and you’ll know.”
Were someone to ask me what a bas Yisroel should look like, I’d say, “Like Rebbetzin Schustal.”
What is tznius? What is tzidkus? How should we act? How should we speak? How should we live our lives? How should we raise our children?
I’d say, “Look at Rebbetzin Schustal and you’ll know.”

A holy woman walked among us. We had an image of what was demanded of us.

Always thoughtful and caring, loving and smart, calm and careful, she was the perfect combination.

submitted as comment.(For list of Chinese auction winners click HERE)

Thank you so much for the tributes to Rebbetzin Kotler a'h and Mrs. Shami Reinman a'h. Rebbetzin Kotler really was the mother of this community and a staunch supporter of the beginning Lakewood Bikur Cholim - Everybody called her for advice, if your kid needed stitches, if you were upset because of town problems, if you just needed help adjusting to Lakewood Life - and Mrs. Shami Reinman who was talented in so many ways, and all her talents were overshadowed by her good heart and her commitment to always see the good in everybody, was always ready to help anybody and really dedicated a lot to many Lakewood organizations, including Bikur Cholim. We miss you so much and may you be meilitzei yosher for all of us.

A nice review from the guru

After seeing so many posts about South Side Sandwich Shop & Smokehouse and following Joseph S. Mutterperl on this group I finally had the privilege of going down to Lakewood, NJ and checking it out. First off I must say, he is an extremely nice guy, a real mentch and was so nice to talk to about food and smoking meat. We had so much food and tried so many things. Everything was very good. I really enjoyed the long bone smoked rib the most, the second cut smoked brisket was melt in your mouth delicious and his fried chicken was delicious. Kosherguru.

Shabbos sheva brachos challenge

The chasunah was somehow taken care of and paid for. Great strides were made over the years to bring down wedding costs. Halls have takana packages for flowers and music bands there are cheaper affordable options.  Gemachs for Wedding gowns are plentiful (if your lucky to reserve for the wedding date). The challenge today is the Shabbos 7 brachos. Both financially and logistical.  With growing mishachos ka"h the costs go up this is not factoring in extended family but immediate families from both the choson and Kallah sides. Putting up 100 people is no easy task. Those who can afford it go to a hotel with catered meals. For the less fortunate there is no cheap hotel option. A local hall in a shul or school is usually where it is done. Food is either catered or the siblings split the chores amongst

Christie: No Syrian refugees, not even 'orphans under age 5'

Gov. Chris Christie on Monday said the United States should not admit any refugees from the Syrian civil war — not even "orphans under age 5."

"I do not trust this administration to effectively vet the people who are supposed to be coming in in order to protect the safety and security of the American people, so I would not permit them in," the Republican presidential candidate said on conservative talk show host Hugh Hewitt's syndicated radio show. 

Christie's comments came after French authorities disclosed that one of the attackers who killed 129 people and seriously wounded another 80 in Paris on Friday evening had entered Europe through Greece on a forged Syrian passport last month, posing as a migrant.

Howell mayor scolds residents over anti-Semitism

Thank you to Howell mayor William Gotto for saying it like it is regarding the opposition on social media to the Chofetz Chaim Yeshiva housing project.
Mayor Gotto
 APP-Howell Mayor William Gotto has publicly expressed his "disgust" for the anti-Semitic and classist comments that have been made on some of Howell’s Facebook pages over the past month.

An open letter to the community from Gotto and the Township Council posted on Howell’s website on Tuesday morning — as a followup to the remarks he made at Monday's Township Council meeting — expressed concerns about social media perpetuating “misinformation and half-truths” about the issues and projects going on in town. Town officials trying to give correct information, in many cases, have been blocked from posting on those pages, Gotto said.
Social media activity on two Facebook groups, Howell Happenings NJ and West Farms R9 Housing Project, has intensified since a controversial affordable housing project became the hot issue in town. Citizens have been using Facebook to share information, voice opposition and mobilize to try and stop the development. But included in some of those discussions have been harsh comments about low-income families and people who practice Orthodox Judaism.
“What I don’t get is, as a community, the level of discourse that’s arisen is a very short period of time with some of the absolutely disgusting, anti-Semitic, racial, class-separating comments that I’ve seen by so many residents in this town, predominately on social media,” Gotto said at the council meeting.

Not even a thank you!

Its two weeks after the elections the vaad could not even take out an ad thanking everyone for coming out and voting for their candidates. Not even a phone call, where is the hakoras hatov? People shlepped to the polls took time out of their day are they not worth a thank you? What about the politicians did they thank the people for electing them again? To get the vote they know what to do, how about thanking all those who keep them in power.

No credible threat, but NJ on alert after Paris attacks

Gov. Chris Christie said Saturday night that the United States needs strong leadership, especially after Friday's deadly attacks in Paris. APP

Christie, who is running for president, spoke Saturday at the Republican Party’s Sunshine Summit in Orlando, Florida, where he delivered a 20-minute speech that opened with his reflections on Sept. 11, 2001, and his time as U.S. attorney.

Christie said he initially planned talk about the economy and deliver some jokes but the Paris attacks that killed at least 129 people changed his mind. The governor said he sees the world as it really is but that President Barack Obama sees it as a “fantasy.” He also said his experience best qualifies him to be president.

New Jersey State Police said Saturday "there is no credible threat to New Jersey'' in wake of Friday's terror attacks in Paris that left at least 127 people dead, although Port Authority of New York and New Jersey police are operating under heightened alert.

Rain not enough to ease NJ drought worries

Drenching downpours in early October and scattered showers during the past week were not enough to ease the drought worries that have plagued New Jersey this year.

That's what the latest maps, released Thursday by the U.S. Drought Monitor, are showing.

This drought map, released Thursday, Nov. 12, shows 36 percent of the Garden State (yellow) continues to be abnormally dry and nearly 18 percent of the state (orange-cream color) has moderate drought conditions.

While both stores are more evenly matched in Monmouth County – QuickChek has 15 locations, and Wawa has 18 – there is a greater divide in Ocean County. There, Wawa has over 25 locations whereas QuickChek has only six.

N.J. towns may push hospitals to pay up

Cash-strapped local governments around the state may be looking at non-profit hospitals with new eyes, now that the non-profit Morristown Medical Center has agreed to pay its hometown $15.5 million over the next decade to settle demands for property taxes. State Senate President Stephen Sweeney and Sen. Robert Singer, a Lakewood Republican, said this year that they would seek legislative action after Election Day. They will need to balance a range of competing interests: the need for additional government revenue and help for heavily taxed voters as well as the potential effect on employment and services at essential, and sometimes struggling, institutions.

3 reported cases of whooping cough

APP LAKEWOOD – Ocean County had three reported cases of whooping cough last week centered in Lakewood's Orthodox Jewish community, according to local health officials.

Whooping cough, or pertussis, is a highly contagious bacterial respiratory infection that causes violent coughing fits and a characteristic "whooping" sound as sick  people struggle to breathe, according to the Centers for Disease Control. The infection can be deadly in infants.

In response to the recent cases, the Ocean County Health Department is urging adults who have contact with babies and small children to receive a Tdap vaccination.

Feeling SAD or depressed at 5 pm?

On a dreary day like today your not alone. Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is pretty easy to understand. As seasons shift, so does the amount of sunlight, which affects your circadian rhythm, the body’s internal clock that governs certain brain wave activity and hormone production. In some people, this shift changes mood-related chemicals in a way that can cause depression. Highly sensitive people are especially prone to depression as the weather changes. Darkness one hour earlier can shock a sensitive person’s system much like jet lag — generating an angry response from the central nervous system.
Here are a few way sto survive the shorter days of winter.
1. Get a chavrusah or do homework with your kids
2.  Use a Sun Lamp
Bright-light therapy has proven to be an effective treatment for seasonal affective disorder, also known as the winter blues.
