Israeli Supermarket Chain to open in Lakewood

Osher Ad will open its doors in New York and New Jersey, providing ultra-Orthodox Jewish and other local customers with kosher products at low prices.
 Osher Ad will be the first Israeli supermarket chain to break into the US market, opening a number of branches in New York and New Jersey areas.

A Brooklyn branch is set to be located on a 5,700 square meter plot with 300 parking spots. “We have been surveying the area for a number of years in expectation of this opportunity,” said Aryeh Baum, one of the owners of Osher Ad. “Commercial properties that suit our concept in terms of size are very rare in this area, where one of the largest ultra-Orthodox Jewish communities in the world resides.”

A branch will also open in Lakewood, New Jersey, the city with the highest growing ultra-Orthodox Jewish population in the US, which currently stands at 60,000 or approximately half of the city. Moreover, a third branch will be opened in Munsie, a city in upstate New York, in which a large ultra-Orthodox Jewish community lives as well.

Donald trump took some down time from his busy schedule to check up on his family particular his Frum dauther and son in law. Since his son in law has connections with Lakewood and are donors to the yeshiva the Donald takes an interest in the comings and goings in that town down the Jersey shore. An aid delivered interesting articles about Lakewood for him to catch up on. A speech by a fellow philanthropist caught his attention and he took the time to listen to the entire speech. Mr. Trump was not happy at all after reading the responses from other billionaires in Lakewood he felt it was his turn to chime in as well.

Mishloach Manos tracking in Lakewood


Copying the successful campaign of "where is George? in tracking dollar bills the same idea has now been implemented in Lakewood for Mishloach manos. Lazy or cheap people tend to recycle others shalach manos and pass it on. The original senders are upset about this and this year  someone decided to put an end to this practice. Gps trackers were descreetly placed in the shalach manos package enabling the first sender to track its progress across Lakewood in real time. If anyone receives their original one back from someone else they will win a shopping spree  at toys for thought.

Askan Semicha program

Veteran and seasoned askanim were not happy with the title "askan" used cheaply by anyone whose photo is in the paper. "You dont become an askan overnight" said a veteran noted askan. You must be in thousands of pictures and centerfolds to achieve askan status. To protect the brand no one is allowed to be called askan without prior certification and semicha from certified askanim

Well finally his email acct was hacked by 2 local yeshiva bochurim at the Library who were suspended for 2 days for missing the Magen Avrohom zman of krias shema. He signed his name Gadol Harotze Beilum shem his pen name is Lama zeh Tishal Lishmi.

New Ani Maamins found in Geniza


A local Otzar was shocked to discover 5 new Ani Maamins added to the famous yud gimmel Ikrim of the Rambam. Excited for their new find it was decided to read them out publicly. A event was organized and streamed live to all media outlets where thousands of lakewood Talmidei Chachomim were in attendance. The honor to read the new found ani maamins was given to the highest bidder. A wealthy philanthropist took to the podium to read them out loud but somehow other words came out of his mouth which angered many in the attendance. He apologized for the gaffe it turns out someone hacked the teleprompter he was reading it from.

Lakewood Vaad gets young blood


After loosing the Fire elections The Vaad Has decided they are out of touch and the has come to bring fresh young blood that will represent the Kehilla.A delegation was sent to Dr shaniks office and vaad  members chose  the first ten kids they saw putting a penny in the spinning pushka." It shows they care about others they give instead of taking" said a Vaad spokesperson on condition of remaining anonymous. At the next official meeting  Soda was replaced by Baby formula an Gerber jars instead of sushi. The screaming and crying remained the same.

Peaceful solution in court dispute


An argument over a basketball court finally came to a peaceful solution after some intervention and negotiations by community members. A newly built development had a proposed site for a basketball court so the kids can play. Other residents were adamantly opposed to having  a basketball court in their heilige shechunah. Both sides presented their case to a outside Rav who had no negius to either side and Like king solomon he offered a simple solution dont put up the baskets but call it a basketball court.

Valet APP service now coming to Town

Lakewood media all bought out by national media giant


Recently Publications and news outlets in Lakewood have all been publishing the same news articles leaving readers scratching their heads. In addition other important news stories and events have not been covered at all. Some politicians, askanim are getting much more coverage airtime and pohotoops than others. Some even managed to have negative articles about them pulled. after further investigation it was revealed a national parent company has bought off all of Lakewood's media leaving residents in the dark forcing them to the treifineh veb.

New supermarket coming to town.
HAHAHAHAH!!!!

Happy Purim

Its never fun getting stuck with gas


A yeshiva where everyone is accepted no rejection letters sent

Once a year people can feel good knowing their kids are accepted to a yeshiva without the worries and shame of rejection. Even Rechnitz would support it. A Yeshiva where anyone can come and learn anytime of the day no questions asked. No one looks at the hat you wear or if you wear one no one looks at the color of your shirt. As a matter of fact you can wear the most colorful shirt in the world without a trace of white at all and still be accepted. There is no shortage of space at all you can choose any of their many satellite locations. No other parents will call the menahel not to take your child in. Tznius issues are overlooked. "Its a feeling I cant describe" said a proud father whose fridge is covered with rejection letters he received over the years from Kindergarden through high school. Yeshivas Mordechai Hatzadik is one of a kind and at least one day a year in Lakewood all are accepted. The real Simcha of Purim.

OJPAC: State underfunding is the problem

 The veto-powered monitor over the school board in Lakewood, NJ, has made cuts to the public school as state underfunding is proven again to be the problem. The veto-powered monitor made the cuts as he faced the same problem that the "school board majority of white Ultra Orthodox Jewish men" faced before him: Rising mandated programs expenses which by law are required to be paid before voluntary programs. But due to a faulty funding formula the state underfunds the district. Hence, the cuts to the public school which has discretionary programs.
Bigots placed the blame of past cuts in Lakewood onto "the majority Orthodox Jewish school board" with the notion that the board members do not care for minority students in the public school sector.

State monitor to slash Courtesy busing for next year among other cuts

APP.com reports the State monitor is proposing major cuts to plug a 12 million dollar hole. Lakewood- A proposed budget for the 2016-17 school year eliminates courtesy busing, slashes 68 teaching positions, and cancels all middle-school sports and clubs, among other draconian measures aimed at closing a projected $12 million deficit. The Board of Education is scheduled to vote tonight on the tentative budget at a special meeting at the high school, starting at 8 p.m. Some of the cuts -- although notably not the cancellation of courtesy busing service, which would affect more than 10,000 schoolchildren -- could be avoided if voters approve a series of seven itemized referendum questions totaling more than $8.3 million in additional tax levies in November. read more at APP.com

Home sales are stronger than the opposition

APP.com reports on the surge of home sales in neighboring townships and the opposition to it by locals. "Obviously there are some people who are very disturbed by certain people moving in," said Esther Klein, a top-selling real estate agent with ReMax on the Move Realty in Lakewood. "I think it's a little bit out of control."  in another quote "The people that are selling their houses for substantial profits are not the ones that are complaining, obviously," said Avi Schnall, the state director for Agudath Israel of America, an advocacy group that represents the interests of the Orthodox Jewish community. An Asbury Park Press analysis of real estate sales data from the New Jersey Department of the Treasury shows the heaviest sales activity concentrated in three main areas, all within a mile or two of the Lakewood border: Jackson's Whitesville section, which includes Galassi Court; the township's Brookwood developments, located farther north off West County Line Road, and a cluster of 14 streets in North Dover, north of Hickory Road. Together, those areas alone accounted for 132 sales since 2015, compared to 54 the year before. More than two-thirds of those homes had sale prices above what township assessors estimated them to be worth.

TR mayor clarifies and defends invasion remark

Responding to criticism Toms River Mayor clarified his remarks and said he has a lovely relationship with the Jewish community in Toms River. In a report from APP.com  "Criticized by Lakewood leaders for describing the efforts of Orthodox Jewish homebuyers to purchase properties in North Dover as "like an invasion," Mayor Thomas F. Kelaher defended himself  Tuesday, saying his comments were taken out of context. "Let's assume that I used that word," Kelaher said. "What I was referring to is the sworn testimony of neighbors in the North Dover area, who testified and used that term, that they feel like it's an invasion. That's the context in which I used it. The people who live there think that."

DR. Rich Roberts details ‘disingenuous’ donor call to stop Trump

Jewish Insider Dr. Rich Roberts of Lakewood, NJ, wrote Sunday to JI's Jared Sichel about his dismay with Republicans' strategy to stop Donald Trump. Roberts, one of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's major donors until he dropped out in September, said he has since remained undecided, but has donated to the campaigns of Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and to the since-suspended campaigns of Chris Christie and Rand Paul. He told JI he was on the March 1st conference call (likely the one related to Our Principles PAC, originally reported by the New York Times), which included top Republican operatives and major donors.

Lakewood heimishe for Trump

 According to many Hasidic voters and political commentators, Trump has sparked an undeniable interest in parts of this culturally isolated world. "Among my circle of friends, at least 90 percent [support] Trump," said Yanky Lichtman, a Trump supporter who lives in Lakewood, New Jersey, one of the biggest Orthodox Jewish communities in the New York area. Chaim Schlaff was born and raised in a Hasidic Jewish community in London. He now lives in an ultra-Orthodox neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, and describes himself as a "proud legal immigrant." He is also an enthusiastic Donald Trump supporter. 
Schlaff says he "loves" the way Trump speaks and so do most of his friends: "He talks about everything we think." Schlaff is not the only member of the Hasidic community in the greater New York City area that feels this way about Trump. According to many Hasidic voters and political commentators, Trump has sparked an undeniable interest in parts of this culturally isolated world.

Holy Schnitzel has various locations in the New York area including Brooklyn, 5 Towns, and Staten Island. They will replace Kosher Taco as a new alternative for a kosher meat restaurant in town.
