Editorial in APP
The Jackson Township Council’s unanimous approval last week of a resolution stating that the Jackson Police Department “shall not cooperate with or form any association with any neighborhood watch organized outside of Jackson Township” can be best characterized as a vote for fear and bigotry.

The vote was a reaction to reports, several of which could not be confirmed, that the Lakewood Civilian Safety Watch group was patrolling streets in Jackson —

Lakewood BOE to vote on new busing pilot plan could cost another $4 million

APP reports the pilot plan  which was introduced to give the private schools more control of the entitled busing could end up costing more.  LAKEWOOD - Legislation meant to ease Lakewood’s chronic busing woes could cost the school district an extra $4 million or more per year, district officials say. 
The analysis, which one legislator disputes, coincides with mounting local opposition to a pair of bills introduced in April that would give local Orthodox Jewish yeshivas and other private schools greater autonomy to work out transportation arrangements for their own students — using public funds.

Group from Plano, TX visits BMG in Lakewood

By Rabbi Nesanya Zakon on FB. What an inspiring and thought provoking day of study and touring at the largest Yeshiva in the world, Beth Medrash Govoha of Lakewood N.J. (my alma mater where I received my first Rabbinic ordination.)It was particularly wonderful to introduce the guys to the Rosh Hayeshiva, Rabbi Yeruchem Olshin who officiated at our wedding nearly 18 years ago! After having seen him once since 2000 he remembered me by name despite being dean of a Yeshiva of nearly 7,000 students! We also had lunch with a great visionary, Rabbi Aron Kotler, President of the Yeshiva. We are returning to Plano physically exhausted, spiritually enriched, inspired and having bonded as a group of not just friends but as nine brothers!!
