Lakewood Travel Advisory for Shabbos Chanukah

Lakewood Chaveirim reached out to Hamodia to share the following message with the community:

Shabbos Chanukah is one of the busiest travel times for Lakewood families. Hundreds of families make their way out of Lakewood, heading to Brooklyn, Monsey, upstate etc. Chaveirim urges travelers to take preventive action to avoid much heartache, as in the past years many have not had such pleasant Shabbos Chanukah memories.

-Avoid Squankum road, as many travelers leaving Lakewood use Squankum Road as their exit point, it’s a one lane road that cannot accommodate another few hundred cars. Alternatives would be Cedarbridge avenue, County line road- Lanes Mill Rd., Route 70, or Route 9 to the 195 East. All these will take you to the Garden State Parkway.

5th night of Chanukah minhag to give Tzedaka

The minhag is to give Chanukah gelt to aniyim on the fifth night. The simple reason since the 5th night never falls out on shabbos. More and more Lakewood mishpachos among us are struggling financially. People can't afford the basics. In many areas and developments it's common for the gabbei tzedaka or rav to have residents knocking on the door unable to pay the monthly rent or mortgage. The high property taxes and cost of living is taking its toll on the tzibbur. We have many local tzedakos who help for shabbos, yom tov, simchas, camp etc.. But the day to day living is a struggle even in a two income household.  On this night of Chanukah think of a relative or neighbor who maybe treading water or drowning. Not always can you tell from the outside, people are embarrassed and put on a facade. Ask around and give tzedaka bderech kavod. Let's help and look after our own.

Dr. Shanik- Zika Travel ban still in effect for Miami Dade county until next month

In a Letter dated December 12, 2016 Lakewood pediatrician Dr. Shanik wrote there is still a travel ban to Certain areas of Florida.
 "While there have been no new cases of Zika Virus in the last 45 days there is still a partial ban on travel to Miami Dade county for at least the next month. This still means that no women of child bearing age and/or their husband should travel to Miami Dade county, Florida due to the possibility of contracting the Zika virus, also anyone  that travels to that area can bring the virus back and cause further spreading locally.... All other areas of Florida are safe for travel as of now. DR Shanik & DR. Heimowitz."

Cold weather brings more cars to Clustered bus stops in Lakewood

The cold weather is here but for the Lakewood kids it means driving by car to the bus stops. The new busing system eliminated the close to home bus stops forcing parents to cluster at the main roads. That made parents, having to schlepp little babies and all other children while waiting for the bus. The freezing cold weather now has more parents driving to the bus stops so the kids can wait in the warm cars until the bus comes. This also delays the buses, since it takes longer now at each stop as kids come out of the cars to the bus. While much progress was made there are still kids without bus routes.

The Lakewood olam can now have midwinter vacation in Florida. Earlier this year Lakewood pediatrician Dr. Shanik advised couples of child baring age and pregnant women not go to Florida because of the Zika virus.  Florida Gov. Rick Scott has lifted the final zone of active Zika transmission in Miami-Dade, eliminating the last hot spot where mosquitoes were transmitting the virus.

‘Mamme Fuhn Klal Yisrael’

Article in Hamodia newspaper by Esther Moskowitz

Picture a middle-aged woman, living in England near many married children and grandchildren, reaping nachas from them and comfortably ensconced in the place she had lived her whole life. Her husband is a successful Mashgiach in the nearby yeshivah. She is a well-known mechaneches, frequently delivering shiurim for the women of the town.

Suddenly, there’s a change in plans. They are being asked to relocate, across the ocean, to far-off America.  How does she feel about this? “It’s good,” she tells her son. “Tatty has an opportunity for more harbotzas haTorah.” 
And so, Rebbetzin Miriam Salomon left her beloved Gateshead, left most of her family behind, and moved to Lakewood for her husband’s sake and for the sake of Klal Yisrael.

Let’s rewind a little, though. Harav Nosson Wachtfogel, zt”l, the original Mashgiach of Bais Medrash Govoha, was in his 90s, and was thinking ahead to the future of BMG and the position he would one day vacate. One night he had a dream, telling him that his successor was in England. After some investigation, he discovered Harav Mattisyahu Salomon, shlita, who was then the Mashgiach of the Gateshead yeshivah. He felt that this was the person he was looking for.

So began a new period in Lakewood, and among world Jewry.

Rav Mattisyahu Salomon became the beloved “Tatte fun Klal Yisrael” and his Rebbetzin became the “Mamme fun Klal Yisrael.” Harav Yeruchim Olshin, Rosh Yeshivah of BMG, said in his hesped for

After Chestnut shul closed down the minyan factory and canceled the half hour minyanim, there is interest for a new 9:30 am minyan in the south side of Lakewood.

(Ltoeles Harabim for those who cannot daven Earlier)
The 9:30 Minyan of the Chestnut Shul which has just been stopped-due to construction of a new Simcha Hall-has been moved to the Chateau Park Vosikin Shul located at 189 Chateau Drive in the Basement. The Minyan will be starting this coming sunday December 11 & continue throughout the year. This will be the only Minyan there besides for Vosikin Shachris every morning with no 10:00 or later Shachris.

We owe alot of Hakaras Hatov to the many people who helped replace this Minyan to another location on the South side for those who need it.

any questions or suggestions please don't hesitate to contact me at 732-444-8735
Thank you.

Winning $1 Million dollar lottery ticket "Mistakenly" sold in Lakewood NJ

Foxnews-A mistakenly sold lottery ticket has earned a New Jersey couple $1 million.
State lottery officials say 70-year-old Dante Castillo usually picks his own numbers. But when the Manchester man bought some tickets for last Thursday’s Cash4Life jackpot at Sam’s Day & Nite Food Store located on 1200 River Avenue in Lakewood, the clerk accidentally sold him a ticket with computer-generated numbers. That ticket proved to be the winner, matching the five main numbers drawn but not the cash ball number.

Report: Levaya of Rebbetzin Miriam Salomon a''h in Lakewood

LAKEWOOD - The Torah world was plunged into mourning Monday morning with the petirah of Rebbetzin Miriam Salomon, a”h, the wife of, ybl”c, Harav Mattisyahu Salomon, shlita, Mashgiach of Bais Medrash Govoha (BMG) of Lakewood. She was remembered as the ultimate eishes chaver whose life was defined by her absolute dedication to the Mashgiach as well as to the needs of his many talmidim and the myriads who seek his counsel. With her natural sense of selflessness and pure yiras Shamayim, she cared for and inspired all those who were privileged to come in contact with her. She was 75 years old.

“What a zechus she had … I depended entirely on my wife; she was a source of so much chizuk,” said Rav Salomon in his hesped, a mussar shmuess in itself in which the Mashgiach gave short explanations on each passuk in Eishes Chayil relating them one-by-one to his Rebbetzin. “Her whole life was filled with doing good for others, for big and for small, for so many in this town.”
