Aaron Mallin of Bergenfield, New Jersey, was visiting Mt. Carmel cemetery, in the Wissoming section of the city, on Sunday morning for the occasion of his father’s yahrtzeit, when he made the troubling discovery.

“It’s shocking and very disturbing, especially for the families who have loved ones buried there,” he told Hamodia. “I’ve been coming here for 30 years and I’ve never seen anything like this.”

Turx to AlJezzira on Trump, "I've always felt that we had this mutual understanding,"

AJN Before President Donald Trump's infamous 76-minute press conference on February 16, Jake Turx was a relatively unknown Washington reporter for Ami magazine.

But that changed dramatically when Turx, who is visibly Jewish but describes himself as a "post-labellist millennial", stood up after Trump pointed to him, seeking a "friendly reporter".

Turx, who covered both the Trump campaign and that of his opponent Hillary Clinton, was well known to the president.

"I've always felt that we had this mutual understanding," Turx, 30, told Al Jazeera. "That he trusted me."

NYT- A Jewish Reporter Got to Ask Trump a Question. It Didn’t Go Well. Jake Turx is a newly minted White House correspondent for a publication that has never before had a seat in the White House press corps: Ami Magazine, an Orthodox Jewish weekly based in Brooklyn. He is a singular presence in the briefing room: a young Hasidic Jew with side curls tucked behind his ears and a skullcap embroidered with his Twitter handle.
 at a news conference on Thursday, saying he was looking for a “friendly reporter,” Mr. Turx was prepared. He had spent an hour crafting a question about a recent surge of anti-Semitism, with a preamble that he hoped would convey his supportive disposition toward Mr. Trump.

Hamodia: “A Day Without Immigrants” in Lakewood

Hamodia.com reports on “A Day Without Immigrants” in Lakewood

LAKEWOOD - As immigrants across America stayed home from work and rallied in protest of the Trump administration’s crackdown on illegal migration to the United States, Jewish institutions and businesses in Lakewood, nearly all of which employ members of the town’s large Mexican community, found themselves caught in the highly charged political debate. Effects were highly varied, but none escaped without at least a discussion of what workers would do on what organizers billed as a “day without immigrants.”

At Yussi’s deli and take-out on Second Street, a manager said that all of his employees showed up for work in the morning, but asked if they could take off for an hour or two to attend the rally being held nearby. He added that the workers’ absence did cause a certain amount of strain on operations, given that Thursday is a particularly busy day for the popular take-out shop’s pre-Shabbos business, but permission was granted nevertheless. 
“They asked very nicely and we said they could go. I respect what they’re doing, they’re not being violent or anything, they’re just worried,” he said.

At the Heimish Bakery, which also operates a café, next door on Second Street,

Retailer drops Return Policy That Targeted Lakewood, Passaic

TRENTON – An online children's clothing retailer has agreed to drop its policy of not offering refunds for orders originating in Lakewood, the state attorney general's office said Thursday.

Shan and Toad, which appears to be based in Riverside, California, based on its contact telephone number, agreed to drop its policy of only offering store credit or merchandise exchange to shoppers from Lakewood and Passaic, two communities that contain large populations of Orthodox Jews, Attorney General Christopher S. Porrino announced.

Turx responds: Trump misunderstood me my question was legitimate

After the fall out with President Trump Ami White-house correspondent Jake Turx speaks to Israel website BHOL. He said the president misunderstood the question and did not let him finish.  The question about the rise of over 50 anti Semitic incidents since Trump took office is concerning to the Jewish community in the USA. Colleagues told turn he is now an official WH reporter after the president called him a liar. Turx said he's not worried of getting distanced as a reporter and doubled down that he will seek clarification from the press secretary "I was treated unfairly"

BD"E Ruchama Malka (Malkie) Hirth A"H

Levaya  will take place 4:45 PM at shiras Devorah 575 Oak street Lakewood,  NJ
Matzav- It is with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the passing of Ruchama Malka (Malkie) Hirth a”h. She was just seven years old.

Ruchama Malka was a daughter of Rabbi and Mrs. Shmuel Fishel and Shainy Hirth of Lakewood and a granddaughter of Rav Mordechai Hirth (Brooklyn) and lhbcl”c Rav Abba Gorelick zt”l, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Gedola Zichron Moshe of South Fallsburg, NY.
Her father, Rav Shmuel, is the rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Nefesh Hachaim of Lakewood, NJ.

Malkie battled leukemia for the last five years of her life. A most special neshamah, at the young age of 7 she taught others by example how to live – how to really live – a life of emunah.

Malkie, in a recording that was widely disseminated, told Klal Yisroel, “The gates of tears are never closed,” urging them to keep up their tefillos and tears on her behalf.

Mesivta acceptance Farhers underway in Lakewood

Starting this past motzei Shabbos 8th grade boys in Lakewood began taking farhers for Mesivta. There are Ka"h 37 mesivtos in town and some of them have over 250 applications for 9th grade. Most bochurim applied to at least 3 mesivtos hoping to get accepted to one of their choosing.  Like always there is a group of the  3 or 5 mostly sought after yeshivas  but it's hard to get into others too. Other's also apply for out of town mesivtos.
 Hatzlacha to all the boys on their bechinos may they continue shteiging wherever they get in.

Tu B'shvat or Krias Yam Suf

 Playgroup morahs in Lakewood had a tough chinuch question this past week.  Between midwinter break and the snow storm the kids only showed up to playgroup for a day and a half. The morahs were faced with a dilemma what to focus on Tu B'shvat or teach the children about Krias Yam suf. Its usually takes a few days to prepare the kinderlach and do all the projects with them. The decision was made based on the projects available most morahs focused on Tu Bishvat others held to teach the yesodos of Krias Yam Suf.  Eilu Veilu.
