  1. Dear Lakewood VAAD (and the rest of the powers that be), this is all on you. Thanks to what you've done to your town, our neighboring towns are scared of what might happen to them (and rightfully so).

  2. Rabbi Schnall gets results!

  3. That same council member also said anybody that opposes the ban is bigoted. The chuztpah!

    It`s Chutzpah that we in Lakewood have congested Ocean County traffic.
    Nobody in town will tell their quality of life has improved in the past 10 years.
    We might have more pizza and sushi per square mile than we did then but life is much more stressed.
    People in Jackson have wised up and have been forced to take notice of Lakewood`s "genius".

  5. Alumni beis eliyahu, please explain to us all exactly what that has to do with banning dorms ANYWHERE in jackson

    1. It is an overeacting to a real fear, which is human nature, not anti-semitism.

      Please understand that there is a gantze velt out there that is not blind
