Other NJ School districts see a rise in busing costs

In New Jersey, a state law requires public school districts to transport non public school students or reimburse parents for transportation costs with aid in lieu. These students' parents are paying taxes but not using public school services. Towns in Ocean and Monmouth county are seeing an increase in busing reimbursements APP reports of sharp increases in Jackson, Brick, Howell, Toms River the article naturally puts the blame on private Lakewood schools. But thats not the case in Brick, were 826 children are transported to nonpublic schools most go to christian or other private schools. Even Jackson which according to the report will be busing 800 kids next year however the superintendent is quoted "When we were at our highest enrollment, there was high aid in lieu (reimbursement) numbers – and they weren’t going to Jewish yeshiva schools.” 
But its always fun to blame it all on Lakewood.

Lakewood township sets up safe exchange zone

LPD- The Township of Lakewood has set up a Safe Exchange Zone in the parking lot of the Municipal Building located at 231 3rd Street. Because of the high volume of online selling and trading of goods, we think it is important for the safety of our community to have a designated area for these purposes. “We wanted to give the residents of Lakewood a safe location to do exchanges and make purchases that are monitored by the Police Department”, said Chief Gregory Meyer. The Safe Exchange Zone is a well lit area that is under 24 hour surveillance. Read more Here.

List of Stores where Chometz may be purchased right after Pesach

Lakewood kashrus agencies have yet to compile a list. Lakewooders are frustrated and left in the dark not knowing which stores are ok and which ones are problematic. In other cities such as Baltimore, LA, Chicago they each have a kashrus agency whose job is to service the needs of the kehilla. A Kashrus agency is not only about making money it is also about servicing the tzibbur it officially represents. 
In addition to all frum stores who sold their chometz before Pesach 
Below is a list of national chains Based on lists from  CRC Chicago and star-k in Baltimore. Those lists are for stores in those regions.

Hamodia: Hagaon Harav Yosef Rosenblum, Zt”l

Hamodia (NEW YORK) - Harav Avraham Yosef Rosenblum, zt”l, Rosh Yeshivas Shaarei Yosher, Boro Park, was niftar on Monday night Acharon shel Pesach at the age of 89 in Maimonides Hospital, after an illness.
Photo Credit:

Rav Rosenblum was sought out for his daas Torah and hadrachah by thousands in the Torah world, famed as one of the spokesmen for Torah Jewry and guiding lights of Torah education in America.

He was a talmid of Harav Aharon Kotler, zt”l, at Beth Medrash Govoha in Lakewood, N.J. Once, when Rav Kotler learned that a certain Rav refused to make an appeal for the Lakewood yeshivah, he wondered aloud, “Who has talmidim like ours?” and he began listing his best talmidim, with Rav Yosef Rosenblum the first name mentioned.

Amazing story: Tzvi L. was in a bad car accident this Erev Pesach in Lakewood. His car flipped over and it took a half hour to cut him out. At the hospital they said he had bleeding in the brain and neck injuries and would need multiple surgeries R"L. Leil Seder his wife and he decided to make a Seder in the hospital anyways. The doctor came in and asked "what do you think you are doing?  If you eat and drink now, your surgery will have to be postponed!" They decided to proceed with the Seder. In the morning the hospital ran additional CT and other scans and the doctors were amazed that the results were clean and no surgery was needed!  The Lakewood askonim had given him the name of someone to call for a ride home if he was discharged on Yomtov (he refused to sign discharge papers so a nurse offered to sign for him).

Lakewood resident sends letter to WSJ editors

Just sent Leslie Brody and the WSJ Editors the following letter. Everyone please ad your own, this article was nothing less than libel. (author responded to be in touch for future article)

I read your article regarding the Lakewood School District and was severely disappointed. The article is based on lies and misinformation. The fact is that the Lakewood School District doesn’t not provide non-mandated busing to private school children. The fact is that the Lakewood School District does provide busing for non-mandated public school children.
