2. We do not say tachnun after Mincha on erev Tisha Beav. One may not take a leasurly stroll unless he does it commonly for health reasons.

4. It must be eaten after noon and before shkiah/sunset and no other meal may be eaten thereafter. One may drink water or eat if he did not assume the fast after the seudas hamafsekes.

5. The Seudas Hamefsekes may be preceded by a regular meal the minhag is to daven mincha in between the 2 meals.
6. The minhag is for the seudas hamafsekes to eat only bread and water, and a boiled egg dipped in ash some dip the bread in Ash.
7. The seudah is eaten seated on the ground or on a stool within 3 tefachim, we do not socialize and we it alone and avoid eating three people together to avoid a chiyuv of zimun

WABC Reports on The Lightning Strike in Lakewood.

LAKEWOOD, New Jersey (WABC) -- It was a morning of wild weather across the
area, with heavy rain, gusty wind and thunderstorms. Central and southern New Jersey were especially hard hit, including a transformer fire in New Brunswick that closed roads for hours and a lightning strike in Lakewood the blew a hole in a family's roof. Neighbors heard the deafening boom. "It was like a flash of white light in front of me," neighbor Adina Rubin said. "It was really loud."

The owner of the home was startled awake not by the thunder, but by an alarm and the slight smell of smoke. "I went out, I didn't really see anything," Yisroel Minzer said. "I saw there were a lot of brush fires around, I thought maybe it was because of that, maybe it's an oven. I was so in a daze. I was sleeping, so I just dozed the alarm and I just went back to sleep."

בס"ד, ערש"ק פר' מטות מסעי תשע"ז
ידידיי ומכובדיי קוראי ומתענגי הגליון 'מעדני הפרשה' הע"י
ימים אלו הם ימי בין המצרים ומצווים אנו לקונן על חורבן בית המקדש שנחרב בגלל שנאת חינם, ועל כ"א ואחד לעשות חשבון נפשו בנידון. מסרתי פעם שיעור בענין הנ"ל והסברתי לציבור השומעים כי אין לחפש חסרונות אצל הזולת, שע"י זה מתרבה שנאת חינם, וכל אחד שיחפש רק אצל עצמו. ואז אני שומע את אחד המשתתפים בשיעור נוזף בחבירו די בקול: בערל, שמעת מה שהוא אמר? תפסיק לחפש חסרונות אצל אחרים, תחפש אצל עצמך... וזה הזכיר לי: מעשה ביהודי שהיה מחזר על הפתחים בימי בין המצרים ומוכר ספרי 'חפץ חיים' ו'שמירת הלשון' כדי לזכות את הרבים ולמנוע שנאת חינם, נכנס לחדר מדרגות ונקש בדלת, בעל הבית פותח את הדלת ומסתכל עליו במבט משועשע, ושואל: מה אפשר לעזור? מראה לו היהודי כי הוא מוכר ספרי חפץ חיים ושמיה"ל. ומה כתוב בהם? שואל בעה"ב, עונה המוכר: בספרים אלו מבואר חומר איסור לשון הרע ורכילות וכו'. עונה לו הבעה"ב בשלווה: 'טעית בכתובת, לנו אין צורך לכך, אני וב"ב מקפידים ב"ה שלא לדבר לשון הרע אף פעם, אם כבר, גש לשכן בדלת ממול, אנשים מושחתים הם, אצלם בבית תמיד מדברים לשה"ר...'

The Chassidic world was plunged into mourning with the petirah Friday morning of the Sanz-Zhviller Rebbe, Harav Shlomo Goldman, zt”l, at the age of 70. Harav Shlomo was born in Yerushalayim in Nissan 5707/1947, to his father Harav Mordechai of Zhvill, the Yekara D’Malka, and his mother Rebbetzin Sheina Rochel. Rav Mordechai was the son of Harav Gedaliah Moshe, who was the son of Harav Shlomo (Reb Shlomke) of Zhvill. He was named for his illustrious great-grandfather who was niftar just over a year before he was born. 
In 5727/1967, Reb Shlomo married Rebbetzin Miriam Leah, the eldest daughter of the Klausenberger Rebbe, zy”a.

NJ EZ Pass Tag Holders Ripped off at NYC Bridges and Tunnels?

TRENTON, New Jersey (WABC) -- A new study finds that drivers with E-ZPass tags issued by non-New York-based agencies are being charged the cash rate at New York bridges and tunnels run by the MTA, instead of receiving the E-ZPass discount. "

Hamodia: Harav Yaakov Gershon Bursztyn, Z”l

Hamodia -The sudden and untimely passing of Harav Yaakov Gershon Bursztyn, z”l, has left a tremendous void in Bais Medrash Govoha, Lakewood, and Klal Yisrael as a whole. Rav Yaakov Gershon personified what it meant to be a Lakewood ben Torah; his every step was defined by his identity as a talmid of BMG. He retained this identity in its totality as he transitioned from a yungerman within the beis medrash to an integral member of the yeshivah’s administration, serving as registrar for nearly 45 years. In this capacity, he saw the growth of the yeshivah from some 600 talmidim in the early 1970s to more than 10 times that many today — and he comported himself in the same way in both periods.
