Halachos When Yom Kippur falls out on Shabbos, 5778


Rav Levi Yitzchok of barditchev, know as "The advocate" was always calm when yom kippur fell on shabbos. The reason he said, is that since Writing on shabbos is prohibited , except to save a life So too God will not write on shabbos except to save our lives. 

This year Yom Kippur 5778 falls out on Shabbos there are some halachos pertaining to this day.
1.  We say Avinu Malkeinu by Shachris on Erev Yom Kippur that comes out on Friday since we dont say it on Yom Kippur
2. One should have in mind to be Yoitze kiddush hayom of shabbos by the bracha of mekadesh hashabos after vayechulu.
3.We do not say Avinu malkeinu According to Ashkenazi customs since we dont ask for personal requests on Shabbos. However by Neeilah we do say it.
4. various minhagim if we say the yud gimmel middos by krias hatorah.
5. If one must eat- Children, or someone sick, according to most poskim we do not recite kiddush before eating.

The Talmud states, "If only Israel would keep two [consecutive] Shabbosim, they would be immediately redeemed"
.(Shabbos 118b) The book Noam Megadim (parashas Emor), from Rabbi Eliezer Ish Horowitz, a disciple of Rabbi Elimelech of Lizhensk, offers a compelling interpretation of the passage in the Talmud; that the two Shabbosos refer to two Shabbosos which comes together. That can only be when Yom Kippur falls out

ערב יום הכיפורים תשע"ח מעדני הפרשה

בס"ד, ערב יום הכיפורים תשע"ח
ידידיי ומכובדיי קוראי ומתענגי הגליון 'מעדני הפרשה' הע"י

עומדים אנו סמוך ונראה ליום הקדוש והנורא, כל אחד מפשפש במעשיו ומבקשים סליחה ומחילה ממי שפגעו במהלך השנה, מישהו שלח לי הודעה 'סליחה אם פגעתי, ולא פגעתי בול'...

יש ווארט ידוע מהרה"ק רבי מאיר מפראמישלאן זיע"א, שהיה אומר לאלו שנוטלים תרנגול לכפרה וחושבים שבזה יצאו ידי חובה, וכה פירש את שלשת הפסוקים הראשונים של פרק ג' באיכה, כביכול התרנגול מבטא את מחשבותיו: 'אני הגבר' זהו התרנגול הקרוי גבר, 'ראה עני' רואה את העני הערום מן המצוות 'בשבט עברתו', משתמש בי כמקל לבער את עבירותיו: 'אותי נהג ויולך' הוא מוליך אותי 'חושך ולא אור' בעריוה"כ לפנות בוקר: 'אך בי', אם הוא חושב שבי לבד יוצא ידי חוב, אזי, 'יהפוך ידו כל היום', יכול לסובב כל היום כפרות ולא יועיל ללא תשובה.

An Assault on our Chinuch System

Two months ago during summer vacation a veteran Lkwd mechanech was brutally punched beaten and knocked to the ground by someone who was upset about the education of a child. The incitement by the frum media and self appointed activists no doubt contributed to this assault. The rhetoric emanating across the board has created an atmosphere of blame and accusing Rebbeim and principals for all short comings and failings of anyone who went through the system. An unfortunate incident were someone R"L died of an Over dose was used as a spring board to openly bash and criticize our chinuch system. The so called rabble rousers were quick to the trigger each one using their platforms to blame and undermine years of Jewish education. They did it from their Bench at the court, through their radio show, voice notes on watsapp, social media posts, they wrote articles in all publications and the drumbeat was on. 
Its easy to hide behind a suicide r'L  and then go ahead and bash our dedicated rebbeim and principals. Many of theses self appointed activists have NEVER stepped foot in a classroom or have any involvement with chinuch, but that didnt matter they smelled blood and ran with it. Tisha B'av no longer was about the Churban Bais Hamikdash or Sinas Chinom it was used to further an agenda of blaming the system. There are many factors that contribute to a persons success or failings. They could be family issues, societal pressures, mental health issues, social issues and yes even school issues. But all was ignored and the "experts" knew exactly who and what to pin the blame on!
They also ignored the current opiod epidemic gripping the nation or even any mention to go after the drug pushers. Their agenda is transparent they decided what the symptom is and ran with it.
It is now Erev Yom Kippur that we must ask a collective mechila from all our selfless educators and Rebbeim who have been shunned and victimized by a few overzealous activists let them know we stand with them and wont get caught up in a campaign to undermine our mesorah.

Los Angeles Times: Reports on Lakewood

L.A. Times:  reports from 3,000 miles away, a mixed report about the raids.
It was a spectacle nobody in this sleepy New Jersey town would forget.
Early one Monday morning, police and FBI agents in bulletproof vests bounded up the steps of suburban townhouses and split levels, threatening to break down the doors, hauling out in handcuffs husbands and wives in the distinctive clothing of ultra-Orthodox Jews.......It was the dramatic kickoff of a series of well-publicized raids
“None of these people used any of this welfare money for an extravagant lifestyle. They were struggling to make ends meet and trying to pay medical bills,” said Harold Herskowitz, a businessman who runs a toy store in Lakewood. He believes the prosecutions were motivated by hostility toward the ultra-Orthodox.
“I’m the child of Holocaust survivors; I don’t appreciate Jewish people dragged out in public early in the morning,” Herskowitz said.

Safety First?

וישמן ישורון
Erev Rosh Hashana Lakewood.
The infamous LED Digital Billboards in Lakewood went Live.  Given the fact of the many potential safety issues that the public raised, it's ironic and shocking that of all people and places Hatzolah would be the first to run an ad. Also the well connected assemblyman  advertised on it.  What kind of message are they sending the community? ?
Is life all about Money?
This will also put a financial burden on organizations to have to spend money for another platform. It was obviously done to kosher it that people will be scared to criticize but all this does is reinforce what everyone is screaming about.  Why would Hatzolah do something so stupid if their mission is to protect and save lives. Why jump in to something that many see as very dangerous both in Ruchniyus and Gashmiyus.

Important Message ahead of 3 Day Yom Tov


TBL: Remember When the Committee and Miller made this Promise?

TBL: At the 10/6/16 Township Committee meetingMayor Miller made the following announcement:

“As far as I’m concerned – my message out there – I’m done with all the density – I’m done with any additional rezoning – as far as I’m concerned under my watch as the mayor there is not going to be any rezoning from this committee – I defer to the master plan committee – but I think the sentiment out there is that we’re at capacity. We’re really at capacity and I kind of agree with you.”
A motion was unanimously passed instructing committeeman Akerman to send a letter to Justin Flancbaum instructing him as to how they would like the master plan be constructed. At the subsequent Township Committee Meeting

The Selichos Concerts

Many wonder, is nothing sacred anymore? Selichos,  for centuries klal yisrael approached it with fear and trepidation as the preparation for the yemei hadin, unfortunately it has now turned into full blown concerts and kumzits style events. The Piyut says זוחלים ורועדים we tremble and shiver as we beg Hashem to forgive us.  Instead we see live broadcasts and videos of these new selichos concerts each one crazier than the next. You wont see a clip of how selichos is said in a regular normal shul the way it always was.

 Some argue these concerts is the only way people feel they can connect and feel close to hashem as it says לשמוע אל הרינה ואל התפילה. It wasn't until the emergence of the Carlebach style selichos  that this phenomenon took off. In previous generations shuls had chazonim who would lead the service but it was not in the form of a musical happy concert. It was a soul stirring prayer in a serious atmosphere. Maybe this is what the generation needs otherwise people wont come to shul or get inspired but its definitely not the norm.

First Live Stream by Township Poor Sound Quality

Its always better when  the private industry does it, the live video stream hosted by Lakewood township could use improvement. It was not the same quality that a private citizen provided when recording the township meetings.The sound quality was very poor it was hard to hear the committee members talking. The video quality is ok for now. There is no direct link on the township website to see the archived video unless you click on the original link HERE. As of now it is also not available on Youtube not everyone has time to watch it live it should be easily view-able afterwards.

The Mayor acknowledged that they will review the video feed and tweak what needs to be fixed.

A Year Later: Where Is The Rent Control Board

Last September there was an attempt by Lakewood Township to abolish the rent control board. Lakewood has thousands of residents who are renters, but the Board to protect Tenants rights and settle disputes with landlords was not reappointed after an attempt to abolish it by Lakewood Mayor Menashe Miller and the township committee. HERE
This Year Mayor Ray Coles has not reappointed the board either. 
At first the committee tried to sneak it through with Mayor Miller reading the ordnance when the public got wind of it there was an outrage and Mayor Miller vowed the Township will reinstate the rent control Board by January 2017. That never happened.  The Volunteer board members themselves were not told about the abolishing attempt and were even more surprised that they were not reappointed. A Aattorney claimed the timing was a nice coincidence.  
Why is Lakewood township abolishing the rent control board

Feeling the heat township backs off proposal to abolish rent control board

Lakewood Rent control board still not appointed

Report: Attorney, timing of ordinance to abolish RCB was a 'nice coincidence'

The Lakewood planning board was expected to vote last night on the proposed masterplan for Lakewood township. Angry residents from a cross section of Lakewood spoke out at the meetings opposing the proposed density in the report. Serious traffic concerns quality of life and safety issues were brought up. The board postponed the vote to the October 3rd meeting so they can have time to incorporate some of the recommendations of the public into the plan.

TBL: Open Letter to Lakewood Planning Board Members

Take Back Lakewood
Final Planning Board Master Plan meeting Wednesday night September 13th at 6:00

Hi,

I'm reaching out to you at this critical last moment. After many meetings it's now extremely clear - the public in Lakewood does NOT want this!!!!

This is a one sided Master Plan that gives the developers all of the upside with only veiled hints at requests for better building standards.

Something to think about - when a single application comes to the board - a lawyer presents all of the angles, you weigh everything carefully and hear the neighbors before making a careful decision.

With the Master Plan - none of you fully understand the precise implications of what you are being asked to approve.
How many units are they asking you to approve?
What is the reason and source for each request?
Why are we looking to increase ANY density BEFORE the infrastructure is in place?? (Wait until AFTER all current traffic is resolved before considering any increases in density)
This Master Plan gives away ALL of your leverage to later require developers to make improvements since they will have 'by right applications'
The public has been vocally protesting this entire process for 8 months and they have been completely ignored!! WE the residents do NOT want this!!

Guilty by Association

Guilty by association, that is what you would assume from the APP report about the amnesty seminar last night in Toms River. The headline read "Lakewood Medicaid cheats stay home". The assumption is that anyone who lives in Lakewood and attends the meeting is a criminal and a tax cheat or anyone who lives in Lakewood and did not come must also be a tax cheat. The article goes further claiming that the bad guys did not show up
 "What they got instead were no bad guys showing up -- instead, about three-dozen people who said they were sick of hearing about public assistance scams". 

How would they know who is a bad guy? did they interrogate everyone who walked through the doors? Did organizers expect people to walk in and announce publicly they are criminals?  could there possibly be other reasons why people would want or not want to attend this event?

Important Message For Residents of Route 9 South in Lakewood

The forest near Hearthstone and corner of Cross and Massachusetts are being proposed for duplexes which will adversely affect the already congested  route 9.  Neighbors are urged to attend Township meeting tonight at 6pm.  The developers have said that if they see a strong showing they would do single family homes

Last chance. Your voice needs to be heard Tonight

Last chance. Your voice needs to be heard.
Please come to the master plan meetings tonight and Wednesday night at 6 pm. Show your displeasure with the townships plan to build 11 thousand more duplexes. 11 thousand more basement apartments 36 thousand more cars? How many more schools and shuls will we need? Where will our schools go? How much higher could our taxes go as more services are needed? How many more buses can fit on the roads? 

A few outspoken people cannot save you and your home. You need to help yourselves. If you live on the south side of town you will spend your life in traffic. If you live on the north side it is only a matter of time before the madness spreads. If you plan on living in Lakewood, it's not too late. If you think its bad now, it will get much worse. 

Only you can stop it. Take a night out. Bring the kids. Bring the grandparents. This is your last chance to save your town from the hands of a few greedy people. 
Don't sit back and say it can't be stopped. You can stop it 
6 pm tonight and Wednesday night at the township building main auditorium.

Indian Hair Scare 2.0

They are at it again,  signs were posted in Lakewood shuls and ads in local papers about the possibility of Indian temple hair making its way into the shaitel industry.  The letter from 3 months ago is signed by Israeli rabbonim, not one American rav signed the letter. The tumul started in 2004 and at the time the claim was that most human hair used to manufacture shaitels comes from India as people donate their hair to the temples thus making it problem benefiting from Avoda Zara. The new letter claims that even if there are hechsherim one can not rely on them. Not one American Rav signed on to this letter.  

Traffic Chaos During Morning Rush

This morning Traffic
Talk about smart planning motorists in Lakewood sat in traffic for an hour this morning along Cedarbridge New Hampshire and the surrounding streets. It was due to a repaving project going on at Oberlin Avenue. Officials had no better time to do it than smack in middle of the morning commute when all the buses are out when everyone is going to work and to learn.  What are officials thinking?

חברים כל ישראל Cant We All get Along

Lakewood and Houston, when Hurricane Harvey flooded the city of Houston it brought out the best of us. In no time Lakewood residents mobilized to bring relief to the stricken areas of Texas. It is a bit surprising and sadly disturbing about the press coverage in various Lakewood media outlets. In articles written about how much chesed was done, they omitted and ignored the fact that Lakewood Chaveirim Volunteers were on hand to help load the trucks that went to Houston. Not only did they get no credit but it looks like they made sure not to have any picture identifying anything about Chaveirim. Im sure these selfless chaveirim members are not looking for publicity or even asking for kavod but if these media outlets claim to represent the Lakewood community its a bit shocking they leave out this important fact when reporting about the Lakewood Houston relief. We have a wonderful community of organizations and volunteers who give up their time to help others. Stories of Chesed in times of crisis should bring out the best of us and not do the opposite. Both the Yated and Hamodia had beautiful articles of the chesed that poured in from around the world they mentioned the effort of Lakewood Chaveirim. Our local press should do the same.

Whispering Pines Bus stops were Moved to Squankum Rd

Whispering Pines Residents, in Lakewood were surprised to learn the school buses will not be going into the development  at all.  The LSTA made the official bus stop on Squankum Rd, some stops were across Squankum rd. Residents reached out to the LSTA and the bus companies about the danger of hundreds of kids waiting on Squankum rd.  It was decided the buses will  indeed go into whispering pines and the stops will be by the Playground area. Residents are asked to cooperate with parking issues so the buses could go through. Parking rules will be strictly enforced. As of this week some buses refused to enter and only stopped on Squankum road.

In response to Lakewood arrests NJ Offers 90 day Pilot program to avoid fear of prosecution

NJ Comptrollers office and Ocean county prosecutors office announce 90 pilot program for residents who believe they received benefits improperly to get off the programs. This is not amnesty but a chance to comply without the fear of getting arrested if they dont the investigation will continue

NJ.com In-the wake of more than two dozen arrests in Lakewood this summer for alleged public assistance fraud, the state comptroller's office was expected to announce a program this morning that would give Ocean County residents who either purposely or inadvertently received unwarranted Medicaid benefits a 90-day window to avoid criminal prosecution.

"This is not an amnesty program. This is not a 'Get of out jail free' card," Comptroller Philip Degnan told The Star-Ledger Wednesday night. "This is a chance for people to come into compliance without fear of prosecution."

Degnan said he hoped the new program would save his office the investigative muscle and prosecution costs of pursuing more criminal charges.

"Our investigations have led us to believe there is a population in Ocean County that will benefit from the program," he said. "If they decide not to, we will continue our mission" of investigating Medicaid fraud.

Statement from the VAAD "The Vaad supports any and all programs that can help improve compliance rates among the general public "We hear that some staffers in some agencies don't know the rules sufficiently, and that different staffers or different processing centers may give varying answers to similar questions presented by families seeking assistance," the statement said. "This is particularly true as health care eligibility rules have changed significantly, and the agencies may be understaffed. This can sometimes create confusion as to eligibility."
