Jacksonleaks- Agudath Isreal has filed a motion to amend its lawsuit previously filed over ordinances adopted to ban schools and dormitories to include allegations that an ordinance which effectively blocked requests from residents to construct eruvin (plural of eruv) was made with discriminatory intent as well. This should come as no surprise as recent township emails released pursuant to NJ’s OPRA laws (and all available here) revealed the obvious targeting of eruvin. As reported elsewhere, the “Jackson Eruv Association” is considering their own lawsuit as well. See official statement from the Agudah website HERE Updated lawsuit is available below, the judge will rule whether to accept the amended version despite Jackson’s objections on November 20th.
Jacksonleaks.com The point of this page is to share info with the public and to raise the questions that need to be asked. We will gladly take any information that anyone wants to share with us and we will make the decision to publish it. Please send any information you may have to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Jackson next. NJ.com - New Jersey sues Mahwah over eruv, alleging discriminatory ordinance against Orthodox Jews
The state Attorney General’s office has filed a nine-count lawsuit against Mahwah and the town council, contending that a pair of ordinances passed last summer discriminates against Orthodox Jews and recalls the post-war era of white flight to the suburbs.
Rather than large-scale migrations of whites from urban areas to escape racial integration, Mahwah passed a pair of ordinances that the state argues unlawfully disfavors Orthodox Jews and deprives them of their Constitutional rights.
One ordinance banned non-New Jersey residents from using Mahwah's public parks and the other banned the posting of “lechis,” or little plastic strips, denoting the boundary of an eruv. An eruv is a perimeter in which Orthodox Jews can perform tasks they otherwise couldn’t on the Sabbath, such as push strollers and carry keys Read more at nj.com
With Elections just two weeks away in New Jersey both Gubernatorial candidates spoke out against the Eruv bans in some NJ towns. Republican Kim Guadango in an interview with Hamodia newspaper said "there is zero tolerance for any kind of discrimination on any level in any community". Democrat candidate Phil Murphy wrote an op-ed in the Jewish standard slamming the anti Semitic rhetoric around the Mahwah Eruv. Murphy: "When claims are made in public forums that a particular group “destroys” the local tax base upon entry, there is a problem. When a Holocaust survivor at a public meeting is heckled, and then denounced as a fraud, there is a problem. When well-intentioned residents are disparaged as “paid actors” for a “Jewish money conspiracy scheme,” there is a problem. When there is public discussion at a council meeting of the need to give out arm bands to those who will be permitted to use Mahwah’s parks, at the exclusion of those who are accused of “being dirty,” there is a problem. Hamodia: A related issue. There’s recently been a growth in anti-Semitism in New Jersey. You have it on an official level — Mahwah banning the eruv, Jackson passing a no-knocking bill. Both of these are widely seen as targeting Orthodox communities, saying we don’t want you here. There’s been vandalisms, attacks. You don’t hear any official condemnation of it. KG: Oh, you hear it from me all the time. We have to be ever-vigilant. We have the most strict anti-bullying laws in the country, or one of the most, and we need to be sure that there is zero tolerance for any kind of discrimination on any level in any community. And if those laws are designed to be discriminatory, they should be banned, period.
Lakewood Residents will have an opportunity to meet APP reporter covering Lakewood, Stacey Barchenger who will be in town tomorrow morning Wednesday October 24.

We are full. That's the message that parents got when they called to apply. Not for high school or mesivta not even for elementary school but for the 2 year old playgroup! parents must apply for their 2 year old child 10 months in advance or they will miss the self imposed deadline. The culture of grabbing first only creates a artificial hysteria where parents and even morahs are forced to open registration early because they are scared of loosing out if they wait a few more months. Its not fair for the parents and for the children. So much can change in 5-6 months a child may be held back they may need special services among other factors. We created a panic that only serves the "oischappers" that always look to beat everyone to it, causing a ripple effect that no one gains from. In previous years attempts were made to hold off registration until Tu bshvat but not everyone was on board and once a few playgroups start taking privately, others follow and break the agreed upon start time.
Based in Lakewood. Ages 19-24. This is an alternative to Eretz Yisroel, BMG etc. The Yeshiva World was hit by storm this past Elul with the opening of a brand new first of its kind Yeshiva with a revolutionary approach to accommodating its Bochurim in every way. This Yeshiva was indeed founded BY the Bochurim! After a group of Bochurim recently approached Harav Moshe Gutfreund to spearhead this exciting project, he enthusiastically implemented the establishment this past Elul of Yeshivas Lev Elimelech. A group of Bochurim that wanted high-level learning and guidance in many different areas recruited top Rabbeim to accommodate every spiritual and practical need without concern for any other factor other than each individual Bochur's well being. Hagoan Harav Simcha Bunim Cohen Shlita, has graciously accepted the position of Rosh Hayeshiva, imparting shiurim in halacha and hashkafa as well. He has also developed a warm and close kesher with each and every bocher.

Elections are 3 weeks away and this year NJ is one of two states where citizens will vote for a Governor. Democrat nominee Phil Murphy recently visited Lakewood and met with Vaad officials and some other special interests the general public was not invited. A new poll finds likely voters favor Democrat Phil Murphy over Republican Kim Guadagno to replace Gov. Chris Christie. The Vaad endorsed Guadango in the Republican primary back in May, but as it seems they may back Murphy in the general or make no endorsement at all. Murphy most likely will not get the general Lakewood vote even with a Vaad endorsement due to his liberal left policies and his plan to rise taxes by $1.3 Billion. Lakewood generally votes republican and on a state and national level the vaad's endorsement is of no significance and even locally the Vaad's power has weakened. In the Presidential elections Over 75% of the Lakewood vote went for Trump making it the Trumpiest town in NJ. The Vaad endorsed Corzine over Chrstie in the first term, but Lakewood voted overwhelmingly for Christie. The Vaad may pull a Route 9 surprise like they did with Corzine promising $100 million dollars to "widen the Nine" if he wins, but this time even that would be a hard sell.

Patch-LAKEWOOD, NJ - Four vehicles parked behind the Northern Resource Center on Fourth Street were destroyed by fire in the early morning hours on Oct. 14, a spokesman for the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office said. The fire apparently began with a cigarette in a privately-owned vehicle, said Al Della Fave. Investigation revealed that a woman had been smoking in the vehicle, put the cigarette in the ash tray, then fell asleep, he said. "She awoke to find smoke and a small fire in the area of the ash tray in the vehicle," Della Fave said. "She attempted to put the fire out, but was unable to. At this time she notified the Lakewood Police Department." Other vehicles damaged included two Meals on Wheels vehicles and one owned by Gelbstein's Bakery, he said.
This is Route 70 in Lakewood, NJ, which we live just off of. It is a pretty busy highway. Someone got killed 2 miles down from here on Tuesday. Today we saw this while we were sitting in front of our house after grocery shopping. They were lifting the strollers over the median and vehicles were zooming past and blaring their horns! Ten minutes earlier and one of those zooming cars would have been mine.
Hamodia- By Mordechai Wincorn In the coming weeks, a group of yungeleit from Beth Medrash Govoha will be leaving Lakewood to establish a new kollel in Berlin, Germany, with the goal of infusing the vibrant and growing kehillah that has developed there with an increased ruach haTorah. The group of six kollel members will be led by Rabbi Yaakov Baum, who saw the challenge as a unique opportunity.

“There’s a lot that we take for granted living in Lakewood or any center of the frum world. For families that grew up in those worlds, it’s a chance to show a community what it means to be a ben Torah or a product of Bais Yaakov,” he said. “It goes far beyond learning and shiurim. It’s a way for us to showcase what a Torahdig home looks like and to make that concept part of the spectrum of Berlin’s beautiful kehillah.” Rabbi Baum is originally from Detroit and is a son-in-law of Harav Shalom Kamenetsky. Until taking his present position in Berlin, he was a Rosh Chaburah in Beth Medrash Govoha, where he has studied for several years.
