Kol Korei Regarding Credit Unions

Hamodia.com By D. COHEN
Lakewood N.J. - There has been recent rising awareness that using credit unions presents a serious question regarding the issur d’Oraisa of ribbis.

A letter signed by Harav Hillel David, shlita, Rav of Khal Shaarei Torah; Harav Dovid Feinstein, shlita, Rosh Yeshivah, Yeshivas Tifereth Jerusalem Harav Shmuel Kamenetsky, shlita, Rosh Yeshivah, Yeshiva of Philadelphia; Harav Reuven Feinstein, shlita, Rosh Yeshivah, Yeshivas Staten Island and Harav Shlomo Miller, Rosh Kollel, Kollel Avreichim, Toronto states that one may not be part of or borrow from a credit union.

The letter ends off by saying that since there are possible heterim one should consult his Rav. A majority of today’s Poskim hold that at the very least it would be ideal to have a heter iska, with many saying it is a necessity. First Atlantic (the credit union which finances most Lakewood car loans) has been presented with several solutions which unfortunately were all rejected.

An Open Letter

AN OPEN LETTER FROM HERSHEL HERSKOWITZ:
Eight years ago I very innocently exercised my constitutional right  and ran for township committee.  I was full of ideas for a  brighter future for Lakewood and a better quality of life for all of its residents.  I even sought approval from an extremely high-ranking community leader before I decided to run, and he disingenuously gave me his blessing.  In truth, my declaration of candidacy apparently posed a threat to the status quo politicians and their behind-the-scenes "advisors," who had been manipulating and profiteering from their positions for years.  In order to suppress and silence me, these politicians and their "advisors" used mafia-style tactics, including not accepting my children into school.  This had the opposite effect; I saw

Lakewood Chaveirim Update on Traffic Today

Lakewood chaveirim: A special thank you to the many Chaveirim members who devoted time and energy in the cold early Tuesday morning(12/25), helping drop-off and pickup hours at schools run smoothly. Despite the thousands of cars, most locations that had substantial traffic in the past, proceeded without trouble.

Two areas are still posing a huge challenge, -Oak/Vine Area
Even though we were able to reduce the wait time substantially, that is still no comfort to anyone who was stuck in traffic. The volume of cars is simply greater than the infrastructure is capable of handling in such a short amount of time.  Even though we cannot make the traffic disappear, we keep trying to improve and come up with new solutions to help reduce the traffic pains in Lakewoo

Matzav.com- It is with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the passing of Rav Kalman Krohn zt”l. He was 71 years old. Rav Kalman battled illness for the last period, enduring immense yissurim with fortitude and bitachon. Rav Kalman was a tzaddik who devoted his life to Torah and avodas Hashem. Much of the chesed he performed was conducted under
 the radar, as he raised money for those in need without fanfare.

Rav Kalman was a powerful mashpiah, whose shmuessen and shiurim were compelling and penetrating, moving his listeners to raise their level of avodas Hashem, avodas hamiddos and limud haTorah.

Petition: Nominate Isaac Akerman to be Lakewood's Mayor for 2019

Petition to the Lakewood township committee:
                             Make Isaac Akerman Mayor Again  SIGN PETITION HERE
  The tradition in Lakewood has always been that the position of mayor revolves each year, with the dominating party in the Committee choosing a member of their own party for the Township's top position. Two years ago, the Republican-majority Committee broke from tradition and nominated Democrat Ray Coles as mayor. Last year again, they broke from tradition another way, and choose Coles to be mayor for a second consecutive year - an unheard of phenomenon in Lakewood's recent history. The nomination last year was apposed by two of the three Republicans on the Committee, but Miller's defection, together with Democrats Lichtenstein and Coles' vote, secured the position for Coles. (Coles' own vote shifted the majority in his favor. Had he been disqualified to vote for himself, his nomination would have never held up.)

Giyus Banos protest

A Chareidi girl from Netanya is in military prison for 10 days already, according to a report on 'Kol Berama' radio! The girl was arrested at Ben Gurion Int'l airport as she was with her mother on the way to a family simchah. Please daven for Rivkah bas Simchah. A large Hafgana is lanned tonight in Kikar shabbos

Arutz Sheva- An young haredi woman from Netanya has been detained in military prison for ten days for evading IDF service. According to Kol Bracha radio, the young woman was educated in Chabad institutions and now lives a haredi lifestyle. Her mother said the daughter was arrested at the airport on her way to Paris for a family celebration. "They put handcuffs on her and took her into custody, and told us she was evading recruitment." According to the mother, an incident occurred a few years ago involving one of her daughters that shook the family. Following the incident, her daughter was transferred to a boarding school and her spiritual level plunged. The daughter shared photos on Facebook in which she appears to be living a secular lifestyle and from which the army based its position that she is secular and therefore must enlist.

Update: OU Reports on Negotiations with NY Education Dept

Cross Currents  December 19, 2018

Teach NYS of the OU Confirms 3.5 Hour Daily Core Subject Requirement (Grades 7 and 8) In NYSED Enforcement Guidance (the units of study do not apply to grades 5 and 6) "We have been, and remain extremely concerned by state regulation of Yeshiva and day school curriculum."

To: Teach NYS Member Schools

On November 20th, 2018, the New York State Education Department (NYSED) issued its Substantial Equivalency Guidance regarding curriculum requirements for non-public schools. Since the issuance of this Guidance, TEACH NYS, a project of the Orthodox Union, has been working with our school partners, leadership and advocates in Albany to understand and begin to address these requirements and enforcement measures. Concurrently, we have been communicating with government officials and others in Albany to help them understand and address the myriad issues relating to the guidance.

In summary response to the questions our member schools are asking, there are two issues that we are prepared to report on now. First, with regard to high schools, NYSED’s Guidance provides that all registered high schools are already in compliance and have no further obligations. Virtually all of the high schools in the TEACH NYS network are registered with NYSED. Second, in response to our inquiries, NYSED provided written clarification that the mandatory units of daily secular study are not more than one per grade for core subjects (English, Math, Social Studies and Science). This translates to 3.5 required hours of required instruction per day (not counting physical education) for grades 7-8. We held off distributing this important information until we could confirm this clarification at senior levels of NYSED – which we received from multiple sources at NYSED yesterday.

Hamodia: Chinuch Crisis Update from the Front Lines

Hamodia.com By Rafael HoffmanTuesday, December 18, 2018 at 7:41 pm | י' טבת תשע"ט
A discussion with Rabbi Chaim Dovid Zwiebel about the ongoing chinuch crisis.

News of the revamped regulations for non-public schools has set off a wave of deep concern throughout the Orthodox community. Hamodia spoke with Rabbi Chaim Dovid Zwiebel, Executive Vice President of Agudath Israel of America, to give the public additional clarity as to how the issue has reached its present stage, what is being done, and what can be done.

How did this issue metamorphose from a lawsuit from a small group of malcontents about a limited number of yeshivos into changes so radical that even the Catholic schools felt the need to boycott?
The guidance that New York State’s Department of Education has now issued has totally shifted the focus of our efforts in the fight for Torah chinuch.
Until now we were more or less sparring with a phantom. A small group of disgruntled former yeshivah students formed an organization called [Young Advocates for Fair Education] YAFFED. They painted themselves as “survivors” of the darkness and backwardness of the chassidishe yeshivah system, and they embarked on a crusade to enlighten those still caught in the clutches of what they portrayed as an educational system from the dark ages. The media and many in the “progressive” political camp loved them. The ugly story they told played beautifully in the larger narrative of hatred and fear of Chassidim — and to an extent of all Orthodox Jews — that we unfortunately see more and more of.

 A fast day like today Asarah Bteves is usually a 12 hour fast elsewhere but in Antarctica some say they must fast a full 24 hours. The question is how is a "day" defined Is it solely based on sunrise and sunset, or should the definition of a polar "day" be consistent with the length of a day in the rest of the world?

Data Shows racial disparities in police use of force across New Jersey.

NJ Advance media Database provides hard evidence of racial disparities in police use of force across New Jersey.
Among the findings:

Black people are three times more likely to face some type of police force than whites.
In 68 cities and towns, black people were at least five times more likely to face force.  In Lakewood, they were an astounding 22 times more likely.  Lakewood Police Chief Gregory Meyer said he was surprised and concerned to see the numbers and planned to take action. Meyer, said he planned to talk to his captains and trainers about the data to see what could be changed. "We do a lot of diversity training here with our officers when they're new, because things are changing so quickly," Meyer said. "But if we're doing something poorly, we want to know about it."


Yeshivos face fines for not providing records of students' vaccination rates

News 12 Nine yeshivas in Rockland County are facing fines for not complying with an order put out by the Health Department regarding the measles outbreak. Several hearings are being held at the Pomona Health Complex between county lawyers and schools that failed to give health officials a list of students who are not fully vaccinated against the measles.

The county says nine private schools in Rockland are not in compliance. They face a penalty of $2,000 a day since Nov. 16, when the health commissioner issued the order.

OCHD Measles Update: Working on Eradication from the County

MEASLES UPDATE * AS OF DECEMBER 17, 2018 * 11:30 A.M.

The following is a summary from the Ocean County Health Department.
There are now 19 confirmed measles cases.
There are now 5 cases under investigation.

Ocean County Health Department Public Health Coordinator Daniel E. Regenye, cautions that the measles outbreak continues to generate reports of new potential exposure which must be immediately and thoroughly investigated. We must continue to be vigilant and to take all necessary precautions to avoid an escalation of this measles outbreak, and remind all medical personnel that measles is an immediately reportable disease.” We remain grateful for the efforts of community leaders and members of the public who have embraced and amplified the messaging from the Ocean County Health Department to limit any exponential worsening of this outbreak.”  “Our message now is to remain informed on the status of potential measles exposure, insure that one’s family is fully vaccinated and protected, and encourage others in the community to do likewise as we work towards the eventual eradication of measles in our County,” restated Regenye

Moetzes of Agudah calls for Yom Tefillah tomorrow Asarah B'Teves

The State of New York has published new guidelines to ensure that nonpublic schools, including Yeshivos and Bais Yaakovs, provide an education that is “substantially equivalent” to that of the public schools. What this means is that every single Cheider, Yeshiva Ketanah, Yeshiva Gedolah and Bais Yaakov, from elementary through high school, has to meet specific government standards about what they teach and how long they teach it for. The guidelines represent an unacceptable government intrusion into the autonomy of our mosdos. It should be up to the Vaad HaChinuch of each yeshiva, or the Moreh Hora’ah for the Kehillah with which that yeshiva is affiliated, to decide what our children learn.

In recognition of the seriousness of this challenge, the Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah are asking all shuls to be marbeh b’tfillah and amiras Tehillim at Minchah, this Tuesday, Asarah B’Teves.

May the zechus of the tefillas rabim help in averting this gezeirah.

WSJ: Roshei Yeshiva in Op Ed "Albany bureaucrats want to commandeer our curriculum. We won’t have it."

Opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal by By Rabbis Elya Brudny and Yisroel Reisman

Together the two of us have 70 years of experience in Jewish education. Yet nothing could have prepared us for what the New York State Education Department did last month. On Nov. 20, Commissioner MaryEllen Elia issued guidance empowering local school boards to evaluate private schools and to vote on our right to continue educating our students.

30 year Tax Abatements in Lakewood? Do they Apply?

This is what the NJ municipal government explains as a reason why an abatement between 5 and 30 years might be called for. Usually it is in order to redevelop a blighted crime ridden neighborhood. Not in order to make developers wealthier.

"Attracting commercial, residential and industrial development to areas most in need of redevelopment or rehabilitation is often difficult so municipalities are increasingly utilizing New Jersey’s Tax Abatement Programs, providing for Payments in Lieu of Taxes or “PILOTs” to help with community growth and progress in these areas. Under these PILOT programs, municipalities are authorized to grant developers exemptions from traditional property taxes for a set period of time to encourage them to make improvements to property, or to locate a project in a distressed or “blighted” area. Instead of property taxes, developers make an annual PILOT payment to the municipality. The

Township committee Meeting Recap : Spending tax payer Dollars

Video replay HERE
During the regular meeting the township passed 5 ordinances that gave Millions worth of  tax breaks and abatements on buildings and properties located in cedarbridge corporate park. Prior to the vote Committeeman Issac Akerman left and all ordinances were passed by only 3 members.

At public comment following each ordnance a resident questioned the committee why they are giving away these tax breaks which will put a burden on the tax payers claiming the mayor is doing as told by the VAAD. The Land of 200 acres at Cedarbridge  was given away for free by the township and developers sold off parcels for huge profits, why should they get an additional tax break while costing the taxpayers of Lakewood, he asked.  The mayor responded that these terms were set 20 years ago and is used as an incentive to draw businesses to the area pointing to the hundreds of people who now have jobs in theses offices.
However a lot has changed in 20 years and this area is prime real estate, the only ones who gain are the developers who sell the parcels at a higher value because they come with a 30 year tax break no one else gets these incentives. All this while Taxes in Lakewood have gone up this year and the BOE is projected to be 40 million in the hole,

Development Planned for Massachusetts And Cross streets

The Lakewood Shopper newspaper reports - On Tuesday December 11, 2018 the planning board will hold a hearing for a major site plan for a piece of land on a 15 acre property at the corner of Massachusetts avenue and Cross street.

Numerous schools in Lakewood have built faculty housing or student housing over the past few years under the campus ordnance.

   An interesting article, about An ancient, anonymous song for Shabbos Chanukah, Ichlu Mashmanim, appears in siddurim and is chanted in some communities. The whole composition sings the praises of food, meals, meat dishes, wine and miscellaneous culinary delights to be consumed on that Shabbos and the line ending each stanza goes: “A beis kur sell or lease; rent a beis kur for Shabbos Chanukah!” In his Responsa (137), Mahari of Bruna, a pupil of the Terumas HaDeshen, remarks that no Torah scholar could have written the song as a Chanukah meal is not defined as a se’udas mitzvah.

This Shabbos, an abundance of kedusha is coming our way. As with all such gifts, we must prepare properly for this present from above or we may miss the opportunity to seize the riches that can be ours.  Klal Yisroel will be celebrating the confluence of Shabbos, Rosh Chodesh and Chanukah, with the bonus of removing three Sifrei Torah from the Aron Kodesh for three independent readings. Not only should we be glowing with joy over this rare occurrence, but we should realize that this moment in every shul in the world represents an incredible eis ratzon – a time of Divine grace and acceptance – for all of us.

There is a minhag to give Chanukah gelt to your children and to the poor on the fifth night of Chanukah. The simple reason since the 5th night never falls out on shabbos. Another reason that the nasie of the 5th day is from shevet Shimon who will produce the Rebbeim to teach the children.

NJ Non public security bill passes Budget Committee

Agudath Israel welcomes the news that NJ Bill S3080, a bill to double nonpublic school security funding, passed unanimously in the Senate Budget Committee yesterday. The funding increase was Agudath Israel’s top legislative priority for this session and was the focus of an intense advocacy effort.

Currently, nonpublic schools receive $75 per student in security funding. S3080 and its companion Assembly bill will increase the funding to $150, bringing the per student funding closer to the amount received by public schools. The bill would mean an overall increase of $11.3 million for nonpublic students.

Lakewood Rabbonnim issue Letter about Eruvin

Due to the exponential growth of our city, it has become necessary to publicize certain principles concerning eiruvin.
1)  No Eiruv shall be made to include Route 9 under any circumstances.
2) We are displeased with the construction of an eiruv passing over the following streets, [as there are serious issues concerning the validity of constructing eiruvin on these streets]
Route 70, Route 88, Central Ave/ E veterans, County Line Rd, Cedarbridge Avenue, Squankum rd (north of County Line)
-There are areas which have no eiruv at all and  still there are those who carry there for various reasons, this is a real chilul shabbos R"L. Therefore it is imperative that one inform his guests about this matter

-Even in areas which have an eiruvit must be verified thati t is constructed professionally and a reliable hashgacha responsible for it as it is common for an eiruv to fall into neglect with no one realizing it

K’hal Zichron Yaakov, also known as “Rabbi Gissinger’s shul,” was founded in 1987 with a small group of families on “the other side of the lake.” Rabbi Gissinger’s goal was to perpetuate the ideals and lifestyle of his rebbe, Rav Yaakov Kamenetsky, zt’l. Rabbi Gissinger credits the kehilla’s success to its effort to fulfill the mission of “striving to daven, learn and interact with others in a manner consistent with Rav Yaakov’s teachings and personal example.”

The Drasha Addressed to Napoleon Bonaparte this weeks parsha

The Drasha Addressed to Napoleon Torah.org
Yosef found himself in the dungeon together with Pharaoh’s wine butler (Sar HaMashkim). He interpreted for him his dream: “The three clusters are three days. In another three days Pharaoh will lift up your head and will restore you to your post and you will place Pharaoh’s cup in his hand as was the former practice when you were his cupbearer.” [Bereshis 40: 12-13]
Yosef then added the following words: “If only you would think of me (ki im zechartani) with yourself when he benefits you, and you will do me a kindness, if you please, and mention me to Pharaoh, then you would get me out of this building.” [Beresis 40:14].

Can Non Vaccinated kids Return to School

It's been 22 days since the last confirmed case of measles  in Lakewood according to the Ocean county Board of health. Although there have been more cases confirmed as of yesterday, those patients had the measles from a few weeks ago and not so much in position to infect others. The official Board of health policy is  once 21 days pass the kids can return to school. The last confirmed case was Nov 6th.
Does this mean that non vaccinated children can now return to school?
Will schools allow them back?
