Lakewood Launches 'Chabad Hat' - Lakewood reaches out to Lubavitch. A popular hat store based in Lakewood, NJ, is introducing what they called "the first-ever foldable Chabad hat," promising to help chassidim and bochurim in their many travels.
See Video Below
 As Lubavitchers of all ages are strict about taking their black fedora along during both personal and business trips, storing the delicate felt hat has always been an issue. Whether traveling by car, train or plane, the hats tend to get crushed by a heavy suitcase or other items. On flights, where airlines limit the amount of carry-on luggage a traveler can bring, the hat box becomes a burden that many would love to do without. Now, Simchy Zuckerman, a young entrepreneur and proprietor of the ThatHat store, says he had come up with a solution. His company designed a hat that he says is an "extremely light-weight, rabbit-felt hat that can be folded and placed in a suitcase or even your pocket, and will not leave a single crease." In describing how he came up with the idea, Zuckerman explained that while the concept of a foldable hat is not his original idea, "There was no foldable hat available for the Yeshiva or Chabad crowd." "I incorporated the idea and manufactured something that is comfortable, stylish, and most of most of all, looks no different than the average black hat," he says. He says the new hat, which is produced exclusively for ThatHat at a plant in Italy, is perfect for travelers and Bar Mitzvah-aged children because of its smaller brim size, it can last for many years.

Shidduchim: “Balabatish,” “Heimish,” and “Yeshivish.” explained by Lakewood Shadchanim

A Report on the Zichron Mattel Keren Chasanim event in Lakewood 
from the 5 Towns Jewish Times by Mr. Larry Gordon

PD Roth and Yoeli Steinberg
5tjt - The event took place in the epicenter of what can conceivably be referred to as the shidduch headquarters, if there is such a thing. It was last week in Lakewood, New Jersey, at Beis Medrash Govoha, and the annual event billed as Keren HaChasanim was under way. It is a wonderful experience. I traveled to Lakewood after work last Tuesday night with Yoeli Steinberg, the CEO of the Gourmet Glatt stores.

Over the previous Shabbos, he suggested that I accompany him to Lakewood, and though the Lakewood culture, so to speak, is really not part of my purview or usual domain, I agreed because it would be a new experience and possibly—as you can see—something I could expound upon that would end up in our newspaper and on our website, as well as posted on our other digital outlets.

Lakewood is more than just a city deep in the state of New Jersey. Lakewood is one of the leading yeshiva centers in the world, a bastion of scholarship and a beacon of the light of Torah to the world. But Lakewood is also a city made up of diverse people within both the similar but simultaneously different parts of the Jewish community. That dichotomy is more pronounced when it comes to the matter of making matches between the young men and women. While shidduchim thankfully occur every day, there is a still a crisis of sorts that looms large.

So let me first tell you about the wonderful event we attended last week that is somewhat unique and also inspiring before I get bogged down in the discussion of other issues.

The dinner, which was sponsored by Gourmet Glatt of Lakewood, featured the participation of hundreds of young men who were there to ostensibly pledge their support for one another by committing to donate $300 from the gifts accrued at their own weddings, once they take place. Building this type of internal charitable mechanism results in young men who require assistance in preparing for their own weddings receiving a stipend of $3,000 each.

So I am introduced to the “Lakewood shadchanim,” the men who make it happen in that community. They are headed up by the personable Meir Levy. When I asked Meir straightforwardly how many shidduchim he has engineered, he quickly responded “328.” But that was last week so the number might have increased.

No, not that freezing, not the snow or cold weather but the door to the Lakewood freezer will open as Tu Bshvat is the unofficial day when new Bochurim start the parsha of shidduchim. The official deadline for the takana is Rosh chodesh Adar, but the dating starts a bit early. Hatzlacha to all the bochurim in the parsha may they find their zivug and build a bayis Neeman Byisrael.

BOE To Reduce the Cost of Legal Services after Audit

The BOE will hold a public meeting Tomorrow Wed January 31, 2018.
An Audit on the BOE Budget of 2016-2017 made several recommendations

-Legal Services: it said the district exceeds 130% of the statewide average for legal costs and  recommends to implement specific internal controls for the reduction of costs or to provide evidence that such procedures would not result in a reduction of costs. The Board will vote on a resolution acknowledging it 
See resolution below below

-Food service 
Finding - The audit indicated the fund exceeded three months average expenditures  by $1,458,626 
Recommendation-  to reduce the net cash resources of the food service fund.

-Application for State School Aid revealed the following (CAFR Finding 2017-005): On-Roll • Student counts on the ASSA were not in agreement with supporting work papers provided for audit. • Certain students were not able to be verified to class registers provided for audit. 

 Resolution to recognize cost of legal services exceeded statewide average:
The Board recognizes that the cost of Legal Services for the 2016-2017 school year exceeded the statewide average per pupil amount as determined by the annual audit and as reported in the Taxpayer’s Guide to Education Spending. Furthermore, the Board is committed to reducing those costs to no more than 130% of the statewide average per pupil amount and to accomplish this will continue to monitor those expenditures in accordance with the requirements of N.J.A.C. 6A:23A-5.2(a)(3).

Preparations for the Misameach midwinter event in Lakewood

Super Ads run again in Lakewood Media

Once again some of the Lakewood newspapers have published advertisements of special deals for Superbowl parties this coming Sunday. Its not the first time, as these ads were already running previous years but the ads have gotten much more brazen. While in previous years there was an attempt to hide and hint to it, that is no longer the case. The ads now scream Super Sunday specials listing finger food, buffalo wings for the big game. One store only called it "super specials" cleverly camouflaging their ad that went into all the papers. The issue is not about following sports but its about making it Kosher like its a Jewish event.
 A sign of the changing demographics of Lakewood. Years ago you couldn't get a Hashgacha if there was a seating area it was take out only, now you can advertise for the superbowl and be proud of it.

Earlier today he collapsed in his home, Hatzolah members administered CPR, he was niftar shortly after at the hospital He was originally from Monsey were he taught at yeshiva Tiferes Bachurim. He was a mispalel at Bais Shabsi in Lakewood and also arranged a daily Vasikin minyan. He was approximately 60 years old.
Levaya 9:30 PM At the Lakewood chapel on 7th Street. TNZBH

 MatzavIt is with great sadness that reports the passing of Rav Chaim Mordechai Kastel zt”l. He was 61 years old. Rav Kastel was an outstanding talmid chochom, who spent his life devoted to limud haTorah and harbotzas Hatorah. From the early morning hours, after davening vosikin, until the late hours of the night, Rav Kastel would sit in the bais medrash or his home and learn. For years, he served as a rebbi, including at Machon Tiferes Bachurim, the yeshiva of Rav Shamai Blobstein in Monsey, NY. Rav Kastel was a special person, with unique middos and an exalted level of avodas Hashem. 
Last year, Rav Kastel relocated from Monsey to Montana Drive in the Brookwood neighborhood of Jackson, NJ.

Petition Restarts Debate to Raise Speed Limit on GSP TO 75 mph

Local Media  are reporting on the debate to once again raise the speed limit on the GSP. Mr. Mendel Rosenfeld of Lakewood  started a online petition on  to raise the speed on the Garden State Parkway in NJ to 75 Mph.  There have been previous attempts to raise the speed limit. Read the report from CBS New York

A New Jersey man has started a petition to raise the speed limit on the Garden State Parkway.

Twenty years ago, the state bumped up the speed limit on parts of the Parkway from 55 mph to 65 mph.
Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon, R-Monmouth, tried unsuccessfully in the past to raise the speed limit to 75, citing traffic studies that claimed there would be fewer lane changes and therefore fewer accidents. But the movement never really picked up enough speed. Now, Lakewood resident Mendel Rosenfeld is revisiting the idea, starting a petition on to bump up the speed limit by 10 mph.

Updated Letter From American Roshei Yeshiva on גזירת גיוס בנות

Enough With the made up Tznius obsession

There is a phenomenon of publicizing made up letters to the editor addressing so called "tznius" concerns in certain media outlets. Editors love these letters as it increases readership and creates buzz. These made up letters usually dont harp on a certain Halacha of tznius that is lax but they focus on a made up chumrah or some extreme made up scenario. Not only do these letters insult the intelligence of the Lakewood community but it gives fodder to those who mock our way of life. In the age of social media they get picked up fast and go viral, it gives people their daily dose of  "a crazy thing out of Lakewood". These posts and letters are nothing more than click-bate  disguised by using tznius related content. Non of these made up chumras have rabbonim who signed off on them, and are a creation of someones obsession. There is no bigger lack of tznius than using our modest way of life by publicizing  made up tznius awareness for personal satisfaction. 
A lot has been said about those who are obsessed with concern for these issues. If there are serious issues about a lack in tznius, there are other time tested approaches in dealing with it.

Jersey’s new gov charts familiar course to Disaster

NYP- New Jersey’s new Democratic governor, Phil Murphy, wants to move his state back to the future — or, more accurately, to the past. The dismal past, that is, of such predecessors as Jim Florio, Jim McGreevey and Jon Corzine — who unleashed the fiscal woes that have left the Garden State’s economy in tatters and its taxes sky-high.

That’s the takeaway from Murphy’s inaugural address last week, with his vow to produce “the state that leads the nation in progressive policies” and a laundry list of hard-left priorities that surely thrilled the hearts of every Democratic activist and public-union leader in the house.

He promised pot legalization, a $15 minimum wage, “equal pay for equal work” laws, automatic and same-day voter registration, a new state Office of Immigrant Defensive Protection, action to make the rich “pay their fair share in taxes” and, of course, resolution to “stand our ground” resisting President Trump.

בס"ד, ערש"ק פר' בא תשע"ח

ידידיי ומכובדיי קוראי ומתענגי הגליון 'מעדני הפרשה' הע"י.
ידידי בעל 'בדחי רבנן' פתר לי קצת מהלחץ, כי דברי תורה שאני כותב זה בבחינת 'זה מה יש', כי אינני מלקט רק כותב מה שנתחדש לי, ועל כן אין ברירה רק לקרא מה שיש (למי שקורא), וגם אם זה משוחזר, אז בדברי תורה לא מזיק אם חוזרים פעם שניה, אך הבדיחות, הקהל לא מוותר ורוצה טרי טרי תנור ראשון, וזה מהווה בעיה. אז תיתי לו לבעל ה'בדחי' שמיקל מעלי את העול, ואני מקווה שמבין שנינו יצא משהו שיעלה חיוך על השפתיים כי זאת המטרה. אבל ודאי שירשה לי קצת להוסיף נופך על שלו. כתב ב'בדחי' ששאלו לחילוני אחד, אם יודע את 'עשרת המכות', ענה 'מעולם לא ראיתי את 'הסרט המכות',

Snow Accumulations possible Late Tonight

Updated: Ocean county expect to get less than New inch.
The NWS is forecasting some snow to hit the NJ coast.  A coating to 2 inches is expected allthough 2-4 is the reasonable worst-case scenario for Monmouth and Ocean counties.
The steady snow starts late tonight and lasts through tomorrow am NW of NYC. N&W expect a general 2-5 inches but once you get to NW NJ/ near I84 expect 3-6+. 
So the further you away from the coast the better chance of seeing snow accumulation.

Mad Rush at Lakewood Stores Ahead of Storm

It looks like Erev Yom Tov as shoppers are packing the grocery stores stocking up on food for Shabbos before the storm hits.

-Gourmet Glatt is no longer taking delivery orders for today.
-NWS upped snow estimate 6-8 inches for Ocean county.

-Lakewood weatherman predicts 8-14 inches in the town.

-LFD: keep Fire Hydrants clear of snow
Due to the impending snow storm, the Lakewood Board of Fire Commissioners in
conjunction with Fire Chief Mike D’Elia Jr. and the members of the Lakewood
Fire Department, remind residents to refrain from shoveling or plowing snow on
top of or in close proximity to fire hydrants.
Residents are urged to keep the fire hydrants in their neighborhood clear of snow and debris. Winter storms can often hide fire hydrants under a mountain of snow making them impossible to find quickly.
