Purim News Briefs Lakewood 5778

More Supermarkets coming to Lakewood

National Supermarket chains from across the US will be opening branches in Lakewood, NJ. Following the success of of kosher markets popping up all over, it only makes sense to follow suit and open stores in the strong Lakewood Kosher food market. A List of those who plan to open; Albertsons, Ralphs, Path mark, ShopRite, Trader Joes, Wegmans, kroger, Whole Foods, and kosher markets from Israel, Europe and beyond.

Anti Eruv Group teams up with Local Rabbonim

Those opposed to an Eruv in several  NJ towns have come up with a idea to team up with Local Rabbis in the Lakewood area  in an attempt to use halacha to stop building Eruvin.  At the initial meeting they had a hard time pronouncing words and understanding the concepts of Gud Asik, and Mefulash, but they will try whatever it takes. Hey, its strange bedfellows but by partnering with the Rabbonim they hope to have a stronger case. If a Rav from Brooklyn cant make an Eruv in Lakewood they hope to do the same for their communities.

New Takkanos proposed for Parlor Meetings

Askanim are floating the idea of new Takanos for Parlor meetings and other fundraising events requiring Mosdos to have a change in the menu. Its very not bakovodig to schlep people to an event and not serve them properly. Sponge cake, Seltzer and cookies has long fallen by the wayside. There should be a minimum requirement for: 3-4 hot dishes, preferably a 7 course meal (not in the 9 days) Sushi rolled on the spot, Wine tasting and live music is a must. Optional choice of cigar rolling or a Hookka bar. To enforce the new rules the Rabbonim and Roshei Yeshiva will not attend unless these new guidelines are strictly met and enforced.

Breathalyzers installed at Chasuna halls

Wedding halls in Lakewood will now install a breathalyzer near the exits making sure everyone gets home safely. This will be implemented in response to recent incidents were wedding guests have had a L'chaim too many. This is a pilot program, if successful it will soon be mandatory for bar Mitzvas and Fundraising events.

Life size standees of politicians go up in town square

Its very frustrating when you talk to someone but they dont respond to you. That is the feeling you get when attending meetings at the Lakewood town hall. As one resident said, we come to the meetings but we feel like we talk to the wall, its a one way conversation the members just look and bob their heads but dont talk back. Someone came up with the idea instead of going to the meetings  on their time to see the puppets, why not just yell at the life size figures of the politicians on our own time. You wont get cut off and can talk for more than 5 minutes.


Gezira or no Gezeira

while the debate continues is there or isn't there a Geziras Giyus one need to look no further than the Megillah. The Nes of Purim is that Mordechai  was able to convince Klal Yisrael that there actually is a Gezeira even to those who were skeptic or in denial.

Talk on lifting the Stadium ban

Officials and representatives of the ball club met to discuss how to increase attendance from the local community. One idea came out that its about time the ban be lifted. lakewood is no longer a shtut, its a metropolis a mosaic of many cultures. The Chasidim moving in have been going to stadiums for asifos and other gatherings there is no reason we should deny them that privilege. Also Lakewood has the first Movie theater with Kosher food, a electronic Billboard with Hebrew words, the time is ripe to let the olam enjoy baseballs past time. Arrangements will be made for those living in the vicinity to prepay and walk over for shabbos games.

Name change proposed

As the community continues to expand beyond its borders with the influx of Brooklyn residents a petition was sent out by the Vaad and Lakewood Neighbors asking for ideas to rename the area. some of the submissions: Palm Tree south, Zalis' south, Satu Marie on the Lake, Chaim's River, Jackobs son, Beigel hole, the Groiyseh apple, The Vaad was leaning to the Groiseh apple name as it resembled most to Bad apples. 

Exclusive First report Breaking News

A Lakewood resident was driving on the Garden State Parkway near exit 109 and saw a Deer on the side of the road. In another developing story a Lakewood resident ate breakfast in Toms River.

Construction Begins to Install Traffic Signal at Pine and MLK Intersection

Crews began construction to install s traffic light at the intersection of Pine Street and Martin Luther King Drive in Lakewood. The busy corner currently has a 3 way stop sign but traffic on Pine street is still backed up sometimes to Albert on the East and Rt 9 to the west.
 For years, Lakewood residents begged town officials to install a traffic light at the busy corner but they were ignored and stonewalled. Deputy Mayor said that once Vine street opens it will clear the alleviate the traffic at that intersection and no need for a light. So far no new through streets were added, Arlington is blocked off, and motorists have no options to go North- South besides MLK, or avenue of the states. Anyone going to the 9 from Forest Park, Marc, Newberry, Treeside, PR village, Somerset Walk or Albert, goes down pine st.

There once was a temporary light put up for a few weeks but the timing was not  set right and cars on MLK were backed up to John street. Hopefully now the traffic light will be set differently and ease some of the congestion improving traffic flow in the area.

Forecast: Rain Expected on Purim Day

Which genius decided to close the West Gate entrance the whole Friday. This is insane traffic for hours children and not being picked up. Total disregard for the safety and well-being of the residents.

Amalek Kugel for Shabbos Parshas Zachor

Amalek’s Kugel is an acronym for four kugels which together form the word Amalek.

A for apple or epel (the ayin)

M for Mehl, or Flour (the mem)

L for lukshen or noodles (the lamed)

K for kartofel(potatoes) the kuf.


In Europe and in other places Chassidim serve these four kugels on the Shabbos when Parshas Zachor is read and then they eat them thereby symbolically annihilating Amalek by eating him all up.

Jackson Leaks: A social media controversy over a speed bus was flipped on its head by new video evidence.

Jackson Leaks: Two Sides Every Story


A recent video on Facebook sought to bring attention to a speeding bus on Villanova Drive and shows the vehicle swerving in the direction of the camera while driving past. The poster alleged that the driver had intentionally changed course towards him as a means of intimidation. A followup showed the driver receiving a ticket the next day for speeding.

This seemed like the end of the story, until the Lakewood Scoop shed new light on the incident with a post containing dash-cam videos from the bus company. This new video shows that in addition to the original poster standing behind a tree on the side of the street, there is a second person, unseen in the original video, blocking part of the street. The bus was actually forced towards the curb (and the camera) to move away from this person in the street. It almost seems like a set-up designed to capture the original video.

Below are two police reports associated with this incident:
 
 The police were called to Villanova Drive around 3:00 PM on 2/15, the day after the first video, where a number of residents claimed that a speed bus had swerved towards them, a claim which would seem to be contradicted by the dash-cam video. The officer then stayed in the area, giving a citation to the driver when he passed later.

Lakewood tops List of Towns where People spend Most Income on Rent

In a list of 25 Towns in NJ, Lakewood in Ocean County is number 1 where 12,241 renter households spend 43.3% of their income on rent.

 NJ Advance Media analyzed U.S. Census data to determine in which New Jersey towns renters spend the largest percentage of their household income on rent, or where the rent burden is highest.

 “In New Jersey, residents spend a median of 31.8 percent of their household income on rent, the seventh highest in the nation.” This does not mean that rents are higher in these towns than other places.  The list of 25 towns is made up of towns where the rent is high and renter households do not make enough income to have more than 65% of their income left over to pay for necessities and other important expenses.

The top five towns in New Jersey where renters spend the highest percentage of their income on rent are:

Camps close Registration While Kids Still have No School for Next Year

Mid February, the local summer camps are in full registration mode for the summer of 2018. Some camps already closed registration and there are no slots left. The local papers came out with their camp sections forcing all camps to open registration. Another pressure parents must face rushing to sign up their children before registration is full. The system of competing and chapping before yenem continues to plague us. What is more sad though is that many children are still not accepted into a school for the upcoming year. How do these parents feel waiting daily for answers or hoping to get in somewhere while their neighbor is already enrolled in day camp. Yes camps need time to plan but it should not be before the school registration is complete with every child having a school to go to. 
Camps should open registration after Pesach.

Fiirst Yartzheit of Reb Yaakov Ytzchok Stern Z'TL

Today 5 Adar marks the first Yartzheit of R' Yaakov Yitzchok Stern a"h. He was niftar suddenly at the young age of 37 years old, but in his short life he was an accomplished Talmid Chochom. He was a beloved friend to many, a  Ben Aliya and yorei Shomayim whose avodas Hashem was pure and heartfelt, and who, together with his wife, was raising his children b’derech Yisroel saba.
  The mishpacha and friends held a Siyum Hashas and Yartzheit seuda last night לעילוי נשמתו. 
Below is a Hesped by the Admor M' Santov Lakewood where R' Yaakov Yitzchok would daven on shabbos.

What Is the New Law Regarding Giyus Habanos, and Why Has It Sparked Such a Commotion?

OP-ED: Agudas Bnei Torah of America posted on JBN

Did you know that religious girls are being drafted into the army?
Did you know that young girls are being put in jail?
Did you know that this past Tuesday, Feb 13 the Israeli Government enacted a law granting the IDF the final say in whether or not an applicant for a religious exemption is indeed “religious”?
Like many, you may have heard only vague reports or may be totally unaware. Please read this op-ed outlining the current deteriorating situation for our dear young girls living today in the Holy Land of Eretz Yisrael.

The Way it Was

In the early 1950’s the religious community in Eretz Yisroel was in an uproar over the issue of giyus habanos– compulsory conscription of women into the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF). The Chazon Ish, zatzal, and the other gedolim of the day waged a fierce battle to oppose the implementation of any program or law that would require religious young women to serve in the military in any capacity, including substituting military service with a compulsory term of sheirut leumi-National Service (which includes various branches of public services).

Lakewood Fire Budget Defeated

Around 400 people voted today in the Lakewood Fire Elections, the two commissioners ran unopposed.  The fire Budget asking for $1.3 million tax increase was voted down by the taxpayers  224-176.

When a budget is defeated State law requires the municipal government  to hold a public hearing on the budget and either approve it or cut the budget.  Last year the Lakewood township made a small reduction of $10,000 and passed the budget after taxpayers voted against it.



BDE

Matzav.com reports
It is with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the passing of Eliezer Zvi Biegelseisen z”l of Lakewood, he was nine years old.

Eliezer Zvi was a son of R’ Meir and Chava Esther Biegeleisen.

The levayah will be held at 10 p.m. at the Congregation Sons of Israel’s Holocaust Memorial Chapel, located at 613 Ramsey Street, off of East 7th Street, in Lakewood. The family will be sitting shivah at 1675 Hidden Lane.

Lakewood VAAD Silent on Fire Elections

 This motzei shabbos there will be elections at the LFD asking the public to spend more money for capital improvement projects. There was very little publicity about it so far. Last Year the Vaad involved itself in the fire elections endorsing a candidate and said  to vote down the budget.  The VAAD who claims to look out for the Tax payers and always issues statement for who and how to vote has not said a word this year prior to the 2018 fire elections which will increase taxes. The two commissioners are running unopposed, but why is vaad not recommending on how to vote o the budget, they usually do. It did meddle into the fire district elections for commissioner last year putting up a last minute candidate.

A simple answer is that the current commissioners were  endorsed previously by the vaad ,therefore the vaad must approve everything going on. Also, in a few months is primary election for township committee where Menashe Miller and Meir Lichtenstein are up for reelection the vaad rathr not bother the tzibbur now and cause voter fatigue, they rather prepare for the primary election battle which is expected to be a exciting campaign.

Parkland Rabbis Stand With Community Through Tragedy

Hamodia- The Florida school shooting that gripped the nation on Wednesday was especially traumatizing for the local Parkland community, a great number of whom are Jewish. As police revealed that 17 people had, sadly, been killed, it transpired that some of the victims were Jewish as well. In a conversation with Hamodia on Thursday, Rabbi Shuey Biston, outreach and programming director at Chabad of Parkland, recounted yesterday’s harrowing events.

“I got a phone call about the shooting shortly after it happened,” said Rabbi Biston. “Chabad of Parkland is actually the regional headquarters for Chabad of North Broward and South Palm Beach, and is located five minutes away from the school, so immediately upon receiving the call I hurried over to the school grounds, and I witnessed the emergency vehicles rushing to the scene.

NJ lawmakers Want to Reinstate the Individual Mandate on Obamacare

After President Trump Repealed he individual mandate on those who dont have health insurance to pay a yearly penalty, Democrat lawmakers at the NJ state Senate’s Commerce Committee approved the Democratic legislation, introduced earlier this week requiring a fee. The Bill would require every taxpayer in NJ to have health insurance or pay the tax. It still would have to be voted on by the assembly and legislature, Gov Murphy would sign it.


Read more at NJSpotlight

The bill (S-1877), the “New Jersey Health Insurance Market Preservation Act,” would require those who don’t have health insurance plans that meet certain minimum standards to pay a fee to the state. This penalty would be determined under calculations previously used in the ACA, based in part on the cost of an average bronze-level plan sold on New Jersey’s individual health insurance market.

Why are We Paying More for Fire Taxes if Township has a Surplus of Money

 Lakewood fire district has the largest proposed budget of all other towns at the Jersey shore at $6.3 million, a 33 percent increase over last year. The township of Lakewood had a surplus of 20 million dollars and it threw millions to the public schools, busing and other programs. The EMS and Police departments are all covered by the municipal budget Why cant the township cover the fire increase instead of Lakewood taxpayers having to pay an additional 1.5 Million dollars? In other towns the fire district is part of the municipal government.

By Law the fire district is a separate entity and has its own department but its not a fair system is not fair for the Lakewood taxpayers.

Back in December the Fire district had elections to include $1.3 million dollar spending in the proposed 2018 budget. Only 100 people in all of Lakewood voted to approve it. In a town of 150,000 residents all you need is a fraction to vote on a million dollar tax increase.
 The district called the result  overwhelming on its website:

The Lakewood Board of Fire Commissioners held a Special Meeting (Election) on December 5, 2017 from 2:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. at the Fire District Administrative Offices on 316 River
Avenue. The result of this Special Meeting (Election) was overwhelming approval by the voters to include four capital improvement projects in the 2018 Budget, which budget will ultimately be voted upon at the Fire District Election on February 17, 2018, by the legal voters within the
Township. 

Despite all the building and new construction the taxes only keep going up and up. Its time to think about incorporating the fire district and many other township commissions that each have its own director, lawyers, commissioners  drawing fat salaries bilking the hard working tax payers of lakewood.

Giyus Banos: Knesset Committee Approves New Regulations Permitting Review of IDF Exemptions for Religious Girls - גיוס בנות

        "אבל כבד בעולם היהודי: "פרעה לא גזר אלא על הזכרים והם גזרו אף על הנקבות
The Knesset Committee approved new regulations to be able to examine the "Ptur" of frum Religious girls and have the ability to revoke it based on their religious observance. See report in Hebrew at bottom

YERUSHALAYIM -Hamodia - Despite the firm stance of chareidi MKs, who cited the clear ruling of Gedolei Yisrael of previous generations that service by women in the IDF is “yehareg v’al yaavor,” the Joint Committee of the Foreign Affairs, Defense and Constitution and Justice committees on Tuesday approved new regulations to the women’s draft law, and the forming of a committee to examine girls who received an exemption on the basis of religious observance.

The MKs of UTJ and Jewish Home strongly criticized the formation of a committee that consists of a clear majority of secular members, and wondered if it could decide on the veracity of the religious declaration of the applicants.

According to the law passed in 1978, any girl who meets the religious criteria – that she doesn’t travel on Shabbos and keeps kosher – can seek an exemption from military service on religious grounds. It is inconceivable, said the MKs, that this will now need to be verified by a committee of non-religious representatives.

Trump Plans to Replace Food Stamps With Food Boxes

The Tomchei Shabbos Model may be replicated. How will they deal with kosher foods?

Trump pitches plan to replace food stamps with food boxes
From POLITICO -The Trump administration is proposing to save billions in the coming years by giving low-income families a box of government-picked, nonperishable foods every month instead of food stamps.

White House OMB Director Mick Mulvaney on Monday hailed the idea as one that kept up with the modern era, calling it a "Blue Apron-type program" — a nod to the high-end meal kit delivery company that had one of the worst stock debuts in 2017 and has struggled to hold onto customers. Mulvaney said the administration’s plan would not only save the government money, but also provide people with more nutritious food than they have now.

LAKEWOOD, NJ (Patch) — Amid the continuing flu epidemic, Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus in Lakewood is barring those under 18 from visiting patients in the hospital, a spokeswoman said. It's a move that's been made by a number of hospitals around the state, as health care officials look for ways to curtail the illness.
