Lakewood Roshei Yeshiva Reinstate Takana not to Open schools until all girls are Placed

With a few days before girls High schools open and 10 girls still left without a school, the Lakewood Roshei yeshiva have instructed all girls high schools not to open the 9th grade classes before all girl are accepted and have were to go. This year there has been much publicity about this issue and the decision has been made to take a tougher approach in settling it before school begins. A few years ago there were 9 girls who were out of school and got accepted a few weeks before chanuka. This time around they are hopeful that it will all be resolved before the first day of school.

NJ Gas Tax will rise 4.3 cents a Gallon this Fall

New Jersey's gas will rise another 4.3 cents per gallon on Oct. 1, Gov. Phil Murphy's administration announced Thursday. This latest hike comes just two years after motorists were stung with a 23-cent-per gallon increase. It previously was unchanged since 1988.
The 4.3-cent increase brings the total state taxes to 41.4 cents on each gallon of motor fuels pumped in New Jersey, and 48.4 cents on each gallon of diesel. (

Yaffed Plans to Bring Campaign to Lakewood and New Jersey

Yaffed, the organization that is making trouble for Yeshivas and private schools in New York is setting its sight on Lakewood and other private schools and  Yeshivos in New Jersey. They want the state to regulate the secular education curriculum taught in private schools. Most yeshivas in Lakewood are already accredited with the state but they have an agenda and ax to grind with the Orthodox community. In an interview with APP editorial board they asked about Lakewood.

 Will moster be bringing his campaign to Lakewood? Yes, he says. He has already had contact with Orthodox and non-Orthodox residents alike. But for now, he wants to focus on New York. Last week, city education officials say their investigation into whether Hasidic schools were complying with the state’s “substantially equivalent” standard for non-public schools was being hindered by the refusal of some schools to allow investigators to enter the schools or to provide more than a basic outline of the curriculum. Moster believes he eventually will prevail. And when he does, he will turn his attention to New Jersey. Gov. Phil Murphy and the Legislature should be prepared. State standards

Tight Senate Race in NJ, Hugin closing the Gap

CBS- For months, Republican Senate candidate Bob Hugin has assailed Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez in TV ads, calling the two-term incumbent corrupt because of now-dismissed federal corruption charges, whittling down the incumbent's double-digit lead in the polls to single digits only a six point edge.

Now, with less than three months until voters go to the polls in Democratic-leaning New Jersey, where the Senate race is at the top of the ticket, Menendez is unleashing his own TV advertising fusillade, with two new 30-second spots this week criticizing the wealthy former pharmaceutical executive as greedy.

Tidbits for this weeks Maftir and Haftorah

Have Kavana for Zechiras Amalek
This week the maftir  Parshas Ki Seitzei is about Zechiras Amalek what we read yearly on Parshas Zachor. The mitzva is to remember about it once a year. Since  this coming year is a leap year it will be 13 months from last Shabbos zachor to the coming parshas Zachor. The Chasam Sofer explains that the annual reading suffices. The reason for this is that human nature of forgetting after a year does not depend solely on the elapsed time, but even on the passage of the seasonal events that pass us by yearly.
Nevertheless, The Maharam Schick (Mitzvos, no. 604) writes that the Chasam Sofer himself  ordered his disciples on leap years to have intention to fulfill the mitzvah of remembering Amalek with the torah reading of Ki Teitzei. This ensures that a twelve-month period will not elapse without a reading of the chapter.

As for the Haftorah we will read 2 of them first רני עקרה which is the 5th Nechama followed by  עניה סוערה. Since we skipped  עניה סוערה it on shabos Rosh Chodesh Elul we make up for it this week. Its important to not skip any of the seven haftoras of Nechama.

There won't be a 5-cent tax on plastic and paper shopping bags after Gov. Phil Murphy takes his veto pen to the legislation, paving the way for an outright ban of plastic bags and straws. A spokeswoman for Murphy's office said the governor was expected to veto the bill in the coming days.
Although the law was aimed at reducing plastic waste, environmental groups opposed the law because it did not go far enough. Several counties and municipalities already have moved to ban

At the levayah, held at the Yeshivah of Staten Island, Rav Reuven spoke of his late Rebbetzin’s great dedication in her essential role in enabling his own growth and decades of harbotzas haTorah.
“She supported me … she was mechazek me and took care of the whole olam hazeh part of my life,” he said.

With a commanding and regal presence, joined with exceptional intelligence and wit, Rebbetzin Feinstein’s dynamic personality propelled her to be one of the pillars upon which her husband’s yeshivah stood, and to be among the most trusted and loyal assistants to her revered father-in-law, Harav Moshe Feinstein, zt”l. At the same, she was a highly respected educator for many years in New York City’s Public School system and later in several mosdos haTorah.

Poll: Overwhelming Support for Trump Among Orthodox Jews

This poll reflects Lakewood's support for Trump at 90%

In the first known effort of its kind, Ami Magazine commissioned a poll of Orthodox Jews in the tristate area about their views on President Trump’s performance. The pollsters surveyed 263 people over two weeks and asked them four questions.

The strong support for Trump in the Orthodox community was evidenced by the finding that 91% of participants gave a “Satisfactory” or “Very Satisfactory” review to the president, and a total of 82% would vote for him again in 2020. (While not directly comparable, Rasmussen’s daily tracking poll for July 30 showed a 47% approval rating among the general public.)

Jackson BOE To Bus Lakewood students

The A Jackson Board of ed sent letters to parents of children enrolled in Lakewood schools and eligible for busing, that they will be busing them instead of giving aid in Lieu for their own transportation. This is great news to parents who were car pooling making multiple pick ups and drop offs. Jackson BOE has its own fleet of school buses that will transport the students. Smaller schools that are located near each other will combine students on the same bus. by law any student who is eligible received a check of $1000 as aid in lieu but the parents had to arrange their own transportation or the LSTA serviced some of the stops at the Jackson Lakewood border. This will also potentially free up more routes for the LSTA and can potentially reduce the time students sit on the bus. The measure is also expected to be a cost savings to the township.
