In response to viral Photo of Crawling Baby, Don't shame parents

The photo went viral and covered in the national media. A motorist driving on Joe Parker rd in Lakewood last Saturday noticed a baby crawling in middle of the road. He stopped traffic and also took a photo which went viral. A neighbor who also saw the baby  picked her up and brought her back home.  It turns out a sibling mistakenly left a side door open and the baby got out without the family realizing
Columnist Mark Di Ionno of NJ.com wrote an article  in response to the social media firestorm and those who are quick to judge, why we should not shame the parents.

NJ. com - Why we shouldn't shame the parents of the Lakewood baby crawling in the road

By Mark Di Ionno

Ah, nothing like a baby crawling in the street to bring out the daggers.

What kind of parent lets that happen?

What kind of guy takes a picture?

And because it's Lakewood, you know the rest.

Erev sukkos, a busy day for men

(Submitted via comment)
Talk about Erev Pesach the pressure of getting ready for the Seder, making sure there is no chometz, turning over the kitchen, cooking the zeroa, making charoses etc. Men usually have easy chores when it comes to Erev Pesach its the Nashim tzidkaniyos that are the ones knocked out when we sit by the seder.
Its on Erev Sukkos that the men get to feel a bit what it is for the women on Erev Pesach. Talk about the stress of getting the sukkah up, making sure its sturdy, adding 2 new panels, last minute runs to the local hardware store- a screw and bolt here, a light fixture, oops need to run back for an adapter since its 3 prongs, Setting the shabbos clock, putting up the decorations. Then its back to the store for another 6x4 mat for the schach and a fold-able cot for the son in law who sleeps in the sukkah.

Mahwah Settles Discrimination Lawsuit

“We commend Attorney General Grewal for standing up for religious freedom, and congratulate them on their settlement,” said Buchweitz. “The people of the Bergen Rockland Eruv Association have been enjoying religious freedom for over a year now in part because of the great efforts of people like the New Jersey Attorney General.”

Hamodia - Mahwah Township, New Jersey, reached a settlement agreement with the state resolving a lawsuit related to two ordinances that were alleged to be motivated by anti-Semitism, New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal announced Monday. One of the ordinances had banned non-residents from using Mahwah’s public parks, and the other banned the posting of eruv lechis – plastic strips on utility poles, within the municipality.

I Harold (hershel) Herskowitz have no connection to this website or its content.

Once again today I received a call from someone asking me if i can remove something from my website. The website people are referring to is usually Hefkervelt. I usually dont care when I get such a call. I explain to the person that I not only have no control over Hefkervelt, I dont even know who runs it. I like anyone else submit my articles or requests in the comment box on a random post. If it is something I want posted or announced I respectfully ask the website owner to do it. I am very often edited and censored in what I write. I appreciate the owner for allowing me to tell his readers things I feel are important. He even allows me to announce special sales in my store. I appreciate that he has a website that is not under the control of people trying to hurt our town. I do not agree with much of his politics, but I respect his opinion.
Now to get to the point. Today I received a request from a very respected member of our community

Erev Yom Kippur 15 Girls still Not in School

It's Erev Yom Kippur 5779  in Lakewood and there are still girls out of school.
15 elementary girls waiting and a few girls still out of high school. Parents and children are heading into sukkos not knowing what will be. Some of those who were supposed to work on placement and deal with the issue went away for the yomim tovim and there  is no movement.

Vaad Machanecha Kadosh formed in Lakewood to Increase Kedusha

A New VAAD has formed in Lakewood to increase Kedusha and awareness in areas of Advertising, store front images, and setting up proper mechitzas at simcha halls. The vaaad is replicating a similar movement that began in Toronto and Belgium. Members of the vaad will approach local businesses that display storefront images advertising that are not in keeping with the spirit of the Torah. Its about educating the public and bringing awareness to store owners. Of the  items that need chizuk and the Vaad plans to work on are, Dress codes for  workers and employees where they are needed,  ensure proper mechitzos at simcha halls, posters and advertisements with inappropriate pictures. The Vaad is guided by Rabbonim and Roshei Yeshiva of Lakewood. A article in TVOL a member says the Vaad is not here to address personal tznius standards, shaitels, internet usage, smartphones within the frum community. The vaad is here to improve community standards regarding public less known concerns. send suggestions to mkadosh@gmail.com

Tzedaka Priorities

                                    ותשובה ותפילה וצדקה מעבירין את רוע הגזירה
          To Whom Do We Give Tzedakah and Who Comes Before Whom?

Aseres Yemei Teshhuva between  Rosh hashana and yom kippur when many tzedaka requests are made by  Mosdos, Yeshivos individuals and organizations asking for donations as klal yisrael is in a giving mode of tzedaka during this time. we are bombarded by Tzedaka letters in the mail, robo calls, telemarketers soliciting donations, emails, a meshulach knocking at your door or approaching you in shul. Some have family obligations to support a relative.    

If one can afford to give to all that would be wonderful, however not everyone is capable of that.  The question is is whom do I have to give

According to Halacha there are priorities in who to give tzedaka to first. Please discuss this with your Local Rabbi as there are differences of opinions. 
Some Poskim rule that Hachzokas hatorah is the highest form of giving tzedaka.  categories in giving based on the shulchan aruch Yore Deah: The Laws of Tzedakah siman 251

Category 1: Captives, prisoners and matters of life and death- pikuach nefesh
Category 2: Very close relatives

Prince Edward, youngest of Queen Elizabeth II's children, and tenth in line to the throne will be in Lakewood today. He is scheduled to play a centuries-old form of tennis Thursday at Georgian Court University. The sport is played in an enclosed court with cork-based balls that are heavier and less bouncy than modern lawn tennis balls. Rackets are shorter than lawn tennis rackets and the rules of the game are more complex than the modern version. The prince is participating in a nine-day tour of the United States court tennis courts as part of an effort to raise support for his father Prince Philip's International Award program. The court Tennis court at GCU is the second to oldest in the USA built in 1899. APP


Judy Franco: No Media coverage on Newark welfare fraud
NJ 101.5 - A Newark family that managed a local convenience store is accused of taking thousands of unearned dollars through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) by exchanging $5 million in benefits for cash.
"I’m pretty sure this story wont be covered with as much unabashed glee as it would be if there were Lakewood Jews involved, so I thought it was important to let you know"... many, many, many people from all walks of life from all races, religions, and ethnic groups steal from the welfare system every single day. I thought I’d let you know. If it weren’t so easy to defraud welfare, no one would.

Why I’m Taking Control of My Family’s Health Care by Joining a Health Share

 by Victoria Dwek posted at Betweencarpools.com

Now, there’s finally an answer for the health insurance frustration we all endure. United Refuah HealthShare is the exciting alternative for Jewish families
 In my house, like in any other, there are certain things my husband takes care of, and certain things I take care of. The bills, thank G-d, are in his court. Towards the end of each year, though, when it comes time to decide whether we’ll be staying on our current insurance plan or switching to a new one, it’s up to me to do the research, analyze the fine print, and decide which plan makes the most sense for us. Once I finish my research, I present the information to my husband, who gives me his go ahead to sign us up, trusting that I know our family’s health care needs and can determine what gives us the best value and cost efficiency.

Florence is gradually strengthening with max winds of 70 mph, Rapid intensification expected Sun-Mon. Florence is forecast to be a dangerous major hurricane near the Southeast coast by late next week.

Hurricane Florence may Threaten East Coast

When will you put up your sukka? Hurricane Florence is 1000 miles out in the Atlantic but there is a chance that Florence could become a big issue in just over a week. A group of model simulations depicting possible tracks have begun to show the possibility of East Coast impacts  — especially near the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic coasts. Group of simulations from American and European  computer models from Wednesday night.
It’s important to keep in mind, however, that there is an equal shot of Florence passing far enough offshore that the United States sees nothing more than sunshine and
