Fine yidden are moving to Lakewood in droves from Brooklyn & beyond, mainly due to the more affordable housing market.
BEWARE: Be sure to find a school for your kids before joining our wonderful community. The schools in Lakewood a PACKED! ken”h. The local residents are having a hard time finding a school, k”v a newcomer. As a longtime Lakewood resident I had a very hard time getting my kids in due to the shortage of space. I can easily see someone feeling terrible after being rejected time & again even though it’s not usually personal. Please don’t even considering moving here without a guaranteed place in a local school.
“It never once occurred to us that finding a school for our kids could prove to be a challenge.
We couldn’t have been more wrong.”
From a new Lakewood resident.
Editor’s Note: You can always open up a school if you move to Lakewood. There is no reason to disparage a whole town because some people had difficulty getting into school.
WEARING A HAT AND JACKET
I am writing this because I am overcome by this terrible trend hitting bnei Torah and Rebbiem, Not that long ago all yungerleit and rabbeim had this inborn shtultz to never walk in the streets without a hat and jacket, just like a soldier in the army has to wear his uniform at all times when he is on duty or else he will get court marshalled, so too, yungerliet and rabbeim who are on duty 24/7- 365 should have to wear their hats and jackets whenever they step out into the street.
Where has our kavod HaTorah fallen to????
Editor’s Note: Whoever said that wearing a hat and jacket is Kavod HaTorah? If you look at old pictures, the Bnei Torah wore caps! It definitely is a nice thing to wear a hat and jacket, but to put down those who don’t seems a bit unfair.
I thought I’d share a dating story with you. A guy was going to get engaged to this girl but he was a bit of a jokester so he says, “I have to ask you a serious question.” The girl got all nervous, like what does he want and he’s like ok………when you brush your teeth, do you squeeze the toothpaste from the bottom or the middle of the tube?” She answered without missing a beat, ” I don’t brush my teeth.” He cracked up and proposed on the spot.
Bochur in BMG
Editor’s Note: This story has left me with bad breath. I guess I will have to brush up on my knowledge of up to date proposals.
Did you hear the news?
This morning (11 Av) a stone fell out of the Kotel in the “Egalitarian” section of the kotel.
There is a video of the incident around the news media.
Editor’s Note: The makom hamikdash defends itself. It cannot people who go against the Torah.
Hit and Run
After the hit-n-run accident that appears intentional we still hear nothing from the NYPD as far aa an investigation goes. If this would have been a Jew mowing down a minority things would definitely have been different. Shame on 66 PCT.
A Jew in Boro Park
Editor’s Note: This is a case of the police trying to run away from the facts and just trying to hit on us that it is not a bias case.
