  1. Moshe it’s good to see you getting involved in politics.
    You have tremendous strength, and one day you can run for mayor, then we will all move to Tomes River.

  2. The residents of TOMS RIVER received a robo call “Paid by the Tax Payers of Toms River” stating that they should go look at http://www.thelakewoodscoop.com and see first hand that the JEWS have endorsed the Republican Nominee for 3rd Ward Louis Gallipoli.

    This was another tactic to insight fear and hatred from the Democratic Party. Not like the current republican party are welcoming Jews to TOMS RIVER – but its the best of both evils.

    The Democratic Party or Someone back the Democratic Party Ticket mailed a FREE news paper Titled the TOMS RIVER TRIBUNE with many articles to insight hatred.

    “Lakewood Money Flows to Republican Party”,” High Density Apartments Transforming North Dover ” claiming its the republicans fault that this area will become another Lakewood, PS These homes are being built for affordable housing
    (so lets make the democrats not look like liers and have all us ULTRA FANATIC (Moderated) ORTHODOX JEWS TAKE OVER)

    “Local Pizza Shop Closes Down” and explains the reason is due to demographics. (Real reason is another better pizza shop – not kosher-
    opened across the street)

    And then regarding The Toms River Police authoring a letter about the jewish holidays that we could call upon them and the ability to have a sukkah the news paper titled an article “Republicans Pandering for Orthodox Jewish Vote”

    This was all paid obviously by a democratic machine -interesting enough the postage was paid PRSRT STD, US POSTAGE, PHILA PA 191 Permit NO 6438.

    hope the DOJ and the AG investigate who is paying and behind the robo calls and print media to insight hatred against the orthodox community and use this as a tool against the Republican party that LOVES us so much…Read the blogs, social posts and you can not even imagine the hatred coming from all walks of life especially the minorities which is shocking as when they get mistreated they protest and riot but when its another ethnicity its OK – dont see any jews rioting or public protesting. and i am sure the level of crime being commited is just about zero.

  3. #4 – Were there Robo Calls? I didn’t get one. It’s disgusting if that is the case. Would the town be sued? Or the Dems? I just want to live a happy life and it’s been very difficult the last few months but I don’t want to pay for idiots actions.

  4. What’s sad to see, is blatant nasty open antisemitism Fran m what is supposed to be a town of nice normal Americans.

    Due to perceptions of reality in Lakewood too often all Jews living in or around the area are just judged as a whole. Perhaps there is some truth to some observations; however I cannot justify the vile and deep hatred being purpotrtrared on Jews and I don’t believe this kind of behavior is righteous of anyone.

    Clearly haters are suffering in their hearts but that’s not an excuse to hate. Hate often come from m fear or jelesouy.

    I think all good people need to be engage in productive conversation on how the local Jewish population can learn what’s bothering our neighbors and participate in more open educated dialogue with our neighbors.

    Perhaps there hate is arroused by things some of us do? Perhaps we need to act with more open piety. Proactively address their concerns as neighbors with predudice and hear what they truly want.

    The people who aren’t Jewish living here them umongat us and us umonst them, just want quality of life and not to see scandles purpotrated by us Jews who are expected to live by higher principles.

    I am not justifying hate. I am not here to fully explain our neighbors anger but I do know we can take an active roll in working on this together and with our neighbors if we embrace the challenge and refrain from hurtful reaction, negative behavior that only fuels additional hatred.

    Let our neighbors be proud of there Jewish neighbors and let’s trim this around for us and them.

    Find a way to go out of your way and show our neighbors who we really are. G-d fearing G-d loving people who want a quality life and who respect our neighbors rights to follow their way of life.

    In closing, no one is perfect. Focus on bad and negitity and that’s what you are. Focus on Good and positivity and that’s what you’ll become.

    With Brach and blessings to all living together in the LW TR area.

    Everyone needs to try harder.
