As recent OPRA releases have shown, the Jackson Township crackdown on Eruvs – and possibly other issues – was motivated and pushed forward by a small group of anti-Semitic residents who have made it their mission to make life harder for Jackson’s new residents.
These self-proclaimed watchdogs have gone after the new residents, and have been stirring the pot on every issue possible, documents show.
In order to better understand who was behind recent ordinances, and what their complaints have been, dozens of OPRA requests were recently made, and some of the results have been shared with TLS. They are currently being reviewed, and will be shared with the public.
Some of the topics include Sukkas, Shuls, Eruvs, Real Estate, Dormitories and much more.
Disgusting? Yeah. Shocking? No.
Please share them soon and send them to Attorney General Porrino. It’s important for him to see the underhanded tactics and methods used by the Jackson Council to keep Jews out of Jackson. Dreaming up and concocting all different kinds of ordinances and laws for one specific purpose : to placate the bored, narrow minded anti-Semites who have made it their mission in life to harass and malign the Jewish community. STAND UP TO THE HATE
the prob with exposing the the town, mayor, council/committe whatever they call themselves is that they’re gonna get savvy and start communicating in the underground (probably started already) to avoid OPRA exposure. REAL SAD
I think its time for the Jackson residents to hire a private investigator….
I ‘ hope” the ” kelly file” is released first…..
Last comment I made should have spelled ” antisemite ” correctly ! Shame on you Jackson for your ” out of the closet ” beginning Naziism , because that’s exactly what it is !! Shame on you !!!
Disgusting? Yes. Need to be investigated? Yes. Naziism? Relax. And yes I am a Jackson resident that very much wants an Eruv but lets not use the anti semite/naziism terms so lightly. My grandparents went through the holocaust. To call someone a Nazi that tries to make laws against the orthodox is wrong. You cannot compare that to brutally murdering millions of Jews.
Save all the facebook hate files before they delete them.
Jackson is a wonderful town, it’s a shame to allow a few haters to ruin it.
The Blockbusting laws and claims should also be apart of the lawsuit btw
At least Toms River was smart, they realized that this is just a losing, unAmerican battle that will spiral way downward
The township should be warned that we will vote to change the town name to Jacobson Township if they don’t stop the anti-Jewish campaign.
Nobody is actually saying that if you pass laws against Jews you are morally equivalent with a Nazi murderer. What we are saying is that the hate and race baiting used by some members of the Jackson Council and by Jackson Strong are eerily similar to the way the Nazi party built up support against the Jews. The Nazi party didn’t start out by saying “we want to kill 6 million Jews,” rather they slowly built up propaganda and angst amonst the general public against the Jewish people. Their tactics in the early 30’s are very similar to the tactics being used by many in regards to Orthodox Jews in 2017. Also eerily similar is how Hitler wasn’t really condemned by the people of Germany or the media, both of which seem to be going on in our situation in 2017. My grandparents also perished in Auschwitz, I would like to hope they didn’t die in vain. I think they would wish that people would’ve spoken up when it started in the 1930’s. Which is why people are speaking up now, and trying to wake people out of the new norm which is unfortunately very friendly to Jew haters and race baiters.
Someone should do an OPRA on Jackson PD. It seems obvious that there is a memo to target/harras cars leaving Lakewood. I’ve been driving through Jackson everyday for many years and the change is obvious. Police are pulling over cars for no reason and then finding minor infractions like partial “blocked” license plates and for “obstructed view” from cell phone holders.
Jackson township, will always be jackson, that is the name of the town and always will be, jackson residents are proud and stronge, we love our schools for our children, and our sport programs rock, no one will ever change it!
That’s great and we applaud your pride in Jackson. No one is looking to change it. The outrage is over how elected officials can be so unwelcoming and -dare I say- racists.
No one is looking to change or impose a lifestyle you do like or agree with. All that’s asked is you treat EVERYONE with mutual respect and dignity.
America is a land of immigrants. That’s what makes us great and strong.
Let’s not have hate divide us.
You need to learn how to write English correctly if you’re going to comment on public forums. That said, your hatred is obvious despite your feeble attempt to cover up your bigotry. You are part of the problem not the solution. Your attitude is unacceptable and offensive. You need to grow up and learn to get along with others.
@Andrea is surely running off and telling her friends about the the plot she uncovered to change the name of the town. From her comment it’s obvious that she didn’t understand that the comment about changing the name to Jacobson was meant as a joke. Who knows if it will be used to incite more hatred against us. We live in crazy times, and every word should be measured when speaking in a public forum such as the TLS.
where are the Files..cant ignore
Time will tell. Right now “JACKSON” is a joke!
A sad joke, that if they keep it up, they will find themselves on the wrong side of the law.
It is not antisemistism. It is anti-orthodox. There is a substantial difference and everyone who claims it is anti-semitism fails to comprehend and understand the differences.
