  1. Is there a name for tehillim?
    That’s a rotten intersection even for cars. The area can’t handle the volume of traffic, especially at peak times. The time has come to revamp the roads so they can accommodate the traffic.

  2. May he have a complete and quick refuah sheleima and be blessed with a long life.

    Although i’m not sure that this comment is even appropriate hereā€¦I saw the scene tonight as i was driving home. It was traumatic.
    It is time that the parents/schools/rabbanim in this town focus on pedestrian safety. Reflectors, proper protocol when crossing roads. We want to keep our children safe.

    Pedestrians aren’t careful enough
    Drivers aren’t careful enough
    & our little “town infrastructure” is long expired. It cannot accommodate the city we’ve become
