PHOTO: Amid Nationwide Police Tensions, Local Rav’s Family Bakes Cupcakes for LPD

cupcakesPHOTO: In light of the negativity surrounding police forces throughout the country, a local Rabbi was determined to show support and appreciation of Lakewood’s police officers.

In a show of solidarity and support, Rabbi Lefkowitz, Rav of Kollel Bnei Torah, and his family, brought homemade treats to the Lakewood Police Department.

“The officers were visibly moved by this gesture as it was refreshing to see community leaders come out to support them,” a bystander in headquarters at the time told TLS.

  1. It’s a beautiful story of an individual expressing his Hakoras Hatov -something that us yidden do best. I am sure being a Rov too and with a lot of charisma and personality without a doubt it added to the moment.

  2. @ abraham

    The point isnt to feed the police department, its about expressing gratitude. I’m sure those officer who didn’t get a cupcake will find the nearest dunkin donuts and get their daily fix.

  3. Can you please share this with the Asbury Park Press? Show the masses who Lakewood really is. APP doesn’t like highlighting any good from this community though.

  4. Rabbi Lefkowitz has a Outstanding kollel in town that molds lucky individuals into outstanding talmida chachomim with his wide breath of the Torah knowledge, insight and extraordinary charisma. Thank you Rabbi Lefkowitz for all that you do!

  5. No-one is giving credit to Mrs Lefkowitz who most probably baked those delicious cupcakes. Thank you Mrs Lefkowitz! They sure look delicious!!
