  1. I hope you’re able to get back home before Chatzos HaLailah to eat lunch. If not, ask your Rav if you can eat lunch first and then say Tikun Chatzos afterward. Or, better yet, you can make yourself an erev Tisha B’av meal: Eat a piece of bread and a hard boiled egg with ashes for lunch, and then you can eat lunch and say Tikun Chatzos at the same time, with a clear conscience.

  2. who cares. Let’s focus on what’s important. Can we have more information as my rav says he has no idea if I have to kasher my keilim based on the very limited info the OK has put out.

  3. not sure what the problem is
    isnt this what everyone that moved to lakewood wanted to be happy and live in a quite but congested place but not New York
    Blah Blah Blah complain but keep on building
    im so glad i left

    • “Oy, was he a masmid! I used to see him all day and all night long, sitting in his car on route 9 and he never picked up his eyes from the gemara for even one second! Why? Because of his tremendous hasmada, and because there was no purpose for him to pick up his eyes from the gemara just to see the same car in front of him that was in front of him 7 hours earlier!”

      • So safety is the only indicator while all the other quality of life issues are meaningless?
        You should build a city and put a cop on every corner. Don’t worry about traffic, parking, reliable electricity, cell service, sewer, garbage pickup, after all you offer residents safety.

  5. Once the driver came to Central it took only five minutes to get to County Line. See what a difference two lanes make! It’s high time they put in a second lane south of Central and see the traffic ease up exponentially.
