During the meeting, shocking comments were made, including references to a “cultural genocide” and accusations of a “hostile takeover” by the Orthodox community in Jackson Township. The divisive remarks took aim at the Orthodox Jewish community, igniting tensions and casting a dark shadow over what should be a forum for constructive dialogue.

One of the particularly alarming statements involved calls to bar an Orthodox council member from voting, highlighting a troubling attempt to marginalize a representative based on their religious affiliation. Such exclusionary sentiments go against the principles of inclusivity and equal representation that form the foundation of a democratic society.

I think we have to be respectful of a quite town and not turn a quite sleepy town Into a congested urban environment overnight by building multiple schools one one properly that will house over 4 thousand children with hundreds of busses. We are in galus and we have to try to make a kiddush hashem

As I’ve asked the “forbidden” question before, “Why don’t people want Frum Yidden moving in?”
The “easy” answer is no other reason than Antisemitism. The hard answer is a lot more uncomfortable than we care to admit.

We are supposed to be a “light for the nations” does anyone understand that every where frum people move in,- they cant stand us. Now there are 2 ways we can look at it.
1 -Eisof Soneeh L’Yakov and there is not o reason, they just hate
2 – Frum people come in and distroy their live , they build what we awant and have no care for those who liveed there before. They turn the streets into parking lots. This is exactly what they did in Monsey where I live, and was told many times in Shul “You don’t lke it move”
Get you head out of the groung and realize what we are doing.

The residents of Jackson don’t hate the Frum families that are moving in they hate the handful of developers who ignore even the most basic of zoning and building codes then yell anti-semetism when they are caught and forced to bring their building in compliance. Most Jewish families moved to Jackson to get away from that just like the residents who live there now.

I’m not taking sides but we do need to be very sensitive to the fact that no one likes changing demographics and that we are putting ourselves in danger if our politicians are perceived as only caring about our interests.

Consideration of keeping the existing community as it is remains important. Overbuilding, too much traffic congestion will create animosity. I don’t live there, I don’t know, but I recall how parts of Monsey have changed dramatically, with small homes and nice lawns turned into multi housing buildings and the lawns nothing but dirt, which makes even frum neighbors want to move away. Can’t do this in a non-Jewish town.

Yes they are wrong.

But …. Galus! There are so many places for yiddishe communities to prosper, why are we pushing ours into their faces. ? Why do a chillul HASHEM ?

I think we should get out of Jackson and build beautiful communities elsewhere.

It hurts me to say it cuz they simply hate us. But we need to know we are in galus and these ppl are just a “sample” of everyone else’s attitude in jackson. .

No idea if these townspeople have a legitimate beef or not, but would be nice if they directed their anger at real illegal immigration and the tremendous drain it is in the NJ economy…..never mind the highest property taxes in the country. How about voting the right people in:

There was a Black person in the audience who had the gall to accuse the Orthodox Jews who settled in Lakewood, NJ, of “cultural genocide”. He stated that he lived in Lakewood his whole life, and attended Lakewood High School; however, he further stated that he was forced to move, because of the Orthodox who moved in. Can anyone imagine if it was an Orthodox person who spoke at the microphone, and stated that “he was forced to move, because of all the Blacks moving in”? What chutzpah took place at that meeting! Also, I can’t understand some of the comments which state that “we are in golus”. In other words, we should watch our backs, since we are not really full fledged U.S. citizens; please!!

Tachlis, eventually we American Jews are going to have to leave for our homeland. We hope that it will be ברחמים but we don’t know. We try not to think about it, but the destiny of עם ישראל is to be back in ארץ ישראל

if only the Lakewood community would be true to their values/excuse of not attending the Erertz Yisroel rally because it will only cause more Anti Semitism and apply this principals back in Lakewood it would be more meaningful. but I GUESS $ is more important than Jewish Lives of Chilonim and garbage men.

Nothing ever stays the same. Cities and towns evolve. Look at BP now compared the the 70’s and 80’s. It really is only about shifting demographics. Many of the older residents living in Jackson have smaller families and some don’t have grandchildren. As they die out or move out due to retirement some other group will move in. Be it either Jews, Hispanics, Middle Eastern or Asian families with young children who need housing. So please don’t sound like the residents at this meeting. New residents add new flavor and change the town, it’s pure economics so please leave our own out of it!

Are the free handouts so great in NJ that the Frum are willing to put up with these people??? when accounting for NJ taxes, it might make financial sense for everyone to move to Baltimore. Plenty of land within a a large eruv

Even if it was one frum family, they would be opposed. They hate Jews, plain and simple.

How is everyone feeling in BP about the Asians moving-in in droves in and around 8th, 9th and now already into 10th Ave from the low 40s to 65th Street?! Let’s not blame people living in a Town that is quiet now and about to be turned on it’s head. Yes, things shouldn’t have been said the way it was said. A simple point of, we want what we invested in to remain, would and should have been enough…

I believe strongly when we see the whome world turning against tbe hews that it’s not right to create more anti semites especially when thus has nothing to do with anti semitism. We have to sit down with the non jews validate their concerns and work out a solution that can work for everyone!!

Its been the same all over the Tri-state – Lakewood, Monsey, New Square, etc Jews move in and change the demographics and the locals dont like it. What was once a tranquil community becomes bulldozed by an insular group taking over, disrupting their way of life and thereby driving the locals out.
This has been done since Christopher Columbus arrived at these shores!
But having a yiddishe kop, and learning from all the other similar locations with the same issues, there must be a smarter way of going about this without upsetting the locals and giving them more reason to be anti-semitic.

I moved from BP to Lakewood about 11 years ago. There was a very friendly African-American neighbor of mine who told me, you can imagine how many people are knocking on his door to buy his house, and he refuses to sell. I asked him why, and his response was amazing. For the last 30 years that I have been living here, this was a bad neighborhood; now that the Jewish people are moving in and it’s friendly and safe, I should move out? He said no way!!!

I’m shocked by the apologetics going on here in the comments section. Yes, these residents are scared and concerned but it’s coming from a bad place. The residents have a warped view of Jews as an insidious group who have “vested interests”. This is not very different from the rank antisemitism of Nazi or Soviet propagandists.

Wouldn’t it be helpful to all of us if the article explained what ordinance was the issue and details on the proposed school which was mentioned? I have served on a board similar to that which is holding the hearing.

People, don’t go where you are not wanted! And be respectful of town status quo and local ordinances if you are colonizing a new neighborhood. The rhetoric of these Ocean County opponents is horrendous BUT it belies familiarity with other small towns that have marginalized local residents in a short period of time with everything from new traffic patterns to stressed local resources and way too many building variances.
Let’s face it: once we move in we need shuls and then schools. ANd then more of us come. Find places to live where all of these eventualities are predicted. NO HOMEOWNER wants to suddenly become a minority ethnic group in their own neighborhood and have those others change their status quo. Not everyone hates Jews! Just look at what’s happened to Monsey in the last 5 y.

Guys, if you can’t recognize Nazi rhetoric, you haven’t studied enough Holocaust history, and you need to hit the books.

If you were a non-Jew, would you want your town or city to become like Boro Park, where non-Jews are ignored and irrelevant?

Would you want all the stores to be closed on Saturdays and Jewish Holidays?

Would you want all your neighbors to speak Yiddish?

Would you want signs in a language that you do not understand?

If you were a non-married non-Jew, would you want all all your neighbors to to be people who you could never marry or even date?

This is a moment of clarity for all of Israel the same thing is happening in parts of Florida . But unfortunately we are living in an exile and when the Gentiles see us prosper be happy and have many children their hatred rears its ugly head and they say wait a minute the Jews are living better than us we can’t have that. This should only make us stronger unite and pray to GD every day to keep us safe and our family safe . And never ever forget that we are living in exile…
