Lakewood Mom Arrested For Leaving Her Child for 40 Minutes in a Hot Car While Shopping

Charged: Police were waiting for the mother to return to the car and arrested her. She has been charged with child endangerment 

I am begging mothers and fathers to see the picture above and engrave it into their heads ......
She is lucky that she is not sitting shiva today ...

A retired sergeant used a sledgehammer to rescue a baby that had been locked inside a hot car outside a New Jersey shopping center this week.

Officials say that 53-year-old Steve Eckel of Jackson and 30-year-old Sarah Mazzone on Tuesday saw the four-month-old girl crying and sweating alone inside the vehicle in Howell, which was locked with its windows closed.

Temperatures were in the upper 80s that day and Eckel said the interior of the car was way hotter.
'Well over 120 degrees, just think of what could have happened,' Eckel told CBS


Eckel broke the front passenger window using a sledgehammer he had in his trunk, and Mazzone carried the infant into an air-conditioned store.

The child's mother approached the vehicle in a panic and police determined the baby was left in the vehicle for about 40 minutes.

Police charged a 33-year-old lady of Lakewood with child endangerment. 
'I do believe in guardian angels, and I think I'm the one for this child,' Eckel told CBS.
'She was sweating, crying, eyes rolling back.'


It's not known if the lady  has a lawyer, but Eckel, as a former officer, has some advice for her.

'She should plead guilty and get probation and realize you just can't do this,' Eckel said. 
Police say the baby appeared fine after she cooled down.

11. During your tenure as Secretary of State, what, if any, effort did you make to inform the State Department's records management personnel (e.g., Clarence Finney or the Executive Secretariat's Office of Correspondence and Records) about your use of a clintonemail.com email account to conduct official State Department business?

Similarly, John Bentel, the Director of Information and Records Management in the Executive Secretariat, wrote, 'You should be aware that any email would go through the Department's infrastructure and [be] subject to FOIA searches.' Did you request a State Department issued Blackberry or a State Department email account in or around August 2011, and, if so, why did you continue using your personal device and clintonemail.com email account to conduct official State Department business instead of replacing your device and account with a State Department-issued BlackBerry or a State Department email account?

23. After your lawyers completed their review of the emails in your clintonemail.com email account in late 2014, were the electronic versions of your emails preserved, deleted, or destroyed? If they were deleted or destroyed, what tool or software was used to delete or destroy them, who deleted or destroyed them, and was the deletion or destruction done at your direction? 

24. During your October 22, 2015 appearance before the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on Benghazi, you testified that 90 to 95 percent of your emails 'were in the State's system' and 'if they wanted to see them, they would certainly have been able to do so.'

Target Cries 'Uncle,' Begs Shoppers to Come Back after allowing Men in Ladies Bathrooms

 Image result for target
Target is launching a first-of-its-kind one-day sale to try and boost back-to-school shopper traffic amid a boycott over its bathroom policy. The retailer is offering a 10% discount on everything in its stores and online on Sunday. Target is calling the event #TargetRunDay.
It marks the first time Target has ever offered a 10% discount both in stores and on its website. The sale comes after Target last weekreported its first quarterly traffic decline in more than two years.
This is what happens when you blindly hop on the social-justice bandwagon without consulting your customers, understanding their morals, or giving a damn about what they think. Serves Target right. Drive by any Target store since the "transgender" policy went into effect and witness an ocean of empty spaces in their parking lots.
Target's same-store transactions, which is how traffic is measured, fell 2.2% in the second quarter. Overall, sales fell 7.2% to $16.2 billion. "In the second quarter, our No. 1 challenge was traffic, which affected sales in all of our merchandise categories," Target CEO Brian Cornell said last week on a call with analysts.
Shopper traffic is falling amid a boycott over Target's new policy, announced earlier this year, that welcomes customers to use any bathroom or fitting room that matches their gender identity. The announcement triggered an immediate backlash. Critics said the policyopened the door for sexual predators to victimize women and children inside the retailer's bathrooms, and more than 1.4 million people signeda pledge to stop shopping at Target unless it reversed the policy.

Crazed "Principal" Fired Betar Illit Teacher because she got a Drivers License To Assist Disabled Daughter

1
Guys ????? Can someone explain why a lady needs permission from Rav to get a drivers license?
Have we totally lost our collective minds????
If the family made a decision that she get a drivers license, what business is that of the Rabbonim??

Read this and laugh!!!!!

A chassidish woman who lives in Betar Illit got a drivers license in the hope of making her disabled daughter’s life easier. The woman has been employed in education in the chareidi community for years and she is well known in the community. However, after she received her license she was dismissed from her teaching position. 

The woman consulted with a prominent rav and their rebbe before going for her license, which she explains is simply to transport their young daughter who has been classified by Bituach Leumi as “100% disabled”.
After her case was reviewed the husband was told to get a license but after encountering difficulties, he was told to instruct his rebitzen to get a license to permit her to address the special needs of their daughter.

Despite the fact a rebbe instructed her to get the license, the decision was made to fire her from her teaching position. Kikar Shabbos News quotes someone close to the case quoting the principal of the school, who is familiar with the details surrounding the case saying “It doesn’t interest me. I will not tolerate a teacher with a drivers license”.
The teacher and her family refuse to comment on the story explaining they do not wish to cause a Chilul Hashem. Regarding the principal, she too has declined comment.

This Frum Jew sold Arms to Iran!

Can you believe it?  ... a frum Jew with a big white beard sells out his brothers and sisters for a couple of kopeks ...


An ultra-Orthodox Israeli-American man suspected of selling military equipment to Iran will soon be extradited to the United States, where he will face illegal arms trade charges, the Supreme Court ruled on Sunday.

The U.S. filed an extradition request for Aryeh Eliyahu Cohen, 66, in April 2014. He was arrested at Ben-Gurion International Airport the following month on his way to London, and was placed under house arrest. Cohen had appealed the extradition request, but his appeal was denied.

Cohen faces an arms trafficking indictment filed against him with a federal court in Connecticut. The indictment, which also names several other defendants, concerns the operations of three companies with which Cohen has ties.

50 "fake" Orthodox leaders, led by Rabbi Irving “Yitz” Greenberg condemn Trump

Hillary Caught Lying
This group never once condemned Hillary for surrounding herself with the anti-Semite, Sid Blumenthal, the self-hating Jew! 

They never condemned Hillary for surrounding herself with Huma whose mother belongs to the Arab Brotherhood! But they are afraid of Trump!

Rabbi Yitz (the 80 year old alter Kacker still calls himself "Yitz") Greenberg leads these group of stooges, don't represent Orthodox Jewry, nor Reform Jewry or Conservative Jewry ... they represent a bunch of morons ...


A group of 50 high-profile Open Orthodox leaders, led by Rabbi Irving “Yitz” Greenberg, released a joint public “rabbinic” condemnation of Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump this past Erev Shabbos. (Readers may recall that Greenberg has previously compared the Christian deity to Avrohom Avinu and written that the Torah is no longer binding after the Holocaust, but he is viewed as an elder sage in Open Orthodoxy.)

In an article written by Greenberg and by Yeshivat Chovevei Torah graduate Daniel Goodman, posted on Cleveland.com and then reported by the Jewish Telegraph Agency and the Forward, among other media sites, the Open Orthodox clergy singled out and attacked Mr. Trump’s perceived attitudes toward Muslims, Mexicans and women, and wrote:
(W)e are troubled by candidates who signal authoritarian tendencies and pursue personal vendettas that come across as a dismissal of constitutional rights and legal processes. Protection of the law, equality before the law, and respecting democratic political processes (though they may fall into gridlock or frustrate us from time to time) are the bedrocks of democracy. Democracy is the system most protective of human dignity. Upholding it and protecting its processes is of the highest religious value. The fact that these dangerous tendencies have been coupled with statements of admiration for authoritarian dictators has aroused our conscience.  
“All these behaviors, taken together, have led us to make this extraordinary statement in the name of our religious principles. Our core religious values and essential theological beliefs require us to condemn Donald Trump’s hateful rhetoric and intolerant policy proposals in the strongest possible terms.”
The open letter was signed by Dov Linzer and Jeffrey Fox, the roshei yeshiva of both Open Orthodox seminaries (YCT and Yeshivat Maharat, the latter of which ordains female clergy), as well as by “Rabba” Sara Hurwitz, dean of Yeshivat Maharat, Dr. Dov Lerea, mashgiach ruchani of YCT, and 36 other Open Orthodox leaders, including YCT rabbeim, several Open Orthodox female rabbis, and a man who advertises that he is an Orthodox rabbi who publicly adheres to a to’eivah lifestyle.

Hotel in Greece Distinguishes Israelis From Other Tourists With Blue Wrist Bands


Israeli visitors are tagged differently from other guests at a five-star resort in Rhodes, Greece Israel’s Channel 10 reported on Sunday.

According to the report, the plastic wrist bands given to guests at the Imperial Hotel – to enable them unlimited entrance to the spa and other facilities – are color-coded (in blue) only for customers from the Jewish state.
When asked about this procedure, a representative of the hotel told the network’s Orly Vilnai and Guy Meroz that the colors simply identify the country of the guest’s origin. However, an investigation into the matter by the TV duo revealed that this was not the case – and that only Israelis were given a specific color to wear, while tourists from various European countries were given bracelets of all colors.
An Israeli airline adviser said he was unaware of this practice.
“When it happens and everyone keeps quiet, nothing changes,” said Yehuda Zafrani. “This story has to be told.”
According to Channel 10, hotels in the southern Israeli resort town of Eilat also distribute different-colored wrist bands to guests, but only according to the date of their arrival at the hotel.
At Israel’s International Tourism Fair in February this year, Rhodes Tourism Deputy Mayor Marisa Chatzilazarou called her country “the favorite destination of Israelis,” claiming that in 2015 alone, 102,705 Israelis visited the island. Israel, according to data revealed at the tourism fair, is Rhodes’ 5th largest tourism market, surpassed only by England, Germany, Sweden and Russia.
It takes approximately an hour and a half to fly from Tel Aviv to Rhodes.

How a Holocaust survivor and a 39-year-old fell in love

Jack Garfein, 86, and Natalia Repolovsky, 39, in their Upper West Side apartment.

Holocaust survivor Jack Garfein celebrated his 86th birthday on July 2 in his Upper West Side apartment surrounded by friends, eating chocolate cake, sipping champagne — and getting engaged to his 39–year-old girlfriend.
“I just told her ‘I can’t live without you. Will you marry me?’ ” Garfein told The Post. “She said, ‘Of course I will. What took you so long to ask?’ ”
When Natalia Repolovsky first met the charismatic acting coach at a Manhattan social gathering on April 28, 2012 — shortly after she arrived in the United States from Russia — she was instantly smitten.
“He gave me one of those overly firm handshakes,” Repolovsky ­recalled. “I thought ‘This guy has some nerve.’ ”
But she also felt oddly possessive of him.
“There was a lot of actors and actresses there who knew each other — a very flirtatious crowd,” Repolovsky recalled. 
Garfein, an Auschwitz survivor and part-time Paris resident, was equally taken with her.
“My first impression of Natalia was what a beautiful girl,” said Garfein. “I am a man.”
The pair exchanged phone numbers and agreed to go to dinner the following week.
“When I got home that night I said, ‘God, I can’t believe you sent me an 82-year-old man to fall in love with. I’m only 36,’ ” said Repolovsky, a technical writer for a software firm.
She feared “people [were] going to look at me so differently when I’m with him . . . I called my friend in Moscow who said, ‘The way you feel now, you should take all of it and enjoy every minute. If it lasts a day, enjoy it. If it lasts a month, enjoy it. Who cares what people think?’ ”
Five days later the pair met at Frankie & Johnnie’s Steakhouse in Midtown for a dinner of filet mignon and calf’s liver.
“In the taxi ride home after our first date, I talked about very personal, intimate things,” remembered Garfein. “I immediately thought ‘This is a person who gets me.’ I just felt a closeness that I’ve never felt in my life. I felt a connection. I felt at home.”
And it didn’t stop there.
“We kissed,” Garfein added. “I would call it an explosion.”
“I thought, ‘How dare she?’ ”
Garfein, an Auschwitz survivor and part-time Paris resident, was equally taken with her.

And it didn’t stop there.
“We kissed,” Garfein added. “I would call it an explosion.”
Having seen so much suffering in his life, he certainly knows to appreciate sheer joy.
Garfein was born in then-Czechoslovakia to a well-off Jewish family who owned a lumber yard. His mother, sister and father perished in Nazi gas chambers, but he managed to survive 11 concentration camps, including Auschwitz.
When the English army liberated Bergen-Belsen death camp in northern Germany on April 15, 1945, Garfein weighed 48 pounds.
He arrived in the United States a year later and eventually became a central figure in the Actors Studio.
Garfein collaborated with Marlon Brando, Marilyn Monroe, Paul Newman, Elia Kazan and James Dean, and is credited with discovering actors Ben Gazzara, Steve McQueen and George Peppard. He also directed two movies: 1957’s “The Strange One,” starring Gazzara and the 1961 Carroll Baker drama “Something Wild.”
These days, when Garfein, twice divorced and the father of four, isn’t teaching acting in London or Paris, he and Repolovsky spend weekends taking long walks through Central Park and enjoying leisurely breakfasts in bed.
The couple plan to wed next month. Repolovsky has no problem getting married in City Hall but Garfein wants no part of a quickie wedding.
“I want a real wedding. I belong to the Fifth Avenue Synagogue,” said Garfein. “It’s going to be a big party!”

Rav Edelstein and Rav Shternbuch: Was Ben Gurion Worse Than Hitler?

Image result for rav edelstein
Guys ...Listen to this .... You want to know what children are learning in Cheder?

The rebbes are teaching toddlers that Ben Gurion was worse than Hitler .....

Hitler YM"S killed more than 6 million Jews .... put millions in concentration camps, where they were tortured ... and yet Ben Gurion, who founded a State where over 100,000 Jewish Boys are learning Torah ...is "worse than Hitler????"

And there are "gedoilim" out there agreeing with that outrageous sick preposterous statement!

Who is the "gadol?" that agreed with this brainwashing technique?  .... He is a Rabbi that lives in safety  in  Israel, the state that Ben Gurion founded!
Rav Moshe Sterbuch ga'avad of the fanatical corrupt Eida Hachreidis!


Rav Yaakov Edelstein, rov of Ramat Hasharon, wrote a letter stating that he was shocked to hear that a cheder rebbi told his pupils that former Prime Minister David Ben Gurion was worse than Hitler because Ben Gurion destroyed Jews’ souls, while Hitler only destroyed their bodies.
Rav Edelstein noted that it is indeed said in the name of the Chazon Ish that “There was a Holocaust in Europe and there was also a Holocaust in Eretz Yisroel where hundreds of thousands of innocent Jews from Asian and African countries drank the cup of bitterness because of the government in the first years of the state, and left the religion of Moshe and Yisroel in a spiritual Holocaust.”
Nonetheless, Rav Edelstein maintained, the Chazon Ish was writing of those who were harmed. But regarding the Jews who harmed them, it is obvious that Hashem loves even Jewish transgressors. Rav Edelstein cited three sources to prove this concept including Rabi Yehuda’s statement (Kiddushin 36a) that Jews are called sons of Hashem even when they do not behave like sons.
Rav Moshe Sternbuch, ga’avad of the Eidah Hachareidis, disagreed with Rav Edelstein’s opinion. He supported his view with Dovid Hamelech’s statement (Tehillim 139:21-22), “I hate those who hate you, Hashem, and I fight those who fight You. I hate them with extreme hate, they were enemies to me.”
