Lakewood Follows Daas Torah
Avraham Sharaby’s op-ed last week about Lakewood left out one major point: daas Torah. The members of the Vaad would not do anything against daas Torah.
For example: Non-yeshivish people who have settled in Lakewood are trying to push for an eruv around all of Lakewood. Daas Torah does not want this to happen. So to counteract this proposal, the Vaad is increasing Lakewood’s population so that it will come under the halachic ruling of Reb Moshe that forbids an eruv in mega population centers.
