LAKEWOOD, NJ – Nearly five years ago, an Ocean County road department worker hosted a skit mocking the Lakewood Jewish community inside the garage at the Plumsted garage of the Ocean County Road Department.
Now, spurred by a news story in Lakewood, members of the community are calling for the man’s job. According to a report in the Lakewood Scoop, the employee donned a yarmulke and began a comedy skit mocking the Lakewood community after putting up a poster for “Adopt-A-Kollel” on the shop wall.
The video was submitted to the Lakewood Scoop by ‘an anonymous former employee’.
It is unknown why the poster was hung up on the shop wall. The incident took place on January 18th, 2018. The employee is still employed by the county.
County officials did not respond to the matter, but told the Lakewood Scoop they are taking the matter very seriously and have begun an investigation.
