The Luni Muni


Teens-011813-muni-meter

The New York Muni-Meter system is a disaster! There are many issues that have presented themselves with this new idea and they need to be solved.

For example, sometimes you have to walk more than half a block to purchase a ticket to put in the dash board. This is quite time consuming.

The council voted 47-2 to allow for a 5-minute grace period at Muni-Meters before officers can issue a ticket. “I actually had officers standing next to my car waiting for the time to expire,” one driver remarked.

In addition, you can’t ask someone to feed your meter, you have to give them your car keys and then make sure to get them back.  Another problem is that the ticket needs to be placed in the dashboard on the driver’s side, which is sometimes on the street side.  People need to put their ticket in the car while traffic is passing right alongside them, which can be quite dangerous!  If one has a baby carriage, they are forced to leave their baby unattended on the sidewalk while they place their ticket in the car.

What do you do when it’s raining outside and your umbrella is protecting you, your baby and other children?

Sometimes, Muni-Meters are broken. After searching for a spot for a long time, you are now stuck because you can’t get a ticket from any machine.  I can personally relate to this scenario:

It was a rainy day when I finally found a spot in front of a store. Soaked to the skin I had to run to the Muni-Meter located on the other end of the block. I was standing while the water rained down on me, pressing the buttons on the machine to make it work.  But it didn’t! Even though it’s easier for the Muni-Meter money collectors to amass from one machine per block it is bothersome to the general population.

As you can see, the Muni-Meters need to be dealt with. Are you going to go into action and do something or just stand there and let the government get away with it!

Jews, wake up! Stop educating the world and start educating yourselves.

Hebrew Academy students learn the ABC’s of safety during Hebrew Academy’s recent Safety Kid Program.

The lessons conform to the sensitivities and needs of the Orthodox community…

Women learn in honor of first yahrzeit of Rebbetzin Chasia Kudan, a”h.

The program took on special significance as it marked not only the first anniversary of Rebbetzin Kudan’s levayah but also the 27th yahrzeit of Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneerson, a”h.

It captures the love of the Jewish soul as only Shlomo Hamelech could portray it – and as only Rabbi Miller could explain it.

Erudite and academic, drawing from ancient and modern sources, the book can be discussed at the Shabbos table as well as in kollel.

I’m here to sit next to you and help you through this Purim with three almost-too-easy mishloach manot ideas, all made with cost-conscious paper bags.

Kids want to be like their friends, and they want to give and get “normal” mishloach manos stocked with store-bought treats.

Whenever he did anything loving for me, I made a big deal about it.

“OMG, it’s so cute, you’re so cute, everything is so cute.”

A program that started with a handful of volunteers has grown exponentially to include students from a wider array of backgrounds.

Tutor. Counselor. The doctor too,
Sometimes it’s hard to keep up with you.

Recently, due to age and wear, programming and NCSY events were moved into portable units outside the youth building.
