How Lakewood became a worldwide destination for Orthodox -ews

By Mark Di Ionno [email protected],
Columnist, The Star-Ledger

It is Friday in Lakewood.

A few thousand young men in black suits and wide-brimmed black hats are rushing toward Beth Medrash Govoha (BMG), the world's largest yeshiva outside of Israel.

Parking in the vicinity of the school is as impossible as finding a spot in Hoboken or Jersey City. Students circle in their Toyotas, Nissans and other compact cars, looking for a place to edge in. Most driveways are filled, too. In the parking lot behind the school offices, cars are tripled-parked, covering both fire lanes.

While the men are in school, their young wives are in the downtown, a few blocks away. Most have a one or two children in tow, and are pushing a stroller. They are shopping for Shabbat, the day of worship, rest and traditional meals that begins just before sunset on Fridays and ends after sunset on Saturday evening.
