  1. Are you implying that everyone in Lakewood should go up and down the streets and shovel the snow??? They’re not plowing trucks. They’re people.

  2. Boys schools are open primarily for those within reasonable walking distance. For girls, on the other hand, there’s no inyan for them to be moiser nefesh to the extant of walking to school in inclement weather.
