A trailer for a new documentary on the tremendous Orthodox Jewish growth of Lakewood has been released by the Ocean County Rise group.
The documentary, which is set top be released in February, will describe the Orthodox Jewish population boom in the New Jersey township with an unfavorable slant. The documentary is being pushed by a group called Ocean County Rise, a Facebook group dedicated to ending the spread of Orthodox Jews in Ocean County.
The group blames many of the Township’s failings on the burst in the Jewish population in the past few decades. The group denies being Antisemitic but assigns blame to an entire subset of the population that are distinct from them. This comes despite the many gains and boons brought in by the Jewish population.
