Combating Cyber Attacks

Rabbi David Rosenthal

 To one extent or another, most of our administrators and even some of our page followers have come under some form of online attack perpetrated by one of our opponents.  In most cases we learn to live with it as nothing more than an annoyance but one individual in particular has escalated his assaults to a criminal level.

We are now in contact with law enforcement regarding a Manalapan Rabbi, David Rosenthal.  As the co-founder of Manalapan Jewish Connection and working in partnership with the Jewish Learning Center Community, also of Manalapan, Rabbi Rosenthal has embarked on a reign of cyber-terror that has escalated to an alarming level.  As such we are taking steps to put an end to it.

If you, a member of your family, an employer or friend have been contacted by Rabbi David Rosenthal in a manner that made you feel threatened, intimidated or harassed, we urge you to contact us, confidentially, at RUOCCyberTaskForce@gmail.com.  We will consult with you, outline your options and if appropriate put you in contact with law enforcement for purposes of filing criminal complaints.

About Us


The adverse effects of continued development and growth in Lakewood, NJ are being felt by every surrounding community, particularly in Toms River, Brick, Howell and Jackson.  Schools, infrastructure, municipal and school budgets, municipal, county and state resources are all being pushed to the breaking point.

Quality of life issues in the surrounding towns are arising on an almost daily basis.  The vast majority of these issues come about as a result of an unwillingness to abide by normal societal standards, standards that ALL residents are expected to adhere to regardless of race, creed, color, religion, disability or sexual identity.

We are organizing in an effort to stave off further quality of life erosion, return Ocean County to her majestic stature and to demand from our elected officials that ALL RESIDENTS comply with local, county, state and federal law . Lakewood in Jackson Lakewood in Brick Lakewood in Toms River
