Is Rise Up Ocean County Encouraging Violence?


Like it or not, hate speech is free speech. But violence, advocating violence or incitement is illegal.

As we all know, Rise Up Ocean County is an anti-Semitic group. Perhaps they started out on a journey to save the environment, limit traffic, save forests and reduce housing but they spiraled into an all-out offensive against the Jews.

Welcome to Golus.

What is concerning, to say the least, is: Recently Rise Up members have begun, what appears to be, promoting violence. Rise up admins at times go along and ‘like’ the comments, and at times try to calm it down. (Keep in mind, if you argue with them you get blocked) They have about 9 admins, so some may be more extreme than others…

Below, you see an admin likes the post.

Authorities from multiple agencies were contacted and GreaterLakewood can confirm an investigation is currently underway.

As reported previously on GreaterLakewood:

Here is a list of things ‘Rise up’ does to help with ‘over-populating Lakewood.’ Rise up…..

  • Takes photos of kids playing in playgrounds – creepy
  • Used Nazi Poems to describe Lakewood – they apologized
  • Volunteer for the fire and building inspectors, by writing down and reporting wherever they see multiple little kids going into a house for playgroup/daycare – Rise up themselves can’t report it but they encourage the group to. Note: Lots of details are given by local bus drivers that ‘know what’s going on and see it every day’.
  • Allegedly blackmailed the Jackson Mayor in order to not pass a resolution against them, they later removed the alleged blackmail but not before we saved screenshots – GreaterLakewood passed the findings on to the Attorney General’s office who found it ‘interesting’. ..
  • Disparages the Jewish morning prayer, one that has been said and will be said for thousands of years – Township officials were sent links to our story on it and expressed shock.
  • Is very concerned about R’ Eisemann’s trial and finds him guilty of theft – although the jury did not. – All in the name of ‘overpopulating lakewood’ – somehow.
  • Claims to not be aware of all the posts on their page and feels they have no responsibility for words written by other members on their page – legally incorrect. In addition, they have about 9 anonymous admins, so there is a solid chance one of the ‘members writing a post’ is one of them.
  • Implies multiple times that Jewish developers caused an elderly couple at fairways to get beat up – When all else fails, blame the Jews.
  • Gets info from some מתיונים וערב רב we have more information on that but cannot publish it at this time.
  • Makes up stories about Kids being left in cars to die & implies Jews drove over an African American kid on purpose – almost 20 years ago.
  • Is very concerned about our children’s safety taking pictures of buses driving quickly or doing anything they feel is ‘unsafe’. The only real criteria is: The bus needs to either have Hebrew letters or be from Jays. – even empty buses sometimes make it to their posts, why not!
  • Main admin was apparently locked up before and has a criminal record – very solid evidence due to a small slip up they made.
  • Calls GreaterLakewood Fake news.
  • Tried & failed to ‘bust’ kars-4-Kids
  • Has an obsession with Imperial Real Estate – seeks to find and compose, any and every issue.
  • When they get called out by an individual, they try to dig up dirt – as blackmail
  • Obsesses over ‘illegal’ basements
  • We would be more than happy to meet with any and every member of their group to have a discussion.

  1. Hgaon Reb Eliezer Shach Ztkl taught that the Gemorah explains the posuk of h’yorei v’hrach leyvav refers to someone who talks between tefillin shel yad and tefillin shel rosh. In other words to be effective in war, one must be a true yorei shamayim! Those who want to engage in fighting any milchemes H’shem must be true Ovdei Hashem. As such, the tzibur needs manhigim to establish the strategy. This can not and should not be fought through social media unless so guided by true Dass Torah!

  2. You forgot their obsession with illegal attic apartments being rented out… not sure how they think the tenants get up there, through the landlords house or mary poppins style?

  3. This isn’t so and you know that. Physically organize is to show up. Show up at court, town and county meetings, water company and school board meetings. The more the better to voice against overdevelopment and failing schools and concerns on environment.
    Will you also get the authorities involved because No sense luv. hacked my FB page? Or the fake JacksonStrong and fake RU took only one side of a conversation and posted it to slander? Or cut and pasted to slander?
    What’s happening with the illegal day cares and violations that were written on legal day cares? That would be news.

    • Interesting. Even the rise up admin didn’t agree with you -they wrote riots are not ncessary etc. obviously they took it to mean physical harm. I understand this is a serious potential crime, but the authorities will determine the correct course of action.
      P.s. gallows refers to the soda machine in the township? How do you explain that..

  4. We definitely will not stoop to their level of hate and threats of violence, but every single hateful post should be reported to Facebook and every threat of violence should be reported to law enforcement. History has shown us that when hate is ignored it can become dangerous.
