Less Purim traffic expected around Lakewood this year

With Yeshivas cancelling their door-to-door collecting and many Purim parties cancelled due to Covid, less traffic is expected this year in Lakewood.

Many of the hundreds of groups which usually make their way around town, will be having Sedarim in their respective Yeshivas instead. Collecting for the most part this year is being done online.

Additionally, many families are staying home for the Purim meals, instead of joining larger events.

However, the Mishloach Manos morning traffic is still expected to cause significant delays around town.

Police say there will also be less street direction changes this year due to the expected lower-than-usual volume, as well as less off-duty hires.
