    Lakewood Township is a township in Ocean County, New Jersey, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census the township had a total population of 92,843, representing an increase of 32,491 from the 60,352 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 15,304 from the 45,048 counted in the 1990 Census. The township ranked as the seventh-most-populous municipality in the state in 2010 after having been ranked 22nd in 2000. The sharp increase in population from 2000 to 2010 was led by increases in the township's Orthodox Jewish and Latino communities. Lakewood was incorporated as a township by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 23, 1892, from portions of Brick Township. Portions of Howell Township in Ocean County were annexed to Lakewood Township in 1929. Lakewood is one of the hubs of Orthodox Judaism and is home to one of the largest yeshivas in the world. The large Orthodox population, comprising more than half of the township's population, wields considerable political clout in the Township, commanding a bloc of about 10,000 votes. Lakewood CDP, Leisure Village and Leisure Village East are census-designated places and unincorporated communities located within Lakewood Township.
