Board OKs Yeshiva at Illegal School Site

By Steve Lieberman, The Journal News

RAMAPO — A Hasidic Jewish congregation that ran an illegal school on Route 306 where a calf was slaughtered has received zoning variances from Ramapo to build a two-story yeshiva on the same property.

Area residents were disappointed that Bobover Yeshiva of Monsey passed muster with the Zoning Board of Appeals in a 4-1 vote.

Other residents spoke out on behalf of allowing the two-story school, with a maximum height of 24 feet, for no more than 200 students in 15 classrooms. The students are 7 to 13 years of age, as well as prekindergarten age.

The congregation proposed a smaller project than the one suggested last year, which was rejected for safety and health concerns.

The approval for the school comes on the heels of Ramapo's approving a four-story dormitory school on nearby Babcock Lane and the development of nearly 500 houses on the former Patrick Farm property. A large rabbinical school with dorms also is being proposed in the area, but remains stalled in federal court.

Under New York state and federal laws, municipal planning and zoning boards are hard-pressed to opposed religious schools and houses of worship.
