Bnos Melech Purchases New Building

PHOTOS: Bnos Melech girls’ elementary school, one of Lakewood ’s outstanding mosdos, was founded in 2004 by Rabbi Zev Yehoshua Hess and under the guidance of the Menaheles Rebbetzen Kreindy Sorotzkin, has grown from a dozen girls to an enrollment of over 450.

The school, for the past few years, has been located in three locations; in the Bais Shaindel building as well as in trailers in Bais Rivkah Rochel and on High Street.

“The current location is simply not adequate to continue housing the school, which currently has eight grades with many parallel classes, and thus with much Siyata D’shmaya a suitable new home for the school has been located and is in currently in contract for purchase”, the school said.

“The new building, located at 550 James Street , is a twenty one thousand square foot edifice, which will be renovated to provide a conducive atmosphere for the girls to learn and flourish. The move will be done in two phases, the first of which will include the addition of a second floor onto the building, the second which will include additions to the entire building”.

“Dedication opportunities are available for the new building, as well as for the naming rights of the school and for other aspects of this wonderful Mosad Hachinuch”.

  1. I am very happy this school found a suitable location. I wish it wasn’t along the James corridor which is already very congested. I would much rather have these commercial locations house the businesses they were built for, that would be 10-15 cars daily instead of the 200-300 on carpool days and all the additional busses.

  2. Schools have to be located somewhere people. It doesn’t matter whether it’s an industrial park, a residential area, greenspace, commercial/retail, whatever, but you’re always going to lose ratables. If there was any real demand for locations in the industrial parks in Lakewood, the schools couldn’t afford the properties in the first place…

  3. “a suitable location”
    A school with one way in and one way out on a very bad curve at the base of a hill on James street. Very poor location to be pulling out of with buses and vehicles Blind spots in all directions. An accident location waiting to happen IMO Pray that no one gets hurt.

  4. the fact is that the schools are needed
    no one can argue with that
    and these schools do not belong in a resadential area for neumorous reasons
    so where else should they go ?
    as far as taxes they werent paying before they bought this building either
    so why all the complaing now that they bought it !

  5. i think the schools are actually good for all the buissness in industrial park as it has been decling in the last 5-10 years with more buildings becoming available and now it will bring more people to our buissness

    so all the schools keep on coming !

  6. Many of the Buildings in the Industrial Park are Outdated.High ceilings , super-smooth concrete floors and Green tech are in; which along with the economy,results in empty Buildings. With that being said,intelligent planning is needed to balance our very important tax ratable and source of employment with the great need for school space. Let’s not shoot ourselves in the Foot with Narrow,shortsited planning

  7. this is why we don’t get any companies moving into the industrial park. who would want to operate an industrial building near school aged children. the first time the child starts growing an extra toe or green skin the blame will be placed onto the industrial companies. leave the industrial park for industry stop putting education buildings in there. i think the jewish community needs to start thinking about reducing and start combining schools, there is no reason to have 75 private schools in lakewood.
