The school, under the auspices of Rabbi Baruch Sher, moved from Manalapan to Lakewood just last year.
Rabbi Sher, an alumnus of the Yeshivos of Peekskill and Derech Chaim opened Bais Yaakov of Western Monmouth County. Originally, the school’s primary goal was to provide a quality chinuch to families of the area. However, as the school’s reputation grew, it soon attracted families from Lakewood as well as from the Staten Island kollel community.
The school was forced to close due to funding issues.
“I’m Makir Tov to Hashem I was able to touch all the lives we did over the past seven years,” Rabbi Sher said.
Rabbi Sher, clearly distraught over the closure, says he hopes to use his Koches to continue serving Klal Yisroel.
Askonim are working on placing the children in other schools.
