  1. Finally, some wonderful news during such a difficult time! How lucky these builders are to have the zchus of building the largest yeshiva ktana in america. Think how much torah these walls will absorb!

  2. Mazel Tov to the administration behind the new Cheder School. It looks spacious and safe, as preparations are made for the students in the Fall.

    The location is good, and I wish faculty and students well.

  3. Mazel Tov on the new Cheder Building. Ray Builders is the Best and especially with Seth Haber Supervising the work, it will be done on time and efficiently.

  4. why they dont build a school for us as lakewood student at lakewood high school everything is for them and for them will we suffer from the heat in our school when summer is coming there setting ina class room with air and we suffer….

  5. To “macho kenn”

    Brains?? Any building done here is PRIVATELY funded. In our community we have very generous individuals. You can try replicatiing it in your own community. I am saddened to hear that you will not have air conditioning(although I highly dobt you are being truthful on that). Don’t forget however that we pay for whatever you do have -through our property taxes. We barely get anything from funds allocated to education. More than 60% of property taxes in Lakewood go towards the BOE. Educate yourself before posting.

  6. “”At 218,000 per s/f with a tax rate of $2.308 per $100 that amounts to over $258,500 per year in lost revenue to the township,”

  7. #11 look at number 9 question. Is it not true, that lakewood school system is being taken away piece by piece? Should we not share and share alike?
