PHOTOS & VIDEO: 1,200 children this afternoon took part in a Hachnosas Sefer Torah at the new Lakewood Cheder building on Vassar Avenue. The event celebrated the opening of the new 218,000 square foot warehouse-turned school, which is now home to one of the first – and largest – school in Lakewood.
The 218,000 square foot building purchased for about $6,000,000 and situated on 13 acres in Industrial Park, houses all classes from Primary through 8th grade as well as a Bais Medrash and a gym.
The event, attended by many Rabbonim and officials, took place inside the school due to the rain.
Music was provided by Yehoshua Ausfresser.
