Son Of Skulener Rebbe Moving To Lakewood To Lead Skulener Chasidus

Skulen_Shul_tls_wmTomorrow will be a day of rejoicing for the Skulener Chasidus of Lakewood, as the Rebbe’s son moves to town. R’ Hersh Noach Portugal Shlita, son of the Skulener Rebbe, will be relocating from Boro Park to lead the Skulener Chasidus and Bais Medrash. Approximately three weeks ago, Skulen got the approvals to build their new Bais Medrash at Princeton Avenue and Kennedy Boulevard.

The construction on the new building is expected to begin in the coming months.

Currently, all T’fillos are held at their temporary Shul, 100 9th Street, in the trailer.

  1. When you don’t listen to the facts it lessens people’s interest in telling them to you. Part of the ability of human intelligence is the ability to compare and contrast. There are reasons why things are allowed and not allowed.

    The numerous postings explaining the GCU’s interest in creating a stadium is the reason for the residents’ opposition. A local synagogue for local residents does not raise residents’ opposition because it is something residents want (at least enough residents who live in the vicinity).

    My voice, if this is something you can’t comprehend then there is no point explaining it further.

  2. Actually GCU can expand, but they cant open up the enterances. It so happened to be, Skullen Shul spent an additional 300k to buy a parking lot so they shouldnt be a burdon on their neighbors! So stop shouting if you have no idea what your talking about!

  3. To To my voice says:
    No you don’t get it ,I’m not posting my oppinion for those like you who only view one side of the issue . There is a blatant bias against others who are not of the same religious beliefs when it comes decissions here in Lakewood and if you can’t see that there is no sense in debating the issue with YOU

  4. lets move on with our prejudice against chasidim, sfardim, modern orthodox, how would we like when the gentiles tell us we don’t belong in a certain neighborhood chasidim are allowed to come to lakewood and build whatever they want

  5. THE ONLY WAY FOR MASHIACH TO COME is if ALL of klal yisroel comes together as one-no matter which group from frum to chasidish to conservative…- for without achdus a person has nothing (without shalom & achdus in a persons home, he has no home)

  6. the traffic that this will cause is going to be horrible kennedy has many schools on this road this is going to cause much unwanted traffic.

  7. I find it hard to believe “The school teacher” came before R’ Rosenbaum ztl and R’ Thumim ztl so sorry they both learned in BMG very well actually.
    A born and bread Lakewooder! 🙂

  8. I’m clueless as to why you didn’t post my reply to #13. That is how it used to be in the BMG beis medrash for real. Check it out. One had to remove the shtreimel before entering.
