UPDATE: Toms River Chabad Hearing To Be Rescheduled

We are reblogging this post and thank its authors. The problem, described here and in the articles that preceded it, is not limited to the Toms River area but is similar in East Ramapo, Monroe-Woodbury and so on. In East Ramapo, the different Hasidic sects are diverse. The Twersky family can be found in New Square. The Satmar are in Monsey and further north in Kiryas Joel. But the issues are largely similar: zoning violations, voting blocks, blockbusting, destruction of public education, manipulation of public health and welfare services. – LostMessiah, March 1, 2016

Toms River certainly has been getting its share of haredi headaches lately.Chabad-Toms-River-house  The rural town has been trying to combat aggressive haredi real estate buying tactics from nearby Lakewood.  And their local Chabad rabbi, Rabbi Moshe Gourarie, has already shown the town that he has little or no regard for their local zoning laws.

A town meeting last December drew over 1,200 participants to determine if Gourarie should be allowed a permit to operate a Chabad Jewish Center on his seven-acre property which contains a 5,500-square-foot main house and a 1,400-square-foot garage.  Gourarie’s Chabad is a nonprofit organization, and he does not pay taxes on the property, where he and his family also live (a familiar scenario in the Chabad House business model).  Nearly 5,000 people have signed a petition opposing the application of the permit.

Ashbury Park Press has a detailed history of the Toms River Chabad…

  1. Chashdan, the suspicious one… We are not sure why you are amazed that we have decided to carry the torch for Shmayra. There is much talk of the sale of his site, talk within the Orthodox community in Manhattan and Rockland, conspiracy theories and stories to tell, some rather cagey. We hope to uncover what forces silenced him and why. For now, we can look to the past, the present and the future in the hopes of finding answers. Should you want to help keep us informed, correct information you feel may have been incorrect, either in their original posting or their re-posting, we would be happy to listen. For now, perhaps set aside your Chashdanut. There is much to be learned.
