Private Jewish school in Monsey found to operate illegally

Facility’s certificate of occupancy expired years ago, has multiple fire code violations


SUFFERN – A private Jewish school in Monsey has been found to be operating illegally, according to the Town of Ramapo. Court documents released by Ramapo officials reveal Yeshiva is remaining open even though its temporary certificate of occupancy expired years ago. A recent motion filed by the Town of Ramapo against Congregation Bais Chunuch Ateres Bnos argues the facility is operating illegally.

The facility has also had multiple fire code violations over the last six months, including a faulty water supply to the site, exposed electrical wires, holes in the walls, and missing tiles, according to the town's building inspector.

Currently, the town is filing to have the school shut down indefinitely until they can correct its zoning issues. The matter is still before a state Supreme Court judge.

A town fire inspector is currently at the school on Tuesday for a second check after various violations were found in July.
