A judge for the town of Ramapo ordered the removal of students from an illegal school run by the Congregation Ateras Yisroel on Tuesday after Ramapo Fire Safety Inspector Adam Peltz responded to calls of heavy smoke. According to Peltz he and the Monsey Fire Department discovered multiple violations, including a commercial matzo oven resting on cinderblocks in a wooden trailer, which was blocking a handicap ramp. The school on Forshay Road, houses a dormitory for students and has been in court before on violations, failing to appear twice before. The director of the congregation stated that there was a permit for the oven, though it could not be produced in court, and also that the proper paperwork to operate the student housing and school were filed with the Town Planning Board. Justice Alan Simon ordered that the students may not return until all the permits are obtained and the oven had to be shut down, though Peltz worried that after the holiday season of Passover the school would start back up again.
