Mosdos Sanz Klausenberg Expired Permits Complaint Filed

The Town of Ramapo has filed a complaint against Mosdos Sanz Klausenberg of Monsey in regards to expired building permits at the Eckerson Lane Yeshiva at 8 Eckerson Lane in Monsey. The school presently operates out of a house and classroom trailers while building a permanent school. Three years ago a congregation opened the school without building approvals. They later received permission from Ramapo Chief Building Inspector Anthony Mallia to operate the house and the trailers. Both permits expired July 2015 and to date no permanent school has been completed. Court papers filed on April 5th in State Supreme Court in New City, state that Mosdos Sans Klausenberg is illegally operating a school in violation of town zoning. The town also alleges that the congregation converted the attic into classroom space. According to sources, Eckerson Lane residents have been angry with the town over the permits issued to build a school in their neighborhood. Rabbi Abraham Spitzer in an e-mail to The Journal News said the congregation will be seeking a building permit to proceed with construction. Ramapo says Mosdos Sans Klausenberg and seven other schools had received permits to operate temporary trailer classrooms. To date, six of the schools are operating with expired permits.
