First shabbos Bris held at the old shul
A milestone occasion took place this past shabos in the Old shul of Lakewood. The Old shul as it is called headed by its current Rav, Rabbi Yoffe, was built in the early 1900's. It was the original congregation sons of Israel before the kehilla built another shul on 6th and Madison avenue. It is the oldest shul in Lakewood. Up until this past shabbos the shul never hosted a shabbos Bris since there was no Eruv in the area and people could not bring their baby to shul. A few years a go a new Eruv was constructed in the vicinity of the shul and beyond enabling this opportunity. This shabbos the shul was host to a shabbos bris the first in its long rich history.
