Last week a yeshiva operating in a residential area was shut down by Lakewood township. The township manager said he shut down the yeshiva after he was contacted by the APP about neighbors complaints regarding the property. Yeshiva Meor hatorah came to the planing board asking for change of use, the board voted 4-3 to deny the request, a report in the APP said "Board members John Franklin, David Hibberson, Justin Flancbaum and Eugene Cautillo voted with the majority, while Israel Grunberger, Yechiel Herzl and Louie Follman voted in the minority. Michael Neiman, the board’s chairman, abstained." Audio starts at 1:05.
