BRICK TOWNSHIP — The owner of the former Temple Beth Or site at 200 Van Zile Road is proposing to open a library and learning center there.
Brick Township officials are seeking more information from the owner of the former Temple Beth Or location, after letters were sent back and forth between the township and the potential applicant.
Previously, Congregation Kehilos Yisroel, an ultra-Orthodox organization led by Lakewood developer David Gluck, purchased the building at 200 Van Zile Road from Conservative Jewish congregation Temple Beth Or in 2021.
After purchasing the property, Mr. Gluck and congregation Kehilos Yisroel opened a boys school in the building, but it was shut down because the use was not approved by the Brick Township Planning Board of Adjustment.
The case before the zoning board of the boys school has had no activity for over the last year and could not move forward due to a lack of funds in the escrow account.
