FIRST REPORT: Jackson To Pay Agudah $2.2 Million, Pass Ordinances As Part Of Settlement

Lakewood Alerts has obtained the settlement agreement between Jackson Township and Agudath Israel of America, which was recently agreed to following seven years of legal wrangling.

Under the terms of the settlement, Jackson is required to pay Agudath Israel $2.2 million and pass ordinances that will ease the process of establishing schools, shuls, dorms, and mikvaos in Jackson.

Those ordinances were scheduled to be voted on at a Jackson Council meeting this Tuesday, but the meeting was postponed until December 12th at the Jackson High School Auditorium due to the large crowd.

Additionally, the settlement’s jurisdiction is federal court, so if anyone wants to challenge it legally, they would have to go to federal court to do so.

The full settlement agreement can be read by clicking the links below.
