Lakewood Planning Board Approves Cross Street Campus for Rabbi Strickman’s Yeshiva

The Lakewood Planning Board has given approval to Yeshiva Gedolah of South Jersey, led by Rav Shalom Strickman, for the building of a new campus at 105 Newport Avenue, off of Cross Street.

The yeshiva, which is geared toward post-Eretz Yisroel bochurim, is currently located in a small structure at 411 Cross Street, but the need for a fully functioning yeshiva campus has grown with each year since being founded a decade ago.

The yeshiva plans to erect a main yeshiva building with a bais medrash, classrooms, and a 2,200 square foot banquet hall/dining room, as well as a second 528 square foot dining room. The yeshiva also plans to tear down an existing structure on the property to build a dormitory. Additionally, the plans call for the construction of two residential homes on the property for the use of yeshiva faculty.

  1. The Banquet Hall will actually be a total of 4,052 square feet (not including the two men/women coatrooms) – which is HUGE – after phase 2 (adding another 1844 SF) is complete.

    Best of luck to the neighbors getting in/out of their driveways.
