The Board and Directors of Oholei Torah MUST be congratulated for not just keeping a good status quo but striving for better and better!

I hope the rest of the local schools grow jealous and copy!

It takes way more then just being jealous.
And way more then just looking for PR.

The OT board has shown time and again what dedication and hard work can do.

All the blessings to them.

Great news

Amazing!

This is amazing and great step to making OT Mesivta a great option for our boys. But wondering how will shabbos work? Will there be no Yeshiva for intowners or will they all move in for shabbos?

Amazing

This is a huge step BUT I’m very worried about the boys safety walking home at night from that location. We know what is happening in the neighborhood. How can we be assured that when Seder is over the boys will be home safely ?

By bus

Our neighborhood is not a racially divided area.we treat all with respect and expect the same in return. This is so sad to see comments made like this regarding a neighborhood you know nothing about in this day and age..

Why can’t every other school in ch try to even come close to ot this board should take over more things in ch caz it seems like they’re the only people who actually care about what’s actually going on

Oh my!!

Houses in East Flatbush will now rise from $800,000 to $999,000.
East Flatbush houses will soon be unaffordable like houses in Crown Heights.

They already are at 900k-1mil for the bigger ones, and it won’t go too much higher, because there is no subway, so no influx of yuppies bh.

It’s only a 12 min. walk from the subway and a 3 min. walk to a bus stop

Don't forget our girls !!!

Can we get some community members to find alternative measures for our girls. Who are struggling many don’t fit into the regular mainstream Schools.
We need a school in Crown Heights to cater for them, its not a option to send them away.
Girls also need a exercise and gym place they can unwind after a hard day at school.

"alternative measures" for our girls...

Such schools already exist. If you apply necessary diligence you will find them. They are doing commendable work.

Shabbos in Crown Heights
April 26, 2021 9:45 am

For those bochurim who will live at home, maybe they should have the option to have a seder in Crown Heights, Friday night and Shabbos morning, maybe at Troy or Eastern Parkway? Or another Shul.

That’s the plan

That is the plan

so glad this is happening

i always thought about this when my boys were in mesivta. So glad they’re getting a new building. It really makes a big difference in learning and more!
