This proposed 16,350 square foot house of worship would require
65% more land than owned to meet the legal requirements.
The structure would be too big, too high, too wide, too close to neighbors,
and without a major variance, would not be legal.

The next Millburn zoning hearing, regarding the Chai Center variance request, will be Monday, December 20th, 2nd floor, Millburn Town Hall, 7:30 p.m. until 11 p.m.

There will be no January meeting and then there will be a meeting February 7th followed by March 28th.


The 7th meeting of the Zoning Board was held on November 15th and the entire 7-10:30pm period was dedicated to the Chai Center case. Most of this meeting was a continuation of cross examination by lawyers of the Chai Center "expert" traffic witness Elizabeth Dolan.


Then, residents were allowed to ask questions of the witness followed by the members of the Zoning Board. For many of the specific questions about parking and added traffic read what the various reporters published. When the traffic expert was finally excused (she appeared in three consecutive session), the Rabbi was cross examined again.  

The lawyers for The Concerned Neighborhood Association of Millburn Township were intent on showing that the Rabbi has intentions of growing his congregation well beyond the current membership. Rabbi Bogomilsky said he was only willing to be at these hearings because of a lawsuit with the township. The settlement of the lawsuit required they seek zoning approval for a place to pray, he said. "It was a mess," he said of the lawsuits. "We're taking it one step and a time and we'll see what happens." The Rabbi said they had not attempted to raise capital to build the large 16,350 structure and would wait until they had zoning board approval to do that. He did say they had the funds to continue their legal case which is now in the 7th month of hearings. Other questions of the Rabbi and his responses can be found in the news stories printed below or on our website at savemillburn.com under the under the Media/Press section
