Klausenberger Kehilla Moves into Grand new Beis Medrash this Week
By: Yitzy Fried
After a number of years of construction of a large Beis Medrash overlooking Monsey’s Main Street, the Klausenberger Kehillah will move into the ready shul for this Shabbos, Parshas Ki Seitzei.
The project was accompanied with great siyatta diShmaya, according to askonim involved with the work.
The Beis Medrash was founded close to forty years ago, when Monsey was a far less populated place, and had occupied a space on Main Street since the beginning. For decades it was housed in a renovated home, and with the expansion of the kehillah, the need became acute for a new building. It was a massive undertaking which took and number of years, and is now being completed.
Adequate parking on Main Street of today, however, is a near impossibility, and certainly not enough to accommodate all those wishing to come daven and learn in the shul. Which made the acquisition of a large property for a parking lot directly across the street—in a sale facilitated by the Tessler Team—all the more Providential.
As the Yomim Nora’im approach, the Davenings will take place in a sprawling and magnificent new shul, sure to elevate the tefillos to an exalted place On High.
