Mamaroneck, NY – Judge Backs Yeshiva In Battle


    Mamaroneck, NY – A federal judge has ruled in favor of a Jewish day school’s right to expand its campus in Mamaroneck, trumping the village’s zoning code and upholding the constitutionality of a controversial religious land use law.
    The case could be the first of its kind to go to the U.S. Supreme Court, should the village appeal U.S. District Court Judge William Connor’s decision.

    In 2001, the Westchester Day School, a yeshiva for more than 400 students on tony Orienta Point, sought permission to build a 44,000-square-foot building on its 26 acres.
    The case landed in federal court after a series of village hearings, approvals, neighborhood objections, denials, higher court appeals and settlement attempts.
