Yeshiva in Waterbury will buy high rise

4 posts in this topic

It is amazing how fast the orthodox Jewish community has grown in Waterbury and what a great thing that is for the city. Back in 2001 the city made an agreement that they could use the old Uconn campus on Hillside Avenue if they could bring in 100 families. They started with just nine families in 2000 and have since passed the 100 family mark. They recently purchased an apartment building to house students from the Yeshiva.

"The Orthodox Jewish rabbinical school Yeshiva Gedolah will quiet an uproar over illegal student dormitories in the Hillside and Overlook neighborhoods by purchasing a nine-story apartment building on Pine Street for use as student housing."

That's a great article. I knew when that community first relocated to Waterbury that it would be good for the city. It's encouraging that they have taken root so quickly and seem to truly consider Waterbury home and a place that they want to improve and contribute to.
