[Video and photos below.] The latest development in the continued expansion of Beth Medrash Govoha, North America’s largest yeshiva, is the opening this week of Bais Aron, a beautiful and large bais medrash on Tenth Street in Lakewood, NJ.
The bais medrash, which can accommodate approximately 1,000 people, has been dedicated by noted Torah supporter R’ Moshe Kalter and family in memory of R’ Moshe’s father, Rav Aron ben Rav Eliyahu Yehudah Hakohen Kalter z”l. The Bais Aron bais medrash is located adjacent to BMG’s Bais Shalom Bais Medrash, also dedicated by the Kalter family in memory of Mrs. Kalter’s father, Rav Shalom ben Rav Aryeh Leibish Fogel z”l.
The stunning new building features a comprehensive otzar haseforim and other amenities.
With the opening of the new bais medrash, the Israel Henry Beren Hall dining room on the main BMG campus, which had been used as a bais medrash for many years, has now been restored for full use as a dining facility. The opening of the new building comes less than a year after the inauguration of BMG’s Kleinman Campus on Forest Avenue (see here and here).
