Q. (See question 2949 above). Thanks for your fast and reasonable answer. We have an additional question. Before we bought our property, we were able to change the established zoning- by-laws to permit a place of worship. When the church acquired the neighboring site, they had not applied yet for school building allowance in that area. Our lawyer, suggested that we may now contend the permit to allow a school to be built there. There is a fair chance we may be successful and they may just build a church or maybe it is possible that they may just sell and go somewhere else. What does Horav Miller think is our best option?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that a careful assessment by knowledgeable real-estate lawyers as to the real chances of stopping the permit is firstly necessary. If there is plausible doubt of success, it may be better and wiser not to fight the school building permit, since it may create a great amount of harmful animosity and detrimental future hostility, if they do succeed and stay.”
Rabbi A. Bartfeld as advised by Horav Shlomo Miller and Horav Aharon Miller Shlit’a
