Since Moshe Dovid Persltein purchased 71 East Connecticut Concourse in September 2019 he has performed construction without permits, refused entry to inspectors, received multiple summonses for the illegal construction, for failure to register as a landlord and for an illegal change of use from residential to a house of worship. So bad are things that the township refuses to issue a certificate of occupancy for the property.
Despite the best efforts of the township, going so far as to file a lawsuit in Superior Court seeking an order to show cause why the the house of worship should not be ordered closed, the property continues to be used 3 times per day, six days per week. In short, Perlstein and his uncle Shmuel have made false representations to the court, continue to defy township officials and above all else, have demonstrated a callous disregard for their neighbors.
Brookwood 4 is a perfect example of where such activities upend entire neighborhoods and must not be allowed. With houses sitting on under 1/4 acre lots, neighbors are forced to listen to singing and stomping well into the night, streets are clogged with vehicles parked in an unsafe manner, all in violation of zoning!

Contractors performing construction without permits, some of whom described the work as “we gutted the place and built a synagogue upstairs”.
Slowly but surely the FOR SALE signs have gone up and continue to go up along East Connecticut Concourse driven by fear and angst
False representations made to the court lead to denial of township request for a restraining order to prevent further use of the property.
7 inspectors spent just over two hours conducting a court ordered inspection finding multiple violations.
Services continue despite five open matters in municipal court, three for change of use violations and two for rental code violations and no C.O.
Why continue the pressure? There is no more egregious example of defiant behavior and contempt for residents than here.
