PHOTOS: Bobov 45 Signs Deal To Purchase The Boro Park YM-YWHA


Bobov 45 Signed a Deal to Purchase The Boro Park YM-YWHA located on 14th Ave. and 50th Street. Bobov 45 currently owns the corner Lot on 14th Ave. and 49th Street.

Bobov 45 will Build their new shul on the Square Block from 49th Street till 50th Street on 14th Ave, which will become the Largest Shul in New York City. The Lot is a 200×200 including the former Balkany Building on 49th Street off the 14th Ave corner. The plans have already been filed with the Building Department.

Yesterday, Wednesday at 6:00PM the Board Members of The Boro Park YM-YWHA had a meeting with Bobov 45 Kehilah, and approved the sale with an overwhelming majority. Out of 22 Votes, 16 Members Voted to Approve the Sale of the Facility to Bobov 45, while only 6 members opposed the Sale.

A L’chaim was held right after the deal was finalized at the home of the Bobover Rebbe-45. The L’chaimwas followed by dancing with music at the Bobov 45 Yeshiva to celebrate this huge milestone.

This comes just a few days, after Bobov 45 celebrated the rededication of the massive 150,000 square ft. girls school building in Boro Park as reported on YWN.


  1. Wow it looks like Bobov 45 is quite successful.
    Is Bobov 48 being matzliach too? Or they not growing as strongly?
    (Just wondering, please not asking to start machloikes)

  2. Mazel Tov. What happens to the Y? It serves the community with many services. Will they open also in a brand new
    building? That would be terrific

  3. The Sketch of the New Shul looks huge a full sqaure block on 14ave, its very interesting that till today no Shul in entire NYC is big a square block, even the big Satmar Shul in Williamsburg and Bobov 48st Shul are also not big a Square Block,
    After Bobov 45st will build such a huge shul, other rebbes will try to compete and build a bigger shul…

  4. The Y , being a non- profit , and a necessary institution for seniors and many holocaust survivors , should definitely build a more up-to-date replacement facility with their windfall…
    Many seniors and holocaust survivors depend on the Y to keep them occupied and enhances their quality if life ; hence the necessity to rebuild in the area,..

  5. Interesting.
    Isn’t it owned by Klausinburger Rabbi?
    From where does he Suddenly have money for such a lot? Most probably costed 20 25 million?

  6. Wow!!! Jews!! Some really hatefull imfarginer comments!! It’s really sick!! You should all go out and take a full time job!! And let every rebbe have what they need.
    Less hatred will certainly bring the geula closer

  7. Will they also build a parking lot? Or just line the streets with school buses and double parked cars? No issue with building a large beautiful shul, big issue with inconveniencing others.

  8. For how much?
    Years ago, I was unemployed and wanted to join the Y , their only question was if I was Russian. As I said no, they wanted me to pay.

  9. The Y is reasonably well endowed and will use these funds to purchase/develop a new facility in BP in several years. In the interim, it will continue operating. The cost of making needed repairs to the existing building and bringing it up to code (especially ADA related changes) was apparently prohibitive.
