Lakewood, NJ – As part of what New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is calling a “new era” for the state’s institutions of higher learning, Lakewood yeshiva Beth Medrash Govoha has been approved for $10.6M to build a library and a research center.
NJ.com (http://bit.ly/ZjWqhD) reports that a total of $1.3B has been approved for 176 construction projects in schools across the state.
Christie said the sweeping overhaul is aimed at keeping New Jersey’s “best” and “brightest” in-state, while attracting new research and business partners who will bring new and better paying jobs.
The projects will now head to the state Legislature for further consideration.
