There are discussions in the works that could lead to some construction taking place within Lakewood Township come 2023.

Congregation Ohr Yisroel Saba Kadisha Druzhin, Inc. on Madison Avenue in Lakewood had applied in 2019 to construct a two story synagogue and will again have their case heard by the Lakewood Township Planning Board during a public hearing set for January 10, 2023 at the municipal building.

The synagogue would include what is called a mikvah in the Jewish faith, which is a spiritual, ritual bath for women, according to NPR.

The current proposal would have the two story synagogue with a mikvah located along East County Line Road with the R-15 Single Family Residential Zone and include parking on site as well.
