‘Turn right on Tomchei Tmimim Way.’
Crown Street between Albany and Troy is set to be renamed as ‘Tomchei Tmimim Way’ on Thursday, during the dedication of Lubavitch Yeshiva’s new expansion.
The expansion, announced in Adar 5782, adds an incredible 19,848 square feet of space with a brand new addition to their landmark building. It added space for 6 new classrooms to accommodate another 100 students. It also includes 3 resource rooms for tutors, and a beautiful new shul for the older grades to daven together, a music room, a recreation room, and a staff lounge. To top it all off, the expanded roof includes a state-of-the-art indoor gym with a full-sized basketball court that will double as a multi-purpose auditorium.
While the expansion was no secret, there was another project being worked on behind the scenes: The renaming of Crown St., which houses the Yeshiva, to ‘Tomchei Tmimim Way’.
The exciting surprise remained a secret until this week, and only became public this week when an official schedule of street closures in the Crown Heights community was published.
