Lenox Jewish Center

5-0 across the Lenox Zoning Board of Appeals! Chabad of the Berkshires, an orthodox synagogue based on South Street in Pittsfield, gained approval to construct a new Jewish Center in Lenox after gaining a special permit for the front parking plan which acknowledges the religious and educational uses of the facility.

LENOX — Chabad of the Berkshires, an orthodox synagogue based on South Street in Pittsfield, will construct a modern center in Lenox, but only after removing a historic house that some feel should be preserved.

The group won backing this week from the Lenox Zoning Board of Appeals. Several residents told the board they support the project, while others questioned the need to tear down an 1862 house — it was named Cozy Nook when built as a residence by the Tucker family — regardless of its condition.

The project would demolish the decrepit but historic property at 17 West St. in the 1-acre residential zone near downtown.

The Lenox Jewish Center plans to offer services and educational programs and will include a residence for Rabbi Levi Volovik, his wife, Sara, and their seven children.
