Shul News: Residents of Sherman Oaks in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley are suing Chabad of North Hollywood to stop the renovations on their shul. Work on the partially built structure has been suspended until the case is settled. The residents say that the proposed 12,000-square-foot building being squeezed onto a 9,568-square-foot parcel zoned for residential use is just too big for the surrounding blocks of single-family homes.

Chabad of North Hollywood Construction Halted by Neighbors

Monday, June 18th, 2012

Dozens Sherman Oaks residents are complaining that the new Chabad House on Chandler Boulevard is “just too big for the surrounding blocks of single-family homes, some starting at more than $1 million,” the LA Times reports.

The new building is slated to be 12,000 square feet, on a 9,568-square-foot parcel which is zoned for residential construction.

According to the Times, plans for the Chabad of North Hollywood are for a structure that will be almost nine times the size of the original structure.

Chabad of North Hollywood says a larger synagogue is required to serve its growing congregation, which on major holidays counts as much as 400 participants.

The project has been halted by litigation, even though last year an appellate court ruled in favor of Chabad.

The project will likely go before a land-use subcommittee, and be returned for a council vote later in June.
