Hasidic sect still occupies former Homowack Lodge

The Herald-Record, New York/July 31, 2009

Spring Glen - A Hasidic group continues to defy a state deadline to leave the former Homowack Lodge.

On Thursday afternoon several dozen girls could be seen on the front lawn with several women watching them. There were also about five or six cars parked on the grounds of the camp, which is operated by Congregation Bais Trana, based in Rockland County. Monday, the state Department of Health ordered the camp to close, citing "serious health and safety conditions." The camp opened in early July without a permit.

The DOH said it was weighing its legal options if the site was not completely vacated soon.
