It looks like Jewish rituals are being used as the latest weapons in the ongoing legal battle between the National Council of Young Israel and its affiliate and tenant, the Young Israel of Fifth Avenue.
Last week the NCYI tried to bar YIFA from using a meeting room for Yom Kippur services.
The board of directors of the National Council of Young Israel has voted again to sell its longtime Manhattan headquarters to a condo developer for $5.4 million.
The approval comes days after a state Supreme Court justice nullified a previous board vote by one of the nation's largest Orthodox membership groups for not being conducted properly.
Tuesday night's vote was 18-1 with one abstention, according to NCYI attorney Ken Fisher. It took place at an hourlong closed meeting at Abigael's restaurant in Manhattan.
The Beth Din of America has disqualified the rabbinic court of the National Council of Young Israel from settling a dispute with one of its affiliate congregations over the proposed sale of NCYI's Manhattan headquarters to a residential developer for $5.3 million.
