Kerhonkson, NY - Approximately 1,000 girls at Camp Rav Tov in Kerhonkson heaved a sigh of relief as a temporary restraining order issued by a Brooklyn judge overrode the Ulster County Health Department’s order that would have shuttered the camp a week ahead of the scheduled end of the season.

As previously reported on VIN News, neighbors of the Cherrytown Road camp have been heaving sighs of disgust all summer long, as Rav Tov’s failing septic system has been spewing raw sewage on area roadways, leaving a malodorous smell in the air. 

Unsuccessful efforts to remedy the situation had health commissioner Dr. Carol Smith ordering the camp evacuated by Monday afternoon because it posed a health hazard to both campers and neighbors.

According to a statement released after close of business on Tuesday by the Ulster County Attorney’s Office, the eleventh hour reprieve was granted on Monday prior to the health department’s 5 PM deadline by an unnamed Kings County Supreme Court judge.

A settlement hammered out between Ulster County and the camp after the temporary restraining order was issued will have the camp pumping out and removing all sewage from the facility each day through the end of the summer season on August 22nd, with an independent engineer certifying the camp’s compliance on a daily basis.

Camp Rav Tov will place $40,000 in an escrow account to be used for cleanup should it fail to remove waste as agreed for the duration of this summer and has also agreed to install a county-approved septic system before obtaining any permits for next summer.

Reactions on Facebook to a Daily Freeman story on the camp’s ability to continue its operations ranged from anger to shock, with some voicing opinions that had distinctly religious overtones.

“There [sic] used to living in filth,” wrote Gerard Greaves.

“How can that happen what gas [sic] happened to our legAl [sic] system they [sic] own the governor and the judges,” added Patricia Foster.

Multiple commenters expressed incredulity that a Brooklyn court’s ruling could take priority over the health department’s recommendations.

“Can someone explain how a judge who’s [sic] jurisdiction end [sic] over 60 miles away has any say in the matter?” wrote a user identified as Bacon Poopinn.  “Also I noticed they failed to mention the judges [sic] name. I’d be real curious to know how fair and impartial a judge from Brooklyn is (taking a wild guess at his religious beliefs.)”

Camp Rav Tov and the Ulster County Health Department were not immediately available to comment on the matter.

it is unfair for a Brooklyn court to override a local courts jurisdiction on matters that affect local population.

In the News12 video and others I've seen, they reference raw sewage spilling down onto roads but yet they failed to show any video. So basically something is wrong with this picture. Is it possible it's not totally clean, yes. Is it probable that there's some lying going on here by the goyim in the area, definitely!

This has absolutely nothing to do with the evil designs of someone intent on doing damage to Jews. It has everything to do with an older septic system pushed beyond its limits by a large summer camp. The compromise reached is reasonable for now, but the owners of the camp will probably have to have the system rebuilt in order to use the property again next year. Your use of that possuk for your comment is disingenuous and in poor taste, given the issue under discussion.

Why don't you go there and find out for yourself instead of calling the non-Jews liars and take the Judge with you.

Bottom line (forgive the pun): the Court System won, working out a sensible compromise between all parties. That's their job and what they do when allowed to. The Camp Owners are forced to clean up the mess, now and in the future. Best news: the girls get to stay in Camp in a beautiful area! I know 'cause I live down the derech...

I went on the Daily Freeman website and noticed that they don't add "sic" when a letter writer makes a spelling or grammatical error. Yet you add "sic" when you repeat the letter writer's comments. I gather that it's to disparage the letter writer's intelligence. Considering that most of the letters in the Daily Freeman are articulate, well written, and without spelling or grammatical errors (although we may disagree with them) why you not include those letter?. The grammar and spelling coming out of our community is much worse, so perhaps you can add the "sic" word each time a letter writes makes an error.

Everyone agrees the problem with the sewer system exists and it need to be respired.And it will be.

Having said,anything favorable for Jews especial for frum Jews brings out the worst in people.

Those haters such as "There [sic] used to living in filth,” wrote Gerard Greaves". Hey listen up about the cleanliness and the filth. There is NO such a thing a frum jew that wouldn't wash their hands after using the bathroom.
Whenever i go to rest areas you will see numerous non-Jews leaving the bathroom not washing their filthy hands.

The black plague killed millions of non-Jews becuase of living in filth.

The Judge isn't unnamed: his name is Devin P. Smith. It's just that the reporter was too lazy to get that information. However, it is part of the public record.

I guess the Judge thought throwing over 900 kids into the street was more important than closing the camp, not to mention his concern over esoteric concepts like "due process."

The matter was in Brooklyn because that's the legal address of the camp.

You're a low life imbecile! why are mixing in a camp's issue with the board of health and government programs? First of all most families are eligible for programs. Many learn in kollel and once they begin to work the wife stay's home. Any family with two children earning about $40,000 is eligible for medicaid , food stamps..Second, if you don't want to take programs then don't

The locals blame the camp and campers for the raw sewage. (Is it ever not raw?) Did you catch the name of the last local to post a comment Facebook comment on Daily Freeman? BACON POOPIN. You can't make this stuff up. Look in the mirror (or comode) before blaming others

Baloney!!! & BH this sane Judge from Brooklyn who isn't consumed by the backward redneck hatred saw through the lies & did the right thing.

However thinks that 1,000 parents would let their children stay in a camp under the terrible conditions described by the local yellow rags, needs to have their head examined.

Is your real name maybe Goebbels?? As you are an ignorant redneck low life hoodlum, you probably don't know who he was, let me tell you, he was the vile publisher of the Sturmer, which was the official Nazi newspaper, who slandered the Jewish people with the worst vile libels on a daily basis.
