HISTORY - Founded on Rabbi Shlomo Kanarek's vision

Rabbi Shlomo Kanarek, an original Lakewood businessman and philanthropist, dedicates much of his life to meeting the growing community's ever-pressing need for more schools. With a population growth of 5,000 per year, Lakewood, NJ has repeatedly made headlines as one of the youngest and fastest-growing towns in the United States. Rabbi Kanarek had the foresight to realize that for the community to keep pace with the educational needs of its children, they would need cost-effective, highly efficient school construction.

With this mission in mind, he supported the founding of Regency Development, a professional construction company committed to keeping costs affordable when building school facilities. Rabbi Kanarek understood that school administrators would be too overwhelmed to undertake expansion projects without lots of hand-holding. Yet these classrooms were desperately needed, so that the community's children would not have to suffer rejection.

A quick look at Regency's educational gallery will show you how successful the mission has been. Many school leaders gratefully acknowledge how helpful the team was from the design phase until the final touches.
