Page 12 THE VILLADOM TIMES II • April 8, 2009 Glen Rock History lesson Glen Rock Jewish Center recently held a Scholar-in-Residence weekend. Dr. Elisheva Baumgarten (at left), a visiting scholar from Israel, is a social historian who specializes in the history of the Jews in medieval Germany and Northern France.

Hamm then assured Christine Gildea that the Contemporary Club and other local organizations would still be able to hold their holiday gatherings at the inn. Borough business owner Chuck Russo asked if the inn would have a consumption license. Hamm responded that the license agreement would remain in place. In addition to Hamm, the LLC’s members include Andrew, Anna, and Sarah Chapman. Each member of the council spoke on the matter, with Maryellen Lennon, John Mongelli, Doug Troast, and Kevin Crossley endorsing the proposed assignment. Crossley said the inn had been through “bumpy times – no more so than in the last decade.” He added his opinion that the new team would be good for the inn. Commenting on the ethical question, he said, “I feel we’ve done the due diligence.” Troast added, “I see this as an obligation of the council to deal with the transfer.” He said Chris Kelly of Korbitz has the right to request the transfer as long as the new tenant fulfills the obligations of the lease. Troast said the matter was cut and dried, and he favored moving ahead with what he called a reasonable request from Kelly. Randall said the council was very concerned about moving on this resolution in the proper manner. He said discomfort alone was not enough to vote against the assignment, adding that Kelly has contractual rights. The council majority then approved the assignment. The council scheduled last week’s special meeting to permit public input on the matter, which had previously been discussed only in closed session. The borough leased the Ho-Ho-Kus Inn to Intervilla in 1998. Principals Marcello Rusodivito and Franco Moretti ran the business until approximately two years ago, when the lease was assigned to Korbitz. This January the inn closed with an uncertain prospect of reopening. Several weeks ago, Ho-Ho-Kus Inn & Tavern, LLC, sought to assume the lease. The inn is located at 1 East Franklin Turnpike.
