The township of Jackson, New Jersey, had decided to settle a lawsuit that accused them of creating an ordinance in 2017 that bans dormitories sought to keep out yeshivas.

Based on the settlement made public on Wednesday, the township is ordered to replace the 2017 ordinance with one that allows “religious elementary and secondary schools, religious higher learning institutions, and religious, residential schools.”

The latest legal move is important to the Jewish community since the township borders Lakewood, home to a large and fast-growing Orthodox Jewish community.

Based on the lawsuit, the township sought to stem the flow of Orthodox residents into the town with the ordinance.

According to reports, aside from repelling the ordinance, the settlement includes a payment of $200,000, with $150,000 set aside for anyone harmed by the ordinance.
