West Houston’s campaign to finish their Chabad House in the wake of Harvey.
Today, Chabad West Houston is launching a 28-hour crowdfunding campaign to raise $180,000 to finish and furnish their Chabad House.
In the past year, Rabbi Dovid Goldstein and his wife, Elisa, embarked on a project to create a permanent community center. The majority of the work had already been completed when Hurricane Harvey struck. The Goldsteins immediately turned their focus to helping everyone—from families to inmates—recover.
“We believe that no Jew should be left behind,” Rabbi Goldstein explained. “If regular Jewish people are struggling to get kosher food and supplies after Harvey, the situation is even worse for guys in prison.”
Now, the community is joining forces to finish what they started, plowing forward on the final touches of a dynamic community center—showing that no force of nature can overwhelm the Jewish spirit.
Contributions will enable Chabad West Houston to purchase basic, essential items for its new building, including chairs, desks, bookshelves and technology.
