Three years ago, Rabbi Yitzi and Dina Hurwitz appointed Rabbi Yonasan and Natanya Abrams to run operations at Chabad of Temecula, California, as he battles the ALS disease.
Today, to address the current personal and organizational challenges, the Abrams have appointed a new couple to open a preschool.
Rabbi Yaakov and Tiferes Cahnman (nee Perluss) will be moving to Temecula to open a preschool, once the funds have been secured.
Temecula is a fast-growing city in southern California and is attracting many young families because of its affordability, air quality, good public schools and safety.
The Cahnmans will be focusing on reaching out to these young families with the preschool and other early childhood programs.
“This is a major step in the continued growth of Chabad of Temecula and is a greatly needed move at this time,” says Rabbi Yonasan Abrams, who recently spoke at the Kinus Hashluchim in New York.
“We’ve had some personal issues that have tried to set us back, but instead have catapulted us forward,” Abrams said. “Even though we’re not a huge organization yet, this is the right move and we need everyone’s help to ensure that they start out on the right foot.”
Rabbi Yitzi Hurwitz sent a special note of the thanks to COLlive readers, writing, “͞Thank you so much everyone for the outpour of kindness at the Kinus. Please help Chabad of Temecula grow and succeed.”
A Charidy fundraising campaign has been launched to ensure that the new couple can move out by the end of the week. Join now at Charidy.com/Temecula.
Rabbi Abrams noted, “This campaign is vital for Chabad of Temecula but we want to make sure it doesn’t have a negative effect on the Hurwitz Family Fund. If you haven’t yet, please sign up for a monthly donation at hurwitzfamilyfund.com.”
