Crown Heights is a living thing. Crown Heights is a growing place. Crown Heights is our home.
And Crown Heights is expanding, with Nosson’s Shul, a thriving community established in memory of Nosson Deitsch obm, set to purchase a new property in South Crown Heights.
Established 11 years ago by a group of friends, Nosson’s Shul has since blossomed into a home of Torah, Tefillah, and Gemilas Chassadim.
“For the past eleven years, Nosson’s Shul has lived, grown, and expanded beyond our imagination,” says Shul Rabbi, Rabbi Chaim Yisroel Wilhelm. “And now it’s time to build our future.”
By Hashgacha Protis, a beautiful property on the corner of Brooklyn and Midwood has become available, Wilhelm says. More than simply a “class Shul,” this corner space will BE”H serve as a center for the fast-growing South Crown Heights community.
With development, the building will house a gorgeous Shul, classrooms for Shiurim and children’s programs, a comfortable social hall, kitchen, library, and play areas. The space also boasts parking and apartments on the upper floors that could house guests, or serve as a source of income for the community center.
“This is what we’ve been dreaming about,” said Mendy Wilhelm, the Shul’s president. “We have the opportunity to buy a property for the shul and community at large, in the heart of South Crown Heights. We will serve the entire community with davening, classes, events, programming and more.”
The Shul is asking the community to help build this future center that will benefit the entire community. The downpayment is $500,000, half of which has already been raised from a number of generous individuals and families, they said.
On Tuesday 29 Iyar, May 11, at noon, Nosson’s Shul is launching a 48-hour Charidy campaign to raise the full downpayment needed. Every dollar given will be matched 2x by those generous souls.
Help Nosson’s Shul raise the remaining $250,000.
The campaign is called: NOSSON MEANS GIVE! Please go to charidy.com/nossonsshul to give what you can and help us build our future, build our life!
Moreover: Nosson/נתן is Gematria 500! Please help us raise our 500k to honor Nosson! What better way to hasten the Geulah than by building the future of our Yiddishkeit together!
