    There seem to be so many people helping them move…these people don’t give tzedakah?

    I am willing to organize a group of people to match the community’s contributions to get the building or another building but the community members must be involved

    does not make sense that this should happen
    but let’s hope that every arida is for the sake of an Aliya

    Several years ago, our community also went through this on the same day, enough distraction!

    I can’t believe this happened on Tisha B’av. May Hashem give Rabbi Yossi Korf many brochos as I know he has many balei Teshuva and he deserves revealed good.

    Hoping that this is a stepping stone for a bigger and more precious community. When a door closes another opens.

    Aren’t there other Chabad Houses thay can help this community? From the pictures it seems like it was a very modest moised and there’s got to be more affluent moisdes that can help?

    To comment number one: why would you accuse the shuls community of not helping financially? Do you realize how much half a million dollars is. Both my husband and I work the limit and can give at most 1-2,000 a year to put shul over the whole year. It is admirable that you are offering to help but unless you know for sure dont assume it’s members didn’t do everything possible to save the shul they love.

    I cried at seeing this. The whole of world Jewry was mourning on this day when your Mikdash Me’at was dismantled. May it be HaShem’s Will that you will speedily find a better and more beautiful place to rebuild. Chazak veamatz!

    I do not know al of the circumstances. I know you have tried and tried. Eviction is not new to Jews. That doesn’t make it any easier. It is like saying to someone at the loss of a loved one, “he or she lived a great life.” You will grieve. G-d will open doors when you least expect it. It is time for reflection and to give yourself some time to process. I am deeply sorry r your loss.
