Local shliach Rabbi Yosef Freiman was very excited. “We can divide our activities here into two halves – before 770, and after,” he said.
Construction work on the neighborhood of Chalomot Zichron began a year ago. The 770 building, which is in its entrance, will welcome all visitors.
“Every shliach dreams of building a replica of 770,” says Rabbi Freiman. “We have received very heartwarming reactions from around the world. People feel very connected to what this building represents.”
Rabbi Freiman is sure that when the new shul opens in the 770 building, Chabad activities in the city will only increase.
Doron, the building supervisor, remarked, “For me, building a replica of 770 in New York right here in Zichron Yaakov closes a circle.”
