Tuesday’s Flooding Mostly Spared the Rebbe’s Library

A heavy rainstorm that struck New York City late Monday night caused flooding throughout Brooklyn and Queens, including at Chabad Headquarters 770 and the Central Library. Thankfully, the seforim sustained only minor damage due to a newly installed water draining system. Full Story, Photos, Video

Milder winters, more frequent flooding with longer periods of droughts, hotter summers…

I know global warming isn’t true, but imagine it was, things would be so much worse!

If New York actually took care of the infrastructure so that rainwater drained properly.

This hurricane season was supposedly going to be, like, the worst ever due to climate change.

Didn’t happen, B”H.

…fewer hurricanes (there have been no major ones yet this year). Did you forget that, or are you deliberately ignoring it?

This is a precious possession
It’s upsetting to hear about this issue once again
Maybe seforim should be moved above ground or a backup generator installed

Do more

Water draining system is great but they need to think of something else. Instead of paying money to restore seforim over and over maybe use the money to keep them in water safe environment. Maybe move the library out of the basement and get a new room for them. It makes no sense to have priceless treasures where they are in danger of flooding over and over.

battery backup????
