In a significant development for the residents of Kfar Chabad, the Ministry of Construction and Housing, along with the Israel Land Authority, have approved a large-scale construction project aimed at alleviating the housing shortage in the village.
On Thursday, the chairman of the local committee, Rabbi Shimon Rabinowitz, met with the Minister of Construction and Housing, Rabbi Yitzhak Goldknopf, to express gratitude for his efforts in facilitating the release of the expansion project.
The expansion project in the northern neighborhood of Kfar Chabad had been stalled by the Israel Land Authority 13 years ago, with no progress made since then. However, in today’s meeting held at the office of Minister Goldkenopf, the two discussed the efforts and the imminent progress of the project.
“We have deployed the ‘bulldozers’ of the Ministry of Construction and Housing, including Director-General Yehuda Morgenstern, CEO Yanki Quint, and the Ministry of Housing’s Chief of Staff Moti Babchik, in an unprecedented push to benefit the residents of the village,” stated Minister Goldkenopf during the meeting. He added, “We have brought a blessing into the homes of 58 families who have been stuck for 13 years. Those in the Ministry of Construction and Housing before us did not consider the Charedi community.”
Indeed, the news has already translated into action. The 58 families expected to settle in the expansion area are currently receiving notifications about the significant breakthrough and practical explanations regarding payment methods and upcoming stages, which will be executed in the near future.
Rabbi Rabinowitz expressed his gratitude to the minister and his office for their substantial assistance. He also acknowledged the relentless support provided by the regional council of Sedot Dan, led by Mr. David Yifrach, who held dozens of meetings with the relevant authorities and committed to the development of the area. Deputy Chairman Benyomin Lipshitz and Council CEO Shaul Tzvoni were also praised for their contributions.
“Dozens of families have invested their hard-earned money to build homes in Kfar Chabad, but the project was halted and did not progress. On behalf of the residents of Kfar Chabad and the families who will settle in the expansion area, we deeply thank the minister. In this short period that Minister Goldkenopf has been in his role at the Ministry of Construction and Housing, we have brought tremendous news to Kfar Chabad,” stated Rabbi Rabinowitz.
