Chabad of Brattleboro, Vermont, led by Rabbi Avremy and Chaya Raskin, is in the process of purchasing a beautiful new property for their Chabad center.
10 years ago, the Raskin’s moved on shlichus to Brattleboro Vermont, a small and rural area in Southeastern Vermont, building up a Jewish community from scratch.
From their previous location in a modest, single-family home, they now are in escrow to purchase a large and beautiful property at 1130 Upper Dummerston Road, converting the spacious Barn property into a Chabad Jewish center.
“This new Center for Jewish Life will be centrally located, commercially zoned, and generously sized to host their current programs and much more,” Rabbi Raskin says. “This has the potential to permanently and positively change the landscape of Jewish life in the community.”
They are now scheduled to close on the property on December 1, 2021.
The project will be completed in stages. Phase One, which will be completed soon after closing, will allow for a dedicated synagogue space within the existing home on the property.
Phase Two (completion date to be determined), will renovate the existing barn building to become a beautiful synagogue with classrooms, educational displays, and a convenient kosher shop.
“This new purchase will be YOUR Jewish center, and it is up to YOU to be part of the historic moment and make it happen!
Today you have the opportunity to give a gift for the future of the Jewish community.
Your gift of any amount will be used for the closing, and will create the immediate impact of securing and finalizing the purchase of the new Center for Jewish Life in Brattleboro.
This is a time-sensitive opportunity and we hope you will partner with us and lay the founding bricks for a thriving Jewish community in Brattleboro Vermont for years to come!
