The organisation is building a new permanent community centre, having outgrown its original space in the home of Rabbi Pini and Rochie Pink’s home since its inception in August 2016.

It plans to create sufficient space for children to learn and discover, for families to connect, and for men and women to pray, study, and celebrate the joy of being Jewish.

While brimming with potential, the new premises requires renovation and improvement. Using the international crowdfunding platform Charidy, Chabad of Greenstone embarked on an ambitious all or nothing campaign to raise R1 million in 24 hours to renovate the new property.

On Wednesday, 1 May, any donation made was matched by three generous donors, meaning a contribution of R100 equalled R300. With the backing of the Greenstone and the broader community, the organisation shattered the goal and raised R1.16 million.

Phase one of the renovation is scheduled to be completed in time to host Rosh Hashanah services in the new Chabad House.
