The Chabad House in the Almaden neighborhood of San Jose, California was destroyed early Wednesday morning after flames burned through the building.

The arson investigators say the fire appeared to have started by someone outdoors in the carport and then extended into the attic space of The Chabad House.

Just 3 days later on Shabbos the Shul was broken into and vandalized! The case is still under investigation.

Rabbi Mendel Weinfeld and his wife Mussi just renovated and opened this new location three months ago. Now, they’re left picking up the pieces.

Despite all of this destruction Baruch Hashem no one was injured and that the Sifrei Torah were saved!

AN EMERGENCY FUND WAS CREATED TO HELP THEM REBUILD.

No insurance?

Moshe

I’m sure there was but if you ever made an insurance claim you’d know that 1. There might be a high deductible 2. It might not cover all the damage done 3. Can take a year or two to get the money from them

Dave

Moshe, 1. so why can’t they raise the funds for the deductible, rather than a $250,000 charity campaign? 2. I don’t see why all the damage wouldn’t be covered, an assessor can get a clear indication of replacement costs. We had an issue a number of years ago, and everything was reimbursable from the fire damage, including the wear and tear underlying. 3. Not true. As with car damage claims via an insurer, it takes a few weeks at max for payment after the assessment. Relocation costs are usually covered too.

Moshe

All the above: Depending on the policy…

Macher

oy, may mashiach be here and the new chabad house should be in yerushalayim
