The Moris and Lillian Tabacinic Chabad Center functioned as a center for Jewish life for the last decade of our 23 years serving the Tallahassee Jewish community. It had become a beacon of light, full of the beauty and joy of Jewish life. Thousands of Jewish students and members of our community met one another at Shabbat and holiday services and meals, participated in Torah study, and witnessed acts of kindness that emanated to all areas. While that is something no fire can negate, we are now faced with the destruction not only of the building, but of our Torah scrolls, literally hundreds of books, our kitchen and all our other facilities.
Chanie and I are shocked and overwhelmed by this terrible fire; fortunately, no one was injured. We are also committed to overcome this tragedy, and with G-d’s help we will yet build a stronger and brighter future out of the ashes.
We will keep you updated, and please visit our website for more information as it becomes available.
