Give Back to The Chabad House

What is Chabad of Asheville?

Chicken soup on Friday night. The light in a child’s eyes when she reads her first Hebrew word. Warm synagogue services, embracing everyone and ensuring they feel at home. A listening ear and helping hand, to everyone in the community, regardless of membership or affiliation. A home away from home for visitors and guests from around the world. Non-stop adult education classes, because learning never ends. Teen get-togethers to ensure teens are supported at this critical stage in their lives. Bringing the community together during the holiday times. And much much more.

We are dedicated to serving our community - and now we’re asking for your support to help "ChabadLeap" through the transition from 660 Merrimon to 127 McDowell, with strength and support.

How does a Match Campaign work?

Running an operation like Chabad of Asheville, requires a major investment of time, energy, and capital. While ensuring that no Jew is left behind, the day-to-day expenses of operating a Chabad House can be daunting. Rather than charging membership fees or exorbitant event prices, which could alienate a large portion of our community, we rely on the generosity of people that we serve.

To that end, 3 generous donors have come forward with a proposal to help Chabad House transition to our new property. They will donate $60,000 to our center, provided that it is matched by an equal donation from our community. From now through 12/31 only, your dollar will have double the impact. Thank you to David and Sharon Boas, Scott and Karen Paly, and George and Deena Szemkus for matching these gifts. 

How can I help?

You can be a partner in everything we do to benefit our community, by contributing to our campaign, and by spreading the word. Maimonides says that every good deed, no matter how small, tips the scale of humanity toward goodness. Today you have the opportunity to see the impact of that deed doubled. Join the campaign please, by making a donation today!
