Chabad-Lubavitch in Berlin will receive $2.15 million from a $1.75 billion pot intended for cultural institutions and projects in the German capital city, the JTA reports.

The Jewish Museum Berlin will receive $7 million in 2017, an increase of $1.18 million. The added funding reflects the importance of Jewish life in Berlin, Social Democratic Party lawmaker Swen Schulz, a member of the Bundestag’s Budget Committee, told the German news agency dpa.
