Chabad of Fountain Hills Purchases Building
from the Arizona Jewish News:
In its continuing efforts to keep up with increasing membership, Chabad of Fountain Hills has purchased the former site of Gridleys, a retail store that closed in May after 43 years in business.
Rabbi Mendy and Tzipi Lipskier founded Chabad of Fountain Hills in 2010, and for the first year, held classes and services in their home. They quickly outgrew that space and in 2011 leased 900 square feet of space on Saguaro
Boulevard in Fountain Hills, which is located on the eastern slope of the McDowell Mountains bordering Scottsdale at Shea Boulevard near 140th Street.
Within two years, there wasn’t enough room at the Saguaro Boulevard location to hold anything more than classes and a typical Saturday service, and Rabbi Lipskier said they had to rent space elsewhere for High Holiday services and other holiday programs.
