The campaign for a new, larger home for Stanford University’s Chabad House got a boost when alumnus Tad Taube, who graduated in 1957, donated $1.3 million to the center, which serves Jewish students, faculty members and local residents.
From the Stanford Daily:
According to Rabbi Dov Greenberg, Chabad House’s executive director, Chabad recently launched a fundraising campaign for $6 million to buy land and construct a new facility and is currently finding land to purchase. Right now, the house sits at 1289 College Avenue, just off Hanover Street.
“We’re still looking for the most suitable location — so that search is still underway — but the space in Palo Alto next to Stanford requires significant funding,” said Greenberg. “[Taube] gave a very generous gift, but we still are in the middle of the campaign. We’re nowhere near the end of it.”
With the move, Chabad hopes to address its current lack of space.
