At 10 years of amazing service to the community, Senior Shliach in the Philippines, Rabbi Yossef Yitzchak Levy announced the Grand Opening of the new beautiful building he built for Chabad! The Chabad House is a replica of the original 770 in New York, Beis Chayeinu and was inaugurated on Sunday, the 17th of Kislev.
Rabbis, Shluchim, Donors, and Supporters from around the globe took part in the festivities. Those who cut the ribbon at the entrance to the new Chabad House building were donors, as well as, Rabbi Yehuda Friedman, Shliach of the Rebbe Melech HaMoshiach in East Brooklyn. Rabbi Benyomin Edery, Senior Shliach in Japan affixed the Mezuzah.
The generous donors and supporters were honored with removing the cover above the plaques throughout the building; the Synagogue, Mikva, and Social Hall among others.
This ceremony was followed by joyful dancing in the magnificent Shul! The Aron Kodesh and the Chazzan’s stand are also designed to look like the original ones in 770. Community members, tourists, affluent donors, and Shluchim all were present.
Following the dancing, the many guests had a wonderful meal which eventually turned into a Farbrengen in honor of Yud Tes Kislev. This lasted until the early hours of the morning.
Rabbi Levy notes with satisfaction, that since moving into the new building, the programs at Chabad have grown tremendously in quantity and quality! This is surely a great beginning to the next 10 years of Shlichus in the Philippines which will immediately bring about the coming of Moshiach! And the new 770 Building will be transferred to its’ place near the original 770 which will be by the Beit HaMikdash right now!
