Chabad House Damaged Family OK

S Barbara, CA

(lubavitch.com)Fire ripped through the Chabad Center near the University of California's Santa Barbara campus, Sunday. Though the Loschak family managed to escape unharmed, their house suffered severe damage on both the first and second floors. Most of their belongings were destroyed from smoke.

The Loschaks have been servicing the UCSB campus for six years, but they only moved into this building, at 779 Camino Pescadero, last year. In Februrary of 2008, Chabad of UCSB hosted the fifth annual Chabad on Campus Shabbaton. Over 600 students from 20 West Coast schools spent Shabbat with the Loschaks and UCSB students. The Chabad House is busy throughout the year, with weekly Shabat services, classes, and special events.
