New Campus for Jewish Education to Open in Heart of LA

Los Angeles, CA

Chabad of California today announced the acquisition of a 23,000 square foot building on La Cienega Boulevard that will become the new campus of the Cheder Menachem elementary school, named after the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson.  Plans are underway for a full renovation and upgrade of the facility, which is located just south of Pico Boulevard in the heart of West Los Angeles' Jewish community.

“Today is the fifth day of the Hebrew month of Av, an auspicious date since it marks the passing of the Holy AriZal Chai, whose teachings continue to illuminate the path of the Jewish people during the dark days of exile,” said Rabbi Boruch S. Cunin, Director of West Coast Chabad.  “It is a fitting day to announce this exciting development, which will benefit the children of our community as we create a wonderful new learning center for Cheder Menachem."

The spacious new facility on Pico Boulevard offers a convenient location with much potential for a growing educational institution.  Rabbi Cunin noted that on this Hebrew date two years ago, Chabad purchased the beautiful 70-acre mountaintop campus in Running Springs that now serves as the site of the successful Camp Gan Israel Running Springs.  The wooded property — renamed Kiryas Schneerson — is also the home of The Panikoff Center of Love and Kindness.
