Rabbi Menny and Peri Raichik have opened a new Chabad center in Houston, Texas. The Chabad Israeli center will provide Hebrew-language programming for Hebrew speaking families in the city. According to the most recent Jewish Federation survey, there are more than 3,700 Israelis living in Houston, which makes up about 9 percent of Jewish adults in Houston.
“We will have programming for the whole family, with a special focus on capturing the imagination of the children and inspiring their Jewish identity,” Rabbi Menny said.
Rabbi Shimon Lazaroff appointed the Raichiks to open Houston’s 13th Chabad center. “The best way to reach Israelis is if we talk their language,” he says.
