Message from our Committee

Dear Friends, 

It’s an exciting time for Chabad of Barrington and East Bay. Look around our building – the exterior was in need of lots of attention and work, last summer we accomplished that goal.

But when we come inside...well, our space no longer fits our growing community. Our Shabbat/holiday services and events are so well attended, that we are bursting at the seams! The kitchen is insufficient and the children need a proper play area and classroom space.

We could go on to detail the rest of the Chabad House needs, but let’s just say that “growing pains” are a good problem.

After taking into consideration the opinions and suggestions of many community members, as well as months of work by the Planning Committee, we are honored to invite you to take part in the Chabad of Barrington “it’s Time to Grow” Capital Campaign.

Thanks to the generosity of the community’s giving thus far, our goal is in sight and the plan is to have the majority of the work completed in time for the High Holiday season. The brochure outlines the campaign goals and many opportunities for giving, please remember your donation will make a difference, as this project is a collective community effort.

Thank you for your participation.
