BOISE, Idaho — The Chabad Jewish Center on Wednesday celebrated a historic day for Idaho’s Jewish community.
Rabbi Mendel Lifshitz says, “This is a tremendous milestone that we are here today to celebrate the groundbreaking of the new Chabad Jewish Center.”
The Chabad Jewish Center has had a presence in Idaho’s capital city since 2004.
"When we moved to Boise. Boise had a small Jewish community. It still is a very small community, but it did not have any traditional representation within the Jewish community,” Lifshitz said.
