Support Bais Chabad of West Bloomfield

We are a group of Lubavitchers showing support for and solidarity with Bais Chabad of West Bloomfield, Michigan, and its distinguished shliach, Rabbi Elimelech Silberberg, and to protest the injustice being perpetrated against it by Rabbi Berel Shemtov and Lubavitch Foundation of Michigan.

Lubavitch Foundation is hounding the Bais Chabad through the court system in an attempt to take ownership of their shul. This is in plain defiance of Va’ad Rabbonei Lubavitch, who unequivocally ruled that they cannot sue the Bais Chabd in the secular courts.

The case was summarily dismissed by the trial judge and then again by the Michigan Supreme Court. Recently, Lubavitch Foundation appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. Bais Chabad now needs $50,000 for attorneys’ fees in order to file the necessary response to this frivolous appeal (in addition to the over $250,000 they already spent on legal fees).

Our goal is to raise (at least) $25,000—half the needed amount—during a one-week fundraising drive. Please open your heart and donate to this worthy cause—every dollar counts.

We cannot stand by idly while a beautiful Chabad community is being bullied. We urge the Chabad community worldwide to demonstrate that Chabad is behind them by providing financial assistance and words of encouragement and support.
