Chabad House has survived the Christchurch earthquake and has reopened.

Rabbi Mendel Goldstein told J-Wire that Israeli ambassador Shemi Tzur is scheduled to visit the South Island city tomorrow to inspect Chabad Hose which has received the green pass declaring it to be structurally sound.

Rabbi Goldstein added: “I will also be showing him around the city.”

    On behalf of the Canterbury Hebrew Congregation I am happy to report that we are well, if somewhat unnerved by the long succession of after-shocks and some of our members have suffered serious damage to their homes. The authorities are coping extremely well but there is a lot to be done. Fortunately we are in a position not to require outside help but we acknowlege the many messages of support and sympathy we have received from other communities and well-wishers.
    The synagogue has just undergone extensive repairs and has been declared safe and services will resume with Kol Nidrei on Friday.
    The Board of the Canterbury Hebrew Congregation are the only ones entitled to speak for the Community.
    On behalf of the Board Edward Adams (President)
