Beth Israel Congregation wrote -
Beth Israel Congregation in Ann Arbor, MI was recently hit by extensive flooding resulting from a severe storm, in a month where Ann Arbor has seen double its usual rainfall. The sustained downpour quickly overwhelmed the roof, and though firefighters responded quickly to clear the roof, water poured into the sanctuary, the social hall, classrooms, and into the children's library on the lower level. Congregants raced to move Torah scrolls and holy books to dry ground. The insurance company has denied any liability, based on the fact that the roof itself was not damaged. We are now facing mounting bills to repair our sanctuary, which is currently unusable, and our substantially damaged interior.
Help us repair our beautiful building!
