Groundbreaking Ceremony for Chabad of Henderson’s Jewish Community Center



On Sunday, April 23rd, the high winds didn’t keep people away from Chabad of Green Valley/Henderson’s Groundbreaking Ceremony!  Held at the new site of the Chabad of Henderson Jewish Community Center, located on Carnegie St. between Kenneth Ave. and Horizon Ridge Pkwy, a large tent was set up to house the over 200 attendees at the historic event.


Serving as MC, Georgia Horesh, Office Administrator of Chabad of Green Valley/Henderson, welcomed guests and introduced Levi Harlig who then sang a beautiful acapella tune for the gathered attendees.  Afterward, Rabbi Mendy Harlig and his wife, Rebbetzin Chaya Harlig spoke about Chabad, Chabad of Green Valley/Henderson’s history and hopes for the future for their community.  They introduced Eileen and Allen Anes who gave beautiful and humorous speeches about their relationship with Chabad and the Harligs.

President of Jewish Nevada and resident of Henderson, Todd Polikoff spoke a few words of the importance of the Jewish Community Center, followed by Rabbi Shea Harlig, head of Chabad in Nevada, who voiced his blessings and pride.  Long time congregants and contributors to Chabad of Green Valley/Henderson, Ray and Susie Koroghli were welcomed to the podium and both talked about their connection to the synagogue and encouraged others to support the new community center.  Then Ray gave a beautiful Tehilim for the gathered guests.


The guest speakers were then invited for photographs with hard hats and shovels for the symbolic groundbreaking ceremony.   People were invited to take photos and to enjoy refreshments at the Harouni home, two blocks away.  Those who attended got free t-shirts marking the event as well as hardhat shaped stress balls and a face-painter from Balloons with a Twist, painted the faces of the children who were there. 


Food was provided and donated by Simon & Joe’s and Trader Joe’s.  Special thanks goes out to all the volunteers who helped man the tables, directed parking and provided security at the event.
