According to the New York Observer, Rabbi Dovi Scheiner, brother of Chabad Lubavitch of Boulder County‘s Rabbi Pesach Scheiner, has signed a lease to locate Soho’s only shul in a building of its own.

“After four years of wandering in the desert of New York real estate, a 32-year-old rabbi who employs a modern aesthetic to attract the neighborhood’s hip, and often lapsed, Jewish set has finally found a semi-permanent home in the five-story, red-brick building at 43 Crosby Street.

“Rabbi Dovi Scheiner signed the 12-year lease on Sept. 15—nearly eight years to the day after 9/11, which was also, in a rather unfortunate happenstance, his wedding day.

“’The juxtaposition of that tragedy and our happiest day led us to Lower Manhattan with a sense of purpose and a feeling we could contribute something to the rebuilding,’ said the good rebbe, a Wall Street resident, son of a Borough Park rabbi and brother of rabbis in Boulder, Palm Beach and Sheepshead Bay.”

We congratulate Rabbi Dovi, and by extension, Rabbi Pesach, on this wonderful milestone, and wish him the best of luck.
