Jewish Institutions Damaged During Hurricane
The RAJE Center in Brighton Beach suffered damage during the Hurricane. The building sustained heavy damage during the storm. The entire first floor of the building was flooded. The Bait Medrash (study hall), classrooms, hallways and elevator shaft were submerged in 4 feet of water. The lower level large room, which we call the Moadon, was under as much as 12 feet or water at the height of the flood and is still flooded under about 4 feet of water.
The boiler room and the electric room are also still under water. There is no electricity, land line phone service, internet or cell service in the neighborhood. We urgently need a generator and pump to drain the flood waters, which would allow us to begin to assess the damage and begin clean up.
RAJE needs your help.
