    Posted on 04/16/2019
    On Monday, April 15, the Village Board considered and approved a Master Conceptual Plan for the construction of Chabad of Kenosha Synagogue/Learning Center. The petitioner, Rabbi Betzalel Wilschanski is requesting to develop the approximate 4 acre property located at 6939 88th Avenue with a synagogue that will serve as a place of worship and study center. 

    The proposed development will be a 5,200 square foot Jewish synagogue as a place of worship and study center. The main building would include a gathering space, library, classrooms, a mikvah, two guest rooms, restrooms and a kitchen. It will also include a 3,000 square foot hospitality home which will serve as a place for members who need a place to stay in order to observe religious practices and who need access to a kosher facility. The facility will be completed in four phases. During phase one they the land will be purchased and the existing home on the property will be renovated. Installing the municipal water main will be phase two. The third phase will be the construction of the synagogue, parking lots and storm water retention facility. Phase three would likely be completed within the next five years, and the final phase will be to construct the hospitality house.

    Chabad of Kenosha’s mission is to serve Jewish people living in Kenosha and its surrounding communities and will continue to be a partner and resource to the surrounding community. The facility will be open to the public from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. weekdays with activities and worship being held on Saturdays. There will be one full-time and 4 part-time employees at the facility. The prayer hall is proposed to have regular seating for 50 people, but they anticipate that number to be lower. On special events the facility will be able to accommodate up to 100 people.
