Ilai's Library
Ilai Mizrachi-Gabbitas Children's Library at the Chabad Jewish Center

With the help of over 400 donors we have raised over $50,000 by September 9 (the Shloshim, the 30th day from Ilai's funeral) to establish a children's library at the Chabad Jewish Center in loving memory of Ilai Mizrachi-Gabbitas.

Please continue to contribute as we build a beautiful legacy for Ilai.

Ilai loved books, both in Hebrew and English.

Ilai was a cheerful and enthusiastic student at the Chabad Hebrew School, loved by all he encountered. He loved to study and explore.

We decided to establish a children's library in his memory at the Chabad Jewish Center, where he loved to attend. We thank you for your support in this endeavor to perpetuate his memory, his love of books, his love of learning and his love of Judaism.

ספריית ילדים ע״ש עילי יוסף מזרחי-גביטס

עילי אהב ספרים באנגלית ובעברית. עילי אהב ללמוד ולחקור. עילי אהב את היהדות. עילי אהב ללכת לביה״ס לעברית בחב״ד איידהו.

לכן החלטנו לייסד ספריית ילדים בבית חב״ד בבויסי, איידהו על שם עילי כדי להנציח את אהבתו לספרים, ללמידה וליהדות.

מודים מראש על תרומותיכם,

צ׳אק ומושית
