After more than a year of preparation, Chabad of Missoula is finally moving into a new Jewish center at 2145 South Avenue West. The group plans to close on the building in April and finish up renovations by the end of 2024.

“We’re just getting started,” said Rabbi Chezky Vogel.

The new center will have space for a sanctuary to hold services, a social hall, a Jewish library, a children’s wing, a classroom, as well as a kosher kitchen and a Judaica store.
