Ground was broken Monday on a new center for Jewish students at the University of Delaware.
On hand were university and government leaders.
The groundbreaking comes a little more than a year after the Chabad Center, also known as the Little Blue House, was hit by an arson-caused blaze.
The fire made national news during a period of growing antisemitism, with the University of Delaware community and Delaware residents offering their support. Months later, an attempted arson was reported at a Chabad Center in North Wilmington.
A GoFundMe campaign raised more than a half a million dollars that will be used in rebuilding a far larger building to replace the small structure housing the center.
More details of the project and the fund-raising effort are available here.
