Isaac Toussie Lends Support to Cornerstones of Brooklyn History
Donations to the Kol Israel Congregation will further outreach of the National Register of Historic Places listed organization.
NEW YORK, NY, December 29, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Isaac Toussie is expanding his role in local philanthropy with support for the Kol Israel Congregation, a foundation of the Brooklyn, New York community since 1928. The support will facilitate programs such as youth groups and neighborhood involvement in a period of unprecedented change for the Brooklyn area. Isaac Toussie is a Brooklyn native who has supported similar initiatives for several organizations.
The historical significance of the Kol Israel Congregation belies the small building's rectangular and plain exterior. Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2009, the congregation's synagogue has helped transition Brooklyn through socioeconomic changes for over 85 years.
Local leaders including Isaac Toussie are now supporting the institution through what is perhaps the area's greatest shift in recent memory.
Brooklyn has transformed into a culturally diverse haven for urbanites that many say is challenging Manhattan for iconic status. This dramatic change has seen the most populous of New York's boroughs emerge from economic blight, social tensions and riots into a posh enclave.
Much credit for keeping the community together as a welcoming destination is attributed to organizations such as the Kol Israel Congregation. This has helped Brooklyn become an attractive destination for new residents, an effect that has revitalized the community. The synagogue's congregation holds lecture series, women's committees and youth based programs that promote a sense of community across cultural barriers.
A renewed focus on preserving and empowering Brooklyn's historic institutions is underway as the borough continues to modernize. The Manhattan Beach Jewish Center, which has been a spiritual center of the area for over 90 years, received support from Isaac Toussie to help reopen its doors following damage from Hurricane Sandy.
While socioeconomic changes in Brooklyn will continue unabated, so too will thankful support for the community's pillars that have seen the area through decades of shifts.
