(JTA) — A recently renovated Chabad House in Thailand has been ravaged again by flooding.
Heavy rains and flooding this week once again put the Chabad House in Koh Samui underwater. The center recently completed a $50,000 renovation after floods in November destroyed electrical equipment, furniture, books and computers,

Rabbi Menachem Goldshmid told Chabad.org on Monday that he managed to remove the center’s Torah scrolls before water covered the first floor.
Goldshmid, who runs the center with his wife, Sara Hinda, said he works with members of the local Jewish community, as well as the dozens of Israeli backpackers who visit the area each year.
The rabbi has not yet been able to enter the building to assess the damage.
