Every man for himself. That is the mantra of the fast-paced American life. However, for some Jewish people, finding a relatable community and living as a part of a group is probably ingrained in our DNA.
When the Chabad of Port Washington opened its doors to the local community, there was much enthusiasm. The two-acre campus has quickly become home away from home for many of the Port Washington inhabitants. It is open to everyone, but its primary focus is learning about Jewish identity and culture. The Chabad of Port Washington is a buzzing center with a huge variety of activities and programs for attendees of all ages and backgrounds.
Happiness: A Work In Progress
With the motto “Everything Jewish for Every Jew”, the Chabad is ambitiously expanding the current campus by 13,000 sq. ft. And to achieve their goals, they need all the help they can get.
The founders, board of directors, trustees and staff of the Chabad are actively involved in creating a beautiful, fun, family-friendly environment that invites everyone in wholeheartedly.
To help achieve the Chabad’s aims, Howard Fensterman, a member of its Board of Directors, carries out significant philanthropic and fundraising activities. He has managed to contribute considerably to the goals of Chabad, in financial and other more intrinsic ways.
In his professional life, Howard Fensterman works as the Managing Partner of Abrams, Fensterman, Fensterman, Eisman, Formato, Ferrara & Wolf, LLP, based in Long Island.
He represents corporations, partnerships, LLCs and LLPs, as well as other business entities. Howard is often the first choice for individuals looking for help with asset-based lending, litigation cases, settlement negotiations, shareholder and partnership agreements, purchase and sale of business entities and a whole range of real estate matters.
A Little Bit of Kindness Goes a Long Way

Under the guidance and philanthropic leadership of Howard Fensterman and other directors, the Chabad continues to achieve its aims of strengthening the local Jewish community. And we hope other synagogues will follow suit.
