Chabad of Poway

On July 14, 2020, NBC San Diego reported on the charges of improper conduct taking place at Chabad of Poway in an article titled, "Rabbi Shot in Poway Synagogue Attack Pleads Guilty to Elaborate Tax Fraud Scheme: US Atty.." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory on Chabad of Poway. For more information regarding the charges reported, please see the NBC San Diego article.

  • On July 19, 2020, The Los Angeles Times published an article titled, "A fake congregation and tax schemes — California rabbi’s years of fraud revealed." For more information, please see The Los Angeles Times article.

  • On June 7, 2021, The San Diego Union-Tribune published an article titled, "La Jolla man sentenced in charity fraud case involving former Chabad of Poway rabbi." For more information, please see The San Diego Union-Tribune article.

The concerns raised about illegal activity, improper conduct, or organizational mismanagement are serious both in nature and scope and have thus warranted this CN Advisory. We have published this advisory to provide donors with content that they may find useful when making their giving decisions.
