Shalom to the website of the Chabad Houses. Places to relax, to meet people, to learn and to grow. An escape from the rush, noise, and pressure of campus life, inviting, welcoming and home-like centers of Jewish activity. Chabad is a multifaceted Jewish outreach movement with many centers. We are not defined as Orthodox, Conservative, or Reform, just as a friendly, warm and traditional Jewish place to grow.

Chabad House is dedicated to providing for the physical and spiritual needs of all, regardless of age, religious background or affiliation, through Ahavas Yisroel unconditional love for each and every one.

"The Lubavitcher Rebbe has undertaken the most daring spiritual initiative ever . . . to search out every Jew in love as they were once hunted down in hate . . ."

Dr. Jonathan Sacks, Chief Rabbi of the United Kingdom

Our many programs affords the opportunity to practice and experience Jewish life and tradition firsthand, while simultaneously discovering the past, present and future of the Jewish people. Our programs are available to all organizations, groups, synagogues and temples.

Chabad House and our affiliates offers spiritual guidance, community outreach and social services, focusing primarily on education, promoting Jewish awareness, knowledge and observance, and ensuring Jewish continuity and family life.

"For us at Chabad, Jewish unity is not a slogan, a wish or a promise, it is a reality"

Yisrael Meir Lau, Chief Rabbi of the Israel
