Dear Friend, 

    In 2011 Chabad Jewish Center was only a dream to many local residents. But today it is a vibrant center serving the Upper Passaic County community. Chabad Jewish Center touches the lives of thousands, of all backgrounds and affiliations. Our children and youth programs, featuring Chabad Hebrew School, Holiday Programs and Mini Chefs, and many other services, programs and events have seen tremendous growth since its inception in 2011 to today.

    Chabad Jewish Center's unique approach and unconditional acceptance of all people has created a dynamic and flourishing community.

    At Chabad Jewish Center there is no membership - everyone belongs! Take a moment to browse through our website and join a program that fits your needs. 

    We look forward to greeting you at The Gala and seeing you soon at the continuously expanding Chabad Jewish Center.

    Rabbi Mendy Gurkov
    Executive Director
