Dear Friend, 

10 years ago, Chabad Center for Jewish Life was only a dream to many local residents. But today it is a vibrant center serving the Upper Passaic County community. Chabad Center for Jewish Life touches the lives of thousands, of all backgrounds and affiliations. Our children and youth programs, featuring Chabad Hebrew School, Cteen, Holiday Programs and Mini Chefs, and many other services, programs and events have seen tremendous growth since its inception in 2012 to today.

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

At Chabad there is no membership - everyone belongs! 

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

Rabbi Mendy and Esty Gurkov

• Strengthen the Passaic County Jewish community by promoting Jewish pride, identity and enhancing observance and celebration.

• Provide social and cultural services and activities for families and individuals.

• To establish a warm and traditional place where everyone is made to feel welcome and comfortable.
