Chabad – Lubavitch is considered to be the most dynamic force in Jewish life today.


What is Chabad-Lubavitch?

‘ChaBaD’ is a Hebrew acronym for Chochmah- wisdom, Binah – comprehension and Daat – knowledge. ‘Lubavitch’ – is the name of a town in White – Russia (Belarus) where the movement was based for more than a century and translates to mean ‘Town of love’.


Chabad- Lubavitch teaches understanding and recognition of the creator, the role and purpose of the creation and the importance of each creature. All of this is conveyed with the love and responsibility we have to every single Jew.


The movement is guided by the teachings of its seven leaders (“Rebbe’s”), beginning with Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, of righteous memory (1745-1812). These leaders expounded upon the most refined and delicate aspects of Jewish mysticism and law.  They personified the age-old Biblical qualities of piety and leadership and they concerned themselves not only with Chabad-Lubavitch, but also with the totality of Jewish life, spiritual and physical.


Motivated by a profound love for every Jew and spurred by boundless optimism and self-sacrifice, the seventh Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, set into motion a dazzling array of programs, services and institutions to serve every Jew. The Rebbe charged us with the mission of making the world conscious of the imminent redemption and to prepare an environment where this can be realized. Today 4,000 full-time emissary families apply 250 year-old principles and philosophy to direct more than 3,900 institutions (and a workforce that numbers in the tens of thousands) dedicated to the welfare of the Jewish people worldwide.
