About
The Chabad Jewish Center was established in August 2003. Our aim is to give meaning, share joy and add spirituality to the every day. Our dream is to teach these values in a warm and nurturing environment where people can grow together, enjoying life and Judaism simultaneously.

We invite you to explore our site and join in our many programs, celebrations, and events. You will find a calendar packed with something for everyone - undergraduates, graduates, children, youth and adults.
