My family is not religious; will I feel comfortable in the Chabad Hebrew School?

Our Chabad Center is inclusive and non-judgmental, and our programs are open to all Jews.

The teachings of Chabad are imbued with the renowned Jewish spirit and joy, but in no way is the commitment to an Orthodox lifestyle a prerequisite to one’s acceptance at the Center’s programs, activities & schools.

Please feel free to stop by to see for yourself the warmth and welcome everyone receives regardless of their personal religious affiliation and practices.

Do we have to be members of the Chabad Center to enroll our children in Hebrew School?

The Chabad’s No Membership Philosophy makes our programs accessible to all. Everyone is welcomed as family. Our unique approach and unconditional acceptance of every Jew has created a dynamic and flourishing Jewish community. We are constantly expanding our programs and services, such as our Hebrew School, to serve everyone and we invite you to join us at any time.

TESTIMONIALS

“Our children love going to Hebrew school each week. They are learning Jewish religion, language, and culture in a warm, nurturing environment.”

“As kids, both my husband and I didn’t have the greatest experiences at the Hebrew schools we attended. When we decided it was time to send our son to a Hebrew school, we took a lot of time researching and when the Hebrew school at Chabad became available, we were excited to explore this option. We met with Rabbi Yehuda and Chaya and discussed our experiences and outlined what we definitely don’t want for our son. Our son went happily the first day and has been going happily ever since. Rabbi Yehuda and Chaya pour their heart and souls into the Hebrew school, and it shows! The kids don’t learn by traditional methods, But rather participate in great meaningful activities, making learning fun!”

 “Rabbi Yehuda always comes up with fun ideas on how to make us learn about our Jewish customs and our Jewish identity. Every week we learn the prayers together as a group and how to read and write in Hebrew individually, according to our level. We sing, play games, and learn so much about our Jewish history and what it means to be Jewish. I also learned how to make a delicious challah! Everyone is so nice and friendly. The teachers are like my family!”
