Our monthly Friday night services are traditional and are conducted in a joyous and casual atmosphere. Many of those who attend cannot read Hebrew, yet everyone feels at home. The prayer book is bi-lingual and various English readings are included in the service. Song and commentary add meaning and participation to the prayers. Services are followed by a delightful Kiddush.
VISITATION At Chabad
We realize how frightening, overwhelming or simply lonesome being in the hospital can be, and that’s why we put such emphasis on visiting people in the hospital and bringing them a gift package with goodies, that show them we care. Chai Jewish Center and its volunteers have visited numerous hospitals and senior homes bringing joy to many patients. Most importantly the patient is given the message that they are not alone.
BAR AND BAT MITZVAH
Our emphasis in preparing B’nai Mitzvah is to foster an awareness that this milestone is not only a special day in of itself, but also that it truly marks the beginning of their adult Jewish life and adult responsibilities in Mitzvot & Jewish traditions.
Regardless of where the celebration and service are being held we are happy to help you and your child prepare for this big milestone.
We provide individual tutoring for both Bar & Bat Mitzvah students. We will also work with you and your family to guide you through the process, preparations and the practical elements of celebrating a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. We will be delighted in being a part of your family's celebration.
Study and plunge into the depths of our faith. Based upon the weekly Torah portion and approaching holidays, these classes focus on basic and fundamental Jewish concepts as they relate to our daily lives. To schedule a private study session with the Rabbi or Chana, please contact us.
KOSHERING & CONSULTATION
Keeping Kosher is one of the most fundamental aspects of our religion. Koshering is the process of transforming your kitchen into one that meets all the standards of Kashrut.
MEZUZA AND TEFILLIN CHECKING
Wrapped around our arms in those square black boxes, it’s easy to forget how holy Tefillin are. Containing the name of Hashem, each time we wrap ourselves in those black straps we are forging a bond with our Creator. Like Mezuzot, Tefillin contain holy parchments that need to be checked from time to time to ensure they are fit for use. Drop your Tefillin off and we’ll check them thoroughly and return them to you good as new.
