Lubavitch Center For Russian Jewry
The Lubavitch Center for Russian Jewry, founded in 2001, is nurtured and supported by concerned members of communities in our area. Chabad Lubavitch is dedicated to the reestablishment and strengthening of our Judaic faith, principles, identity, commitment, and pride.
Lubavitch Center is a unique and vibrant institution providing a home away from home for any man, woman or youngster who walks through its doors. Its rabbis, staff and volunteer workers are pioneers in the most literal sense, threading a path and showing the way to bring the light of Torah and Jewish tradition to all Jews. Acceptance of every Jew on their own level regardless of their level of religious commitment or practice has become a trademark of Chabad Lubavitch. And by blending traditional values with modern day technology we have been successful in reaching even the most alienated, helping them appreciate their roots and identify with their Judaism with enthusiasm.
Thanks to God's infinite blessings and the generous support and involvement of members of the community, Lubavitch Center has grown rapidly during these years. Today Lubavitch Center boasts a full array of successful programming, including a highly successful Hebrew school, ongoing programs for Philadelphia's Russian speaking community, a full adult education, women circle program and popular holiday celebrations.
