Philosophy

 

Motivated by a profound love for every Jew and spurred by a boundless optimism, The Chabad Center sets into motion a dazzling array of programs and services to serve Jews from all walks of life.

  Chabad-Lubavitch is the world’s largest Jewish educational and outreach organization. 
A vibrant force in Jewish life, its activities touch the lives of millions of Jews. With 
approximately 3,300 centers and institutions worldwide, there is not a major city in 
the world that does not have a permanent Chabad-Lubavitch presence.
 

‘Chabad’ is an acronym for the Hebrew words Wisdom, Understanding and Knowledge. 
It is the mission of Chabad to bring the beauty of Judaism to every Jew in a way that he 
or she can relate to it, in his or her own understanding and personal life.

‘Lubavitch’ is the name of the town in White-Russia which was the seat of the Movement 
for several generations. It is taken from the Russian words meaning, “city of brotherly love”. 
The Lubavitch philosophy is based on unconditional love and acceptance of all people, and 
recognition of the uniqueness of each individual.
