Mission Statement

Chabad Heights was established to serve the needs of the Brownstone Brooklyn residents and visitors.  All are welcome!

A man once came to see the Lubavitcher Rebbe to thank him for having dispatched a Chabad emissary to bring the joy of Judaism and the spirit of caring to a “little Jew in a wayward community.”  The Rebbe responded: “There is no such thing as a ‘little Jew’ or a ‘wayward community.’ In the scope of G‑d’s master-plan, the fate of a single soul holds the same cosmic and monumental significance as that of the entire world.” This outlook – so essential to Judaism, in general, and Chabad, in particular – is indeed the guiding principle behind the ongoing outreach, educational and social service programs of Chabad Heights.

Chabad Heights means many things to many people. To some it’s a preschool and an adult education center, to others a Loft Shul/Synagogue and a community center; to others still it’s a social service center for the needy and the troubled. Indeed, there is little within the realm of outreach and education that is outside of the sphere of focus of this multidimensional organization.

We invite you to explore our newly designed website that features all of our upcoming programs and activities, information about our thriving Jewish community, a myriad of learning opportunities and a wide variety of Jewish resources. We welcome you to explore and enjoy and hope to see you in person at one of our coming events.

Chabad Heights is dedicated to providing every Jew regardless of background, philosophy or level of commitment, an open door environment for strengthening and enhancing Jewish family life. Chabad serves individuals and families looking for an anchor and non-judgmental, accepting, personalized Jewish experience and a home away from home for everyone who walks through its doors.
