About Lubavitch B.C.

Chabad’s mission is to reach out to others with acts of goodness and kindness. We are a community-based nonprofit organization whose efforts are rooted in traditional Jewish values. Many of our programs help the needy regardless of background belief or affiliation.

Chabad Lubavitch came to Canada's West Coast in 1974 and now is the largest Jewish organization providing educational and social services. Thanks to our generous supporters, we have been able to educate comfort and give hope to countless people in need. Chabad in Western Canada is part of the largest Jewish organization in the world with over 4300 Centres around the globe.

The organization embraces a philosophy of study, meditation, and social outreach that combines rigorous academics with proactive community involvement. Our rapidly growing array of educational and social service programs has made us one of the most dynamic forces in modern Jewish life.

Chabad is a Hebrew acronym for wisdom, understanding, and knowledge, and Lubavitch is the town in White Russia where the movement was based for more than a century. Chabad has consistently been at the forefront of Jewish education and community activism. The work of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson the Lubavitcher Rebbe has been the leader of the movement since 1950. His achievements are legendary. They are motivated by a profound love for humanity, and spurred by boundless optimism. The Rebbe lifted the global Jewish community from the ashes of the Holocaust and launched an unprecedented range of Jewish institutions outreach programs and social services.

Today Chabad Lubavitch in western Canada has nine centres in British Columbia, and three in Alberta.
