Congregation Chabad Lubavitch of Flatbush

A warm and loving home for every Jew

aka Chabad of Flatbush   |   Brooklyn, NY   |  ChabadFlatbush.org

Mission

Chabad of Flatbush is committed to maintaining a welcoming Jewish community with educational, social and cultural programs. We are dedicated to making the beauty and joys of our Jewish traditions and heritage accessible, relevant, and meaningful. Our Sages point to the final Redemption as the ultimate purpose for the creation of the world. G-d created the world to have a "dwelling place among mortals," and this goal will be realized in the Era of the Redemption. For centuries now, the Jewish people have been consciously or unconsciously constructing G-d's dwelling, and now, it is emerging before our very eyes. Chabad's goal is preparing ourselves and the world for the coming of Moshiach. We are dedicated to helping every Jew increase their level of Jewish knowledge and commitment.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Although the infinite G-d created the world which is innately good, its Creator purposely left room for us to improve upon His work. All human activities are opportunities to fulfill this mission, and every human being can be involved in this "world correction"—child or adult, student or entrepreneur, industrialist or artist, caregiver or salesperson, political activist or environmentalist, or just another one of us struggling to keep afloat. The world is like a piece of great art, and is an expression of its creator. But unlike a Rembrandt or a Chagall, our world lacks its artist’s signature. It appears to be a place that “just is”—without an author, without a story, without meaning. Each act of "world correction" is a fine-tuning of our world’s voices. With each "fix", we are creating meaning out of confusion, harmony from noise, revealing the unique part each creation plays in a universal symphony that sings of its Creator.

Imagine a Hebrew School where kids don't want to miss a day! They come in with a smile and leave humming a Hebrew song. Walking through the Shul, you can hear the sounds of lively discussion, of singing, laughter and prayer. Imagine a child who feels the warmth and spirit of Judaism! Imagine the pride of his/her parents!

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

No Jew should ever be lost to the Jewish people, no Jew must ever be lonely.
Being that everything in this world was created for a divine purpose. All forms of modern technology can and should be harnessed to make the world a better place and, in the case of Jews, to spread Judaism in the widest possible manner.
Chabad does just that - reaching every last Jew in every last corner of this world.

In addition to the standard prayer services one can find at any Jewish synagogue, we have many Torah Classes for all ages on all levels, regardless of affiliation. We don't charge for membership, so those budget-tight Jews can also join, without feeling uncomfortable.

For those who their busy schedule doesn't allow them the opportunity to come to synagogue, we bring the synagogue to them on the street. Our colorful "Mitzvah Tank" is hard-to-miss and many a times one can be found drawn to the tank with their sleeves rolled up ready to don Teffilin or to say a quick prayer.

Our various women's program ensure that "the pillars of the Jewish nation" are informed of their great responsibilities and merits.

And with our numerous youth programs, the next generation is ready to continue on the mission of making this world a better place under one G-d.

With a dedicated staff of 6, and a strong-and-growing team of volunteers, we are set out for success. Our Rabbis and Rebbetzins are really there for

We have a successful and vibrant Jewish community, and we're growing. 100's of people are touched on a weekly bases, and 1000's of Mitzvos are being done thanks to our wide-range of activities.
