My family is not religious; will I feel comfortable in the Chabad Hebrew School?

OurTorah Center-Chabad is inclusive and non-judgmental, and our programs are open to all Jews.

The teachings of Chabad are imbued with the renowned Jewish spirit and joy, but in no way is the commitment to an Orthodox lifestyle a prerequisite to one’s acceptance at the Center’s programs, activities & schools.

Please feel free to stop by to see for yourself the warmth and welcome everyone receives regardless of their personal religious affiliation and practices.

Do we have to be members of the Chabad Center to enroll our children in Hebrew School?

The Torah Center-Chabad’s No Membership Philosophy makes our programs accessible to all. Everyone is welcomed as family. Our unique approach and unconditional acceptance of every Jew has created a dynamic and flourishing Jewish community. We are constantly expanding our programs and services, such as our Hebrew School, to serve everyone and we invite you to join us at any time.

Do we have to make any commitments like keeping Kosher to enroll our children in the Hebrew School?

We are not out to make one Orthodox. Our Center is an educational organization dedicated to helping every Jew, regardless of background, affiliation, or personal level of observance, to increase their level of Jewish knowledge, enthusiasm, and commitment.

All of our classes, programs, and services are designed to heighten the awareness and lend valuable insight into your Jewish heritage. Each individual is invited to participate, study, and learn.

Each individual makes his or her own respective religious, lifestyle decisions at his or her own pace.
