Chabad Jewish Center is part of an international organization on the front lines of Jewish education and activism. Now numbering over  5000 centers around the globe, Chabad provides care, inspiration, hospitality and knowledge to Jews from all walks of life. Our center serves the Jewish Community of the Oak Park - River Forest area and thanks to your  support, we are growing rapidly.

Under the guidance of the  Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the organization has made "Ahavat Yisrael" - Love of a fellow Jew – the driving force that gives it momentum. Acceptance of every Jew on their own level, regardless of their background, observance, age or financial status, has become the trademark of Chabad.
