About Chabad

Chai Center Chabad is your place to love, learn and live Judaism, at your own pace and at your own comfort level.
Our community is  accepting and non-judgmental, with no stereotypes and labels.
Although our families come from varying backgrounds of Jewish practice, we all share a strong commitment and pride in being Jewish!

We teach classical Judaism, and we share our knowledge of Torah and the practice of thousands of years of Jewish traditions.
We believe that this knowledge and practice connects us to G-d, gives us our strength as a people, and are the Divine secret to a happy life, strong family values, and assured Jewish continuity.

We have no membership requirement.
You are most cordially invited to celebrate, study and pray with us at any and all of our programming throughout the year.

Rabbi Mendy and Rivkie Bogomilsky founded Chai Center Chabad in 1991, upon receiving the Rebbe’s blessings in writing for success in their endeavors, for success in finding a home, and for success in teaching Torah to the community.

Rabbi Mendy’s parents, Rabbi Shmuel and Yehudis Bogomilsky, are the Rebbe’s emissaries to Mount Sinai Congregation in Newark and the surrounding area since 1964, and paved the way for Chai Center Chabad with their activities, advice and support.
