Amazing Groundbreaking Ceremony April 30th, Pictures here

Chabad of Madison is a welcoming home for Madison’s Jewish community.

Nationally, Chabad is the largest and fastest growing part of the Jewish community; Madison reflects that trend.

Engagement in Chabad of Madison’s activities such as educational programs for school age children, young adults, and seniors has exploded with success, serving thousands of community members each year. Chabad holiday services and celebrations regularly draw several hundred participants and are so large that we have completely outgrown the current Chabad House on Regent Street.

Chabad is about souls. Whatever the affiliation, whether one has ever walked into a synagogue or not, Chabad adds spirituality, study, community - or just some good soul food - to Jewish life.
