The Chabad House of Greater Boston, part of the world-wide network of Chabad- Lubavitch, is dedicated to furthering the understanding and observance of Jewish traditions to all, regardless of their background. In the spirit of the teaching and example of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, we try to assist others in whatever capacity possible. 

The Chabad House of Greater Boston is primarily focused on serving university students. Our Shabbat and holiday programs, classes, events and the general atmosphere are all geared to make college students feel at home.
