Chabad of Saratoga County serves the entire Jewish community regardless of age and affiliation. Our goal is to promote Jewish identity and spread the wellsprings of Torah, specifically through art and music, fulfilling the Lubavitcher's Rebbe's mission and vision to change the world for good, one Mitzvah at a time.
Saratoga Chabad is a branch of Capital Chabad: The Capital Region's Jewish Educational and Communal Outreach Network.
Chabad has been serving Saratoga for over 25 years, and a full time Saratoga Chabad center was established in 2001 to serve year-round.
Saratoga Chabad provides a welcoming family atmosphere to Jews of all backgrounds and affiliations.
The Lubavitcher Rebbe
Saratoga Chabad is inspired and guided by the vision of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson.
The Lubavitcher Rebbe's reaching out to every Jewish person with Torah and Mitzvos motivates our outreach efforts and projects.
