Chabad of the Upper West Side is part of a world-wide organization of Chabad-Lubavitch, under the leadership and guidance of the  Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson.

There is no mystery about our philosophy:  Love every Jew; educate every Jew; reach out to help every Jew. We open our arms and hearts to all, regardless of education or affiliation. That is a commitment that we have honored on the Upper West Side since 1984.

We are located at 166 W. 97th Street, corner of Amsterdam and our center is bustling with life!
