A Word From Our Director

Dear Friend,

Thank you for your interest in Chabad at Stony Brook, where every Jew is family!

If you have been seeking a synagogue and community where you can feel a sense of true belonging, then I believe your search is over! That’s because warmth, friendship and acceptance for all, are our most basic ingredients.  I am confident that you have finally found the synagogue that you and your loved ones can call home. 

At our Chabad Center people tend to develop lasting friendships and truly feel a part of the community. You’ll find services that are spiritually uplifting and meaningful, plus sermons that are relevant, inspirational and topical.  You will also enjoy our unique combination of cherished traditional values and contemporary ideas that successfully meet the needs of modern Jewish families. 

I am certain that you will be able to feel comfortable and inspired, no matter your level of observance.  This, plus amazing family and youth programming and a strong emphasis on congregational participation are some of the reasons our center has grown so rapidly.

Whether you are searching for a childcare center or a Hebrew School for your school age child, a Woman's Club or a Center for Adult Study, Chabad may be what you have been searching for. 

We have two conveniant community locations, in Setauket & Lake Grove. A third satellite site is just alongside SUNY Stony Brook serving as a 'Home away from Home' for the university student. We have a dynamic, friendly and energetic staff , and our membership fees are deliberately reasonable and affordable.

I fully realize that this decision you are about to make is very important to you, so please don’t take my word for it.  Take the time to learn more about our unique approach and special programming by attending services and experiencing our special community center environment firsthand.  If you have further questions or if you’d like to arrange a time to meet with me, please contact me at 631-585-0521.

Best wishes for a happy and healthy new year,

Rabbi Chaim Grossbaum
