Chabad of Poway

Chabad of Poway has become a popular center for Jews of all backgrounds who want to learn more about their Jewish roots. Chabad offers a wide variety of educational and spiritual opportunities, including Torah classes and lectures, Shabbaton dinners, and an array of family and social activities. Traditional Jewish values are brought to life in a joyous, non-judgmental atmosphere.

Chabad serves all segments of the Jewish community. Everyone is welcome regardless of their personal level of religious observance. The philosophy is in keeping with the Chabad-Lubavitch approach of joy, scholarship and unconditional acceptance and love for every Jew.

The services are traditional, and are conducted in a joyous, casual atmosphere. Children are included and most welcome. Many of those who attend cannot read Hebrew, yet everyone feels at home. The prayer book is bi-lingual and various English readings are included in the service. Song and commentary add meaning and participation to the prayers.

Plate of ChallosAn important part of our community is the weekly Kiddush Luncheon that follows the Shabbat morning services, where friendships are created and nurtured and we celebrate each other's happy occasions and anniversaries. The Rabbi's & Rebbetzin's approach is that Torah must be presented and experienced in a modern, relevant context and made available to each individual on their level.

30 years after the establishment of our beautiful community and Chabad Center, Rabbi Mendel and Shterna Goldstein moved to Poway. Chabad has seen a fresh new horizon. From the new Jewish Lecture Series, Adult education classes to Jewish Women's Circle, Mommy and Me, Kids Menorah Workshop at Home depot, and the Model Matzah Bakery at Albertsons (just to name a few..) Chabad of Poway sees a great future ahead. 

The Hebrew School Program, under the talented leadership of Rabbi Mendy and Bluma Rubenfeld, translates the Chabad warmth and spirit to the youngsters. The children actually look forward to attending Hebrew School, where they are taught, in addition to Hebrew reading and writing, the meaning of our rich Heritage and the joys of being Jewish. Outings, contests and celebrations add an exciting dimension to the program. The Shul provides a full Bar/Bat Mitzvah program. But Judaism doesn't end there. With the new CTeen Poway initiative every teen in North County has a place to hang out. Rabbi Shuie and Devorah Goldstein have succeed in bringing the local Jewish teens together with amazing programming and fun giving each teen the pride of what it means to be a Jewish teen in the 21st century.
