Chabad Center for Jewish Life is dedicated to strengthening the Jewish communities of Merrick, Bellmore & Wantagh through a wide variety of educational programs and social services, catering to Jews of all ages and walks of life.

Chabad offers a the full-day Jewish preschool, daycare and summer camp for children ages 1-4 years old; a Jewish women’s circle, adult education classes and holiday programming.  In October, 2012, Chabad launched the Circle of Hope-a program which provides  awareness, emotional support and hands-on help to individuals and their families coping with breast cancer and other illnesses.  The Circle of Hope offers a wig bank and weekly support groups for those going through cancer.  In addition, they offer monthly cooking programs where local teens come together and cook meals which are then distributed to those who need it most.

Chabad recently purchased a 25,000 square-foot campus to accommodate the growth of its school, camp and programs, and they are planning to build a Jewish Community Center to service the entire community.  In conjunction with the Merrick-Bellmore Mikveh Association, they are building the first mikvah in the area. Chabad Center for Jewish Life looks forward to even more growth and excitement in the years to come!
