Founding Principles
Chabad of the Space & Treasure Coasts is founded on the principle that, while Jews embrace many levels of observance in their personal lives, there should be a place for all Jews no labels, no affiliations, to develop a sense of community and enhance the experience of being Jewish. We cater to hundreds of families from all backgrounds, offering Jewish educational programs for all ages in an accepting and innovative setting where everyone who walks through our doors feels welcome.  There's palpable warmth at our synagogue services that melts away any embarrassment for those unfamiliar with, or new to, communal prayer. Come feel for yourself the family atmosphere that makes our services such a delightful experience.

Growth. Connection. 
Two little words that symbolize what we stand for. Two big words that tell you what's so special about us.

Many people come to study or pray here from all sorts of backgrounds, many different religious affiliations, and all levels of Judaic observance. But there is one thing they have in common: a connection is made and a friendship has been formed. Some might seek to expand their Jewish horizons, increase their knowledge in areas of Judaism or for some, to grow in Jewish observance. But they all have found acceptance and leave with a lifted spirit.

Our Rabbi
Warmly, gently, humorously, humbly, but persistently, Rabbi Konikov, a world class Rabbi and scholar, urges everyone onward and upward, based on the teachings of Chassidism and the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneersohn, that every Jew is precious and important because he is a Jew, and endowed with a G‑dly soul.

One more Torah class. Try out a mitzvah. Explore your roots, take one step further on the path of Judaism; tomorrow maybe another. What, when, how much and how fast is up to you. But take a step forward. As long one lives one must keep on growing.

A person, like a plant, needs warmth to grow. Our Chabad Jewish Community Center is legendary for its warmth, its friendliness, its caring, its hospitality. The words “shul family” are so often used here, that they've actually become a cliche.  

Come visit us and see for yourself. Be amazed at what you can be!
