Chabad of Downtown Boston 

The Jewish After School Program is a project of Chabad of Downtown Boston.


Established in 2011,  Chabad's goal is to a create warm, engaging, and joyous Jewish community in Downtown Boston.

Our philosophy is non-judgmental and friendly. We welcome the entire Jewish community regardless of background or affiliation.

The Chabad center is the living legacy of the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Shneerson, motivated by his profound love for every Jew and spurred by his boundless optimism. The Rebbe set into motion a dazzling array of institutions (currently over 3,300) to serve every Jew on every corner of the globe.
