Introduction to the Site


28th Iyyar 5768

Dear Surfers,

Welcome to our new website!

Back at the beginning of the 20th century, the orthodox Jewish world refrained from having any contact with changes in science and technology out of fear of assimilation with materialism. The Lubavitcher Rebbe, through vision and determination, urged his followers to take advantage of these tools in order to advance Jewish interests throughout the entire world. Satellite broadcasts from his Beit Midrash in Brooklyn to overseas communities became commonplace, the use of the media, to spread Jewish messages across the entire globe, was a matter of tradition. In this spirit, the Chabad World Center became pioneers in building Jewish website on the net.

On the occasion of the launching of our new website, we would like to arrange a trip of the site, in order that you may take best advantage of the diversity of its section.
On each page there is an index, located on the left hand side, from which you will be able to navigate to all areas of the site. The index is divided into four categories:
a. Information about the Chabad house and its activities

b. Tourist information

c. Jewish calendar

d. Material for Jewish studies and Jewish current events


Every week a pamphlet "Likrat Shabbat" is provided and can be downloaded in pdf format. There are also recorded lectures and reference material covering a number of topics. In addition, you can be updated concerning events and lectures throughout the year.

This website is lovingly dedicated to the late Lubavitcher Rebbe, through his inspiration and legacy this website has been realized.
