The Chabad House is part of a widespread network of magnificent worldwide institutions in which the Chabad houses, founded by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Menachem Mendel Schneerson, and the purpose of which is to cheerfully, respectfully and reverently bring the wonderful light of Judaism and Chassidism to the multitude of Israel.

Chabad's multifaceted activities in Israel and around the world bring down the wall of polarization and internal alienation of the Jewish people and emphasize the unity and commonality of all. Due to these activities, a multitude of people are closer to original Jewish life and the light of the Jewish Torah.

Chabad regards every Jew to be "a link" in one complete chain that is the People of Israel, and in order to sustain its integrity, it is essential to maintain the Jewish identity and emphatically cling to the eternal values of the people.

The verse from Genesis 28:14 "and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south" become the Rebbe's slogan in connection with the worldwide establishment of Chabad Houses and the Emissaries Empire that are to be found in every town and in every nook and cranny around the world. The Mitzvah of "Loving Ones Fellow Jew" became the central motto for the Rebbe's followers for which the purpose is to prepare the world to welcome the Moshiah.

This website provides information and details concerning the Chabad House's and its diverse activities.

About Us

The Lubavitcher Rebbe – The captain of this generation's "Ship of Judaism", in his concern for each and every Jew, wherever he may be, sent his "Shluhim" – (emissaries) to every nook and cranny around the world in which Jews are found to be living, to enliven them in vibrant Jewish life, to assist them in all aspect of life, with concern and genuine love shown to all Jews. The Rebbe regards that extending a loving hand to jew is the supreme goal, and in this same spirit, so act his emissaries.

The Italian born Rabbi Shimon Elharar and his Israeli born wife, Rina, were selected by the Chabad World Center to act as emissaries for the Lubavitcher Rebbe in the Dead Sea region. They are at the year round service of the local community as well as visiting tourists with an open heart for all.

The Chabad House constitutes an address for assistance in all Jewish matters.

Rabbi Shimon Elharar and his wife Rina arrived at the Dead Sea region, the lowest place on earth, about four years ago as emissaries of the Lubavitcher Rebbe in order to contribute towards the community life for both local residents and tourists alike.
