Chabad of NW Bergen County was founded by Rabbi Chanoch and Mimi Kaplan in August 2000, as a Jewish Community Center to serve the needs of residents in the NW Bergen County area.

Our philosophy is simple: Although Jews may 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, enhance the Jewish experience and all in an enjoyable and engaging manner. With tolerance, sincerity and deeply rooted values, Chabad can help you find and develop that Jewish spark in your heart.
    • We believe that Jews are Jews are Jews, regardless of affiliation or personal level of observance. 
    • We don't charge for synagogue membership or pastoral services. Voluntary donations are appreciated but not required. 
    • We have no checklist for knowledge, observance, beliefs or lifestyles of the people who attend our programs. Everyone is welcome.
Jewish faith rests on a firm bedrock of logic and intellect. Our tradition encourages us to inquire, to delve, to understand. With proper study and comprehension, we can transform the proverbial leap of faith into a stronger step of faith.
