Purchasing a new home for Chabad Berkeley

What is Chabad Berkeley?


Where young and old come to explore the richness of their heritage.
Where people come to help or to be helped.
Where people care. And smile. And live life to the fullest.

With its warm and inviting approach, Chabad Berkeley is a place where people from all walks of life—regardless of background, affiliation or level of observance—feel at home. 

Chabad Berkeley offers Minyan, Shabbat services, Friday night dinners, Holiday Programming, Lectures, Young Adults Nights, Women's Circle, Men's Events, Jewish Kids Fun Zone, Bikur Cholim Visitation, Prison Chaplaincy, Food Distribution, Counseling, and Financial Assistance. 

We proudly serve residents and professionals in the greater East Bay area as well as travelers from across the world.


For many years, we have dreamed of a center of our own — filled with the pursuit of knowledge and the spirit of community. That day is at hand. The contract is signed.  The location is perfect- Centrally located 1708-1710 University Avenue.  The campaign to build the new Berkeley Chabad House is underway. The fulfillment of this dream depends on people of initiative and compassion, of vision and generosity.

We have raised $1 million dollars thus far.

Together we need to raise $300,000 to make this dream a reality.

Let’s join hands to reach the finish line—for us and for all future generations.


To that end, 3 generous donors have come forward with a proposal to help Chabad thrive this year. They will each donate $75,000 to our center, provided that it is matched by an equal donation from our you, our community. For the next 3 days only, your dollar will have 3 times the impact!

How can I help?

You can be a partner in purchasing a new Chabad House to benefit the residents of Berkeley by contributing to our building campaign this Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, and by spreading the word!   Maimonides says that every good deed, no matter how small, tips the scale of humanity toward goodness.    Today you have the opportunity to see the impact of that deed Quadrupled!
