About
Chabad of Altoona is a home where everyone is welcome - regardless of affiliation, level of knowledge or observance.
We strive to create a warm, welcoming environment to explore and experience our heritage in a non-judgmental and inviting atmosphere.
We are founded on the principle that, while 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, to enhance the experience of being Jewish, to learn and enjoy Judaism.

Daily Thought
This experience, to give life, to watch it grow, to be torn apart by it, to receive pleasure from it, and to give life again—for this the soul descended from its ethereal heights. And when it shall return to there, enveloped in these memories, it will finally know their depth. And with them travel ever higher and higher.
