IN THE BEGINNING

From a small synagogue in Brooklyn in the winter of 1951, the Rebbe transformed a small Chassidic dynasty of 200 years into the largest Jewish outreach organization.  Today, Chabad-Lubavitch has 3,500 centers across the globe. 

Chabad is known for it's non-judgmental, all are welcome style, and making traditional & authentic Judaism accessible and meaningful, in a modern and fast-paced world.

Growing up, we each dreamed of joining the Rebbe's "army" of emissaries in whatever part of the world we were needed. Just a couple of years ago, our dreams became reality when we moved to Altoona.  We feel privileged to serve the Jewish community and college students together with our four daughters, Mushka, Fruma, Toba and Baila.
