Chabad of West Orange has served the diverse Jewish community of our region for over 20 years. Chabad is world-renowned for shaping the landscape wherever they are into a blossoming garden, where Judaism and its precious ideals ﬂourish.
Spearheading a fantastic array of activities and programs, Chabad of West Orange brings joy, knowledge, inspiration and pride into the hearts and souls of all Jews who participate. The purpose of Chabad’s outreach efforts are to touch the lives of thousands of men, women and children in the area — the goal of each individual Chabad Rabbi is to see the individual Jew thrives and is connected to his/her heritage.
Chabad provides professionally developed Jewish learning courses, ongoing companionship for our elderly population, events that inspire and thrill our youth helping to shape and mold the next generation, critical social services to help the needy, the mourners and families with children or adults of special needs.
Chabad of West Orange has successfully created an authentic Jewish community united in the common goal of disseminating the light, goodness and kindness of Yiddishkeit (aspects of Judaism). We invite you to join us for “Lamplighters — A Celebration Of Jewish Life.”
Jewish Learning Institute: Curious Tales of the Talmud: Finding Personal Meaning in the Legends of our Sages
Everyone loves a good story. Knowing this, the sages of the Talmud used stories to encode messages about life that are far too deep and profound to communicate directly. This course decodes some of these extraordinary Talmudic mysteries to uncover layer within layer of insight into the nature of life, the universe, G-d, and man.
Six Mondays | April 22- May 27

Rosh Chodesh Society Upcoming Programs (Time & Place TBA)
Thursday, May 9 | Rosh Chodesh Sivan: Communication
As humans we have a unique ability to form deep relationships through verbal communication. Miscommunication is also the reason for much discord and heartbreak. The Torah’s guidelines for conversation and gossip ensure that the words we say work to enhance our relationships by avoiding areas of conflict and unintentional harm. This lesson also offers Jewish wisdom to sharpen our communication and listening skills and make us better partners in our relationships.
Sunday, June 9 | Rosh Chodesh Tammuz: Faith and Knowledge
There are rational proofs for the existence of G-d, but is our faith reason-based? More than a lesson about G-d, this is a lesson about ourselves, exploring the human capacity for reason and critical thinking alongside the inborn need to reach beyond our limited comprehension to marvel at, and envelop ourselves in that which our left brains cannot possibly comprehend.
