Dear Friend,

The Chabad Jewish Center is a unique and vibrant center dedicated to bring the beauty of our heritage and the joy of our traditions, as well as, provide care, inspiration, hospitality and education to Jews from all walks of life.

Whether it’s Friday Night Dinners, Holiday Outreach Programs, Synagogue Services or Adult Education Classes, our hearts and our doors are open to any and every Jew – regardless of background, affiliation or level of observance.

Through our popular and ever-growing summer camp, Hebrew school and multifaceted youth programs, children of all ages are able to develop a strong sense of Jewish pride and a rich awareness of their heritage.

For those who are unfortunately experiencing a crisis of any sort - be it physical, financial, emotional or otherwise - Chabad is there to offer comfort and support through a wide range of non-denominational social service programs. These include Crisis Counseling, Hospital Visitation, Prison Chaplaincy and more.

Chabad makes a total commitment to every Jew. A commitment to respond to any need.

A commitment to have an open door for people from all walks of life to come in at any time and know that our home is their home - no prerequisites, no requirements; just a warm and accepting, non-judgmental, vibrant and educational atmosphere. No one is ever turned away or made unwelcome because of lack of funds.

We have made our commitment. Now we need you to partner with us.

While Chabad Jewish Center of Martin / S. Lucie is part of an international organization on the front lines of Jewish education and activism, now numbering over 3000 centers around the globe, each Center is funded independently. We must emphasize that we receive no funding from Chabad-Lubavitch Headquarters in New York or any other regional Chabad office – all funds to support our organization are raised and used exclusively by the Chabad Jewish Center of Martin / S. Lucie.

Chabad Jewish Center has many partners in the community who generously offer their support, however, since Chabad Jewish Center charges no membership dues or fees and relies completely on voluntary support of generous individuals in the community, we must expand our circle of supporters.

So, as the Jewish New Year is about to begin, I ask you to please become a partner today by joining the Chabad Jewish Center Partnership Program and taking one share or more of our budget today! Our annual operating budget has reached over $300,000.00; witDonate Online (190)hout your help all this would be impossible. Together we can build a strong Jewish community in the Martin / S. Lucie area. Now more than ever, your financial assistance is most needed and appreciated.For your convenience you can donate online by clicking the icon on the right.

My wife Daniella and our children, join me in wishing you a happy and healthy New Year with peace, security and prosperity in our homeland, the holy land of Israel and around the world.

With Blessings and Wishes for a Shana Tova,   

Rabbi S. Uminer
