The Melville & Huntington Chabad Center is one of New York's most unorthodox Orthodox Synagogues - a popular center for Jews of all backgrounds who want to learn more about their Jewish roots. Located on the corner of Sweet Hollow & Old Country Road in Melville, Chabad offers a wide variety of educational and spiritual opportunities, including Torah classes and lectures, Shabbaton dinners, and an array of family and social activities. Traditional Jewish values are brought to life in a joyous, non-judgmental atmosphere.

Melville Chabad serves all segments of the Jewish community. Everyone is welcome regardless of their personal level of religious observance. The philosophy is in keeping with the Chabad-Lubavitch approach of joy, scholarship and unconditional acceptance and love for every Jew.

Chabad is under the spiritual guidance of Rabbi Asher Vaisfiche, a warm, caring and energetic individual, who formed the congregation in 1991. The rabbi's approach is that Torah must be presented and experienced in a modern, relevant context and made available to each individual on their own level. Rabbi Vaisfiche and his wife Miriam are emissaries of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson.

The services are traditional, and are conducted in a joyous, casual atmosphere. Children are included and most welcome. Many of those who attend cannot read Hebrew, yet everyone feels at home. The prayer book is bi-lingual and various English readings are included in the service. Song and commentary add meaning and participation to the prayers.

Plate of ChallosAn important part of our community is the weekly Kiddush Luncheon that follows the Shabbat morning services, where friendships are created and nurtured and we celebrate each other's happy occasions and anniversaries.

The Hebrew School Program, under the talented leadership of Mrs Miriam Vaisfiche, translates the Chabad warmth and spirit to the youngsters. The children actually look forward to attending Hebrew School, where they are taught, in addition to Hebrew reading and writing, the meaning of our rich Heritage and the joys of being Jewish. Outings, contests and celebrations add an exciting dimension to the program. The Hebrew School provides a full Bar/Bat Mitzvah program.
