The backbone of any community is the infrastructure and spirit to care for those in need. Social Services play a prominent role in the Chabad Center for Jewish Life’s plans and activities.

Circle of Hope
Cancer Support Services

Circle of Hope Cancer Support Services Circle of Hope provides awareness, emotional support and hands-on help to individuals and their families coping with breast cancer and other illnesses. It is a place where the community, medical professionals and their families join forces to create free and confidential services and resources. The services and support groups are offered in a lovely, home-like suite at the Chabad Center for Jewish Life, where patients form an educational network and connect with others undergoing similar treatments. All services are free and confidential.
The Setton Family
Kosher Soup Kitchen & Food Pantry

The Setton Family Kosher Soup Kitchen and Food Pantry was created in response to economic need. Individuals or families in need receive a weekly package that includes groceries, fresh produce, meat and poultry, and Shabbat food items. Moving these services into the new Jewish Center for Jewish Life and providing proper facilities will enable us to expand and improve the service, and also offer a drop-in center for those in need.
