A man once came to see the Lubavitcher Rebbe to thank him for having dispatched a Chabad emissary to bring the joy of Judaism and the spirit of caring to a “little Jew in a wayward community.” The Rebbe responded: “There is no such thing as a ‘little Jew’ or a ‘wayward community.’ In the scope of G‑d’s master-plan, the fate of a single soul holds the same cosmic and monumental significance as that of the entire world.” This outlook – so essential to Judaism, in general, and Chabad, in particular – is indeed the guiding principle behind the ongoing outreach, educational and social service programs of Chabad of Marina del Rey.

Chabad of Marina del Rey means many things to many people. To some it’s a youth center; to others it’s an adult education institute, a synagogue and a community center; and to others a social service center for the needy and the troubled. Indeed, there is little within the realm of outreach and education that is outside of the sphere of focus of this multidimensional organization.

We invite you to all of our upcoming programs and activities, and offer you to reach out to us to to learn about a myriad of learning opportunities and a wide variety of Jewish resources. We welcome you to explore and enjoy and hope to see you in person at one of our coming events.
