Shalom & Welcome to our Shul
Imagine worshipping in an atmosphere of total inclusion and acceptance, where you are welcome, in fact encouraged, to ask questions , and where you are implored to be as nonjudgmental of your neighbor as he or she is of you. This is the atmosphere that has been created in this small, unassuming building in Grand Rapids which we call home.
» Shabbat Services

Our Shabbat services are traditional. They are led by our much beloved, Cantor and Rabbi, and chanted by members of our minyan. Services are conducted primarily in Hebrew, with some English passages sprinkled in for further understanding. The truth is that only each individual among us knows how he or she best communicates with G-d. At Chabad the language you use or the pace you set for yourself are not of paramount importance. Our prayer books are written in both Hebrew and English, and the page numbers are announced continuously so you may always catch up if you prefer to meditate at a slower speed.. Please connect with the day and with G-d and with your own soul in whatever personal manner suits you best.


The tunes are old, familiar ones, and they are sung by those of us who know the words and by those of us who can only hum along, with all the gusto befitting the joy of the Sabbath.

» Kidush

Please join us for our weekly Kiddish immediately following the service. The kosher Kiddish is provided on a volunteer basis by members of our minyan who may have a simcha to celebrate, a milestone to mark, or a family member they wish to honor. Often the Kiddish is prepared simply to honor the Sabbath. Our Kiddish affords us a collective opportunity to break bread, to partake of the Rebbetzin's most delicious and widely praised cooking, to share the news of the week, relax into the Shabbat tempo, and enjoy the warmth and companionship that emanate from this community.
