About Us

  • Chabad of West Boca Raton is guided by the idea that there should be a place where everyone can feel at home, within a Jewish context. There should be a Center for Jewish discovery where open-minded exploration is the key, not background or affiliation.

    Ours is a place where Judaism is celebrated joyfully and meaningfully, where Judaism sheds relevant perspective to our daily lives. With opportunities to expand the mind, excite the heart and touch the soul, our Center offers a wide range of learning venues, for all ages, where questions are encouraged and embraced. 

    Located on 441 between Glades and Yamato, our Center is premised on the idea that every individual has an indispensable contribution to make to the totality of the human experience. 


    Today, more than 3,500 Chabad-Lubavitch institutions span over forty countries on six continents. Our educational and social service institutions serve all Jews - and many non-Jews - regardless of affiliation or background. In the United States alone, more than 850 centers serve communities in every state in the Union.

    Here in Boca Raton, in 1990, newlyweds Rabbi Zalman and Chani Bukiet contemplated their future. In Chabad, the relevant question facing a young couple is not whether they should devote their lives to Jewish continuity and education, but rather where they should settle to work for this ideal. Chabad recognized that Jews were moving west, and that there was a growing need for Jewish infrastructure in the West Boca area. So, the Bukiet’s moved to West Boca Raton. They used their condominium 'headquarters' to strengthen Jewish identity in the area, with holiday programming and classes for adults and children.

    As our programming expanded, we saw a need to create a home of our own, heightening the effectiveness and scope of our programming, schools and synagogue.

    In 2016, we completed construction on our beautiful building and added Rabbi Moshe and Shaina Kramer to the team to continue spreading light, warmth and love of Judaism.

    Let’s continue to build our community together!
