About
Chabad Hackensack is a home where everyone is welcome - regardless of affiliation, level of knowledge or observance. We are part of a the global network of over 2,500 centers worldwide, providing a wide variety of educational, religious, and social services, according to the teachings of The Lubavitcher Rebbe, toward the goal of making our world better, holier place.
