Inspired by the Lubavitcher Rebbe’s unconditional love for every Jew, and his global vision to create a home for all Jews everywhere, Rabbi Hirschy and Elkie Zarchi moved to Cambridge, Massachusetts in September of 1997. On their first Shabbat in town, they hosted one Harvard student. Today, 5,000+ people find community each year at one of their centers.
Whether you’re a family with young children, a young professional in your 20s and 30s, or a college or graduate student, vibrant and joyful Jewish life permeates the city of Cambridge and beyond. If you’re looking for community, want to explore your identity, or expand your knowledge of your Jewish heritage, Jewish Cambridge is a home for you.
