In the fall of 2005, Chabad of Laguna Niguel began in a humble living room – a small room with a big heart and even bigger dreams. The dream of creating a center for Jewish life for our community. We quickly outgrew the living room, and a leased space was soon bustling with activity. Before long we were bursting at the seams and annexed the adjoining unit for our rapidly growing Sunday School. It became clear that Chabad had blossomed into a multifaceted educational, outreach, and social service organization serving a constituency well beyond those who regularly attend its programs. It had become a vibrant and dynamic part of the broader Jewish community in Laguna Niguel. 

It was time to expand again!

With the initiation of the purchase of a 12,000 square foot facility, we asked ourselves, what is at the heart of our vision for our community?

A space that emanates warmth, and teaches a dynamic, joyful Judaism that empowers individuals from diverse backgrounds to connect with their rich heritage.

A space that provides every Jew with a sense of belonging, regardless of background, level of knowledge, or relationship with their Jewish roots.

A space where people can come together as family, to grow, pray, celebrate, study, and support each other.

A space for innovative programs that will enrich the soul and fuel the spirit. 

A Jewish home in every sense of the word.

In short, our vision is to develop a center for Jewish life that fosters meaningful connections and growth in every aspect of Jewish life; one whose impact extends far beyond its physical walls. It is our great privilege to pioneer its development, and we invite you to partner with us in this exciting and historic journey.

Together we build!

With Blessings,
