Mazal Tov!!   

Chabad of Laguna Niguel has purchased the $5.1 million dollar former Moulton Niguel Water building, located on an acre of land at the corner of La Paz and Avila Road – a prime spot in our city. 

Our deepest gratitude to the dedicated supporters, community members, friends and family from around the world. YOU MADE THIS HAPPEN! 

We thank Hashem for bringing us to this day, and to the Rebbe for his continued blessings and guidance. It is truly a monumental event for the community, and for the city of Laguna Niguel, as this will be the first Jewish edifice in our beautiful city.

The exciting journey is just beginning!

There are many improvements that will have to be made before we are able to occupy the building, including bringing the facility up to code. Our ultimate goal is a fully remodeled building, one that our team of architects and designers have been hard at work developing, utilizing every inch of the 12,000 sf in the most spectacular way.

If you have not had the opportunity to get involved, it is not too late to be a part of this miracle. Learn more here.

Lubavitch.com: One person at a time, a small California community outgrew their existing space. Now they purchased a new 12,000 square foot building to house Chabad of Laguna Niguel’s numerous activities.


Rabbi Mendy Paltiel knew the Moulton Niguel Water District building well — you can’t live in California’s southern Orange County without visiting once or twice. But it wasn’t water that brought him to the Water District’s monthly board meeting last November. It was a chance to move his overflowing Chabad house to a new home. 

The Chabad Jewish Center of Laguna Niguel, California, opened its doors in early 2006. It might have just been Rabbi Mendy and Mrs. Kreinie Paltiel’s living room, but they quickly grew it into the nucleus of a warm Jewish community. A year and a half later, Rabbi Paltiel secured a two-thousand square foot space in a nearby office park, where Chabad’s growing bevy of activities soon attracted substantial crowds. “We started with Shabbat and Sunday morning prayers,” Rabbi Paltiel says. “Whenever someone observed a yartzeit, we pulled ten men together to ensure there’d be a minyan.” Gradually, a thriving daily minyan evolved.
