CHABAD of the East Valley AT A GLANCE

 

PAST
 

In its first four years, Chabad of the East Valley established a Hebrew School, Shabbat services, ongoing adult education opportunities, holiday programs for every Jewish holiday, The Living Legacy series for children, and the Jewish Women’s Circle. Rabbi Deitsch and community members have established a thriving volunteer program, visiting community shelters, hospitals, senior centers and prisons.
 

A true Jewish community has been created through these projects and programs.  

PRESENT

Chabad of the East Valley has grown tremendously over the past few years in many ways. In fact, it has become a victim of its own success. The present facility (1,800 square-ft. storefront) can no longer accommodate the growing number of Hebrew School students, holiday participants, and those wishing to join the ever-growing roster of activities and services.    
 

The following table illustrates continued growth and interest in Chabd of the East Valley up until the present day:

FUTURE
 

The overwhelming response to Chabad of the East Valley’s creative, all-inclusive programs demonstrate the community’s need and desire for Chabad’s permanent presence in the East Valley of Chandler AZ.
 

Chabad of the East Valley expects continued growth based on our current waiting list for Hebrew School, increasing participation year after year, and frequent inquiries about preschool.
 

In addition, the 2002 Jewish Population Study conducted by Jewish Federation of greater phoenix, indicates a 130% growth over the past ten years of the east Valley Jewish population . This trend is expected to continue.
