 Quotable Quotes:

 “To us, a visit to Chabad Jewish Center is really like coming home. It is a place where everybody is welcome to come and discover and experience the joys of Judaism. It is a place where one can learn on an individual level and experience their own spirituality. It is a place where the rabbis and their wives blend a personally undiluted and uncompromised Judaism together with an unconditional love and care and lack of judgment. In other words, Chabad is like a big warm hug.”

 Howard Haas, former dean of Tarbut V’Torah
