] For all those interested. I joined with my family over a year ago it has been an unbelievable experience.

The Chai Center is one of New York's most unorthodox Synagogues- a popular center for Jews of all backgrounds and affiliations who wish to learn more about their Jewish roots. Located on 1 1/2 acres on Vanderbilt Parkway in Dix Hills, The Chai Center offers a wide variety of educational and spiritual opportunities, including Hebrew School, Preschool, Torah classes, Shabbaton dinners and an array of Jewish Holiday programs.

Traditional Jewish values are brought to life in a joyous, non-judgemental atmosphere.
Everyone is welcome at the Chai Center, regardless of one's level of religious observance. The philosophy is in keeping with the Chabad-Lubavitch approach of joy, scholarship and unconditional acceptance and love of every Jew.

For those who may not be familiar with Chabad-Lubavitchers and Chabad centers, they are missionaries and missions to non-Torah observant Jews.

Default Hi, Walter

Hi, Walter

All I can say is from my own personal experience. My family and myself are completely non observant and we really enjoy going to the chai center. The Rabbi and the growing Jewish community are so not judgemental and they dont try to push you to do things you dont want to do. They dont label Jews nor are there and politics going on over there. They try to make sure everyone is comfortable. My children look forward to going to the childrens group. My wife skips going to the gym to go to classes. What I can tell you is that they do promote Jewish awareness and Jewish pride amongst the youth and they do it with joy and allot of excitement and fun. I got to go but we'll keep in touch. Thats all for now. Bye and have a great day!
