The story of Chabad House Bowery began 20 years ago when Rabbi and Sarah Korn moved downtown to deliver a warm, inviting, and soulful Judaism to young Jews in the area. The Korns' melded a classical Chabad House approach with a cool downtown twist. Judaism and one's relationship with God could be hip, dynamic, beautiful, personal and deeply sincere. That special formula has catapulted Chabad House Bowery into the success story it is.
Thousands of college students and young professionals have made their way through our doors: learning, praying, connecting, eating, taking ownership of their Judaism, and asking themselves how will I make a difference to the Jewish people?
