At Chabad

At Chabad of Ellicott City we believe in the power of connectivity; connecting Jews to the joy and warmth of Judaism, connecting people, to harness the power of the community, and connecting every individual to their inner self, to harness the power of the soul.

We are dedicated to reaching out with love to Jews of all affiliations and creating a welcoming home where everyone can experience the warmth of Judaism at their own pace.

We offer a variety of social, spiritual, and educational opportunities. Stay tuned for Shabbat dinners, social activities, adult education classes, holiday parties, Shabbat and Holiday services, and much more!

We welcome everyone from all backgrounds regardless of religious affiliation or level of observance.
