Where it all began...

It began as a "pipe dream" but today the dream of many has become a reality. Nestled, right between the busy Austin Street shopping strip and Metropolitan Avenue, only blocks away from the beautiful Forest Hills Gardens, Chabad has established a new 'home away from home', for you.

Chabad of the Gardens is focused on serving the Jewish communities of Forest Hills, Kew Gardens, Parkside, Middle Village, Glendale, Ridgewood & Woodhaven, Queens. Neighborhoods, rich in culture, architecture and class, like Judaism.


Boutique Style Community Center!

Chabad of the Gardens is unique in the sense that it is a "boutique style" community center, concerned with and focused on personal growth, connection between man and fellow man, and of course the connection between man and G‑d. We serve to assist each individual in cultivating a respect and care for mankind as well as love and reverence for the Al-mighty G‑d.
