Every Jew Matters

A Jew is a Jew is a Jew. Regardless of your affiliation or religious affiliation, you belong simply because you are you. Driven by the inspiration and teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Chabad lives by the maxim "Love every Jew as you love yourself." Our goal is for every Jew who walks through our doors to feel valued, cared for, and supported.

Authentic Judaism can be modern and appealing

Who says that religious observance is boring? Classic, modern and beautiful events bring traditional observance into the 21st century in a relevant way. With a consistent, classy Jewish presence, Chabad helps you celebrate your birthright.

Behind our Logo

Menorah

The menorah, symbolizing the eternal Jewish flame within each soul, receives a Bermuda upgrade with a triangular shape in the center.

Triangle

The triangle alludes to the iconic shape of the Bermuda Triangle, commonly associated with the island of Bermuda.

Chabad

The title Chabad is a mnemonic for the three processes a person goes through when exploring his Judaism: "wisdom, understanding, application." This three-stage process, for which Chabad is named, is symbolized by the triangle.

In Kabbalistic thought, the number three corresponds to tiferet, beauty and harmony. Chabad Bermuda strives for a harmonious connection between the community, visitors and Judaism.
