Chabad in Prague

The Chabad House along with Ahavat Yosef Synagogue have been playing its role in Prague since 1996 when Rabbi Manis Barash arrived with his family to open the Chabad Center in the heart of the former Jewish Quarter, famous for its unique history and rich Jewish life. Today, the visitors may walk the steps of great sages like the Maharal, visit many beautiful synagogues and other places devoted to Judaism.

Chabad Prague has already become well known not only among foreigners visiting, but also among local Jews who come regularly to attend sevices and educational programs.

Chabad of Prague continues to move forward and grow; from a modest beginning twenty years ago, today we have a large, beautiful and modern center located on U Milosrdných 6, housing an active Synagogue and a meat restaurant.
