OUR NEW BUILDING

Our new building will include a state of the art kosher kitchen, a synagogue and classrooms for private and group study. Additional space will be used for communal gatherings and shabbat meals.

Of special note is the new building’s design. Created by Yelena Lembersky of Aspen Design, its classic tudor facade replicates the world-famous design of Chabad’s Brooklyn headquarters. Known popularly by its address on 770 Eastern Parkway - or simply 770 - the building has become a symbol of Chabad’s outreach around the world.

In Hasidic tradition, the synagogue where a rebbe prayed and taught takes on special significance. In absence of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, the rebbe’s court becomes “Beis Rebeinu Sheb’bavel” - the house of our teacher in Babylon - a quasi-Temple in its own right.

Hasidim have paid homage to the building where the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, taught Torah, prayed and dispensed advice to thousands by replicating 770’s design in cities around the world. Sites include Kfar Chabad and Jerusalem in Israel, the UCLA campus in Los Angeles, Melbourne, Milan, S. Paulo and Buenos Aires.

By copying 770’s classic look, we hope to bring the Rebbe’s message of boundless love for all and passion for spreading the light of Torah to the farthest corners of the world to the heart of the Wellesley-Weston community.

Please join us in making this vision a reality!
