It goes without saying that at Chabad, we are taking every possible step and precaution to assure the safety and well-being of everyone in the community and beyond.

Obviously, anyone in need of any support or help due to this unique circumstance we are in now, should please not hesitate to contact any of the Rabbis or staff at Chabad.

If you know seniors or anyone who cannot go out and is in need of something, let us know and we will do our best to help in a safe way. Please let’s remember: While we might need to be in physical isolation… NO ONE SHOULD BE IN SPIRITUAL AND EMOTIONAL ISOLATION! We at Chabad are here to help and assist!

Chabad’s Calgary Campus & Edmonton’s Chabad House are closed for all programs and services. All our programs and Services are moving to online platforms. 

Our focus is also on cleaning, sanitizing and making our Calgary’s commercial kitchen ready for cooking and baking for Pesach as per guidelines and advice of our government.

We are very hopeful and are working hard on assuring that the "Faigel Shapiro Kosher Pantry" is in the position of tending to everyone’s needs as every year and even more, with the hope of helping many communities in Alberta!

We are working on bringing the kitchen to a position of assuring Pesach and Seder needs for all.

Also, please make sure your homes are protected! If you need a new Mezuzah, or if you need your old Mezuzos checked, we're here to help you make any arrangements.

Let us all remember the Rebbe’s message: One act of Goodness and Kindness will indeed change the world! May Hashem bless everyone with good health NOW! May Hashem make an end to this NOW! MOSHIACH NOW!

On this Shabbat and the Holiday of Shavuot (Monday-Tuesday), we will dedicate our candlelighting, prayers, hearing and studying of the 10 Commandments, Kiddush, festive meals and L'chayim to Israel and the safety of all the Jewish people throughout the world!

Instead of a personal recording, I invite you to watch this very inspiring and G‑dly words from the Rebbe - from the 1967 Lag B'Omer Parade, less than a week before the Six-Day War.
