Chabad Jewish Center

Chabad of Lakeland

Today you have an amazing opportunity to make a difference.

Chabad Jewish Center was established in Lakeland, Florida in 2010 by Rabbi Moshe & Libby Lazaros. We are an educational and social services nonprofit organization. Thanks to your help, in nearly seven years we have grown by leaps and bounds. 

What does Chabad offer the community?

Communal social events every holiday

Public Menorah lighting events in Lakeland, Winter Haven, Lake Wales and Sebring

Synagogue services and meals every Shabbat and Yom Tov

Monthly lectures by internationally acclaimed speakers

Hebrew school and preschool

CTeen for high school students and Chabad on Campus for college students

Home and office visitation

Hospital and prison chaplaincy services

Calendar and educational brochures mailed throughout the year

Kosher administration of citrus industry

So what do you need from me? Doesn't Chabad headquarters pay for everything?

Contrary to popular belief, every Chabad institution is financially independent and solely responsible to raise its operating budget. We do not receive regular funding from a central organization. We also do not need to pay any type of franchise fee. The majority of our funds are raised locally, and every dollar is put to use locally.

To continue to provide these vital services, and expand our impact, we have set a goal to raise $100,000 in the next 24 hours.

How does the campaign work?

For the next 24 hours, every single dollar you donate to Chabad will be matched three times by our amazing group of donors.

You give $50 = Chabad receives $200

You give $100 = Chabad receives $400

You give $250 = Chabad receives $1,000

This campaign is all or nothing, the entire goal must be met within 24 hours or all donations will be returned.

Our generous matching donors believe in our work. They want to see us grow. But only if the community joins in! They’ve agreed to quadruple every dollar donated, on one condition: we must meet our goal of $100,000 by 6:00pm on Thursday, December 29.

Now let's do this, together!

Goal Not Met

This campaign will only be funded if the goal is reached within 24 hours.
