A Vibrant Jewish Community

Fostering a dynamic Jewish community is our shared aspiration! Picture a lively space hosting a myriad of events catering to all ages and diverse backgrounds. Our vision encompasses a haven for educating our children about Judaism, Israel, and their heritage—a place for both learning and socializing. Imagine combining this with the convenience of a full kosher store, delectable takeout options, and gourmet kosher meals.

Preschool & After school 

Lamorinda area is best known for its emphasis on education and the high caliber schools. One of the great areas that can be improved is the availability of Jewish Preschools as well as after school programs for elementary and middle school.
Chabad of Lamorinda is actively engaged in a transformative project to realize this vision. The plan involves constructing a second floor and a rooftop space, creating a beautiful preschool conducive to the advancement of Jewish education and skills. 

This expansion not only provides an enriched learning environment but also facilitates the establishment of a Jewish afterschool program. This program aims to offer a space for children to socialize, complete homework, and receive additional Jewish education while affording their parents more time for work and personal responsibilities.


Simultaneously, Chabad of Lamorinda is dedicated to enhancing the BAY KOSHER market by incorporating a fully equipped commercial kitchen. This kitchen will be instrumental in crafting complete Shabbat and Holiday meals available for takeout on a weekly basis. Picture the enticing aroma of freshly baked challah and the allure of a full gourmet meal. Additionally, our plan includes introducing the only kosher takeout offering Shawarma and a variety of delicious hot foods throughout the day here in Contra Costa.

Capital Campaign

To bring this transformative project to fruition, we are starting a capital campaign seeking to raise $1.3 million, covering the entire scope of this initiative. Anticipating an 18-month timeline for permits, final plans, and construction, our goal is to have everything ready for the 2024-2025 school year.

We invite you to be a crucial part of this endeavor! Your partnership will contribute not only to the realization of this project but also to the continuity of Jewish heritage and the vibrancy of our Jewish community. Together, let's create a space that fosters Jewish identity and community life for generations to come.
