Chabad of Buffalo has number of services we provide.


The process of life includes many types of pressure, strain and difficult experiences, Chabad help individuals and families live through the ups and downs in the most positive way. Jewish teaching itself provides a great resource for this. At a difficult time, a chat with the Rabbi or his wife may well help a person see things in a clearer perspective.

At the Chabad House one can get help in personal counseling on any aspect of life including marriage counseling. When necessary the Chabad House can help a person in need to find suitable professional help.


Hospital and Nursing Home Visitation

A prolonged visit to the hospital is a sobering experience: things taken for granted are suddenly scarce, and patients almost always find themselves reevaluating their life's priorities. There is often no better time for compassionate guidance and support, and the numerous representatives of Chabad supply it in ample measure.

Chabad staff bring flowers before Shabbat, good cheer, holiday spirit and hope to the Jewish patients they visit in their rounds to area places of healing.

To make use of this service, please contact us at 688-1642. May you and yours have only good health!


Prison Visitation

To the prison inmate the day passes by without reason. One day is no different from the next; an endless parade of time. The world outside is distant. There is little opportunity to develop, to grow, to change.

Chabad seeks to bring life and spiritual movement to one's soul; to bring a sense of purpose into one's existence. By showing a person's connection with the entire Jewish people, with the Torah and with G‑d, it offers a glimmer of hope, helping the individual endure the days and the nights, the inner isolation.

The Chabad Rabbi will always be ready and prepared, lending a helping hand to the individual and his or her family, seeking out and focusing on the goodness within. The teachings of the Torah help a person become a healthy minded individual who knows that he or she has a vital part to play in the universe - even from the confines of a prison cell. This is also a preparation for eventual re-entry into society.

Visits to area correctional facilities serve as a vital link to the outside community for incarcerated Jewish inmates. Many of our brethren are using this very difficult and unfortunate experience as an opportunity to discover their roots, and turn over a new leaf, thanks to the encouragement and support of these visits. Chabad is regularly contacted by people across the country to come to the aid of a prisoner being transferred to the Western New York area.

If you know of a Jewish inmate in one of the area correctional facilities that needs assistance or guidance please contact us.
