The New Chabad Jewish Center In Chengdu

About Our Community

Building Dedication - $260,000

The Chabad Jewish Center was established in Chengdu in early 2012. For the past 7 years the Chabad House has been housed in rented spaces. We began in a small apartment, and then as the community grew, we grew as well into larger villas in different areas of the city. In seven years, we have moved 5 places! The time has come to build a permanent home for the Jewish community of Chengdu!
The new building will house a Mikveh, Jewish Preschool, Kosher Restaurant, Synagogue, Guest Suites, Social Halls and just about everything a Jewish Community Needs!
