Founding Principles

Chabad of the South Shore is founded on the principle that, while Jews embrace many levels of observance in their personal lives, there should be a place for all Jews no labels, no affiliations, to develop a sense of community and enhance the experience of being Jewish. Based in Hingham, MA, we cater to individuals and families from all backgrounds in over 20 towns throughout the wider South Shore, from Quincy through Plymouth. We offer Jewish educational programs for all ages in an accepting and innovative setting where everyone who walks through our doors feels welcome.  There's palpable warmth that melts away any embarrassment for those unfamiliar with, or new to, Jewish life. Come feel for yourself the friendly atmosphere that makes our programs such a delightful experience.

Growth. Connection.  

Two little words that symbolize what we stand for. Two big words that tell you what's so special about us.

Many people come to study or pray here from all sorts of backgrounds, many different religious affiliations, and all levels of Judaic observance. But there is one thing they have in common: a connection is made and a friendship has been formed. Some might seek to expand their Jewish horizons, increase their knowledge in areas of Judaism or for some, to grow in Jewish observance. But they all have found acceptance and leave with a lifted spirit. 

Our Rabbi

Warmly, gently, humorously, humbly, but persistently, Rabbi Lezell, urges everyone onward and upward, based on the teachings of Chassidism and the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneersohn, that every Jew is precious and important because he is a Jew, and endowed with a G‑dly soul.

Come visit us and see for yourself. Be amazed at what you can be!
