WELCOME TO OUR SHUL!
Chabad of Plano / Collin County has become a popular center for Jews of all backgrounds who want to learn more about their Jewish roots. Located in the heart of Plano, TX, Chabad offers a wide variety of educational and spiritual opportunities, including Torah classes and lectures, Shabbaton dinners, and an array of family and social activities. Traditional Jewish values are brought to life in a joyous, non-judgmental atmosphere.
Chabad serves all segments of the Jewish community. Everyone is welcome regardless of their personal level of religious observance. The philosophy is in keeping with the Chabad-Lubavitch approach of joy, scholarship and unconditional acceptance and love for every Jew.
Chabad of Plano is under the spiritual guidance of Rabbi Menachem M. Block, a warm, caring and energetic individual, who formed the congregation in 1992. The Rabbi's approach is that Torah must be presented and experienced in a modern, relevant context and made available to enable each individual to grow in their observance of Torah and Mitzvot one step at a time. Rabbi Block and his wife Rivkah are emissaries of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson.
The services are traditional, and are conducted in a joyous, casual atmosphere. Children are included and most welcome. Many of those who attend cannot read Hebrew, yet everyone feels at home. The prayer book is bi-lingual and various English readings are included in the service. Song and commentary add meaning and participation to the prayers.
An important part of our community is the weekly Kiddush Luncheon that follows the Shabbat morning services, where friendships are created and nurtured and we celebrate each other's happy occasions and anniversaries.
Rabbi Horowitz heads up our youth and teen programs and is the mentor to our Bar Mitzvah boys. He also teaches adults, Chumash, Talmud and Chassidus classes.
The Chabad has a vibrant Jewish Woman's Circle where ladies meet to learn and share friendships. The woman's programming as well as our most beautiful mikvah is directed by Rivkie Block.
The Hebrew School Program, under the talented leadership of Esther Horowitz, translates the Chabad warmth and spirit to the youngsters. The children actually look forward to attending Hebrew School, where they are taught, in addition to Hebrew reading and writing, the meaning of our rich Heritage and the joys if being Jewish. Outings, contests and celebrations add an exciting dimension to the program. The Shul provides a full Bar/Bat Mitzvah program.
