Founding Principles

CPY 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. We develop a sense of community and enhance the experience of being Jewish. We have successfully catered to hundreds of families from all backgrounds, offering Jewish educational programming in an accepting and innovative setting where all feel welcome.  The goal is to create a positive Jewish experience for everyone as they strengthen their ties to the Jewish community.  

Chabad Persian Youth is a place where every Jewish person is welcome - regardless of affiliation or level of knowledge. Our sole purpose is to create a warm welcoming environment to explore and experience our heritage in a non-judgmental and inviting atmosphere. 

 

About Chabad Persian Youth Center

CPY is a Synagogue and Community center reaching out to the entire Jewish Community. Since it's opening in 1995 it has touched and influenced thousands of lives. Whether they are families from Israel who are unaffiliated with a Synagogue, immigrants from Iran who never learned to read Hebrew prayers, or Americans who are seeking spiritual meaning, all of them have found a welcome home and community here.

Due to our rapid growth, in 2012 we moved into our newly built center located on the corner of Dedham Street and Rachel Road.

Aside from regular services, CPY hold's family holiday celebrations and events where families can celebrate together in a comfortable social environment. Families that may not have a strong enough commitment to have membership somewhere, choose Chabad to celebrate their Bar Mitzvah. We have a monthly youth program for Public School Students where they volunteer to give to the community.
