Thank you! Together we did it!
Goal:  $103,450



→ CENTRALLY LOCATED, near Chinook Centre, and is within 5-25 minutes of residential homes

→ THE BUILDING IS 11,500 SQ. FT. plus 2000 sq. ft. of storage sitting on two acres of land

→ THE YOUTH CENTRE includes seven class/activity rooms, computer lab, and an outdoor →basketball court

→ TWO LARGE HALLS. One that that will serve as a Shul and JLI (Jewish Learning Institute) lecture hall, and one as a social hall for functions, CTeen, Calgary Yachad Hebrew School, Camp Gan Israel, Calgary Friendship Circle, holiday events and more!

How will we walk to the new Chabad House on Shabbos?

Chabad has now opened a Branch for Services only. We are committed to keep a Minyan in the Woodcreek area.


A. We have overnight Shabbos & Holiday accommodation including meals.

B. There are many community members living within 30-minute walking distance, as well as nearby hotels that will benefit tourists and visitors.

Minimum required upgrades to the building will enable us to make use of the facilities for community programs, which includes:

• The Shul, JLI (Jewish Learning Institute) Lecture Hall, Social Hall for functions, CTeen, Calgary Yachad Hebrew School, Camp Gan Israel, Holiday Events, programs for adults & children & More!

• Up to date security systems

• Washrooms with handicap access

• Initially one room will be designed to accommodate The Calgary Friendship Circle (Friends Helping Friends: Connecting Teenagers with children with special needs)

• A basic Kitchen to enable food prep for programs including Community Shabbos & Holiday Meals. We will start to invest in commercial equipment that will be incorporated in the ultimate desired kitchen

• Sleeping accommodation for Shabbos and Holidays

• Building Signage

• Improved fencing in the playground area for the safety of the children
