Chabad Lubavitch Worldwide
Click here for website

This site contains lots of good source material on Jewish Learning, and a list of Chabad Houses Worldwide, where people can seek nonjudgmental help and advice.

Chabad-Lubavitch is a philosophy, a movement, and an organization. It is considered to be the most dynamic force in Jewish life today.

The word "Lubavitch" is the name of the town in White Russia where the movement was based for more than a century and appropriately means the "City of brotherly love."

The word "Chabad" is a Hebrew acronym for the three intellectual faculties of: chachmah-wisdom, binah-comprehension and da'at-knowledge. The movement's system of Jewish religious philosophy, the deepest dimension of G-d's Torah, teaches understanding and recognition of the Creator, the role and purpose of Creation, and the importance and unique mission of each Creature. This philosophy guides a person to refine and govern his and her every act and feeling through wisdom, comprehension and knowledge.

The name Lubavitch conveys the essence of the responsibility and love engendered by the Chabad philosophy toward every single Jew.

Jewish East End Celebration Society (JEECS)
Click Here for website

The Jewish East End Celebration Society has been established to identify, document and where possible preserve this heritage for future generations both of Jews and immigrant communities that have arrived in the area today. The Society will not romanticise nor glorify the conditions that faced Jewish refugees at the turn of the twentieth century as the settled in London ’s East End, to escape pogroms and poverty in Eastern Europe. The new Society will rather celebrate the birthplace of the community that burgeoned there, was educated in its schools, streets, libraries and art galleries and whose members have gone on to become some of the most famous, successful and generous British citizens. The cradle of Jewish life in Britain deserves to be celebrated.
