Mission Statement:

We are dedicated to building Jewish life in Loudoun County. Join the movement to strengthen Jewish community, every day.

In the Beginning: 

From a small synagogue in Brooklyn in the winter of 1951, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, otherwise known as the "Rebbe" transformed a small Chassidic dynasty of 200 years into the largest Jewish outreach organization. Today, Chabad-Lubavitch has 3,500 centers across the globe. 

Chabad’s unprecedented global success is tied to the fact that it is non-judgmental, with an all are welcome style - making ancient, traditional and authentic Judaism accessible and meaningful, in a modern and fast-paced world.

Chabad Of Loudoun County’s Story: 

As Loudoun County grows at a fast-growing pace, it being the third-most populous county in the state of Virginia, Rabbi Chaim and Rebbetzin Yehudis Cohen moved to beautiful Loudoun founding Chabad of Loudoun County.

In September 2019 The Village Shul was established, motivated by a profound love for every Jew and spurred by boundless optimism. Chabad of Loudoun County is dedicated to building community everyday through a dazzling array of programs and services to serve the spiritual and physical needs of all Jews, from all walks of life, with unconditional love and acceptance. This is the passionate vision that gave birth to The Village Shul.

The Village Shul offers a unique experience to Torah, prayer, and Judaism.  Walking through The Village Shul - Torah, Prayer and Judaism become alive in a joyful, relatable, and uplifting way. Community and friendships are created at The Village Shul that last a lifetime. 

Chabad of Loudoun County hosts an amazing community and holiday events that are very well attended and attract many attendees.

Our programing for the youth and young families are very active through family friday night meals, holiday programs, and JUDA. Adult education is passionately enjoyed through the many classes, courses, and lectures that run throughout the year. Current activities include Shabbat and Holiday services, friday night meals, daily soulful learning and JUDA.

As exciting as all of this is, we envision and plan for an even brighter future. Our next phase will be buying land where we will be able to establish a center that will cater to all of the community's needs both spiritual and physical. 

Our future is bright and limited only by a lack of imagination. Let us all grow together!
