Shalom!

Welcome to Clifton Park Chabad Jewish Center! Here at Chabad, you will find a wide array of programming designed to enhance Jewish life in southern Saratoga County. We strive to create an environment where every person is welcome, every individual Mitzvah is cherished, and where Judaism is an accessible reality to all Jews regardless of background, affiliation or age! Through Shabbat Dinners, Holiday events, Jewish Womens circle, Chabad Hebrew school and everything in between, we are cultivating a community together. We look forward to meeting you in person at a Shabbat dinner, Torah class or a casual coffee date.

Light candles today at 5:48 pm.

If you’ve ever moved in your life (and who hasn’t?), you know how traumatic it can be. Some of us have even had the “pleasure” of moving to a new country, with a foreign culture and a strange language. It’s hard. Really hard.

Yet, this week we read how Abraham and Sarah did it, traveling to the land of Canaan, because G-d told them to. Then, just as they arrived, famine forced them to relocate to Egypt.

I would posit that the reason they were so equanimous is because the little details like geography were irrelevant to them. They had a deep connection to G-d, who is everywhere.

Now, I don’t know that we can all attain that level (after all, most of us have never been spoken to by G-d), but surely we can take some of their faithful, joyous perspective and apply it to our own lives.

Shabbat Shalom!

Clifton Park Chabad

What a party!! Thanks to all who came out to celebrate with us on a school night (and those in spirit who we totally understand couldn’t come out)! We created pop-up jewish calendars, had some great sports get pie in the face at the trivia game, and decorated delicious cakes! Hebrew birth dates (and certificates), a new fruit, torah passages and Tzedakah are just a few of the ways we celebrate a birthday jewishly. ... See MoreSee Less

Clifton Park Chabad

Did you hear the joke about the people who made a Noah’s ark simulator and opened it to the public? They were flooded with reservations!

Seriously speaking, the logistics of running an operation the size of Noah’s ark boggle the mind. How did Noah have the courage to believe that he would be able to save himself (along with the world’s fauna) by way of a floating box?

The answer is simple. It wasn’t his own idea, but something G-d had told him to do. He was just following orders, putting one foot ahead of the other.

This is something we can learn from. When the floodwaters of the world seem to be rising, just keep on soldiering onward. As long as you are doing what you are supposed to, G-d will take care of the rest.

Shabbat Shalom!
