  Full Service Synagogue
A shul is more than just a synagogue. A shul which is the Yiddish word for a place of prayer and study, is a home for any Jew looking for a warm and spiritual place to grow. At Chabad, everybody's welcome. Come when you want. Leave when you want. Bring the whole gang. And while the kids are making new friends at their special "kid-friendly" service, treat your soul to something special. With a "come as you are" attitude, you'll feel right at home. No matter where in the Five Towns you live, work or study, if you are looking for a place to express your soul, this shul's for you.
  Daily Minyanim
The services are traditional, and are conducted in a joyous, casual atmosphere. Many of those who attend cannot read Hebrew, yet everyone feels at home. The prayer book is bi-lingual and various English readings are included in the service. Song and commentary add meaning and participation to the prayers.

Burial Society
King Solomon said, "There is a time for all under the heavens - a time to love, a time to journey, a time to plant, a time to reap, a time to rejoice and a time to mourn." The Rabbi and staff are always there especially in times of need. To offer comfort, guidance and bereavement support. assistance in preparation, officiating at the funeral, the Shiva service etc.

Mezuzot Checking
A Mezuzah is so much more than a piece of parchment rolled into a scroll. Since the Mezuzah acts as our own personal guardian, alert at all times, it’s important to ensure that it is always in top condition. We will check your Mezuzot at any given time to ensure that they are Kosher.

Kitchen Kashering
Keeping Kosher is one of the most fundamental aspects of our religion. Kashering is the process of transforming your kitchen into one that meets all the standards of Kashrut.

Tefillin Inspection
Wrapped around our arms in those square black boxes, it’s easy to forget how holy Tefillin are. Containing the name of Hashem, each time we wrap ourselves in those black straps we are forging a bond with our Creator. Like Mezuzot, Tefillin contain holy parchments that need to be checked from time to time to ensure they are fit for use. Drop your Tefillin off and we’ll check them thoroughly and return them to you good as new.

Hospital Visitation - Bikur Cholim at Mercy and St. Francis Hospitals
At Chabad we realize how frightening, overwhelming or simply lonesome being in the hospital can be, and that’s why we put such emphasis on visiting people in the hospital and bringing them a gift package with goodies, that show them we care.
Chabad of Five Towns and its volunteers have visited numerous hospitals and senior homes bringing joy to many patients. Most importantly the patient is given the message that they are not alone.

Retirement Home Visitations
Before and during each of the Holidays, or upon request, one of the Chabad Rabbis visits local retirement homes to bring joy and good memories from days gone by, to Jewish residents.

Crisis Counseling
We don’t anticipate it and we certainly don’t want it, but there are times when we’ll inevitably step back and say, “I need help”. In any kind of crisis, big or small, we are here to help. We will provide a listening ear and a shoulder to lean on when times get tough.
