Letter from the Directors

Chabad of S. Maarten is dedicated to the enhancement of the spiritual, physical, and material welfare of Jewish residents, locally and on surrounding islands, as well as tourists, guests, and visitors from around the world. Chabad serves as a welcoming, embracing beacon of light, illuminating the path toward meaningful, joyful Jewish living and offering assistance in every cycle of Jewish life.

In 2009, Chabad in S. Maarten started off in a small rented apartment and with a dream for a permanent home. That dream is slowly becoming a reality as the construction of a new, state-of-the-art Chabad House is underway. Our plans include a large synagogue, a kosher kitchen, a mikvah, classrooms and activity rooms, a social hall, guestrooms, offices, and a rooftop terrace for weddings and bar/bat mitzvot, overlooking the ocean.  A grand place of our own where spiritual, social and physical comfort will be combined under one roof!

Now it’s your turn! We invite you To INVEST in the future, ensuring a vibrant, flourishing Jewish presence in S. Maarten. Become a partner with us, and together let’s make a difference today for a brighter and better tomorrow.  On an island that has many ancient, historic Jewish landmarks, the new Chabad House will be a center for Jewish history alive! 

Your donation will bring the construction of Chabad’s new home one step closer to completion.  In the merit of your generosity, may you be blessed with good health, prosperity, and success in abundant measure.

Rabbi Moishe and Sara Chanowitz
