Chabad House Synagogue
Join us for warm and welcoming Shabbat services at Chabad of Jamaica! User-friendly, explanatory services open to all, no matter one’s background or affiliation.
We established the first Chabad House in Jamaica with a Jewish Welcome Center to service the spiritual and physical needs of the Jewish visitors to the Island as well as the local Jewish population.
Chabad of Jamaica’s doors are open to every Jew, regardless of background or affiliation. It’s a place where questions are embraced and Judaism is observed meaningfully and joyfully.
Shabbat morning services:

Our goal: is to strengthen Jewish awareness and pride for the Jewish residence, and the thousands of visitors to Jamaica, regardless of background or affiliation. To spread acts of goodness and kindness to all humanity!

Rabbi Yaakov Raskin was born and raised in Montreal, Canada as one of seven siblings. He is a grandchild of the Chabad emissaries to Casablanca, Morocco and a child to Chabad emissaries of Cote Saint Luc in Montreal. As a teenager and later as an adult, he found his calling as a Rabbinical student traveling across the United States, France, Canada, England, and the Caribbean Islands, spreading the wellsprings of Judaism near and far.
Now, together with his wife Mushkee, they seek to permanently answer their true calling: To celebrate Judaism and the warmth of our great heritage together with the Jamaica community and the many tourists, no matter ones previous background or affiliation.
Currently, there is no mikvah in Jamaica. However, should you need to use the mikvah during your stay please call Mrs. Mushkee Raskin at 876-596-2034.
