Community Links

New Orleans has a vibrant Jewish community!
Our community features an Eruv, nine synagogues, two Jewish Community Centers, two Jewish day schools, and a mikveh. A kosher deli and market, an upscale Kosher Moroccan restaurant, and New Orleans favorite Café Du Monde are also great gathering places.
In addition to the services provided by our local Jewish Family Services, our congregation has an active Chessed Committee committed to caring for our elderly, our sick, our new mothers, our bereaved members, as well as for welcoming visitors and newcomers.
Please note that, since the loss of our synagogue building in Katrina, daily minyanim have been held at Chabad. Weekday Shacharit is at 7AM at the uptown Chabad House (8AM on Sundays) and Mincha/Maariv is approximately 15 minutes before sunset at the Metairie Chabad Center, 4141 West Esplanade Ave. Additionally, information for the local mikvah is available here. There is a separate men's mikvah as well.
