Chabad House of Ann Arbor does not charge annual membership or any student programing. We believe in an open-door policy, where everyone is welcome regardless of affiliation, background or financial status. Yet, we still have bills to pay.

A crucial element of support for Chabad’s work comes from hard-working individuals who commit to a monthly contribution. These monthly donations add up and make a great difference in covering Chabad’s operational budget. As the Talmud says “Each and every penny adds up to a large amount”.

Any amount you give has a tremendous impact! This is simple math: Ten people giving $18 per month (about 59 cents daily) is $180 per month. Over twelve months that is $2160. Now if we had ten donors at $18 per month and ten donors at $36 per month and ten donors at $72 per month and ten donors at $108 per month and ten donors at $180 per month, that would mean 50 donors are contributing $49,680 annually! Add another 50 donors and it’s almost $100,000 annually! The exponential growth potential is amazing.

This is a great opportunity to give Tzedakah, give us the ability to continue all the wonderful work that we do, and join a group of wonderful individuals committed to the financial support and success of Chabad House of Ann Arbor!

Thank G-d, Chabad has grown, and our budget has grown. We are now runnning a Weekly Shabbat Student dinners, daily and Shabbat services, several weekly classes, Camp Gan israel, monthly programs for the Jewish Womens Circle and list goes on.

We pride ourselves in operating an extremely lean organization and stretching every dollar. But still, we do not receive any monetary support from the local or central Chabad Lubavitch Headquarters. We depend entirely on donors like you!


Pick a dollar amount in multiples of $18($18, $36, $54, $72, $108, $180, $1,800,000, etc.). Eighteen is the numeric value (gematria) of the word CHAI, meaning life in Hebrew.

At any time you wish, you can increase, decrease or cancel your pledge.

As a convenience, we recommned you choose our hassle-free monthly credit card billing to be automatically charged on the first of every month.
