Eight years ago, Rabbi Levi And Fraidy Brook established the Chabad of Waukesha- Brookfield Jewish Center, to promote and strengthen Jewish awareness, pride and observance by providing educational, cultural and social activities to the Greater Waukesha community. After operating out of a beautiful historic home for 8 years; due to Chabad’s growth, the time has arrived for a new expanded permanent facility.

Our new location will be at 1275 Barker Rd, at the edge of Brookfield, and right off the freeway, making it accessible from everywhere in Waukesha county. Even as we grow, we will preserve the warm and intimate atmosphere that has attracted so many families and individuals to Chabad of Waukesha.

OUR MISSION in general is to create a welcoming and non-judgmental environment where every Jew is welcome, regardless of background, affiliation or financial means – where everyone feels at home, from the inexperienced in ritual and practice to the most learned. A place which promotes Jewish continuity, education where children play and learn and develop their Jewish identities, where our elders share their wisdom, where parents learn to transmit the joy and beauty of Judaism to the next generation. A place which provides spiritual, emotional and material assistance to all.

Although Chabad of Waukesha - Brookfield is affiliated with the worldwide Chabad-Lubavitch network, and is under the Lubavitch of Wisconsin umbrella, we are responsible for raising 100% of our budget locally. All funds raised stay entirely within local Chabad community and are used exclusively for our programs and activities, and all funds raised for building campaign are used exclusively for the building.
