Ningbo Jewish Center


About us


In 2013, inspired by the Lubavitcher Rebbe's vision to reach every single Jewish person, Rabbi Kuty and Rochel Kalmenson moved their young family to Shanghai and joined Rabbi Shalom and Dina Greenberg, at the Shanghai Jewish Center. The primary focus of their work at the Shanghai Jewish Center was to reach out to the small Jewish communities in the entire region.

In 2016, the need to open a permanent Jewish Center in the city of Ningbo was recognized, to serve the needs of the growing local community, as well as the hundreds of Jewish business people passing through every year. With the help and blessings of Chabad of China, led by Rabbi Mordechai and Goldy Avtzon, the Ningbo Jewish Center was established.

The Ningbo Jewish Center operates in the true Chabad spirit. Every Jew is welcomed with open arms in an open and non-judgmental environment, regardless of his or her level of Jewish affiliation, observance or knowledge.

Come join us for a Shabbat meal, stop by for a Torah Class, shop at our Kosher Shop, or just pop in to say hello.
