Chabad of Guangzhou was established in 2003 by Chabad of Hong Kong to service the needs of a small group of Jewish residents of Guangzhou and the large number of Jewish business travellers passing through this busy city each year.
From its humble beginnings during the SARS outbreak the Chabad has grown substantially to accomodate the quickly-expanding local community as well as the growing number of visitors.
The JCC of Guangzhou, China is dedicated to providing a welcoming environment for all individuals and families looking for a non-judgmental, accepting and personalized Jewish experience. The JCC offers “Judaism with a Smile” and a home away from home for everyone who walks through its doors, residents and visitors alike. By offering a wide range of social, cultural and inspirational activities for adults, children and the whole family, as well as its famous hospitality and assistance in all aspects of Jewish life, the JCC is the bastion of the Jewish community in Guangzhou.
