Due to COVID-19, we do not necessarily have services every week. Please contact the Chabad Jewish Center to check if we are holding services and, if yes, where services will be held.

Unless otherwise noted on our website, Shabbat Services are sometimes held at the home of Rabbi & Mrs. Lifshitz, 3510 N North St, Boise, ID 83703, which is NOT in walking distance to the Chabad Jewish Center. Please contact us to verify where Shabbat services will be held on a given week.


Shacharit/Musaf services are held weekly on Shabbat mornings at 10:00 AM, followed by a community kiddush luncheon (suspended for covid-19). We do not always get a minyan, but with guests in town there is a stronger likelihood.

There is no eruv in the greater Boise area.


Unfortunately, there is no mikvah in Boise. The closest mikvah is in Salt Lake City, Utah (app. 350 miles from Boise).

Efforts are underway to raise funds to construct a mikvah. To contribute to our Mikvah fund and find out more about this project please click here. Thank you.
