With over 3,500 Chabad Centers in 100 countries around the world, Chabad.org has launched a new app – called Chabad Nearby – which will connect users to a nearby Chabad House with just a swipe.
In time for summer travel season, ‘Chabad Nearby’ app helps users find and connect with their nearest Chabad House.
There are more than 3,500 Chabad-Lubavitch institutions in 100 countries around the world, and it just became easier than ever to find them—no matter if you’re backpacking in Peru, touring Italy or out for lunch in Los Angeles.
Chabad.org’s newest app, “Chabad Nearby,” lets users locate the nearest Chabad center with the tap of a finger.
“Chabad Nearby” uses Chabad.org’s directory to pinpoint Chabad centers by distance and location, as well as show how to find upcoming classes, events and services anywhere in the world. After you’ve found what you’re looking for, you can contact the center directly through the app (and even make a donation).
“This app brings awareness to the true breadth and depth of Chabad around the world,” says Rabbi Dov Dukes, who leads our app development team. “Now, Jewish experiences can be found even more easily, no matter where you are in the world.”
Additional features include the ability to save centers for easy access, view a list of services offered at each center, access one-click directions, and click to call. The app also provides the local time at each center (so you don’t accidentally call at 2 a.m.).
The Chabad.org family of apps is made possible by the generous partnership of Dovidand Malkie Smetana, Alan and Lori Zekelman, the Meromim Fund, and Moris and Lillian Tabacinic.
