About Us 

Thirty four years ago Shaloh House Chabad in Stoughton set a goal to make a difference in the lives of fellow Jews, enriching their lives with the warmth and spirit of Juadism. 

In 1987, Rabbi Mendel & Chana Gurkow founded the Shaloh House Preschool & Kindergarten in order to build a professional quality Jewish program for families with children, who otherwise would not be enriched by Judaism. Today, the Shaloh House Preschool & Kindergarten has reached that goal. It has earned a reputation of excellence in education, accredited by the OCCS and by the NAEYC, being a family friendly environment, where every child and every person counts. 

They also founded the Shaloh House Hebrew School for children from families who are unaffiliated with any temple or educational institution. The program was designed to not only provide a solid Jewish education, but also to instill the pride and spirit of Judaism in the hearts of children from age 5 through Bar-Mitzvah. Today the Shaloh House Hebrew School has become a symbol of quality Jewish education in the South Shore area. 

They also founded the Shaloh House Synagogue to provide religious services on Shabbat and Jewish Holidays, to help Jewish families and individuals from a wide geographical area read Hebrew and appreciate the significance of prayer. Today the Shaloh House Synagogue has become a place where people of all levels of observance find a place to belong and comfortably share in the warm atmosphere of Judaism.  

With the addition of Holiday programming, adult educational courses and pastoral services, Shaloh House Chabad is a full family service organization, a place where a Jewish family can depend on all for their family needs.
