Nice to read about this place, but where is it? Crown Heights is a big place. Please post address so I can visit one Shabbos and see it for myself.

the Soul House is a beautiful place but if you don’t already know where it is… probably not for your age demographic. The soul house is for young adults if crown heights ages 20+ – 36

We have our friends. Some of us have family. As a single person figuring out life in Crown Heights, it’s hard to find “community” And that’s exactly what Soul House gives us! It’s a safe place to come and learn and meet people. It’s a Shul and a social center. We celebrate Yomim Tovim and get inspiration and connection. We have a full Shabbos program there! Rabbi Eli and Myriam are so incredible and caring and deep!! You learn so much from their teachings and having farbrengens/conversations with them and even just from being in their presence! They’ve opened up… Read more »

This is the best shul in CH. As someone who became frum and inspired by the Chabad House i grew up in, i always felt like there was a certain spark missing in a lot of shuls, yeshivas, and communities in the frum community. The Soul House has that spark, the Englesons make very beautiful, thought out, and meaningful events. This is the Chabad that i fell in love with as a kid.

the most beautiful shul, an open home for everyone ❤️

Inspiring

This shul has truly become a home and welcoming base for my young adult child. I live out of town and came one week to see what it was all about and was so inspired by the deep Chassidishe, the variety of people, the wonderful atmosphere. If I lived in crown heights this would definitely be my shul!

The Englesons have literally created the most vibrant chabad house in Crown Heights.
Filling such a need for those that have experienced the warmth and excitement for Yiddishkeit that you feel around the world when you visit a chabad house.
Listening to the Maamer shiur shabbas morning with Rabbi Engleson is an absolute highlight.
I encourage everyone to pop in and feel alive with Torah & Chasidus.
Such a worthy cause, they are saving neshamos.

This shul has the best events for all the holidays and throughout the week. Filled with simcha, good food, and meaning. Such a warm and welcoming environment. Love the rabbi’s shiurim.
