The Lubavitch Jewish Center of Alaska was established in 1991 with the
arrival of Rabbi Yossi and Esty Greenberg in Anchorage as emissaries of
the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, O.B.M. with the
goal of fanning the flame of Judaism in the “Last Frontier”. Rabbi
Greenberg serves as the Rabbi of Congregation Shomrei Ohr, the only
Orthodox congregation in the state of Alaska. Today, after nine years,
the Lubavitch Center has expanded to three Anchorage locations and is an
established influence in the Jewish community through its synagogue,
pre-school and kindergarten, library, day camps, adult education
courses, and holiday functions.
The Lubavitch Center/Congregation Shomrei Ohr is located
in Midtown Anchorage at 1210 East 26th Avenue off the corners
of LaTouche and Northern Lights. The Gan Yeladim Preschool is located at
3327 Fairbanks St. The library, and Judaica Gift Shop are located at 650
W. International Airport Rd. Suite 208.
the Synagogue has a Minyan every Shabbat morning at 10:00am. On Friday
nights, there are services (without a Minyan). Service time varies each
week corresponding to the earliest Shabbat lighting (Plug HaMincha).
Sun Candle Lighting Times:
Due to the Midnight Sun in Alaska, candle lighting times can be quite
late. Please check the exact candle lighting times for the dates of your
visit in Alaska.
Various Alaskan Jewish publications are available at the Center. Several
