One Mitzvah at a Time

Uplifting Body and Soul

For more than three decades, the Magen Israel Center has been a steadfast provider of spiritual education to the Iranian Jewish community in greater New York. From our humble beginnings as a small summer camp to our current multi-faceted organization, our commitment to the individual has remained at the heart of Magen Israel's mission. We strive to support every Jewish community member in their journey of Avodat Hashem, one meaningful mitzvah at a time.

Join us for a range of inspiring gatherings and events that unite individuals who share a common goal of making a positive impact

"Kindle the spark in others so that each person becomes a flame that rises on its own"

In 1988, under the guidance of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Yitzchok and Tamar Chayempour embarked on a mission to aid the thousands of Persian Jewish immigrants escaping the Iranian revolution for the United States. They founded Magen Israel, an institution dedicated to meeting the spiritual needs of the newly arrived refugees with warmth and care. After 30+ years of unwavering commitment, Magen Israel stands as a beacon of warmth and love, extending its caring embrace to each and every individual it serves.
