With the growth and expansion of Jewish businesses and the number of Jewish families living and working in Nigeria, Chabad Of Central Africa decided to send a young couple, Rabbi Israel and Haya Uzan, to serve as full times emissaries in Nigeria and to help build a Jewish Community Center and Jewish communal life. Chabad of Nigeria nourishes a community that is respectful and sensitive to diversity and hosts Jewish services and events, Sabbath and Holiday services, educational programs for the young and old alike, and also provides multi-lingual services and resources to Jews businesses and individuals working in Nigeria. Our programs are designed to strengthen Jewish identity and understanding of Jewish culture to the wider community.


The Chabad Jewish Community Center of Nigeria is located in Abuja which has the largest Jewish presence in Nigeria, but also provides for the spiritual welfare of the smaller Jewish communities of Lagos, Ibadan, Benin City, Kashimbila...   Chabad JCC of Nigeria is strategically located in close proximity to major Jewish companies and near the International School, enabling us to establish a strong presence at the Institutions and share our rich heritage with the entire community.          
Rabbi Israel and Haya Uzan have now three children that are helping them in their mission.
