We’re thrilled to announce the launch of our ‘Buy a Chai Brick’ campaign!

At OTC, we believe in the strength and comfort of a unified community that is inclusive and supportive to all of Ottawa’s Jewish community… regardless of affiliation, education, background, or economic means.

The Chai Brick gift is meant to be an easy, affordable for all, and meaningful contribution that will help us complete the journey of constructing a new home for Chabad in Ottawa. Have your name listed on the Chai Brick donor wall inside our new home. You will also receive your own commemorative brick to proudly display in your home!

The new OTC home, located adjacent our existing facility on Lamplighters Drive, will provide for the spiritual and community needs of Ottawa’s Jewish population for decades to come. Along with the multi-purpose gathering hall to accommodate prayer services and functions of different sizes, our new home will also provide space and resources for adult education classes, our Hebrew school program, a Judaic library, life-cycle event preparations and celebrations, and community gatherings (a kosher kitchen will be on-site).


Benefits for You

At OTC we aim to build a strong sense of community for Ottawa’s Jewish families that is compatible with busy, modern living. Our approach of education and inclusiveness has helped hundreds of unaffiliated Jews and young Jewish families across the city discover the excitement of Judaism and the power of its traditions allowing them to reconnect with their spiritual identity. By participating in the Buy a Chai Brick program, you can play an important role in ensuring a bright Jewish future in Ottawa! Buy a Chai Brick and help us reach this important milestone, the construction our new home, which will allow us to bring our spiritual and uplifting approach to an ever-expanding circle of participants who will experience the joy of Jewish life at OTC.

How Can I Contribute?

Chai Bricks were designed to be affordable and meet the budget of young (and well-seasoned) Jewish families. The cost of dedicating a brick is $1,800 – which can be contributed in one lump sum, or by spreading the gift out: $100/month for 18 months or $50/month for 36 months!

Only 100 Chai Bricks are available, be sure to reserve yours today!
