Rabbi and Mrs. Shmuel Naparstek established a Chabad branch in Jackson during the summer of 2016. Initially small, it quickly grew to offer numerous programs and services to cater to the sizable unaffiliated Jewish population in Jackson.

R' Shmuel mentions that more than 300 families participate in the various Chabad of Jackson activities, such as joining a Torah Class or the Tefillin Club, attending Shabbos meals, or enrolling their children in the Hebrew School. R' Shmuel shares his journey to Jackson and shares his message that every Yid has the ability to make an impact.
