Location
The Chabad Niagara Jewish Welcome Centre is located in the heart of the Niagara Falls Tourist District. 6417 Main Street, Niagara Falls, Canada.

Our Shul is located on the second floor of the Centre, while our exquisite Shabbat Meals are held in the ballroom of the Four Points by Sheraton Fallsview Hotel.

 

Hotel Affiliation
For Shabbat, we strongly recommend accommodation at the Four Points by Sheraton hotel as it is the home of our exquisite Shabbat meals, it’s only a few seconds’ walk (directly across the street) from the Chabad Centre, the hotel has secured manual entrances, manual sinks in the bathrooms, and has installed Shabbat keys on the lower floors specifically to aid the Jewish visitors during their stay. Most recently, Chabad installed an Eiruv between the Hotel and the Chabad Centre. Just another reason why we recommend that visitors stay at the Four Points by Sheraton hotel.

The Four Points by Sheraton hotel is located at 6455 Fallsview Blvd, Niagara Falls – Canada. Please note that Chabad Niagara operates separately from the hotel, and therefore hotel reservations must be booked directly through the hotel – Chabad does NOT handle hotel reservations.

Please note: When booking your reservation with the Four Points by Sheraton, remember to indicate that you are ‘Jewish – Shabbat observant’ and require a ‘Cultural – Shabbat key’.

For more hotel information please see our hotel page

 

Shabbat Keys
Shabbat keys are issued by the hotel. When booking your reservation with the Four Points by Sheraton, remember to indicate that you are ‘Jewish – Shabbat observant’ and require a ‘Cultural – Shabbat key’. There are approximately 50 rooms in the Four Points by Sheraton hotel with a Shabbat key, so getting a room with a Shabbat key is not guaranteed. Booking earlier increases your chances of getting a room with a Shabbat key.
