On weekdays, Shacharis is at 8:00 AM (sunday at 9:00). Mincha/Arvit is at 8:00 PM.
The security personnel at the entrance of the synagogue require registration of your passport. Please come during the week with your passport to register it. The email is: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you cannot come before Shabbos please send me a pic via whatsapp and I will forward it to them as we don't carry on Shabbat in Madrid since there is no Eruv.
We would be delighted to host you for the Shabbat meals! Both Friday night and Shabbat lunch meals take place in the Bet Chabad right after services - Friday night at 9:00 PM, Shabbat lunch at 1:00 PM. We always have a nice crowd. You don't want to miss the lively Shabbat spirit and excellent food right in the heart of Madrid!
You can place your reservations for both Friday night and/or Shabbat lunch meals here. Please specify the date of the Shabbos you will join us. Please to not hesitate to contact me via whatsapp +34658140969 with any inquiries.
Please note: some hotels have electronic card keys and/or sensors which automatically turn on lights. Please check with your Rabbi what to do in such a case.
You can also look for a place via Airbnb or Booking com - our neighborhood is called "Chueca"
The habad of Madrid is super welcoming! I felt at home there.
¡Zalman y su familia nos cuidaron muy bien! Nos lo pasamos muy bien, la comida y el ambiente eran geniales.
Étudiant à Madrid, j'ai passé tous les chabaths de l'année au Beth Chabad de Madrid. C'était top!
