In 1987, by the instructions of the  Lubavitcher Rebbe, Chabad established the first Chabad house in  the Far East in Hong Kong.

In the mid to late 90s as mainland china was opening its doors to the west, the need for permanent Jewish presence on the mainland became a necessity, and so in 1998 Chabad opened the first Jewish institution on mainland China since the early 1950s. In 2001 Chabad set shop in Beijing, Chinas Capital.

As Jewish people spread to more cities throughout the mainland, so did Chabad, and today Chabad has centers in; Hong Kong (2), Shanghai (3), Beijing, Guangzhou, Shenzhen (2), Yiwu, Chengdu, and Ningbo.

To date, Chabad is the main Jewish  Infrastructure  in China,  and as such holds a variety of institutions and programs, such as shuls, mikvas, preschools, kindergartens, Jewish schools and Hebrew schools, Koser restaurants and shops,  adult and youth torah classes, holiday programs and much more.
