About The Chassidic Discovery Welcome Center

The Chassidic Discovery Welcome Center is a nonprofit, cultural educational institution dedicated to sharing the ideals of Chassidic Life with a universal audience.

Our Mission is to Educate, Inspire, and Familiarize, all people, with cultural warmth and understanding.

The tours began when Rabbi Beryl Epstein, a Tennessee native who grew up in a not-so-observant Jewish household, worked as campus Rabbi at Pratt Institute in 1982, and occasionally, together with his wife Dena, led a tour of Crown Heights for visitors to the neighborhood.
