Rabbi Mendel and Basya Goldman



Chabad of Norman is dedicated to enriching Jewish life in Norman. We are committed to providing for the material and spiritual needs of every Jew in Norman, on campus, and in the community. We aim to promote Jewish pride and celebration and to establish a warm and comfortable environment where everyone is welcome.


Chabad of Norman is guided and inspired by the teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of blessed memory, who transformed Chabad into a global Jewish force and whose leadership, vision, and love are a beacon of light for all humanity.



Chabad is an international Jewish organization with centers in all fifty states and one hundred and ten countries worldwide. With the growing number of communities it serves, Chabad is the largest Jewish infrastructure globally. Chabad of Norman is an affiliate of the Chabad Jewish Center of Greater Oklahoma City, directed by Rabbi Ovadia & Nechoma Goldman.


Chabad of Norman is one of over 850 on-site Chabad on Campus centers around the world. We offer the anchor and embrace of 'family' for all Jewish students. Consider our address one you can turn to for any reason at all.


We are founded on the principle that, while Jews may embrace many levels of observance in their personal lives, there should be a place for all Jews--regardless of background, knowledge, or affiliation--to develop a sense of community and enhance the experience of being Jewish. We believe that every human being is created in G-d's image and is an integral part of the tapestry of G‑d's creation. With our unique contributions, each of us is here to create a better world and enhance the lives of others.


Chabad of Norman is a not-for-profit organization funded exclusively by generous friends and donors. Don't hesitate to contact us for sponsorship and partnership opportunities.
