History

The building originally served as a medical clinic (and performed illegal abortions and was therefore closed down by officials), [1] and was later purchased, in 1940, by Agudas Chasidei Chabad and adapted for the needs of Rabbi Yosef Yitzchok Schneersohn. Rabbi Schneersohn was paralyzed and required a wheelchair when he arrived in the United States in 1940. A building with an elevator needed to be purchased for his use as both a home and as a synagogue, despite its being a great luxury at the time. The synagogue was given the name "Congregation Lubavitch". Crown Heights was chosen as the air was felt to be better for the Rebbe's ailing health.

From its inception the synagogue has served three parallel purposes. It is a place of daily prayer services, a study hall for advanced students, and also an assembly hall for Chabad's gatherings known as Farbrengens, where the Lubavitcher Rebbe or elder Chassidim would talk with Chassidim and other visitors about Chassidic and Torah philosophy and practice.


As the Lubavitch movement grew in the United States, the original small synagogue was soon too small to house the growing number of worshipers and students who regularly came to pray and study there. The synagogue was expanded in several stages, the first annex being added in 1960 with subsequent expansions taking place in the late 1960's and again in the mid 1970's at which point the synagogue reached approximately its current size. The original synagogue remains as a small study hall used by rabbinical students during the week. In 1988, Rabbi Schneerson laid the cornerstone for a larger renovation project, though he did not live to see its completion. 1988 (MCMLXXXVIII) was a leap year starting on Friday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


Currently, the original building is part of a larger block maintained by the Agudas Chasidei Chabad. This block includes the larger synagogue, a Mikvah, a Kollel, and the community's library. It also houses parts of the secretariat of the Lubavitch Movement, and other related offices. Agudas Chasidei Chabad is the umbrella organization for the Chabad-Lubavitch movement. ...

Besides being a synagogue, the site is considered to be especially holy, as it served as the home and offices of the last 2 Lubavitch leaders and is visited by thousands of people from around the world every year. While the building is recognized as an Orthodox Jewish synagogue, it is open to all people, with a men's section on the ground floor, and a women's section on the floor above it. On the Sabbath and holidays, smaller prayer groups can be found congregating throughout the building, including the lobby and office used by the Rebbe within the original 770 building. Shabbat (שבת shabbāt, rest Hebrew, or Shabbos in Ashkenazic pronunciation), is the weekly day of rest in Judaism. ... Rebbe which means master, teacher, or mentor is a Yiddish word derived from the identical Hebrew word רבי. It mostly refers to the leader of a Hasidic Jewish movement. ...


The synagogue's official name is "Congregation Lubavitch of Agudas Chasidei Chabad" although it goes by several other names throughout the worldwide Chabad community, including: Beis Moshiach ("Messiah's House") - the numerical value of 770 - and Beis Rabeinu Sheb'bovel ("Our Rebbe's House in Babylon"). This article does not cite any references or sources. ... Babylonian captivity also refers to the permanence of the Avignon Papacy. ...

" Several artists have also created Tzedakah boxes and Mezuzah cases in the building's likeness. In addition, Joseph Zakon Wineries in New York City makes a wine called "Seven-seventy".
