Jewish inmates are not generally taken care of by the Jewish community and sometimes even by their own families.

Chabad Outreach Jewish Inmate Services, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, provides assistance in conducting inmate religious services, counseling inmates and their families during and after incarceration, prayer books, proper Jewish Bibles, Passover and other Jewish Holiday foods and supplies to various Texas Department Criminal Justice units, books and classes on Jewish study and history, and Jewish Reference Libraries in many TDCJ facilities. We provide services to additional lockdown facilities including Federal, County, and INS Prisons.

Our yearly budget is $108,000.
