In 1988 the Lubavitcher Rebbe sent Rabbi David and Chanie Greene to Rochester with the goal of strengthening the Jewish life of visitors, patients and families who come to the world-famous Mayo Clinic, and to be the Chabad representatives in southern Minnesota. They established the Chabad-Lubavitch of Rochester Jewish Education & Hospitality Center as an oasis of Jewish hospitality and chassidic warmth in southern Minnesota.

In 2017 Rabbi Shloime and Chana Greene move to Southern Minnesota and establish the Southern Minnesota Center for Jewish Life a branch of Chabad-Lubavitch of Southern Minnesota

The Greene's have become known throughout the world for diligently living up to their motto, "For All Your Jewish Needs".
