Chabad of Malibu is one of California’s most unique and unconventional Jewish Centers. Chabad is a popular center for Jews of all backgrounds who want to learn more about their Jewish roots. Located across from the Malibu Pier, overlooking the gorgeous Pacific Ocean, Chabad offers a wide variety of educational, spiritual, social and recreational opportunities. Traditional Jewish values are brought to life in a joyous, non-judgmental atmosphere.

Chabad serves all segments of the Jewish community. Everyone is welcome regardless of their personal level of religious observance. The philosophy is in keeping with the Chabad-Lubavitch approach of joy, scholarship and unconditional acceptance and love for every Jew.

Chabad is under the spiritual guidance of Rabbi Levi Cunin, a warm, caring and energetic individual, who formed the congregation in 1994. The rabbi's approach is that Torah must be presented and experienced in relevant context and made available to each individual on their own level. Rabbi Cunin and his wife Sarah are emissaries of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson of righteous memory.

The services are traditional, and are conducted in a joyous, casual atmosphere. Children are included, encouraged to participate, and can either join the adults in the main Shul or attend our Jr. Congregation. Many of those who attend cannot read Hebrew, yet everyone feels at home. The prayer book is bi-lingual and various English readings are included in the service. Song and commentary add meaning and participation to the prayers.

An important part of our community is the weekly Kiddush Luncheon that follows the Shabbat morning services, where friendships are created and nurtured and we celebrate each other's happy occasions and anniversaries.

The Jr. Congregation and Hebrew School, under the talented leadership of Rabbi Nuchie Schapiro, translates the Chabad warmth and spirit to the youngsters. The children actually look forward to attending Hebrew School, where they are taught, in addition to Hebrew reading and writing, the meaning of our rich Heritage and the joys if being Jewish. Outings, contests and celebrations add an exciting dimension to the program. The Hebrew School provides a full Bar/Bat Mitzvah program as well.

Please allow yourself the opportunity to visit and participate in our vibrant congregation. By becoming a member at Chabad of Malibu you will acquire lifelong friendships, an opportunity for spiritual growth, and most importantly a chance to be a part of your Jewish community. Please feel free to visit us for services or any other program, or just stop in to say hello.
