Chabad House (small)


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 and Sarah Cunin. They came to Malibu in 1994 with the approach that Judaism 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.

Chabad offers “Judaism with a Smile,” and a home away from home for everyone who walks through its doors.

More about Chabad

At Chabad of Malibu great emphasis is put on the mystical experience behind the "rituals and traditions" of Judaism. Our goal is to penetrate beyond the world that appears to our physical senses and to be absorbed in a higher, spiritual realm. The spiritual realm is regarded as true and real. The awareness and experience of it is priceless.

The word “Chabad” is a Hebrew acronym for the three intellectual faculties of chochmah—wisdom, binah—comprehension and da’at—knowledge.

The above three stages lay at the core of Chabad’s philosophy. The uniqueness of the human condition is in the possibility to grow through knowledge. Each of us arrives in this world with unique circumstances, yet we are united by for we have the ability to grow internally and learn from each other.

By accepting that our current knowledge is limited, we become open to the possibility that there is knowledge positioned higher than the prism through which we currently experience life. To live is to grow. We grow through the constant renewal of our conception, the ensuing development, and most importantly, the application of our new realization to our daily lives.
