Appointment with the Rabbi 

We look forward to seeing you at our classes, but if they conflict with your schedule, you can make an appointment with our Rabbi by calling 310-456-6588 or email [email protected]

These meeting are not specifically reserved for academic study, rather anything you would like to discuss with the rabbi. Please understand that the rabbi is very busy and may not be able to meet with you right away, but the rabbi, or someone from our office, will get back to you with an appointment.  

Aside from our rabbi’s extensive history of marriage counseling, conflict resolution, and spiritual development through the timeless teaching of the Kabbalah, these meetings will be “out of the box.”

Born and raised in Westwood California, Rabbi Levi Cunin was educated in the United States, Israel, Russia and Australia. In 1994, Rabbi Levi and his wife, Rebbitzen Sarah Cunin, were sent to Malibu as emissaries by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson. Since then, Rabbi Levi has been the rabbi, spiritual mentor and teacher at Chabad of Malibu. Rabbi Levi draws his teachings from the 4,000-year-old esoteric and encrypted texts of the Kabbalah that provides a guide to the mysteries of cosmic and human consciousness, which is the source for much of the "new age" wisdom we are familiar with today. Rabbi Levi’s progressive and contemporary philosophies facilitate growth of one's inner spirit; and are universal and open to people of all backgrounds and spiritual orientations.

Rabbi Levi appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and publishes a popular weekly article in the Malibu Patch entitled: Over The Rainbow.

In 1998, with the goal of publishing quality Jewish literature, Rabbi Levi established Thirty Seven Books, a publishing house that would go on to publish several revolutionary works of Kabbalah translated into English with commentary. The books are presented with interpolated explanations that clarify the original text’s terse prose and a commentary that shows how these sometimes abstruse teachings can be applied to everyday life.

Rabbi Levi was one of the project coordinators for the Kehot Chumash. An innovative Chumash (Torah), featuring "Chasidic Insights" and "Inner Dimensions." Chronological charts, topic titles, illustrations, diagrams and maps. Each Parsha (Torah portion) is prefaced by an overview, a study of its name, and its relevance to the respective text. Fully vocalized Hebrew text of Rashi`s classical commentary, the translation weaves Rashi`s work into the translation of the Torah text, forming a clear, smooth and easy reading body; accessible even to the beginner and informative to all.

Rabbi Levi received his rabbinic ordination from the Chabad Central Yeshiva Tomchei Temimim in New York, and has studied under great Chassidic masters, his foremost mentor being the revered Lubavitcher Rebbe, who was known globally for the passionate wisdom he bestowed on humankind. Rabbi Levi lives in Malibu with his wife Sarah, and their seven children.
