In August 2011, we (Rabbi Moishe Kavka and my wife Esther Kavka) and our two little toddlers relocated from Brooklyn, New York to Rockville, Maryland to establish Chabad of Rockville. We were inspired by the life of the Lubavitcher Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of blessed memory, to bring to Rockville the light, learning, and love of Jewish life, and how the joys of Judaism can inform and enhance our everyday lives.


Particularly inspiring was The Lubavitcher Rebbe's devotion to meeting both the spiritual and physical needs of Jews by loving them unconditionally and nonjudgmentally. Our goal at Chabad of Rockville was to emulate these values, sharing the richness, excitement and warmth of Judaism in a welcoming and inclusive fashion.


Today, Esther and I continue to serve the Jews of Rockville, including visitors and newcomers. Come join us for a delicious, lively Shabbat Dinner… an inspiring Jewish learning session… holiday events a the Lessen Family Mommy and Me… or a meaningful Shabbat Service. Can't wait to meet you!
