Chabad Lubavitch of Peabody is directed by Rabbi Nechemia & Raizel Schusterman, from California and New Jersey respectively.
Rabbi Nechemia Received his Rabbinical ordination in Israel, after studying in a wide array of Yeshivot from NY. to France, Russia to South Africa. Growing up in Southern California, he is no foreigner to the vast array of personalities that populate this area.
Mrs. Raizel Schusterman grew up in picturesque Morristown, NJ in the seat of the Rabbinical College of America and is a warm and enthusiastic leader with the qualifications to be a trend setter in innovative programming, and provide a warm environment for all Jews but specifically the women. Already women are flocking to her various programs. To contact Mrs. Schusterman e-mail her at raizel@JewishPeabody.com. Raizel Studied in Morristown, New York & Israel where she received her degree in education from Israel’s highest teachers accreditation forum.
The Schustermans spent 2 1/2 years interning as assistant Rabbi in Marina del Rey, California when they chose to open an independent Chabad Center in Peabody, Mass.
Since their arrival we have been pleasantly surprised by the warmth and welcoming nature of the Peabody community, and the tremendous response we have had to all activities that we have established.
Chabad of Peabody was established in August of 2003 as an affilate of Chabad Lubavitch of the North Shore (in Swampscott) under the dynamic leadership of Rabbi Yossi & Leah Lipsker. www.NSJewish.com
