Chabad Detroit


Share the Love

“The most important thing two people should do when they meet -- is to help a third person”.

The Rebbe


At ChabaD we are obsessed with reaching people and building community together. We find the second person and together we reach out to the third. Together we find opportunities to build community in Detroit and beyond.


At ChabaD our door is always open for you to have a meaningful Jewish experience, whether it’s your first time or your thousandth.


The Pinsons

Rabbi Yisrael and Devorah Pinson come from Chabad Lubavitch families going back to the 18th century. Since 1942, their families have operated Chabad institutions in New York, Morocco, Tunisia, France, Ohio, and now Detroit. For the Pinsons, ChabaD is not a job, it is a legacy. It is a natural extension of their own family. Their children Chaya Mushka, Menachem Mendel, Shmuel, Shayna, and Aryeh Leyb are involved from a young age just as their mother and father were with their families.



Our Location

Our own historic estate was designed by Peter Dederich and built for Mrs. WIlliam Van Dyke in 1908. The 4.200 foot 3-story home has beautiful front facade of brick, wood, and cut stone that truly stands out.  Dark-stained wood finishes adorn the over 20 rooms within. The home at 278 Mack has been referred to as distinctly Victorian Gothic and complemented with Tudor Revival and Neo-Classical elements. Simply put, it is a relic of an age-old tradition that Detroit hasn’t seen in a long time. The vernacular traditions of Brush Park are still alive because of the veracity of homes like 278 Mack.

Brush Park

Brush Park is a historic district between midtown and downtown Detroit. It is bounded by Woodward Avenue, Mack Avenue, Beaubien Street, and the east-west portion of I-75. The neighborhood is well known for its beautiful brick homes which combine Victorian-era romanticism with Midwestern U.S. charm and style. The neighborhood is also known for its brilliant and ongoing revitalization in the early 2000s, to which ChabaD is ecstatic to contribute.
