Rabbi Chaim and Mushkie Loschak moved to Montecito, CA in 2022 with their three children Nechama, Chana and Yosef

About Us:

Chabad of Montecito was founded in 2022 by Rabbi Chaim and Mushkie Loschak based on the core teaching of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneersohn, of blessed memory, that every Jew is an integral and indispensable part of the Jewish people. 

We are here to serve the Jewish community's physical and spiritual needs. To enrich Jewish life and community in Montecito by sharing the warmth and joy of Judaism through educational experiences, cultural events, and traditional services.

People of all backgrounds live in Montecito to repose, reflect, connect, and rejuvenate. They come to Chabad of Montecito for the same reasons. No Jew in Montecito should feel lonely, detached from our heritage, or uncared for.

Join us in connecting to your fellow friends, discover more about your Judaism, and celebrate it with friends and family!

We love talking and getting to know the local community. Please feel free to reach out and connect!

We are founded on the principle that, while Jews may embrace many levels of observance in their personal lives, there should be a place for all—regardless of background, knowledge, or affiliation—to develop a sense of community and enhance the experience of being Jewish.

We believe that every human being is created in G‑d's image and is an integral part of the tapestry of G‑d's creation. With our unique contributions, each of us is here to create a better world and enhance the lives of others.
