The Rivkin's

Rabbi Chaim, was born and raised in Kfar Chabad, Israel and moved on to continue his studies at the prestigious Rabbinical college of the Chabad Central Yeshiva in Brooklyn, NY. There he received his Rabbinical ordination from the central Chabad Rabbinical court of Israel. 

While completing his rabbinical and postgraduate studies he spent the last 7 years, leading services and assisting in community outreach programs in Belgium, Panama, Israel, Hungry, Lithuania and and in the United states.

This gave him the desire to have his own Chabad house founded by the vision of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, to service a Jewish community through the same warm and loving environment he felt throughout his years assisting in other Chabad centers. 

For Sarale, growing up in the home of Rabbi Mordechai and Rochie Farkash the Rebbe's representatives and founders of of the East-side Torah Center in Bellevue, an open-home to all was a natural way of life. After graduating MMSC Jewish High school in Seattle, she traveled to Israel to study and discover more about Chassidic Philosophy and way of life. She has also traveled to assist in Chabad centers worldwide ranging all the way from Denmark to Cost Rica!

Helping to connect fellow Jews to their roots is a passion of hers and she is so happy to be back near her home town in the beautiful Kirkland area to fulfill her mission in bringing a warm Jewish presence to the area!

The Rivkin's together with their two children Mendel and Miriam in tow are here to stay, and here to fulfill their mission in spreading the light of Judaism!
