Daniel Peleg

“I was never involved with Chabad, and when my father died suddenly, Rabbi Levin and the Chabad community were amazing. They helped me with whatever I needed. I was immediately accepted and made to feel welcome. In this community, we are all on the same team. When I was evicted from my house, another apartment was immediately found for me. Chabad has always been extremely understanding.”

Our New Building


The Babenko family has been a part of the Chabad in the Kensington neighborhood for the last 20 years. Their entire family has become involved in ways they couldn’t have imagined. Now as president of the Chabad Community Center building committee, Eugene is delighted to be making great progress towards completing the unique and inspirational center that will have a profound impact on countless lives of every age and background, not just in all of Brooklyn, but broader across NYC and beyond!

The Ayzenbergs are a baal teshuva family thanks to the Chabad of Central Brooklyn. Steve runs a supply chain technology firm and Michelle, a former VP in the banking sector is in the personal wellness space. They recognize the infinite value and safety of the beautiful life and community they are now a part of and are deeply committed to amplifying the message through every act in their daily lives, but specifically with the construction of this landmark center. Having been raised in Brooklyn, they know the challenges facing the family unit, children, young adults and communities at large and fervently believe that the new JCC and its services are needed here more than anywhere else.

The Husarskys have grown up in Central Brooklyn their entire lives. Both Menachem and Malka went to Orthodox yeshivas in the area growing up. With a renewed connection to Orthodox Judaism because of Chabad, Menachem and Malka have formed a strong connection within the Chabad community, They routinely help out with community programs and events, and Menachem has been very active at helping Chabad raise funds for the new JCC building and the current temporary community center. Menachem has been in the business world for 15+ years, and is very active currently in commercial real estate and 3D Printing.

The Koblovs are a recent addition to the community, having returned home to Brooklyn from the Silicon Valley, where they have helped build a Chabad community from scratch. Now out of their home in Kensington, Brooklyn, Nik and Liza are building two startups, Ramp and JelikaLite respectively and are passionate about revitalizing Jewish life in NYC post-COVID. They’ve raised their children with strong Jewish roots, but are dissatisfied with the neighborhood’s options for the youth and the lack of connecting social and business tissue in the neighborhood. They have committed their time and money to making a difference through building of the new JCC, and have opened their home to the weekly Tanya class.
