Chabad of Bradenton

Chabad of Bradenton & Lakewood Ranch is directed by Rabbi Mendy & Chanie Bukiet & their family, emissaries of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson. Their approach is that Torah must be presented and experienced in a modern, relevant context and made available to each individual on their own level.

Chabad of Bradenton and Lakewood Ranch has been serving the Manatee Jewish Community since August 2004 with many Jewish educational and social programs. Chabad seeks to strengthen the Jewish identity of the Manatee area Jewish community and to ensure Jewish continuity among Jews of all ages. Chabad’s programs include; Friday night dinners, weekly Shabbat services, holiday celebrations, women’s programs, men's club, Bar & Bat Mitzvah training, adult education classes, and a Hebrew School among other Jewish enrichment programs.

Chabad of Bradenton & Lakewood Ranch is an organization that provides social, educational, recreational, and religious programming. Chabad is a place where every Jew, affiliated or unaffiliated, observant or non-observant, can come and feel comfortable. We believe that regardless of educational background or affiliation, it is the inalienable right of every Jewish person to learn and participate in our heritage, which belongs to us equally.
