Rabbi Dovber and Chana'le Dechter, together with their daughters Moussia and Risya recently moved cross-country from Brooklyn, NY to Downtown Phoenix, AZ to serve the growing population of Jewish residents and visitors of Downtown Phoenix. 

Rabbi Dovber grew up in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY, and studied at Yeshivos in Brooklyn, France and the Rabbinical College of America in New Jersey. He was later certified in rabbinic judicial ordination and a rigorous course in advanced contemporary halacha. From Mongolia to Siberia, Florida to California, Rabbi Dovber has traveled around the globe sharing his passion for Jewish life and his love for Judaism with others. 

Chana'le was raised in Rancho Mirage, California, and was involved in outreach from a young age. A graduate of Chabad schools and seminary in Jerusalem, she ran educational programs in California and administrating projects for the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI).

Having been involved in Jewish education and outreach around the world, they are excited and eager to embark on this new journey and call Downtown Phoenix home!
