Rabbi Yossi and Mushka Greenberg grew up in Brooklyn, NY. Rabbi Yossi graduated from the Central Lubavitch Yeshivah, and has spent much time in outreach, caring and volunteering for Jewish causes. Mushka is a graduate of Beth Chana Teacher’s Seminary in Israel, and is a preschool teacher by trade. Their love for every Jew is what drives them to follow the directives of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, and open up a Chabad Educational Center at Miami University in Ohio. Akiva, Levi, Yocheved and Schneur Zalman love meeting new people and greeting them with their infectious smiles.

It was characteristic of the Rebbe to translate ideas into reality. Along with being a visionary with a global perspective, and a leader who inspired his audience to become partners to his vision – the Rebbe called for concrete action, and set in place practical programs that would accomplished the objective.
Q: But I am not religious AT ALL, can I still come?
A: Absolutely! At Chabad we encourage everyone to leave their labels by the door. You don't have to be religious in order to be Jewish and you don't have to be Jewish to be a good person. That's that.
