Chabad of Downtown

Established in 2008, Chabad of Downtown serves as a center for Jewish life and education in the downtown Baltimore area. Chabad is dedicated to making the beauty of our Jewish heritage accessible to all Jews. We welcome and accepts all Jews regardless of background or affiliation.

We serve the Jewish professionals working in downtown; the growing Jewish communities of Federal Hill, the West Side, Mt. Vernon, Harbor East, Fells Point and Canton; as well as downtown’s many students, young professionals, visitors and patients.

We encourage you to learn about the many programs Chabad offers by browsing this website or by contacting us directly at 410-605-0505 or We look forward to personally greeting you at an upcoming class or event.

Meet the Staff

Rabbi Levi Druk studied rabbinic jurisprudence and Chassidic philosophy in Yeshivot in Oak Park, MI; Kfar Chabad, Israel; and Miami, FL. He received his rabbinical ordination from the Central Yeshivah in Brooklyn, NY. Rabbi Druk has lectured and directed community outreach and educational initiatives in the U.S., Canada, Israel, the former Soviet Union, former Yugoslavia and Argentina.

Mrs. Chani Druk is an educator par excellence, who has been teaching early childhood education for over a decade, previously in Manhattan, NY and currently in Baltimore. Chani directed various educational and community programs in Israel, Arizona, Florida, New York and Maryland.

The Druk’s are the proud parents of five children, who have already become important (and very popular) partners in their parents’ work.
