    A Chabad center is now available to the Jewish population in the western suburbs of Cleveland, thanks to a Westlake couple.

    Rabbi Mendel Jacobs and his wife, Rebbetzin Devorah Jacobs, recently moved to Westlake to open up the Chabad center.

    There are 4,000 global centers that offer Jewish education for adults and children and also provides social services. It also will bring Jewish community events and Jewish cultural events, Jacobs said. The centers are run by full time emissary families.

    Jacobs grew up in Cleveland Heights and wanted to bring a Chabad to the west side. The Chabad center in Westlake was founded under the auspices of Chabad of Northeast Ohio, directed by Rabbi Leibel and Devorah Alevsky, and is an affiliate of the global Chabad-Lubavitch movement.

    Jacobs said the western Cleveland suburbs had been highly unaccounted for, adding that there is a large Jewish population there.

    “There’s very little Jewish activities going on in the west side,” he said.

    There will be celebrations for the High Holiday Service where they will celebrate the Jewish new year of 5776, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Services will be held at the Westlake Recreation Center due to the high volume of people Jacobs said he is anticipating. Morning services for Rosh Hashanah will be held at 10 a.m., Sept. 14-15. An evening service for Yom Kippur takes place at 7:15 p.m., Sept. 22. A morning and closing service is 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., Sept. 23. Jacobs encourages all to attend.

    Jacobs said he is thrilled that he and his wife finally opened up a Chabad center on the westside.

    “I am so excited, and the people that I meet over here are very, very happy,” he said. “It’s long overdue. There’s really gotta be something over here, too.”

    The Chabad-Lubavitch movement, a branch of Hasidism, swept through Russia and spread in surrounding countries as well.

    “It provided scholars with answers that eluded them, and simple farmers with a love that had been denied them,” according to the website. “Eventually, the philosophy of Chabad-Lubavitch and its adherents reached almost every corner of the world and affected almost every facet of Jewish life.”
