Rabbi Dovid Bush

Rabbi Dovid Bush grew up in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn, NY. After completing his yeshiva studies in New York and Montreal, he received his Rabbinical ordination from the Central Lubavitch Yeshiva in 2008. Dovid has always been passionate about outreach, volunteering, supervising and directing summer camps, public passover seders, orphanages and classes in Canada, France, Ukraine, and elsewhere.

A dynamic and vibrant rabbi, Dovid has an exceptional knack for connecting with people of all ages and backgrounds. He is a gifted teacher and experienced administrator, and enjoys sharing his love for Judaism, sense of humor and juggling prowess (you should see him juggle fire torches at Bar Mitzvahs!) in an energetic and experiential fashion.

Devorah Bush

Devorah Bush, the oldest of eight children, grew up in San Diego, California, where her parents have been Chabad emissaries for 30 years. With her exceptional love for children, and energetic, upbeat personality, Devorah is a master educator with years of experience teaching preschool and elementary students in New York, New Jersey, Boston and Israel.

Devorah has always dreamt of directing a Chabad House. From hosting Shabbat and holiday dinners to studying with bat mitzvah girls and community members, Devorah shares her excitement and love for Judaism with everyone she meets.

From 2012 until mid-2015 Dovid and Devorah served as the Directors of children and family programming, as well as directors of Hebrew School of the Arts at the Chai Center in Brookline, MA, developing a thriving community.

Rabbi Dovid and Devorah look forward to establishing Chabad of Petaluma in the fall of 2015 and creating a vibrant community center where all Jews feel welcome.
