Rabbi Fishel

Rabbi Fishel grew up in Oak Park, Michigan, where his father has served as a Chabad Rabbi for over Twenty years. Upon completion of his studies, he was ordained by leading Rabbis from America & Israel, including former chief Rabbi of Israel, Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu. Rabbi Zaklos taught in the Boys Yeshiva in Chicago, and conducted after-school programs for elementary school children.

Rabbi Zaklos also served as a student intern providing educational programs and holiday events for several Jewish communities in the United States. He visited cities throughout Eastern Europe, and the Far East, most notably, directing the world's largest Passover Seder in Katmandu, Nepal and another in Vietnam. He also directed overnight children's camps in Moscow, Montreal, and Tucson, Arizona.


Mrs. Ettie Zaklos was born in Brooklyn, New York, and grew up in the Lubavitcher Rebbe's "backyard", where she was imbued with a sense of mission and purpose to share her love for Judaism with her fellow Jews. Ettie studied at the Beth Rivka School in New York, and spent two years in advanced studies in Jerusalem. She completed her college years in Beth Chana of Safed, Israel and graduated with a teacher's degree majoring in Judaic Studies.

At her brother's Chabad House in Prague, Czech Republic, Ettie implemented many successful holiday programs for the growing Jewish community there. She has been a counselor and an activity director for camps in Moscow, Berlin, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and Sharon, Massachusetts. Ettie has spent the last few years teaching Jewish studies to children of various ages in Long Island and the Bronx.
