About Us

Chabad of Rural Georgia
Rabbi Chaim Markovits grew up in Sydney, Australia. He studied for his Rabbinical ordination in Pretoria, South Africa. He then moved to NY where he directed the Released Time Jewish education program for public school students in Staten Island until his marriage to Chayala in 2017.


Chayala hails from Bel Air, CA where she grew up with a strong involvement in her parents’ Chabad House. In 2011 Chayala co-founded the International Young Chabad Women’s convention. Chayala also currently is the program coordinator for Chabad of Bel Air, as well as the principal of their growing Hebrew School.


Rabbi Chaim and Mrs. Chayala Markovits are the co-founders of the organization which was established in 2019. They relocated to Atlanta, Georgia in June 2020 and have been residing there ever since.

Merkos L'Inyonei Chinuch was founded by the 6th Rebbe, Rabbi Joseph I, Schneerson, of righteous memory. He appointed his son-in-law Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson who is considered the most influential rabbi in modern history. The Rebbe orchestrated a Jewish revival after the Holocaust and built the network of Chabad-Lubavitch institutions that serves millions around the world today. Over 5,000 Chabad-Lubavitch emissary families continue to realize the Rebbe’s vision of making Judaism accessible to all. 


In his inspiration Chabad of Rural Georgia has been founded, answering the calls of the thousands of Jews who live throughout the state. With the singular goal of providing all things Jewish for our brothers and sisters who live away from the established Jewish communities, Chabad searches for Jews like a long lost sibling. Every Jew is invaluable and irreplacable.
