    As a mom, I’m always on the lookout for opportunities to create lasting memories with my children. Last Chol Hamoed, I stumbled upon a hidden gem that promises not only fun but also valuable life lessons. Allow me to introduce you to the Rubashkin House, a sanctuary that has quickly become a cherished discovery in our family’s journey, located at 1349 President Street, right in the heart of Crown Heights.

    The Rubashkin House: A Sanctuary of Hachnasos Orchim and Chesed

    The Rubashkin House may be a new name to many, but it’s a place where lasting memories are made. The simplicity of this experience allows for genuine bonding and shared moments that my children will treasure for years to come.

    Hachnasos Orchim, the welcoming of guests, is the heart and soul of the Rubashkin House. This sanctuary is a haven for individuals and families alike, providing a warm, inviting environment where guests are embraced with open arms and treated with utmost care and consideration.

    The Rubashkin House is more than just a place of hospitality; it’s a true house of chesed, where acts of loving-kindness are woven into the very fabric of its existence. Here, the needs of guests are anticipated and met with genuine compassion, creating an environment of selfless giving and heartfelt connection.

    Amidst this vibrant tapestry, you’ll find a grand sukkah that stretches as far as the eye can see. It’s a crazy big sukkah that embodies the spirit of unity and togetherness, where families and friends gather to share meals, stories, and camaraderie.

    So I challenge you, instead of spending your savings on six flags, come woth me to Crown Heights and show you kids what true chesed means.


    What an amazing way to talk up a Sukkah open to the public. I’m sure children would absolutely choose going to a community Sukkah instead of six flags. Mi Kaamcha Yisroel!

    Let the fireworks begin!


    This sounds amazing, are you saying I can go any day? Is there a website I can check?


    you can get more info and watch a brief video at rubashkinhouse dot com……it appears to be a really massive operation going 24×7


    After you visit that, visit the mega sukkas of the chadisus’s in BP and Williamsburg, now those are sights to see.


    @Kuvult Right now it is October 5th 2023, at 8:15am. The profile of @Themom2022 says it was created 6 days 4 days ago, and the last activity was 5 days, 22 hours ago.

    It would seem that the date the account was created on (6 days, 4 hours from the time I am posting this) would be Friday September 29th around 4am. And the last activity (5 days, 22 hours from the time I am posting this) would be Friday September 29th around 10am.

    However, this is slightly complicated by the fact that the time and date @Themom2022’s post was posted is Sunday October 1st at 11:55pm (motzai yom tov). This would seem to contradict the last activity that is listed on @Themom2022’s profile. However, I would chalk this up to the post being made somewhere between 4am and 10am on Friday September 29th, but not being approved by a moderator untill Sunday October 1st at 11:55pm.

    Other than this 1 post the account @Themom2022 has no other topics started and no comments or interactions.

    Also, a cursory look at the website (<a href=”rubashkinhouse. com”) shows that they are around $700,000 into a $1M RaiseThon campaign – and they take Cashapp and Zelle, too! The website isn’t even their own website – it is just a standard-issue RaiseThon page, but with their own domain name.

    And while this is billed as some community kitchen chessed type situation, this doesn’t even seem to be catering to poor familys or – its just a play for Lubavitchers who came to 770 and need somewhere to eat/stay to go. The page also displays images such as the pesukim about Hakhel next to a picture of the Lubavitcher Rebbe (trying to shtell coming to the rebbe/770 to the Yidden going to the beis hamikdash on the Shalosh Regalim r”l), and a message ‘hosting and caring for the rebbe’s guests is our communal responsibility’.

    It doesn’t seem that this post was a ploy solely to make money, as they didn’t put any links or make any outright references to donating. So this would seem to be a psy-op by Lubavitchers to drag us down to Crown Heights and take our money and/or Yiddishkeit.

    Also, it seems to be named the Rubashkin House for Moshe Rubashkin (the proprietor), but it has nothing to do with the famous Rubashkin (one would hope the naming isn’t a cynical ploy to attract non-Lubavitchers with a recognized name).

    A gutten moed!


    I posted earlier something here that I was not sure is appropriate and seems that mods kindly agreed with that (unless the post was eaten by software). The conundrum here is – on one hand, some info may be considered Lashon Hara. On the other hand, pretending that everyone is on board here is also Hillul Hashem.

    I am not sure how to resolve this. One possible solution would be not to mention questionable personalities at all, but that would keep their personality cult continue growing under the radar.
