Rabbi Zalman Gurkov, (and family) arrived here from his previous post as Rabbi in Newton, MA, to establish Chabad of Nashoba Valley in Westford, MA. Through his outreach activities he created a renaissance of Jewish awareness in the area.

His casual and social character makes him a very approachable individual with a calming & comforting effect. "I am not a fountain, merely a funnel or a conduit" he likes to say. Similarly, he prefers to be known on a first name basis - Rabbi Zalman

Being a Chabad representative - Shliach of the Lubavitcher Rebbe - is his passion. "The essential goal is to reach out to touch the heart of another human being, to help foster Jewish identity & pride for another Jew, to make this world a better place, and to help achieve a universal redemption via the hastening of Mashiach's arrival, these are the qualities that were imbedded in me by the Rebbe - the greatest Jewish leader of our generation" he says.
