Meet Rabbi Mickey
We are proud of the people that bring their energy to Tudor Heights, and few are better examples of that spirit than Rabbi Mickey Lebovic. Rabbi Mickey is a long-standing member of our community, and as rabbi, plays an integral role in keeping our residents and community connected to faith. We asked Rabbi Mickey about his experience at Tudor Heights – here are his answers!
What is your role at Tudor Heights?
I bring the religious life to the community. My mission is to provide an engaging, happy, and meaningful religious experience to the residents of Tudor Heights, and I do so in a myriad of ways. From being a listening ear to residents’ memories of religious life, to lighting candles Friday night with residents, to having morning sabbath services with the residents.
How long have you been at Tudor Heights?
Around four years.
What is your favorite thing about your job?
My favorite thing about the opportunity to be a part of Tudor Heights is being able to be myself. The residents really appreciate my open, warm, and friendly personality and it is great to be in an environment which encourages my personality to shine through.
What is your favorite thing about the community?
My favorite thing about the Tudor Heights community is the warm and supportive atmosphere surrounding the religious experience. Residents and staff alike truly enjoy the religious engagement, they love belting out the familiar tunes, participating in the conversations, and experiencing the learning. The community supports religious engagement and the residents voices are heard in terms of what they want from the religious experience. I especially love when the outside community comes to engage the residents in this area. For example, this month, we had a local synagogue come with their youth to make sukkah decorations with the resident – it was a blast!
What is the one thing you would want someone considering a move to Tudor Heights to know?
I would want them to know that there will be a place for them in the religious life at Tudor Heights and the sky’s the limit!
