Chabad Lubavitch Publishes Press Release on the Passing of Rabbi Yudi Dukes OBM


The worldwide family of Chabad Lubavitch emissaries is devastated by the passing of our dear beloved colleague Rabbi Yehuda Dukes, 39.

Yudi, as he was known by all of us, fought a courageous and difficult battle since being hospitalized with Covid-19 in March.

Rabbi Dukes, a father of 6, was the director of JNet, a program operating out of Chabad Lubavitch Headquarters, which has peered learning Torah partners around the country and around the world.

Over the past 10 months, his wife Sarah has galvanized the prayers and random acts of kindness by thousands of people who were inspired by Yudi’s valiant fight.

Our hearts go out to Sarah and their 6 children.

May Yudi’s legacy bring solace and comfort to the grieving family, colleagues and thousands of people who’ve been impacted by his journey.
