Ep. 28: From Kabul To Fremont: An Afghan Family Moves Into A Chabad House

In Episode 28 of Lamplighters: Stories From Chabad Emissaries On The Jewish Frontier, reporter/producer Gary Waleik presents the story of Rabbi Moshe and Rebbetzin Chaya Fuss of Fremont, California. Their Chabad house sits in the middle of what’s called Fremont’s “Mini Kabul,” neighborhood, so when chaos prevailed in Afghanistan in the summer of 2021, they were prepared to help. They didn’t stop until they ended up welcoming an Afghan refugee family into their home for an extended stay. 

Lamplighters: Stories From Chabad Emissaries On The Jewish Frontier is producing a series of moving, beautifully produced, sound-rich and often surprising stories of Chabad shluchim and the people they inspire in every corner of the world.
