Ep. 3: Kligman Wants To Be First Shabbos-Observant Big Leaguer

Chabad-Lubavitch Headquarters drops the third episode in its series of podcasts about the personal struggles and achievements of Chabad representatives.

In Episode 3 of Lamplighters: Stories From Chabad Emissaries On The Jewish Frontier, high school baseball player Elie Kligman tells reporter/producer Gary Waleik about his goal to become the first-ever Major Leaguer to be completely Sabbath-observant. Kligman faces big challenges, but Chabad of Summerlin (Las Vegas) Rabbi Chaim Ozer Metal, aka “The Rally Rabbi”, is there to support Kligman on – and off – the diamond. 

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 emissaries and the people they inspire in every corner of the world.
