Ep. 33: A Small Jewish Community in an African City of 20 Million

In Episode 33 of Lamplighters: Stories From Chabad Emissaries On The Jewish Frontier, reporter/producer Gary Waleik presents the story of Rabbi Mendy and Rebbetzin Mazal Sternbach, who left the well-established and comfortable Chabad Communities in which they grew up and settled in Nigeria after they were married. Their experiences in Lagos over the last two-plus years have not only strengthened that city’s unique Jewish community, but it’s also brought them into contact with Christians and Muslims who appreciate the presence of what they call “the people of the Bible.”  

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.
