Ep. 34: A Searching Teenager Becomes Rabbi in his Hometown

In Episode 34 of Lamplighters: Stories From Chabad Emissaries On The Jewish Frontier, reporter/producer Gary Waleik presents the story of Rabbi Yitzchak Mendel Wagner of Krefeld, the first German-born rabbi since before World War II. Wagner’s story is a powerful example of Jewish continuity in a country that once was the site of darkness. Now, it’s generating light that’s inspiring others to build Jewish life. 

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.
