Ep. 42: Fighting Fires and Pedaling Wine Bicycles: the Portland Jewish Oasis

In Episode 42 of Lamplighters: Stories From Chabad Emissaries On The Jewish Frontier, reporter/producer Gary Waleik presents the story of Rabbi Chayim and Rebbetzin Simi Mishulovin, Chabad emissaries to Portland, Oregon. The Mishulovins have parlayed their knowledge of their city with their creativity to create an innovative storefront/shmooze center for Jews in their home city. But two near total disasters almost put an end to their Shlichus.  

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.
