Ep. 45: Creating Jewish Ambassadors in the KKK’s Backyard

In Episode 45 of Lamplighters: Stories From Chabad Emissaries On The Jewish Frontier, reporter/producer Gary Waleik presents the story of Rabbi Levi and Rebbetzin Chaish Mentz. They’d been told there were no Jews in Forsyth County, Georgia… by hundreds of the first Jews they met. Their decision to permanently locate in northern Georgia has inspired well over a thousand Jews to become ambassadors and to build a thriving, all-inclusive Jewish community that no one thought possible just a few years ago.  

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.
