Oregon’s Chabad Families At Home With The Governor

Salem, Oregon

( Governor Ted Kulongoski hosted Oregon’s Chabad representatives and their children at his home for a family style kosher barbeque Tuesday morning.

The visit was decidedly informal, an opportunity for the Governor to spend time with Oregon’s 10 Chabad couples and their children serving the state’s Jewish community.

“It was a very unusual visit,” Rabbi Moshe Wilhelm, who presented the Governor with a shofar, in honor of the upcoming Rosh Hashana, told

Since Rabbi and Mrs. Wilhelm arrived here 25 years ago, Oregon's Jewish population has benefited from increased Jewish activity, with Chabad centers now enriching Jewish communities in Eugene, Bend, Ashland, Hillsboro and Salem.
