New Shluchim have joined The Rebbe's Army of Shluchim. Rabbi and Mrs. Chanan Chernitsky are opening a Bais Chabad in Newfoundland, a remote Canadian island. They will be serving the Jewish population of 500 with all their needs for Jewish life.
The Chernitsky's have been doing mivtzoim on the island for the past year, including Pesach sedorim, and more, and Merkos Shluchim visit Newfoundland annually. The couple have now established a permanent Lubavitcher presence on the island, with the upsherenish of their son Mendel to be their opening event. It will be the first upsherenish in 40 years.
