Chabad Sends New Shluchim to Newark

(Courtesy of Chabad) Rabbi Moshe Herson, head shliach to the state of New Jersey, announced the appointment of Rabbi Avrohom Minsky as Chabad shliach for the city of Newark. The appointment of Rabbi and Mrs. Avraham and Mushka Minsky to the Newark office brings the number of Chabad Centers in New Jersey to 62—“ken yirbu.”

The young and energetic Rabbi Minsky has traveled over three continents doing the Rebbe’s shlichus and bringing Yiddishkeit to remote communities in Africa, Europe and here in the U.S. Over the past few months, Rabbi and Mrs. Minsky have been successfully active in the city where they have been well received.

Chabad of Newark’s administrative office will be located at the Robert Treat Center. Bruce and Miles Berger, owners of the building, have made available all they can in order for Rabbi Minsky to succeed in his work. The Bergers are active trustees of the Rabbinical College of America.

In addition to the Newark residents, the Minskys intend to reach out to the Jewish student population at Rutgers’ Newark campus, the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) and other educational centers stationed in Newark.

Students of the RCA are helping with Friday visitations to local homes, offices and senior centers.

The Minskys are planning to move to downtown Newark, where many New York Jewish residents have recently taken up residence.
