Chabad in Rome, established 40 years ago by Rabbi Yitzchok and Sarah Hazan, has expanded in recent years with a Chabad House, daily Talmud Tora Hebrew school and more. The Shaikevitz couple will also be assisting activities at Chabad of Rome.
They join the other Shluchim in Rome: Rabbi Menachem and Rivkie Lazar of Chabad Piazza Bologna, Rabbi Shalom and Chana Hazan of Chabad Lubavitch di Monteverde, and Rabbi Ronnie Canarutto of Chabad Viale Libia.
