As the International Kinus Hashluchim came to an end this week, a young Chabad couple has announced their appointment to a new Shlichus post on campus.
Rabbi Shlomo Elkan and his wife Devorah have just moved to Oberlin College, a selective private liberal arts college in Oberlin, Ohio.
They are joined by their two children Hadassah (3) and Yanky (1).
They will be opening a Jewish Student Center at Oberlin College that will service the estimated 1000 Jewish students on campus.
The new Shluchim were appointed by Rabbi Leibel Alevsky, Head Shliach of Greater Cleveland.
