The Jewish Russian Community Center of Ontario is welcoming new Chabad Shluchim who will be running a branch of JRCC at Rockford to serve Russian speakers in North York.
Rabbi Shmuel and Esther Neft (nee Tyshenko) and their newborn son Menachem Mendel arrived last week from New York to join the JRCC team as Rabbi and Rebbetzin of the community at Rockford, near Toronto, Canada.
They were appointed by Rabbi Yoseph Y. Zaltzman.
“Under the guidance of the Rebbe, we are making Ahavat Yisroel – love a fellow Jew – our driving force,” says Rabbi Neft. “We are devoted to strengthening the Jewish community through a wide variety of educational programs and social services, serving Jews of all ages and walks of life.”
One of his first initiatives will be establishing a weekly class for women on various Jewish topics given by Mrs. Neft in Russian.
