Jewish Revival in the Birthplace of Hip-Hop

When Rabbi Choli and Chana Mushka (Alevsky) Mishulovin first drove through the neighborhoods of South Bronx, they weren’t sure about setting up a Chabad center among the graffitied buildings.

"Today we are making history, for our city and for our people," Rabbi Shalom Rabinovitz, Chabad emissary to Bad Homburg vor der Höhe, Germany, announced at the inauguration of the city’s first synagogue in eighty years. These words were spoken at the site of a former ancient synagogue, destroyed in 1938.
