About this Book
One might not think of Thailand as a bastion of Jewish life. Don’t tell that to Rabbi Yosef Kantor and a team of Shluchim—emissaries of the Lubavitcher Rebbe. Meet adventure-seeking backpackers who discover something much more valuable—the beauty of their own heritage; hospital patients in dire need; family members seeking lost relatives; unfortunate prisoners whose lives might have otherwise whittled away; visitors in trouble with the authorities; and Thai royalty praising Chabad.
Sharing his vulnerabilities and successes, Rabbi Kantor demonstrates Divine Providence at every turn. The Rebbe coined the Far East as, “A place not called near.” There is no such thing as a Jew who is far, whether in Thailand or anywhere else. Culled from Rabbi Kantor’s weekly emails, enjoy these inspiring vignettes.
