On Monday, March 5, at 7:30 p.m., Chabad of West Orange will host a guest speaker, Rabbi Ari Edelkopf. Rabbi Edelkopf is the Chabad shaliach and the rabbi of the Jewish community of Montenegro. He is the former shaliach of Sochi, Russia, where he served the community for 17 years. He and his wife worked around the clock for weeks to prepare for thousands coming to Sochi for the 2014 Winter Olympics. So, why does he now reside in Podgorica, Montenegro?
