Rabbi Yisroel Chaim and Bassie (nee Barber) Shuchat were recently appointed as shluchim to S. Pedro, California, a community in Los Angeles renowned for its world famous port and its cultural attractions.
S. Pedro is a unique blend of small-town charm and superb cultural attractions. The community, which was an independent community until 1909, is one of the most historic and picturesque regions in Los Angeles, attracting a large number of tourists each year.
The community is also home to the Port of Los Angeles, the busiest port of the nation. It is a rapidly gentrifying area, attracting young families and professionals. Dubbed, “LA’s last affordable beach town”, this town is set to grow rapidly in the coming years with multi million dollar investments for the new waterfront Promenade, the downtown area, as well as lots of new housing developments.
“We are overjoyed to be able to open a Chabad House in this town and infuse the area with Jewish vitality, pride, and enthusiasm. Chabad of S. Pedro will offer a wide range of services and programs for all ages,” Rabbi Shuchat told Anash.org.
