R’ Nachum was born in Tashkent in 1971 to his parents Rabbi Levi and Malka Pressman. When he was three and a half months old, his family immigrated to Eretz Yisroel and settled in Nachlas Har Chabad.

During the Kinus Hashluchim this year, his community celebrated the groundbreaking for a beautiful new Chabad center near the city’s Parliament.
