On Sunday evening January 13th, friends and family members, students and Shluchim, took part in the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Shlichus of Rabbi Shalom and Rebbetzin Gitel Eidelman to Morocco.
Over 100 people from the local Jewish community attended the celebration honoring their beloved Shluchim.
Present at the event as well were; Mr. Serge Berdugo, President of the Moroccan Jewish Community, the chief Rabbi of Casablanca Rabbi Yossef Israel and Rabbi Yossef Yitzchak Gorodetsky, the Director of the European and North African Bureau of Chabad-Lubavitch.
At the Rebbe’s request, the Lubavitch presence was established in Morocco by the Rebbe’s Ba-Koach, Rabbi Benyamin E. Gorodetsky just a few weeks before Yud Shevat 5710/1950.
This year also marks the beginning of the 70th year of the Lubavitch presence as well as the many institutions that the Rebbe established in Morocco.
In the background you can see the picture of King Mohammed VI of Morocco, as is the case in any official event.
May Rabbi and Rebitzen Edelman be blessed with good health and continued success in their holy work on behalf of Moroccan Jewry and may we all merit the coming of Moshiach speedily in our day!
