Lamplighters Podcast: Bagels, Bears & Baalei Teshuva in Berkeley

In Episode 24 of Lamplighters: Stories From Chabad Emissaries On The Jewish Frontier, reporter/producer Gary Waleik presents the story of Rabbi Yehuda and Rebbetzin Miriam Ferris who, for the last 40 years, have shared the beauty of the Torah with the Jews of freewheeling Berkeley, California. The Ferrises are a good fit there because, like the people they serve, they are characters themselves.  

Lamplighters: Stories From Chabad Emissaries On The Jewish Frontier is producing a series of moving, beautifully produced, sound-rich and often surprising stories of Chabad shluchim and the people they inspire in every corner of the world.
