The classic Chicago greystones and quirky bars lining stately Logan Boulevard in Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood are home these days to young, upwardly mobile professionals. So Mitch Trachtenberg did a double-take when he spotted black-hatted and bearded Rabbi Avremi Raichik strolling the boulevard this summer. Along with his wife, Rivky, and their young children, the rabbi had just moved to the neighborhood to direct the newly formed Chabad of Logan Square. For the past few months, the Raichiks have been knocking on doors, fielding phone calls from neighborhood residents and getting the word out that they are open for business.
