Emissary in Exile
Jewish Week,Wednesday, February 18, 2015
When Chani Gopin and her husband moved to Lugansk 15 years ago to open a Chabad center in the small Eastern Ukrainian city, she thought it would be hard. But she had no idea just how hard it would be. Gopin and her husband, Rabbi Sholom Gopin, have worked as the movement’s emissaries in Lugansk, a small city in eastern Ukraine, for the past 15 years. But the conflict between Ukraine’s government and Russian-allied separatists engulfed the region last spring, reducing a city once populated by about 600,000 people to half that number and creating tens of thousands of refugees, some 2,500 of whom are Jews...

20 Years Later, Chabad Reflects on the Continued Influence of the Lubavitcher Rebbe
Jerusalem Post,Tuesday, February 17, 2015
...Over and over, when asked how much Chabad has changed, either for better or for worse, in the years since Schneerson’s death, Chabad officials and emissaries turn back to focus not on the movement he inspired but on the man himself, and how his personal influence, warmth, intelligence and spirituality continue to inform the actions of his followers today. Sunday evening’s keynote speaker, Goldie Avtzon from Hong Kong, who with her husband was the first emissary to establish a Chabad House in Asia, recalled the words that Schneerson said when sending a particularly nervous new female emissary to her post on the other side the world: “I am going with you.”...
