Chabad in the Community
The Chabad emissaries to Georgia, Rabbi Meir and Tzippy Kozlovsky, arrived in the capital city of Tbilisi in the year 5765 (2005 in the Gregorian calendar), and over the years, other emissaries have moved to the city, like Rabbi Ben Zion and Rachel Israeli, and Rabbi Zalmen and Bracha Zaks. Chabad emissaries passionately work to promote all facets of Jewish life in the community through an educational program suited to all ages. They also work tirelessly to help thousands of tourists coming to Georgia every year.
