WHERE THE BROKEN PIECES LEAD YOU
A Documentary Film
Sixty years ago, American-born Rabbi Berel Baumgarten arrived in Buenos Aires as the first emissary of the Lubavitcher Rebbe to Argentina, a country that at the time boasted a Jewish population of over half a million souls.
Rabbi Baumgarten didn’t speak a word of Spanish, had little money in his pocket and nowhere to stay.
Sixty years later, Chabad is a household name in Argentina, with dozens of Chabad Houses in Buenos Aires alone, along with many other institutions.
This new film will tell for the first time the amazing story of how Rabbi Baumgarten, under the Rebbe’s close tutelage, planted the seeds for this enormous enterprise, individual by individual, soul by soul.
Rabbi Abraham Shemtov
Director | Chabad of Greater Philadelphia
Individuals from across the region’s different Chabad Houses will be recognized for their outstanding involvement.
