Jews living in East African nations and doing business across that part of the vast, natural resource-rich continent will soon have a reliable “go-to” address for their high holy day, kashruth and other Jewish needs.

The worldwide Chabad-Lubavitch Chassidic movement has announced it is about to open the first Chabad center in East Africa, scheduled to launch just before the Jewish high holy days in Nairobi, Kenya.

Rabbi Avromy and Sternie Super are set to co-direct Chabad of Kenya and will lead the new Nairobi Hebrew Congregation throughout the holidays, according to Chabad.org.

In addition, the Chabad movement is expected to establish a permanent presence in Nigeria. Chabad is already in Angola and Ghana, the site reported.
