CHABAD IS becoming increasingly active in Jerusalem, with Chabad emissaries in almost every neighborhood and Chabad centers in most neighborhoods. But few are as active and creative as Chabad of Rehavia director Rabbi Yisroel Goldberg and his wife, Shoshi, who are forever dreaming up new projects to attract and involve more people from different backgrounds and age groups.

Their latest venture is Young at Heart, in which they aim to bridge gaps between youth in age and youth in spirit. Partnering with schools, youth movements and community organizations, they want to encourage joint activities such as MasterChef competitions in restaurants, art exhibitions and tours; voluntary classes in which people of the third age will teach music, art, languages and other subjects of interest to younger people; and various other activities that will enable people of different age groups to connect.
