Windsor Chabad House in the News
There is no question that Rabbi Galperin, wife Rivkah, and their darling children have brought a new sense of life and vitality to the Jewish community of Windsor. Their efforts at creating a Chabad house for the Jewish students at the University of Windsor have made a lasting impression on some of the school's alumni, and the story has now gone international.

The Rabbis Galperin
Here's a trivia question for the ages.
When was the last time four Chabad rabbis walked the streets of Windsor together?
Well, this past Friday night after services, Rabbi Galperin, his father, and two of his brothers were spotted walking down the street together. It was such a strange sight, two passerby's asked if they could take pictures of the group.
I can't remember when (or even if) this has ever happened before, so I asked if they could be photographed together at Rabbi Galperin's home. Here is the photo they provided:
Pictured here are Rabbi Chanoch Galperin (second from left) and his sons Rabbi Shmaya Galperin (left), our Rabbi Sholom Galperin (second from right), and Rabbi Levi Galperin (right).
In case you're wondering, Rabbi Chanoch Galperin is also the son of a rabbi.
