JNS.org – The Chabad-Lubavitch Hasidic movement on Sunday announced that it will open three new centers — in Uganda, Montenegro and Laos.

The announcement was made at the annual International Conference of Chabad-Lubavitch Emissaries in New York, where some 4,700 emissaries gathered for a festive dinner with about 1,000 supporters and guests.

Chabad’s emissaries travel around the world to establish religious centers for Jewish and Israeli travelers, including in the most remote locations. Chabad centers are located in nearly 100 countries.

In recent years, Chabad has established a presence in the Cayman Islands, Kenya, the Bahamas and New Caledonia.

Last year, Chabad’s opening of a center in South Dakota marked the movement’s expansion to all 50 US states.
