Chabad Cambodia was opened in 2009 to fill the void of Jewish center of any kind in the kingdom. There is no recorded history of any Jewish institution here prior to our arrival. Even the first Jewish Cemetery was open by us in 2014.
The center serves not only the over 150 Jews living in Phnom Penh; not only the additional 100 Jews living all over countryside; not only taking care of the thousands who are passing by Cambodia annually; but also carries a unique message to all: Every single Jew is important. No quantity of Jews is too small for a center to be opened, and no corner in this world is too far to be reached.
Yesha'aya Hanavie (Isaiah the Prophet) said: ואתם תלוקטו לאחד אחד בני ישראל. In the time of the ultimate redemption, G‑d will “collect” every single Jew from wherever he may be. No Jew will be left behind!

With the Rebbe at its helm, Chabad-Lubavitch has rapidly grown to be a worldwide presence, and all its various activities are stamped with his vision; small wonder then, that many ask, "What is there about his leadership that is so unique?"
