Rabbi Yosef Chaim Kantor, originally from Australia, moved in 1993 to Bangkok, Thailand to become Chief Rabbi of the city and director of Chabad of Thailand. He and his wife and family have built up a network of Chabad Houses and outposts throughout Thailand. Over the last 20 years, many thousands of Jews, from Israeli backpackers to businessmen from around the world, have joined them for a meal, a Shabbos, or longer. They have assisted and directed rescue efforts during national disasters and are the place to call for families who have lost track of their loved ones.\ in the far east.
