The Lubavitch movement, a Hassidic sect, will send emissaries to West Berlin and South Africa to help further Jewish education, it was announced here. Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, who heads the movement, said he has delegated Rabbi Yaakov Gurkov to go to Berlin at the request of Jews in that city to help them organize educational activities. He also announced that American-born Rabbi Shmuel Lew will go to South Africa on a lecture tour. His trip will be the first venture of the Lubavitch movement in South Africa.
