The Miraculous Medallion

Tuesday, May 04, 2004

image3542.jpg
On live television, the coach of the Maccabi Tel Aviv basketball team Pini Gershon showed off the medallion he had been wearing during his team’s dramatic victory in the Final Four tournament on Motzoei Shabbos. The medallion had been made from a coin that came from the Rebbe and is worth around ten thousand dollars. Mr. Gershon stated that this medallion had brought about great miracles. Hundreds of people later approached Mr. Gershon with requests to borrow or even buy the medallion in order to receive blessings from the Rebbe. However, Mr. Gershon will never part with this precious treasure. (SOURCE & PHOTO: COL.ORG.IL)

Rabbi Lazar Thanks Altai Republic Governor for Tackling Anti-Semitism

Tuesday, May 04, 2004

IMAGE1300.JPG
MOSCOW, Russia - Chief Rabbi of Russia Berel Lazar thanked the Governor of the Altai Republic, Mikhail Lapshin, for his decisive steps in preventing anti-Semitism. Mr. Lapshin dismissed his government's vice-premier Vladimir Torbokov after he criticized the new Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Fradkov, complaining that he was Jewish and that there were too many Jews working in Russia's authority bodies. The Governor later confirmed that he dismissed Torbokov for his anti-Semitic attitude, which was "outright inappropriate".

On behalf of the Jewish community and personally, Rabbi Lazar thanked Governor Lapshin for his "steadfast position". "Your decision to dismiss one of your government's highest ranking officials for his anti-Semitism, irrespective of his high professionalism, has earned you great respect", said Rabbi Lazar in his letter to the Altai Governor. According to Lazar, Lapshin's changes with respect to staff politics and his strong denunciation of anti-Semitism "underlay the best traditions of the Russian intelligentsia within the Russian state system".

He also emphasized that 'zero tolerance' to nationalism, xenophobia and anti-Semitism has kept Russia a powerful multi-national country all these years. Rabbi Lazar said that he hoped the people of Altai would continue to develop harmoniously, absent of any national or religious conflict.

Chabad Chassid Strikes Oil

Tuesday, May 04, 2004

The Givat Olam company, which is partly owned by Chabad chassid Tuvia Loskin, has reported striking oil northeast of Kfar Saba at its Megged-4 site. The company reckons that there is enough oil to supply 200 million barrels, which is double the quantity that was originally estimated. The current value of the oil is around six billion dollars.

Due to the nature of the rock, Givat Olam has had to dig down as far as 20 meters below ground in order to reach the oil.

City, Chabad draft settlement proposal

Tuesday, May 04, 2004

The Board of Aldermen is on the verge of ending its four-month dispute with Beth Menachem Chabad, an orthodox Jewish synagogue which has sought a 45-space parking waiver for its Dedham Street location.

The 75-seat synagogue, which is next door to the Countryside Elementary School, sued the city following a Dec. 15, 2003 decision by the Board of Aldermen to deny a special permit which would allow them to continue to operate. Rabbi Chaim Prus accused the board of "religious bigotry" after its decision.

After months of quiet negotiations, the board and the synagogue may soon agree on a settlement plan that allows the congregation to worship with the city’s blessing. CONTINUE...

French rabbi attacked

Tuesday, May 04, 2004

A rabbi was attacked near his synagogue in the suburbs of Paris. Rabbi Chaim Mallul of the Chabad-Lubavitch synagogue in Creteil, south of the capital, was hit in the face and stomach by two men while walking to services Saturday evening with his son, the Bureau for Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism told JTA.

In another incident, a swastika and Nazi slogans were scrawled on a synagogue in northern France. Members of the tiny Jewish community in Valenciennes filed a police complaint, and security has been stepped up outside the building.

Four years of Activities on Florida's State Capitol

Tuesday, May 04, 2004

image3546.jpg
Since Rabbi Schneur & Chanie Oirechman moved to Florida's State Capitol there isn't one Jewish Senator or Representative who doesn't know about the Rebbe or Chabad.

For the past four years, in addition to bringing Yiddishkeit to over 3500 Jewish Students on Florida State University (thanks to 'The Rohr Family') and to the large Jewish community, the Shluchim are very involved with bringing Yiddishkeit to the Jewish legislators who spend several months a year in the Capitol City.

Anyone who needs Tefilin, Mezuzos or Kosher food knows that there is one place in town to get it, one phone call to the Chabad House and it's shortly there. Rabbi Oirechman remarked that since moving to Tallahassee, Chabad has a strong presence at the Capitol which helps make things easier e.g. getting Kosher food in to the state prisons which Oirechman is currently working on with Rabbi Mendy Katz from Aleph institute. After just one meeting that Oirechman had with Senator Debbie Wasserman Schultz all it took was two days and a meeting was set for the Rabbi, a representative from Aleph institute and the Jewish legislators with the department of correction secretary Mr. Bill Crosby. Kosher food in the prisons, an issue that is going on for years is about to be solved thanks to the strong presence Chabad has at the capitol.

This year, in honor of the 102nd birthday of the Rebbe, Rabbi Oirechman was invited to deliver the invocation at the Florida Senate, the House of representatives and the Florida Cabinet by invitation of Governor Jeb Bush.

Currently, Chabad is in the process of buying a property to build a new center to fill the needs of this growing community.

LIVING WITH MOSHIACH #33

Tuesday, May 04, 2004

There are those who argue that our generation--with all its problems, weaknesses, and apathy--is not fit for Moshiach. How is it possible that our generation will be fit to see the revelations of the future redemption, revelations of such magnitude that the glorious and noble generations of the past did not merit to see? Is our generation better than the preceding ones?! Actually this itself is proof that now is the time for the revelation of Moshiach, as our Sages state: "Moshiach will come b'hesech hadaas" (Lit. "in a time of forgetfulness,")--when we aren't expecting him.
(L'Chaim)

Shluchim and their families get together in Northern California

Tuesday, May 04, 2004

image3547.jpg
On Sunday, 19 Shluchim along with their Rebbetzins – the Shluchos - and their families from Northern and North-Central California gathered for an afternoon picnic, kids' day in the park and Chizuk for one another.

The gathering strengthened the already impressive Achdus they share. The group, that came from as far south as Monterey and as far north as Sonoma county, discussed future joint activities and ideas for enhancing their daily Shlichus activities.

As the children enjoyed the company of fellow Tzeirei HaShluchim, a Sicha was reviewed by Rabbi Yosef Levin of Palo Alto.

A wonderful time was had by all. “Imagine” one Shliach was heard saying, “If all Shluchim in every region did this every once in a while, just getting together, to be the family that we are!”

TODAY IS PESACH SHEINI - Second Chances

Wednesday, May 05, 2004

When you've missed the boat there's nothing you can do but wave to the passengers. If the train has already left the station, you might as well sit down and wait for the next one to arrive. There are many things in life that depend on being in the right place at the right time; if you're late, you've missed that opportunity forever.

Likewise, the Torah tells us that there are specific times for doing specific mitzvot. There is a proper time to put on tefilin, a proper time to light Shabbat candles, a proper time to eat matza, and a proper time to sit in the sukka.

The Torah's narrative about Pesach Sheini - the "Second Passover" (always on 14 Iyar), thus expresses a very radical concept in Judaism.

Right before their Exodus from Egypt, G-d commanded the Jewish people to offer the Passover sacrifice, on the 14th of Nisan. One of the requirements, however, was that a Jew had to be in a state of ritual purity. As a result, not everyone was permitted to bring an offering, and the Jews who were excluded felt terrible. "Why should we be left out?!" they demanded of Moses. They were so eager to observe the mitzva that G-d relented, granting them another opportunity to bring an offering one month later, on the 14th of Iyar.

This story reveals the unfathomable depths of the Jewish soul and the infinite power of teshuva, repentance. It teaches us that every Jew is so intimately connected to G-d that when he makes a sincere and heartfelt demand, it "forces" G-d, as it were, to open up new channels through which to send us His abundant blessings.

As the Previous Rebbe explained, the lesson of Pesach Sheini is that it is never too late to correct the past and return to G-d. It also emphasizes the power of a Jew's initiative. When a Jew cries out, from the depths of his soul and with a genuine desire to fulfill G-d's will, G-d listens to his plea and grants his request.

There is an additional message of Pesach Sheini. What, in fact, was the cause of the ritual impurity which excluded some Jews from participating in the sacrifice? The Torah states: "There were people who were defiled by contact with the dead and were unable to offer the Passover sacrifice on that day." According to one opinion in the Talmud, these Jews were involved in the mitzva of burying a dead person found on the roadside who had no known relatives to do so. Even a kohen (priest) and even a High Priest - neither of whom is normally permitted to come in contact with the dead - is obligated to defile himself by burying the dead person.

This concept applies on a spiritual plane, as well. When we encounter another person who is spiritually "lifeless" we are obligated to get involved with him, even if it takes us away from our own spiritual pursuits.

Ultimately, Pesach Sheini teaches us that we must never despair or give up on ourselves, on others, and especially in bombarding G-d with our demand that He send us Moshiach immediately.

PM apologizes for severing ties with Haredim

Wednesday, May 05, 2004

In a meeting with United Torah Judaism MKs in the Knesset on Wednesday, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said that by rejecting the plan, Likud members made "the worst strategic mistake since the state was founded."

Sharon apologized to the MKs for severing ties with the Haredi community, but both sides stressed after the meeting that coalition possibilities were not discussed.

Minister-without-Portfolio Uzi Landau convened MKs who opposed the plan in the Knesset on Wednesday. They vowed to unite to prevent Sharon from making a new attempt to pass his unilateral disengagement plan.

"The Likud members decided that they are against withdrawing unilaterally under fire and this obligates all Likud representatives, including the prime minister," Landau said.

Wednesday, May 05, 2004

Yesterday over one thousand people took part in a trade fair in a theatre in central Brussels. As many Jews were among the participants, students from the local Semicha Institute, which is run by shliach Rabbi Shmuel Pinson, set up a number of stands where people could put on Tefillin. During the day, hundreds of Jews put on Tefillin,. including some who were doing this important mitzvah for the first time.

At the meeting, they discussed the City Administration's plans to dismantle the city's century-old 'Beit Menachem' synagogue. The Vice-Mayor stressed that this decision was not prompted by anti-Semitism but by the city's reconstruction plans. Rabbi Gurevich requested that the city's oldest synagogue must remain undisturbed and promised to raise funds for its reconstruction, to make the synagogue accord with the city's new look. At the end of the meeting, Rabbi Gurevich presented the Vice-Mayor with a Passover silver dish.

While in Dushanbe, Rabbi Gurevich also met with Goib Goibov, the Chairman of the Tajikistan Committee on Religious Affairs. The official displayed familiarity with Jewish community life and said that he hoped the city's oldest synagogue would be left out of the city's reconstruction plans.

Rabbi Gurevich met with USA Ambassador to Tajikistan Richard Hoangland in Dushanbe.

The Chief Rabbi brought kosher juice and wine to Dushanbe, and the shochet from Bukhara provided kosher meat for the Shabbat Eve gathering. Rabbi Gurevich presented to the local Jewish community with five sets of Teffilin and Talits, sidur books with Russian transcriptions, 'Shulchan Aruch' in Russian and several Bukhara-themed audiotapes. He then answered numerous questions concerning prayers and Kashrut laws from local Jews.

The Rabbi's visit to Tajikistan brought great joy to the approximately 400 local community members, who today mainly comprise the elderly, disabled, and poor.

Jews of Tajikistan are hopeful that Rabbi Gurevich's visit will be able to save the city's synagogue, giving fresh impetus to the revival of the local Jewish community.

Moroccan Jewish leader Raskin dies at 71, is buried in New York

Wednesday, May 05, 2004

NEW YORK -- Rabbi Yehuda Leib Raskin, a longtime leader of Morocco's Jewish community, has died. He was 71.

Raskin died Sunday of brain cancer in Montreal, said Rabbi Zalman Shmotkin, a spokesman for the Chabad Lubavitch movement. He was buried in New York on Monday.

Raskin was born in Russia to parents who defied Stalin's rule by spreading Judaism despite repeated warnings of being jailed and executed. After World War II, the family escaped to Poland and later emigrated to Israel, where it helped found the religious community of Rishon Letzion, a Tel Aviv suburb.

Raskin also traveled to New York to study in a rabbinic seminary and later became a mentor to many American Jewish leaders.

In December 1959, Raskin married Raizel Azimov in Paris. Four months later, the couple became Lubavitch emissaries in Morocco, and their work received frequent praise from King Hassan II and his son and successor, King Mohammed VI,

Raskin is survived by his wife, six children and four siblings.

LIVING WITH MOSHIACH #34

Thursday, May 06, 2004

According to one opinion in the Talmud (Yevamot 62a), the reason for the mitzva of procreation is to hasten the coming of Moshiach: "The son of David will not come until all the souls in heaven have been born." Every time another child is born to the Jewish people, the coming of Moshiach is thereby hastened. Thus, every Jewish wedding is considered, in a sense, the beginning of the Redemption, for the couple will soon have children, and will thus hasten the coming of Moshiach. (The Journal of Halacha Vol. 4 by Rabbi H. Schachter)

Perm Holds Brit Mila for Five - From Teenagers to 72-Year Old

Thursday, May 06, 2004

PERM, Russia - The Jewish community of Perm celebrated one of most ancient Jewish rituals - circumcision. Rabbi Shaya Shafit, a guest rabbi from Moscow, performed the ceremony, which was held at the Jewish Community Center.

A professional physician, Rabbi Shafit underwent a special course in Israel to become a mohel. His activity in Russia and CIS is supported by FJC partner 'Brit Yosef Yitzhak' organization that maintains mohalim and surgical rooms around the world. To date, Rabbi Shafit has already performed about 3000 circumcisions. Though the operation is not very complicated, it is performed under local anesthetic, so that the patient feels no pain.

This week in Perm, five teenagers and adults decided to undergo Brit Mila. Among them was an eighth-grader, Vladimir, a pupil at the local Ohr Avner Chabad Day School. While he was a bit nervous about undergoing this ritual, he believes that every male Jew should undergo circumcision. His mother was also nervous but she fully supported her son's decision.

19-year old student Ilya Shoichet said that he decided to undergo the Brit Mila a long time ago and has since then been waiting for the right occasion to do this.

Traditionally performed on a boy on his eighth day of life, Jews in Russia during the Soviet years were forced to stop this and many other Jewish traditions.

Igor Ternavsky, an art director of the local puppet theater, expressed that his grandfather had wanted him to undergo circumcision in his youth; however, the boy's parents, devoted communists, were steadfastly against this idea. Igor decided to undergo the Brit as an adult. The decision was prompted by a sad event, when a he was disallowed from taking part in a funeral ceremony for his good friend, for the reason that he had not been circumcised. Thus, at the age of 57, he decided to become "a true Jew".

A 66-year old community member, Alexander, was born in 1938, when nobody would even dare to think about circumcising their son. "I feel like I have started a new life," said Alexander following the circumcision ceremony.

The oldest participant, Yakov Bryansky, is 72 years old. Born in Kiev to a well-established family, he was not circumcised in childhood. A row of tragic events in his life, including he death of his son and a car crash, finally prompted him to undergo the Brit Mila, even despite his wife's wishes.

Upon being circumcised, a man has the opportunity to take a new Jewish name. The five men circumcised in Perm chose the names Tzuriel, Benyamin, Avraham, Yakov and Michael.

Chief Rabbi of Perm Zalman Deutch, who organized the ceremony, invited a number of prominent community members to help conduct the Brit Mila - Moshe Ternavsky, Gershon Davidov, Shimon Abramov and Efraim Binyaminov.

Kabbalates

Thursday, May 06, 2004

It sounds a lot like the flavor of the month at Starbucks. “Kabbalates” however, is a hybrid that synthesizes the ancient teachings of the Kabbalah with the new age fitness craze known as Pilates and in the process brings the message of Judaism into the everyday life of the Jew.

The Kabbalates concept is the brainchild of sisters Sarah Deitsch and Devorah Kaplan. Both are Chabad emissaries who work with their rabbi-husbands on the campus of Ohio State University in Columbus and in downtown Fort Lauderdale, Florida respectively.

The sisters are actively involved in women’s programming in their communities and network almost daily to devise new and innovative educational ideas.

“The students on campus are always into what’s ‘cool’, “says Sarah Deitsch “and we’re constantly looking for Jewish programs that can tie in with the prevailing trend. Pilates is the latest exercise fad and when we offered a ten week course combining a Kabbalah class with the Pilates, it was an instant hit among students.”

Devorah Kaplan already had a Pilates instructor, Cathy Gross, as a regular student in her weekly lunch and learn class. Cathy was excited with the idea because she says that “Judaism commands us to take care of our bodies and our souls and everyone knows that Pilates can’t be done without a mind-body connection.” She also says that the Kabbalah class was so absorbing for her, she had to mentally switch into the Pilates mode. “I wanted to say to Devorah, ‘let’s just do the Kabbalah and forget the Pilates.” Another class is already under way for evenings to accommodate all the women who wish to attend.

Kaplan began her class by saying that Kabbalah cannot be properly taught in small snippets of time and that she was just ‘whetting their palates’ for more. She explained that Kabbalah reveals the connection between the different parts of the body and how they relate to one’s personal service of G-d and gave several examples. “It was a natural segue to the Pilates segment and gave everyone something profound to think about during the exercises.

Both sisters say the reason for the program’s success is that it integrates two disciplines - learning and fitness and combines them both in one hour. “It satisfies the body’s need for exercise and serves as a springboard to the soul’s need for spirituality” says Kaplan.

This past Sunday the Israel Independence Day Festival was held in Van Nuys, CA.

Despite temperatures that topped a sweltering 100-degrees, some 30,000 still showed up for the annual festival.

Chabad of California's AskMoses.com headed up by Rabbi Simcha Backman was one of the festivals most popular booths and distributed some 20,000 bottles of water with the AskMoses logo and Brocha printed on the bottle.

In addition there were a number of Chabad booths and members of Anash and Bochurim put Tefillin on with several thousand people.

Remembering Rabbi Yisroel Aryeh Leib, Z”L

Thursday, May 06, 2004

Tuesday, the 13th Iyar, was the yahrzeit of the Rebbe’s brother Rabbi Yisroel Aryeh Leib. Many Chabad Chassidim, including yeshiva students from around the world, along with their Roshei Yeshiva and mashpi’im, visited his gravesite in the northern Israeli town of Tzfas.

On the night of the yahrzeit, a grand farbrengen in Rabbi Yisroel Aryeh Leib’s memory took place in Yeshivas Tzeirei HaShluchim in Tzfas for the students of several yeshivos.

Various mashpi’im farbrenged separately with the students of each yeshiva. Rabbi Yosef Raices, rabbi of Yesod HaMaaleh, sat with the students of Yeshivas Tzeirei HaShluchim. At the same time, the students of Tomchei Tmimim in Lod farbrenged with the mashpia Rabbi Shimon Gopin, and Rabbi Yaakov Goldschmidt, mashgiach in Tomchei Tmimim, Kfar Chabad conducted the farbrengen for the students of the yeshivos in Kfar Chabad and Migdal HaEmek.

LIVING WITH MOSHIACH #35

Thursday, May 06, 2004

And whoever doesn't listen to these words, it's his responsibility, and in the future he will be judged, G-d forbid, for then it will be made clear, known and publicized concerning each person, who prepared himself for his [Moshiach's] coming and how he prepared himself, with Torah learning and good deeds, and who did not prepare himself.

LETTER TO ALL ANASH ABOUT LAG B’OMER IN CROWN HEIGHTS

Friday, May 07, 2004

Dear Anash,

No matter where you lived during the last half century – when Lag B’omer occurred on Sunday you went to the parade, there were Lag B’omer parades in, North America, South America, Eretz Yisroel, Europe, Asia, and Africa.

Now that Lag B’omer is only days away, the thought of a 21st century parade calls forth all of those exciting memories of Lag B’omers of the past.

As we march in front of 770 we will feel the presence of our Rebbe, who loves every child and continues to inspire young and old to march for unity, education, Shabbos, Ahavas Yisroel and more; to march to greet Moshiach.

We invite you to be there to participate in this year’s parade. Join the marches and be counted – we need you to march for Jews/for Eretz Yisroel/for Torah/for Achdus and for Geula. May we merit that this be the march to our final redemption – Umalkeinu B’rosheinu!

Parking: Please do not park your cars from Motzoei Shabbos midnight till Sunday midnight on:
• Eastern Parkway between Brooklyn and Albany Avenue
• Kingston Avenue
• Empire Blvd from Albany to Brooklyn Avenue.

Street Closure:
All streets from Eastern Parkway until Empire Boulevard between Albany & Brooklyn will be closed! (Except for residents, who will need ID that you live on the block.)

Coming to the event! MEN MUST come down Kingston Women MUST come down Brooklyn.

May we merit to march to greet Moshiach NOW!

PARADE TO GO ON, RAIN OR SHINE, PERMIT OR NOT

Friday, May 07, 2004

image3555.jpg
Sunday's Massive Lag B'Omer Parade & Festivities in Crown Heights is going ahead as planned albeit with some last minute seating rearrangements due to the lack of a permit that would have allowed for the main Parkway in front of 770 to be blocked off.

The parade committee would like to thank everyone who called the NYPD, progress was definitely made and it is our hope and prayer that by Sunday morning the street will be blocked off. Tracht Goot vet Zicher Zein Goot!

In order for the program to proceed on schedule and for it to be a Kiddush Hashem and Kiddush Shem Lubavitch, it is imperative that Anoshim, Noshim, VeTaf please arrive @ 10:00am so that everyone can be seated easily and for the program to start on time.

If you have family and friends in the Tri-State area please encourage them to come as well, in the spirit of "Beroiv Am Hadras Melech."

Men are asked to please walk down Kingston, Women to please come down Brooklyn.

Lag B'Omer in Denmark

Saturday, May 08, 2004

In the Danish capital Coppenhagen lag b'omer will be celebrated with a special barbeque in the city's main park.

The annual event has a very successful reputation, with hundreds of local Jews participating each year, including many who do not normally participate in Jewish programs. This year there is a particuarly festive atmosphere in Denmark at this time due to national holidays taking place just before and after lag b'omer. It is hoped that this will bring even more people to the Chabad event.

'Tzivos Hashem' Helps Celebrate Lag B' Omer in Dnepropetrovsk

Saturday, May 08, 2004

DNEPROPETROVSK, Ukraine - The international children's organization 'Tzivos Hashem' and the Ohr Avner Foundation issued a series of colorful Lag B' Omer posters featuring the ten commandments of the Torah.

The project was achieved with the guidance and supervision of Rabbi Yosef Glik, the Head of 'Tzivos Hashem' in Dnepropetrovsk, as well as Rabbi Yerachmiel Binyaminson, who is the Head of the International 'Tzivos Hashem', and Rabbi Shmuel Baron, who has broad experience in publishing children's magazines for 'Tzivos Hashem' throughout the CIS.

Jewish children from the local Ohr Avner Chabad Schools will carry these posters for everyone to see, as they walk in the Lag B' Omer parade.

In just six months of its functioning, 'Tzivos Hashem' publishing project has produced many booklets, assisting both pupils and teachers of the Ohr Avner Chabad School network. Among them are brilliant colorful comics books, a disc with slides telling the story of 'Megilat Esther', posters featuring the six days of Bereshit, the Russian translation of 'Megilat Esther'. This program has also produced the story of the Lubavitcher Rebbe in both Hebrew and Russian, and an amusing alphabet book for children of pre-school age.

Soon, 'Tzivos Hashem' plans to issue more Jewish books, including a dictionary of Jewish concepts and a siddur for first-graders.

LIVING WITH MOSHIACH #36

Saturday, May 08, 2004

The Tzemach Tzedek (Rabbi Menachem Mendel, the third Lubavitcher Rebbe) once spoke about the imminent coming of Moshiach on a day of which it is said that Moshiach cannot come. Someone asked him: "What is the meaning of this? It has been stated that at such a time he cannot come." The Tzemach Tzedek replied: "Just let him come. Once he comes, there will be answers for all problems, and this problem, too, will then be solved!"

    New congregation's Torah to be dedicated in Sunday ceremony

    Sunday, May 09, 2004

    image3556.jpg
    There's a telling scene in the 1979 Gene Wilder-Harrison Ford movie, "The Frisco Kid," that illustrates, in a scene that is both emotionally moving and perversely amusing, the significance of the Torah for the Jewish people.

    A young Polish rabbi, fresh from rabbinical school, is on his way to take charge of his first congregation: a 19th century San Francisco community that sprang up after the Gold Rush.

    Armed only with his Torah scroll, which are the first five books of the Bible, Wilder and good-natured bank robber Ford have to prove their mettle to an American Indian tribe they encounter as they traverse the wild west. continue...

    Yankel Rosenbaum's murderer getting out of jail in 3 weeks

    Sunday, May 09, 2004

    Crown Hts. Defendant Is Set for Jail Release
    NY TIMES

    In 1991, Yankel Rosenbaum, a 29-year-old Hasidic Jew, died after being stabbed by a black teenager, Lemrick Nelson Jr., as blacks attacked Jews for four days in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. The violence followed the death of a black child, Gavin Cato, who was accidentally killed by a car driven by another Hasidic man.

    Last May, Mr. Nelson was convicted in federal court of having violated Mr. Rosenbaum's civil rights by stabbing him, though the jury found that he had not caused the death of Mr. Rosenbaum, above. Mr. Nelson got the maximum 10 years in prison.

    His previous federal conviction, in 1997, had been overturned when an appeals court found judicial error in the trial. In 1992 he was acquitted of state murder charges.

    With credit for his time in detention before the state trial and after his first federal conviction, and with time off for good behavior, Mr. Nelson, 28, is scheduled for release on June 2 from the United States Penitentiary in Beaumont, Tex., the Federal Bureau of Prisons said last week.

    Charles Price, 51, who is serving nearly 12 years for violating Mr. Rosenbaum's rights by urging the crowd to attack him, is scheduled for release in 2006.

    Meanwhile, a trial is pending in a 1992 lawsuit by Mr. Rosenbaum's family charging that medical malpractice at Kings County Hospital Center contributed significantly to his death. "A lot of ingredients" are involved in the long delay, said a family lawyer, David Edelman.

    Over 2000 @ Lag B’Omer in Sydney, Australia

    Sunday, May 09, 2004

    image3560.jpg
    The streets of Bondi reverberated with the sounds of bag pipes and cheering crowds, as Sydney’s Jewish community celebrated a day of Jewish pride and unity. The traditional Lag B’Omer Day Parade, held in many Jewish centers world-wide, was coordinated here by rabbinical students of Rabbinical College of Sydney under the auspices of the Yeshivah Center - Chabad Lubavitch.

    The crowd was addressed by dignitaries and Jewish leaders including the honorable Peter Debnam, State Member for Vaucluse, the honorable Peter King, Federal Member for Wentworth and Rabbi Yossi Feldman of the Rabbinical College of Sydney.

    Well over 2000 people attended the event, which saw members of the community marching in unison alongside elaborate floats and other regalia presented by Sydney’s many Jewish youth movements, schools and synagogues.

    Hall Street was closed to traffic for the duration of the march, as the parade wound its way from the beach to Barracluff Park, where participants spilled out onto the lawn area to enjoy a carnival-filled afternoon consisting of children’s rides, community performances, traditional Aussie and Israeli food, and the lively sound of Jewish music.

    Off to Siberia

    Sunday, May 09, 2004

    Why am I dropping everything to go there?

    Hotels and mail order brides are mostly what the Internet, font of information on all and sundry, has to tell me about this remote town in iberia. Trip organizers joke with dark humor that if no one turns up to meet me at the airport, I'll certainly have something interesting to write about.

    Why, now that winter is finally easing here, am I packing up my woolens and my boots and heading back into it? Well, Samara is also home to an old Jewish community, according to Rabbi Avraham Berkowitz, executive director of the Federation of Jewish Communities of the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States). continue...

    Business is brisk at Lag Ba'omer festivities

    Sunday, May 09, 2004

    image3558.jpg
    The tomb of Shimon Bar Yochai at Moshav Meron was, as usual, too small to hold the thousands of worshipers who came to bring their troubles before the Creator at the tomb of the righteous rabbi on Lag Ba'omer, the anniversary of his death.

    ...Right after the security check, Chabad had set up their booths. A plasma screen broadcast jumpy video clips of messianic songs and sermons by the Lubavicher rebbe. Further on were booths where the few secular men present could put on phylacteries. Among the leaflets handed out this year, a whole page was devoted to Pini Gershon's amulet from the rebbe.

    With faith making inroads on the basketball court, a real rivalry has grown between the Chabadniks and the followers of Rabbi Nachman of Bratslav, distributors of the popular "na-na-nahman me'ouman" mantra, known as the nachnachs. Some of the nachnachs, who could be seen dancing ecstatically, have found a way to disparage the rival camp: "Chabadniks can't jump." If you buy a set of books from the nachnachs, you'll receive a generous blessing, read out over the PA system for all to hear....

    20,000 CELEBRATE LAG B'OMER IN CROWN HEIGHTS

    Monday, May 10, 2004

    image3559.jpg
    CROWN HEIGHTS (SNS) - Lag B’Omer 5764 in Crown Heights will go down as one of the nicest ever. From the beautiful weather in the 60’s, to the palpable feeling of excitement and joy in the air, everyone had a spectacular time.

    A massive crowd of 20,000 men, women and children from Crown Heights, Boro Park, Flatbush, Long Island, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Ohio and elsewhere from the US, Canada and beyond, gathered in front of 770 to celebrate together on the auspicious day of Lag B'Omer.

    It was a scene reminiscent of the "good ole" days, - which we will hopefully merit again very soon – colorful 12 Pesukim banners, pictures of the Rebbeim and signs adorned the front of 770 & 788 Eastern Parkway.

    Rabbi Yossi Goldstein aka “Uncle Yossi”, flew in from California special for the occasion,to be on hand and lead the children in the recitation of Shma Yisroel and “Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai...”

    12 children were honored in leading their peers in the recitation of the 12 Pesukim. Afterwards a tape of a Sicha from the Rebbe was played. Afterwards Rabbi Sholem Ber Hecht - whose father Rabbi J.J. Hecht OBM translated the Rebbe’s Sichos for close to 40 years – gave a brief synopsis in English.

    Sunday’s program included performances by the world renowned singers Avrohom Fried and Chaim Fogelman.

    15 beautiful floats with themes related to Geula & Moshiach and created by the various Yeshivos and Girls schools rolled down Eastern Parkway much to the delight of the parades participants. After the floats went by marching bands along with the thousands of children wearing special hats and holding special signs marched by 770.

    Following the parade the celebration continued as the massive crowd made their way down Kingston Avenue to Empire Blvd where dozens of rides – with up to 1 hour long lines for some - were set up and well enjoyed by the thousands of children all afternoon long.

    Rabbi Shimon Hecht served as MC for the parade.

    Sunday’s gala event was sponsored by the NCFJE & Tzivos Hashem and a great big thank you goes out to Rabbis Sholem Ber, Shea and Shimon Hecht, Rabbis Yerachmiel Benjaminson, Sholem Ber Baumgarten and Shimmy Weinbaum and to all the hard working employees and volunteers that helped make Lag B’omer 5764 the great success that it was.

    Security forces thwart suicide attack in Tel Aviv

    Monday, May 10, 2004

    Security forces said they thwarted a suicide bomb attack with the arrest of Amal Juma'a, 35, in the Askar refugee camp near Nablus on Sunday night. According to Palestinian sources, Juma'a is a hermaphrodite who also goes by the name of Ahmed, and planned a suicide-bomb attack in Tel Aviv on Monday.

    The 15-kilogram bomb she was to have used was blown up by Palestinian Authority security officials, who found it hidden inside a washing machine in a house in the camp after they were contacted by Juma'a's parents, who informed them of its location.

    Palestinian sources claimed that in the past three years Juma'a acted as a courier and transferred bombs from one terrorist cell to another. The Fatah Al-Aksa Brigades and Hamas were to have claimed joint responsibility for the attack.

    Security officials said they were unable to confirm the claims that Juma'a planned an attack in Tel Aviv and said she was still being questioned about her terrorist activities. As to her gender, Israeli security officials said that while Juma'a's appearance was extremely "masculine," they were unable to confirm the Palestinian reports that she is a hermaphrodite.

    During the same raid, security forces arrested two Fatah fugitives, one identified as Rashad al-Tek, 15, and soldiers arrested a terror suspect in a village north of Ramallah.

    In the Gaza Strip, security forces continued clearing trees and bushes on both sides of the Kissufim crossing. They also demolished several Palestinian homes on the outskirts of Khan Yunis several hundred meters from the road, which were used by terrorists.

    The IDF refused to divulge the number of houses that were destroyed but said it was in response to the shooting attack at hundreds of Jewish residents who gathered on the road Sunday night to mark a week since the murder of Tali Hatuel and her four daughters. Palestinians claimed that 11 houses were demolished.

    Bochurim make grisly discovery

    Monday, May 10, 2004

    Late Sunday night, a group of Bochurim celebrating Lag B'Omer with a BBQ on Atlantic Beach in Long Island, were shocked when they saw a body of a man wash up ashore.

    The Bochurim immediately called 911.

    When the Police came they questioned the Bochurim and afterwards took the body to the medical examiner's office.

    According to NEWSDAY, detectives are looking into the possibility that the body is one of several sailors missing when a merchant vessel from Singapore blew up off the coast of Virginia in March.

    Lag B'Omer in Madrid, Spain

    Monday, May 10, 2004

    image3563.jpg
    After weeks of joint planning, together with the local JCC, with Be'nei Akiva and Macabi Spain together, we organized a grand Lag Baomer rally together with JABAD - LUBAVITCH DE ESPANA.

    FIRST & SECOND PRIZES WERE TWO BRAND NEW SOPHISTICATED BIKES!!

    This drew the attention of all madrilenos, and brought a full house, parents & children flocked from near & far to be at the grand Lag Baomer celebration, which was held in the newly built Synagogue in the north of the city of Madrid.

    The Bikes were put on display, as the people were gathering. 6 of the '12 Pesukim' were recited word for word, Everyone gave Tsedaka, and prayed to be a winner. Booklets of the Pesukim were distributed to all.

    Mrs. Shifra Goldstein (The Shlucho to Spain) narrarated in Spanish a video of Rabi Nachum Ich Gamzu, and explained the significance of the day of Lag Baomer, and why we have all gathered here today.

    A snack was served with berochos said loudly by everyone, yarmulkas were donned and the spirit of Rabi Shimon Bar Yochai was obvious on this very auspicious day. They were told how Rabbi Shimon and son Elazar hid in a cave to learn Tora. This reminds us of the history of Spain when the Marranos had to do the same. Now, we are able to learn Tora with no disturbances, TAKE ADVANTAGE! Mrs Goldstein called out: CAN WE LIVE WITHOUT TORA? THE CHILDREN ALL SHOUTED BACK: NO!!

    Then the two bikes were raffled off, and the place was "rolling" (with the bikes). It was certainly an event that will long be remembered. A resolution was made to continue to raffle off bikes, and get more people to learn more Tora!

    Lag B'omer in Toronto

    Monday, May 10, 2004

    On the morning of lag b'omer Toronto was overcast with stormy weather to the extent that there was a doubt as to wether the parade scheduled for that afternoon would actually take place. However, the organizers of the event had faith that the Rashbi could be relied upon to save the situation.

    By the afternoon the clouds had dispersed and the sun began to shine. In the end the event, organized by the shluchim of the Center for Russian Immigrants (JRCC), was a tremendous success with people coming from all over the city to take part

    LIVING WITH MOSHIACH #37

    Monday, May 10, 2004

    The Mishna forewarns us: "On the eve of the coming of Moshiach, ...each day's curse will be heavier than that of the preceding day." What possible good could come from giving us this somber prophecy? Had the Torah not foretold this situation, it would have been so perplexing that the Jewish people would have become dispirited. But now that the Torah has told us what to expect as the era of exile finally draws to a close, Jews can take heart, and can tackle their divinely-appointed tasks with zest. (The Lubavitcher Rebbe)

    image3565.jpg
    Hundreds of people participated in the Lag Baomer parade in Johannesburg, South Africa. There were a number of floats produced by the children of the various Jewish communities displaying Jewish holidays and the Rebbe's Mivtzoim.

    The parade was led by a marching band, and concluded at a park where a carnival was held.

    There was lots of entertainment on hand, with helicopter rides, kids rides, an acrobat show and parachutists. There were also raffles held for Helicopter rides.

    Flying their Kites on the Shoreline

    Tuesday, May 11, 2004

    The gray clouds and scattered showers didn't hamper the spirit of Lag BaOmer for the Jewish community of the Connecticut Shoreline. Rabbi and Mrs. Yaffe, directors of Chabad of the Shoreline, brought together a cross-section of the community for a Barbecue and Kite flying instruction, with the Connecticut Kite flyers Association. One could see a Yale professor sitting beside a mailman, a Russian family chatting with a visitor from Israel, senior citizens, with smiles on their faces, watching the children play.

    With the Long Island Sound providing the beautiful background, the children made and flew their own kites, the men put on Tefilin, the adults learned more enjoyed a short class on the significance of the day. Though some were soaked to the bone, all left with smiles on their faces and their hearts aglow.

    IDF to remain in Zeitun until bodies returned

    Tuesday, May 11, 2004

    Israel won't negotiate for the return of the bodies of the six soldiers killed in Gaza Tuesday, and the IDF will remain in the Zeitun neighborhood where they were slain until their body parts are handed over, the security cabinet decided Tuesday evening.

    Prime Minister Ariel Sharon convened the security cabinet to discuss the killing of the six soldiers in Gaza. No operative decisions were made and no official communique was issued after the hour-long meeting. One senior diplomatic official said the forum was not convened to make any new operative decisions, but rather to give the ministers intelligence information concerning the situation in Gaza and to show solidarity both with the soldiers operating there and with the families of the soldiers whose bodies were desecrated.

    Finance Minister Binyamin Netanyahu reportedly said at the meeting that, rather than conducting negotiations for a return of the body parts, Israel should increase pressure on Gaza, cut off the water and electricity supply to the area, and set up roadblocks that would effectively divide the region until the Palestinians ask to return the bodies.

    Netanyahu also reportedly said the families of the slain soldiers should be asked for permission to distribute abroad the grisly footage of the Palestinians desecrating the bodies, so the world will have a clear picture of the "monsters we are dealing with."

    Odessa Celebrates Two New Torah Scrolls on Lag B'Omer

    Tuesday, May 11, 2004

    ODESSA, Ukraine - For the third year in a row, Jews of Ukraine have enjoyed joint parades between communities of the region, organized by the South-Ukrainian Association of Jewish Communities. Previously held in Nikolayev and Kherson, this year the festive event took place in Odessa. Jewish schoolchildren and adult community members joined in a procession through the city's central streets, demonstrating the unity of the Jewish people.

    This year's parade was unforgettable, not only because of Lag B'Omer, but also because of another joyous occasion - the bringing of two new Torah scrolls into the 'Shomrei Shabos' Synagogue.

    The Chief Rabbi of Odessa and Southern Ukraine, Avraham Wolf initiated the writing of the new scrolls. The Chairman of the 'Privdenny' Bank, Vadim Morokhovsky, sponsored the first scroll. The second scroll was made possible through the sponsorship of several local businessmen in memory of Grigory Burban, who had died during the 'Nord-Ost' hostage-taking in Moscow.

    The hall of the 'Tomchei Tmimim' Yeshiva, which hosted the start of the festive event, was full of local donors and community members wanting to write a letter in the new scrolls. Once the scrolls were completed, they were carried from the yeshiva to the synagogue.

    The celebration continued beside the synagogue, where the synagogue's other scrolls were brought out too. The sponsors of these scrolls had the honor of bringing them into the synagogue, where they passed them the rabbis of Kherson, Nikolayev and Belgorod-Dnestrovsky. Then began the most cheerful part of the celebration - dances with the Torah.

    After this, participants proceeded to the Musical Comedy Theater, which hosted a concert featuring the 'Pirchei Ukraine Boys' Choir.

    Jews of Odessa, who witnessed the joy of bringing new Torah scrolls into the synagogue for the first time in 90 years, will retain the joy of the Torah in their hearts for a long time to come.

    Utah’s Jews unite in celebrating their heritage

    Tuesday, May 11, 2004

    For Utah's estimated 5,000 Jews, living in such a predominately Mormon state can be isolating and frustrating at times.

    To help unite Jews and teach them about their heritage, Sharonne Zippel and her husband moved to Salt Lake City 12 years ago from Toronto and started the Chabad Lubavitch of Utah.

    "There are some Jews who leave heavily populated Jewish communities to escape" the religious influence, she said. "But very few escape Judaism, and, actually once they feel like such a minority they participate more than they did in their old communities." CONTINUE...

    LIVING WITH MOSHIACH #38

    Tuesday, May 11, 2004

    Before dawn comes, the darkness of night thickens, and it is when daybreak is imminent that a heavy slumber descends upon one. It is then that one needs to gather strength, so that one will not fall asleep. The light [of the Messianic Era] is about to come, thank G-d; daybreak is beginning. Now is therefore the time when we should invest every effort and exertion to ensure that we are not overtaken by sleep. (Rabbi Yosef Yitzchok Schneersohn in Likkutei Diburim)

    Over 350 @ Lag B'Omer in Teaneck, NJ

    Tuesday, May 11, 2004

    image3570.jpg
    Over 350 people came together from all over Teaneck, Bergenfield, Englewood and the surrounding areas to celebrate Lag B'Omer at the Chabad House in Teaneck, NJ.

    There was a family BBQ picnic on the lawn and playground at the Chabad House, together with festive live music and the very popular cotton candy machine. HaBachur HaTomim Yona Heidings managed the cotton candy machine and estimated that he made over 500 cotton candies throughout the day.

    The children and adults were entertained my "The Amazing Magical Margo" who put on a spectacular performance that held over 150 children in amazement for over an hour. Although rain was in the forecast, the weather was sunny and breezy and mid 60's.

    The shliach in Teaneck, Rabbi Ephraim Simon, thanked all of his incredible volunteers, especially Mr. Shneur Garb who manned the grill for over 3 hours for cooking the hotdogs and hamburgers that were in constant demand.

    The crowd of people varied in background and age with most of the 350+ crowd being made up of young families with children, however Teaneck's oldest Jewish resident was on hand to partake as well. The air was imbued with Ahavas Yisroel and achdus and was a tremendous Kiddush Lubavitch.

    A hippie-style invitation convinced over 20 UMass students to skip the Jewish Student Union's Spring Dance and participate in a barbecue and bonfire party Motzei Shabbos.

    Sunday's events were geared more for the local families. The fun began in the late afternoon with an upshernish, and continued until early evening, with a moon-bounce, barbecue, music and more for over 40 members of the community.

    Chabad Emissaries present at ceremony honoring Chairman of World Jewish Congress

    Wednesday, May 12, 2004

    image3574.jpg
    Dr. Israel Singer, Chairman of the executive committee of the WJC was recently honored by France with one of its most prestigious awards; the "Legion de Honor".

    Dr. Singer is at the forefront of fighting anti-Semitism in Europe and many other important projects and activities concerning the Jewish community; specifically the negotiations with Germany, Switzerland and others, concerning restitution for the Shoa.

    French President, Jacques Chirac, decided to bestow the award on Dr. Singer to show his appreciation and admiration for the work being done by Dr. Singer and the WJC.

    The award was presented at a prestigious hotel located near the "Elysee Palace" and attended by many Jewish and non Jewish dignitaries.

    Present at the ceremony were Rabbi Yossef Y. Gorodetsky and Rabbi Reuven Matusof of the Lubavitch European Bureau who were personally invited by Dr. Singer. This follows the warm relationship between Lubavitch in Europe, the WJC and the European Jewish Congress and its Secretary General Mr. Serge Cwajgenbaum.

    Dr. Singer, who for many years lived in Crown Heights, met the Rebbe on many occasions and received many blessings for his work on behalf of the Jewish community.

    Bulgari, Leviev in diamond venture

    Wednesday, May 12, 2004

    ROME -- Bulgari SpA and Leviev Group, the world's largest producer of cut diamonds, announced a joint venture agreement Wednesday designed to boost the Italian jeweler's diamond supply.

    The joint venture will be based in Switzerland. Bulgari and Leviev subsidiaries will each own 50 percent of the company, Bulgari said in a statement.

    The new venture appeared to be partly in response to a joint venture between De Beers, the giant miner and marketer of diamonds, and Paris-based luxury goods giant LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton.

    "I am very satisfied to have ventured with the Leviev Group that I believe to be the most professional, powerful and international company in the diamond industry," Bulgari Chief Executive Francesco Trapani said in a statement.

    Rome-based Bulgari drew about 40 percent of its 760 million euros ($854 million) revenue last year from jewelry sales.

    Leviev Group, owned by Russian diamond tycoon Lev Leviev, has annual sales of more than $2.5 billion. The group has cutting facilities in Russia and other former Soviet states, Israel, the United States and elsewhere. It works its own diamond mines in several countries including Angola, Namibia, Russia and elsewhere.

    Five soldiers killed by 2nd mine in Gaza

    Wednesday, May 12, 2004

    As the nation prepared to bury the six soldiers killed in the Zeitun neighborhood of Gaza City on Tuesday morning, five soldiers were killed and three wounded when an armored personnel carrier containing explosives was hit by anti-tank rocket in the Philadelphia Corridor in the southern Gaza Strip.

    The identities of the soldiers had not been released by press time.

    The families of the soldiers have been notified.

    An IDF convoy consisting of a D9 bulldozer and two APCs was on operational duty to detect tunnels dug by Palestinians deep underneath the ground to smuggle arms to terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip.

    An explosive device exploded under the D9 lightly wounding a soldier. The anti-tank missile was fired at the APC as it approached the scene to assist the wounded soldier.

    The force of the blast scattered parts of the armored carrier over a 400-meter radius into the town of Rafah.

    The soldiers, all members of a combined engineering and combat force, were on a routine operation to detect tunnels used to smuggle weapons to the terrorist organizations and blow them up.

    At the time of the attack, some of the soldiers were standing outside several armored vehicles and some were inside the APC when it was hit, detonating the more than 100 kilos of explosives inside.

    At first, it was thought the APC had driven over a powerful mine, but after several hours it became apparent that an anti-tank rocket had hit the vehicle.

    The incident occurred close to the Termit outpost, located nearby downtown Rafah.

    Palestinian sources quoted on ynet report 10 Palestinians - mostly children - were also wounded in the incident from shrapnel and from gunfire from Israeli helicopters flying overhead. Army reports claim the helicopters had fired into crowds as they began trying to collect pieces of the exploded carrier.

    "It is very similar to what happened in Zeitun," senior security officials said.

    In response to the recent events, Israel will embark on a rolling sequence of operations in the air and on the ground against the terrorist infrastructure in the Gaza Strip. "We are not talking about an operation similar to Operation Defensive Shield, but a series of ongoing operations, not just pinpoint ones to destroy the terrorist infrastructure," a security official said following a emergency session convened by Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz, senior IDF officers, and security officials to assess the situation.

    The three lightly wounded soldiers, all members of the Gaza division's engineering battalion, were taken to Soroka Hospital in Beersheba.

    Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the attack. A number of Palestinians on the outskirts of Rafah were wounded by the force of the blast. As others ran to grab parts of the APC, the army dispatched a large force of troops, tanks, APCs, and armored bulldozers to prevent the snatching of soldiers' remains and parts of the APC.

    Helicopter gunships flew overhead and fired missiles to deter gunmen and distance them from the area.

    Late Wednesday night, troops had set up positions inside Rafah and isolated the perimeter where the debris and body parts were believed to have been scattered as others attempted to extricate the remains.

    Meanwhile, troops were placed on high alert in the northern Gaza Strip and security officers of settlements in the area were informed of warnings of attempts to infiltrate a settlement.

    The Philadelphia Route is a narrow 50-meter-wide strip that runs between Palestinian Rafah and Egyptian Rafah. Israel retained control of the strip under the Oslo Accords.

    Palestinian terrorists frequently attempt to smuggle arms from Egypt into the Gaza Strip using underground tunnels dug deep under the Philadelphia Route.

    Orthodox Boxer Says Sabbath is more Important than Boxing

    Wednesday, May 12, 2004

    (IsraelNN.com) For Dimity Salita, boxing is everything, well almost. Dimitry arrived in New York City from his native Odessa in 1991, at the age of nine. Over time, he became aware of his Jewish roots and slowly began practicing various aspects of his religion. Today, he is a Sabbath observant Jew and a boxer. He explains that he does not see any contradiction, adding that “nothing is more important than the Sabbath”.

    Dimitry is very careful that when he books fights. There is a stipulation that he will not fight on the Sabbath or holidays. He has a fight coming up in a number of weeks in New Jersey, on a Saturday night. The contract states he will not step into the ring before 20:30, after the Sabbath, adding a clause that even if fights scheduled ahead of him are over early, the fans will have to wait until 20:30.

    The proud welterweight has a 17-0 record, and has big plans to move towards a state and eventually US title in his division.

    In the upcoming fight, sponsors have rented twenty rooms in the Howard Johnson Hotel in Atlantic City and are calling on interested persons to come spend a Sabbath with Dimitry under the guidance of Habad Rabbi Shmuel Rappaport who is taking care of arrangements. After the Sabbath, guests can watch Dimitry box

    Parade and Bonfire Highlight Lag B' Omer in Zhitomir

    Wednesday, May 12, 2004

    image3577.jpg
    ZHITOMIR, Ukraine - Despite the heavy downpour of rain and hail, the annual Lag B' Omer parade set off from the Synagogue on time. Since Lag B' Omer coincided with Victory Day this year, the parade had to be downscaled and the 300 participants, led by four cars and carrying posters displaying various mitzvot, proceeded to the local theater with local police on hand to ensure everyone's security.

    At the theater, everyone boarded buses and continued the parade with a chain of slowly moving vehicles. Participants made their way through the city and to the new Jewish educational complex situated near the river on the city's outskirts. The rain and hail fortunately gave way to a sunny blue sky, permitting the remainder of the program to take place.

    In the school's amphitheater, everyone gathered for a performance by the Ohr Avner Chabad School Choir and a play by the active members of the Jewish community. Participants listened to the 12 Pesukim and Chief Rabbi of Zhitomir Shlomo Wilhelm spoke to the large crowd.

    Following the meeting, a celebration took place, where the children tried their luck at numerous games and contests. Rabbi Wilhelm and Rabbi Zalman Bukiet, the Director of the educational complex, lit a huge bonfire once it became dark, complemented by fireworks and traditional Lag B' Omer songs.

    The evening ended with a raffle and dozens of prizes. The children's happy faces were a testimony to the program's success.

    “Stand Ready & United” - Anash worldwide join together

    Wednesday, May 12, 2004

    Following the Rebbe’s call of “Imdu Hochein Kulchem”-“Stand Ready & United”, close to 30 Shluchim from major Anash communities across North and South America, joined in a conference call last Thursday night to discuss ideas for Hachonos to Gimmel Tammuz. Three different suggestions were mentioned, as ways for every single man and woman of the global Anash family to join together to prepare ourselves properly as we refresh and deepen our commitment the Rebbe and the Shlichus he gave each and every one of us to complete our mission and bring the Geula now.

    Rabbi Sholom Lipskar of the Shul of Bal Harbor spoke about the Shlichus the Rebbe gave every Chossid, and spoke about every person undertaking to reach at least ten Yidden with the mitzvos of Teffilin or Neshek. This would also serve as a way of helping them identify with the Rebbe, and the Rebbe’s constant reminder that every Mitzva joins to the mivtza hoikri of bringing Moshiach.

    Rabbi Leibel Schapiro from Miami explained the unique value and many different qualities of intensifying our commitment to the Rebbe’s Horo’oh, the daily study of Rambam as a way of being conscious of our connection to the Rebbe on a daily basis.

    Rabbi Tzvi Greenblatt of BuenOs Aires stressed the vital need that once a week a special Shiur should be held with the attendance of every single member of the extended Anash Community in Sichos of the Rebbe B’Geula U’Moshiach. This would give an opportunity to bring depth and warmth into our bond to the Rebbe, and will be the best preparation that long before Gimmel Tammuz we will be reunited with the Rebbe through the Geula Shleima now.

    Following these three suggestions, an open discussion began as to how best share these three ideas in a way that it can reach each and every one. The Hachloto was to prepare materials for each of these three suggestions and then distribute them to all of the Anash communities. In addition, the material will be made available on the web, for easy access as well as to share updates on each communities undertaking and progress.

    A team of Kollel Yungeleit is working together with the Shluchim collecting and preparing the materials and the outline for the program appropriately named “Stand Ready & United.” The 30-day program will begin on Sunday the 3rd of Sivan.

    On Shabbos Parshas Bamidbar, the 2nd of Sivan, every participating community will have the opportunity to host a guest Farbrenger to share inspiration and encouragement as we begin a month of intense learning and activity.

    Details will follow soon on the list of places and guest speakers for next Shabbos.

    Hachnosas Sefer Torah @ Beis Menachem Lubavitch D’Boro Park

    Thursday, May 13, 2004

    image3579.jpg
    Men, women and children numbering in the hundreds assembled this past Lag B'omer to give honor to the Torah. They participated in the joyous celebration of a siyum Sefer Torah, sponsored by the Mispallim of Bais Menachem Lubavitch of Boro Park.

    Bais Menachem, founded over eight years ago, is today a vibrant Kehilla of close to a hundred families, K”Y. Just over two years ago they purchased the Belzer Shul at 4814 16 Ave. and established themselves at the crossroads of the community. In its new home, the Shul has developed into a Mokom Torah, Tefilla, and Gemillas Chasadim and under the able leadership of Harav Leibel Altein noted author of Chasidus Mevueres, continues to invigorate and stimulate all that enter.

    To alleviate the large burden of debt remaining from the purchase of the new building, a major campaign was undertaken. An enormously positive response from sponsors, members as well as friends and supporters of the Kehilla, assured that a significant sum would remain after paying for the Sefer Tora in order to minimize the outstanding debt. This campaign enabled the establishment of the new Shul, and additionally, allowed the donors to fulfill the Lubavitcher Rebbe's directive for all Jews to participate in the writing of a Sefer Torah. It must be said that with the active participation of many, and in particular due to the tireless work of R' Moshe Silver and R' Mechel Karczag, the effort, B"H, met with major success.

    The final letters of the Sefer Torah were completed at the home of the noted Askan, R’ Yaakov Yechiel Strasser, who sponsored the day's festivities Le’iylu Nishmas his father, Harav Chaim Yehuda Strasser, Z"L. Harav Strasser Z"L a direct descendent of the Chasam Sofer ZT”l was for many years the Rav of the Ksav Sofer Shul in Crown Heights and served as the Menahal of the Viener Yeshiva and Yeshivas Chasan Sofer, he is remembered by many of his talmidim for his warm smile and kind words, encouraging them in the way of Torah. Living in Crown Heights his son R’ Yankel spent much time in and around Lubavitch world headquarters at 770, and has been closely connected to Chabad and a supporter of the Rebbe's activities for many years.

    The Tahalucho then commenced, a beautiful rolling Chupah, bedecked with flowers, accompanied by Kehilla members, families, and guests. The large group set out flanked by a mass of children, dressed in Shabbos attire. The older children carried aloft fiery torches while the younger children waved colorful flags. The moving scene progressed through the streets of Boro Park, the crowd swelling as it moved towards its destination. As they made their way down 17th Avenue and then down 48th Street, the intensity and emotion continued to increase, as everyone became caught up in the emotion and fervor of the special feeling of Simcha of watching the hachnosa of a new Sefer Torah.

    Adding to the spirit of the occasion, a musician performed spirited Chabad and Lag B’omer nigunim as young and old alike accompanied the music with singing and dancing. As is the minhag, all received the honor of carrying the Sefer Torah as the crowd made its way towards the Shul.

    : Harav Shlomo Gross, Belzer Dayan; Harav Menashe Klein, Ungvar Rav; Nadvoner Rebbe Rav Shlomo Leifer; Mader Rav; Harav Yosef Weinberg, author of Shiurim BeSefer HaTanya; Harav Gavriel Tzinner; Harav Binyomin Wulliger; Harav Yisroel Eichler, Boyaner Rav; Harav Chaim Leib Katz, Sederheli Rav; Harav Yakov Rubin, Bristovitzer Rav; Harav Yehudah Krinski of the Secretariat of the Lubavitcher Rebbe; Harav Avraham Rosenfeld, Rav of the Tzemech Tzedek Shul of Boro Park; the noted Mashpia Harav Yoel Kahan; Roshei Yeshiva and Mashpiam of Yeshiva Oholei Torah, Harav Avraham Garlitzky, Harav Ephraim Pikarski, Harav Yisroel Friedman; Harav Sholom Charitonov; Harav Levi Gorelik, of the Rabbinical Board of the OK Laboratories; Harav Tzodek Shaingarten; Harav Avraham Sheiner.

    As the procession turned onto 16th Avenue and approached the Shul, the emotion reached a crescendo. All the Sifrei Torah were removed from the Aron Kodesh and brought out into the street, as Sixteenth Avenue was cordoned off in order to greet and be M'kabel Ponim the new Sefer. The huge crowd, now filling the Avenue from 48th to 49th Streets, began dancing around the Sifrei Torah. All traffic came to a halt as all present danced with unabashed fire and passion, revealing their innate love of Torah and Hashem. A truly great Kiddush Sheim Shamayim was manifested.

    The honor of carrying the Sefer Torah into the Shul for the first time was reserved for R’ Aryeh Friedman. The Friedman family from Italy made this contribution Leiluy Nishmas their father R’ Sholom Dober Ben Harav Yeshaia Z’l. R’ Sholom Dober Friedman was a renowned Lubavitch Chossid, a Holocaust survivor and a partisan he settled in Italy in 1965. He quickly became a pioneer of Tzedaka and Chesed worldwide During the Seudas Mitzvah, R’ Aryeh spoke of his father’s unrivaled Hachnosos Orchim, extending to anyone and everyone in need. He also recounted tales of tremendous Mesiras Nefesh in building Mikvoas and Mosdos Hakoidesh in the years following the war.

    . Once inside, the mood, once festive, turned exuberant as the hakofos began. The previous Lubavitcher Rebbe, in one of his letters, details the manner in which a proper Hachnosos Sefer Torah should be conducted. In addition to stressing the need for maximum publicity and the participation of all those living in the surrounding neighborhood, he states that, Hakofos, with the accompanying full ceremony should follow, adding an eighth hakafoh in order to differentiate between these hakofos and regular hakofos on Simchas Torah. In keeping with this minhag, the Gabboim began honoring various dignitaries and attendees with Atoh Horesa. Upon its conclusion, the dancing and hakofos began and lasted for well over an hour.

    With Hakofos concluded, the assembled made their way down the block to the Seudas Mitzvah held at the Kahal Chasidim hall. During the meal, R’ Leibel Altein, Mashpia and Manhig Ruchni of the Kehilla, spoke of the imperative to translate the outpouring of Simcha into practical action, that being the increase in Shiruim of Torah, both Nigleh and Chassidus. Harav Hagoan Rav Yitzchok Reitport, eminent Morah Horoah and author of Bidvar Melech and Toras Yitzchok, echoed that sentiment. He remarked that there is a Halacha that one may sell a Sefer Torah in order to raise funds for Limud HaTorah. He concluded that it is clear that the effect of a joyous day such as this must be the strengthening of Limud HaTorah.

    As the Seuda drew to a close, the Kehilla could reflect on the true import of the events that had transpired. The day marked the culmination of thousands of man hours of work to bring this dream of a permanent home for this Chabad Kehilla in Boro Park to fruition. And the memories of experiencing the Simcha Shel Mitzvah of writing and dedicating this Sefer Torah would be deeply engraved on all those that participated and remain with them forever.

    Streets of Stamford Hill come to a stop

    Thursday, May 13, 2004

    image3580.jpg
    After a week of rain and hailstones, the sun shone in London on Sunday, but nowhere brighter than in Stamford Hill, London N16.

    In an unparalleled display of unity, close to 3,000 men, women and children from every section of the Jewish community from all over London, South East England and beyond, assembled and lined the streets surrounding the headquarters of the Lubavitch Foundation to participate in a Lag B'Omer Parade organised by Rabbi Yossi Simon of Tzivos Hashem Craft Workshops.

    In the presence of many chosheva Rabbonim and Dayonim from various places, as well as councilors and the Mayor of Hackney, Mr Speaker Cllr. Abdul Mulla, boys and girls from different communities led the recitation of the 12 pesukim and mamorei chazzal, and then the Parade started in earnest. The MC for the event was Rabbi Nissan Dovid Dubov.

    Led by a boys' marching band and innovative floats depicting the message of Lag B'Omer, hundreds of children displaying flags and posters marched in a procession to Springfield Park where a giant funfair had been arranged.

    There, for the whole afternoon "all the fun of the fair" was enjoyed by some 1,000 families.

    Even the few minor rain spells failed to interrupt a day that will live for a long time in the memory of the happy children and parents who were there.

    The day was a true kiddush Hashem. Mr Cohen of Stamford Hill, said,"It has been many years, since I have seen Lubavitch House so alive and bright, as it was this Lag B'Omer, watching everyone from the Hanholo, the parents, the spectators, and all the children with smiles on their faces." Everyone was proud to march and be a part of Lag B'omer 5764.

    Lag B'Omer Captures Happy Jewish Hearts Throughout Former Soviet Union

    Thursday, May 13, 2004

    In the 426 member communities of the Federation of Jewish Communities of the CIS and Baltic Countries, Jews of the Former Soviet Union have just celebrated one of the merriest Jewish holidays of the year - Lag B'Omer. In large and small communities alike, many Jews celebrated this Jewish holiday for the first time this year, drawing those back to the Jewish fold who were previously alienated from their Jewish heritage.

    Regardless of where they occurred, Lag B'Omer parades and festivities have helped to bridge the gap between generations and members of Jewish communities themselves, allowing them a richer Jewish life today. Veterans and elders were involved more than ever before in the celebrations, especially since the Jewish holiday coincided with another well-celebrated holiday of significance to Jews of the Former Soviet Union - Victory Day. continue...

    Loved Ones Don't Die, They Pass On

    Thursday, May 13, 2004

    image1322.jpg
    A few months ago I flew from Long Beach, California to Brooklyn, New York. It was a long, sad, and lonely trip. My mother was turning 82 years and was looking forward to a special birthday when tragedy struck. A fire broke out in her home. Quickly, her life was taken by fire and smoke. No good-byes or time to prepare for closure, just a cruel death I thought.

    Our immediate family of five sons and four daughters gathered at her graveside. As her body was lowered into the burial plot we realized the finality of death. Seeing our mother, loved by all of us, being covered with earth was almost too much to bear. No more Mother's Day or birthdays. continue...
