CHABAD SUPPORTS TERROR VICTIMS IN NETANYA

Wednesday, Oct 08, 2003

The City of Netanya, a frequent terrorist target during the three years of the Oslo War, co-sponsored a warm and happy get-together for 400 of its terrorist survivors last week. "An evening like this gives us the hope and strength to carry on," said policeman David Chashai, who was gravely wounded in a car-bomb attack at the Beit Lid junction. The event, held in the Carmel Hotel, was hosted by Netanya Mayor Miriam Fierberg, Chabad's Terror Victims Project (CTVP), and Chabad House Netanya.

Four hundred terror survivors, including many from the Pesach Seder massacre at Netanya's Park Hotel a year and a half ago, came to bask in the loving atmosphere. Over the last three years, Netanya has suffered 14 terror attacks, buried 42 residents, and seen hundreds wounded. Responding to the needs of terror victims is a top priority in the municipality, and Mayor Feirberg appointed Chana Chakak to deal solely with helping terror victims.

"Netanya and Chabad work hand-in-hand to offer comfort and support to terror victims," the mayor said. "We thank Rabbis Menachem Wolpa and Tzvi Wilhelm, directors of the Chabad Houses in Netanya, whose dedicated volunteers, like Netanya's devoted public servants, work to bring smiles to the faces of the families."

Among the survivors were Zohar and Sha'ul Evyatar and their 18-month-old son Maayan, whose stroller was blown to pieces at Cafe London six months ago, yet all three narrowly survived. El'ad Ben-Aruya, 9, and his sister Sheri, 21, were also at the special event; their father, Shimon, was killed in the Seder night massacre, while Sheri was in intensive care for months after the attack and is still not fully recovered.

"Many of you are walking miracles," Rabbi Wolpa told the crowd, which danced and clapped to cheerful Hassidic music between remarks from the speakers. "And so many others of you embody the miracle of carrying on with life despite the sadness and pain of your losses." Throughout the year, CTVP provides financial, material, emotional, psychological and spiritual support to terror victims, their families and the bereaved. Because of their heightened vulnerability over the High Holidays and Sukkot, CTVP initiated a countrywide campaign to visit each of the 1,400 families with whom the members and volunteers of the 230 Chabad Houses across Israel are personally in touch. This includes delivering gift packages as well as giving money, clothes, food and other necessities to these families, who are under tremendous financial and emotional strain. The packages include greetings from youngsters in Austria, France, Guatemala and the United States, a s wel l as from 1,000 Israeli schoolchildren. "Each family we visit is so grateful," said one of the organizers, "not only for the gifts and the cards, but for the strength and the personal attention [we provide]."

Suicide bomber wounds two soldiers at Army base

Thursday, Oct 09, 2003

A suicide bomber blew himself up, possibly accidentally, at an IDF roadblock Thursday near Tulkarm wounding two soldiers. A Palestinian also was injured. Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade claimed responsibility.

The incident took place at the Misila roadblock near where permits are handed out for entering Israel.

One soldier received serious injuries and was taken to Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikva. The other's injuries were reported as light.

The suicide bombing came after a high security alert had been called this morning for the Hadera and Wadi Ara regions, and all cars were being checked.

Early reports said the bomber might have been a woman, but that has since been discounted.

Military sources said it was not sure if the bomber was planning to get through the roadblock to stage an attack in Israel or had gone there specifically.

Lithuania's Second Wind

Thursday, Oct 09, 2003

Last week, one hundred years since the Vilnius Choral synagogue first opened its doors on Rosh Hashana 1903, six hundred and fifty Jews poured into this magnificent sanctuary—the only remaining and functioning synagogue in all of Vilna—to hear the sounding of the shofar. An old Torah-scroll, recently discovered in a local antique shop, was restored and used for the occasion after a grand welcoming for the Torah several days before Rosh Hashana.

The last time hundreds of Jews prayed together in the synagogue for Rosh Hashana services, Vilna was a bastion of Jewish activity--its yeshivas, synagogues and study halls teeming with people. But that was more than 60 years ago, and the forces that conspired to destroy Jewish life here as elsewhere, emptied this synagogue of all Jewish prayer, leaving it desolate for decades.

The timing was propitious, observed Rabbi Sholom Ber Krinsky, Chief Rabbi of Lithuania, and Chabad representative here since 1992. “On the eve of Rosh Hashana, this community was granted a new lease on life, reunited with an old Torah scroll, in the walls of this great synagogue once more.”

He's the sound man for the high holy days

Thursday, Oct 09, 2003

WARWICK, RI - The Shofar Man is hard at work, his power drill tearing into the ram's horn, and he's cracking jokes as he turns the bony sheath into a musical instrument.

"You can damage a shofar easily," Rabbi Yossi Laufer says, grabbing a different drill bit to work deeper. "But sho-far, so good."

Finished, he picks up the horn, and peers through the mouthpiece.

"It's very important that you make your shofar 'holy,' " he quips.

Monday night, the peculiar sound of the shofar pronounced "chauffeur" rang out in temples through the area. continue...

Pasta and Puerto Rico

Sunday, Oct 12, 2003

It’s hard to believe that a Chabad House in Puerto Rico—an island where no kosher meat, chicken, or dairy products are produced—can offer a kosher, gourmet menu of freshly prepared and beautifully packaged meals to any tourist who wants it.

A Chabad House in the restaurant business? Hardly.

Yet, when Mrs. Rochi Zarchi and her husband Rabbi Mendel Zarchi—Chabad representatives to this tropical island—moved here four years ago, they were quickly inundated with calls from many business people and tourists asking about kosher food. continue...

Jews celebrate Sukkot with a view to the sky

Sunday, Oct 12, 2003

MONROE — A 16-by-20-foot sukkah, a hut for the celebration of the joyful Jewish holiday Sukkot, is being built this week by Rabbi Eliezer Zaklikovsky of the Chabad Jewish Center of Monroe.

Meanwhile at Congregation Etz Chaim-Monroe Township Jewish Center, 11 Cornell Ave., the children will be working on a sukkah of their own.

The temporary structures, which symbolize the post-Exodus period when the Jewish people, having escaped from Egypt, wandered in the wilderness and lived in huts, will be the sites of celebratory parties.

Congregation Etz Chaim will have tailgate parties and a touch football game following 9:30 a.m. Sunday classes.

Harriet Katz, center president, said the game will have children and adults participating as players and cheerleaders as part of the joyful holiday. The tailgating will include a kosher barbecue menu.

"Even Rabbi Ben Levy's dog, Bagel the Beagle, takes part in the game," Ms. Katz said.

The Chabad Jewish Center will have a Sukkot feast and housewarming from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday at 264 Gravel Hill Road near Gravel Hill's juncture with Union Valley Road.

The sukkah also will be open throughout the week.

Rabbi Zaklikovsky said Sukkot is a happy time following the solemn High Holy Days of Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year, and Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.

"Sukkot is an exciting time, a time for music, singing and dancing and eating," the rabbi said.

He said the holiday begins at sundown today (Friday) and will continue through Oct. 16. Rabbi Zaklikovsky said everyone is welcome.

"Being in one hut under G-d's heaven has a unifying effect," he said.

The rabbi said it will take two to three days to build the hut, which is supposed to be modest, but sturdy enough to withstand a stiff breeze. The roof of the sukkah is supposed to be open enough to view the sky from inside.

"I've been building a sukkah every year for some 30 years. I used to make them with my father and grandfather," he said.

Rabbi Zaklikovsky said the construction of the sukkah is a community effort. "There will be other people helping," he said. He said the hut and area around it will have electric lights.

"I hope families and individuals will feel free to stop by at any time to help us celebrate, to meet the rabbi and his family and to meet other members of the community," Rabbi Zaklikovsky said.

Those wishing more information about the events should call the Chabad Jewish Center of Monroe at (609) 655-2200 or Congregation Etz Chaim-Monroe Township Jewish Center at (732) 251-1119.

FIRST DAYS SUKKOS 5764 IN CROWN HEIGHTS

Monday, Oct 13, 2003

image770.jpg
B"H the weather on the first days Sukkos with the exception of some heavy rain on the second day in the morning was very nice.

Simchas Bais Hashoayva in the streets of Crown Heights went on throughout the night. In addition there were also many private farbrengens that were held in neighborhood Sukkahs.

On the second day of Yom tov, hundreds of Tmimim & Yungeleit went on Mivtza Lulav to over 200 locations all over the city. Special thanks to Noochie Gross and Menachem Gerlitzky for coordinating the Mivtzoim.

Hatzoloh was the first on scene, followed by dozens of fire trucks, police cars, and emergency service units from the NYPD.

Another Miracle In Gaza

Monday, Oct 13, 2003

A home in the Jewish Gaza community of Kfar Darom, just north of the Gush Katif bloc, sustained a direct hit from a Palestinian-fired mortar shell late this afternoon. The roof was damaged only slightly, as the shell did not explode, and no one was hurt. Yesterday morning, too, a shell hit a tree in the town, and again no one was hurt.

Asher Mivtzari, spokesman for Kfar Darom, told Arutz-7's Yosef Meiri, "We are just now on the way to Netzer Hazani, in Gush Katif, for our annual local Sukkot celebration. Just two days ago, one of many shells fired in their direction hit a home there and caused great damage, but miraculously hurt no one. We will not let the terrorists put a stop to our holiday joy."

Among other attacks in Gaza this morning, Arabs threw three grenades at an IDF force on the Israeli-Egyptian border near Rafiach; no one was hurt.

Halacha of the Day -- Chol Hamoed (1)

Monday, Oct 13, 2003

Adapted from Chol HaMoed Kehilchoso by Rabbi Yekusiel Farkas, Chapter 1

Just as one is required to be in a state of Simcha on the Yom Tov days, likewise during Chol HaMoed one should be in a state of Simcha and good heart. This applies to all; men, women and children.

One should eat at least one Kazayis of meat each day of Chol HaMoed, preferably animal meat rather than fowl, but if one can not afford regular meat, or does not eat it on account of his health, etc, he should eat at least some fowl (chicken, turkey and the like).

Although there is no requirement to eat bread during Chol HaMoed (and for that reason one does not repeat the benching if he forgets Yaale VeYovo during Chol HaMoed), one should make every effort to wash twice daily for bread/Matzah, once breakfast or lunch and once for supper. according to some opinions, it is sufficient to eat bread/Matzah once a day. If eating bread is too difficult for him, then he should endeavor to eat at least some Mezonos.

Also one should drink at least a Reviis (3 ounces) of WINE each day of Chol HaMoed. One does not satisfy the element of Simcha with drinking grape juice.

A Miracle in Thailand

Monday, Oct 13, 2003

image2964.jpg
When Avi Azuly’s father called his son’s hospital room in Thailand, what he heard on the other end was totally unexpected. He heard the haunting notes of the shofar being sounded. With tears streaming down his cheeks, he thanked G-d, because he knew his son would be all right.

This is the heartwarming saga of a young man from a small town in Israel, an accident in a small town in Thailand, a Chabad House in Bangkok and a Lubavitcher shliach in Florida. All four came together during one terrible night to bring comfort and aid to a Jewish boy who was a stranger to them all.

For the Israeli parents of Avi Azulay the late night telephone call was the one that every parent prays will never come. The call came from the Israeli consul in Thailand. “Your son has been in an accident, he’s in critical condition, get here as soon as you can.”continue...

Learning to make their moves early

Monday, Oct 13, 2003

Chess instructor Dmitry Frenklakh picks up a knight and holds it over the board, demonstrating basic strategy to a class of eight at the Shaloh House Jewish Russian Center and Synagogue in Brighton Center.

''The knight cannot take the bishop, because remember how the knight goes two squares up, and one to the right,'' says Frenklakh. ''So . . . one, two, and one to the right. So the knight can take this pawn. Right?''

The students aren't so sure. But then Kohave, Sheina, Tzippora, Sonya, and the rest are kindergartners, and most are getting their first formal lesson on how to play the game. This is day one, and they're taking it very seriously, many wearing looks of fierce concentration as Frenklakh explains that the knight, unlike everything else on the board, can fly. continue...

A Community Grows In Boynton Beach

Tuesday, Oct 14, 2003

The raucous sounds of bulldozers, jackhammers and electric drills create a constant cacophony in the area around Chabad Lubavitch of Boynton Beach, and the clamor is expected to continue unabated for at least 18 more months.

But no one is complaining. Because the noise is the sound of the future of this South Florida Jewish community located about 65 miles north of Miami Beach.

Can you say 'building bonanza booming in Boynton Beach'? Fifty five beautiful homes are currently under construction next door to the 15,000 square foot Chabad center on El Clair Ranch Road. The homes are appealing to Jewish families because they combine comfort and even opulence with the amenities of traditional Jewish life. continue...

Electronic Bulletin Board on Duty 24/6

Tuesday, Oct 14, 2003

image2967.jpg
TORONTO, CANADA - After years of planning and having obtained permission from the City of Vaughan and the Municipality of York, Chabad Lubavitch has erected an electronic bulletin board at the northeast corner of Bathurst St. and Chabad Gate. The two sided sign embedded in an aesthetic block structure is visible to both, the north and southbound traffic. Accessed and facilitated by a modem and computer, the matrix system displays text and graphic animation in a creative manner and on a continuous basis. Controlled by a conventional keyboard and monitor the four-line display will promote upcoming programs and offer continuous vital information. In addition to notifying the public of upcoming events and programs the venue will display the weekly Shabbat candle lighting time, promote holiday awareness, and encourage participation in seasonal mitzvoth.

On the eighteenth of Elul Chabad Lubavitch hosted a formal celebration marking the installation of the creative community bulletin board. This auspicious day marks the birthday of two leading personalities, the Baal Shem Tov, founder of the Chasidic movement and Rabbi Shneer Zalman of Liadi, founder of the Chabad Lubavitch movement. These two luminaries introduced Chasidic thought and practice with the intent that it spread forth to all Jews, hence their common birthday is a most appropriate day on which to launch an initiative of this nature. The landmark structure is being dedicated by Chabad Lubavitch in honour of Joey & Toby Tanenbaum in recognition of their generous patronage.

Although the sign structure pales in comparison to any construction project, numerous professionals, trades and materials were needed. This would include land surveyors, structural engineers, electricians and others. For this we extend our thanks to Steve Maizels for his yeomen efforts and personal attention to every detail. When during a casual conversation with Rabbi Grossbaum he heard about the project he graciously took a leadership role and offered his expertise, personal attention and generously supplied the needed materials.

“We’re confident that the hi-tech sign which enjoys excellent visability will certainly heighten an awareness and participation in Jewish life,” said Rabbi Zalman Grossbaum, Executive Director of Chabad Lubavitch. And then added, “While it cannot replace the warmth and depth of a ‘human sign’ as noted in the editorial of this issue of the World of Lubavitch, its high visibility and unique public presence will certainly bolster Jewish pride. Also the electronic version will function 24/6!"

Rabbi Shimon Hecht's Shul defaced by vandals

Tuesday, Oct 14, 2003

image2968.jpg
Members of a Park Slope synagogue were reeling yesterday from weekend vandalism that left a glass door shattered and graffiti spray-painted in three places.

Police said they are not sure if the vandalism at Congregation B'Nai Jacob on Ninth St. between Sixth and Seventh Aves. was a bias attack. But Rabbi Shimon Hecht, leader of the Orthodox synagogue, condemned the act.

"When something like this happens you have to raise your eyebrow and wonder if something is happening," said Hecht, adding that many members believe anti-Semitism fueled the attack.

"If you ignore anti-Semitism it grows and grows and can mushroom into who knows what," he added.

Hecht said a witness saw two teenagers repeatedly kick one of the synagogue's elaborate stained-glass doors until a protective glass pane shattered just before midnight Saturday. The vandals darted off when a neighbor shouted at them.

On Sunday morning, congregation members also found graffiti spray-painted on the synagogue's door and in two places on the sukkah, a temporary ceremonial structure that is erected outside synagogues at this time each year to commemorate Sukkoth.

It is not clear if the same vandals are responsible for both attacks. No arrests have been made.

Lt. James Woods, commander of the Brooklyn South community affairs unit, said detectives are investigating to determine if it should be classified a bias attack.

"Anytime something happens to a house of worship, we look into it with that in mind," he said outside the synagogue.

Woods said the graffiti appeared to be a common tag that has been spray-painted elsewhere in the neighborhood.

Sukkah Near Wrigley Encourages 'Do a Mitzvah and Help the Cubs'

Tuesday, Oct 14, 2003

"Parked" at 1025 W. Addison amidst the concessionaires and souvenir hawkers, on Wednesday, Lubavitch Chabad of Illinois positioned their Sukkah and offered passersbys readying for Game 6 of the NLCS a chance to "Do a Mitzvah and Help the Cubs."

"The whole city is obsessed with the Cubs and their history-defying run to the World Series," explains Rabbi Daniel Moscowitz, Director of the 18 Lubavitch centers throughout the state. "And now is the festival of Sukkos, called 'the time of our celebration,' so we figured we had to take the lead in combining these two celebrations, the Festival of Sukkot and the Cubs."

Passersbys to the Lubavitch Sukkah at 1025 W. Addison had a chance to make the blessing on the lulav and have a snack in the Sukkah.

Troops kill PFLP man at W. Bank checkpoint

Wednesday, Oct 15, 2003

Troops shot and killed a member of the radical Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) at the village of Enbata near Tulkarm on the West Bank Wednesday.

The Palestinian approached an IDF checkpoint recently set up in the area, and when called on to stop, the man attempted to flee the area. Soldiers opened fire on the man after he again ignored their calls to stop.

Army Radio reported that troops identified the man as a PFLP militant who has been in an Israeli jail in the past.

Elsewhere in Tulkarm, troops at a checkpoint west of the city arrested a Palestinian woman who tried to attack them with a knife.

The woman, a Tulkarm resident, arrived at the checkpoint, pulled out a knife and rushed at soldiers manning the checkpoint. Soldiers drew their weapons on the oncoming attacker, who then fainted just meters in front of the troops.

The woman has been handed over to the General Security Service for questioning.

In the Gaza Strip, Palestinians lobbed grenades at IDF forces near the town of Rafiah on the Israel-Egypt border. There were no injuries in the attack.

The IDF has been operating in Rafiah to expose and destroy tunnels used to smuggle weapons from Egypt into the Gaza Strip.

Sukkot: Sense of community, unity

Wednesday, Oct 15, 2003

ROCKAWAY TWP., NJ -- The soup was delicious, and the entertainment was a hit, but more important, the sense of community that defines the Jewish holiday of Sukkot was everywhere at the Chabad Center of Northwest New Jersey on Monday night.

More than 90 people crowded into a reception room at the Chabad Center to observe Sukkot, the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles. It commemorates the 40-year period that the Jews wandered the desert as described in the Old Testament and lived in temporary shelters and the fall harvest.

Sukkot starts on the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Tishri, shortly after Yom Kippur. The third and final celebration of the departure from Egypt, Sukkot is named for the huts used by Moses and the Israelites.

"It's a festival of unity for the family. We celebrate together as a family, a people," Rabbi Mordechai Baumgarten said.

In keeping with Sukkot tradition, there were seven soups for people to sample and enjoy on Monday night. Everyone had their favorite.

Ally Gomer and Chelsea Seidenberg, sophomores at Morris Hills High School, both favored the vegetable soup.

Gomer's mother, Reva, explained what she most appreciates about the holiday. "It's togetherness, for sure. It's a celebration of family. It's a very nice way of connecting with the community," she said.

Young children assembled in a circle on the floor laughed as R.J. Lewis performed tricks such as using his teeth to balance a chair above his head.

Later on, there was dancing of the most informal kind.

"It's dancing from the heart. It's not the kind of dancing you take lessons for," Rabbi Asher Herson explained.

Halacha of the Day -- Chol HaMoed (2)

Wednesday, Oct 15, 2003

Adapted from the Sefer Chol HaMoed KeHilchoso by Rabbi Yekusiel Farkas

If one forgot to mention Yaale VeYovo in Birkas Hamozon and realized his error before saying Hashem's name in the Brocho of Boneh Yerushalayim, he goes back to Yaale VeYovo and continues from there. If he already said Hashem's name he completes the Brocho and then says Baruch ata...ha'olom asher nosan moadim le'amo Yisroel lesason ulesimcha es yom chag (Hasukkos/Hapesach) hazeh" with no concluding brocho. If he started the fourth Brocho, even if only the word Baruch, he completes the benching and does not have to repeat it.

In the horachamans we do not say Harachaman Hu yanchileinu yom shekulo tov.

One needs to wear nice and clean clothes during Chol HaMoed, -- Shabbos clothing. One who needs to go to work (when permitted) is not required to wear Shabbos or Yom Tov clothes but he should still wear clean and nice clothing which is appropriate for Chol HaMoed. Those who work in places where they are required to wear company designated clothing, such as uniforms, still need to wear appropriate clothing when going to work and change when they come to their working place.

One may not intermingle two simchos together, therefore it is not permitted to get married during Chol HaMoed. However one may make a L'chaim, vort, bris, Pidyan Haben, Chanukas HaBayis, Siyum and Bar Mitzvah during Chol HaMoed.

Mobilizing prayer

Wednesday, Oct 15, 2003

image2974.jpg
Students leaving Barnard College yesterday encountered an unusual welcome wagon: A rickety, wooden succah, or booth, perched atop an 18-foot flatbed truck manned by six black-hatted Hasidim from Crown Heights.

The converted truck was one of six spread across Manhattan carrying succah, the ceremonial huts built in observance of the Jewish harvest festival, Succoth, being celebrated this week.

A group of Lubavitcher men, organized by Immanuel Storfer, took it upon themselves to bring this symbol of the holiday, also known as the Feast of Tabernacles, to city-dwellers who do not have the space, time or material to construct their own succah. continue...

A Sukkah On Saddam's Palace Grounds

Wednesday, Oct 15, 2003

image2975.jpg
Col. Jacob Goldstein, Chief of Chaplains for New York State Army National Guard, serving in Iraq, wanted to have an etrog sent to Afghanistan in time for the Sukkot holiday. He had brought several along with him to Iraq, and knew that Jewish chaplains in Afghanistan would appreciate an etrog as well. But he was told not to bother. It would ruin in the heat, and arrive useless. Goldstein persisted until a U.S. army airforce transport flew him to Afghanistan, to personally deliver the etrog to the Jewish chaplains there.

In an interview early this morning with Lubavitch.com, Rabbi Goldstein said, “Yesterday I ate in a Sukkah we put up on the grounds of the Palace.” Goldstein, who was speaking by satellite cell phone as he was traveling to an undisclosed location, was referring to Sadam Hussein’s palace. Loud background noises broke in every few minutes. “We are not in a good neighborhood,” he said, explaining that he was in full battle armor and carrying a loaded machine gun because the area “is under constant gunfire.” But Goldstein’s enthusiasm for the opportunity Jewish soldiers were given to participate in the traditions and observances of this month of Jewish holidays, came through loud and clear.

“The Jewish soldiers were stunned to see a Sukkah on the palace grounds,” he admits. This was one of a dozen sukkahs that Goldstein arranged to have shipped through Chabad’s Aleph Institute. continue...

More Than 500 Visit Joseph’s Tomb

Thursday, Oct 16, 2003

For the first time since June, hundreds of Jewish worshipers visited the Tomb of Joseph in Shechem. After receiving IDF clearance, the large group visited the tomb over night through this morning (Thursday) - the day of Sukkot mystically associated in some traditions with patriarch Joseph. Among the visitors was former Chief Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu, who led the early morning prayers, other leading rabbinical figures, students from the displaced Od Yosef Chai yeshiva of Shechem, visiting donors from overseas and hundreds of Breslover Hassidim. There have been very few such organized visits to the patriarch’s tomb over the past two years and last night’s visit was made under heavy military and police protection.

Yehuda Liebman, of Od Yosef Chai yeshiva, told Arutz-7 that Rabbi Eliyahu was visibly pained by the destruction and desolation wrought by the Arabs at the holy gravesite. Despite the physical state of the Tomb, Liebman noted, the visitors danced at the compound all through the night, to the accompaniment of a live band.

This morning, after the Jewish worshipers had already left the site, local Arabs broke in and threw burning tires into the Joseph’s Tomb complex. There were no reports of injuries; Palestinian Authority firefighters were sent to fight the fire. Liebman commented to Arutz-7 that, in today’s reality, the desecration of a Jewish grave in the Ukraine causes a greater media uproar than the desecration of Joseph’s grave, one of the sites holy to the people of Israel. Even if there is nothing left to burn, thanks to continuing periodic Arab vandalism, Liebman said, the flaming tires today were intended simply as a symbolic burning of the symbols of Judaism.

Liebman continued, "In the State of Israel, with its strong army, the worshipers could have entered freely, in the daylight, and not like thieves in the night with massive security forces for protection. There is a need to create a balance of terror that will deter the Arab rioters from damaging the holy site."

Rabbis and spokesmen of the Od Yosef Chai Yeshiva called on the IDF to allow the yeshiva to return to its original location in the Tomb compound. Od Yosef Chai students are currently making use of temporary facilities outside Shechem. Yeshiva sources said that since the IDF is now located throughout Judea and Samaria, it should take the initiative and secure the roads to the Tomb site.

IDF sources expressed hope that organized visits such as that of last night will encourage Breslover Hassidim - many of whom have been arrested over the past few years for violating IDF travel bans - to cease their periodic illegal and dangerous individual forays into Shechem.

Joseph, son of Patriarch Jacob and Matriarch Rachel, was buried outside the Biblical city of Shechem, and his gravesite remained outside the city for about 3,500 years. However, creeping Arab construction in the past three decades gradually led to the creation of an Arab neighborhood around the site. Border Guard soldier Madhat Yusef was killed in a battle at the compound in October 2000. At the time, the IDF retreated from the site, after which Arab mobs first desecrated the compound and then rededicated it as a mosque.

Thursday, Oct 16, 2003

image2976.jpg
For the eighth year, Chabad Lubavitch of Midtown erected a giant Sukkah in Midtown serving thousands of people from all walks of life.

The Sukkah is on Fifth Avenue in front of The New York Public Library across the street from the Chabad Lubavitch Midtown Center. Centrally located between the transportation hubs of Times Square, Penn Station and Grand Central Station, the Sukkah was visited by thousands of businesspeople, professionals, tourists, students and holiday revelers.

Rabbi Yehoshua Metzger, Director of Chabad of Midtown, thanks the Office of the Mayor, Commissioner Jonathan Greenspun, the Bryant Park Organization, and the staff and volunteers of Chabad of Midtown for their untiring efforts in making the Sukkah a great success.

The Sukkah was open daily from 7:00am until 10:00pm.

Sukkot With IDF's New Recruits

Thursday, Oct 16, 2003

image2977.jpg
It’s Sukkot—a time of joy and spiritual celebrations, and in Israel, where a large percent of the country’s young men are typically away from home serving in the army, Chabad-Lubavitch makes a point of bringing the spirit of the holidays to the soldiers.

Chabad-Lubavitch rabbinical student Mendy Ofen has a personal rapport with many of the army’s seargants, and when he received a call from one at a recruiting base requesting that he come to celebrate with new recruits, Mendy was there within hours.

Arriving with fellow rabbinical students, a mobile Sukkah and enough drink and cake to go around, Mendy was greeted by several hundred soldiers. After a brief synopsis of the rituals and significance of Sukkot, the soldiers observed the mitzvot of lulav and etrog, taking their turns in the Sukkah and raising their cups to say “L’chaim!” Then the dancing began to live music and high spirits.

“It was really uplifting for the new recruits, and gave them a good sendoff as they begin their service in the army,” said Mendy.

MIVTZOIM OUTSIDE THE COURTROOM OF THE WASHINGTON AREA SNIPER TRIAL WIDELY COVERED BY THE PRESS

Thursday, Oct 16, 2003

image2978.jpg
On Tuesday, quick thinking Junior Shluchim in Virginia Beach, VA were right on target when they decided to go and do Mivtza Lulav & Esrog outside the courtroom where the nationally covered murder trial of the Washington area sniper suspect John Allen Muhammad was getting underway with the jury selection.

Thanks to all the media covering the trial the boys Mivtzoim got special mention in the press.

The following are a few of the clippings mentioning the mivtzoim.

The Washington Post wrote:

Another Sort of 'Uplink'

A little before noon, a striking entourage of bearded young men and teenagers strode across the municipal campus -- not far from the prowling reporters and ponderous TV "uplink" trucks docked like battleships outside the courthouse complex .

They were the four Margolin brothers from Norfolk -- Yosef, 22, Mendy, 21, Shmuel, 17, and Yisroel, 14 -- and two teenage friends from Brooklyn. They walked happily and said Yisroel was bearing a bunch of palm, willow and myrtle branches in celebration of the Jewish festival of Sukkot.

The six, representatives of a Jewish outreach group, Chabad, said the varied reeds symbolized human diversity and unity.

They were a serene vision on a humid morning amid the talk of serial murder. And as they walked quickly past the ranks of TV trucks with antennas turned heavenward, they said they had an "uplink," too, "a direct connection to G-d," Yosef Margolin said.

In the bed of a friend's Dodge pickup, parked in a nearby parking lot, was a traditional Sukkot shelter, a symbol of trust in the Creator. The shelter is made of plywood and bamboo and fitted with a small table and two chairs. "It's a spiritual satellite truck," Mendy Margolin said. "You connect with G-d in there."

The six said they were aware of the sniper trial, and recalled the terror of last October. They noted that the eight-day festival celebrates the security and safety that comes with faith. "What we're trying to do is light up the world with acts of kindness, good deeds," Yosef Margolin said. "Slowly make it a better place like that."

The Baltimore Sun wrote: …Nearby, a group of six young Orthodox Jews dressed in wrinkled oxford-cloth shirts and yarmulkes paraded past the brick courthouse complex, carrying sheaths filled with myrtle leaves, willow stalks and palm branches.

They had driven over from Norfolk in a pickup truck to share Sukkot, an eight-day religious celebration for joy and unity, with Jews they met along the way. But, said the youngest, Yisroel Margolin, 14, they also hoped their mission encouraged thoughtfulness among the 123 potential jurors who filed through the courtroom of Judge LeRoy F. Millette Jr.

"I hope nobody jumps to conclusions, and that they give the man the justice he deserves," Margolin's brother, Shmuel, said as he clustered beside the truck with his three brothers and a pair of friends from Brooklyn, N.Y.

And The Virginian Pilot wrote: ...Payden-Travers wasn't the only one spreading a message. A small group of Jewish men walked the complex looking for Jews with whom to celebrate the Sukkot holiday, which started Saturday.

The seven-day festival asks Jews to rejoice in G-d's protection during their 40 years in the desert, explained Shmuel Margolin, a member of Chabad Lubavitch of Tidewater in Norfolk.

The message to trust in G-d for protection is in direct contrast to the fear the snipers wrought last year, he said.

Sukkot Honors Unity: Jewish harvest festival remembers exodus from Egypt

Thursday, Oct 16, 2003

image2979.jpg
As her three children darted around the Hazel Dell home of Schmulik and Tzivie Greenberg on Tuesday evening, Michelle Hersh of Camas talked about the celebration of Sukkot.

Sukkot honors both the harvest and the early Jews' struggle in the desert during the exodus from Egypt.

"Our ancestors had to live out in the desert," Hersh said. "They always needed to move from place to place."

The Hersh family was among a small gathering at the Greenbergs' to commemorate the Jewish holiday.

The Greenbergs moved to Vancouver recently to establish Chabad Lubavitch of Clark County, WA. Chabad is a Hebrew acronym for the words for wisdom, comprehension and knowledge; Lubavitch is a town in Belarus. In Clark County, the organization will provide Jewish education and offer holiday celebrations. continue...

Thursday, Oct 16, 2003

image2980.jpg
As has now become customary, the Lubavitch community in Manchester hosted a grand Simchas Bais Hashoayvah at Beis Menachem, with live music and dancing.

Boruch Hashem the event was a huge success with hundreds of people from all different walks of life turning out to sing and dance in a wonderful display of achdus.

The children were treated to a fantastic show of entertainment by HaTomim Yisroel Goodman with fire juggling, unicycling and many other treats.

A video inside the large sukka was constantly playing Living Torah videos of the Rebbe and attracted a large crowd. As well as feeding the soul, there was also plenty nourishment for the body with hot food, drinks and of course plenty L'chaim!

Children from the local Lubavitch school said the Torah pesukim and many people took the opportunity to farbreng in the Sukkah.

Traveling Sukkos Party in Greece

Thursday, Oct 16, 2003

image2981.jpg
Aside from the larger Jewish communities of Athens and Salonika, Greece has several small communities scattered around the country. Those communities were delighted to host Sukkos celebrations organized by Chabad of Athens.

The traveling program included an educational game, concert and sing-along with singer-guitarist Marty Einsenstein from Athens and refreshments enjoyed in the beautifully decorated Sukka. “With Sukkos being the Holiday of Joy and Unity, it was a good idea to visit small communities who dont always have the opportunity to gather and celebrate their Jewish heritage”, says Rabbi Hendel, the Shliach in Athens.

The trip ended on the island of Corfu. While the preparations were underway, numerous tourists from Israel, the United States and other countries came to visit the old and splendid synagogue. Watching the Sukkah being built from scratch, they were very happy to have the chance to make a Brocha on the Lulav.

Many of them mentioned that they were in contact with their local Chabad House, and marveled at Chabad’s presence as far as in the Greek islands.

In the evening, Jewish people young and old got together for a memorable celebration. Singing and dancing, everybody got into the spirit of the Holiday, and left with the promise to initiate more such events for the community.

Three soldiers killed in Fatah ambush

Sunday, Oct 19, 2003

IDF soldier Sgt. Elad Pollak,19 of Kiryat Motskin was one of three IDF soldiers of the Duhifat Batallion who were killed and a fourth soldier moderately wounded in a terrorist ambush as they patrolled inside the Ein Yabrud village east of Ramallah and south of Ofra on Sunday night.

The Fatah Al Aksa Brigades claimed responsibility for the attack in which three terrorists, who hid behind a low cement wall near the road and waited for the soldier, scrept up behind the troops and opened fire at the patrol ten meters away. They then fled in a Fiat Uno car taking the soldiers' weapons with them.

The three soldiers died from multiple gunshot wounds to the head, back and chest and legs officials said. Pollak is to be buried in the military section at the Tsur Shalom cemetery Monday afternoon at 3.30.

In a briefing with reporters at the entrance to Ofra, OC Central Command Maj.Gen. Moshe Kaplinsky said the terrorists attacked the soldiers from the rear.

The soldiers' commander who was in a vehicle nearby heard the gunshots and arrived at the scene two minutes later and alerted security forces.

Kaplinsky praised the Duhifat Batallion who operate in the area on a permanent basis and said soldiers from the batallion were currently searching for the terrorists. "Duhifat who lost three of its soldiers is an excellent batallion and they are presently pursuing the perpetraters," he said.

The soldiers were not conducting routine operations but involved in combined activities that include foot and mobile patrols as well as other activities in an attempt to enhance the security of Israelis who drive on Road 60, said Kaplinsky. "I believe that if the terrorists hadn't run into the soldiers they would have perpetrated a shooting attack at Israeli vehicles who use the main road and would have harmed civilians," said Kaplinsky.

IDF forces imposed a curfew on the village located in an area under Israeli security control, as troops searched the surrounding area for the perpetrators, using flares to light up the skies and IAF helicopter support to hunt down the perpetraters. The search extended into neighborhing villages in an attempt to find the terrorists who according to IDF officials used two Kalashnikov rifles and an M16 in the shooting.

An IDF official told The Jerusalem Post that the terrorists suprised the soldiers who were in the midst of patrolling the village in the framework of deterrence activities carried out by security forces.

According to initial findings officials said the soldiers all wore bulletproof flac jackets when they were hit.

Security officials did not rule out the possibility that the attack was orchestrated and planned by Fatah fugitives based in the Mukata in Ramallah, the headquarters of PA Yasser Arafat.

In stating its claim the Fatah Al Aksa Briagde said the shooting was in response to the IDF activities in Rafah. Refuting this statement, Israeli diplomatic sources said that Al Aksa Brigade attacks did not start with the IDF operations in Rafah, which were aimed at uncovering weapons smuggling tunnels.

On receiving reports of the shooting shortly after 7, Magen David Adom ambulances from Ofra, Psagot and other communities raced to the scene.

Paramedic Yaniv Oved said by the time he arrived at the scene ambulance paramedics were attempting to resuscitate the three soldiers. "There was nothing that could be done they suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the head, chest, and other parts of the bodies. The wounded soldier was transferred to Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem," he said.

Dr. Shmuel Shapiro deputy head of the Hadassah Hospital in Ein Kerem said the wounded soldier arrived close to an hour after the shooting suffering from gunshot wounds to the legs. He described the soldier's condition as moderate and said his wounds were being evaluated for further treatment.

Pinhas Wallerstein head of the Binyamin Regional Council pointed an accusing finger at the Mukata. "Tonight's fatal shooting attack came from the Mukata under Arafat's guidance. Sharon's government must carry out its decision and oust Arafat the murderer and finish with him. Arafat spilt enough Jewish blood and its about time he is served with the death sentence, the only fitting punishment for him," said Wallerstein.

In the past three years there have been numerous terrorist shooting in the area perpetrated by the Fatah Al Aksa Brigades.

A diplomatic source in Jerusalem told Israel Radio that the attack "quickens the coming of the day of reckoning for the Palestinian Authority leadership."

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said the attack only strengthened Israel's resolve in its war against terrorism.

Justice Minister Yosef Lapid, being interviewed on Channel One TV when news of the terror attack came in, condemned the shooting and held Palestinian leaders responsible.

"These madmen causing us sorrow and pain are also causing the Palestinians a deterioration into helplessness. The Palestinians don't realize the disaster they are bringing upon themselves," Lapid said.

Meanwhile, five reservist batallions will be deployed in the West Bank and Gaza Strip in the framework of a limited mobilization of reservists who received call up notices during the Succot week as part of an effort to beef up the security presence in the Territories due to the ongoing violence.

Israel's security establishment has registered 42 terror warnings for Sunday 19th October 2003.

Earlier in the month, Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz paved the way for a limited call up of reservists and cancelled all IDF training and officers courses due to the increase in the number of alerts received by the security establishment of plans by terrorists to perpetrate attacls.

Mofaz handed over the sole authorization of calling up reservists and cancelling training courses to Chief of General Staff Lt.Gen. Moshe Ya'alon who judging on operational requirements makes the necessary decisions.

Rabbi a hit with sukkah in a truck

Sunday, Oct 19, 2003

Typically during the Jewish festival of Sukkot, observants eat their meals in a sukkah, a temporary building made especially for the holiday.

But those who work outside the home during the day have no way of doing that. Unless the sukkah comes to them.

That's just what Rabbi Yitzchok Tiechtel of Congregation Beit Tefillah in Bellevue is doing all week. With a sukkah constructed and placed on the back of a pickup, the rabbi is driving around town to make it easier for people to observe.

Yesterday, he went to the Juvenile Justice Center near The Coliseum in downtown Nashville. He also had plans to visit Opry Mills, downtown offices and hospitals. continue...

TIRES SLASHED AGAIN IN CROWN HEIGHTS

Sunday, Oct 19, 2003

For the second time in just over a week tires of cars in Crown Heights were slashed.

The latest incident took place on Simchas Torah night and took place on Crown Street between Albany & Brooklyn Avenues. Tires on some 15 cars were slashed.

The vandalism took place despite the increased number of police in the neighborhood. One Crown Heights resident who spoke with SNS said "how can the police catch the guy(s) if half of them are busy talking on their cellphones while the others are listening to the world series?"

SNS has learned, that NYPD Commissioner Kelly and Chief Fox both came to Crown Heighst today to meet with Chanina Sperlin and said they would add even more resources to try and track down the culprit(s). One of the measures being taken is the installation of surveillance cameras.

In an unrelated incident, an African American male was arrested Motzei Yom Tov for pulling a BB gun on 2 Bochurim outside 770.

Hasidic congregation harvests some fun with fall festival of Sukkot

Sunday, Oct 19, 2003

Max Cohen, 6, of Upper St. Clair, loves to sing and dance, but his favorite part of the Mommy and Me program at Chabad of the South Hills, PA is pumping his fist in the air during the songs.

Monday's Mommy and Me was a little different, as about a dozen families packed into Chabad's Sukkah, a makeshift outdoor hut, to celebrate the Jewish holiday of Sukkot this week. Sukkot is a harvest festival where Jews are reminded that G-d is responsible for their shelter and bounty. The hut symbolizes the shelter G-d provided in the exodus from Egypt.

Through songs, pictures and puppets, the kids learned about the holiday and its traditions, but parents said the children were too busy having fun to realize they were learning. continue...

Hollywood city manager orders synagogue out of two houses

Sunday, Oct 19, 2003

Adding to the Hollywood Community Synagogue Chabad Lubavitch's troubles, City Manager Cameron Benson this week sent the synagogue's president a letter stating that the worship center must stop operating there by Monday.

''Chabad must desist holding services and other related activities at 2215 and 2221 N. 46th Avenue by Monday,'' Benson wrote. ``Further, we encourage you to obtain the necessary building permits within the next 60 days to return these structures to single-family homes.''

Benson could not be reached for comment Friday morning. It is unclear what will happen if the synagogue does not comply with Benson's demand.

Hollywood Hills residents have complained of noise, garbage, traffic and parking problems at the two homes for more than two years.

In June, the city commission turned down the synagogue's request to stay permanently in the residential Hollywood Hills neighborhood. At that time, city staff was directed to work with the synagogue to find a new location.

Benson, City Attorney Dan Abbott and other city employees met with synagogue officials in June and July.

''Although attempts were made by all to resolve the situation, it is unfortunate, through the fault of neither party, such a site has not been identified,'' Benson wrote.

The synagogue is also facing foreclosure proceedings on its two homes. Earlier this month, a judge ordered the sale of the house where the congregation worships because the synagogue fell behind on its mortgage payments.

Sunday, Oct 19, 2003

IMAGE770.JPG
CROWN HEIGHTS (SNS) – After mostly wonderful weather all Sukkos long the rain began to fall on Shemini Atzeres night. Depending on when people ate they either got a little less or a little more wet but they didn’t leave the Sukkah dry.

On Friday night there were 4 Sholom Zochors k”ah. The Sholom Zochors took place after Hakofos.

Hundreds of additional guests came to spend Shemini Atzeres & Simchas Torah in Crown Heights. It was a beautiful and very lebedik Yom Tov.

On Shabbos day there were 7 Chasanim downstairs & 2 Chasanim in the Rebbe’s room.

Below you will find a short roundup of Yom Tov in Crown Heights and @ the Ohel, we hope you enjoy it. continue...

At least 11 Palestinians killed in day of war in Gaza

Monday, Oct 20, 2003

Palestinians reported a loud explosion in the Shajaiyeh neighborhood of Gaza, the same area targeted earlier this morning by warplanes that blew up a bomb factory.

The IDF Spokesman said warplanes returned to complete the mission and ensure that the premises were totally destroyed. There were no casualties in the attack.

But eight were killed and scores wounded when IAF helicopters fired rockets at a vehicle travelling in the Nussreta refugee camp in the central gaza strip.

Security officials said IDF forces spotted a terrorist cell attempting to infiltrate Israel west of Kibbut Nachal Oz. The soldiers opened fire and shot and killed a number of the infiltrators and spotted others attempting to flee in a vehicle back into Gaza.

The soldiers alerted a helicopter team in the area, which pursued the car and fired rockets, hitting it. The officials were unable to confirm the identities or affiliations of the Palestinians killed despite reorts claiming that among the dead is senior Hamas commander Imad Akel.

Earlier Monday, IAF helicopters and an F16 warplane pounded a bomb factory; a weapons warehouse; a vehicle containing two terrorists in charge of the manufacture of Kassam rockets, mortar shells and explosives used in attacks against Israel; and a second vehicle containing Hamas terrorists.

Khaled Said Matsri, 36, and Iyad Fayez al Hilu, 28, who rode in a pickup truck loaded with explosives and weapons, were killed when rockets hit their car. Marwan al Khatib, 35, who drove in a vehicle behind them, died shortly after from injuries he sustained in the attack. According to Palestinian media reports, casualties from all the air strikes have left at least nine Palestinians dead and over eighty civilians wounded, many of them women and children.

Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz vowed on Monday that Israel will continue attacking terrorist targets "everywhere and anywhere at any time." Israeli security officials said the aim of the attack was to hamper Hamas activities and harm its capability to wage attacks against Israel. Both the Hamas and Islamic Jihad vowed to avenge the attacks and PA Prime Minister Ahmed Qurei declared that such actions only undermined attempts to reach a mutual ceasefire. "Such aggression as we have seen in Gaza today is not acceptable and will not help us as a government to achieve a mutual ceasefire."

In the evening, Palestinians responded by firing two Kassam rockets at a kibbutz not far from Sderot. The rockets exploded in an open area, no one was wounded and no damage reported. In addition, Palestinians fired three mortar shells, two fired at an Israeli community in Gush Katif and landed directly on a house in the community that was empty. No one was wounded in the attack. Shortly after a third mortar shell was fired at an IDF position located near an Israeli community in Gush Katif. On Sunday a total of 8 Kassam rockets were fired at Sderot and western Negev communities, no one was wounded and no damage reported.

Shortly after 8am, an F16 warplane bombed a building located in the Al Jidaiyda area of the Al Shijaya neighborhood east of Gaza city, described by the IDF Spokesman as a bomb factory run by the Hamas where explosives, mortar shells and Kassam rockets were manufactured. Seven Palestinians were wounded in the blast. The Islamic Jihad immediately accused Israel of attempting to target Islamic Jihad leader Sheikh Abdullah Shami whose home is located two hundred meters from the building. Israeli security officials denied the charges. Palestinians claimed the building hit was empty and belonged to Ammar Mushtaha and his family, members of the Hamas. The bomb they said demolished most of the two-floor building. Shortly after the attack Shami told reporters "Israel targets all people of Palestine including old women and children Israel has launched a violent war against Rafah and Jenin the owners of the house were a Palestinian family waiting for it to be built but Israel has deprived them of this happiness as their home as been completely destroyed," he said denying Israel's claims that the building was the site of a bomb factory.

Before 11am, IAF helicopters fired rockets at a pickup truck containing two Hamas terrorists who according to reports had loaded the vehicle with weapons and explosives and were driving down Al Jala'a Street in Gaza city to take them to a safe place until they could be used in attacks against Israel. The two terrorists Matsri and Hilu were killed outright and Khatib who was driving in a vehicle behind them died shortly after. In addition reports claimed ten others were wounded including school children. Taxi driver Adel Fawaz drove behind the pick up truck and stopped when the traffic lights turned red. "The blast took away my car's windshield and shook my car violently," he said.

At 12.25pm, IAF helicopters fired rockets at a Hamas owned warehouse where weapons, mortar shells, Kassam rockets and explosives were stored. Israeli security officials said the building was located in an open area outside of the main city and the size of the explosion showed that it had been full of weapons and explosives.

Elsewhere in the Gaza Strip, IDF forces operating in Rafah shot a Palestinian armed with a grenade launcher who was about to attack soldiers deployed in the area. Earlier in the afternoon troops defused a large mine placed by Palestinians near Rafah.

Aleph Saves Yom Kippur for 100 Jewish Military Personnel in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii

Monday, Oct 20, 2003

One of the many challenges included scrounging up the funds with which to purchase brand new, and most importantly for myself, traditional Machzorim (High Holiday prayer books) to be used for services at the Pear Harbor Aloha Jewish Chapel. Without such, this would be a potential show-stopper. Thankfully, the Department of Navy did its share in working a purchase with a New York based publisher. However, despite promises from the contracted vendor, the publisher defaulted on their guarantee to deliver one hundred Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) holiday prayer books. To make matters worse, we received notification of such with little more than one business day left before the weekend on which Yom Kippur started.

Having been in tight spots before, although thankfully not of my own doing, the options were limited to none, save one – Aleph! The Aleph Institute out of Surfside, Florida was my ace in the hole. As a Chabad-affiliate organization dedicated to the support of Jews in institutional environments, such as the military, they had been a help in the past (Matzo for Passover, candles for Chanukah, Hamman-tashen for Purim…) and toward them I turned for last minute High Holiday salvation. After little more than mentioning my plight, they resourcefully laid hands on 100 Hebrew-English holiday prayer books, and within two hours had them boxed and shipped via UPS express overnight service on their way to Hawaii. In short, a holiday (Yom Kippur) for many saved by Aleph. For myself, their performance ability was not surprising, but rather has proven and reinforced itself to be the professional standard by which they operate.

Although completely unsolicited, Aleph Institute Jewish Art Calendars which arrived the day before Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) proved to be a valued replacement for similar calendars which another vendor/supply source failed to produce in sufficient quantities – leaving us without any. How did they anticipate such??? It was like Manna from heaven.

Also, as the Jewish Chaplain responsible for the entire Pacific theater of operations, my office sends deployment care packages to Service Members deployed as part of the current war effort. This holiday season, dozens of Jewish Marines and sailors were the recipients of such care packages. What may you ask was the key ingredient in those packages? – Honey packets provided by the Aleph Institute.

My personal thanks to the Aleph Institute and its staff for continued support of Jewish men and women serving in this country’s Armed Forces.

Sukkot On Cyprus

Monday, Oct 20, 2003

image2983.jpg
Jewish residents and tourists who frequent the lovely Mediterranean island of Cyprus at this time of year, had the opportunity to celebrate the Festival of Sukkot inside a sukkah—the first kosher sukkah ever in Cyprus.

Flown in from Israel, the sukkah was constructed on the grounds of the Cyprus Chabad House. At around 250 square feet, it is large enough to comfortably contain the large crowd that gathers every evening for a festive dinner, song and Torah study. Open round the clock, countless visitors have fulfilled the mitzvah of taking the four kinds (lulav and etrog) in the sukkah, where Chabad-Lubavitch rabbinical students from Israel are on hand to greet and assist them.

Rabbi Zev Raskin, the Chabad-Lubavitch representative to Cyprus, has also arranged for a roving sukkah that travels the length and breadth of the island, giving thousands of Jews the chance to step inside and participate in the observances and traditions unique to Sukkot.

Word spreads fast on the island, and Rabbi Raskin has been inundated with calls regarding Simchat Torah. In true Chabad tradition, the rabbi and the rabbinical students are gearing up for Simchat Torah festivities where the dancing is sure to go on all night and the spirit of Jewish joy will carry on way beyond the holiday.

The Sukkah that caught the reporters attention...

Monday, Oct 20, 2003

image2984.jpg
From the window of the First Avenue bus, going home Wednesday evening, I looked left and saw something unusual in Ralph Bunche Park. It was a structure about 20 feet square, made of corrugated plastic sheets, with green boughs on the roof.

"What in the name of G-d?" I said to myself. It was an exclamation that turned out to be quite appropriate.

My yoga teacher Guta (one private lesson Wednesdays—extravagant, but keeps me able to swing my legs over fences) has a boyfriend who teaches at Yeshiva. So when I told her about the strange fort in Ralph Bunche Park, she told me about the Jewish holiday of Sukkot. Part of the holiday is the sukkah, a little building put up as a reminder of the tents in which the Jewish people lived during their 40 years in the desert.

...The first young man who arrived to open the sukkah, in severe black suit and black hat, couldn't answer my queries. He was Israeli, he didn't speak English well, and he struggled to explain. He did try out his one crystal-clear sentence in English on me, though: "Are you Jewish?"

I remembered that Lubavitch Jews are known for the Mitzvahmobile. Men in Hasidic garb ask passersby, "Are you Jewish?" and invite Jews to come in and pray.

Three older men arrived late in the afternoon, sat down inside, and could tell me about the 40 years in the desert.

"Are you Jewish?" one of them asked.

Why here? Why across from the United Nations?

"Because there are many Jews there," the oldest of the three replied....

Camp L’man Achai - Sukkos Reunion

Monday, Oct 20, 2003

image2985.jpg
No doubt, Camp L’man Achai – an overnight camp for not yet observant children ages 8-15 – has just had its most successful summer ever! Two months packed with extraordinary fun and meaning, made the biggest impression possible on every single child.

With hard work and constant encouragement of dedicated staff, eight campers now attend United Lubavitch Yeshiva, in a class created and geared especially for them, including one camper from a completely non observant background that has had a Bris only four months ago!

And now, more than a month since camp and these children won’t let go! Close to forty kids came to Crown Heights for a first reunion on Monday afternoon, first day of Chol Hamoed.

The program began with Mincha in the front of 770, followed by the reciting of the twelve P’sukim. An entire Shul was in suspense, observing young children sincerely praying and begging to be united with the Rebbe they’ve learned about in camp, once more.

After that, campers and staff sat encircled outside on the grass in front of the Rebbe’s room, reviving the camp spirit with songs and cheers, followed by a march to the Tzivos-Hashem Sukkos Experience.

The reunion came to its end only after everyone gathered at the Hurwitz’s Sukkah for a grand BBQ Farbrengen. Following a story told by camp’s best storyteller L.H., the kids were jumping upside-down to finally receive the camp journal they’ve long been waiting for.

Top rabbi praises pro-Jewish Putin

Monday, Oct 20, 2003

image1300.jpg
A top leader of Russia's Jewish community has said President Vladimir Putin has sent out a clear signal against official anti-Semitism in a country with a long history of persecuting Jews.

Berl Lazar, one of the country's two competing chief rabbis, on Wednesday said Putin had sent out a clear signal to officials by making high-profile visits to Jewish events.

"It is clear that it was the president who launched this change of attitude by turning up at the opening of our community centre, then at the Jewish festival," Lazar said.

Lazar also brushed aside suggestions that legal troubles besetting some of Russia's powerful "oligarchs" - post-Soviet billionaires - were linked to their Jewish origins. continue...

Gaza Terrorists were Planning a Major Attack

Tuesday, Oct 21, 2003

(IsraelNN.com) A senior military source reported that at least seven terrorists were hit with certainty in last night’s aerial offensive in Gaza. He added that some others were hit in the counter-terrorist offensive as well.

The high-ranking official added that events were not necessarily planned as they occurred last night, explaining the terrorists targeted in the air strike were planning to cross into Green Line Israel to perpetrate a major attack according to intelligence reports. This prompted the helicopter gunship to respond without delay to neutralize the threat.

Sukkot holiday winds down

Tuesday, Oct 21, 2003

There's a new rabbi in town. You may have seen him this week driving a car hauling a flatbed trailer carrying a little house with lattice walls and a roof of pine branches.

He's Rabbi Avi Zwiebel and he's hauling his "sukkah" around the valley to share the celebration of Sukkot, the Jewish season of rejoicing, with those who can't make it to a synagogue.

While the name Sukkot is probably not as familiar to non-Jews as other Jewish holidays, the concept is nearly as old as Moses. During the 7-day holiday, which this year began on the evening of Oct. 10 and ended last night, Jews are encouraged to spend as much time as possible outdoors in a temporary structure called a sukkah - a hut or booth. continue...

Synagogue says anonymous donor will pay bills

Tuesday, Oct 21, 2003

A Hollywood synagogue that is struggling to survive in a residential neighborhood announced today that its mortgage woes are over -- at least for now.

At a 1 p.m. press conference, officials of Hollywood Community Synagogue Chabad Lubavitch said an anonymous donor has stepped up with the cash to bring the mortgages current on two homes used by the synagogue at 2215 and 2221 N. 46th Ave.

The properties are in foreclosure, because the cash-strapped synagogue stopped paying the mortgages in April. Rabbi Joseph I. Korf blamed financial troubles at what he called the ''blue-collar'' institution on constant harassment from police and code enforcement officers, prompted by neighbors' phone calls.

Hollywood Hills residents have complained about noise, garbage, traffic and parking problems for more than two years.

He said the uproar has caused the synagogue to lose members -- and their money -- and made it impossible to pay the bills.

Synagogue president Arthur Eckstein said the anonymous donor is an individual, not an organization, and is not a member of the synagogue.

The U.S. Department of Justice acknowledged Monday that it is investigating Hollywood's dealings with the synagogue, especially whether the city violated any rules that prohibit local governments from adopting or enforcing land-use regulations that discriminate against religious institutions.

''Thank almighty G-d for giving us a country that fights for the little guy,'' Korf said.

Korf said that other houses of worship in the Hollywood Hills area exist without a special exception. His synagogue applied for one, which the city eventually denied.

''I don't think we have been treated fairly,'' Korf said.

Their membership is hard to quantify exactly, since they do not charge dues. Korf said that 60-70 people attend Saturday Shabbat services, with 25 or so coming for daily evening prayers. During High Holiday services, about 100 show up.

Jazz in the Sukkah at Columbia U

Tuesday, Oct 21, 2003

image2986.jpg
Students and alumni crowded into Columbia’s Chabad Sukkah last Thursday for an evening of entertainment and celebration with a live jazz band.

Kol HaGeulah, a New Orleans band that does a funky “jazzified” approach to Chasidic music, drew more than 60 students to Chabad’s Sukkah Coffee House, working up terrific momentum with improvisations that were, says one, positively “awesome!”

Rabbi Yona Blum, Chabad-Lubavitch representative to Columbia/Barnard, says the event was extremely popular with students. Chabad’s Sukkah Coffee House was open all Sukkot for students to celebrate the week-long festival.

Rejoicing of the Torah

Tuesday, Oct 21, 2003

Gainesville, Florida area Jews will honor the Torah, or the five books of Moses in the Old Testament, on the holiday of Simchat Torah, which begins today.

Simchat Torah literally means "rejoicing in the law." The holiday focuses on the completion of an annual cycle of reading of the Torah in which the closing chapter of the Book of Deuteronomy is read aloud. Then the scripture reading is begun anew with the first chapter of the Book of Genesis. The holiday teaches that the study of the Torah is a "never-ending" process.

"On Simchat Torah, many different people also take turns holding the Torah scrolls and circling around the Torah. It's a celebration, it's a joyous time," said Rabbi David Kaiman of Congregation B'nai Israel.

Simchat Torah, a rabbinical holiday, was established in the 11th century and emphasizes the role of children in reciting part of the Scriptures aloud, and dancing and singing as the Torah is carried around the synagogue. The holiday is meant to bring people together as a community to explore Torah.

Rabbi Berl Goldman of the Lubavitch Jewish Center of Alachua County said that recently a little girl in his congregation asked him if Simchat Torah was like a date. continue...

A City Guide to Keeping Everything Kosher

Tuesday, Oct 21, 2003

The annual season of autumn Jewish holidays may be running out, but for many people, eating kosher is a year-round policy.

And while Moscow is not overrun with places to purchase kosher foods, there are several cafes, supermarkets and butcher shops that will fit the bill.

It's safe to say that it's now more convenient than ever to stay kosher in Moscow. But that doesn't mean it's easy for the man whose job is to check whether the products and their ingredients are kosher. continue...

SIMCHAS BAIS HASHOAYVAH IN LONDON "LIGHTS UP THE NIGHT"!

Tuesday, Oct 21, 2003

image2987.jpg
Lubavitch of London – Stamford Hill, experienced the ultimate of Simchos Bais Hashoayva, when their usually damp and rainy dancing was transformed into a fiery blaze. People were so concerned that the Fire Brigade were immediately notified!

It all began at 8pm, when people from all over Stamford Hill – from the Bobovers to the Satmarer’s and of course Lubavitcher’s squeezed into the Lubavitch playground/car-park, pulled in by the loud Chassidishe Music being played by our very own professional band: Zalmy Negin on the keyboard, Mendy Loewenthal on the guitar and Yossi Stern on the drums.

With everybody dancing and truly reliving the happiness in the Beis Hamikdash everybody was relieved for the respite in watching an inspiring video of the Rebbe, which took place at 9pm.

Directly after this there was a fire-work display, in following the footsteps of our great sages in the Temple who would juggle fire. Only this time the fire was not juggled so very perfectly and one of the fireworks ended up in a nearby bush. Soon erupted what will historically be known as the ‘Fire of Happiness’, or as Australians know it – the ‘Bush Fire’.

Very soon the fire brigade wailed their way into Stamford Hill, five engines in all, and with a united effort they managed to put out the raging fire. The heated excitement, of course, drawing hundreds of people from all over the community to the dancing.

But this did not dampen the spirits of the celebrating Jews, or the organizers - Motty Rabin and Nosson Negin. On their advice the music continued to play and with a heightened and unknown spirit the dancing continued with a renewed Chayos - uplifting the spirits of all those present.

‘Fire is a Segulah for wealth’, was Rebbetzin Sudaks response to the ‘disaster’. And indeed, with this added level of fiery happiness – happiness that breaks all boundaries – may we merit to years of spiritual and physical wealth, ultimately leading to the wealth in G-dly knowledge, Kamayim Layom Mechasim, with the coming of Moshiach Tzidkeinu.

Nablus: Bomb explodes prematurely in Hamas car

Wednesday, Oct 22, 2003

One Hamas terrorists was killed and at least two other Palestinians were in a critical condition Wednesday night when a bomb they were carrying in their vehicle exploded in the northern West Bank town of Nablus, Palestinian security sources and witnesses said.

The three Palestinians were driving in a car in the eastern part of the city when the explosion took place shortly after 10pm local time.

The car was totally destroyed. Palestinians named the Hamas terrorist killed as Raad Saad.

Media reports said the men were traveling with at least one weapon and several small explosive devices, saying it was possible that one of the bombs had accidentally detonated.

The IDF said it was aware of the blast, but stressed the army was not involved in the incident.

President Putin Awards Chabad Rabbi Gold Medal

Wednesday, Oct 22, 2003

In celebration of S. Petersburg’s 300th birthday, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin issued a gold medal award to the city’s Chief Rabbi and Chabad-Lubavitch representative, Mendel Pewzner. At a public ceremony last week Petersburg’s Mayor, Mr. Alexander Dmitreivitz presented Rabbi Pewzner with the award on behalf of President Putin.

As he displayed the award to a crowd of hundreds who attended an elaborate ceremony, the Mayor explained that Mr. Putin issued this medal to Petersburg’s chief rabbi on this occasion, in recognition of the rabbi’s activities for the benefit of Petersburg’s Jewish community.

The award presentation and an elegant dinner party that followed, was held in Petersburg’s grand synagogue and attended by numerous dignitaries and public officials.

OHOLEI TORAH HOLDS ANNUAL TZASCHEM LESHOLOM FOR 111 TALMIDAY HASHLUCHIM

Wednesday, Oct 22, 2003

image2988.jpg
On Monday night, Isru Chag, a couple hundred people participated in a Tzaschem Lesholom gathering held in honor of 111 Bochurim from Oholei Torah that are going on Shlichus to 19 communities in the four corners of the world.

The gathering took place in the main ballroom of Oholei Torah @ 667 Eastern Parkway.

The M.C. for the evening was Rabbi Efraim Piekarski, Rosh Yeshiva @ Oholei Torah. Speakers included a number of the Talmiday HaShluchim as well as Rabbi Zushe Wilhelm, principal of the Oholei Torah Mesivta.

During the evening a video of the Rebbe was shown.

Rabbis, M. Morosow, H. Pewzner, S. Roitblatt, Y. Friedman, A. Gerlitzky, E. Piekarski, Z. Vilenken, Segal, N. Shapiro & E. Lesches were all seated on the dais.

The total number of Bochurim going on Shlichus - 111, represented an increase of 5% k"ah from last year when Oholei Torah sent out 106 Bochurim and an increase of 35% from 5761 when they sent out 82 Shluchim.

Following the roll call all assembled formed one massive circle and joyously began singing "From 770....".

Chabad's Sukkah Mobile joins Hong Kong's famous skyline

Wednesday, Oct 22, 2003

image2989.jpg
This year, the Hong Kong's famous skyline had an added feature - Chabad's Sukkah Mobile.

The annual Electronics Fair coincided with Sukkos this year and was attended by quite a number of overseas visitors. Finding time to go to a Sukkah during this busy fair is not easy, so the Sukkah Mobile parked outside the Hong Kong Convention Center was a welcome feature.

The Sukkah Mobile also visited various community members at their offices including the staff of the Israeli Consulate.

Meanwhile, across the border in China the Chabad House of Guangzhou was busy catering to the hundreds of Jews attending the world's largest Trade Show - the Canton Fair.

Since the last fair was cancelled because of SARS, this fair is expected to be very well attended. As always, Chabad will be there to service everyone's Jewish needs

Hundreds of Public School Students Shake the Lulav and Esrog and Experience the Joy of Sukkos

Wednesday, Oct 22, 2003

image2990.jpg
QUEENS, New York - Jewish customs came to life for hundreds of children last week as a Jewish educational organization brought the holiday of Sukkos to students of dozens of public schools around New York.

At one of the schools, I.S. 157, about 70 boys and girls experienced the joy of Sukkot thanks to the Released Time Program of Greater New York. The children visited two nearby synagogues, where they learned about the holiday and lined up to shake the lulav and esrog. Rabbinical student Itche Zalmanov and other rabbinical student-teachers helped the children to say the blessings and spoke with them about the significance of the mitzvah. Released Time also brought children from dozens of other public schools to nearby shuls and Jewish community centers.

Released Time, an arm of the National Committee for the Furtherance of Jewish Education, provides Jewish education, free of charge, to children in the public schools every Wednesday, during the last hour of the school day. The program operates under an early twentieth-century New York law that says that children enrolled in the pubic schools may receive religious instruction one hour a week during the school day, the so-called "Release Hour." Enrollment in the program has reached more than one thousand in recent years, and since its founding, more than a quarter-million children have attended the program. Many of these young people, inspired by their teachers, have gone on to pursue more intensive Jewish study.

"It's a very educational Jewish program, and kids all over New York should join it," said Israel Benjamin, an 8th-grader who has been going to Released Time for the past three years.

"They (the students) wait all week for this," said Mendel Stolik, a rabbinical student who teaches in the program. He explained that one of the students asked him that afternoon "How come we don't make Released Time every day?"

"It's fun. It's exciting. It's educational," Stolik said. Plus, he noted, "kids get prizes, so they're excited."

To learn more about the program, call the Released Time Program office at the National Committee for the Furtherance of Jewish Education at (718) 735-0215.

ERLOYER REBBE CONCLUDES AND BEGINS MISHNAH TORAH IN BRATISLAVA, SLOVAKIA

Wednesday, Oct 22, 2003

image2991.jpg
From the hundreds of annual visitors to the gravesite of the Chasam Sofer on the day of his yarzeit, Tuesday the 25th of Tishrei, over a hundred attended shacharis at the Chabad Center under the directorship of the shliach to Slovakia, Rabbi Baruch Myers. Rabbi Myers is Chief Rabbi of the Jewish Community of Bratislava.

The entourage of guests at the Chabad House was led by the Erloyer Rebbe shlit´a, together with his son, the Rosh Yeshiva of Erloy, and other distinguished Rabbonim. The Erloyer Rebbe is a direct descendant of the Chasam Sofer.

After Shacharis, a siyum was made on Sefer Mishnah Torah of the Rambam. The honor of reading the last halachah from Hilchos Melachim and the first Halachah of Hilchos Yesodei HaTorah was given to the Erloyer Rebbe.

He read both halachos with great feeling as the hushed crowd listened intently. He then continued by reading the first two halachos of chapter two in Yesodei HaTorah, saying that they are connected to the first halachah: whereas the first halachah describes the mitzvah of knowing that that there is a Creator, chapter two describes the mitzvah of meditating upon this knowledge until we are brought to love of Hashem.

A New Signpost In Town

Thursday, Oct 23, 2003

image2992.jpg
Residents of Dix Hills, New York, have a new signpost they use when giving directions. “Just turn right at the Chai Center to get to the library,” they’ll say.

The magnificent new Lubavitch Chai Center is located at a major intersection on the corner of Vanderbilt Parkway and Deer Park Avenue. The 12,000 square foot contemporary building, with a fa?ade of pink brick, is built on a hilltop and is visible from just about everywhere in this booming Long Island community.

Rabbi Yaakov Saacks and his wife Zoey are the directors and the moving force behind the expansion of Chabad in Dix Hills. They arrived in 1993 and began activities in the living room of their home. Growth was inevitable and exponential, and construction on the building began about three years ago.

“We only got our certificate of occupancy this past April,” says Rabbi Saacks, "and we are already out of space. There were about 600 people here for the High Holidays and it was standing room only.” continue...

Chabad's Sukkah On Wheels a Rolling Success!

Thursday, Oct 23, 2003

image2994.jpg
Some Mitzvot are hard to take from person to person, while others are quite simple. Other Mitzvot however, require a little creativity in order to become portable. With the creativity and handiwork of the Margolin boys as well as that of their friends from abroad, the Sukkah became a traveling Mitzvah. The guys were seen hard at work as they banged and banged to get the two Sukkah mobiles ready for the holiday of Sukkot.

The Sukkahs were then outfitted with snacks, tables and chairs and Lulav and Etrog sets. Displaying beautiful signs which read "Chabad*s Sukkah on Wheels", the Sukkah mobiles were sent to bring the beautiful message of Sukkot to Jewish people all over the Tidewater area.

Visiting the Virginia Beach Municipal Center during the sniper trial, the Chabad crew brought messages of G-d*s protection, peace and unity to those covering the trial (they were quoted in three newspapers) as well as to passers by. The Sukkah mobiles brought the joy of Sukkot to residents in nursing homes and assisted living centers across Hampton Roads.

Amongst the schools which were visited by the Sukkah mobiles were, the College of William and Mary and Christopher Newport University, the Hebrew Academy of Tidewater and the United Hebrew school at its locations in Newport News, Virginia Beach and Norfolk, the preschool the JCC in Newport News and Norfolk Collegiate.

At each stop the Sukkah Mobile crews helped visitors say the Bracha over their tasty snack and the Bracha for eating in the Sukkah, and helped them perform the Mitzvah of shaking the Lulav and Etrog. Each group also had the opportunity to learn something new about the holiday of Sukkot.

Along with their visits to schools and nursing homes, the Sukkah mobile was seen parked outside various offices in Newport News, Virginia Beach and Norfolk. A Lunch and Learn was even held in the Sukkah mobile outside some of the offices.

All the members of the Sukkah mobile crew, along with Rabbi Margolin, were given an audience with Virginia Beach mayor, Meyera E. Oberndorf. After visiting with the mayor in her office, the mayor was lead outside to the waiting Sukkah mobile. Rabbi Margolin helped the mayor perform the Mitzvah of shaking the Lulav and Etrog and shared their significance with her, as well as everyone else around. Rabbi Margolin then presented the mayor with a copy of the brand new Chumash Breisheet with an English translation as well as commentary of the Lubavitcher Rebbe. The mayor was deeply touched by the gift and promised to study from the Chumash which she will keep in her office. Towards the end of the televised meeting, the mayor thanked Chabad for coming out to see her and for all of their hard work in the Tidewater area.

A special thanks to Yossi, Mendy, Levi, Shmulie, Yisroly, and Zalmy Margolin, Mendel Yarmush, Yisroel Brashevitzky, Isser Feiglin, Shloimy Ascher and Leibel Garelick.

IDF preparing to dynamite three 13-storey buildings in Gaza

Saturday, Oct 25, 2003

The Israel Defense Forces was temporarily evacuating an estimated 2,000 Palestinians early on Sunday as it prepared to dynamite three partly built 13-storey Palestinian Authority buildings, Israeli security sources said.

The sources said the three buildings overlooked the settlement of Netzarim and were used by militant groups to observe troop movements before launching an attack on the settlement on Friday in which three soldiers were killed, two of them women.

The temporary evacuation order was issued to prevent civilian casualties when the buildings were blown up, the sources said. The explosion was expected to be so loud that Israelis living near the Gaza Strip were likely to hear it.

One security official said plans to demolish the buildings were drawn up about a year ago but the decision to implement them was taken only after Friday's attack, which was claimed by the militant Hamas and Islamic Jihad groups.

"We gave them a chance," the source said. "We expect buildings owned by the Palestinian Authority will not be used for terrorist activities, but after the raid on Friday we saw that we could not let this go on."

The source said the two gunmen behind Friday's attack had spent weeks monitoring patrols and troop movements in the heavily guarded settlement in central Gaza from the towers.

The militants carried out their gunfire and grenade attack as fog shrouded the settlement early on Friday morning. One militant was killed and the other escaped.

Senior security sources said all the several hundred settlers living at Netzarim were taking refuge in bomb shelters until the Gaza buildings had been blown up. They said the demolition would take place in the next few hours.

Hundreds of Israeli troops, including demolition experts and humanitarian liaison officers, were deployed in the operation to evacuate residents living in a 400 meter radius of the three bulidings earmarked for destruction.

Commanders, who were monitoring the situation on live video from a command centre in southern Israel, said the operation was very complex.

Palestinian ambulances were allowed to evacuate elderly people from their homes.

Residents were issued with leaflets in Arabic saying: "You must leave your homes immediately until the end of this operation. The army is going to blow up some sites. Please leave your windows open, turn off electrical devices and go to the southern part of your neighbourhood. Anyone who stays is risking his life. Anyone seen with a weapon will risk his life."

Chabad of Flevoland takes to the streets in Almere, Holland

Saturday, Oct 25, 2003

image2998.jpg
Once again, Chabad of Flevoland had their annual Simchas Bais Hasho'aiva in Almere.

This year's event was BH a great success with a very big turnout (for Dutch standards) of over 150 people. That's quite a improvement to the past years turnout of approximately 50 - 75 people! The credit can perhaps be given to the famous Israeli music band in Holland - called "Or le'Israel" -, who were playing at this event.

The people who were there in the beginning of the event were able to make the beracha on the lulav and esrog.

Later in the evening, people enjoyed the refreshments and (lots of) l'chaim in sukah, as others danced in the closed off street. The amazing atmosphere which was created by this band caused the dancing to go on for many hours longer than we had expected, as the men joyously danced away.

The reactions by the onlookers and the local newspapers were also quite positive, and was BH a big kidush Lubavitch. Let us hope for an even bigger crowd next year

New Gutnick Chumash is Breaking all records

Saturday, Oct 25, 2003

image2365.jpg
The new Gutnick Edition of Sefer Bereishis, containing over two hundred sichos of the Rebbe in beautiful clear English, has broken all records during its first month of sales. “It’s simply beyond all expectations,” said Rabbi Meyer Gutnick, patron of the Kol Menachem foundation which publishes the Chumash. “Over 4000 copies have been sold in the first month, which more than double the speed at which the previous volume was selling at the beginning.”

“We’ve even had to supply some stores twice in one day,” he said. Shluchim say that the Chumash is a big hit with their Ba’alei Batim. It’s got a very nice cover which attracts people to read it, and the text is extrememly clear and interesting. In fact, some Shluchim have been ordering one or two hundred copies of the Chumash.

“It is simply the best written Chumash available today,” wrote one satisfied customer in an email to Kol Menachem this week, “better than Artscroll's Stone edition, better than anything that Feldheim has out, etc. A great blend of Rashi, other Rishonim, Chassidic interpretations, and the Lubavitcher Rebbe.”

SUNDAY: 22ND CYCLE - 3 PEROKIM RAMBAM DAILY BEGINS - DO YOU NEED A MOREH SHIUR?

Sunday, Oct 26, 2003

Sunday the 30th of Tishray marks the beginning of the 22nd cycle for those who learn 3 Perokim Rambam daily.

Lehoir, in the Sicha marking the completion of the first Machzor, Yud Alef Nissan 5745, the Rebbe makes mention that it is a Siyum for those learning the 3 Perokim Layom, then the Rebbe mentions that for those who "for some reason" did not learn 3 Perokim...

It is apparent that the Rebbe wanted all to learn 3 Perokim daily. Today, would be a good day to start.

SHABBOS BEREISHIS 5764 - SALE OF “MITZVOS” NETS $142,000 FOR SHUL

Sunday, Oct 26, 2003

image770.jpg
Many Shluchim from around the world spent Shabbos Bereishis in Crown Heights.

On Friday night there were 3 Sholom Zochors k"ah.

Chazzan Moshe Teleshevsky, kerogil, davened all the Shabbos tefillos @ the Umud downstairs in 770. B”H on Shabbos day the pace of davening was very nice.

Rabbi Mendel Lipskar – South Africa who had Yahrtzeit for his father OBM davened Shachris & Mussaf @ the Umud in the Rebbe's room.

Downstairs before Krias Hatorah they sold the "Mitzvos" for the year. They started selling @ 11:30am and it went on till 12:45pm (15 minutes shorter than last year). Menachem Gerlitzky donned a Shtreimel and began by saying a brief Dvar torah and a couple of stories.

Avrohom Holtzberg, Avrohom Eliyahu Pinson, Yossel Lush & Zalman Lipkser all joined Gerlitzky on the Bima.

The top 2 items were Psichas Haaron for Kol Nidrei & Hagba & Glila. Psichas Kol Nidrei went for $22,000 and was bought by “Yedidaynu, Harav Hachossid, Huroitzeh Be’ilum Shmo...” and Haba & Glila was bought by Avrohom Holtzberg for $18,000.

When all was said and done the sale of the Mitzvos raised lerech jus over $142,000! for the Shul, some 22 thousand more than last year. Many of those who made purchases were announced by Gerlitzky as “Huroitzeh Be’ilum Shmo.

In the Rebbe's room they announced who bought the "Mitzvos" before Mussaf.

P'sichas HaAron all year - Rabbi Binyomin Klein
P'sichas HaAron Kol Nidray & Neila - Chaim Shaul Brook
P'sichas HaAron Rosh HaShana & Yom Kippur - Mendy Gansburg
Chazak for Bereishis & Shemos - Kasriel Shemtov
Chazak for Vayikra & Bamidbar - Hillel Dovid Krinsky
Maftir Yonah - Hillel Dovid Krinsky
Hagba & Glila - Rabbi Don Yoel Levy

There were 4 Chasanim downstairs & 4 in the Rebbe's room. The Mispalelim downstairs thank Rabbi Michoel Slavin for laining at a very nice pace.

Davening, downstairs, ended @ lerech 2:00pm!

There were many Kiddushim including those for the Chasanim held after Davening in 770 and around town for Yungeleit embarking on Shlichus. The Kiddushim went on all afternoon long.

AS CALIFORNIA FIRES RAGE - CHABAD IN S. DIEGO REACHES OUT AND OPEN THEIR DOORS

Sunday, Oct 26, 2003

image3000.jpg
A number or very large wildfires are raging in different parts of California. The fires have already burned hundreds of thousands of acres, turned 500 homes into ashes and killed at least 10 people.

In S. Diego County it is being called "the worst firestorm" in living memory.

With the fires reaching ever closer to many residential neighborhoods, earlier Sunday, Rabbi Yonah Fradkin the Head Shliach in S. Diego and his family, along with hundreds of neighbors, were forced to evacuate their homes.

Fires are also burning out of control in the Scripps Ranch area of S. Diego which is home to the brand new multimillion-dollar Chabad Campus center nestled on 27 acres.

In an exclusive interview via cellphone on Sunday evening with an emotional Rabbi Fradkin he told us that he removed all the Sifrei Torahs from the new campus. Rabbi Fradkin also told us that all 10 Chabad Houses around the county were being opened to the public as emergency shelters and the Shluchim were on hand offering counseling as well as vouchers for lodging.

Everyone is asked to pray for the personal and physical well-being and safety of all S. Diego residents and their homes and properties, in particular please Daven that the new Chabad campus be spared from any damage.

Controlling The World: It’s A Big Job

Sunday, Oct 26, 2003

I wasn’t that upset about what Malaysia President Mahathir Mohammad said last week about the Jews. Actually I think he was kind of right on and his timing was pretty good too. Additionally, even though his comments seemed on the surface to be classic anti-Semitism, by reading the full comments of his address it becomes clear that he was criticizing his Arab brethren more then he was indulging in denouncing Jews in general.

As for his timing----Mohammad’s comments were pretty much in line with the very first Rashi in the Torah where the issue is explored as to why ----if Torah is a book of laws for Jews---that it begins with the description of the intricate details of G-d’s creation of the world. Why not just start the Book of Genesis with the first Mitzvah given to the Jews to observe which is the blessing of the new month. Rashi explains that the reason for starting the biblical narrative with creation is because this is G-d’s world and He runs the place. And as far as the all important accusation by the nations of the world that the Jews are thieves because they have stolen the land of Israel from the nations of the world, by starting the book with creation the message is that everything here is G-d’s creation and he decides who to give the land and who to take it away from and award to someone else—it is He who is in control and perhaps it is G-d who runs the world by proxy. I don’t even thing the outspoken Mr. Mohammad would disagree. continue...

Halacha of the Day -- Mayim Achronim (1)

Sunday, Oct 26, 2003

Before one recites the Birchas HaMozon it is necessary to wash one's hands. This washing is called Mayim Achronim. However, no Brocho is recited upon this washing. (Alter Rebbe's Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 181:1)

However, it is necessary to say Al Naaros Bavel, Lamnatzeiach, Avarcha, or Shir HaMaalos before washing Mayim Achronim. If one forgot to say them before washing, he should still say them and wash Mayim Achronim a second time. (Ktzos HaShulchan 43:1, Badei HaShulchan 1)

When one is benching with a mezumen and using a cup of wine, the wine for Kos Shel Brocho should be poured into the cup before washing Mayim Achronim, so that the washing should be as close to the benching as possible. (A.R.S.A. O.C. 181:6)

One is not permitted to talk, even words of Torah, after washing Mayim Achronim (Seder Netilas Yadaim of the Alter Rebbe and Ktzos Hashulchan 43:1. See also Badei HaShulchan 43:4)

One is permitted to use any type of liquid, except for wine, as Mayim Achronim. (A.R.S.A. O.C. 181:8)

"THE REBBE WATCHES OVER HIS CHILDREN"

Sunday, Oct 26, 2003

On Thursday, October 23rd at about 2:30 pm, my sixteen year old brother Moishe was run over by a speedboat in Mission Bay, S. Diego. He was rushed to Scripps Medical Center in La Jolla, California, the best trauma center in the country. He had serious injuries in his head, arm and vertabrae. The doctors were grim and pressed my parents to hurry the two hour trip to the hospital. My parents sat in the waiting room as three surgeons operated on his skull. They were imagining the worst. Three hours later, the non-Jewish doctor came out amazed and proclaimed, "A miracle has occured before my eyes. I'm not a believer, but G-d must have a master plan for this boy." The propeller of the speed boat had cut through his skull from the left and right, missing a major artery and the chance of brain damage by a mere millimeter. In all the doctor's experience with boating accidents, he had never seen such mild injuries. The miracles don't end there.

After attending to Moishe's head, the doctors operated on his shattered elbow and examined his fractured vertabrae. Again, they were amazed. The bone in his arm was completely shattered, yet the nerve was untouched. The injuries to his lower back, although painful will not have a lasting effect. The doctor stated, "if I were to go to war, I would want Moishe in front of me; he just dodged bullets." After five grueling hours, we were admitted to see him. The first words that came out of his mouth were, "The Rebbe watches over his children. You are looking at a living miracle."

He is only beginning his long road to recovery from this traumatic accident, but we wanted to share this inspiring and miraculous experience that unfolded in front of our eyes.

To conclude, my family would like the thank the Leider family and the S. Diego community from the bottom of our hearts for hosting us during these dire times. My younger brother's bar mitzvah was scheduled that Shabbos in Long Beach and with their help, we transferred the event to S. Diego.

We would also like to thank all those who have davened for my brother's recovery, and please continue to say T'hillim for Moshe Eliyahu ben Chaya Amina Shoshana for a complete and speedy recovery.

Groundbreaking is Sunday for Center for Jewish Life in Mequon

Sunday, Oct 26, 2003

image3001.jpg
Mequon, WI - A Jewish congregation will honor its past and lay the foundation for the future when it breaks ground Sunday on a new $4.5 million facility.

Members of Congregation Agudas Achim Chabad, 2233 W. Mequon Road, will help place the cornerstone for the new Joseph and Rebecca Peltz Center for Jewish Life in a ceremony that begins at 1 p.m. on the campus.

History will be intertwined with the new building, Rabbi Menachem Rapoport said. Several stones to be used in the building, including the cornerstone, are from a synagogue in Izbica, Poland, that was destroyed by Poles shortly after World War II.

That synagogue is significant because survivors of the Holocaust and members of that Izbica congregation, including Rebecca Peltz and her late husband, Joseph, helped start Agudas Achim in Milwaukee in 1952.continue...

Chabad.org Network Status Update

Monday, Oct 27, 2003

Our domain servers, hosted by IDT in New Jersey, experienced a catastrophic failure yesterday at 10:30pm EDT, bringing down our entire family of sites, along with many thousands more, for the duration of the night. Our team worked feverishly with IDT to restore service.

We expect full service to be restored within a few hours.

On behalf of the entire team at Chabad.org, we would like to once again publicly apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused you. Though absolute immunity from this kind of failure is impossible, we are working on long-term solutions to help ensure that this does not happen in the future.

At this time we'd like to publicly recognize the invaluable contribution of Golan ben Oni and his IDT team for their dedicated service to the Chabad.org family.

TOTAL DEVASTATION AND MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR MIRACLE” @ AT SCRIPPS RANCH CHABAD IN S. DIEGO

Monday, Oct 27, 2003

Hundreds of families in S. Diego county are waking up to a very bitter morning with the news that their homes and all their belongings were lost in the terrible wildfires that are still burning.

@ the brand new 27 acre Chabad campus the situation is bittersweet.

Early Monday morning Rabbis Yona Fradkin of Chabad of S. Diego and Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein of Chabad of Poway, were escorted by the police to assess the damages of the newly built 25 million dollar Chabad Hebrew Academy campus. The visit was arranged by the Mayor of S. Diego.

Upon entering into the Scripps ranch community, fire was still burning from both sides of the road, entering into the "Chabad Center driveway" and they were totally devastated to see that the "old School" which was currently still in use and consisting of 20 modular trailers were totally destroyed, disintegrated to ashes. Sadly the school, playgrounds, Shul and headquarters office etc. were all in ashes too!

The new school was totally untouched! No damage whatsoever got to the new buildings the inferno of the "old School" trailers that were a mere 20 feet away did not as much as a scar to the new building, B"H.

The two Rabbis walked through and surveyed all the classrooms, Shul and all the surrounding areas and they found that the electricity was still on, only one outdoor fire sprinkler went off due to the intense heat.

All construction equipment and supplies remained in perfect condition.

Rabbi & Mrs. Fradkins personal home, although its back yard was up in flames was not damaged. They walked into the home, turned on the lights and had a Lechaim, thanking Hashem for this incredible miracle on this day of Rosh Chodesh.

A special taskforce has been put in place to expedite the occupancy of the new school buildings as soon as possible.

Chabad of Poway offered the school to use their facility in Poway until they can occupy the new building.

May we merit to report ONLY good news.

Driven to Help Save Lives - Couple gives Israel ambulance

Monday, Oct 27, 2003

At first glance it might seem strange to see a group of Port Washington residents, including a rabbi, dance the hora in front of an ambulance. But the blue writing on the door of the white vehicle told the reason why they were celebrating yesterday:

"Presented to all the people of Israel with deep appreciation by Jennie and Jack Sussman."

"When you turn on the TV, what do you see?" asked Jack Sussman, 78, of Great Neck. "Bombings. When you turn on the radio, what do you hear? Bombings. Me and my wife were discussing, what can we do? We decided why not give an ambulance."

Sussman stressed that he wants the $60,000 ambulance to be a gift to all the people - Jews, Muslims, Christians and others. About 100 people attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony, hosted by the Chabad of Port Washington, which the Sussmans attend.

The ambulance, which will be operated by Israel's public ambulance service, Magen David Adom, required five months to build, and will take three weeks to be transported by container ship to Haifa, Israel. From that point, it will most likely be moved to an urban area.

The emergency vehicle is equipped with three orange gurneys, cardiac defibrillators, blood components and special trauma kits, and can deflect bullets with its reinforced sides.

"Most people die in a suicide bombing from hemorrhaging to death, from the nails from the bombs," said Ira Mogitz, director of development for the American Red Magen David for Israel. "The trauma kits will help."

U.S. foundations and private citizens such as the Sussmans are the biggest suppliers of ambulances to Israel, Mogitz said. The Magen David Adom operates 571 vehicles across the country, helping 231,000 patients each year.

"Today we were wishing each other that by the time this reaches Israel, there will be peace," said the Chabad's Rabbi Shalom M. Paltiel. "At the same time, we have to be ready just in case it's needed."

Adaptation helps diners enjoy Jewish holiday

Monday, Oct 27, 2003

Portable sukkah at restaurants allows faithful to commemorate exodus from ancient Egypt

Being a good businessman means catering to customers' needs, said Chao Lin, owner of Lin's Kosher Chinese Kitchen on South Main Street in Manville.

That's why the native of China asked the Chabad House of Somerset County to park its mobile sukkah outside his restaurant for several evenings last week during the Jewish holiday of Sukkot. Customers were invited to eat their meal in the wooden sukkah, a walled hut with the appropriate roof, or schach, made of naturally growing materials.

Diners could also eat in the plastic sukkah that Mr. Lin bought himself. It stood in a parking space just behind the Chabad hut outside his business. continue...

ASIC ends investigation into Centaur black hole

Monday, Oct 27, 2003

The Australian Securities and Investments Commission's costly 14-month investigation into insolvent trading in Joseph Gutnick's collapsed nickel and gold group Centaur Mining & Exploration has come to nothing.

ASIC said the decision to drop its investigation followed a review of a mountain of material, and was made after consultation with the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions.

Mr Gutnick said yesterday the decision was "good news for me". He said the outcome was gratifying and he would now focus on his continuing listed gold exploration interests.

Mr Gutnick said Centaur's collapse in March 2001 was an "unfortunate thing in my career". Creditors were left facing losses of more than $700 million.

"I can't do much about it now," Mr Gutnick said. He lamented the fact that when Centaur went under, the nickel price was $US1.80 a pound. The price has recently surged to more than $US5. "That makes a big difference in your margins," he said.

Mr Gutnick first heard about ASIC's decision to drop the investigation from the media yesterday morning, with ASIC informing him by a letter found later at his solicitor's office.

ASIC launched its investigation in August last year after Centaur's liquidators raised concerns. The liquidators claimed directors allowed the company to trade for at least three months and incur $36 million in unsecured debt when they should have known it was insolvent.

Mr Gutnick had previously rejected the accusation of insolvent trading, saying Centaur had relied on advice from high-quality external advisers.

Nshei Chabad of New England celebrate Siyum HaRambam

Monday, Oct 27, 2003

History was made Shabbos afternoon in New England, when the Neshei Chabad of New England had their Siyum HaRambam.

Every Shabbos afternoon some 40 to 60 women gather at the Chabad House in Springfield Massachusetts for the famous Women's Torah Class, led by Mrs. Leah Edelman, wife of Rabbi Dovid Edelman.

This past Shabbos, Mrs. Ester Kosofsky (A Shlucha in Springfield) made her very own Siyum HaRambam (having learned 1 Perek daily for the last 3 years) on behalf of all the women. The event was attended by all the regulars as well as many others from throughout the community.

RABBI YOEL KAHAN FARBRENGS IN LAKEWOOD

Monday, Oct 27, 2003

image3003.jpg
On Wednesday night, Chol hamoed Sukkos, hundreds gathered in the Chabad of Lakewood Sukkah to Farbreng with Rabbi Yoel Kahan.

The event was undoubtedly the most successful Lubavitch function to date in Lakewood. Shmuel Rabinowitz, head of Lubavitch of Lakewood felt that this was the right time to ask Reb Yoel to come down. The secret is out. Posters were placed throughout Lakewood and a huge crowd responded. The Farbrengen featured a crowd that was a mixture of Shtrimelach and Litvisher Yidden that were literally mesmerized by Reb Yoel. By the time the Farbrengen began at 10:00pm, the Chabad parking lot was full of cars that had come to greet Reb Yoel. The Farbrengen went on until the wee hours of the night/morning.

When Rabinowitz along with Shaya Fogel and Efraim Melcer started the shul a little over a year ago they never envisioned that it would take off in this manner. All of Lakewood is aware that the Shul has outgrown its space. Rabinowitz is heading the campaign to build a new Shul of 2500 sq. ft. The new shul is being added to the already existing Mikva which was recently built in accordance with all of the Lubavitcher customs.

The recent splash that Lubavitch of Lakewood has made can be seen as a sign that there can be peace among Klal Yisroel. Rabinowitz promised his brother (Duvi Rabinowitz) who is the Baal Musaf at Chabad of Lakewood for the Yoimim Noiraim that next year he will be davening in the new building.

The hope is that the more the Lakewood crowd is exposed to Chassidus the more people will start coming to the shiurim being given by Rabbi Nochum Greenwald.

At. L.A. synagogue, congregants struggle with effects of wildfires

Tuesday, Oct 28, 2003

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 28 (JTA) — By phone, e-mail and word-of-mouth, the bad news kept piling up at Congregation Emanu El in San Bernardino, Calif.

The homes of six member families had been burned to the ground in the devastating wildfires sweeping across Southern California. Another 30-40 families from the congregation had been forced to evacuate their homes, and no one knew the whereabouts of eight other families.

Rabbi Douglas Kohn, spiritual leader at the Reform congregation, was at the point of utter exhaustion.

"I haven´t slept more than 10 hours since Shabbat," he said Monday evening. CONTINUE READING FOR CHABAD MENTION...

Halacha of the Day -- Mayim Achronim (2)

Tuesday, Oct 28, 2003

Since the reason that wine may not be used for Mayim Achronim is due to its importance and distinction (it is used for Kiddush and other mitzvos), it would seem that the same prohibition would apply to grape juice as well.

Although according to Halacha, women also need to wash Mayim Achronim, nowadays women do not take care to wash Mayim Achronim. (Piskei Teshuvos Vol. 2, 181:1)

One should not use very hot water for Mayim Achronim. Regarding water which is not very hot, the accepted custom is to be lenient and allow its use. (A.R.S.A. O.C. 181:3)

One who does not have any water (or other permitted liquids) for Mayim Achronim is permitted to bentch without washing and later (after benching) when he comes across water, he should wash his hands. (Mishna Brura 181:2). Nevertheless, he should clean his hands by rubbing it on a stone, earth or any other substance (Kaf Hachayim 181:7). Likewise, if one forgot to wash his hands before Bircas HaMozon, he should wash them after Bircas HaMozon. (Shulchan HaSholom 76:7)

“The Adventures of Agent Emes” gets ‘Four Stars’ FROM Tzivos Hashem

Tuesday, Oct 28, 2003

image2932.jpg
Take a walk down Kingston Ave and you will come across a sign on the front of the Tzivos Hashem bookstore, which reads “Agent Emes. Our rating: 4 STARS. It’s super”.

What is all the excitement about?

Agent Emes is the first studio-quality, live action adventure series that entertains and educates children at the same time.

Here’s what a shliach in North Carolina had to write:
“Agent Emes' Fish Head adventure is just what our kids need! I played it for my students and they were enthralled with it. They thought Agent Emes was "so cool".
It is so professional, very humorous and really entertaining! Our little kids (6, 4 and even 18 months!) are singing "Secret Agent Emes...." and can't watch it enough.”

Right now, Reel Jewish Entertainment, the producers of Agent Emes, are offering free shipping on web-based orders.

Feldman reclaims Sydney Yeshiva’s headquarters

Tuesday, Oct 28, 2003

A SURPRISE announcement by Yeshiva College Rabbi Pinchus Feldman that significant Flood Street properties in Bondi, including the Yeshiva Synagogue, have been repurchased has been met with a mixed response.

According to Rabbi Feldman, contracts with the developer — who acquired the properties from Joseph Gutnick for $6.5 million two months ago — were exchanged for the majority of the Flood Street campus last Friday for $9.5 million.

The properties include the Beit Avraham Synagogue, the former site of the Yeshiva Boys High School, a vacant lot and a dormitory at 55 Angelsea Street, but not the Adler Building.

The funds for the purchases reportedly came from California-based Rabbi Boruch Shlomo Cunin, director of West Coast Chabad Lubavitch, who will hold the properties in trust.

Rabbi Cunin has promised that the synagogue would be returned to the community, Rabbi Feldman said, while the remaining properties “have been optioned by various developers”. He stressed that neither he nor the Yeshiva has bought the properties.

OVER 500 ON HAND AS CHABAD OF GREAT HARTFORD, CT CELEBRATES 27 YEARS

Tuesday, Oct 28, 2003

More than 500 people including many Shluchim attended the grand celebration at the dinner of Chabad of Greater Hartford Connecticut, which is under the directorship of Rabbi Joseph Gopin. The impressive crowd included a vast cross-section of the community and its leadership. The atmosphere was one of joy, as guests greeted each other with shouts of "Mazel Tov", celebrating 27 years of Chabad in Hartford, and the closing of the mortgage on the Chabad House.

Highlights of the evening included the presentation of the "Cornerstone Award" to Mr. David T. Chase and greetings from Chabad Headquarters by Rabbi Yehuda Krinsky, a New England native.

The keynote speaker for the evening, Connecticut senator Chris Dodd, was held up by important business in Washington, but he sent a representative who spoke about the need for America to give Israel the strongest support in this time.

The honorees, representing three generations of Chabad supporters, roasted and toasted Rabbi and Mrs. Gopin for the wonderful people they are, and what they do for the community. In the words of one honoree "I never had a Bar Mitzvah celebration, and when I first met Rabbi Gopin, I hardly knew anything about Judaism. Now, however, I know that there are eleven major holidays in the Jewish calendar, each requiring another donation!"

Attendees committed to continue their support for Chabad.

GRATITUDE WITH ATTITUDE, A SHABBAT WEEKND FOR TEENAGE GIRLS

Tuesday, Oct 28, 2003

This coming month, Jewish high school girls ages 15-18 from across the nation are invited to a unique Shabbaton weekend with Rabbi Manis Friedman and a team of spirited counselors.

“Gratitude with Attitude” will run November 28-30 (Thanksgiving weekend, Friday morning through Sunday night) on the Rosenhaus Estate in Morristown, New Jersey. Featuring learning with Manis Friedman, great activities and crafts, a wild workout, workshops and more, the weekend will focus on the attitude of gratitude.

Bais Chana’s programs for teens, piloted in 1991, are one of the richest, most positive Jewish events offered for Jewish teenage girls today. Listening to the girls talk about this past summer underscores why, and how profound – and fun – an experience it is.

“I learned so much and made so many new friends,” Shaindel from New Jersey wrote, “the lessons we learned can help us forever.” For Chana of Queens, NY, who “came on a whim” because her mother wanted her to, “Bais Chana was totally nonjudgmental and completely accepting. It was an unexpected awesome experience, great for any Jewish girl who is open-minded and wants to learn and have a great time while she’s doing it.” At the end of the summer, Allison from Avon, Connecticut, wrote, “I got to meet girls from so many different backgrounds and different levels…Coming here gave me a real appreciation for being Jewish and living Jewishly.” Summing it all up, Mara from Duluth, MN, attending for her second summer enthused, “You learn a ton and have a blast!”

For information on fees and to register for the weekend, contact Bais Chana Women International, 800-473-4801, or email to: info@baischana.orgabout special rates for sisters and friends. Shluchim, contact us for group rates.

JEWISH COMMUNITY OF BIROBIDJAN ASKS FOR HELP

Tuesday, Oct 28, 2003

BIROBIDJAN, RUSSIA - Chief Rabbi of Birobidjan Mordechai Sheiner and the chairman of the Jewish Religious Community “Freid” Lev Toitman appealed to the Russian and foreign Jewry asking for an assistance in construction of the first ever synagogue in Birobidjan that would also include a Jewish Sunday school and a soup kitchen.

The project, total cost of $560,000, still lacks $150,000 to be completed. Major part of the funds has been contributed by the FJC Russia, Joint, and a number of businessmen of Moscow, S. Petersburg and Birobidjan.

In light of the fact that the Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Israeli Premier Ariel Sharon are to take part in the synagogue inauguration ceremony next year, local authorities agreed to allot $112,000 to the construction of a synagogue. Thus, it will be the first synagogue partly built with the state money.

Seven suicide bombings thwarted in past week

Wednesday, Oct 29, 2003

In the past ten days, the Shin Bet and IDF forces succeeded in thwarting seven potential suicide bomb attacks in Israel, including a double suicide bomb attack that was to have taken place in Beit She'an, and a car bomb attack in Israel.

The security establishment registered 41 warnings of plans by terrorists to perpetrate attacks on Wednesday, a security official told The Jerusalem Post, noting that the majority of the warnings received related to potential suicide bomb attacks.

"People should not be misguided by the supposed calm," the official said, noting that the terrorist infrastructure in the West Bank continues in its efforts to launch attacks against Israeli citizens.

On October 19, security forces arrested two senior terrorist commanders affiliated with the Islamic Jihad and Tanzim who were described by officials as 'ticking bombs'. The two, Said Zid and Yakub Jawadra were planning to perpetrate an imminent suicide bomb attack in Beit She'an and later disclosed to security officials the whereabouts of the two explosive belts, each weighing ten kilos they planned to use in the attack.

On October 20, Fares Abu Hamda, a Palestinian teenager affiliated with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and described by security officials as a " potential attacker" was arrested in the Askar refugee camp in Nablus.

A day later near Kibbutz Nahal Oz, IDF forces shot a number of terrorists attempting to infiltrate members of their cell into Israel to perpetrate attacks.

In Hebron, On October 22, IDF forces arrested Imad Natsche and Wajah Abu Shama, members of the Islamic Jihad who they spotted hiding in a car parked next to Natsche's home. Troops shot and killed Tanzim fugitive A-Khadi Natsche spotted fleeing from Imad's house.

Basem Natsura an Islamic Jihad fugitive was arrested in Kalkilya by security forces and revealed plans to smuggle a car rigged with explosives into Israel.

Sami Jeradat, an Islamic Jihad commander was arrested in Silat A Hartiyah and was involved in the plotting of suicide bomb attacks including the attack at the Maxim restaurant earlier this month in which 22 Israelis were killed and scores wounded.

Officials said Jeradat was also involved in the planning of additional attacks against Israelis. In the same village security forces also arrested Iman Jeradat who assisted Sami in the planning.

Ahmed Hamis a senior PFLP commander was shot and killed while evading arrest by security forces in Kalkilya. Officials said Hamis was involved in plotting and planning shooting and bomb attacks against Israeli vehicles traveling on roads in the area and was also involved in attempts to launch suicide and shooting attacks against Israelis on the seam line border.

In the village of Rai' security forces arrested Mohammed Melahem a member of the Islamic Jihad who was involved in tracking down and recruiting two potential suicide bombers willing to perpetrate attacks on behalf of the Islamic Jihad.

In Ramallah, security forces arrested Osama Braham, an Islamic Jihad commander and bomb expert, who operates in the Tulkarm area and was visiting in the city.

During his investigation it was revealed that he prepared a number of bombs and smuggled potential suicide bombers on behalf of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine into Ramallah.

Maimonides Celebrations Worldwide

Wednesday, Oct 29, 2003

BROOKLYN, NY — Wednesday, October 29, 2003 - Jewish students, scholars and laymen worldwide have just begun a new cycle of daily study in Maimonides’ Mishneh Torah and Sefer Hamitzvot. The tradition to complete the study of Maimonides’ magnum opus on Jewish law in the course of one year, by studying portions of it every day, was instituted by the Rebbe twenty-one years ago.

Celebrations were held worldwide marking the completion of several cycles of study of Maimonidean texts: twenty-one years of study of three chapters daily, and seven years of study of one chapter daily of Maimonides Mishne Torah. The celebrations also marked the completion of the twenty-first cycle of the daily study of Maimonides's Sefer Hamitzvot.

One major celebration took place in Paris, where some 2,000 people gathered for a festive siyum-celebration, in which, traditionally, the study cycle is completed and immediately begun again.

Author asks for balance in criticisms of Mideast

Wednesday, Oct 29, 2003

Columbus- Jewish student groups kicked off a campaign of campus activism at Ohio State University yesterday, 10 days before the start of a controversial pro-Palestinian conference at the school.

The event featured Alan Dershowitz, author, lawyer and Harvard University professor, and attracted about 1,000 students and guests.

"There is a double standard against supporters of Israel," Dershowitz said in an interview.

"I have no problem with criticisms of Israel. What I have a problem with is criticism of Israel without criticism of the Palestinians," said Dershowitz, whose latest book is called "The Case for Israel."

"All we want students to do is to hear both sides," he said.

The Jewish groups, led by OSU Chabad House, named 56 student ambassadors who will spend the next year learning about Israel, and how to be advocates for it, said Rabbi Areyah Kaltmann, executive director of OSU Chabad House.

Kaltmann said the campaign was planned before the pro-Palestinian conference, scheduled for Nov. 7-9. But, he said, the conference has added a sense of urgency to the pro-Israel campaign.

"There are many misconceptions about Israel, unfortunately," Kaltmann said. "These ambassadors will be armed with the proper information."

The dispute over the nature of the pro-Palestinian conference is as intractable as the Middle East conflict. Many Jewish groups believe the conference will be anti-Semitic, attended by Palestinian supporters who refuse to denounce terrorism.

The conference organizers, Palestine Solidarity Movement, argue it will be an education conference about the hardships of life under Israeli military occupation. The conference, which is expected to attract students from across the country, is being sponsored locally by the Committee for Justice in Palestine, a registered student group at Ohio State.

Naleh Saleh, a member of the Committee for Justice in Palestine, said she welcomes debate with pro-Israel groups.

"I'm sure there will be counter-protesters at the conference, and they have the right to do that, as long as it's peaceful," said Saleh, an OSU graduate student. "We value free speech and discussion on any campus."

Several Jewish groups have criticized school officials for allowing the conference. But Dershowitz said he supports the right of pro-Palestinian students to hold the conference, even though he disagrees with their views.

GRATITUDE WITH ATTITUDE, A SHABBAT WEEKEND FOR TEENAGE GIRLS

Wednesday, Oct 29, 2003

This coming month, Jewish high school girls ages 15-18 from across the nation are invited to a unique Shabbaton weekend with Rabbi Manis Friedman and a team of spirited counselors.

“Gratitude with Attitude” will run November 28-30 (Thanksgiving weekend, Friday morning through Sunday night) on the Rosenhaus Estate in Morristown, New Jersey. Featuring learning with Manis Friedman, great activities and crafts, a wild workout, workshops and more, the weekend will focus on the attitude of gratitude.

Bais Chana’s programs for teens, piloted in 1991, are one of the richest, most positive Jewish events offered for Jewish teenage girls today. Listening to the girls talk about this past summer underscores why, and how profound – and fun – an experience it is.

“I learned so much and made so many new friends,” Shaindel from New Jersey wrote, “the lessons we learned can help us forever.” For Chana of Queens, NY, who “came on a whim” because her mother wanted her to, “Bais Chana was totally nonjudgmental and completely accepting. It was an unexpected awesome experience, great for any Jewish girl who is open-minded and wants to learn and have a great time while she’s doing it.” At the end of the summer, Allison from Avon, Connecticut, wrote, “I got to meet girls from so many different backgrounds and different levels…Coming here gave me a real appreciation for being Jewish and living Jewishly.” Summing it all up, Mara from Duluth, MN, attending for her second summer enthused, “You learn a ton and have a blast!”

For information on fees and to register for the weekend, contact Bais Chana Women International, 800-473-4801, or email to: info@baischana.orgabout special rates for sisters and friends. Shluchim, contact us for group rates.

S. DIEGO, CALIFORNIA RABBI YONAH FRADKIN PUTS THE PEN TO PAPER AS HE DESCRIBES THE CURRENT SITUATION

Wednesday, Oct 29, 2003

image3005.jpg
October 28, 2003
Scripps Ranch
Chabad Headquarters

Dear Friends,

The age of miracles, we've just learned first hand, isn't past. It's still with us. As smoke clears from the horrific fires and we work to piece our routines back together, it's impossible to fathom any sense, or even any pattern, to what has occurred. And that is nowhere more true than in Scripps Ranch.

Our leafy suburb has leapt to the headlines of newspapers around the world, with hundreds of families -- among them several dear friends of all of ours -- left homeless. And Chabad of San Diego County headquartered in Scripps Ranch, set in the community's very heart in many senses of the word, has been dealt a body blow, as ours is the only school and apparently one of the only houses of worship in San Diego County to be destroyed.

For those who have not seen our site, let me describe it. The deep, rolling ravine we are perched on is blackened. The stands of grey-green eucalyptus trees are stripped and withered. The gentle rolling hills spilling well behind us are charred beyond recognition.

The collection of trailers that has served us as a splendid temporary home is gone. Burned down to the very ground. Not even traces remain of the bright preschool classrooms, the well-stocked computer lab, and the rapidly growing library. Or the Shul that was filled nearly to bursting just a few weeks ago as we marked together as a single large family, the holidays that move us through the early autumn.

But amid this trail of destruction true miracles have occurred.

There was, thank G-d, no loss of life or serious injury in our area. And our beautiful new facility, carefully designed to set a new world standard for Jewish education, has somehow emerged largely unscathed.

Despite some minor water damage and windows shattered from the fire's heat, it stands quite literally as a beacon of what lies ahead. The contrast between its bold colors and gentle curves, and the adjacent lifeless ash and crumbled tree trunks is hard to reconcile.

Buoyed by this act of mercy, we are working hard to determine how best to meet our immediate objectives. They are: accelerating our move into the new facility, which had originally been set for year end; obtaining a new temporary home and supplies to tide us over until the move; and rushing forward as soon as is humanly possible with the education of our children and servicing the community.

While we are making excellent progress, it is still unclear for now when each of these objectives will be met. We will, however, keep you informed every step of the way and request your patience in the days ahead as our plans takes shape.

Although we have insurance to cover part of our loss and will be applying for governmental assistance as it becomes available, it is clear that we have many uncovered losses. A task force has been established to help us push forward.

We will, with immediate effect, be on-site throughout the day to service the needs of the community and by mid day Wednesday, October 29, our telephone numbers -- (Chabad Hebrew Academy) 858.566.1996 and (Chabad Headquarters) 858.547.0076 -- will be up and running.

This Shabbat we will be holding special services Friday night at 6 PM and Saturday at 10 am in gratitude for G-d's tremendous miracles that we have lived through.

We are truly appreciative of the tremendous outpouring of love and support from the entire community. In particular, Councilman Brian Mainshein, his entire staff, the fire department, police department and our heroic neighbors have been extraordinarily generous and helpful during this terrible time. We truly owe a deep debt of gratitude to them for all of their efforts on the behalf of our entire community.

It is our duty, especially at times like these, to do all we can to fan the miracles that have been bestowed upon us, and to help them spread across the landscape, lighting the landscape with a glow of healing kindness.

Specialists OB/GYN’s share Jewish thoughts and ideas with expert Rabbi Sholom B. Chaikin

Wednesday, Oct 29, 2003

image3006.jpg
HOUSTON, TX– What are a group of obstetricians, gynecologists and a perinatologist doing in a room with an expert Rabbi? They have come together to discuss and share ideas about Jewish laws of Family Purity as they are related to women’s health.

On Sunday, October 26, Rabbi Sholom Ber Chaikin of Cleveland, Ohio – an internationally sought out resource for patients and their physicians – chaired this meeting bringing to light and clarifying the sensitivities and needs Jewish women may have when receiving medical care.

The objective of this meeting sponsored by Mikveh Taharas Yisroel and Chabad House at Texas Medical Center, was to create smoother medical experiences for patients and their physicians in a complete form of healing and consultation. Doctors Karolina Adam, perinatologist (maternal fetal medicine specialist), Damla Dryden and Mark Gottesman, obstetricians and gynecologists, who are all concerned physicians for their patients’ comfort and health, shared their observations and opinions on an array of subjects. “Seemingly routine examinations can now be addressed with more sensitivity by us and our offices”, remarks Dr. Mark Gottesman. “They now have more significance as we recognize the special implications these procedures have when involving observant women; it was truly enlightening”.

The matters and concerns entertained varied from childbirth to infertility, along with more common medical procedures. Medical instruments were also on hand to ensure clarity and comprehension of the ideas discussed. Practical conclusions were reached to provide optimum medical care for women who adhere to the Torah’s principles of Jewish family life, the laws of Family Purity.

Serving the needs of the medical community for over 15 years, this is only one of the many programs offered by the Chabad House at Texas Medical Center. They also provide an array of assistance to patients and their families who visit the Texas Medical Center, including counseling, housing, kosher food and pastoral visitations.

The meeting followed a full day refresher seminar with Rabbi Chaikin in the laws and insights on Family Purity. Rabbi Chaikin is a renowned expert in the laws of family purity and directs and teaches the Machon L’Chassanim, a preparatory course for future married men, attracting hundreds of students from around the world every year.

MAJOR DOUBLE-ATTACK THWARTED

Thursday, Oct 30, 2003

Permitted for publication this morning: A double suicide attack in Beit She'an was thwarted early last week. IDF forces arrested two wanted terrorists, each of them with an 11-kilogram explosives vest in his possession.

The two terrorists had been wanted for their roles in several shooting attacks - in one of which a Bezeq worker was murdered - as well as enlisting suicide attackers. Residents of the Jenin area in the northern Shomron, the two are senior members of the Islamic Jihad terrorist organization. The security forces also prevented five other terrorist attacks last week.

Dr. Valery Weisbrodt of the northern Shomron community of Kadim, who was seriously wounded in a Palestinian terrorist shooting attack yesterday afternoon on his way home, is still listed in serious condition. His condition has stabilized, however, after two operations by top mouth-and-jaw specialists in Haifa's Rambam Hospital. His wife was more lightly hurt, and another passenger was treated for shock. This was the third time terrorists have shot at Dr. Weisbrodt's car, but a colleague of his told Arutz-7 today that the doctor was not afraid to travel the roads. Arutz-7's morning host Amatzia Eitan noted that the public radio stations this morning did not even mention yesterday's shooting attack.

A similar attack occurred this afternoon near Tul Karem, east of Netanya, against a vehicle of the Society for the Preservation of Nature in Israel. No one was hurt in the attempted murder, though bullets hit and damaged the car.

Arutz-7's Kobi Finkler reported this morning, in his daily security briefing, that several Israeli cars were damaged last night on both Route 443 and the Hevron-Gush Etzion highway in Arab rock-throwing attacks. In Shechem, an Arab who hurled a firebomb at IDF forces was shot and killed. A Kassam rocket landed near a kibbutz in the northern Negev, and several incidents of shooting at IDF positions in Judea, Samaria and Gaza were recorded. The security forces received 41 terrorist warnings today. Despite this, 4,000 Arab workers were allowed into pre-'67 Israel, in addition to 1,500 workers who entered Atarot, north of Jerusalem.

Coalition Backing Crown Heights Candidate

Thursday, Oct 30, 2003

Letitia James receiving broad black and Jewish support in bid for slain councilman’s seat.

A Jewish political group in Crown Heights has endorsed third-party candidate Letitia James over a member of their own chasidic community, Abraham Wasserman, in what could be the city’s most dramatic City Council race next week.

The nod from the Crown Heights Jewish Political Action Committee helps solidify a broad coalition backing James, an African American who has been endorsed by a wide range of politicians from Brooklyn Rep. Major Owens, former Bronx Borough President Fernando Ferrer and former state Comptroller H. Carl McCall to McCall’s successor, Alan Hevesi, Queens Councilwoman Melinda Katz and former Mayor Ed Koch.

James, running on the Working Families ballot, faces Wasserman on the Conservative line, Republican Anthony Herbert and Democrat Geoffrey Davis. Davis is seeking to fill the seat held by his brother, James, who was murdered by a rival on July 23.

The Crown Heights PAC endorsed Wasserman in the 2001 race won by James Davis. This time around, the group says it is impressed with James’ work with different segments of a diverse community that picked up a reputation — undeserved, to most residents — for racial strife in the early 1990s.

“[James] has helped our community on a lot of different issues” as an aide to Assemblyman Roger Green and Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, said Hanina Sperlin, chairman of the Crown Heights PAC.

Jews are believed to cast about 10 percent of the vote in the district.

Sperlin said the 15 members of his committee met with Geoffrey Davis but decided that, despite their close bond with the slain councilman, “He cannot feel that this seat belongs to him because it belonged to his brother.”

Davis has made statements that he wants to continue his brother’s warm relationship with the district’s Jewish community and pro-Israel activism, but Sperlin said “he doesn’t come across as someone you can trust.”

The initial widespread support for Davis began to dissipate late this summer as reports emerged about his criminal record. Many Council members have stood by him, however, out of apparent respect for their slain colleague. The four-way race is widely seen as a contest between Davis and James, who came within about 900 votes of winning the seat in 2001. Wasserman drew 1,754 votes out of more than 14,000 in 2001.

On Tuesday Wasserman declined to address the PAC’s endorsement of his opponent, but said he still believed he had “a large base of support, not only in Crown Heights but in other areas of the 35th District.”

Weprin Center for Jewish Life and Learning

Thursday, Oct 30, 2003

image3007.jpg
DAYTON, OHIO — Wednesday, October 29, 2003

Rabbi Nachum and Devorah Mangel, directors of the Chabad Center of Greater Dayton couldn’t believe their good fortune.

After ten years of working out of cramped storefront quarters, they had more than outgrown the space and were desperately seeking a permanent location.

Rabbi Mangel recalls the day about two years ago when the chairman of Chabad's advisory board, Dr. Dan German, asked him where in the city he would like to be. "I told him that it would be nice if we could be in Oakwood which is centrally located between the north and south Jewish communities of Dayton. And I particularly liked one specific corner where there was a Unitarian Fellowship building.”

Seizing the opportunity, Dr. German immediately drove over to the Unitarian building and walked in on what looked like a meeting in progress. He asked them whether they would consider selling the building and they said "Yes, that’s precisely what our meeting is about right now." CONTINUE...

Crown Heights resident and world renowned philanthropist Rabbi Meyer Gutnick recently met with Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon in the PM's Jerusalem office.

Gutnick took advantage of the meeting to present Sharon with a copy of the newly released Gutnick Edition of Chumash Bereishis.

Gutnick told SNS that he spoke to Sharon very strongly about Shleimus Ha'aretz. "At the end of the conversation, I respectfully asked him why he was doing everything opposite of what the Rebbe had told him" Gutnick said.

Sharon did not respond to this question. He just sat silent and put down his head.

Chabad Rabbis Help Celebrate Passing of Canada's Holocaust Memorial Bill

Thursday, Oct 30, 2003

image3009.jpg
Less than a week after Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad received a standing ovation from the leaders of fifty seven Muslim states for claiming that "Today the Jews rule this world by proxy", Canada's Parliament passed a rare all party motion commemorating the Holocaust.

"It's extremely gratifying that the Bill to "Establish Holocaust Memorial Day" was passed unanimously by Canada's Parliament", said Rabbi Chaim Mendelsohn, Director, Chabad of Centrepointe. "While we would have liked it sooner, the timing of this bill was wonderful."

At the press conference following the bill's passing Auschwitz survivor, Nate Leipciger, drew a clear comparison between the Holocaust and today's rising anti-Semitism. "Those remarks [by Mahathir Mohamad] are very reminiscent of 1938 when Hitler was talking about the fact that the Jews are a scourge to the world and they must be eliminated." CONTINUE...

Troops arrest Hamas fugitive, foil suicide bombing

Saturday, Nov 01, 2003

A Hamas fugitive arrested by Shin Bet and IDF forces of the armored corps in the village Hizme near Jerusalem on Thursday, admitted to investigators that he planned to perpetrate a suicide bomb attack in Israel.

He also disclosed the location of the explosives belt he planned to use in the attack, which was hidden underneath the bed of his baby daughter in his home.

Security forces who searched the suspect's home, found the belt and blew it up.

Details of the arrest were released by the Shin Bet and IDF on Saturday.

Officials said they could not confirm that the suspect planned to perpetrate the attack in Jerusalem but said the proximity of the village where the suspect is from makes it most likely that he had planned to perpetrate the attack in the capital.

REPAIRS IN NIZHNY NOVGOROD

Saturday, Nov 01, 2003

NIZHNY NOVGOROD – Just in time for the recent start of the school year, Ohr Avner School of Nizhny Novgorod finished repairs in preparation for the new academic year.

The synagogue, too, is undergoing major repairs: the new mikvah built in the synagogue a year ago promises to be one of the most beautiful in Russia.

Its ritual pool will be framed with glass paintings and the ceiling will be built in Magen David form. The mikva will be equipped with jetted baths, multi-level showers and other bathroom fixtures of the latest Europe styles.

The famous American Mikvah expert Rabbi Gershon Grossbaum was the mikva designer, and all construction work was performed under the supervision of Eabbi Galperin of Jerusalem.

Sunday, Nov 02, 2003

WHY ARE WE LOSING SO MANY OF OUR TEENS?

Dr. Benzion Twerski clinical psychologist, family therapist and renowned lecturer, is coming to Crown Heights!

Dr. Twerski will speak about an issue that touches the heart of our community and affects us all: the growing problem of the rebellious teenager, even one who is raised in a Chassidishe home. An alarmingly high percentage of our children are being lost to the streets, etc. Understanding the rebellious teen is both complex and simple. Dr. Twerski will discuss ways to prevent or minimize rebellion, as well as effective intervention techniques. We must make a collective effort to try and re-connect to these children and save our future. For the sake of our shechuna, come and benefit from Dr. Twerski’s years of experience. The lecture will, IY”H, take place on Tuesday, November 4, 2003 at 8:00pm at the Grand Ballroom of Oholei Torah.

This community event is a project of Yad V’Ezer of Crown Heights. “Yad V’Ezer” is a Chesed organization that provides families in temporary need with hot freshly-cooked meals.

More than 1000 mourners @ Rabbi Chaim Gutnicks Levaya

Victoria's chief Rabbi Chaim Gutnick dies
DAN GOLDBERG – Australian Jewish News

AUSTRALIAN Jewry is this week mourning the death of one of its leading rabbis. Rabbi Chaim Gutnick, the president of the Rabbinical Council of Victoria (RCV) and longstanding rabbi at Elwood Hebrew Congregation, died on Saturday evening at approximately 6.30pm from a stroke.

More than 1000 mourners - including a who's who of Australian rabbis -- attended the funeral at Springvale Cemetery on Sunday led by Rabbi Gutnick's veteran colleague and friend, Yeshivah Centre director Rabbi Yitzchok Dovid Groner.

In his eulogy, Rabbi Groner said Rabbi Gutnick was one of a select few who had the ability to rekindle the "pintele yid" - the spark of Jewish consciousness that lay dormant in many Jews.

A consecration service will be held this Sunday, at which the tombstone will be unveiled. Part of the inscription refers to Rabbi Gutnick's self-confessed "obsession" with the Holocaust. The Hebrew script says he "revived the souls of the remnants of the Holocaust". The inscription also reflects the fact Rabbi Gutnick was an ardent Zionist. "For the sake of Zion he was not silent," it reads. continue...

Over 100 women @ JR Nshei event on Sholom Bayis

Sunday, Nov 02, 2003

On Monday Oct 27th, Junior N’shei Chabad held an unbelievable event on Shalom Bayis.

The Interactive Workshop with Dr Yisroel Susskind was a huge success B”H. Over 140 women K"AH attended the amazing event at the home of Malkie Smetana. Every seat and even standing place was taken. Dr. Susskind gave excellent tips on how to become a more effective, better, and happier wife and many ideas on how to enhance our relationships. He taught us how we can all improve on our marriages, no matter how strong it is already and we can all strive to turn our homes into a real Mikdash M’at (Mini Bais Hamikdash).

The women enjoyed delectable cakes and desserts prepared by Regina Simon and tastefully set up by the hostess. Every woman walked away with a gift; a beautiful red, fresh rose. (Door prize Compliments of Royal Flowers and Gifts)

Two women were extra lucky that evening; they won the exciting raffles of jewelry sponsored by Adin Jewelry.

Chabad School Second Time Winner of United States Blue Ribbon Award

Sunday, Nov 02, 2003

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA — Saturday, November 01, 2003

Representatives of the Hebrew Academy in Huntington Beach were on hand, on Friday, October 31, in Washington, DC to receive the U.S. Blue Ribbon Award for excellence in education. The Chabad Hebrew Academy is one of only two Jewish day schools in the nation to receive the 2002-2003 “No Child Left Behind Blue Ribbon Award” for the U.S. Department of Education.

In 1997, the Academy was also a recipient of the Blue Ribbon Award and is now one of the very few schools, public or private, that has been recognized for excellence by two federal administrations. A total of 47 private schools across the nation were recognized this year.

“No other Jewish school in the nation has received the recognition this cycle and this honor of distinction twice, and within the minimum five-year period of application, says Rabbi Yitzchok Newman, dean of the academy. “And we were awarded the Blue Ribbon under two different sets of criteria. This is telling us that the education we deliver here at the Academy measures up with the very best in the nation in every way.”

“In keeping with the principles of the No Child Left Behind Act, we will reward schools based on student achievement results, not process,” said U.S. Secretary of Education Rod Paige. The new Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private K-12 schools that are either academically superior in their states or that demonstrate dramatic gains in student achievement.

Suicide bomber explodes after cornered by troops

Monday, Nov 03, 2003

A suicide bomber who was planning to attack Israeli civilians but was hunted by security forces attacked an army patrol Monday morning near the West Bank town of Azzoun, in the Nablus area.

16-year-old Sabih Abu el Sa'ud from the Rafidiyah neighborhood in Nablus was attempting to evade Israeli security forces and make his way to a major Israeli city when he was stopped by an IDF patrol.

He blew himself up, lightly wounding an armoured corps tracker. The wounded soldier was treated at the scene and later taken to hospital.

The Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, linked to Yasser Arafat's Fatah movement, claimed responsibility for the failed attack.

Sabih left his home in the West Bank city of Nablus Sunday morning, telling his parents he was going to school, said his father Kamal. Instead, Sabih made his way south, trying to infiltrate into Israel.

On Sunday evening, when he failed to turn up for Iftar, the festive meal that ends the day's fast during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, his parents began to worry.

By then, Israeli intelligence already knew that a suicide bomber was on the loose, said an army spokeswoman, Maj. Sharon Feingold.

As time wore on, Sabih's family became increasingly concerned. Relatives realized that Sabih had taken a picture of his uncle Nasser, a Palestinian militant who was killed during an Israeli army operation in the West Bank in March 2002. Family members said the boy had spoken about avenging his uncle's death.

Sabih Abu el Sa'ud was one of the youngest of more than 100 suicide bombers who have killed more than 450 Israelis since 2000; there's only been one other 16-year-old bomber.

The would-be-suicide bomber's father, Kamal, said that "he was just a little boy and those who sent him should have left him alone."

An Israeli security official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Sabih's handlers sent him south, to get around a security barrier Israel says it is building to keep to keep West Bank suicide bombers out of Israel. A section north of Nablus has already been completed.

Israeli security officials said Sabih apparently saw the heavy security and turned back, spending the night in nearby Ramallah.

As time wore on, Sabih's family became increasingly concerned. Relatives realized that Sabih had taken a picture of his uncle Nasser, a Palestinian militant who was killed during an Israeli army operation in the West Bank in March 2002. Family members said the boy had spoken about avenging his uncle's death.

By Monday morning, Sabih was on the move again, heading toward the Israeli town of Rosh Ha'ayin and the security alert shifted to Israel's central region.

A main West Bank road was closed to traffic, apache helicopters hovered overhead and more road blocks were set up at the entrance to Israeli towns. Then Israeli intelligence received a tip the boy was in the village of Azzoun, less than a kilometer from Israel.

Security forces were searching for the suicide bomber since Sunday, and acting on intelligence reports, an armored corps unit caught up with the him Monday morning.

"The soldiers were carrying out searches for him when he ran toward their jeeps and blew himself up," Feingold said. "The armor saved the soldiers."

The security alert has since been lowered in the Rosh Ha-Ayin area, east of Tel Aviv.

JUST HOW BIG A SCREEN IS NEEDED TO WATCH LIVING TORAH?

Tuesday, Nov 04, 2003

image3016.jpg
For over a year now, every Sunday morning, between 15-30 men @ Chabad of Irvine, CA stay in Shul after Davening to watch the weekly Living Torah. As most people are off from work it is a beautiful way to begin the week with a timely message from the Rebbe.

This past Sunday, Mr. Jim Weiss decided that the screen used was too small to watch the Rebbe on.

On Monday evening, shortly after Maariv, Mr. Weiss along with his friend Kevin Cook wheeled in a massive 36 inch screen to be used for all future Living Torah presentations.

A Rabbi Who Loves G-D and the Minnesota Vikings

Rochester, MN -- You see him sometimes flying down Second Street, heading from Saint Marys to the Mayo Clinic with the tails of his long black coat flapping behind him, a calm smile on his bearded face, a lidded cup of Starbucks coffee in one hand, a black fedora on his head and a Torah under his arm.

He is Rabbi Dovid Greene, and he stands by himself as striking proof that Rochester, far from being the "flyover country" we say to ourselves we are (almost hopefully), is in reality super-cosmopolitan.

Because Rabbi Greene is no ordinary rabbi. He is an emissary to Rochester of one of the fastest-growing Jewish organizations in the world, the Chabad-Lubavitch, based in Brooklyn, New York. The group descends from a mystical branch of Judaism that started in Poland in the late 18th century. CONTINUE...

TUESDAY: Dr. Benzion Twerski is Coming to Crown Heights

Tuesday, Nov 04, 2003

WHY ARE WE LOSING SO MANY OF OUR TEENS?

Dr. Benzion Twerski clinical psychologist, family therapist and renowned lecturer, is coming to Crown Heights!

Dr. Twerski will speak about an issue that touches the heart of our community and affects us all: the growing problem of the rebellious teenager, even one who is raised in a Chassidishe home. An alarmingly high percentage of our children are being lost to the streets, etc. Understanding the rebellious teen is both complex and simple. Dr. Twerski will discuss ways to prevent or minimize rebellion, as well as effective intervention techniques. We must make a collective effort to try and re-connect to these children and save our future. For the sake of our shechuna, come and benefit from Dr. Twerski’s years of experience. The lecture will, IY”H, take place on Tuesday, November 4, 2003 at 8:00pm at the Grand Ballroom of Oholei Torah.

This community event is a project of Yad V’Ezer of Crown Heights. “Yad V’Ezer” is a Chesed organization that provides families in temporary need with hot freshly-cooked meals.

ILLINOIS SHLUCHIM & SHLUCHOS @ SPECIAL MELAVA MALKA

Tuesday, Nov 04, 2003

On Motzei Shabbos Parshas Noach the more than 70 Shluchim and Shluchos from throughout the State of Illinois gathered in the Chabad House Of Northbrook for an evening of joy and inspiration.

Rabbi Yosef Brackman of Chabad of Hyde Park chair of the evening introduced Rabbi Yosef Schanowitz (Highland Park) to open the evening with a Dvar Torah. Rabbi Dovid Teichtel (University of Illinois at Champaign) the newest shliach to Illinois reported about his Chabad House’s fantastic success over the first two months since they opened their doors.

Rabbi Daniel Moscowitz, Head Shliach of the State, took the podium and listed off accomplishments of the twenty mosdos over the past year as the crowd thundered with applause.

Rabbi Shmuel Lew was the honored gust speaker. Rabbi Lew related many stories and personal horaas he received from the Rebbe about the avodas hashlichus. Rabbi Lew emphasized the unique opportunity and obligation shluchim have to bring the message of chassidus to the world.

“This annual event invigorates the shluchim and always leads to new ideas that we implement throughout our State,” said Rabbi Moscowitz, “it is inspiring just to see the increase in our staff, each year, Baruch Hashem, we have been able to add more and more shluchim and shluchos as we expand our roster of Chabad Houses.”

Rabbi Moscowitz distributed a personally inscribed “Gutnick” Chumash and a leather bound copy of the newly printed Toras Hashlichus to each couple.

After the formal program the crowd erupted into song and dance and then sat down to farbreng with Rabbi Lew. The Rabbi arrived from England on Thursday night and spent Friday speaking at the Cheder and at Lubavitch Girls High School and farbrenging with the Mesivta Friday night and then spent the entire Shabbos day leading the farbrengen at Bais Menachem - Nusach Ari.

BROOKLYN, NY — Monday, November 03, 2003

The Kehot Publication Society and Merkos Publications, the publishing arms of the Lubavitch movement, announced the publication of their new,combined 2004/5764 catalog. The two catalogs are bound together, back-to-back.

Copies of the catalog were mailed to thousands of homes in the U.S. and Canada and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Kudos have been coming in steadily to Lubavitch World Headquarters in Brooklyn, praising the updated and restructured catalog.

The sleek, glossy and colorful new edition boasts a veritable treasure trove of Chasidic thought and standard Jewish texts. From the esoteric and the erudite to the practical and whimsical, there is something for every age and every level.continue...

Menorah on it’s way to Chevron

Wednesday, Nov 05, 2003

image3018.jpg
Larry Ritter of Israel Tour Connection and Rabbi Boruch Klar of Lubavitch Center of Essex County in New Jersey are co-sponsoring a giant display menorah for the Maaros Hamachpeila in Chevron. Rabbi Klar designed a beautiful aluminum menorah over 20 years ago when the Rebbe inspired menorah celebrations all over the world. His menorahs can be found in Germany, Austria, Sweden, and South America. It is lit by Governors and Mayors throughout Canada and the United States.

Says Klar, “The nachas I get from being a part of menorahs in places like Germany is unbelievable. But since being inspired by Larry Ritter of ITC to the point where I now take groups to Israel twice a year, the thought of having a giant menorah by the steps going up to the burial site of Avraham Avinu and Sara is the highlight of my menorah career. The love I have for the people of Israel and the Holy land has only been magnified by the amazing tours I do with my baal habatim. I have seen miracles. The shidduch between us and ITC is an honor and a powerful way to bring more light to the world this Chanukah.

On Monday, Larry left for Israel with a 9 foot menorah on board for Shliach Danny Cohen of Hebron. On our last tour to Chevron in August we had an effect that was unprecedented. We brought food for Shabbos to soldiers at the base there; we spent more in the store in 2 hours than at any time in the history of Chevron and of course visited the Tzion of Rebbetzin Menucha Rochel with this wonderful shliach. There is a menorah in the hills of Chevron, but this will be at the holy site itself. Yasher Koach to all involved.

Living Torah features Sichos about Arab Oil

Wednesday, Nov 05, 2003

In a two week series on Living Torah beginning this week, JEM’s Living Torah video series features a Sicha from the Rebbe speaking about how the US dare not rely on Arab Oil for its energy needs.

The Rebbe outlines a number of solutions, including more use of solar energy and developing the US’s own stores of oil energy.

S. DIEGO, CA CHABAD HEBREW ACADEMY CHILDREN GATHER FOR A RALLY & MORE

Wednesday, Nov 05, 2003

image3020.jpg
On Tuesday morning, over 100 Chabad Hebrew Academy school children k”ah gathered at a local park, marking the first get-together since the fires destroyed their school in Scripps Ranch last week.

The children enjoyed saying the Pesukim, Jumping castle, learning classes and some yummy cookies from Langs, the local kosher bakery.

“Just being together seeing one another for the first time in over a week and breathing the fresh cool air (without the smoke) was quite invigorating” said one of the happy mothers.

Whack that pi?ata took a beating but the kids got their candy! Children split into two groups and tried to beat the candy out of their fish pi?ata’s imported from Mexico thanks to Chabad of Tijuana and Rabbi & Mrs. Polichenco.

Special thanks to Shluchim / Rabbis Mendy Rubenfeld – Poway, Yeruchem Eilfort – La Costa, Shalom Boudjnah – S.Diego, Yitzchok Hurwitz - Temecula, Mendel Polichenco – Tijuana and Rabbi Srugo for making the event a success

OSU Chabad Launches Student Ambassadors To Israel

Thursday, Nov 06, 2003

COLUMBUS, OH — Friday, October 31, 2003

Jewish tradition says that G-d created humankind with a singular individual to teach us that one person can profoundly affect the entire world. The Chabad House at Ohio State University in Columbus is hoping that fifty-six Student Ambassadors for Israel will make a profound change on how Israel is viewed on college campuses.

The Jewish student groups, led by OSU Chabad House, named 56 Student Ambassadors who will spend the next year learning about Israel and how to advocate effectively for the country, said Rabbi Aryeh Kaltmann, executive director of OSU Chabad House.

The ambitious program was planned to counter what the Chabad rabbis say is a paucity of real information about Israel by both Jewish and non-Jewish students. It was planned well before the announcement recently of a pro-Palestinian conference scheduled for November 7-9, which brings an added sense of urgency to the pro-Israel campaign. continue...

This retreat comes especially after the busy Tishrei season in order to reenergize our Kochos for the rest of the year. This year's guest speaker was Mrs. Devorah Alevsky from Cleveland, Ohio.

The women enjoyed sharing, singing, learning, and farbrenging into all hours of the night! The Rest and Ruchnuis Retreat is a project of N'shei Chabad and is co-sponsored by the Chabad Israel Center.

GRATITUDE WITH ATTITUDE, A SHABBAT WEEKEND FOR TEENAGE GIRLS

Thursday, Nov 06, 2003

This coming month, Jewish high school girls ages 15-18 from across the nation are invited to a unique Shabbaton weekend with Rabbi Manis Friedman and a team of spirited counselors.

“Gratitude with Attitude” will run November 28-30 (Thanksgiving weekend, Friday morning through Sunday night) on the Rosenhaus Estate in Morristown, New Jersey. Featuring learning with Manis Friedman, great activities and crafts, a wild workout, workshops and more, the weekend will focus on the attitude of gratitude.

Bais Chana’s programs for teens, piloted in 1991, are one of the richest, most positive Jewish events offered for Jewish teenage girls today. Listening to the girls talk about this past summer underscores why, and how profound – and fun – an experience it is.

“I learned so much and made so many new friends,” Shaindel from New Jersey wrote, “the lessons we learned can help us forever.” For Chana of Queens, NY, who “came on a whim” because her mother wanted her to, “Bais Chana was totally nonjudgmental and completely accepting. It was an unexpected awesome experience, great for any Jewish girl who is open-minded and wants to learn and have a great time while she’s doing it.” At the end of the summer, Allison from Avon, Connecticut, wrote, “I got to meet girls from so many different backgrounds and different levels…Coming here gave me a real appreciation for being Jewish and living Jewishly.” Summing it all up, Mara from Duluth, MN, attending for her second summer enthused, “You learn a ton and have a blast!”

For information on fees and to register for the weekend, contact Bais Chana Women International, 800-473-4801, or email to: info@baischana.org, or log on to: www.baischana.org about special rates for sisters and friends. Shluchim, contact us for group rates.

"Racist" rabbi offered a deal to retract

Thursday, Nov 06, 2003

Jerusalem Magistrate's Court Judge Noam Solberg yesterday proposed that Rabbi Yitzhak Ginsburg explicitly and publicly retract his offensive statements about Arabs, in return for an end to all criminal proceedings against him.

Ginsburg, a member of the Chabad Lubavitch Hasidic movement, and a former head of a yeshiva in the West Bank city of Nablus, was indicted in July on charges of encouraging racism against Arabs in his book, "Tsav Hasha'a - Tipul Shoresh" ("Order of the Day - Radical Treatment"), which was published in 2001.

According to the proposal, Ginsburg would publicly announce a retraction of his inciting statements and state his support for social and political equal rights to all the state's citizens, regardless of religion, race or gender. Ginsburg, through his attorney Naftali Wurzberger, said he would consider the proposal.

Among others, the charges cite a conversation in the book between Ginsburg and a student. The student asks: "So an Arab has no right to exist in Israel?" Ginsburg replies: "Here in the Land of Israel, he has no right." In another place in the book the student asks: "What is the rabbi's opinion about the Arabs as a nation and a people, as our enemies and our foes?" Ginsburg replies: "There is something called the Third World or another name for more primitive nations. Clearly, they are lower on the world's cultural ladder; but the murderousness and anti-Semitism are not a function of primitiveness, since the Germans were the most enlightened and educated and also the most bestial in every way."

Fight resumes on holiday displays - City wants to ban menorah, others from Fountain Square

Thursday, Nov 06, 2003

The annual fight over holiday displays on Fountain Square is back in court.

Lawyers for the city of Cincinnati returned to federal court Friday for the traditional legal battle over the right of private groups to erect Christmas and Hanukkah displays on the square.

City lawyers asked the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday to settle the dispute once and for all.

The city wants to block all private displays between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day.

So, it's asking the court to reinstate a city ordinance that bans them.

The city says it needs to control clutter on the square during the busy season. But a federal judge last year ruled the ban was an unconstitutional infringement on free speech.

Lawyers for Chabad of Southern Ohio, a Jewish group in Cincinnati, led the charge against the ban last year and were in court again Friday.

Chabad wants to erect an 18-foot menorah on the square for Hanukkah from Dec. 19 to Dec. 28.

Chabad's lawyers say Fountain Square is the city's "quintessential forum" and argue that the display ban effectively closes the forum.

"The city's position is there is no First Amendment issue here," said Marc Mezibov, Chabad's attorney. "We see it differently."

The city's lawyers told the 6th Circuit judges that governments have a right to regulate private displays on public property. They said the city's ban applies only to unattended displays, not to gatherings, protests or meetings.

"They can say happy Hanukkah or pass out leaflets," said Richard Ganulin, an assistant city solicitor.

If the 6th Circuit refuses to reinstate the ban - or if it does not act before the holidays - the menorah and two other private displays will go up. The other displays are a Nativity scene and an 8-foot statue of J.C.

If the court does reinstate the ban, all private displays will be barred this year.

The debate has been going on for more than a decade, ever since the Ku Klux Klan won permission to erect a cross. The Klan is not seeking a permit this year.

Sparks fly at election forum featuring Avella vs. Ragusa

Thursday, Nov 06, 2003

The Bay Terrace Community Alliance candidates’ forum turned raucous Tuesday night with Republican City Council candidate Phil Ragusa facing several hecklers at the packed event that also featured speeches by judicial candidates and Queens District Attorney Richard Brown.

Ragusa, a certified public accountant from Beechhurst, rose to the podium to introduce himself to the crowd at the Bay Terrace Jewish Center after his opponent, incumbent Councilman Tony Avella (D-Bayside), outlined his positions and then left the room.

The GOP challenger said he was running for office because of Avella’s ineffectiveness in dealing with overdevelopment, his hypocrisy in accepting contributions from real estate interests while talking tough on development and his votes to raise taxes on several occasions.

“What has he done about (overdevelopment)? Nothing,” said Ragusa, adding, “he’s taking money from real estate developers and real estate lawyers.”

Several people in the audience interrupted him, with one man saying, “Tell us what you’re going to do” and one woman asking why Ragusa was making the accusations in Avella’s absence.

The audience quieted down after a period, but just after Ragusa finished speaking about eliminating government waste and Avella’s record on taxes, a man representing Chabad of Northeast Queens stood up and blasted Avella for opposing the expansion of the Yankel Rosenbaum Center on 213th Street.

“What would you do to help the Jewish needs?” the man asked Ragusa, to which the candidate responded that he would not oppose the project “if federal laws are in place” that allow such construction of religious institutions.

Another person challenged Ragusa’s endorsement by the Independence Party in light of anti-Semitic statements made by its leader, Lenora Fulani.

That remark set off a firestorm, with Ragusa’s nephew shouting, “to suggest he is an anti-Semite is outrageous.”

The ruckus caused Ragusa to wonder aloud, “Do I have free speech here?”

Phil Konigsberg of the Bay Terrace Community Alliance urged audience members to be civil.

“Never have we had the outbursts we’ve had tonight,” said Konigsberg.

Earlier in the night, Avella spoke about his accomplishments on zoning and transportation issues, specifically mentioning legislation that would allow New York City to come up with its own traffic guidelines. Traffic congestion has been a major concern in Bay Terrace.

Avella, chairman of the Zoning and Franchises Subcommittee, responded to a question about a city takeover of the private bus lines by saying “I am not in favor of the idea unless we get really specific protections.”

Those protections included maintenance of existing routes, private bus jobs and city oversight, said Avella.

After the Council candidates spoke, several judicial candidates introduced themselves to the audience.

Countywide civil court candidates Cassandra Mullen and Ira Margulis along with Queens Supreme Court candidates Phyllis Orlikoff Flug, Leslie Leach, Peter Lane and Gregory Lasak spoke about their professional experience and took some questions.

Lasak, an assistant district attorney, said that more than 20 wrongly convicted inmates in Queens had been freed in the last few years.

“Mistakes are made,” said Lasak. “The system is not perfect, but it’s the best one in the world.”

Lasak was followed to the podium by District Attorney Richard Brown, who is running for re-election unopposed.

Brown touted his office’s success in reducing crimes such as car theft on an ever-tightening budget and said the strict Rockefeller drug laws ought to be reformed.

SHLIACH IN SMOLENSK MEETS WITH GOVERNOR

Friday, Nov 07, 2003

image3024.jpg
On Monday November 3, a historical meeting took place in Smolensk, Russia - Rabbi Levi Mondshine, chief Rabbi of the Smolensk region, along with community leaders Mr. Zinovy Agranat and Mr. Alexander Bachrach, met with the governor of Smolensk, Mr. Victor Maslov.

During the thirty minute meeting the governor expressed a keen interest in expediting the transfer of the land that is intended for the construction of a Jewish community center which will house a synagogue, educational wing and a welcome center for visitors to the nearby city of Lubavitch, cradle of the worldwide Chabad Lubavitch movement.

The governor praised the culture and values of the Jewish nation and noted their contribution to the Russian national culture.

At the meeting Rabbi Mondshine also expressed his concern regarding several financial issues facing the region, and all present agreed that the fight against poverty and the revitalization of the Smolensk economy are one of the chief priorities today.

Towards the end of the meeting, Mr. Maslov confirmed his acceptance of Rabbi Mondshine's invitation to participate in the upcoming Chanuka holiday celebration. On behalf of the Jewish community, the rabbi and the community leaders presented the governor with a silver menorah candelabra and an album of Jewish community life throughout Russia.

AUTHOR OF THE REBBE'S ARMY SPEAKS IN FLORIDA

Friday, Nov 07, 2003

On Wednesday evening, Sue Fishkoff the author of The Rebbe's Army, spoke in Jacksonville, Florida. While the expected turnout was between 40 to 60 people, well over 200 people attended the event that took place at the Jewish Community Alliance.

Sue spoke very well and displayed Chabad in a positive light. The event was a tremendous Kiddush Lubavitch and the fact that it was presented by someone who is "neutral" made it that much more powerful.

Most of what she discussed was taken from the book, but she may have added a story or two. Any Shliach who has Miss Fishkoff speaking in his town is in for a nice treat.

Nusach Hari to Honor Landas and Highlight Shul’s Chabad History

Friday, Nov 07, 2003

image1439.jpg
Congregation Nusach Hari Bnai Zion will pay tribute to Rabbi Yosef and Shiffy Landa, the longtime Shluchim in S. Louis, at its forthcoming 98th Anniversary Dinner, in recognition of the Landas’ “exceptional labors of love on behalf of the S. Louis Jewish community”, according to Dr. Craig Berkin, dinner co-chairperson.

The dinner, which will be held on Sunday, November 16, 2003 at the Hilton S. Louis Frontenac, will also highlight the historic connection of Congregation Nusach Hari with the Chabad Chassidic movement, dating back to the Shul’s founding fathers at the time of its inception nearly a century ago, who were Russian immigrants of Chabad Chassidic stock. To this day, the Shul shares its Nusach Hari prayer-liturgy and many of its congregational customs, with those of the Chabad Lubavitch movement. Throughout the congregation’s history, and particularly as it prepares to celebrate its centennial, the rabbinic and lay leadership of Nusach Hari have been mindful of the Shul’s Chassidic heritage and its special relationship with Chabad.

The Landas’ dedicated service to the S. Louis Jewish community began in 1981, when at the behest of the late Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, they moved to S. Louis and introduced an impressive array of innovative educational, outreach and social service programs, many of which are conducted in cooperation with other community institutions. Over the years, their community efforts and personal relationships have touched the lives of countless individuals and families in the broader Jewish community, with a warm and welcoming approach that effectively transcends denominational lines. Their most recent achievements include the establishment of Chabad on Campus, located near Washington University, and the Spirit of Sinai Jewish Learning Center, a unique after-school Jewish learning program based on the Multiple Intelligence Theory. Rabbi Landa, who is director of Chabad of Greater St. Louis and the Rabbi of Congregation Bais Menachem, also serves as Chairman of the S. Louis Rabbinical Council.

Shiffy Landa is an award-winning Jewish educator, who lectures frequently around the country on a wide range of Jewish educational topics. In addition to her Chabad community programs, particularly in the area of Jewish learning for women, she is the educational director of the Spirit of Sinai Jewish Learning Center, and teaches at the Epstein Hebrew Academy. She was the 1991 recipient of the Stuart I. Raskas Outstanding Day School Teacher Award. Currently, she is coordinating the Chabad Women’s Mid-Winter Convention, which will be hosted in St. Louis in early December of this year.

13 Palestinians killed in clashes with troops

Saturday, Nov 08, 2003

Thirteen Palestinians were killed in clashes with the IDF in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, 12 of them since Thursday night.

One of the major clashes occurred Friday in the Jenin refugee camp, where troops together with Shin Bet operatives captured Islamic Jihad commander Amjad Ahmed Abeidi, 35, who was involved in the bombing of the Maxim restaurant in Haifa last month, killing 21 Israelis and wounding 58.

Abeidi supplied the explosive belt to the female suicide bomber who perpetrated the attack. According to officials, he was also behind the suicide bombing at Moshav Kfar Yavetz in July, in which a woman was killed, and the attack at Moshav Sdei Trumot in July, in which a man was killed. He was also involved in the planning of other bombings in Jerusalem and Haifa.

Security forces imposed a curfew on Jenin and the adjacent refugee camp in the afternoon and began searching for Abeidi. When they reached his house they called out to him to surrender. When he refused, a grenade was tossed into the house and Abeidi soon surrendered.

During the operation, Palestinians shot at the troops, who returned fire killing Muhammad Abu Shkharmeh, who officials said was involved in numerous shootings at soldiers in the Jenin area.

On Saturday, acting on information received from Abeidi, troops uncovered a large bomb factory in the refugee camp. Two explosive belts ready for use, and five barrels of explosives, as well as additional weapons and explosives, were found in the building, which was later blown up by troops.

During the operation, Palestinians began shooting and throwing firebombs and stones at the troops. One of the rioters, who attempted to climb into an armored personnel carrier and remove a machine gun, was shot dead by soldiers. He was later identified as Muhammad Salah, 19, a member of Hamas.

Palestinians also shot and threw stones at troops in the village of Burkin near Jenin. Palestinians reported that Mautaz al-Amori, 14, was shot and killed by soldiers who, in an attempt to disperse the rioters, fired at a wall. The IDF Spokesman said two soldiers were lightly wounded from stones and said soldiers were unaware of hitting anyone.

On Friday in the Balata refugee camp in Nablus, Muhammad Hashash, 24, a member of the Aksa Martyrs Brigades, was shot dead by soldiers after he attempted to throw three bombs at them. On Thursday night Palestinians said Faiz Salama was killed by soldiers as he approached a roadblock at Anabta near Tulkarm. Another Palestinian, identified as Ramzi Jarada, died of wounds he sustained in clashes with soldiers in Ramallah several weeks ago.

In the Gaza Strip over the weekend, one soldier was lightly wounded when an anti-tank rocket was fired at troops deployed near Rafah.

On Friday morning, troops shot dead two Palestinians while pursuing fugitives in the al-Muazi refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip. During the operation, a 100-kilogram bomb was detonated near troops, but no one was wounded and no damage reported. Later soldiers spotted two Palestinians attempting to place bombs near them and shot them dead. One of the two was identified as Muamin al-Harari.

Elsewhere in the area, on Friday morning security forces spotted a group of three terrorists tampering with the border fence near Kibbutz Nahal Oz. Security forces shot at the three, killing one and wounding another. The IDF Spokesman said the wounded Palestinian and the other fled the site. Palestinians reported that Muhammad al-Kayid, 10, was killed in the shooting.

On Saturday north of the kibbutz, soldiers spotted two Palestinians crawling toward the fence and shot them dead. They were identified as Mahmoud Shakal and Shadi Habub. Officials said the two had in their possession wire cutters which they apparently planned to use on the security fence.

Late Thursday night, soldiers spotted two Palestinians approaching the fence north of the Sufa crossing and opened fire, killing the two. They were identified as Muhammad Najar, 19, and Nazim Najar, 28, of Khan Yunis.

URGENT! DO NOT USE REMEDIA BABY FORMULA

Saturday, Nov 08, 2003

image3025.jpg
JERUSALEM, Nov 8 (Reuters) - The Israeli government has ordered Israelis to stop feeding their babies with a soy product due to fears it may have caused brain damage in several babies, a Health Ministry spokesman said.

The Health Ministry made clear it did not have proven links between the soy-based baby food product and an illness affecting the nervous system of seven babies taken to hospital in Israel. Three babies were in serious condition on Saturday with possible brain damage, a hospital spokesman said. Two babies who were fed the product have died, but both had other illnesses that could have led to their deaths, Israel Radio said.

"This is still a precaution only. We don't have proof yet of any link. The results from the laboratory will come tomorrow (Sunday) night or Monday morning," said Robbie Steinberg, a Health Ministry spokesman.

The soy food product belongs to an Israeli company, Remedia Limited, which manufactures a kosher soy-based baby food for Israel in a plant in Germany.

Steinberg said the Health Ministry was in contact with the German plant. Remedia has about one-third of Israel's non-dairy baby food market.

KASHRUS ALERT FROM THE BADATZ OF CROWN HEIGHTS

Sunday, Nov 09, 2003

12 Cheshvan, 5764

To Anash of Crown Heights and elsewhere:

We have been alerted by Rabbi Hershel Krinsky of the OK Labs to Halachic questions with regards to the ‘cultures’ made by ‘Vivolac’ which we (CHK) and other Kashrus organizations were using in the production of various dairy products. We are currently in middle of determining the final Halachic status of this product.

Therefore, we would like to inform the public to refrain from eating any dairy products which contain cultures (such as cheeses and yogurts) with CHK supervision, until further notice.

All of the above does not apply to Milk and Butter which do not contain any cultures. You may continue to use them for good health.

Wishing you a Gut Shabbos

(-) Rabbi A. Osdoba

SHABBOS PARSHAS LECH LECHA IN LOS ANGELES, CA

Sunday, Nov 09, 2003

Congregation Levi Yitzchok - Chabad of Hancock Park in Los Angeles, CA is definitely the most happening Anash Shul in California. And B”H it seems that with each visit to the Shul the congregation continues to grow k”ah.

Sources here in LA tell SNS that in the very near future the Shul will IYH be expanding and doubling their size.

To accommodate the large amount of Mispallelim there is now an 8:20am Minyan every Shabbos morning.

@ the regular Minyan Rabbi Yosef Wolowik, a Rebbi @ Cheder Menachem Davened until Shochain Ad.

When the main Minyan reaches Shochain Ad the children all go next door to take part in the fantastically exciting “Kol Yaakov Yehuda – The Rebbe’s Diamond daveners” the #1 rated JR Congregation on the West Coast led by the always energetic Rabbi Mendel Duchman.

Over 100 boys & girls participate every week.

@ lerech 10:45, one of the children the “JR. Rabbi” gives a Drosha followed by laining Mussaf and an exclusive Farbrengen / Kiddush just for the Junior Congregation Mispalilim.

The highlight of the program is the grand raffle that includes great prizes.

Aside from the regular weekly prizes, currently there is a super special contest with the winner to be awarded a trip to the city of Lubavitch!

R’ Elazar Plotke davened from Shochain Ad @ the Umud.

Rabbi Shimon Raichik, the Shul’s Rabbi, delivered a speech before Krias HaTorah.

With the Shul growing k”ah it makes the Gabbai’s job ever harder but the world renowned Gabbai Rabbi Levi Raichik just keeps on getting better.

Rabbi Nootie Gross davened Mussaf @ the Umud.

After davening there was a deluxe sit down Kiddush in honor of the Bar Mitzvah of Zev Allison.

After Mincha Rabbi Raichik gave a shiur in Rambam. There was also a special Shalosh Seudos and Seder Niggunim etc. for the children led by Rabbi Frankel. Rabbi Nootie Gross Chazzered Maamer.

After Maariv most of the Mispalelim stayed on to watch Living Torah.

U.S. State Department's 46th Annual Senior Seminar visits Crown Heights

Monday, Nov 10, 2003

The U.S. State Department's 46th Annual Senior Seminar visited Crown Heights on Thursday afternoon.

The Senior Seminar is the most advanced professional development program available to senior foreign policy and national security officials of the United States Government. The Foreign Service Institute of the State Department has conducted the program since 1958. The Seminar brings together 30 career foreign affairs and national security professionals with high potential for executive-level leadership, and immerses them in a 41-week program in preparation for leadership positions. The group included Ambassadors, Consul Generals, senior military officers, and leaders from other federal departments.

As part of their training to learn more about diverse American communities before returning to assignments abroad, the Seminar visited Crown Heights.

In a visit arranged by Yankel Wice, the group toured the sh'cuna, and were addressed by community leaders, visited the library where they viewed historical sforim, and some stopped by 770 before returning to their hotel in Manhattan.

In the new letter Rabbi Osdoba writes that after a thorough meeting at which Rabbi Shwei, Rabbi Zirkind, Rabbi Segal, the members of the Beis Din of New Square, and Rabbi Babad -the Tartekuver Ruv were all present and after hearing from specialists in the fields of cultures it has been determined that all the milk products, i.e. cheeses, yogurts etc. under the Hechsher of the BADATZ are KOSHER without any question.

Kinus Seating Website to close....

Tuesday, Nov 11, 2003

Most of you are by now aware of the tremendous innovation to this year’s Kinus, by allowing SHLUCHIM registration and banquet seat selection online. (www.kinus.com) However, please note the following:

Lay Leadership & Parent registration will close on Sunday, November 16, at Noon. From that point on we will only register Shluchim. The Kinus office will not accept fax or mail reservations after Monday, November 17.

The Website will close on Tuesday, November 18th. Once the site closes seat selection will no longer be available. Registration for shluchim only will be available at Oholei Torah, where there will only be computer assigned seating.

Upon your arrival in Oholei Torah, in addition to your ID stating your table number, you will also receive your banquet entry wristband (you will need picture ID for this). We will not issue a duplicate if it is lost. At the banquet each table will have a list of people seated there. For your convenience, a floor plan of the Marriot, including the ballroom with all tables numbered has been included in the program booklet.

A detailed syllabus of each workshop will be posted on our site before and during the Kinus to enable you to better choose sessions that address your needs.

Please visit www.kinus.com to stay updated on all Kinus information.

Steve & Betsy Kramer and Anthony & Tracy Shapiro were honored for their contributions to Chabad of Alpharetta.

The evening began with Dvar Torah by Rabbi Yossi New the Head Shliach in the state of Georgia. Rabbi New was followed with great entertainment by noted Chabad comedian Reuven Russell. Afterwards there was a delicous a buffet dinner served as a well as an open bar.

Suicide bomber planned to attack synagogue

Tuesday, Nov 11, 2003

Police and the Shin Bet recently arrested Muhammed Tushiya,19, from Kfar Yassin in the West Bank.

Tushiya, an Islamic Jihad terrorist, was planning a terrorist attack in Afula but changed his target to a synagogue at the nearby settlement of Shaked in the northern West Bank.

He told interrogators that the heavy police presence around Afula prevented him from carrying out an attack there.

The terrorist was riding a dune buggy heading for Afula, loaded with 10kg of explosives when he spotted a heavy Israeli security presence.

Tushiya told the Shin Bet after his capture that he changed his mind and decided to attack the synagogue in Shaked.

Security forces were also present at Shaked, so the terrorist decided to delay his attack. But by then, the Shin Bet had received intelligence regarding Tushiya, and arrested the would-be suicide bomber shortly after.

SHOCKER! HEAD OF REFORM: "WE MUST FOLLOW THE EXAMPLE OF CHABAD!"

Tuesday, Nov 11, 2003

Yoffie calls for greater links among Reform Jews
By Joe Berkofsky

MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 11 (JTA) — Reform Jews cannot go it alone. That was the message at the Reform movement´s 67th biennial here last week.

Despite numerically dominating the North American Jewish landscape, Reform Jews must reach out to other Reform Jews in Israel and Eastern Europe, and fight anti-Semitism by forging closer ties to Christians, said the movement´s president, Rabbi Eric Yoffie.

"There is no such thing as Lone Ranger Judaism," Yoffie said at the convention of the newly named Union for Reform Judaism, delivering the keynote address to a Shabbat morning service of 4,500 delegates.

... Seeking inspiration for this work, Yoffie looked no further than the fervently Orthodox Chabad-Lubavitch Chasidic movement, which has built outposts throughout the world.

"It is hard for me to say this, but I will say it nonetheless: We must follow the example of Chabad," Yoffie said. "I disagree with Chabad about practically everything, and I am appalled by the messianic fervor that has flared up in their midst. But I envy the selflessness of their young men and women who fan out across the world to serve Jewish communities in distress."

A Chabad spokesman, Rabbi Zalman Shmotkin, declined to comment on Yoffie´s remarks....

Chabad House brings a taste of home to hospital patients

Tuesday, Nov 11, 2003

Throughout the Hebrew month of Tishrei, the month of the High Holy Days, volunteers at Chabad House at Texas Medical Center baked, cooked and delivered homemade meals for patients at the hospitals of the Texas Medical Center.

“Many times when a patient is hospitalized over the holidays it can be quite depressing. What we try to do is to bring a smile to their face,” says volunteer coordinator Rochel Lazaroff. “True we cannot take away their pain, but we want them to know that they are not forgotten and that someone is there for them. It tells them that our community understands that ‘Kol Yisroel Arievim Zeh Lazeh’ (all Jews are responsible for one another) is not just a pretty Talmudic adage but something that should be put into action.”

Much effort and care goes into the meal preparation, and when possible, patients are contacted to see if they have any specific preferences to ensure that their meal is one they can completely enjoy.

Louise from Chicago said: “When they called, I tried to explain that my husband has a very complex restrictive diet, and that we would have to try to make do on our own. But they simply said ‘It’s not a problem, give us all the details and we will accommodate his diet.’ – and they did, cooking all these fabulous meals just for him while no doubt still preparing meals for dozens of others. We were absolutely moved.”

Over the holiday month more than 100 meals were provided for patients and their families, benefiting native Houstonians as well as out-of-towners, from places as far away as South America and Israel to the Northeast and the Midwest. Each was touched by the community’s helping hand.

No detail is missed at Chabad House when providing these services. Everything is done first class in the most generous way, and every effort is made to help the patients feel the holiday spirit - just as they would at home. On Rosh Hashanah patients enjoyed freshly baked traditional round Challahs with raisins along with apples and honey. On the eve of Yom Kippur – kreplach dumplings, and so on for each of the holiday meals.

“We see ourselves as the hands and heart of the entire Jewish community,” says Lazaroff. “We are simply the conduit that harnesses this tremendous goodwill that the Houston Jewish community is blessed with and channels it to assist those who need.”

To advise of who is in need of these services or to volunteer, call Rachel Lazaroff at 713/522-2007.

Rebbtzin Jungreis in Santa Fe, New Mexico

Wednesday, Nov 12, 2003

The Jewish community of Santa Fe, new Mexico was treated to an extraordinary evening with a talk by Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis.

"Listening To Life's Messages" was the title of the talk, and in her soft voice and deep insight Rebbetzin Jungreis brought the participants to tears when she recalled her father saving bread crumbs for "lechem mishne" for Shabbos evening.

Reb. Jungreis urged the crowd to cherish and deepen their relationships at home by taking lessons from Adam and Eve and how they stuck lovingly together even after Eve had caused the couple to be banished from the Garden. She also culled from other stories and insight from the Torah on how to live a committed marriage which would lead a more meaningful life.

The evening, held at the La Fonda Hotel, was sponsored by the Jewish Women's Circle, a branch of Chabad of Santa Fe.

Big Boost For Fledgling Party

Wednesday, Nov 12, 2003

After electing its first public official and playing a major role in defeating Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s charter amendment, the Working Families Party has emerged from obscurity to major power-broker status, observers say.

“They are two-time winners,” said political consultant Hank Sheinkopf. “This makes them much more powerful than before.”

Fred Siegel, a Cooper Union history professor and member of the Charter Revision Commission appointed by the mayor, added that Tuesday “marks the rise of the Working Families Party as the vehicle for the public sector unions [and] the dominant political power in the city.”

The 5-year-old Working Families Party backed Letitia James in the race to succeed James Davis, the Brooklyn City Councilman who was murdered in July. James easily beat Davis’s brother, Geoffrey Davis, and two other candidates to win with 76 percent of the vote. Davis won 19 percent, the only Democratic nominee for City Council to lose Tuesday.

...James, whose new district includes Crown Heights, Fort Greene and part of Williamsburg, among other areas, had the endorsement of the Crown Heights chasidic community, which had strong relations with James Davis but was not impressed with his brother.

Observers pointed out that James’ large margin of victory made the chasidic vote, which amounts to an estimated 10 percent in the district, insubstantial.

But Hanina Sperlin, chairman of the Crown Heights Political Action Committee, said James was grateful for the support and invited him to stand with her during her victory speech.

“I told her she was a person who could build bridges and I was looking forward to working with her,” said Sperlin, who invited James to his home for Shabbat dinner this weekend. Sperlin said James also was establishing contacts in the Williamsburg chasidic community.

NCFJE's Annual Dinner Guest of Honor is "Aishes Chayil" Lucy Rosenzweig

Thursday, Nov 13, 2003

This Sunday, at its 63rd Annual Awards Dinner, the National Committee for the Furtherance of Jewish Education pays tribute to a very special woman, Lucy (Leah) Rosenzweig. Hers is a story of a young woman who prevailed over enormous challenges and provided opportunities for hundreds of Jewish refugees to rebuild their lives. It’s also the story of a remarkable "Aishes Chayil" who emerged out of the ashes of Nazi-occupied Europe to build a Jewish life for herself and her descendants.

Lucy was born in Poland around 1920 to a Jewish observant and loving family. She fondly remembers a rabbi learning with her three brothers in their house.

Ambitious and determined, she opened her own hat store at the age of 18. "I always wished that I would have a store," she recalls. Whatever extra money she made went to help educate her siblings. continue...

Galilee Hamas cell broken

Thursday, Nov 13, 2003

Four Galilee Arabs, who studied in Jordan and were recruited by Hamas there and in Saudi Arabia, were indicted in August by Haifa Magistrate's Court on charges of assisting the enemy during wartime and supporting a terrorist organization.

Details released on Thursday reveal attempts by Hamas to recruit Israeli Arabs studying at universities in Jordan and train them in weapons, explosives, and tactics.

The suspects were recruited while on pilgrimage to Mecca and asked to compile intelligence on bus routes, locations of bus stations, malls, and security at the sites.

Security officials said they were planning attacks and recruiting others when they were arrested. The cell began to unravel on July 9, when security officials arrested history student Khadir Shalatah, 25, of Sakhnin, who admitted to joining Hamas in 2001 while studying in Jordan.

He said that he traveled to Mecca last year and met with a Hamas operative, who informed him he would undergo military training on his return to Jordan.

In January, he was instructed in the use of weapons and explosives, how to fabricate cover stories, how to behave if captured and interrogated, and how to transfer coded messages on behalf of Hamas in Jordan to operatives in the territories.

He was instructed to compile intelligence information on bus routes and bus stops, and details regarding entrances to malls and security guards. Shalatah also attempted to recruit other Israeli Arabs to Hamas.

Then on July 16, security officials arrested Amin Hassan, 24, of Masad, who studied social work in Jordan between 1998 and 2001. Hassan also met with the same Hamas officials in Mecca in 2001 and was instructed on security issues and operational behavior. He was due to leave Jordan for Turkey to undergo military training and admitted to compiling intelligence information on public places in Haifa and Tel Aviv.

Three days later, security officials arrested Rami Hiadrah, 21, of Sakhnin, who studied pharmacology in Jordan and admitted to having been recruited by Shalatah and to traveling to Saudi Arabia and meeting with Hamas operatives there.

On July 22, security officials arrested Malek Zuabi, 22, of Upper Nazareth, a staunch supporter of the northern branch of the Islamic Movement. He admitted to being acquainted with members of the Moslem Brotherhood in Jordan, among them university lecturers who advised him to join Hamas, while majoring in Islamic studies there.

Zuabi also confessed to having met Mahmoud al-Aisi, a senior al-Qaida official, whom he was to have met again in Saudi Arabia. Zuabi smuggled discs inciting support for al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden into Israel. Zuabi was in the North under the leadership of Sheikh Ra'ad Salah.

Officials noted that it is not the first time that terrorist organizations have recruited Israeli Arabs visiting Mecca. In March, three residents of Kafr Manda, all in their 20s, were arrested for planning attacks in the North on behalf of Islamic Jihad. One had met with its operatives in Mecca.

Lubavitch Rabbi in Leavenworth

Thursday, Nov 13, 2003

image3036.jpg
LEAVENWORTH, KS — Thursday, November 13, 2003

When Rabbi Bentzion Friedman received a call recently from the United States Penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kansas, he assumed it concerned his monthly visits to the maximum-security facility. The director of the Lubavitch Torah Learning Center in Overland Park Kansas, Rabbi Friedman has also been Leavenworth’s Jewish chaplain for the past twenty years and is the advisory rabbi for the Kansas State prison system.

This call however, was for a completely new project. President Bush, in one of his first official acts, had signed legislation for a Faith Based and Community Initiatives Program designed to support existing religious and social welfare organizations. One of the issues addressed was prisoner rehabilitation through the teaching of an extensive ‘life connections’ spiritual development program.

Rabbi Friedman was asked to serve as the chaplain/teacher for the Jewish prisoners in Leavenworth, which is one of only four prisons nationwide selected to participate in the pilot program. continue...

School Destroyed In Firestorm Reopens

Thursday, Nov 13, 2003

image3038.jpg
SAN DIEGO, CA -- A private school in Scripps Ranch that was destroyed by the firestorm began classes Monday in a new setting.

Fire destroyed classrooms at the Chabad Hebrew Academy, but a new building was already under construction when the fires hit. Luckily, the new building was spared, but it was only three-quarters finished.

Workers and school officials rushed to get it ready in just two weeks.

"To think just last week we were devastated and didn't know what to do ... our entire old campus destroyed, and here we are, two weeks later, in a beautiful location," said Yosef Fradkin of the Chabad Hebrew Academy. "Who could ask for better?"

The school's director said local businesses and school districts donated or loaned materials to help the school reopen. Officials are still trying to raise funds to replace all the school supplies and contents that were lost.

Also lost in the fire was the school's community center, library, synagogue, art garden and administrative center.

Invitation: Meet Hevron Shliach on Motzei Shabbos

Thursday, Nov 13, 2003

image3037.jpg
Meet Hevron Shliach Danny Cohen @ a special Melave Malka in Crown Heights
hosted by Levi and Suri Huebner,
478 Malbone Street, First Floor, corner New York Avenue and Empire Blvd.,
at 8:30 Motzei Shabbos Parshas Vayeirah.

Danny will be on hand to greet guests. He will be giving a video presentation and answering questions.

Danny and his wife Batsheva and their children have recently completed their first year of Shlichus in the holy city of Hevron. Danny is associated with Victor Atiya, head Shliach of the Kiryat Arba-Hevron area and was appointed by Lubavitch in Eretz Yisroel.

Much of Danny’s work is with the soldiers and police stationed in Hevron, where there are hundreds of security personnel at one time. The soldiers stay for a few months and as they rotate to do service elsewhere, more soldiers arrive. These are young men and women who have not yet made major decisions of how they will be conducting their lives. Danny himself served in a combat unit of the IDF for three years and reached the rank of Sergeant. He knows how to communicate with the soldiers and has been very successful with both the rank and file soldiers as well as the officers, who now call upon him to address the soldiers on special occasions and to provide inspirational programs.

To the residents of Hevron, Cohen brings the teachings of Chassidus and projects initiated by the Rebbe.

On Chanukah 5763/2002, for the first time, a giant menorah was lit at the crest of one of the hills surrounding the Jewish community in Hevron. David Wilder, spokesman for the Jewish community of Hebron commented: “Chabad has always been at the forefront of enlightening people. It is fitting that Chabad should be the ones to initiate the placing of a giant menorah on Givat Shalhevet, renamed for the baby girl who was murdered by a sniper from that hilltop.” Shalhevet means flame. At the conclusion of Chanukah, the Israeli Secret Service announced that the murderer of Shalhevet had been apprehended.

For Channuka 5764/2003, an even larger Menorah has been prepared to be erected on Givat Shalhevet, and permission has been granted to place a giant Menorah near Maaras HaMachpela.

Cohen has been attending to the ancient Chabad cemetery in Hevron, including the resting place of Rebbitzen Menucha Rochel, the place in Eretz Yisroel most closely connected to the Rebbe’s of Chabad. Menucha Rochel, granddaughter of the Alter Rebbe, was a legendary figure in her own right. She received visitors from near and far who sought her advice and blessings.

Although cemetery property is clearly owned by Jews, the government, in previous years, would not allow Jews to use it. If a Jew would be seen as much as walking on this property, the Arab neighbors would call the police, and the Jew would be arrested.

Times have changed, largely due to Cohen’s persistence. Now, not only are Jews allowed to tread on this land, every weekday there is a group of men who come to study Torah in the small building on the cemetery property. In contrast to previous years the men are guarded by soldiers. Often the soldiers join in to learn Torah… often it is their first Torah lesson.

Chabad visitors now flock to this location from all parts of Eretz Yisroel and from abroad.

This cemetery is located approximately a mile from the other Jewish enclaves in Hevron. With it becoming a functional Jewish center, the boundaries of the Jewish community, have been expanded. Jewish presence in this area has been secured with a clear message – to both the government and the Arabs – that Chabad in Hevron is here to stay… ready to greet Moshiach! ?

Shabbaton to be remembered @ at the Homowack in Upstate, New York

Thursday, Nov 13, 2003

image3039.jpg
This past Shabbos, Parshas Lech Lecha a few Shluchim and Shluchos from NY teamed together to create a Shabbaton to be remembered. The Shabbaton held at the Homowack retreat located in Spring Glen, NY turned out to be that and more.

Participants of the Shabbaton included more than 150 couples and families, members and affiliates of Chabad of Long Island. "The purpose of the event," said Mrs. Teldon, project coordinator and wife of Rabbi Teldon, Shliach in Commack & Director of Chabad Lubavitch of Long Island "was so that families could spend some quality Jewish time together in a relaxing and uplifting environment."

Highlight of the event was Rabbi Manis Friedman, noted scholar and lecturer, who spoke several times during the course of Shabbos and Sunday morning, supplying the crowd with thought provoking issues such as what it means to be "Jewish" and what sincere "living" is all about.

By Motzei Shabbos it was time to work off all that Shabbos food so free time was offered for parents and children to go for a swim in the indoor pool or just relax in a game of bowling or arcades (talk about mind stimulation). A Melava Malka was then held with music and vigorous dancing followed by an unsuspecting stand up comic by a so-called bill Cosby. The evening ended with a farbrengen finale with Rabbi Friedman lasting way into the night.

The next morning all participants enjoyed a beautiful breakfast with some remarks by Rabbi Friedman. Everyone then went packing to go home with more than just their luggage. Everyone had taken along some kind of good resolution for the coming days and months.

The Shluchim would like to thank the girls for doing a remarkable children's program during Shabbos.

The Shluchim that were on hand were:
Rabbi & Mrs. Levi Shemtov - Michigan
Rabbi & Mrs. Tuvia Teldon - Commack NY
Rabbi & Mrs. Zalman Wolowick - Five Towns, NY
Rabbi & Mrs. Ari Raskin - Brooklyn Heights, NY

Rabbi asks town to lift display ban

Thursday, Nov 13, 2003

A township clergyman wants the Township Council to put an end to a ban on holiday displays on municipal property.

Rabbi Levi Asimov of Chabad of South Brunswick asked the Township Council on Monday to reconsider the 2000 ban because, he said, the municipal building is big enough to allow every religious group to separately display its holiday symbols.

Council members said they needed more information before reopening the often-volatile discussion that led to council adopting a resolution that prohibits exhibits of religious or secular holiday symbols at the municipal building or on any township-owned property.

Council members also said it is too late to change the resolution in time for the 2003 holiday season, but, they would be willing to reconsider the ban next year if a broad coalition of clergy called for doing so.

The Township Council voted 3-2 in March 2000 to ban displays of holiday decorations on municipal property.

Council members voted after the clergy association and the township Human Relations Commission recommended against allowing holiday displays on township property.

Months of heated debate, which drew standing-room-only crowds to council meetings, preceded the vote.

Councilwoman Carol Barrett suggested Monday that Rabbi Asimov return to the council after having garnered support from other township clergy members.

The Rev. David Risseeuw of Six Mile Run Reformed Church said Tuesday that he did not believe members of the clergy association had changed their view on holiday displays on township-owned property.

The clergy association is a coalition of leaders of township congregations that plans services and promotes interfaith dialogue. The Rev. Risseeuw said he opposes holiday displays on municipal property.

"I think it's just part of the separation of church and state," the Rev. Risseeuw said.

Rabbi David Eligberg of Congregation B'nai Tikvah expressed a similar sentiment Wednesday. "Any time you mix church and state, you have volatility," Rabbi Eligberg said.

Rabbi Eligberg said the previous discussion of holiday displays had been divisive and anti-Semitic and that he had no desire to relive it.

"The last time this came up for discussion, it was, as I'm sure the council will remember, it was a very nasty and very painful discussion," Rabbi Eligberg said.

Rabbi Asimov said after the meeting that he wants to display a menorah at the municipal building and to invite those of various faiths to show their own holiday items at the township building. Rabbi Asimov said he hoped the menorah would convey hope to everyone in the township.

"We put it out there to spread the warmth of the menorah and the warmth of Judaism," Rabbi Asimov said.

Bombings at Turkey Synagogues Kill 20

Saturday, Nov 15, 2003

ISTANBUL, Turkey - Near-simultaneous car bombs exploded outside two Istanbul synagogues filled with worshippers Saturday, killing at least 20 people and wounding more than 300. The government said the attack had international links, raising suspicions that the al-Qaida terror network was involved.

One blast tore apart the facade of Neve Shalom — Istanbul's biggest synagogue and the symbolic center of the 25,000-member Jewish community in this Muslim nation — just as hundreds of people inside were celebrating a boy's bar mitzvah.

Three miles away in an affluent neighborhood, the other blast hit the Beth Israel synagogue, where some 300 people were marking the completion of a remodeled religious school.

MENDY CHITRIK OK, PLEASE SAY TEHILLIM FOR ALL THOSE WOUNDED IN TERRORIST ATTACKS IN ISTANBUL, TURKEY

Saturday, Nov 15, 2003

Rabbi Mendy Chitrik, who lives in Istanbul, Turkey and is very active in the community, was B"H miraculously saved from the bombings that took place on Shabbos morning @ 2 separate Shuls in the city.

Chitrik, who usually davens at the "Beth Israel" Shul, decided this Shabbos, to daven at the Ashkenazic Shul.

Immediately after Shabbos, Rabbi Chitrik went to the hospitals, to visit the injured, many of whom he is personally acquainted with.

"I daven every Shabbos at the "Beth Israel" Shul, I know all the people there. This Shabbos I decided to daven at the Ashkenazic shul, and after hearing the news, I understood the great miracle that had happened to me. My thoughts and prayers are with all the wounded and their families."

In both attacks that took place on Shabbos morning, over twenty people were killed at 6 of whom were Jewish and 250 were injured.

SNS ASKS EVERYONE TO PLEASE SAY TEHILLIM AND GIVE TZEDAKA FOR ALL THOSE WHO WERE WOUNDED.

May we have only good news to report.

Former Communist Headquarters To Become Chabad Center

Saturday, Nov 15, 2003

MYTISHI, Russia - The previous headquarters of the Communist Party's Propaganda Center will soon become home to the newest Chabad Community Center in Moscow. Rabbi Aaron Gurevich, who heads the Jewish Center in Mitischi near Moscow, led the search for a new building for the Jewish community.

Upon learning that this building numbered among those proposed by the real estate agency, Rabbi Gurevich signed a lease. He underlined the symbolic gesture entailed in transforming a Soviet-era Communist Institution into a Chabad Center, with its Jewish School and Shabbat services.

Two Thousand Rabbis to Convene in New York

Sunday, Nov 16, 2003

The annual International Conference of Chabad-Lubavitch Shluchim, sponsored by Merkos L’inyonei Chinuch, the Lubavitch educational and outreach arm, will begin on Wednesday, November 19, at Lubavitch World Headquarters, in New York.

According to Rabbi Yehuda Krinsky, chairman of Merkos L’Inyonei Chinuch and the conference, this convention is expected to host some 2,000 shluchim active in some 65 countries.

“This gathering is a unique representation of the widest spectrum, both spiritual and geographic, of the world wide Jewish community. Sitting in the presence of this most impressive, august body of dedicated Jewish public servants one can truly feel the heartbeat of Jewish life as it pulsates in communities around the globe”, says Rabbi Krinsky.

The conference begins on Wednesday and runs for six days through Monday, November 24.

“A most exciting aspect of the conference,” notes Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky, conference Director, is that “while this collage of shluchim represents disparate countries and languages, all are united in their singular devotion to perpetuate the Rebbe’s legacy of promulgating Torah-true Jewish continuity.”

The Mysticism of Fire

Sunday, Nov 16, 2003

Smoke intoxicated the air and dark clouds cast an eerie glow over the Southern California sky as fire engulfed our Simi Valley neighborhood.

At last, when the freeways opened and we finally felt comfortable breathing outside air, we noticed the destruction left in the fire’s wake. It was like the biblical story of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah: blackened mountains, trees and shrubs reduced to rubble, melted guardrails, blackened signs; complete decimation of the life and vegetation that was once blooming in the area.

Even with the destruction, I couldn’t help but feel thankful to God that everyone’s life in the Simi Valley area was spared. And since most of the homes in our area were not damaged, people could resume their lives as before the fires.continue...

Keeping kosher becomes easier

Sunday, Nov 16, 2003

On any Friday morning, you will probably find Rabbi Boruch Greenwald busy in the kitchen preparing kosher meals for the coming Sabbath.

Greenwald, like Jews the world over, follows closely 613 mitzvos, or positive commandments, of his faith. One of those commands the followers of Judaism to consume only kosher foods.

The word "kosher" has been adopted by popular American culture as slang for "all right" or "good." But for Jews, kosher is a deep spiritual concept that closely connects the consumption of food to their faith.

Following the dietary laws of the Torah, the Jewish holy book, helps bring Jews closer to God and their faith, Greenwald said. continue...

University Toledo, OH Hillel - L’Chaim ,To life!

Sunday, Nov 16, 2003

Jewish Student life has been renewed at UT Hillel. Whether participating in “Life Cycle” celebrations, bringing celebration into the week with Shabbat dinners, or simply being the life of the party – students have a warm home away from home at Hillel-Chai Jewish Student Center.

The Jewish students who are a part of Hillel are as varied as the UT student body. Local and out-of-town undergraduate and graduate students from France, Russia, Israel, Michigan, Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton, and even Geneva and Ashtabula Ohio, join Hillel to participate in programming. Some have a Hebrew school education, for others this is a first experience with a Jewish organization. You don’t read Hebrew? No problem! Fluent as a native Israeli, that’s good too. Hillel has no prerequisites.

Four years ago the Hillel program at the University of Toledo was on the verge of being eliminated. “There was not even a part-time staff person to manage the program” said UJC/CEO Joel Beren. Beren added, “the United Jewish Council gave serious consideration to eliminating Hillel allocations for University of Toledo and Bowling Green State University. There were very few Jewish undergraduate students, and those who were interested in Jewish life had nowhere to turn.”

In 1999 Rabbi Shemtov began making plans for a young Rabbi and his wife to move to Toledo to assist with development of Chabad programs. As part of that plan the United Jewish Council began discussions with Chabad about having the new Rabbi and his wife take responsibility for the Hillel program at UT. Rabbi Shmuly and Chani Rothman came to Toledo from Brooklyn in Oct. 2000, with their newborn daughter, to enhance Jewish life for the UT student body. With hard work and endless creativity they have begun to see the fruit of their labor. continue...

New Shluchim to Krasnodar

Monday, Nov 17, 2003

KRASNODAR, Russia - Rabbi Shneur Segal along with his wife and a two-month old son arrived to Krasnodar. He is the first Rabbi in the city since 1935, when the Soviet authorities banned all religious activities. The chairman of the Jewish Community Yuri Teitelbaum said that arrival of Rabbi Segal will activate the life of Krasnodar's Jewish community of 400 people. It also brings hope that the city will have a synagogue.

An ongoing grant to support the new shliach was made by Lev Leviev, The Rohr Family Foundation of New York as they support more then 70 Rabbis in the Former Soviet Union and a special thanks to Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky of Merkos.

The Segals were appointed by head Shliach and Chief Rabbi of Russia Berel Lazar

Mossad chief: 40 global terror warnings on Jews, Israelis

Monday, Nov 17, 2003

The first words to be spoken by an active Mossad spy agency chief at a Knesset meeting in over 18 years were: "Look, I am really not happy to be here and to have to tell you this."

Members of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee heard at their sitting Monday morning from Mossad chief Maj.-Gen. (res.) Meir Dagan, who warned the that there are currently forty terror attack warnings against Jewish and Israeli targets worldwide, and that Iran's nuclear program poses the greatest existential threat to Israel since the Jewish state's creation in 1948.

Dagan told the committee that Israel was capable of dealing with the threat emanating from Iran, but added that cuts in the defense budget were "debilitating."

Mossad's chief advised the Knesset committee Monday that Israel knows of "specific warnings" of planned attacks on Jewish and Israeli targets overseas by global terror organizations.

Dagan noted that the Istanbul attack required extensive organization and planning and large financial support. He referred to the new Islamic network as a "world jihad" organization that is comprised of various Sunni Moslem groups, with Al-Qaida being only one of them. Al-Qaida claimed responsibility for the attack in Turkey, but Dagan attributed it to the "world jihad."

Dagan denied news reports that Israeli intelligence had warned the Turkish government about possible terror attacks against synagogues in Istanbul.

Al-Qaida claimed responsibility for killing 24 people in twin suicide attacks on synagogues in Istanbul Saturday

Dagan said that Islamic terrorist groups had one common objective: to spread their brand of fundamentalist Islam over the globe.

He said no country has been identified as a "sponsor" of the network. But some countries, such as Egypt, that feel threatened by the groups have begun to operate against them.

According to Dagan, the difficulty in fighting such an organization is the fact that even if one terror infrastructure is eliminated there are others. He predicts that if any of these groups obtains chemical or biological weapons that they won't hesitate to use them.

Mossad's chief also said Iran's nuclear missile capabilities could pose a threat not only to Israel, but also to Europe, and urged the international community to stop Teheran's nuclear development.

Israel Radio reported Monday that Mossad believes Iran is going "full steam ahead" with its nuclear weapons program, despite its apparent cooperation with the United Nations nuclear agency, the IAEA.

Dagan said Iran's nuclear development was approaching "a point of no return".

Dagan told the committee that the 100 megawatt reactor ii Bushir is too large to be used only for electricity production. Iran's Kashan uranium enrichment facility is close to completion and, barring serious technical difficulties, has the potential of producing material to make 10 nuclear bombs a year by the end of 2004, he said.

According to Israel Radio, Iran has invested billions of dollars in its nuclear development. Dagan told the Knesset committee that Iran's nuclear facility in Kashan was especially worrisome.

Iran has also invested similar amounts in surface-to-surface missiles, some of which can currently travel distances of between 1,400km to 2,000km - putting Israel within range. Dagan said that Iran was also developing longer-range missiles capable of hitting European cities. Teheran was also investing in bombers able to carry nuclear payloads and travel long distances, Dagan said.

Dagan told the committee that Tehran's support for Hamas, the Islamic Jihad, and Hizbullah, (especially for providing Hizbullah with short-range missiles deployed in southern Lebanon) were serious threats to Israel.

Labor MK Ephraim Sneh said the United States has the ability to disarm Iran of its nuclear capabilities and should do so.

Dagan said Iran is trying to obtain nuclear weapons to become a nuclear power and to achieve the status of North Korea, a country that is viewed as untouchable.

In sharp contrast to Israeli and US assessments, European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana said on Monday that Iran had been "honest" about its nuclear program and should not be reported to the U.N. Security Council for possible violations.

Solana was speaking to reporters in Teheran after his meeting with Iran's National Security head.

Meanwhile, Egyptian sources confirmed a meeting between Mossad chief Me'ir Dagan and Egyptian security chief Omar Suleiman Monday morning.

Suleiman is currently visiting the West Bank in an attempt to broker a ceasefire between Israel, the PA and the Hamas and Islamic Jihad militant groups.

As official Egyptian source said that the Palestinians are ready to negotiate a cease-fire if Israel ceases targeted killings and incursions into the PA for arresting suspected terrorists.

ISRAELI PUPILS SEND BOOKS TO SAN DIEGO JEWISH SCHOOL

Monday, Nov 17, 2003

Students from the elementary school of the Sha'ar HaNegev region have collected Hebrew books from among their personal libraries, and are sending them to the Chabad Hebrew Academy in San Diego. Twenty classroom trailers of the school burned down in the huge wildfires that blazed through southern California two weeks ago.

Some of the books have already been sent, and the second installment of the donation will be made tomorrow. Sha'ar HaNegev students will meet tomorrow with representatives of the San Diego Jewish community; the latter are visiting Israel in the framework of the General Assembly of Jewish American organizations.

Sha'ar HaNegev Regional Council head Alon Shuster told Arutz-7's Moshe Priel, "At a time when Jewish centers around the world are attacked and threatened, and when former Jewish Agency head Avraham Burg eulogizes Zionism - the 'working settlement' enterprise in Israel continues to strengthen its wide-ranging ties with Jewish communities around the world.

In other Chabad news, the movement has decided to add extra safeguards to its many missions and Chabad Houses all around the world, following the double bombing in Turkey and assorted Al-Qaeda threats against Jewish targets. The worldwide Jewish movement is in contact with the Israeli defense establishment on the matter.

Life As We (Don’t) Know It” - Day of Learning Created By Girls, For Girls

Monday, Nov 17, 2003

“Life As We (Don’t) Know It,” a day of much more than learning for post-sem girls, with Rabbi Manis Friedman and other fantastic speakers, is the brainchild of a group of girls who heard Friedman speak at Bais Chana this past summer and were amazed at how it broadened their thinking and made them really appreciate who they were as young Jewish women. “Everything he talks about is so relevant and it has such an impact on your life,” Devorah Leah of Crown Heights said at the end of the summer. “I wish my friends could hear this.”

From that modest wish came the plans for a full day program, covering everything from the finer points of faith and hashgacha protis to dating, marriage and living our lives as better Jews – and all the issues in between that are relevant to girls in this age group.

If you are a single post-sem girl, either on shlichus, working or in school, you owe it to yourself – this day is definitely for you! Be there on Thursday, Nov 27, 2 Kislev, at the Chabad House in Great Neck, Long Island, for an unmatched experience created by girls, for girls.

Pre-registration is required. For more information and to register, go to www.charitybox.com/bcwi and click on the events tab, then sign up. Discount for registration by Nov 21. For more information email to: info@baischana.org

Habad Hassidim to Increase Activities in Turkey

Monday, Nov 17, 2003

(IsraelNN.com) Leaders of the Habad Hassidic movement in Israel met following the double car bombing attacks in Turkey. The rabbinical court of the international hassidic movement called for increased activities around the globe as a response to the documented increase in anti-Semitic attacks, stating that the emissaries operating in Turkey will become more active and work towards increasing their public profile.

The Habad/Lubavitch rabbis stated they will not be deterred from spreading the Torah message around the world, adding terror attacks will not keep them away from any location.

2 soldiers killed at Gush Etzion tunnel roadblock

Tuesday, Nov 18, 2003

The army has released the names of two soldiers killed Tuesday morning on the tunnel road which links the Bethlehem-area Gush Etzion communities to Jerusalem.

The two were Sgt.-Maj. Shlomi Belski, 23, from Haifa and St.-Sgt. Shaul Lahav, 20, from Kibbutz Shomrat in the north.

The shooting attack took place at 6am when a Palestinian gunman approached the roadblock with his rifle - an AK 47 - concealed in a prayer mat, then shot the soldiers from point-blank range.

The gunman fled the scene on foot and was picked up by a waiting vehicle which sped him off in the direction of Bethlehem. IDF troops have begun operating in Bethlehem as a result of the attack.

Shaul Lahav, who wore a ceramics flack jacket, was shot in the neck, while Belski, who was sitting a jeep, was critically wounded from a bullet that managed to pierce his regular flack jacket.

Magen David Adom medics arrived at the scene and attempted to stabiliize their conditions. MADA transferred them to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital, where they were pronounced dead.

IDF forces closed the Gush Etzion-Jerusalem highway to traffic and began searching the area for the perpetrators.

Judea & Samaria Battalion Commander Brig.-Gen. Gadi Eizencott confirmed that the gunman fled the scene of the attack on foot, possibly to a nearby cement factory where a waiting car took him to Bethlehem.

Defense Minister called the attack "very serious", and stressed that it made recent attempts at dialogue with the Palestinians even more difficult. "We are trying to promote a cease-fire with the Egyptians as mediators. This attack casts doubt on holding talks with the Palestinians," Mofaz said.

Mofaz also told Army Radio that Palestinian Authority attempts at combating the terrorist infrastructure in Bethlehem, and other places, were "merely for show" and were meant to appease the US administration.

"As far as I understand, the Palestinian security forces will be under the control of (Palestinian Authority chairman Yasser) Arafat, which will undoubtedly not create the right conditions for dealing with terror," he told Jerusalem Post reporter David Rudge.

According to Army Radio, Palestinian militants Israel had asked the PA to arrest were either arrested and then released in a "revolving door" policy, or were not arrested at all.

Question marks regarding the soldiers'/ commanders' performance

Question marks have arisen regarding the performance of the soldiers at the Tunnel Road checkpoint.

According to Channel 1, the soldiers at the roadblock did not react to the attack in a timely and proper manner. Troops at the roadblock were drilled in 'attack-response' maneuvers, but did not act accordingly.

Although the army is not yet calling the incident a foul-up, attempts are being made by the IDF to understand how 9 soldiers could not prevent the escape of a gunman who had just shot their comrades at point-blank range.

While more than 20,000 cars pass through this roadblock every day, it is rare for pedestrians to approach it – especially Arabs. The arrival of the gunman on foot should have set off alarms immediately.

Moreover, although the attack came at daybreak, visibility was good, and during the period of time it took the gunman to empty half a magazine and wound two soldiers, nobody began shooting until the gunman was well on his way.

Rival Russian Jewish Leaders Lend Backing to Putin

Tuesday, Nov 18, 2003

Russia's arrest of a Jewish oil magnate has drawn heavy criticism from abroad, but the feuding leaders of the country's two major Jewish organizations are both voicing support for the government action.

In a rare moment of agreement between bitter rivals, Berel Lazar, chief rabbi for the Chabad-Lubavitch-dominated Federation of Russian Jews, and Yevgeny Satanovsky, president of the Russian Jewish Congress, both defended the arrest of business tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky, whose father is Jewish. Indeed, while some foreign observers have detected whiffs of antisemitism in the prosecution of Khodorkovsky, the two Russian Jewish leaders said that his arrest might actually be a step forward in the battle against anti-Jewish bigotry.

In interviews with the Forward, Lazar and Satanovsky said that Khodorkovsky had been trying to gain too much power in the political arena, criticizing, in particular, his support of Russia's Communist Party, which contains strong strains of Soviet-era antisemitism. CONTINUE...

Life As We (Don’t) Know It” - Day of Learning Created By Girls, For Girls

Tuesday, Nov 18, 2003

“Life As We (Don’t) Know It,” a day of much more than learning for post-sem girls, with Rabbi Manis Friedman and other fantastic speakers, is the brainchild of a group of girls who heard Friedman speak at Bais Chana this past summer and were amazed at how it broadened their thinking and made them really appreciate who they were as young Jewish women. “Everything he talks about is so relevant and it has such an impact on your life,” Devorah Leah of Crown Heights said at the end of the summer. “I wish my friends could hear this.”

From that modest wish came the plans for a full day program, covering everything from the finer points of faith and hashgacha protis to dating, marriage and living our lives as better Jews – and all the issues in between that are relevant to girls in this age group.

If you are a single post-sem girl, either on shlichus, working or in school, you owe it to yourself – this day is definitely for you! Be there on Thursday, Nov 27, 2 Kislev, at the Chabad House in Great Neck, Long Island, for an unmatched experience created by girls, for girls.

Pre-registration is required. For more information and to register, go to www.charitybox.com/bcwi and click on the events tab, then sign up. Discount for registration by Nov 21. For more information email to: info@baischana.org

Rabbi Yisroel Haber hits the Space Coast

Tuesday, Nov 18, 2003

image3054.jpg
The Chabad Jewish Community Center of the Space Coast located in Satellite Beach, FL hosted renowned speaker and noted author Rabbi Yisroel Haber who is on a North American tour from the Golan Heights, Israel.

Rabbi Haber shared his inspiring and humorous stories and experiences from the Heights of Alaska to the Golan Heights and had the crowd spellbound and choking (literally) from laughter.

Representatives from the local Jewish Federation as well as from the 5 synagogues on the Space Coast were deeply moved and walked away with a great sense of respect and admiration for the Chabad movement and its activities around the globe.

Chabad-Lubavitch Represented at the General Assembly of the UJC

Tuesday, Nov 18, 2003

image3055.jpg
JERUSALEM, ISRAEL — Tuesday, November 18, 2003

Twenty-five Chabad-Lubavitch representatives from cities across the United States and the former Soviet Union, are wrapping up the final day at the 72nd annual General Assembly of the United Jewish Communities, which convened in Jerusalem, this week.

The number of Shluchim (representatives) who joined their local Federation missions on the five-day event is reflective of a new openness by Federation leaders to partner with religious Jewish institutions committed to the values of Jewish continuity. According to Rabbi Eric Lankin, Director of Religious and Educational Activities at the UJC, “Chabad has a unique message and we believe that it needs to be heard.”

The participation of 25 Shluchim is also indicative of successful working relationships between Chabad and local federations nationwide. “Local Federations are aware of the work and commitment of Chabad out in the field,” observes Rabbi Dovid Eliezri, Chabad Shliach to Yorba Linda, CA, who serves on the UJC’s Renaissance and Renewal Pillar. For the fourth year in a row, Rabbi Yisroel Rappoport, Chabad-Lubavitch Shliach and rabbi of Congregation Beth Jacob in Vineland, New Jersey, received the Federation’s award for “outstanding rabbinic leadership,” at an awards ceremony on Monday. continue...

First Southern California Inter-Collegiate Shabbaton a Huge Success

Tuesday, Nov 18, 2003

image3056.jpg
This past Shabbos, students from all across Southern California gathered at the new Chabad House @ USC in Los Angeles for an amazing Shabbat experience. Over a hundred students packed the house for a Friday night meal filled with singing, dancing, Divrei Torah, and more, which lasted until 2:00 am and beyond. More than 60 came back for Shabbos day, and the Farbrengen stretched the Shabbos meal until it was time for Havdalah. Even then people just did not want to leave this awesome energy behind, and many stayed for a Melava Malka BBQ, staying once again until after midnight.

This Shabbaton offered students from campuses where there is a smaller or newer Chabad presence the opportunity to meet with many others, providing tremendous Chizzuk and inspiration to everybody there. Just one example of the tremendous impact: For many students this was their first time keeping Shabbos from beginning to end. The atmosphere was so uplifting that two students made the momentous decision to start keeping Shabbos every week!

New friendships were made, old ones were rekindled and cemented, and there was a common refrain on the lips of all as they left: We've got to do this again, often and soon!

An added benefit of the Shabbaton was the opportunity for the Shluchim and Shluchos in attendance to share ideas and Farbreng. Those participating were: Rabbi Shalom and Meirav Boujnah from SDSU, Rabbi Mendel and Rochel Loschak from UCSB, Rabbi Mendy Mergui from UCLA, and Rabbi Dov and Runya Wagner from USC.

Participating schools included: USC (University of Southern California), UCLA (University of California Los Angeles), SDSU (San Diego State University), UCSB (University of California Santa Barbara), SMC (Simcha Monica College), CSUN (California State University Northridge), UC Irvine and others.

May this tremendous Kiddush Hashem and Kiddush Lubavitch fulfill its primary goal: To bring nachas to the Rebbe, and help hasten the coming of Moshiach now.

3 ALARM FIRE @ WAREHOUSE IN CROWN HEIGHTS

Wednesday, Nov 19, 2003

image3057.jpg
Shortly before 9:00am on a rainy Wednesday morning a 3 alarm fire broke out in a massive warehouse belonging to Crown Heights resident Yankel Spritzer that stretches along Kingston Ave between East New York & Lefferts.

Over 30 fire engines, ambulances and other emergency vehicles raced to the scene from all directions. Some fire engines were seen racing the wrong way down Kingston Ave.

The sound of the emergency vehicles going to the scene was heard all over Crown Heights.

On arrival at the fire the large windows on the upper floor of the warehouse that were encased with steel coverings were promptly smashed open by firefighters and plumes of smoke came rushing out.

On East New York a special mini command center was set up to coordinate the firefighting efforts.

After the fire SNS spoke via telephone with Mike Loughran a spokesperson for the FDNY. Loughran told us that a total of 33 units and 140 firefighters were part of the operation. Loughran also told us that there were no injuries and cause of the fire was being investigated by the fire marshals.

The fire was put out around 9:30am.

The majority of the damage was located on the upper level of the warehouse.

The lower level is currently under construction, with The Shuk expected to move in.

HUNDREDS AT MEZUZA FUN DAY IN LONDON

Wednesday, Nov 19, 2003

image3058.jpg
More than six hundred mezuzos were checked, more than a hundred sold and in excess of three hundred people attended a Mezuza Fun Day at Mill Hill Shul in London, England on Sunday 16 November. The event was organised by Leah Shear, the daughter of Rabbi Kasriel Kastel (LYO, NY) in honour of her Zeidie, Harav Chaim Moshe Yehuda Blau Z"L who passed away six months ago. Rav Blau worked tireless for the promotion of 'mivtza mezuza' and even insisted that it be inscribed on his matzeva that all who occupy themselves in promoting mivtza mezuza (and tefillin) will receive 's'char tov min hashamayim'.

As part of her family's campaign to continue her zeidie's work, Leah Shear recently republished a booklet titled 'How to Convince a Friend that it Does Not Pay to use Small Mezuzos' written many years ago by Rav Blau. The booklet also contained an adaptation of a sicha titled 'Mezuza - the Essential Protector' by her husband, Eli, who is a Corporate Lawyer for a US Firm in London.

The second stage of the campaign took place in Mill Hill Shul yesterday and boasted Free Mezuza checking undertaken by Rabbis Mendy Gorman, Mendy Sudak and Zali Unsdorfer. More than six hundred were checked and more than one-hundred (nice sized) mezuzos sold. There was also two outstanding presentations for more than one hundred children given by Rabbi Yossi Simon of Tzivos Hashem. The event had face painting, mezuza arts and crafts, bouncy castles, candy-floss, popcorn and an ice-cream truck.

The event, overseen by Rabbi Yitzchok Schochet, was a tremendous success and a number of leading figures in the English United Synagogue who attended made clear their commitment to assist in the event being replicated at many other shuls in England.

WORLD WIDE TEHILLIM CLUB CREATES NEW WEBSITE!

Thursday, Nov 20, 2003

IMAGE2424.JPG
Tzivos Hashem’s World Wide Tehillim Club is proud to announce the birth of our brand new state of the art website, www.tehillimclub.org!

This website, designed by Spotlight Design, will help us achieve goals we never imagined we could reach, bringing the Tehillim Club to heights beyond our wildest expectations! It is superbly designed, professional and easy to use. We created it to make it easier for the schools to enter in the children for the raffle.

Instead of mailing or faxing in hundreds of papers, the schools are now able to log onto their own database and check off the participants of each month. The website then automatically makes the raffle from the students checked off! Pictures of the prizes and winners will soon be able to be seen and the flyers and raffle tickets will be able to be downloaded. The schools will be even be able to print their very own certificates for winners and birthdays!

Baruch Hashem since last year, the World Wide Tehillim Club has grown by leaps and bounds. At the end of last year’s program, we increased our membership from 1500 children in 30 schools to 5,300 children from 91 schools in all six continents and hundreds of Shluchim’s children from across the globe. With the Rebbe’s koichos, the World Wide Tehillim Club has successfully united thousands of children with one purpose and goal: To grow and practice saying more and more Tehillim each month.

To see the winners From Shabbos Mevorchim Cheshvan, please visit www.tehillimclub.org

May the Tehillim of our children help the Yidin all around the world, especially Eretz Yisroel and bring the long awaited Moshiach NOW!

Day of Learning Created By Girls, For Girls

Thursday, Nov 20, 2003

“Life, etc.” a day of much more than learning for post-sem girls, with Rabbi Manis Friedman and other fantastic speakers, is the brainchild of a group of girls who heard Friedman speak at Bais Chana this past summer and were amazed at how it broadened their thinking and made them really appreciate who they were as young Jewish women. “Everything he talks about is so relevant and it has such an impact on your life,” Devorah Leah of Crown Heights said at the end of the summer. “I wish my friends could hear this.”

From that modest wish came the plans for a full day program, covering everything from the finer points of faith and hashgacha protis to dating, marriage and living our lives as better Jews – and all the issues in between that are relevant to girls in this age group.

If you are a single post-sem girl, either on shlichus, working or in school, you owe it to yourself – this day is definitely for you! Be there on Thursday, Nov 27, 2 Kislev, at the Chabad House in Great Neck, Long Island, for an unmatched experience created by girls, for girls.

Pre-registration is required. For more information and to register, go to www.charitybox.com/bcwi and click on the events tab, then click on "sign up" for more details. Discount for registration extended to Nov 23. Scholarships are available.

Jewish Women's Power Lunch

Thursday, Nov 20, 2003

Baltimore, MD — Thursday, November 20, 2003

The term "power lunch" has taken on new meaning for professional Jewish women in the Baltimore area.

A new monthly learning program called Jewish Executive Women's Network, or JEWN, brings together female executives, entrepreneurs and others in private practice, for a monthly Torah learning session.

The program was developed by Lubavitch of Maryland’s Rebbetzin Rachel Kaplan, to empower Jewish women in leadership positions. Kaplan says these women “are mostly out there on their own and share a unique common ground. The learning sessions are geared to their roles as female Jewish leaders in the business community.”

The sessions take place in participants’ offices on a rotating basis and provide them with the unique dual opportunity of spending 45 minutes in a Jewish learning and discussion forum and a chance to exchange business cards and network with other Jewish women professionals.

The opening session was held at the office of attorney, Ms. Alpert-Leibman, who said the monthly learning sessions will have a "trickle-down effect" in each woman's workplace. "We all belong to lots of groups” she said. "But this will give us an opportunity to learn something and to acknowledge all of the Jewish women who have come before us."

AHAVAS YISROEL ON DISPLAY IN CROWN HEIGHTS

Thursday, Nov 20, 2003

Dear Levi,

Please share the following with your readers.

On Thursday afternoon I was walking down Kingston Ave when I noticed a traffic cop stop her car to give tickets for expired meters.

Before she had a chance to write up tickets I observed S.R. from Raskin's fish going around putting quarters in any meter that was expired.

It was really beautiful to see such a display of Ahavas Yisroel which surely saved people hundreds of dollars in tickets.

B.D.
PS. Please remind everyone to feed the meters. Next time around there may not be a "S.R." there to save the day.

Worrying From Afar

Thursday, Nov 20, 2003

Following suicide bombings, area Turkish Jews express their fears for friends and family in homeland.

Michael Albukerk knew something was amiss as soon as he reached the central Lubavitch synagogue in Crown Heights Saturday morning.

Police cars were outside 770 Eastern Parkway and SWAT team officers in battle fatigues were inside the building.

“Michael, how are you?” a worried friend asked.

Fine, Albukerk answered, puzzled. Why? What’s wrong?

His friend told him what one of the officers had said: There had been terrorist bombings earlier that Shabbat at two synagogues in Istanbul.

Albukerk started to shake; he’s from that Turkish city. Neve Shalom, one of the targeted synagogues, “is the place where I used to daven,” he said. “I could see it in my mind’s eye.” CONTINUE...

A morning of recognition for Yeshivas Tzeirei Hashluchim

Thursday, Nov 20, 2003

In conjunction with the International Kinus Hashluchim, Yeshivas Tzeirei Hashluchim of Tzfas will be holding a Tribute Breakfast recognizing seven years of achievement at the Yeshiva and the Yeshivas Kayitz, and projecting a vision of growth and development for this institution that is so vital to hundreds of Shluchim around the world.

Over the short seven years of its existence, the Yeshiva has achieved a reputation of providing a warm and caring environment for the young children of Shluchim, and giving attention to the personal needs of the many young shluchim that walk through its doors. For many this is the first time they face the high standards of study in a Yeshiva environment that most of their counterparts have been experiencing for years before.

At the same time the Yeshiva has been able to retain a very high standard of learning and achievement. Under the guidance of the Rosh Yeshiva Rabbi Sholom Ber Hertzel, the Bochurim are
