Weekly Update

  • Dear Friends,

    This Shabbat - 19 Kislev, 5783, December 2, 2023, we read the Torah portion of Vayishlach, which is the eighth portion of the Book of Breishit. The portion relates the return of our Patriarch Yaakov and his large family back to the Land of Israel. The Torah describes in detail the trials and tribulations he encountered, as he returned home, with the intent of permanently settling in the Land of Israel.

    Not withstanding his many challenges, Yaakov expressed his thankfulness to G-d for all His kindness and his humility before the benevolence G-d bestowed upon him.

    This Shabbat comes on the 19th of Kislev, which celebrates the liberation of Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, the first Chabad Rebbe, from Czarist prison. He was falsely accused of siding with Russia's enemy Turkiye, as he was sending funds to support the poor in the Land of Israel. His release was a great victory for the Jewish people and for the Chabad movement in particular. This day is celebrated by the worldwide Chabad community as the Rosh Hashanah for Chassidut. A special Farbrengen will be held on Shabbat after Mincha.

    This Shabbat there will be a nice Lox Kiddush which is being sponsored by Reuven Pittenger, In Memory of, Police Sgt. Elisheva Rose Ida Lubin OBM, who was struck down by a terrorist on Monday November 6, in Jerusalem. Rose is the niece of Elise and Jamie Kosofsky. Rose is remembered for her intense love of Israel and her dedication to her service in the Holy City of Jerusalem.
