Rabbi's Corner

Top Of The Mountain

In the 1930's, the Previous Lubavitcher Rebbe received a request for blessing via mail over the holiday of Shavuot. In relaying his reply several days after the holiday, he began by offering apologies for the delay: "This week was Matan Torah- the Giving of the Torah- and I did not yet come down from the mountain, therefore I couldn’t respond until now...”

After a full week of festivities at Chabad, I'm feeling those words. Thank you to everyone who joined us "at the top of the Mountain" this Shavuot!

From late night Torah study to two ice cream parties with a combined total of over 60 children from our neighborhood hearing the reading of the Ten Commandments, to a beautiful Yizkor service on the second day of the holiday and an end-of-holiday  farbrengen, it was a Shavuot to remember. 

Having received the Torah for the 3329th time, let's dig in: This week alone, we present multiple Torah study opportunities at Chabad. This is your gift- come claim it!

Join us on Shabbat, this week as all weeks, for Chassidic Perspectives on the Torah Portion, before Prayers, 9:30am at Chabad, and on:

-Tuesday, June 6, 6:30 PM for Lesson 4 of our current JLI course, as we discuss the Torah's perspective on the issues surrounding Land for Peace.

Wednesday, June 7, 8:30am at Starbucks, First Ave and 53rd Street for weekly Tanya study.

Wednesday, June 7, 8:00pm for women's Rosh Chodesh Torah study, last one for the year, "Living with Joy", with Raizy Metzger.

and so much more. 

Shabbat Shalom!

Shmuel Metzger- Rabbi
