Today in Jewish History

20 Cheshvan:

Birthday of the fifth Chabad Rebbe, Rabbi Sholom DovBer Schneerson in 1860 (5621), the founder of the central Chabad-Lubavitch yeshivah, Tomchei Temimim.

“If you find yourself in a certain place, a particular situation, know that it is by Divine providence. For G‑d orchestrates and arranges many events so to ensure that a person finds himself in the circumstance wherein he can realize his true potential.” —Rabbi Sholom DovBer Schneerson

Chabad of Washington DC hosted a bi-partisan forum on the campus of George Washington University. With remarks from members of Congress and Presidential Envoys to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism from both sides of the political aisle, the event presented a united front against the rising tide of antisemitism on college campuses.

Rabbi Levi Shemtov, Director of American Friends of Lubavitch, has watched the rampant growth of antisemitism on the campus of George Washington University in particular, and said he sees the best response to Anti-Semitism is a strong "Semitism." "If you don't know who you are, it's difficult to stand up for yourself."

A Place At The Table

It’s more than a free home-cooked meal or a passing cultural experience. For many college students, Shabbat with their Chabad rabbi and rebbetzin is a source of connection and a gateway to other events and classes offered on campus. For some, it’s a steady date that anchors their weekend and enhances their entire week.

In their own words, four students share why they choose to claim their place at the table

A Defense Of Torah Judaism

As a Chabad representative at a major university, I observe that students’ big questions today are no longer about how to reconcile evolutionary theories with the idea of a “young universe.” Rather, they center on whether the religion delivers on its ethical promise — to help us create kinder, more just societies — when measured against a modern rubric.

A Family Affair In Africa

"My mother taught me that in Africa we don’t think about numbers, we think about the individual soul. We had two families in our Hebrew school until now, but they moved back, and we have only one student. I could be sad, but I know that one boy is a whole world. Who knows how we can affect his soul?” - Debbie Bensaid

When Rabbi Yossi and Dina Levertov moved to Scottsdale in 1992, the city was mostly made up of elderly snowbirds drawn to the scenic desert oasis for its mild winters.
The quiet town just outside the bustle of Phoenix, says Rabbi Levertov, was “America’s best-kept secret.”

“The 48 hours of Shemini Atzeres and Simchas Torah should be dearly cherished, for at each moment, one can draw buckets full and barrels full of treasures, both material and spiritual. And this is accomplished through dancing.” -- Rabbi Y.Y. Schneersohn, sixth Rebbe of Chabad, from Days of Awe Days of Joy

Memories of Sukkot 1991

Sukkot 1991 was different.

The crowds were enormous. As always, visitors had come from around the world to share the holidays with the Rebbe.

But this time, after the Rebbe made the blessings over his lulav and etrog, he remained standing in the sukkah for the next six and a half hours with no break for a drink or to rest his feet.

The Lubavitcher Rebbe at Kaparot

Early in the morning, the day before Yom Kippur, a somber rite is performed, reminding one of the fragility of life.

Penitents recite a prayer of repentance and hand a live hen or rooster to a Shochet, for kosher slaughter.

The chickens will be donated as food for the hungry, and the act of charity stands the individual in good stead.

Out of sensitivity to the sanctity of all life, Torah directs the Jew to cover the blood of a fowl or animal which has been spilled. A special blessing is recited upon fulfilling this command.

Yom Kippur With The Rebbe

As a young adult living in Crown Heights, I had the privilege of spending Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur at 770 with the Lubavitcher Rebbe.

The highest moment, for me, came at the end of Yom Kippur, when—after fasting for twenty-five hours—we affirmed loudly in unison, with all our energy, Shema Yisrael, and then, thrice, Baruch Shem, and finally, Hashem Hu HaElokim, seven times. This experience was unlike anything else I have ever ...

Our Story

Chabad-Lubavitch is a vibrant, dynamic force in Jewish life, and its programs touch the lives of millions of people and directly or indirectly affect Jewish life in every community.

The movement derives its impulse and inspiration for Judaism and a love for Jewish people, from a call of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson. Governments fall, the map is rearranged, and Chabad-Lubavitch never stops responding to the call of the Jewish soul. Indeed, Jewish continuity is not an item on our agenda. It is our agenda. Yesterday, today and tomorrow.

For more than half a century in the United States, Chabad-Lubavitch has singularly championed Jewish continuity. Pioneering the broadest range of Jewish outreach activities, including the vibrant Jewish Day School system in America and beyond, it is the only Jewish organization to have established an international base of human resources so vast in scope, that it has the ability to facilitate the most dramatic and innovative outreach programs worldwide.

Through the diverse activities of Chabad-Lubavitch institutions, Jewish life has achieved a level of visibility and viability unlike any it has known in recent history. Our international network of some 4,500 Chabad-Lubavitch centers in more than 100 countries around the world has put a living Jewish community within the reach of any Jew, nearly anywhere on the globe, ensuring universal Jewish awareness with the promise of Jewish continuity.
