Chabad House Happenings

New JLI Course begins this week, January 24, 7:30 PM
Communication: Its Art and Soul
In Jewish philosophy, communication is more than just a tool: it is who we are. Humans are defined as communicative beings with a communicative soul, and aligning ourselves with this soul is our raison d’être.

In Communication: Its Art and Soul, we contrast Jewish thought with scientific discovery to unearth the essence of communication and how to utilize its powers to better ourselves, our relationships, and all of society.

Can you express yourself effectively in 140 characters or less? Should you?

The rise of the internet, mobile phones, and social media has completely changed the way we relate, interact, and communicate with one another—and it’s high time we reclaim this lost art.

This course is eligible for continuing education credits for mental health professionals, too. Call for details.

See you in shul!

New course for women only:
Pause and Effect: A Shabbat Outlook

Six Tuesdays: 10:30 AM-12:00 PM or 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Week in Review
Great news! We received the full Certificate of Occupancy this week. Come celebrate with us this Shabbos!

As the fiscal year comes to a close we are grateful for all that our community has accomplished this year. Do you remember where we were davening last year this time?

New tax laws are going into effect and it might make sense to give some of your 2018 gifts in 2017. Ask you tax advisor. You can still make a last minute 2017 donation by clicking here.

Looking forward to seeing you in shul! 

 

Chabad House Happenings

Week in Review
This week at the Medical Center Chabad was a whirlwind of activity!
We continued the nightly menorah lighting in the front lobby of Aishel House while sharing it on Facebook Live, lit the menorah nightly at Baylor College of Medicine in the Medical Center, celebrated the wedding of Dayna Skolkin & Josh Tillis, and joined with Chabad locations across the city for nightly celebrations in the Galleria, City Hall, Toyota Center, Bellaire Civic Center, Discovery Green and more! May the lights of Chanukah illuminate our lives for the entire year!

GREAT DEBATES IN JEWISH HISTORY
New 6 week JLI course. It is not too late to join! Wednesdays 7:30-9:00 PM

Join us as we relive the EPIC debates of our past. We will learn almost the entire story of Jewish history through the lense of its debates. How does that sound? 
Would you be pro-establishment like the Pharisees or anti-establishment like the sect who wrote the Dead Sea Scrolls?
Would you believe Judaism is a nationality like those who took their lives on Masada? Or would you side with the moderates who settled to survive as a religion under Roman rule?
Which side would you be on in the debate about Maimonides' books?
Where would you stand on the raging debates at the time of the expulsion of Jews from Spain?
If you were in Eastern Europe in the 1700s, would you side with the followers of the Baal Shem Tov or  their opponents?
Today, where do you stand on the issue of separation of church and state? Should religion be kept private or in the public domain?
Come learn about these epic debates and find out which side you are on!
