Chabad House Happenings

Dear Friends,

It has been a difficult few weeks as our brothers and sisters in Eretz Yisrael have been enduring bombardments and pogroms from Gaza and in their own neighborhoods in Lod, Acco and Yerushalayim.

What has been unnerving to many is to see the media turn everything around and portray the Jews are murderous agressors, and the Arabs who are trying to annihilate them as the victims.

In the meantime, Jews are being attacked just for being Jews in New York, Los Angeles, London, Berlin, Montreal and many other cities where Jews one thought this could never happen. 

This week we celebrated the festival of Shavuos, when we experienced the Giving of the Torah and were told in the Torah that "You shall be a kingdom of priest and a holy nation". We are reminded of our special purpose  to make a better and holier world. 

We know that ultimately, "The Guardian of Israel neither sleeps nor slumbers" and He will continue to watch over us as we dedicate ourselves to our task creating more good so that evil will dissipate on its own. 

Am Yisrael Chai and Moshiach Now! 

Rabbi Lazer & Rochel Lazaroff
