Trip to the Rebbe

In honor of the 20th anniversary of “Gimmel Tammuz”, Several hundred people from our community, including a few dozen on an organized trip, joined tens of thousands of people from all walks of life and from around the world visited the Rebbes synagogue and Lubavitch World Headquarters at 770 Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn, New York, and the Ohel, the Rebbes holy resting place in Queens. The group also spent some time exploring the Crown Heights neighborhood, and took in words of inspiration and personal stories highlighting the living legacy of the Rebbe. Thank you to all the organizers and hosts for making it a rewarding a meaningful experience.


Know Your Temple

Dozens of people took a fascinating multimedia tour of the Holy Temple with Rabbi Levi Jacobson. The four-part course, called Know Your Temple, ran weekly from July 15 to August 5, featured a well-researched and informative course authored by Rabbi Jacobson himself, with the assistance of Exodus Magazine Editor Izzy Greenberg, that included a slideshow with illustrations of Temple, as well as photos of ruins and recent archeological discoveries. Through the course, part of the JRCC West Thornhills Judaism 101 series, participants discovered the beauty, wonder and history of the Temple with an amazing virtual tour.


JRCC East Thornhill Barbecue

The JRCC East Thornhill hosted a community barbecues last month, providing a casual setting for community residents to meet, connect, interact and enjoy an informal family experience.“These types of events are a great way to get to know one another,” expressed Chanie Zaltzman, Co-Director of the JRCC East Thornhill. “It is also a great opportunity and the perfect environment in which to welcome new people to our community, especially as we are in the process of preparing a new home for our community.” The barbecue featured music, activities for kids, and, of course, great food on the grill. Thank you to all those who joined.
