Shabbat, the third of Tammuz, marks 25 years since the passing of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory. The Rebbe’s yahrzeit is a time to recommit to the Rebbe’s vision and mission of making this world a more Godly place.

Chabad invites you to join them for a community Shabbat dinner on Friday, July 5, to discuss “Sparks of Wisdom,” the insights of the Rebbe on selected topics, from a booklet prepared by JLI for this occasion.

On Shabbat day, July 6, the shul will hold a grand kiddush luncheon farbrengen in honor of this auspicious day and welcome Rabbi Akiva Nussbaum as scholar in residence. Rabbi Nussbaum spent years as research expert for Jewish Educational Media, logging hundreds of hours watching and editing videos of the Rebbe’s talks and personal encounters. Rabbi Nussbaum will share a unique perspective and his personal take on the Rebbe’s positive approach to life.

Reservations are required for the Friday night dinner, hosted by Rabbi Mendy and Altie Kasowitz. To reserve, visit www.chabadwestorange.com/fnd
