Chai Elul Kiddush & Farbrengen

This Shabbos, Parshas Ki Savo, there will be a kiddush and farbrengen in honor of Chai Elul at Chabad Lubavitch Center after davening at 10 am.

"Chai Elul" (Hebrew for "the 18th of Elul," also meaning "the life of Elul") is celebrated by the Chassidic community as the birthday of the "two great luminaries" -- Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov, the founder of Chassidism; and Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, the founder of Chabad. Chassidim wish each other "Gut Yom Tov!" and conduct joyous gatherings called farbrengens.

Jewish Athletes Come for Competition and Walk Away With Kotel Pictures

While this year's JCC Maccabi Games in Houston brought together Jewish athletes from all over the country, the Chabad-Lubavitch booth at “Hang-time” took them to Israel in front of a backdrop of the Kotel by letting the boys put of tefillin many of them for the first time, while girls got a “Friday light” kit to light Shabbat candles with a neat charm necklace for when they get home. A hands-on Living Legacy Torah Factory was also provided.
