Marching together for Respect & Unity

In the short first few months of this year, we have seen rising levels of blind hateful violence in different parts of the world; deadly attacks in a mosque in New Zealand, churches in Sri Lanka, and Synagogues in the US. Contrary to popular belief and to previous centuries, most of these attacks were not driven by inter-religious tensions but by rejection of religious minorities as such by religious radicals and supremacist. These radicals are not interested in who has…

Prayer services for San Diego

Our hearts are shattered by the cold-blooded attack on our brothers and sisters—Jews of all walks of life—gathered at Chabad-Lubavitch of Poway on the final day of Passover. We must stand together to show that as Jews we will never be broken. The Lubavitcher Rebbe taught, the response to darkness is more light. Together with Chabad of Poway, we’re asking Jews from around the world to do mitzvahs for Poway. Please bring a friend and encourage others to #ShareShabbat.

Simple Steps to Freedom – Lunch & Conversation

The last day of Passover (“Acharon Shel Pesach”) is particularly associated with the idea of Mashiach.

Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov instituted the custom of partaking of a “Moshiach’s meal” on the afternoon of the last day of Passover

Three decades on, and we’re still waiting for tomorrow. Following the lauded JIHAD – in which she spoke to radicalised British Muslims who had…
