Film Screening: “White Right: Meeting The Enemy”

When Deeyah Khan was six, her father took her to her first anti-racism rally.  A Pakistani immigrant to Norway, he promised her that things would get better and that the skinhead gangs that terrorised their family and families like them would soon find themselves relics of past prejudices, that bigotry belonged in history, that tomorrow would be a more tolerant time. Three decades on, and we’re still waiting for tomorrow. Following the lauded JIHAD – in which she spoke to radicalised British Muslims who had…

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

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.
