Our New Torah goes National!

This Sunday we celebrated the completion and dedication of the new Sefer Torah donated by Marge Fettman, and a beautiful crowd of people showed up to honor the new Sefer Torah. Kids and adults participated with much fanfare and enthusiasm as the Torah was finished in the park, and we danced it into shul. Many news outlets, both local and national, picked up the story. You can read some of the articles at the following links:

You can see a small sampling of pictures from the event over here on our website:www.skokiechabad.org/2302371/

Report from National Jewish Retreat

The word is in and it's official! The National Jewish Retreat is the best getaway of the year, with top-of-the-line food, entertainment, and nourishment for the soul. This land-cruise had our Skokie participants floating on cloud nine! Mixed metaphors aside, you can see some pictures and snapshots from this year's retreat at https://www.facebook.com/jretreat.  Mark your calendars so you can join the Skokie delegation next year, from 8/6/14 through 8/10/14!

Mazal Tovs

We extend a hearty Mazal Tov to Sid and Lisa Weiser on the engagement of their daughter Rivka to Ephraim Schnaidman, son of David and Esther of Teaneck NJ. May they see much Yiddishe, Chassidishe Nachas!

Timely Reminders

During the month of Elul, which began this week, we say "L'Dovid" (Sidur p. 76, 115, 220, 267, Old Sidur p. 81) in Shacharis and Mincha, we blow Shofar each morning after davening, and recite three chapters of Tehillim per day, concluding on Yom Kippur. It is customary to check Tefillin and Mezuzas during the month of Elul, if this hasn't been done recently.
