Reserve now for Next Week’s Shabbat Dinner


On Friday, January 25, enjoy Shabbat dinner with friends, followed by an interesting presentation.

· Do we have the basic knowledge of what the Torah expects of us in the business world, or how to conduct ourselves when it comes to money?

· What do you know about day-to-day business ethics?

· What happens when special situations arise, and you may need to do something questionable?

· Has the Jewish educational system given us and our kids the tools to be good Jews in the real world?

· Can Moses succeed on Wall Street, in the office, in the supermarket, or even in a friendly transaction between two friends?

Shalom Menora will answer these questions and more, based on his 30 years of experience in business both in Israel and the U.S. Shalom, who originally hails from Chicago, currently lives in Israel, where he runs his real estate and hi-tech investment company. He is on the board of the Jewish Business Ethics Center in Jerusalem.

$24/adult, and $14/child for Friday night Shabbat dinner with supervised play for children. Reserve online now for a $2 discount per person at www.SkokieChabad.org/2095522

Report On Men’s Breakfast Event

The inaugural men’s breakfast and learning took place this past week. Attendees were treated to an abundant repast including pancakes and omelet prepared by short-order chefs Brian Alexander and Hiam Naiditch. Many of those who partook of the breakfast stayed on for Rabbi Posners presentation on “Corporations in Halacha.” He discussed many instances where Halacha needs to determine ownership and how the Halachic definition may vary from the legal definition. He also showed how the evolution of the legal view of corporations and shareholders can affect the Halachic status.

The audio from Rabbi Posner’s presentation is now available, please contact our office if you would like a copy. Pictures are up on the website at http://www.skokiechabad.org

We thank Hiam Naiditch for being the driving force behind this event, and his committee of Brian Alexander, Yehuda Leib Burgeman, Evan Loiterman, Rob Phillips, Dr. Berel Polisky, Steve Rosenberg.

Timely Reminders

Earliest Tallis: on Mon: 6:19 am - Fri: 6:16 am *
*) The time we are posting is primarily with our weekday 6:30 minyan attendees in mind. If someone must daven earlier, please be aware that there are other opinions of how to calculate this.

Monday, the 10th of Shevat, is the Yahrtzeit of the sixth Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn (1880-1950). It is also the day, one year later, that his son-in-law Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson formally assumed leadership. For more information you can read here or here or here. Many Chasidim want to be called for an Aliyah on this Shabbos in keeping with the Rebbe’s directive. If you would like an Aliyah, and have not yet notified us, please do so ASAP via email to info@SkokieChabad.org, so we can make sure that everyone is accommodated.
