Shabbat at Chabad

Even as we look forward to the holiday of Shavuot, our hearts are heavy with worry. Once again, Jewish people in Israel are under terrorist attack.

In this critical time, we all ask:

What can I do for Israel? How can I help my brothers and sisters in the Holy Land?

Obviously, Israel’s government, army and police are striving to do all in their power to protect the nation’s citizens. But there is much we can do as well, no matter how distant we are geographically.

The Torah teaches us (and history has repeatedly demonstrated to us) that the physical protection of each one of us – and, indeed, our very collective destiny! – is intrinsically connected to our spiritual activism. Click here for some ideas, because everything we do DOES make a difference.

Torah Portion: Bamidbar
Rabbi Tzvi Freeman

Every society has that which bonds it: A common ancestry and a system of lineage. Or a common language, or common borders, or governing body. Usually, it is a combination of several factors that mold a mass of people into a single whole.

The Jewish people are unique in that they have only a single nucleus—and it is none of the above.

All that bonds us is Torah. Nothing else has proven capable of holding us together for more than a generation or two. Nothing else, other than the same Torah that first forged us as a nation.
