 Weekly Message from Rabbi A. M. Sufrin MBE

Dear Friends,

 

  Another very full week of activities for us at Chabad across Essex. Whisky fundraiser, ladies sem, classes in our Centres for men and women  and in Southend too. We also hosted some 150 people for our grand Hakhel Finale event, all in preparation for the High Holy days. The details of all our services are all now available, make sure you have reserved your place in one of our numerous services for a guaranteed uplifting services – Gants Hill, Buckhurst Hill & Epping for Yom Kippur.

This week we read the portion of “Ki Tavo” – “when you will come into the land of Israel”, discussing “gratitude”….thanking G-d for the luscious fruits of the Land, known as “Bikurim.

Towards the end of the portion,

“And walk in His ways…..” (28:9)

Following the path of the Torah enables the soul to “walk”. Before the soul descends into the body, it experiences G-dliness in a relatively static fashion. Although it can experience some notion of elevation and movement, any new level reached can always be understood in the context of its previous level of spiritual understanding. This is a limited step by step progress.

In contrast, once the soul has entered the body and is able to study Torah and perform the Mitzvos – commandments, it is able to move towards G-d with quantum leaps. This ability enables the individual to “walk” to truly progress in his relationship with  G-d.

With just a week to got to the High Holy Days, it’s time for us all to do a little more “walking”.

Have a lovely Shabbos ad successful week to follow.

 

 

REPORT OF CHABAD EVENTS TEAM

Chabad Events Team (CET) is a small committee formed to deliver 3/4 events a year which will raise funds for Chabad NE.

In this past year we have held 4 extremely successful events.     

  • Our annual sports event "An Evening with  Barry Silkman and Mark Lazarus " which was very well attended and enjoyed by all present.     This was an evening of good company, good food, speakers with interesting tales to tell,  many of which you had not known about previously and lots of humour.   Keep your eyes out for the next one to be held next year.
  • Whiskey Tasting - what's not to like, great whiskeys to taste, questions to answer (best done before you've had the whiskey), tasty food and brilliant company.     We are holding this year's event at Chabad Buckhurst Hill on 19th September.   Put the date in your diary and book your place NOW by ringing 020 8554 1624. This event is dedicated to the treasured memory of Rabbi Moshe Muller z'l.   Who found the "spirit" in everything he did.
  • Quiz Evening - a must for everyone who loves a good competitive atmosphere.    The questions covered lots of topics from easy to those which had your searching deep into your memories for the answers.     Again we will be running this very popular event next year so keep your eyes open for the information.
  • Panel and Q & A Evening on anti-semitism.    We recently held this community event with over 160 people in attendance.   With a great panel Hosted by Rabbi Aryeh Sufrin MBE ,Chaired by Cllr Alan Weinberg MBE and comprising of Wes Streeting MP Ilford North; Arieh Miller Zionist Federation; Russell Langer Jewish Leadership Council and Rony Yedidia-Clein Israeli Embassy with many community leaders in the audience this was an extremely stimulating evening with a topic which is of great importance to all of us.    We are hoping to hold more of these community interest events in the forthcoming year........ Any ideas for topics please let us know
  • Wine tasting evening .............. this will be something new for us and we will keep you informed when details are confirmed
None of this could be achieved without the help of the fantastic CET committee - Laurel and Graham Nygate; Gary Boorman; Leah Shamplin; Pippa Land and Mandi Dobias and the support of Rabbi Sufrin MBE and Brian Mitchell.
