Statement Re: Pesach Shop

For seven years Chabad of North East London and Essex has opened a Pesach shop each year to assist the community with their preparation for Pesach.

The brain child and effort behind this project was our dear friend Mr Brian Mitchell.

Unfortunately, he suffered a serious setback in his health about six months ago. TG he is making good progress, but unable to continue this project this year.

Sadly we cannot run this project as:

-          We have nobody to undertake this mammoth task.

-          We cannot raise the capital investment needed of approx 25 – 30k to get the project underway.

-          Year on year the take up of this service became less making planning extremely difficult.

-          Last year we suffered an overall loss of £8,000.

We are sorry that we cannot offer this service this year and hope the community will get together to help each other out with their shopping needs. In particular we would ask you to have in mind the elderly and infirm and those without transport of their own.

Wishing you all a very happy and Kosher Pesach.

Weekly message from Rabbi A. M. Sufrin MBE

Dear Friends,   

Another amazing week for Chabad N E London & Essex. Straight from an all around meaningful and great Pesach together with the sunshine we are steaming ahead with our full and varied summer programmes across our Chabad Houses.

Preparations for our annual dinner set for Sunday 21st June with guest speaker Rabbi Israel Lau former Chief Rabbi of Israel are in full swing.

A meeting was held with our Chabad Epping friends group this week and six summer events have now been scheduled, including three Shabbatons and Three educational social evenings.

The next Mens and Ladies Shiurim in Westcliff with Rabbi & Mrs Sufrin will be on Tuesday 5th May.

Details of our joint annual BBQ for Lag B'omer are now available.

The JWC ladies dinner with guest speaker Eva Shloss on Monday 6th July are now taking bookings with a target audience of 200 PG.

And much more......Please see all of our posters on our website and displayed in our Chabad Houses for more details.

This shabbos is the portion of Shmemini....meaning the number eight. It is interesting that with Pesach in the midst of it, we have read this portion or a part of it no less than eight times!

“A fire went forth from before G-d and consumed them.” – Vayikra 9:22

Nadav and Avihu were swept up in the ecstasy of the moment. In their intense desire to cleave to G-d, which they expressed through their unauthorised incense offering, they rose through spiritual heights even as they felt their souls leaving them. From this perspective, their death was not a punishment but a fulfilment of their wish to dissolve into G-d’s essence.

Nevertheless, we are not intended to imitate their example; on the contrary, we are expressly forbidden to pursue such suicidal spiritual rapture. Although it is necessary to seek inspiration and renew it constantly, the purpose of reaching increasingly higher planes of Divine consciousness is to bring the consciousness that we acquire down into the world, thereby making the word increasingly more conscious of G-d, transforming it into His home.

Have a wonderful Shabbos and great week to follow.
