You never know who’s looking at you. About 5 years ago I put a video on “how to put on Tefillin” on the web, I have gotten incredible feedback from various sources over the years, the video even made it on all the networks when they had the “Tefillin bomb scare”. But the best of them all happened this week. I get a facebook message from a young guy from St. Petersburg who had just moved to Dallas and he said he wanted to get involved with Chabad, he had heard that we do work with young adults. So I right away invite him over for Shabbat dinner, on the way home from Shul we were chatting about his background and what got him to Dallas and how did he reach me. He told me that a while back in Russia, his Rabbi there got him a pair of Tefillin for his birthday. Not knowing how to put them on, he googled how to put on Tefilin. The first result was my video on “how to put on Tefillin” and he noticed that the handle on the youtube account was chabad in dallas. “being that I knew I would be moving to Dallas soon, I started looking at the other videos and decided that I would connect with you once I got here”. I was obviously really excited, it totally made my night!
For better or for worse, this world is a small place. Whatever you put out there makes a difference.

We experience 1000’s swaying in a meditative prayer stance… and on Sat. night we party in Manhattan. Sunday, we pray at a gravesite believed by many to be miraculous. And in the evening we dance our hearts out with the two young Texans who would be graced if you joined them.
