Thoughts from the AIPAC policy conference
Sitting in a hall with 10,000 supporters of Israel is really a special thing. Sitting and listening to the president speak, is a lifetime experience ( though we could do without much of the content of his comments) Thinking about Jewish history and where we are today is mind blowing. But standing together with so many Jews of different backgrounds is just always the coolest thing! We are here with a delegation of about 40 young adults and interacting with so many Jewish people all united in support of Israel just makes me want to scream “am yisroel chai”!
But its not just Jewish people.
I little while back, I was walking through Stanley Korshak and I heard a voice call out ” are you a Rabbi?” I turn around to see an african american sales women , I asked ” how do you know?” And she proceeds to tell me how much she loves the Jewish people. She is an Elder at the Potter House church and wanted to know many things about Judaism. She came over to Chabad some time later with a bunch of questions and even attended a service.  I had mentioned to her that she should get active in the pro Israel community. She said she would love to. It turns out that one of her clients at Stanley Korshak was one of the biggest activists in Aipac. To make a long story short, she is now with us at the conference as we spread the message of cross religious and denominational support of Israel.

The Magical Mystical Tour- Brooklyn-July 8th-10th.

Sounds romantic? Sounds like a dream?
Why watch a documentary when you can experience it and be a part of it.
We spend a friday night swaying to the enchanting sounds of melodies 1000 years old, taste the same food that we as a people have tasted for generation. 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.
