Editor's Note: Your Purim Getaway

Dear Friend,

If you’re in the Northeast like me, you’ve had enough of winter. You want it away, and if it won’t go away then you will. Thankfully, Chabad has you covered. With Purim just around the corner (March 4-5), Chabad will whisk you to a local Purim celebration that will put you in another time or place.

Live around N.Y. or N.J.? Celebrate Purim in England, Paris or under the sea. Near L.A. you can Purim party like they do in Israel, Dallas and even at the circus! If Florida is where you reside, then try Purim in the Wild West, the jungle or the farm. Celebrate Purim in Hawaii in Boise; Purim in China in Leeds; and Purim in Italy in Reading.

There’s Purim in the 70’s, 60’s, and even the 1920’s! Can’t get far enough? There’s even an Intergalactic Purim!

But for me – I’ll even take a simple Purim in the shul.

Need to find your local Purim celebration? Click here for your ticket to a Purim celebration. And drop a line to your local center letting them know that you’ll be there – they will appreciate it!

Happy Purim,

Moshe Rosenberg
on behalf of the Editorial Team

The Wisdom of Modesty

Last week I carried out a social experiment...

The two great Torah commentaries of Rashi and Nachmanides debate the arrangement of the bells and pomegranates on the edge of the high priest’s robe. The Rebbe sees this as a discussion on the nature of noise, imperfection and superficiality.

The Power of Memory

It isn't mere coincidence that every totalitarian regime in history, as the first step in cementing its hold on the people under its rule, has first exerted control over their memory...
I Saw the Beautiful Soul Trapped Within the Addict

“You didn’t know the real Josh,” his father told me when I came to his house during the shivah. “You knew him only after he became a user.”
The Tail of Vashti

When I was sixteen, I went to Israel for two months and gained about twenty pounds. I had been thin, even skinny, my whole life and never gave my weight a second thought...
Your Questions
Is Animal Testing Kosher?

I was wondering whether, from a Jewish perspective, it is okay to sacrifice animals for research and therapeutic purposes.
Services Every Week?!

I go jogging every Friday afternoon and often pass your synagogue. I see you are getting some nice crowds. To be honest I don't see why people go to services every single Shabbat.

The teachings of Chabad Chassidism open the gates to the chambers of wisdom and understanding, enabling one to know and to recognize--with intellectual comprehension--"He who spoke and the world came into being." This awakens the feelings of the heart so that it is aroused with the emotion engendered by that particular intellectual comprehension. And Chassidism shows the way that each individual -- commensurate with his innate abilities -- can "approach the Sacred," to serve G-d with his mind and heart.
— Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak of Lubavitch

Some gripe that they cannot reach out for G-d‘s help because they are not worthy.

Others celebrate that they have a G‑d who answers their cries, regardless of how unworthy they may be.
