Chabad Celebrates Move to Former Firehouse
Palm Beach Post - FL,Thursday, April 23, 2015
... “We kept the integrity of the building as the firehouse because it’s very meaningful for us,” said Rabbi Dovid Vigler. “Fire is something people are initially afraid of and when the approach it, they realize that with it they can cook and weld and build and warm and heal. It’s the same thing with our faith. People often times are reluctant to approach their faith, but when they do approach it, they realize that isn’t as fearful as it was from a distance.”...

Jewish Link - NJ,Thursday, April 23, 2015
...In his remarks, Sen. Booker praised the work of the Friendship Circle and everyone involved with the organization. “You see the truth, the dignity and the worth of every child,” the senator said. “That every child should be celebrated and elevated because you see someone created in God’s image.

Inspired at Early Age, ‘Frum’ Writer Targets Younger Audience
Pittsburgh Jewish Chronicle,Wednesday, April 22, 2015
...Altein spends about two and half hours writing and revising each page, she said, and as the mother of five and co-director of Chabad, she has to squeeze in writing time between programming responsibilities and child rearing. But while being a mother has limited the time Altein has to write, she does benefit as an author from listening to her own children, she said. “Now, when I write about kids that are my kids’ ages, I can be true to their voices,” she said. “They are a good frame of reference.”...

CJC Vital to Vassar’s Jewish Community
Miscellany News - Vassar,Wednesday, April 22, 2015
...When news of their presence first came about the arrival of the CJC, people were suspicious—myself included. Students had heard the myths about the “Chabadniks” as they were called, and some of the loudest anti-CJC cries came from none other than Jewish students on campus. I can safely and proudly say that every single one of these myths—from the legendary van used to convert students to the idea that they refuse to let women speak to the rabbi—are ludicrous...

Menorah Outside Chabad Jewish Center Vandalized

...Tiechtel said it is his hope the experience will strengthen the local Jewish community. “At a time when light is challenged, we give our commitment for strong Jewish life and pride on our campus and all across the world,” he said. “A little bit of light could change the way of a lot of darkness. We must realize how important it is to educate, learn, reach out and come together to ensure that such things do not happen again.” Tiechtel said an effort has begun to restore and rededicate the menorah...

Solano County’s Jewish community celebrates the start of what is likely the first Torah ever to be copied specifically for them, when the first lines of a new parchment scroll are laid at a ceremony in Vacaville on Sunday.

Under Gray Skies But in Bright Spirits, Marathoners Hit the Road
Boston Herald,Monday, April 20, 2015
...In Hopkinton, Rabbi Mendy Kivman, a chaplain of the Milford Police Department and head of the region’s Chabad, decided to set up a “kindness booth” for the first time this year to offset the damage done in 2013 by the Tsarnaev brothers. Kivman said he’s asking spectators, regardless of faith, to fill out a card pledging to do a good deed today. “Everyone’s connected to God through mitzvah,” he said. “Mitzvah means good deed. These two guys ruined everything for everyone. This used to be a carnival atmosphere. Can you imagine if we get 5,000 people today to commit to doing a good deed? We’d counter what two people did.”...

Campus Vandalism Against Religious Symbol
WCIA-TV - Champaign, IL,Sunday, April 19, 2015
Members of the Jewish community feel disgraced after they say someone knocked down their religious symbol. They say a menorah in front of the Illini Chabad was knocked down on purpose, right before they begin a week of cultural and religious celebration. This week is National Israel Week, a time for Jewish and Non-Jewish communities to come together to support Israel. The menorah, which was damaged, is a symbol showing their light has been taken from them...

In 2013, Benji achieved his apotheosis when he was honored by Chabad-Lubavitch Alberta to light the menorah with the Mayor of Calgary at the City Hall, and to recite the blessings in front of a crowd of 500-plus, in the city-wide Chanukah celebration that was televised and streamed live on the Internet...
