Mazel Tov on 10 Years of Judaism in Douglas County
Intermountain Jewish News,Wednesday, August 20, 2014
...Like his brothers, Rabbi Avraham Mintz and his wife Hindy have an incredible sense of how to provide “invisible” Jews with what they may not even realize they want. The Mintzes love each and every fellow Jew regardless of background and level of observance. No judgments. No expectations. Just role modeling and openness. Once the word got out that such a place — and such a couple — existed in a rented storefront, Jews in Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree, Parker and other nearby suburbs started coming out of the wordwork...

Black is the New Orange: Meet the Rabbis of Canadian Jewish Jail Communities
Jerusalem Post,Tuesday, August 19, 2014
One doesn't usually associate Chabad with prison, but alongside a host of other roles in the Jewish community, rabbis in the Canadian city of Quebec have taken it upon themselves to visit and care for Jewish inmates in the province. Not only do the rabbis look out for the Jewish prisoners while they are serving their sentences, but they also provide them with a sense of community, food, a bed and structure after they are released, to help keep them on the right track and prevent them from returning to jail...

Miami Herald,Thursday, August 14, 2014
When Rabbi Joseph Raksin was gunned down last weekend on his way to temple near North Miami Beach, it was the Orthodox Jewish community's volunteer rescue crew, Hatzalah, that responded first and offered aid. When news spread that Raksin did not survive, the Orthodox community — many of whose members didn't even know the rabbi, who was visiting from Brooklyn, New York — flooded the street in front of Bais Menachem Chabad to pray for his soul. They pooled money to offer a $50,000 reward for information that leads to a conviction...

A Rebbe's Life
Canadian Jewish News,Wednesday, August 13, 2014

This includes his father’s longstanding duties as the rebbe’s tax accountant (Telushkin recalls encountering, as a child, the Rebbe’s tax return in his father’s desk drawer); and, more uniquely, a single yechidus, or personal meeting with the Rebbe, which took place in 1968...
