A happy Rosh Hashanah to all of you at the chabad and thanks for all the subscriptions.The sound of the shofar was heard the first time and it is indeed powerful, i felt as though the new year has begun already.Thanks for explaining the inner meaning of the Shofar which to me is that like attracts like as knowing the torah and the response it calls for is only by the like which is the jewish people.

The promise from the Lubavitcher rebbe The Rebbe was ceaseless in his call for the entire Jewish people to make every mitzvah opportunity count.
G-d willing, this year we will see Moshiach and experience the full redemption of our entire nation and this world.

Crowning the King What a wonderful world we live in. God is not only King of the Universe, but also the Commander-in-chief of every nation that goes to war. Have we got something wrong? Reply
