Reform Rabbi, Students Visit Chabad of South Broward


The rabbi of Hollywood, Florida’s original Reform temple, along with a high school teacher and a group of students, recently visited Chabad of South Broward. They were intrigued and inspired by their hour-long visit.

 

The first stop was a tour of the three mikvehs. Rabbi Raphael Tennenhaus explained to the group how a mikveh is built and when it is used. The girls then davened in the women’s section, assisted by students of the Chaya Aydel Seminary. The seminary, now in its ninth year, has a yeshiva program each Wednesday night. The seminary students invited the girls from the temple to join them for their study program.

The group then assembled in a classroom and Rabbi Tennenhaus spoke to them about chassidus. The students asked many questions and expressed their gratitude for an hour that was both informative and inspiring.

 

Rabbi Tennenhaus has spoken many times in Hollywood and South Broward’s Reform and Conservative congregations, exclusively in their classrooms and social halls. The uniqueness of this particular visit was that learning about chassidus and the chassidic lifestyle was actually part of the temple’s curriculum.
