4,550 Chabad-Lubavitch Rabbis from 90 Countries Visit Rebbe’s Resting Place

Sunday, November 27th, 2016

Chabad at the Ohel

Thousands of Chabad-Lubavitch Hasidic rabbinic emissaries and communal leaders from 90 countries, hailing from as far away as Bangkok and Kenya gathered for the International Conference of Chabad-Lubavitch Emissaries.

The event is considered the largest Jewish gathering in North America. This year’s conference carries an added significance as the North American Jewish community marks 75 years since the Lubavitcher Rebbe—Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory—and his wife, the Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka, of righteous memory—arrived on U.S. shores from war-torn Europe in 1941, setting into motion the world’s most vigorous Jewish outreach program in history.

Its vast success is credited to its cadre of dedicated emissaries families who are willing to pick up their families and move literally anywhere in the world to bring their fellow Jews closer to Judaism.

They continue the legacy of the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory, who spearheaded a global Jewish revival after the Holocaust while expounding upon the Jewish teachings of Talmud and mysticism. Universally known simply as the Rebbe, Rabbi Schneerson is considered to be one of the most remarkable personalities of the 20th century.  Although he passed away twenty two years ago, the Rebbe’s legacy remains as strong as ever.   ‎

Weekly archaeological finds are incontrovertible evidence of the Jewish connection to this land. Now it’s in the footsteps of King David to the fortified city of Sha’arayim, in the Valley of Elah where David fought Goliath, as described in the book of Samuel. The Bible Lands Museum in Jerusalem has mounted an outstanding exhibition of artifacts from that location that shook the academic world. See it with Walter who paints pictures in sound.

How: The Arabs try to destroy all evidence of the Jewish connection with Temple Mount, by illegally digging there and tipping everything into Arab Landfills.

‘Orthodox Jewish’ Horse Violates the Sabbath to Win Triple Crown

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

American Pharaoh, the horse and not the politician, raced to a Triple Crown with a win in the Belmont States on Saturday, two days after the horse’s non-Jewish jockey visited the grave of the Rebbe of Lubavitch.

Jockey Victor Espinoza, not to be confused with the early 18th century heretic Baruch Spinoza, said he visited the Rebbe’s grave on the advice of a Jewish friend.

American Pharaoh’s owner is Ahmed (Ephraim) Zayat, an Orthodox Jew from Teaneck, New Jersey and is considered one of the most flamboyant of horse race owners. As at the Preakness and other races, Zayat watched the Belmont Stakes without violating the Sabbath.

When there is a big race, he always stays in a hotel or in a recreational vehicle nearby and then walks to the race track.

He moved from Cairo to the United States in 1980, at the age of 18, returned to Egypt after learning at Yeshiva University and earning a master’s degree at Boston University, and began investing in racehorses after his beverage company was purchased by Heineken.

Zayat returned to the United States and founded Zayat Stables which eventually went into bankruptcy

He finally hit the jackpot with American Pharaoh, who did better for Zayat than other horses he has owned, such as Maimonides.

Will he next horse be named “Aliyah”?

Haifa U Research Confirms, ‘Think Good & It Will Be Good!’

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

A study conducted by researchers at the University of Haifa has confirmed what the late Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson of righteous memory, always told his followers in the Chabad-Lubavitch Chassidic movement: “Tracht gut un zein gut!” (Think good and it will be good!)

The study led by Professor Dana Yagil from the university’s Department of Human Services, found that “suppressing positive interpersonal emotions is detrimental to employees as well as to customer satisfaction.”

“The expression of natural positive emotions is well received by the other party,” Yagil observed, adding that it is “likely to contribute to customer satisfaction and customer loyalty.”

The findings were published in the journal Motivation and Emotion. “Suppression of positive interpersonal emotions is contrary to natural behavior in social interactions,” Yagil said. Among service employees working in call centers, marketing and sales, employees are often expected to maintain a neutral demeanor. Yagil found that neutrality comes at a “price,” however.

Some 246 participants of various ages, employed in customer relations, were included in the study.

The findings indicated that suppressing negative emotions was linked to positive customer satisfaction; suppressing positive emotions increased the sense of employee inauthenticity, which in turn increased customer dissatisfaction.
