Chabad Of South Broward To Hold Daf Yomi Shiur

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

Daf yomi will be returning to Hallandale on August 3. The daily study of one page of Talmud will start again at the Chabad of South Broward, 1295 East Hallandale Beach Boulevard. Rabbi Mordy Feiner, director of the South Broward Kollel for Businessmen and Professionals, has announced the new (13th) cycle.

The custom of the daily daf was started in Eastern Europe by Rabbi Meir Shapiro, zt”l, of Yeshiva Chachmei Lublin. Excitement for this endeavor has been further intensified by the recent publication of the English edition of the Steinsaltz Talmud by Koren Press.

Rabbi Raphael Tennenhaus, executive vice president of Chabad of South Broward explains, “There are new features in the Steinsaltz English translation of the Talmud. This publication will inspire more students to study Talmud, including some students who will opt for the daf yomi.”

The many adult education classes offered by Chabad of South Broward include chassidus every morning at 6:15, several daily Rambam classes, a daily Mishnah class and Talmud every evening.

The Hallandale daf yomi will be held every day 45 minutes before Minchah. Shabbos daf yomi is one hour before Minchah. Friday daf yomi will be held Thursday nights after Ma’ariv.

To register for the Hallandale daf yomi and for further information, contact Rabbi Mordy Feiner at MordyFeiner@gmail.com.

Entertainment scheduled for Chanukah festival is sure to be a hit.

The festival will be preceded by a hundred-car menorah parade, starting from the Yeshivah Gedolah of Greater Miami. The festival is a Florida Friends of Lubavitch event. Rabbi Levi Tennenhaus, coordinator and program director, encourages those who can afford it to get reserved seating. “The event is, as always, free” said the rabbi. “However in addition to our major sponsors, individuals may reserve VIP seats for $100 per and help defray the enormous cost.”

Chanukah marks the birthday of Chabad of South Broward. The first Chabad Center in Broward County, Chabad of South Broward now runs over forty programs and institutions. The organization is headed by Rabbi Raphael and Goldie Tennenhaus, who came to Broward County in December 1980.

Reform Rabbi, Students Visit Chabad of South Broward

Thursday, November 4th, 2010

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.

Flood Damages Chabad Center

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

A surprise flood on Thursday night, December 17 and early Friday morning December 18, has destroyed the Chabad Preschool and the main offices of Chabad of South Broward Headquarters. The flood that came without any warning damaged a relatively small geographic area, specifically Hallandale Beach and the coastal cities nearby.


The hardest hit area of Hallandale Beach was Hallandale Beach Boulevard and 14th Avenue, the intersection where the Chabad center is located.  It will take several weeks to know the extent of the damages to the synagogue and mikvaos.


An emergency fund has been set up to help Chabad continue their schools, move into temporary offices, and continue all their programs. Donations may be sent to Chabad of South Broward, 1295 East Hallandale Beach Blvd, Hallandale Beach, FL, 33009.    


 Donations can also be wired to ABA# 063000021, Wachovia Bank N.A.,

Three Mikvaot To Open For Physically Challenged In South Florida

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

   Three mikvaot for the physically challenged will open on Sunday, September 6, in Hallandale, Florida.  It is the first mikveh project of this nature in Florida.  The endeavor provides special ramps, prep rooms, and hydraulic lifts that will make the mikveh experience pleasant and dignified for a significant segment of South Florida’s Jewish population.

  “Until now, people with disabilities either endured extreme hardships when using a mikveh, or stopped fulfilling this ancient mitzvah due to the inconvenience and humiliation,” said Rabbi Raphael Tennenhaus, Chabad’s executive vice president, who spearheaded this project several years ago.


   The mikveh dedications will take place at the 28th Annual Dinner of Chabad of South Broward, at the headquarters of Chabad of South Broward, located at 1295 E Hallandale Beach Blvd.  Chabad of South Broward is home to Congregation Levi Yitzchok- Lubavitch, Broward’s first Chabad Synagogue, the Hallandale Hebrew School, the Chai Tots Preschool, the Chaya Aydel Seminary, the summer-and-winter Camp Gan Israel, and the Kollel for Businessmen and Professionals.


     The general mikveh project will be named, “Mei Menachem-Mikveh Israel,” dedicated in honor of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M Schneerson, and in memory of Rabbi Yisroel Tennenhaus, brother of Rabbi Raphael Tennenhaus, who passed away earlier this year.


    The women’s mikveh, “The Elana Leah Women’s Mikveh,” is being dedicated in honor of the complete and speedy recovery of Elana Kasle, a student of the Chaya Aydel Seminary, who was seriously injured on December 23, 2007, by a car on Hallandale Beach Blvd. She still needs everyone’s prayers. Her full name is Elana Leah bas Shaindel Rochel.


    The men’s mikveh will be named “The Yoseph Mordechai Men’s Mikveh.” It is being dedicated in memory of Reb Yoseph Fellig, father of Rebbetzin Goldie Tennenhaus.
