Eicha Reading & Movie Screening 9:00 - 10:00 PM


"With My Whole Broken Heart"
A New Documentary

In the summer of 2001, two Jewish teenagers were hiking near their homes in the West Bank when they were stoned to death by Palestinian terrorists. A few months later, Daniel Pearl, a reporter for the Wall Street Journal, was kidnapped and murdered in Karachi, Pakistan; his last words: "My father's Jewish, my mother's Jewish, I'm Jewish."

With My Whole Broken Heart is a professionally-produced and emotionally-gripping 45-minute film featuring heart-wrenching stories of valiant parents whose children's lives were claimed by terror and their inspiring responses to their horrific experiences. The documentary also follows the lives of two of the youngest survivors of Auschwitz and Buchenwald who emerged from the darkness and transformed the Jewish landscape.

The film is framed around the Rebbe's response to the 1956 terror attack in Kfar Chabad that claimed lives of 5 students, and features interviews with Daniel's parents, Ruth and Judea Pearl; Sherri Mandel, mother of Kobi Mandell; former Israeli chief rabbi, Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau; and Rabbi Nissan Mangel.

What happened on the Ninth of Av?
A Historical Overview

The 9th of Av, Tisha b'Av, commemorates a list of catastrophes so severe it's clearly a day specially cursed by G‑d. Another confirmation of our deeply held conviction that history isn't haphazard.

The Laws of Mourning

As part of our mourning for the destruction of the Temple and the exile of Israel, we abstain from many pleasurable activities on the night and day of Av 9, first and foremost: eating and drinking.

IDF Tefillin.jpg


  Thursday, July 24 at 6:00 PM

Our hearts are with Israel. We have lost 32 of our finest and many more are wounded, while our brothers and sisters in Israel are still being bombed daily, and anti-Semitism has erupted around the world.

We need to get together and pray for our soldiers and for Israel's safety. As the Talmud says, "We can only rely on our Father in Heaven".

Please come on Thursday, July 24 @ 6:00 PM to the Chabad center for some Torah study, Tefillah-prayer, and Tzedakah-chairty.

The men will don their Tefillin (please bring along your Tefillin if you own a pair), and all of us, men, women and children, will recite Tehillim (Psalms) together. An inspiring video presentation of the Rebbe speaking about the safety of Israel will be shown.

May G‑d Almighty answer our prayers for Israel's security, and for a true and lasting peace with the imminent arrival of Moshiach!



*See THANK YOU video from the soldiers for the letters we wrote & sent them.
