A Chassidic Rosh Hashonah This Week

While most Jews celebrate Rosh Hashonah at the beginning of the school year, Chassidim tend to add extra times for celebration and introspection.

This year’s Thanksgiving holiday coincides with the 19th day of the month of Kislev, which is celebrated as the new year of Chassidism.  It was on this date, in the year 1798, that the founder of Chabad Chassidism, (and noted author of the Tanya) Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi (1745-1812), was freed from his imprisonment in Czarist Russia.  More than a personal liberation, this was a watershed event in the history of Chassidism, heralding a new era in the revelation of the “inner soul” of Torah teachings that has positively influenced all practice of Judaism today.

Please join us at a Chassidic gathering taking place this Saturday night, November 26, 7 pm at the Jewish Enrichment Center, 4740 Table Mesa Drive Suite B.  At this informal gathering , we will sing and discuss the significance of and relevance of this unique event in our daily lives, hoping to make a deeper connection to our Judaism.  Light refreshments will be served.  For more information about Yud Tes Kislev click here.  If you would like to rsvp: lubavbldr@cs.com or 303 494 1638.
