SUNDAY: Unveiling for Sarah Lipets, a"h

Please join us for the unveiling of Sarah bas Yitzchak, A"H, the mother of Marina Pearsall, Alex Lipets & Yosef Lipets.

The unveiling will be held on the Sunday before the observance of the first yartzeit (Jewish anniversary of passing), this Sunday, Feb 1, at 4:30 pm at the Emanuel Memorial Park, 8341 Bissonnet.

A minyan is needed! Please let us know if you can make it!

As we feel the sadness of Sarah's passing we also celebrate the life that Sarah lived. She has deeply touched the lived of many. May her memory be an enternal blessing to all of us.

The family has requested that donations in memory of both of Marina's parents, Sarah & Mark Lipets, a"h be made to Chabad of Uptown online or by mail to 1800 Post Oak Blvd. #140, Houston, 77056.

May we only share simchos

New Class
Next week, we begin a new course you do not want to miss! Acheiving Integrity is a Special Course on Jewish Acheiving IntegrityBusiness Ethics; A 10 Part Journey culled from The Book of Exodus.
The experiences of an enslaved Israelite nation on the path to becoming a free society provides a compelling springboard for the principles and values that define our people. Gain insight and explore the Jewish perspective
on dilemmas in business and workplace ethics. Learn how the Torah makes sense of the mighty dollar, balances Capitalism with compassion and infuses financial life with awareness and meaning.

Thursdays, Lunch @ 12-1:15 pm, evening class @ 8-9 pm.

Chanukah was a blast with events almost every night, and covered widely by the media....

Our very own Can Menorah project was covered by the Houston Chronicle, Jewish Herald Voice, News and TV Channels 2, 11, 13 and again 13 , 26 & 39.

There is a lot more to catch up on, but, no time!

Have a great one and see you Shabbos!
