Thanks for Giving

Dear friends,

We hope you're having a pleasant Thanksgiving break.

Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks for the goodness and blessings in our lives and offer prayers for each other the world over.

This is an opportune time then, to express our gratitude for all the great friends that support our work all year round

  • Participating regularly in our minyan and be at call whenever a minyan is needed, whether for a yartzeit or a funeral, a bris or a wedding!
  • Volunteering in our many social service programs, community programs, Shabbat, CTeen, YJP Houston and everything in between.
  • The community who fills our beautiful shul and programs with beautiful people. After all, a shul with no people, is a pile of stones.
  • Through contributing monthly in our Chai Club. Your monthly donation adds up and makes a great difference in covering Chabad's operational budget!
  • The donors and funders who keep the wheels greased to help us cover our budget

As we share in this spirit, we are thankful for your support, your friendship and enabling our important work at Chabadof Uptown and YJPHouston.

Thank YOU for being you!

Happy Thanksgiving and Shabbat Shalom,

Rabbi ChaimChanie

NY will be in NJ

Greetings from the annual international conference of Chabad Lubavitch Rabbis! As the 5000 emissaries gather in NY, you may click here for a look at the past year, with fifty stories that have taken the Jewish world. The highlight is the closing banquet that you may watch live on Sunday evening at www.chabaduptown.org/kinus. Actually, as reported in the Wall Street Journal, the banquet had to be moved to NJ to accommodate the huge crowd.This weekend we will be celebrating the Bar Mitzvah of Alex Karni and look forward to a meaningful Shabbos!
