"May Hashem provide peace and harmony to the families of the first responders, especially retired HPD Police Officer Barnes hurt and lifelighted from Santa Fe ISD, may they come home in peace to their families' embrace". 

What an amazing Shavuos with overflowing crowds for all night learning, 10 commandments and, of course, cheesecake! Shavuos, the day we mark the receiving of the Torah at Mt.

B'H, at Chabad of Uptown, you have many Torah study options to choose from

Israel under Fire + Pics, vid and babies

It always seems that we live in historic times. Now is one of those times, with the threat of our enemies exposed, thwarted and beaten back. Our thoughts and prayers are with Israel this week, as the blessings of military success and safety are flowing.

עיני ה אלוקיך בה מראשית השנה עד אחרית שנה, the Land that the Eyes of Hashem are upon it from the beginning until the end of the year. (Devarim 11:12).

May Hashem continue to protect the Jewish people from our enemies
