Dear Friends,

Rabbi Nochum Kurinsky.jpgWhen individuals can feel accepted and welcomed regardless of financial, religious or cultural status, who benefits? When children are educated with love and concern, who benefits? When Jewish people go to prison where are they to turn? When people can turn to friends for help in times of physical or emotional distress, who benefits? When vibrant Jewish communities are established and flourish in our midst, who benefits?

Dear friend, we all benefit. The above ideals comprise the very essence of Chabad and its annual dinner. Over the last thirteen years, Chabad has grown in leaps and bounds because people increasingly recognize and appreciate its warmth and non-judgmental philosophy.

Children are being educated in lively Jewish environment, Adults are attending Chabad’s classes, lectures, JLI and personalized study sessions. Families are discovering a new Jewish dimension to their lives through our synagogue and outreach programs.

However, if our community is to continue to reap these benefits, we need your help.

On Sunday, June 5th, Chabad will be hosting its annual Dinner celebration, marking our Bar Mitzvah year... 13 years of commitment to our community (can you believe it?). While we look with pride at the many accomplishments we have experienced in the past, we focus on the future with a vision of growth.

This years dinner is especially meaningful as we honor our dear friends and Executive directors of Chabad of North East Florida Rabbi and Yoseph and Rivkie Mrs. Kahanov, Daniel levy, and Mrs. Samara Gilbert. They have all demonstrated Love, care, involvement and selflessness.

This event is a primary source of funds for the year. It is also a joyous and heartwarming occasion. We call upon you to participate generously in this vital campaign by joining us and placing a message of greeting in the Dinner Ad Journal.

Chabad is a partnership organization. We offer you a share in our “Mitzvos” and “nachas,” for it is only through your support that our outreach and educational activities can continue and flourish.

Our esteemed honorees and I look forward to receiving your kind response and greeting you personally at our celebration. Thank you in advance for your generosity and may G‑d, in turn, bless you with good health, happiness and prosperity.

Sincerely Yours,

Rabbi Nochum Kurinsky
