Op-Ed: Why Obama’s Win is Good

by Rabbi Yisroel Bernath – Spiritual Director of Chabad of NDG and Loyola Campus

For the past few days, my world has been saturated with the news of President-Elect Barack Obama. Most of the statements I have heard were very negative or very positive – not much in the middle. Surprisingly, however, both extremes followed a similar theme: “It’s the end of the world as we know it.”

As a Chabad Rabbi, my initial thoughts were against the President-Elect and much of his platform. Weighing his policy towards Israel, a land dear to myself and my brethren, and envisioning a world gone mad held in the palm of his hand, truly pierced me to the core.

History Repeats Itself at Chabad of Rara

RARA, Australia [CHI] — Chabad of Rural and Regional Australia has once again sent out another group of Roving Rabbis to visit Jews living in areas around Australia who are not residing in main Jewish communities. This trip, like all the ones before it, is focusing on bringing Yiddishkeit to these Jews. Mezuzas will be hung, Tefillin will be laid, Bar Mitzvas with men of all ages will be celebrated, Shabbatons, tens of house visits, signing people up to all of RARA’s programs and trying to locate new Jews to add to the 2000+ person database.

Newly-Translated Volume From Chabad’s Kehot Publication Society

LOS ANGELES, CA [CHI] — In a landmark event that will add fresh life to the Biblical story of Creation, Kehot Publication Society, the Chabad-Lubavitch publishing house, and Chabad of California are releasing a new translation of the Book of Genesis. This innovative volume combines religious scholarship and scientific research in a single, reader-friendly text that is available on at Kehot.com.

As the global economic crisis prompts increased numbers of people to deepen their spirituality, this Book of Genesis offers vital guidance, comfort, and hope. The revolutionary work is part of Kehot’s edition of the Torah’s Five Books of Moses that brings the eternal wisdom of Scripture into clear focus for modern readers. The volume features authoritative text in both English and Hebrew, helpful commentary by Biblical scholars, and inspiring insights from the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of blessed memory.
