Shliach Dances with Students after Campus BDS Motion Fails

A motion supportive of the boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel was voted down at the University of Ottawa on Tuesday, marking the tenth successive failure for the movement on Canadian campuses. Initially the motion was erroneously announced as passed, only to be corrected ten minutes later, leading Shliach Rabbi Chaim Boyarsky to break out in dance with fellow Jewish students.

Shluchim Partner To Save

How does one inform his family that he was just diagnosed with end-stage kidney failure? That’s the position Harvey was in. He couldn’t. He knew it wasn’t too long before he’d need to go on dialysis (a form of life support). His wife and two young daughters in college would be devastated. Thus he downplayed it.

There is a certain silence that hangs over funerals, quieter still when those being buried are the young, the innocent. Life moves on: traffic lights change, palm trees shed their giant leaves, but it all seems unreal, or rather surreal.

Trump Train Station Planned at Kosel

Israel’s transportation minister is pushing ahead with a plan to dig a railway tunnel under Jerusalem’s Old City ending at the Kosel with a station named after President Donald Trump, who recently became the first U.S. president to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Subway Encounter Brings Hollywood Star Full Circle

In the above photo, Boonya Laskey, a Lubavitcher Young Woman, can be seen giving a Menorah to Hollywood Star Liev Schreiber amid a chance encounter on the New York City Subway during Chanukah. But this is only half the story. Many years ago, Schreiber himself was a student of Boonya’s father, Rabbi Aryeh Laskey, who arranged for him to have an Aliyah with the Rebbe in 770 for his Bar Mitzvah!
