    This shabbas hundreds came to chabad and celebrated the joyous day
    All through the week there were many activities and classes as students walked in proudly as Jews
    Who won ?

    The criminal act of one who hates does not deter chabad from continuing all their projects
    Chabad counters hatred with love
