Long Island Holiday Walk Totals 24 Miles for Group of Yeshiva Students


In a distance typically associated with that of a marathon, a group of Chabad-Lubavitch yeshiva students walked more than 23 miles – closer to 24 to be exact – last week to bring an additional measure of joy to the Simchat Torah celebrations in Merrick, N.Y.

The young men, all in their late teens and early 20s, began their journey the evening of Oct. 4 at the resting place of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of righteous memory, in Queens. They walked 12 miles to the Chabad Center for Jewish Life in the Long Island community of Merrick, arriving just before 6:30 p.m. After a little refreshment, they then set out for the town’s other synagogues. At the end of the night, they returned to Queens.

Chabad Course Explores Israel’s Spiritual Side

The Atlanta Jewish Times
Rabbi Ari Sollish

ATLANTA, GA — A new six-part adult-education course from Chabad-Lubavitch’s Rohr Jewish Learning Institute will explore the spiritual connection between the Jewish people and the land of Israel starting at the end of October.

Unlike courses that focus on the history or the culture of Israel, “The Land & the Spirit: Why We All Care About Israel” will explore the mystery of the deep connection between Jews everywhere and that small patch of land in the Middle East.
