Volume 16 Number 18, 23 Shevat 5775, Feb. 13 ‘15

 

Message from the Rabbi
 

This week we marked the 22nd of Shevat, the anniversary of passing of Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka, wife of our Rebbe, of righteous memory. It is also the weekend when thousands of female Chabad emissaries from around the globe gather in Brooklyn for their annual conference. Many of these women regularly juggle communal, educational and familial duties with legendary finesse. In fact, it’s only this week—when they’re gone for a few days—that many rabbis back home suddenly realize how huge a burden their wives carry.

So, as Chabad rabbis all over the world fly solo for Shabbat, let’s all make sure to express our appreciation to the wonderful women in our lives—and hope that the chicken soup thaws and cooks okay.

Rabbi Yeruchem Eilfort

Minyan

Our daily Minyan has been a tremendous source of good will for our community. Several people have been able to utilize the Minyan in order to say Kaddish for a loved one. Others have become accustomed to the great Mitzvah of davening with a Minyan because there is one readily available. Beginning this week, a couple of our regulars will be out of town for the next several weeks. We therefore need a few additional commitments so that the Minyan doesn’t slow down, G-d forbid. We are asking those who are able to make a commitment to the Minyan to please do so now. Some people are counting on our Minyan to be able to recite Kaddish for their loved ones. This is tremendously important. Please commit to a day or two per week (at the very least). People who have joined the Minyan have universally reported that they find the experience uplifting and have described it as a great way to start the day. Please respond to this message if you are able to help us in this regard.

Learn the Code of Jewish Law with Rabbi Eilfort  

A daily class in practical Jewish Law is held immediately following the Minyan taught by Rabbi Eilfort. Using the Code of Jewish Law, known in Hebrew as the Shulchan Aruch, participants are able to discuss the laws while learning about the ongoing opportunities one has to serve the Almighty on a moment-by-moment basis. The class begins at about 8:50am and lasts for about 20 minutes. There is no charge to attend.

Hebrew School

Hebrew School takes place on Sundays at our storefront location. We specialize in children with an IEP. We provide a one on one individually designed Jewish education for your student. Please contact Hebrew School Director Morah Nechama for further info or to enroll your child/ren.info@ChabadatLaCosta.com.

Are you looking for a place to meet other mothers with children the same age as yours?

Join us for Music and Movement, Story-time and Challah baking and more! At Chabad at La Costa’s Children’s Center (Storefront Location) – 7740-E, El Camino Real, Carlsbad.

This class is complimentary! RSVP to Nechama 760 612 9787.

Memorial Plaques & Tree of Life Plaques Available

Our beautiful Memorial Boards have been installed. We specifically designed our custom-built bookcases to ‘frame’ each of the boards. The first Memorial Board was dedicated by the Brunelle Family and the new Board was dedicated by the Alter Family.

We are currently offering Memorial Plaques to those who wish to perpetually honor the memory of a loved one in a most dignified and permanent manner. Those who dedicate Memorial Plaques will also receive yearly reminders of the Yarzeit and the light on the Board will be illuminated each year on the Yarzeit.

We also have a gorgeous Tree of Life dedicated by the Lieberman Family that will shortly be going up. The purpose of the plaques on the Tree of Life is to commemorate joyous occasions (like Bar/Bat Mitzvah, anniversaries, special birthdays, weddings etc.).

The donation is only $360 per plaque for either the Memorial Board or the Tree of Life. Those who wish to participate should send an email toinfo@ChabadatLaCosta.com, or call Rabbi Eilfort at 760-943-8891.

Cell Phones & Chatting During Services

Needless to say the sanctuary on Shabbat or holidays is a place that must be conducive to reflective prayers and serenity. To help keep it this way, please refrain from engaging in any conversations during services and please do not bring in your cell phone. Thank you for your cooperation.

Shul Etiquette

Those who join us regularly for Shabbat services will agree that we have something very special going. The family-friendly atmosphere is unique and most inviting. We welcome everyone as though he/she is a long time member of the family.

At the same time it is important to remember that we are a synagogue. Our sanctuary is meant to be a place where it is conducive to finding inner peace and tranquility. That is why the Rabbis have many laws concerning the decorum of a shul.

It is appropriate to dress modestly and to dress somewhat formally in shul. Men should wear button down shirts, slacks (no jeans or shorts), with jackets and even ties when possible. Of course the head is to be kept covered at all times. Women should wear skirts that go past the knees and blouses with high neck lines and sleeves that cover the elbows. Married women should wear hats and the like.

Children must be supervised at all times by the parents except during Junior Congregation (11:30am). While we want the children to have a great time together it is also important that they do not become so wild and/or boisterous that they disturb those of us who are participating in the services.

We must remember that we should walk to shul and never park in the parking lot if there already eight cars parked. Finally, and we fully realize this goes against Jewish DNA, it is appropriate to come to shul ON TIME. While we know everyone is vying to be counted as the 10th, we are equally sure Hashem will give extra credit to those who come ON TIME at 10am (not to be confused with 11:30). We look forward to seeing you here!

Volume 16 Number 17, 17 Shevat 5775, Feb. 6 ‘15

 

Message from the Rabbi
 

Do you talk to your plants? If you do then this week would have been the right time to wish your trees a very happy new year! Yes, this week marks 15 Shevat, the “New Year of Trees,” one of four New Years listed in the Talmud.

Now, why do our leafy friends need a New Years of their own? So you can know how to tithe them properly.

Now that’s a lesson in Jewish life. The basis upon which this entire holiday—and so many other Jewish milestones—is built is our deeply felt obligation toward others.

10 Commandments THIS Week

Be sure to join us in shul this week as we will be reading the 10 Commandments! The 10 Commandments are representative of the entire Torah, and the very basic tenets and foundation of our faith is found within them. It is considered a great Mitzvah for every Jew to come to this reading, so be sure to make it a priority. Services begin at 10am and the Torah reading will commence at about 11am. Don’t be late!

MAZEL TOV! IT’S A BOY!

We are excited to announce the engagement of Rivka Eilfort to Rabbi Yonah Fenton of Lexington, MA! Yonah is an accomplished student in Yeshiva who has already been awarded Rabbinic Ordination from two different Yeshivot. He is also an accomplished musician (not unlike his bride). We will be introducing Yonah and his family to the community on Saturday, March 14th, G-d willing.
