And the winner is…

As you know our 2016 Raffle drawing was held earlier this week. We are very grateful for the degree of community participation and support. This year’s raffle exceeded the success of previous years.

In truth, the winner is each and every one that participated. Because in doing so you have furthered Chabad’s ability to continue providing the important services and resources to the New Orleans community and our region.

Your support makes it possible for:

A Young Jewish Professional to have an opportunity for Jewish connection in a warm family environment.

A Jewish prisoner to be visited by a Rabbi who provides spiritual guidance and moral support, not to mention a friendly face, during a very low-point in life.

An Israeli liver transplant patient and his family to feel like there is hope and caring during a difficult and scary situation.

A Jewish person seeking a meaningful adult educational experience to find a class, lecture or mentor to quench their intellectual and spiritual thirst.

A Jewish child at a school across the region to experience the richness of our holidays and traditions through the Living Legacy Workshop Series.

A local or visitor seeking a Minyan to find one… A person in need of Jewish life-cycle assistance to obtain that… A senior to have a valuable Jewish interaction… A New Orleanian to have an elevated Holiday experience such as Chanukah @ Riverwalk… A Jew to receive a calendar or holiday publication.

A Jew in New Orleans to forge a real relationship with a Shliach or Shlucha, who will be there for them through life’s ups and downs.

This is especially true during this period in the Jewish calendar, the three weeks of mourning and reflection over the Beit Hamikdash (Holy Temple). Isaiah prophesied that “Zion will be redeemed through justice and its captives through Tzedakah.”

The winners of the Chabad Raffle 2016 are:

Grand Prize winner: David and Naomi Mendick of Olney, MD.

Second Prize winner: Helen Stone of New Orleans, LA.

Third Prize winner: Andrea Merlin of New Orleans, LA.

Again a very heartfelt thank you to each one that participated. We are humbled by your support.

Our heartfelt condolences to Batia & Joe Slater and family, her mother, Dale Spizer Aronson, and the entire Aaronson/Spizer family upon the passing of Jean Spizer. May Hashem comfort the family among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem and may the only know of happiness from here onward.

Shabbat Shalom
Rabbi Mendel Rivkin
