An opportunity to be uplifted and inspired

Friday, 8 November, 2013 - 12:03 pm

We have all had the chance to meet interesting people throughout our lives. Sometimes we hear fascinating life histories from those people. However, I do not think that many of us have had the opportunity to meet and hear from a person with as fascinating a life story as Yaakov Parisi. A former Evangelical Pastor in Oklahoma, he spent years of his life searching for meaning and fulfillment. That search finally brought him to the doorstep of the Torah and Judaism. His journey was not an easy one – not a single step along the way was smooth. Fifteen years ago he became a Jew. He spent the next decade heavily immersed in the discovery of the many facets of his new faith. Today he is an ordained Orthodox Rabbi who has embraced the teachings and inspiration of Chabad. He has spent the last several years traveling and sharing his story with audiences around the world.

He connects with people in a very real way and his story has left people uplifted and inspired. Please join us at Chabad House on Tuesday night (Nov 12) at 7 PM for an uplifting evening with this special man. For more information – www.chabadneworleans.com/444630.

Our annual raffle for 10K and other exciting prizes is underway. The drawing will be held on December 10. To view the prizes or to purchase a ticket, go to - www.chabadneworleans.com/raffle.
