Keep up the Great Work!

Like was mentioned above What a great job a Shliach is doing in our own backyard! There are us Lubavitchers living in Flatbush, Kensington and Boro Park and there is so much to be done here as we are Shluchim of the Rebbe wherever we are! The Litvish teach us how to be friendly to one another and we chant the 12 Pesukim with their children and get them ready to greet Moshiach!

This is what its all about

I, too, was so blessed by a Rabbi Marazov and his wife Frumi. I have lived only 1/2 of Imich’s life, yet when Rabbi Choni Marazov and Frumi came into my life, my soul yearned for my Judaism. It is NeVeR too late to learn and thrive on what our souls were created for, Baruch HaShem, for the Marasovs.

this is so amazing

Beautiful Story. This is the kind of news we need.

Very inspiring. Would be nice, however, if the head tefilin were above the forehead (and to be tightened if knot in back is too low) and, on the arm, further up and inward, so he can actually fulfill the mitzvah (and not say the brakhah in vain). Otherwise, keep up the good work!

Amazing. My wife went to visit him a few weeks ago. Turns out this man was older than the woman who recently passed away who the media proclaimed as the oldest holocaust survivor. This man was older at the time of her passing. The press had it wrong.
