After coming home from work at 7:30 p.m. I decided to call my friend to do our yearly tradition which is to go on the train and give out candles wit menorahs to Jewish people that need and to those that don’t we play Dreidel and give out chocolate coins. This time around we were out for a real adventure and surprise. We started off trying to go catch up with the girl’s Mitzvah tank in Manhattan (something I have been wanting to do for a while, but came late from work and missed it in Brooklyn…) Although after a… Read more »

had one of the BEST Released Time groups ever!
Dach tzu mir it was in Paerdegat, Brooklyn
There is such a great need for Released Time group leaders.
Didn’t The Rebbe insist that every 770 Bochur go to Released Time?

I was at that Ashram
December 26, 2017 3:54 pm

I am Mekesher to the Rebbe some 25 years. Please correct. He was not forced and he had a great time at the Ashram School. Obviously not a place for a Jew, but it was not a cult. Just not for a Jew.

Not surprising with Boonya
December 26, 2017 3:51 pm

Boonya, You always have the most amazing stories on Mivtzoyim!
The first time I went on Mivtzoyim was when you pushed me to join you!
Thank you!

אין מגלגלין זכות אלא על ידי זכאי!

Your father was my “Chabad Big Brother”. It is because of him I learned about my Jewish faith, attended yeshiva through grade 8, and am raising children as Jews. He was a great, thoughtful, and extremely selfless man and a special, special soul. He is missed by all those that had the privilege to know him.
