Last Sunday a worldwide campaign to encourage people around the world to put on Tefillin and light Shabbos candles for the safety of Israel was a great success.
People around the world, from South Florida to California, New York to Brazil, London to Israel to put on Tefillin and gave out Shabbat candles for one hour, from 12 -1 pm.
This week, the organizers are redoubling their efforts and urging everyone to join them again each Sunday for one hour on behalf of our brethren in Israel now that they need us more than ever.
We are not there to fight with them against our enemies. They’re fighting for us and Jews all over the globe. We can and must however lend a hand and support them in this fight spiritually by wrapping Tefillin on Jewish men and giving out Shabbat candles to be lit by women Friday evenings.
The Lubavitcher Rebbe explained that these two Mitzvot more than any other have the power to tip the scales in favor of our people and against our enemies. When a Jew puts on Tefillin G-d’s glory descends upon us and throws fear into our enemies. When a woman lights Shabbat candles G-d promises to give us back the light of Zion.
It’s in our hands! Let’s take this moment and make a difference!
Please call your local Chabad, email us at [email protected] or join our Facebook event if you wish to join our Mitzvah Campaign and lend a hand of support to our brothers and sisters in Israel. We will direct you to a local mall or hospital this Sunday from 12 noon – 1pm. Please send us pictures as well as your names and your mothers’ names which we will then send to the Ohel of the Rebbe for blessing to all participants in this holy task.
We hope you will stand with us and Jews all over the world.
