A new sign has been sighted on the outside of the 770-788 Eastern Parkway office building in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights.
A picture of the Rebbe is attached to a quote from a Sicha from Parshas Re’eh 5740. “There has never been a better time to affect another yid in learning Torah.”
The sign is part of a new PR effort of JNet, a Merkos L’Inyonei Chinuch branch, to find volunteers for their Torah learning buddies over the telephone.
They are asking for 30 minutes a week, for three months, to learn with someone on the phone.
“Men and women all over the world sign up to JNet to learn more about yiddishkeit,” a JNet official wrote in a press release.
“They come from all kinds of backgrounds at many different levels. They are looking to learn everything from Alef Beis to Parsha to Halacha to Talmud to general discussion about Yiddishkeit.”
To volunteer or for more information go to www.jnet.org or call 718-467-4400.
