Just in the past two months, more than a thousand Catholic High School students from all over the Greater Toronto Area have come to Chabad of Markham to learn.
Rabbi Meir Gitlin, a Shliach in Markham for over 20 years, has been following a clear directive of the Rebbe to create opportunities to teach the seven Noahide laws to non Jews.
In his lecture, he not only discusses and explains the rational reasons and benefits of adhering to a moral code of conduct but the spiritual as well.
Every few weeks or so, two or three bus loads of Catholic students line up outside the Chabad House.
As they enter the building, the students place yarmulkes on their heads and enter the shul to sit quietly and respectfully as Rabbi Gitlin talks and takes questions periodically through his lecture.
“The Rebbe instructed us to do all we can to also prepare the nations of the world for Moshiach through promoting and teaching the commandments which establish morality in the world – the Seven Noahide Laws,” the Shliach told COLlive.com.
“In the last two months, the schools have actually been calling me for an appointment,” he added. “These groups are coming because they’re Heaven sent. It a sign of the times – Moshiach Tzieten.”
