Announcement by Junior N’shei of Crown Heights and Mikvah.org:
With Tishrei behind us, it’s time to settle into a routine of sorts. Jobs, school and sleep schedules that were disrupted by the Yomim Tovim are finally getting back on track. (Yes, kids, 8 o’clock IS a normal bedtime, and yes, there IS school tomorrow.)
It’s time to take the energy and inspiration of Yom Tov down to a practical level. Into our work life, into our parenting and into ourselves.
On that note, and in the spirit of Hakhel, Junior N’shei of Crown Heights and Mikvah.org, have planned their opening event around the theme of Sholom Bayis.
“Built to Last”, an inspirational evening for women with Mrs. Bluma Rivkin will cover many of the Rebbe’s teachings about marriage and establishing a Jewish home. In the Rebbe’s famous words, “May their home be an everlasting edifice on the foundations of Torah and Mitzvos.” If your foundation could use some restoration, and your tools have become a little rusty, it’s worth devoting an evening to.
Mrs. Rivkin, Shlucha of Louisiana says that she’s “no expert” on marriage, but what she did gives her experience enough. Together with a group of friends in her hometown of New Orleans, Mrs. Rivkin began learning the sefer “Shidduchim V’Nisuin” in the z’chus that their children should all find their bashert and build a “binyan adei ad”.
Fast forward 12 years and all those children are Baruch Hashem married, and their mothers not only completed learning the original sefer, but Eternal Joy as well.
Along the way, they accomplished an unintended goal- their own relationships were strengthened, both in marriage, family and with friends. Mrs. Rivkin will summarize what she learned as well as distribute a booklet that she compiled. Among other things, it contains the translation of a yechidus and guidance from the Rebbe Rayatz to Rebbetzin Miriam Gordon, a”h, Mrs. Rivkin’s mother, which she gave permission to distribute after 120 years.
The event will also feature a Grand Raffle with prize packages that you/your kids/your husband will love. See the flyer for details as well as how to receive an early bird discount!
All attendees will receive free admission as well as a free gift while supplies last. A delicious soup and salad bar will also be available, courtesy of Kaff Kafe and Raskin’s Fruit Store.
Save the date and program your calendars for Monday, October 19th, Vov Cheshvan at 8:00 pm at Lubavitcher Yeshiva Big Hall, 570 Crown St. Program begins at 8:30.
