Chabad  offers a wide range of programs for the entire Jewish community. No membership is necessary, and we welcome all — regardless of affiliation or background.  

Chabadprovides a non-judgmental, welcoming environment for Jewish families and individuals to explore our rich heritage.

With the end of summer looming we hope you enjoy the Dutchess County Fair – keep an eye out for the Rabbi and Rebbetzin as well!
Wishing you a Shabbat Shalom!

Rabbi Hanoch and Tzivie Hecht

Short thought

See, I give you today a blessing and a curse (11:26)

See, I give you today the blessing and its transmutation.

(Yonatan ben Uziel’s [Aramaic] translation of the verse)

“See” — Moses is giving the Children of Israel the power of sight — to perceive that the true nature of evil is nothing more than a transmutation and distortion of the Divine good. When evil is thus seen, it can be transformed into the good that it essentially is.

(The Lubavitcher Rebbe)


 Jerry was at a marriage seminar, and the leader of the seminar, a lady, was asking everybody how long they were married for. When it was Jerry’s turn Jerry said that he was married for almost 50 years. “Wow” the leader gushed “that’s amazing, perhaps you can take a few minutes to share some insights with everybody, how you stay married to the same woman for so long. “Well,” Jerry said after thinking for a few moments, “I try to treat her nice, buy her presents, take her on trips…………. and best of all, for our 25th anniversary I took her to the Bahamas.” “Well that’s really beautiful, and a true inspiration for all of us” the lady said “maybe you can tell us what you are going to do for your 50th anniversary” she said with a smile “Well” Jerry said “I’m thinking of going back to the Bahamas to pick her up.”

Moshiach and the Future Redemption    


On a deeper level, the tragedy of galut isn’t limited to physical displacement, and is not necessarily defined by persecution and suffering. Galut is a time when G-d’s presence is concealed, when nearly all perceptible traces of the relationship we share with Him have vanished. We don’t feel or see G-d’s love for us, and we don’t really feel like His children. We may study His Torah and follow His commandments – and we are told that by doing so we connect with Him – but we don’t feel it..

The Rhinebeck Jewish Center is a project of Chabad Dutchess.
