G-d’s Bank Account

A word from the Rabbi


Dear Friends,

A few hours before the onset of Yom Kippur each year, the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, would enter the synagogue for prayer, holding a bag of coins. The tables were covered with scores, perhaps hundreds, of charity plates, representing an array of causes, from food for the needy and assistance to poor brides, to schools and mitzvah campaigns and more.

Deliberately and methodically, despite his impossibly tight schedule, the Rebbe would place a coin into each plate, taking great care not to skip a single one. Each represented a community or an individual who needed help, materially or spiritually.

In his urgent desire to help each individual, the Rebbe did not consider even one of them to be insignificant.

Emulating this extraordinary example, by digging deep into our own resources to fill the plates of others, we encourage G-d to throw open His bank account of abundant blessings to each of us, to be judged with mercy and compassion for a truly happy, healthy and sweet year. And G-d, we know, has plenty to give.

*   *   *

At Chabad where many turn to fill their plates with spiritual inspiration, Torah learning, or practical tools to enrich their Jewish experience, we try to do our part.

Year-round we work with extraordinary urgency and devotion, motivated by the constant awareness that every individual is an entire world.

We are able to fill those needs only thanks to wonderful, caring people like you who, recognizing the importance of this mission, happily partner with us to provide the necessary funding.

As Yom Kippur quickly nears, I ask you:

tzedaka boxPlease open up your heart wide and help us fill the plates of the Jewish People.

Please dig deep into your personal reservoir of kindness and partner with us to help others!

Remember: For many who turn to us every day, we – you! – are their only Jewish lifeline.
