Growing Chabad of S. Rensselaer County:
We are glad to have the opportunity to meet more Jewish residents of Greenbush and Rensselaer. We saw new faces at Holiday events, Educational Programs and at the Jewish Women's Circle and we hope to see the Jewish community grow. This is one of the themes of Rosh Hashanah- to reflect on the gift of life. As G-D generously grants us more years, and good health, we strive to commit ourselves to growing spiritually by performing more Mitzvos and refining ourselves.
 
S.O.S: Smile On Seniors
On Friday, September 19th, Chabad led a Rosh Hashanah awareness for Seniors at the Eddy Daybreak in North Greenbush. This Senior Day care lets family members drop off their elderly family member and then pick them up in the late afternoon. Residents, many non-Jewish, had the opportunity to learn about Rosh Hashanah traditions.  Rabbi Laber also explained why we use honey in Rosh Hoshanah foods and residents held some fresh honey comb.
 
Rosh Hashanah Holiday packages were prepared by volunteers from Maimonides Hebrew Day School of Albany and BMC's newly formed TLC: Teen Lamplighter's Club. The packages, consisting of a home-baked round Challah, homemade honey cookies, an apple, and a Rosh Hhashana decoration. More than 50 packages were brought to Seniors at Ohav Shalom apartments and some private homes. Many Jewish residents were so excited to be greeted by young smiling volunteers who eagerly handed them the packages.One resident at Ohav Shalom smiled and asked "Is this "Mishloach Manos"?  If you know of a Jewish senior who would appreciate future Holiday packages or visitors, please let us know. If you would like to be an S.O.S. volunteer, please contact us and we will match you up with a Bubby or Zaidy Buddy.
