When children are educated with love and concern, who benefits? When people can turn to friends for help in times of physical or emotional distress, who benefits? When individuals are accepted and welcomed regardless of financial, religious or cultural status, who benefits? When vibrant Jewish communities are established and flourish in our midst, who benefits…?
Dear friend, we all benefit. The above ideals comprise the very essence of Chabad. Over the years, Chabad has grown in leaps and bounds because people increasingly recognize and appreciate its warmth and non-judgmental philosophy.
Children are being educated in lively Jewish environments at our Shabbat and holiday programs, school and summer day camp. Adults are attending Chabad’s classes, lectures, luncheons and personalized study sessions. Families are discovering a new Jewish dimension to their lives through our synagogue, our beautiful mikvah and our outreach programs. Seniors are enjoying visits and Yiddish cultural concerts. However, if our community is to continue to reap these benefits, we need your help.
On Sunday, 4 Iyar, April 30, 2017, Chabad will be hosting a Gala Dinner Celebration, marking 18 years of commitment to our community. While we look with pride at the accomplishments of the past, we focus on the future with a vision of growth.
This event is a significant source of funds as well as a joyous and heart-warming occasion. We call upon you to participate generously – please click here. This year, as we plan the opening of the Revere Jewish Montessori Preschool, we have been fortunate enough to receive a generous pledge from the Revere Family who will match, dollar for dollar up to $100,000, all pledges made by May 30 and paid by December 31, 2017. The funds raised will be used to outfit the classrooms with Montessori inspired equipment and materials, to make the required modifications to the playground and to ensure we are there to care for the next generation.
Chabad is a partnership organization. We offer you to share in “mitzvas” and “nachas,” for it is only through your support that our outreach and educational activities can continue and flourish.
Our esteemed honorees, Tennessee Governor, The Honorable Bill Haslam, Mr. Bernie Pargh and Mrs. Dianne Berry look forward to receiving your kind response and greeting you personally at our celebration. Thank you in advance for your generosity and may G‑d, in turn, bless you with good health, happiness and prosperity.
Rabbi Yitzchok and Esther Tiechtel
