“Please join me for My 3rd Birthday and Upshernish Ceremony”

BAA_3496.JPG“Please join me for My 3rd Birthday and Upshernish Ceremony”

Hi my name is Mendel, soon I’ll be three. So we’re having a party especially for me.

It’s more than a birthday as you’ll read in this rhyme. We’re cutting my hair for the very first time. “Upshernish” is Yiddish, it means cutting hair. A Kippa & Tzitzit, I’ll now start to wear. The Torah compares a little boy to a tree. Whose fruit may not be cut until it turns three. If its roots are well nourished it will grow strong and pure. Then the tree just like me will always stand secure. Join me on my special day and cut a snip of my hair. A Simcha is better when friends and family share

Love Mendel

Why Shayna is in NY!

KinusW.jpgToday, my wife Shayna left for New York for the annual Shluchos conference, which brings together over 3000 women from across the globe. The conference, or Kinus as it is affectionately known, is five days of profound inspiration, learning and camaraderie from where the women who represent a vast array of Chabad educators, leaders, teachers, Chabad Center Directors and more, return even more enthused to serve their respective communities.

The conference coincides with the anniversary of passing of Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneersohn, of righteous memory, on Shevat 22. Today, Wednesday Shvat 22 is her Yartzeit. For a five minute video about this remarkable woman of valor, scholarship and dignity, go to The-Rebbetzin.

What Oprah saw at Chabad

This week Oprah Winfrey has been showing a 2 part series on an Inside look at the Hassidic world. She interview the beautiful Ginsburg family, she interviewed an interracial Hassidic Family, and she conducted interviews with Hassidic women to get their take on the role of women in the Hassidic world.

I think this series is a great eye-opener into a world that many are either mindful, curious, wary, or in awe of.

Check it out the clip below and see this beautiful story!
