Message from the Rabbi
Dear Friend,  

This past  Monday, Fruma Hurwitz got married. Surrounded by family & friends and watched online by thousands of others, many bittersweet tears were shed. Fruma is the daughter of Rabbi Yitzi Hurwitz, a dear colleague who has suffered for five years now from ALS.  Thank G‑d Yitzi was able to participate in his daughter’s wedding.
How touching and beautiful it was to see the bride crouch down next to her father's wheelchair to receive a blessing from him, right after she was veiled by her groom. Unable to move or speak, Yitzi's eyes exuded warmth and love. 

Yitzi continuously shows us how to focus and appreciate what we have, and not on what we don't have. 
Below is the Torah thought Yitzi wrote (using his eyes & a special computer) in honor of the wedding. 


May we all merit the comforting words of the prophet Jeremiah that we sing at every Jewish wedding:
"Od yishoma b’orai yehudah uvechutzos Yerushalayim" - “The day will come when the sounds of joy and happiness, the sound of the groom and the bride, gladness, jubilation, cheer and delight, love, friendship, harmony and fellowship will be heard once again in the cities of Judah and the streets of Jerusalem. May it be with Moshiach, very soon!

We need your help to get our calendar ready for printing. If you have placed an ad or special dates in our calendar in the past,  we ask you to please do so again this year. 
If you haven’t in the past, please consider placing a greeting, business ad, or a special family date such as birthdays or  yartzheit. 
Even a small participation, will go a long way not only in the success of our beautiful calendar project, but in support of the important work Chabad of Scottsdale does for the Jewish Community. Thank you.
