In times of joy and sorrow, the families, singles, children, and elders of the Five Towns know they have a place to go: 74 Maple Avenue. This shul transforms itself daily to a school, community center, event center, and more to meet the community’s needs. Chabad is inaugurating an innovative program that allows the community to give back and dedicate a space at this sacred home.
A beautiful Tree of Life is being lovingly dedicated by Sholom and Pessy Jacobs and family in memory of his grandmother, Anne Eskovitz, Chana bas Leah. Anyone can purchase a leaf on the tree, for a monthly contribution ranging from $180 and more. Imagine the excitement when you can point to your leaf each time you come to Chabad, knowing your leaf helped make possible the programs you love.
Rabbi Wolowik, director of Chabad of the Five Towns, explains, “Under the guidance of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, o.b.m., Chabad has made ahavas Yisrael, love of a fellow Jew, the driving force that gives it momentum. Acceptance of every Jewish person on their own level, regardless of their background, observance, age, or financial status, has become a trademark of Chabad. Chabad of the Five Towns has touched the lives of many through our multiple youth clubs, bar/bat mitzvah clubs, seniors’ programs, Hebrew school, Friendship Circle, Bagel Babies, daily Torah classes for men and women, Gan Chamesh preschool, Jewish Learning Institute . . . the list goes on and on.”
