Hewlett Chabad Organizes Prayer Group for Israel Safety

Rabbi notes importance of putting on Tefillin for the security of the Jewish people.

The following story was submitted to Patch by Chabad of Hewlett

The Chabad of Hewlett called the community together to offer prayers Sunday morning in memory of those who were killed in Israel, for the speedy recovery of those wounded and for lasting peace. 

"With Israel under attack, a call to action is needed," Chabad of Hewlett Rabbi Nochem Tenenboim said in response to the violence in Israel. "We have been in touch with the Chabad community in Kiryat Malachi [where Gazan missiles landed] and have offered our support and prayers."

For many people that came to the Sunday morning meeting, it was a time to show solidarity as Jews as well as offer spiritual support for those in Israel.

"We had some really lively discussion about the current events, but we also took some time to reflect on the events," said Tenenboim, who grew up in Israel. "The Talmud teaches us that in times of danger there is a great need for unity and prayer, especially the Mitzvah of Tefillin."

Tenenboim said that the Chabad of Hewlett will continue to host the Tefillin Club every Sunday Morning at 9 a.m. at their new location across from the Hewlett train station. Everyone in the community is welcome regardless of affiliation. A light breakfast will be served. For more information, visit www.jewishhewlett.com
