“When a Jew performs even one Mitzvah, one time, they form an eternal, deeply intimate bond with HaShem, one which He deeply treasures and in which He delights forever. It’s worthwhile to set personal matters aside and make time to help another achieve this”

Mezuzah Protection Campaign

The Ambassador of Light / Mezuzah Protection mission is to ensure every Jewish home in British Columbia has Kosher Mezuzahs affixed to the doorposts of their homes.

This campaign has two parts.

Part One: CHECK MY MEZUZAHS WITH THE FIRST EVER BC TRAVELING SCRIBE

For those who already have a Mezuzah – bring them for a check-up to the first time ever local BC traveling scribe. A certified scribe will be at various Chabad Centres throughout British Columbia for the first time ever special to check your mezuzahs. Please come by and bring your mezuzahs during the day to be checked by the scribe for authenticity or errors. It’s best to mark which mezuzahs are from which doors in your home so they can be reinstalled on the same door after the check up. You will also have the option to book a time for the Rabbi to come directly to your home to re-install your Mezuzahs – or you can take instructions on how to do it yourself. (Some centres are also hosting a full scribal art event. See your centre below for details).

Part Two: FIRST TIME FRONT DOOR MEZUZAH.

Be an Ambassador and introduce the gift of Mitzvah Mezuzah to a Jewish friend, co-worker or family member who doesn’t yet have one on their front door for only $18. (You can also purchase additional Mezuzahs with specially arranged sponsored discounts which will be available only during the time of this campaign).

There is no cost to come and see the scribe.
The Cost for checking Mezuzahs is $10. First one is free.
If it’s not Kosher- there is no charge for checking.

About Mezuzah

A mezuzah is a symbol of Hashem’s watchful protection over us. It is an encased scroll of parchment that is rolled up and affixed to the doorpost of our homes, serving as a declaration and reminder of our Jewish identity. The Hebrew words of the Shema prayer are handwritten by a Scribe on the inside. On the outside, the Scribe writes one of Hashem’s names: שדי״, an acronym for “Guardian of the doorways of Israel.” A mezuzah is a constant reminder that our day-to-day lives are sustained and protected through Divine blessing.

Divine Protection

“A king of flesh and blood sits inside his palace, while his servants guard him from outside. By contrast, Hashem’s servants sit inside, while Hashem guards them from the outside.”

Divine Design

“Many people think that their success comes from their good fortune. We disagree. We place a mezuzah on the doors of our home to declare that our success comes from a Divine blessing.”

Spiritual Protection

A mezuzah can be compared to a spiritual “helmet” over the home, constantly protecting its occupants wherever they may be and safeguarding them from harm. In challenging times as these, Jews need even stronger reassurance and awareness of G-d’s everpresent watchful eye.

Affixing a mezuzah to our doorpost helps us affirm our Jewish identity and declare our faith in Hashem as our Guardian. By observing this mitzvah, a Jew is protected and derives the strength needed to stay firmly rooted against the winds of turbulence.

A Certified scribe will be in your area, specially to check your Mezuzahs.

The Torah with Rashi, Targum Onkelos, Haftorot, and an interpolated translation and commentary based on the Works of the Lubavitcher Rebbe

Publisher: Kehot Publication Society

Format: Hardcover 8″ x 10″ 1528 Pages  

The single-volume edition includes an interpolated translation based on the acclaimed interpolated translation originally prepared for the five-volume Kehot Chumash. This interpolated translation renders the text of the Chumash intelligible to the reader, enabling him or her to understand it as Rashi explains it and as the Rebbe’s elucidates Rashi’s commentaries.

Hundreds of Chasidic insights culled from the works of the Rebbe and his predecessors supplement the lucid translation. Each parsha (Torah reading) is preceded by a concise introduction highlighting its particular theme as it considers the Torah’s message. Helpful introductions precede each haftarah, designed to provide the reader with historical and literary background as an aid to study of the prophetic lessons of the haftarot and their relation to the weekly parsha.

The single-volume features newly drawn illustrations and professionally prepared maps, and is beautifully typeset on durable paper bound with materials specially designed to enable years of intense use.

The Talmud states “One who wishes to be a chasid, should practice the words of Avot (Ethics of the Fathers).”

Now, with the release of Pirkei Avot: With a New Commentary, Anthologized from the works of the Classic Commentators and the Chasidic Masters, that daunting task has become that much easier.

Compiled by well-known author and translator Rabbi Yosef Marcus, and published by the Lubavitch publishing house, Kehot Publication Society, the volume gives the reader a comprehensive and fundamental understanding of Pirkie Avot. Anthologized from hundreds of commentators, classic to obscure, the commentary is crowned with the insights culled from the voluminous works of the Lubavitcher Rebbe and his predecessors.

Tehillim with commentary from the Talmud, Midrash, Kabbalah, Classic commentators and the Chasidic masters

Tehillim . For simple poetic genius, for pathos, sweetness and heartfelt piety, King David’s Book of Psalms is unique.

The Psalms are songs of praise to the Creator, speaking of His greatness, goodness and mercy, as well as of His power and justice. The Psalms reflect the full spectrum of life’s experiences, both of the individual and of the Jewish nation collectively.

No wonder than that throughout the ages, Psalms has served as a boundless source of inspiration, courage and hope.

Rabbi Yosef B. Marcus has once again compiled a staggering treasure house of commentary and insights on this fundamental text, offering us a deeper appreciation for every letter and every word of Psalms.

Anthologized from hundreds of commentators, classic to obscure, this work will allow Tehillim readers to bring newly-found inspiration and meaning to their daily, weekly and monthly recitations.

The commentary is rounded off by an incisive Introduction, bibliography and index. The physical appearance is likewise enhanced by original artwork, two-color printing and an elegant deluxe binding.

Tanya Hebrew/English- $45 cdn

Author: Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi
Translators: Nissan Mindel, Nissan Mangel, Zalman Posner, Jacob Immanuel Schochet
Publisher: Kehot Publication Society
Format: 6″ x 9″ Hardcover, 1168 pages

The Tanya considered the “Written Torah” of Chasidism, is now studied by tens of thousands of people, from all walks of life. The Bilingual Tanya has contributed enormously to this global interest, by both stimulating and sating the quest for deeper involvement in Chasidut, in those to whom the orginal Hebrew text remains inaccessible, not only on the intellectual level, but as a modus vivendi.

We are pleased to present a newly revised edition of the classic Likkutei Amarim Tanya – Bilingual Edition.

First published in 1973, the Bilingual Edition has become the standard translation of Tanya.

Seeking to bring the teachings of Tanya to an ever-wider readership, we have implemented the following revisions and features:

  •  The Sefer has received a aesthetic facelift, presented in fresh, easy-to-read typeface.
  • The Hebrew text has been reproduced from the recently revised Hebrew edtion of Likkutei Amarim Tanya (Kehot, 2010).
  •  The original translation of the five parts of  Tanya was the work of a number of translators. As such, the rendition of terms, the transliteration of non-English words, and the general system of translation varied from part to part. In the present edition, we have endeavored to provide a more consistent style throughout the work.
  • All outdated translations of Scripture found primarly in the Likkutei Amarim, Part 1, have been updated.
  • Numerous errors in the text and source footnotes have been corrected.
  • All footnotes appear on the page where they are refrenced. In instances where the English translation and footnores were too lengthy to appear on one page, the facing Hebrew text is repeated on the following folio, and the remaining English translation continues opposite. A grey bar alongside the Hebrew text denotes the section corresponding to the translation.
  • The english supplements section has been completely revised: to further enhance this section’s usability, it has been renamed addendum, with an independent pagination system reading from left-to-right, and the information comprised therein has been restructured in a user-friendly order. The glossary originally appearing to Part I has been updated to cover all five parts of the Tanya, and detailed indices and a bibliography have been added.

 

Includes the title Mystical Concepts in Chassidism, an excellent guide to the intricate concepts of Jewish mysticism.
