A Personal Note From Menachem Schmidt

Dear Shliach, 

At the kinus this past weekend I signed up for the 2nd Annual ShabbaTTogether happening all over the world on Feb 7-8, 2020, Parshas Beshalach. Many of you saw me at the ShabbaTTogether table at the resource fair where over 220 more shluchim signed up to be a part of this exciting event!

Right now,  more than 450 Chabad Houses on 6 continents have signed up to participate in ShabbaTTogether 2020 where Chabad Shluchim around the world will harness our global power of unity and share the message of the Rebbe that each soul, each with a unique purpose,  is essential to who we are as a nation and as a community.

There are a large group of shluchim involved in pushing this effort. I am personally hoping and working to make sure that at least 1000 Chabad Communities participate this year.

Together, we can lead our communities and the communities around us to become more aware and proactive in welcoming people with disabilities and to be more supportive of people with mental health conditions.  We can help people recognize what Chassidus teaches us- that we all have a shared identity, a Jewish soul and everyone deserves the chance to belong.

**Let your community know about the steps you have taken towards unity and harness the power of the kinus into action by sharing the attached email/social media graphic with the post: 

    • “Chabad of _______ is so excited to join the global effort of #ShabbaTTogether2020 on Feb 7-8 to highlight Disability Inclusion and Mental Wellness in our community! More info coming soon.”

Stay tuned for all the FREE resources to make ShabbaTTogether in your Chabad House and community a joyful, meaningful celebration.
