Special thanks to our son for sponsoring the Chanukah Menorah outside
RBS in Giffnock and for the Electric Banner opposite Lidl in Giffnock.
For sure everyone knew it was Chanukah and how many candles to light each night.
The children in the community received Chanukah kids mags with Chanukah Gelt
and Chocolate coins. The community received Chanukah Guides in the post.
Afternoon teas were also held for members of the community

 

45 Men and women crammed into L'Chaim's Restaurant and the Glasgow Lubavitch Centre
on Monday for two seperate Pre Chanukah Lunch and Learn Events.
Event is the Brain Wave of Sora Jacobs who has been running these events for years.
Now Chaim Jacobs also gathered a crowd for his event too.
Besides enjoying a lavish lunch at a discounted price all attendees enjoyed Chanukah
Donuts and inspirational words of Torah about Chanukah miracles, wonders and stories of the past.

35 people gathered at L'Chaim's Restaurant and the Glasgow Lubavitch Centre
this past Sunday for a Lunch to celebrate the 49th Anniversary of Lubavitch in Scotland.

The program included the signing of the Book Secret of Chabad written by California
Chabad shliach Rabbi Dovid Eliezrie.

Highlights of the afternoon were enjoying a wonderful lunch catered by L'Chaim's
and an inspiring talk by Rabbi Dovid Eliezrie who explained the background of how the
Chabad shluchim of the Lubavitcher Rebbe operate throughout the world, and the contribution they
play in building Jewish communities througout the world and how they connect with every
Jew regardless of religious or financial circumstances.

During the lunch all male guests put on Tefillin in memory of those
killed in the Pittsburgh massacre this past Shabbos morning.

 

One of the 10 Mitzvah Campaigns of the Lubavitcher Rebbe
 is to encourage people to keep / eat
Kosher always
Lubavitch in Scotland have a Kosher Restaurant, Cafe and Catering facility.
Through this we are able to always offer people kosher food and functions
at reasonable prices

We also offer  Budget Food Meals
for the elderly and housebound at reasonable prices.

Nobody should not eat kosher due to finance!

 

Why We Should Always Use Kosher Catering

 

 

Monday 3 September

Busy day for the energetic Sora Jacobs who hosted a wonderful ladies Lunch and Learn in Glasgow
today for almost 40 ladies. All enjoyed the wonderful cuisine of Chefs Alistair and Peter.
Menu was a taste of Rosh hashona with Zimmes, saltbeef and latke.
Plus cake fruit and hot drinks.
During the talk Sora urged the audience to undertake additional Mitzvos and good deeds in honour of Rosh Hashona and the New Year ahead.
Part of her message below One small act which improves our... observance of Kashrut, Shabbat, the festivals anything,
even that small act does not go a miss and that is what Rosh Hashanah is therefore.
So as I come to the end of my talk I would like each of us to think of two Mitzvois we will take on to improve ourselves in the coming year.
One mitzvah between us and our friends, maybe to forgive their wrong doing, offer a lonely person friendship, help someone in need.
And also a mitzvah between us and Hashem such as lighting our Shabbos and yomtov on time not later, be more careful about
the kashrus of the food we buy and eat, or maybe stop using our mobile phone on Shabbos and yom tov.

Thursday 6 September
To enable the Community to fulfil the Mitzvah of wearing
KOSHER Tefillin and placing Kosher
Mezuzahs on their doors Lubavitch brought to Glasgow Sofer Rabbi Yitzchak Schreibhant, courtesy of Sholom Jacobs.
It was a
FREE service offered and will be repeated later in the year.
Anyone wishing to have their Tefillin or Mezuzahs checked please be in touch 638 6116.
Writing of the Tefillin and Mezuzahs often fades which then invalidates the items.
We all need Hashem's promise of long life and good health
for oneself and the family so book Your Tefillin and Mezuzah
MOT as soon as possible.
 This blessing comes about thru fixing Kosher Mezuzahs on all doors and wearing
KOSHER Tefillin
daily at least while saying the first two lines of the Shema.

and left around 9.30pm Through the financial sponsorship of the event by Sholom and Pessy

Next Lubavitch event will be the Lubavitch Communal Seder held at Macabi on first night of Pesach.
A few places are still available.
At all Lubavitch events NOBODY is ever turned away from any event due to finance.
L'Chaim's Restaurant was open as usual both this Saturday night and Sunday afternoon.
Because no kosher meat and chicken supplies came up from England this past week,

Chanukah Gifts at Barrland Court

October 2013 marks the beginning of the 45th year
since Rabbi Chaim Jacobs arrived in Glasgow (shortly before he was married)
to set up Lubavitch of Scotland. Chaim and Sora first came to Glasgow
 at the suggestion of Rabbi Jeremy Rosen, then minister of Giffnock shul.
When they first arrived they worked part time for Lubavitch and part time
as youth worker to Giffnock shul teaching in the Cheder four days a week,
and taking withdrawal classes at Kirkhill (120 children weekly!) and Thornliebank
primary school 25 children weekly.
 
Sora also taught in the Giffnock Cheder and the Glen Nursery School and
they both ran weekly Shabbos afternoon children's groups for up to
40/50 children weekly, a weekly girls cookery and handicraft Club for
 teenage girls, and cookery classes for student girls, and Melave Malka Parties
for single men each week. Despite all the challenges over the years they
have never looked back and continue to serve the community
 with commitment and dedication and look forward to continue doing so
for many years to come please G-d.
They and their children are proud to be part of the army of the
shluchim of the Lubavitcher Rebbe

All are welcome at this and all services and events
run by Lubavitch and Shul in the Park.

 

Lubavitch of Scotland Annual Burns Supper

40 people attended the 7th annual Burns Supper at L'Chaim's Restaurant this
past Sunday evening. Sadly several people had to be turned away due to lack of space.
This annual event is held on the birthday of the famous scots poet born over 250 years ago.
The entire event was planned and organised by Sora Jacobs who is co director
of Lubavitch Scotland and manager of L'Chaim's Restaurant and Kosher Catering.
The meal served was a traditional Burns night supper enjoyed by everybody.

Chairman of the evening was Steven Kayne who entertained
the guests with his wit and humour and told the guests about the
history of Robert Burns.

 

The toast to the haggis and reciting of Tam O'Shanter and other
Burns poetry was done by heart by David Clapham who kept the
assembled amused throughout the evening by his enthsiastic recitations.

The reply to the toast to the lasses was given by Sorelle
Kayne who extolled the virtues of a Jewish mother.

During the course of the evening Rabbi Jacobs spoke about the
26th yahrzeit of rebetzen Chaya Mushka Schneerson, wife of the Lubavitcher Rebbe
and about the special relationship between the Lubavitcher Rebbe and Ariel Sharron.
It was the Rebbe who advised Sharron to build and use pontoon bridges to cross
the Suez Canal in 1973 Yom Kippur war. The Rebbe was involved in the design of the
Pontoon bridges used by Nato allies for the Normandy landing at the end of the second war.

A special heart rendering thank you to all the guests was given by Sora Jacobs.
She said that despite the challenges Lubavitch face in the community, it is the
friends and guests who attend our events who encourage us to keep organising
more and more events all the time.
