Re-Open our Shul? Never!

My Dear Friend,
How can we "Re-Open" something that was never really closed. Our Community Center has been in overdrive since we couldn't meet in person. Yet, as things emerge from quarantine so must we in our Shul!

THIS FRIDAY in honor of Shavuot we will read the Torah! The FIRST Time in over 3 months! Everyone is invited! However, we will do it "Smartly"!

1) Masks Must be warn for the duration of the srvice.
2) We will have the Torah reading outside! (weather permitting)
3) Hand sanitizer will be at the front door -Please use
4) Social Distancing will still be in effect. So: Kids should stay with their parents and chairs should stay where they are placed. Families may sit together.
5) We will NOT stay for a Kiddush or socializing.

It is prudent to remind everyone; If you don't feel well, stay home. If there's any question if you should attend ask your healthcare professional. If we all work together we can continue to function as a Community Center AND keep everyone safe! Thanks for understanding and your help getting through these difficult times.

So in Short:
This Friday, May 29th we will Read the Torah and say Kaddish at 11:00 AM 
Ice Cream will be distributed for you to take home. So bring the kids!
Shabbat, May 30th, Torah reading Kaddish and Yizkor 10:00 AM (Sharp)

Dear Friend,

In the days of the Baal Shem Tov a dreadful disease ravaged his hometown, Mezibush. Men, women and children were falling to this epidemic.  Out of desperation, the community asked that the Baal Shem Tov daven/pray on their behalf.
The Rebbe responded that the annulment of the decree was in  their hands and that the entire community participate in writing a new Torah. They accepted and the Baal Shem Tov instructed his Sofer/scribe to begin writing this Healing Torah. Lo and behold, as the Torah was written, the community began to heal.
In these difficult times of pandemic and isolation, it is more important than ever to stand united. A  Unity Torah for Healing in Florida is currently being written. Our thanks to Rabbi Klein for spearheading this tremendous project. This is our way for all of us to stay safe.
Each letter is only 1 dollar! Dedication opportunities available. Please click here for details and to get a letter for each of your family members!
Let us together storm the heavens and eradicate this virus from our midst!

Say NO to Social Distancing!

Yes. We must stay physically apart from each other. We MUST make sure to curtail the spread of this horrible virus. But we should NEVER be socially distant from one another!
Allow me to explain the TREMENDOUS opportunity that is available to us. 
When was the last time that you paused EVERYTHING in your life, stopped work, travel, you even cut back on going out grocery shopping! Was it when you last went on vacation? But when was the last time you did this AT HOME!?!
Now, look around you. REALLY, look around. Are you 'stuck' at home with a spouse? With the children? Maybe a sibling or a few?
How about you put down the phone, got off the computer and went over to them. You sit down next to them, pick up their hand and look them square in the eyes! What do you think would happen? OK, maybe they'd think something was wrong at first, maybe that you're already going stir crazy (or just plain crazy!), but how do you think they'd react?
There has not been an opportunity like this in over 100 years. Where we are being told to stay home with our loved ones and given the opportunity to spend TRUE and QUALITY time with them. Try playing a board game, telling stories or even cards. Tell each other jokes, or better yet, speak to them about what's really going on in your life!
Don't be distant from your loved ones. Practice 'Social closeness' with the people that you love. From a safe distance! But get closer.
As many have already surmised we will NOT have any services or classes etc. at our Community Center for the next week (at least). So here are a few links to help:
For those that have the need to say Kadish after a loved one please use this link to have someone say it on your behalf.
At Chabad we have over 10,000 Hours of Torah classes and lecture online ready for you to view, listen or loin!
Here's a Playlist to keep you busy. Click here


Special for Teens

Rabbi Eli will have a LIVE discussion special for teens. Entitled: How strong must my faith be, or should I listen to the doctor and take the medicine? A look at the crossroads of Faith and practical action.
Tuesday at Noon. Join the video conference by clicking here
Link will only work Tuesday at Noon!
(allow the Zoom app to open or download to join the virtual video room)


Special for Younger Children

Want to teach your child about Passover? Want them to learn the songs, have a craft project and ENJOY hearing about our heritage? And from YOU!?!
Here at Wellington Chabad we are preparing a 'Passover Hagadah Craft' booklet. It will have pages for coloring, some games and will come along with the stories for you to share as your child learns about this great holiday.
Please help us by replying to this email. Let us know if we should prepare this FREE gift for your child. 
Know someone else that can benefit from this? Send them the email or send us their address. We hope to have these in the mail within the next 2 days
