It’s the Twentieth!


In January of 2000, the first Solon Chabad newsletter was printed. For the next 19 years, each month, a newsletter was published.

As we enter the twentieth year, it’s time to take a pause and reflect. 

When the first newsletter appeared, we were still in the basement of the Solon Professional Building on Aurora Road. What a journey!

This is an opportune time to thank G‑d for all the blessings and thank all of you for joining us on this wonderful and exciting undertaking.

Looking forward to many more years of fun together!

60 Days of Good Luck

Super Bowl Sunday is a day of celebration across the United States and no matter who wins, it will lead us straight into two months of happiness.

The joyous holiday of Purim is always in the month of Adar, and therefore the whole month is considered a month of happiness and good luck. 

This year is a Jewish leap year, which means that an extra month is added to our calendar.   

Which month is added? Of course, the most joyous month!  So we end up with two Adars.

Adar begins this week – looking forward to sixty days of good Mazel and happiness!

Spaceship Beresheet

Israel is very proud to be the fourth nation to send a spaceship to the moon.  Following the superpowers of America, China and Russia, this is truly an amazing accomplishment.

The spacecraft was manufactured in Israel, but when it came time to launch it, they needed to send it from Cape Canaveral in Florida.  A spaceship is nice, but to send it to outer space, a good launching pad is a must.

Every Jew is G‑d’s spacecraft in this world. To make sure it accomplishes its mission, you need a good launching base – a solid Jewish education.

Feeling Safe in Israel

When you read the news about Israel, it sounds pretty scary.  Missiles, bombs, sirens, terrorist attacks… 

But when you are actually walking the streets of Israel, you feel totally safe. Business is booming and the country is flourishing. If you wouldn’t hear the news, you would never know that you are living in a place that is under attack.

As the Rebbe already said in 1991 to Michael Siegal, who was then the Chairman of Israel Bonds in America, “Israel is one of the surest places on the globe.”

California Shooting


I'm sure you have heard of the tragic attack on Chabad in Poway, California this week. 

Rabbi Goldstein, who lost an index finger in this attack, spoke to the press as he walked out of the hospital, with both hands in casts. 

In the spirit of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, who taught us to always turn pain into growth, he made a plea to the Jewish community to show solidarity to his community by gathering this Shabbos in Synagogues all over the world.  

Join us this week as we dedicate the Shabbat morning service to the Jews in Poway.
