Isaiah is teaching an important and timeless lesson of those who are capable of achieving simcha (happiness). One might think that only the haughty or those who have been dealt the better cards are able to reach a level of pure joy. But the prophet is telling us that this is not the case. To achieve full life satisfaction should not be dependent upon particular circumstances or situations; rather who you are and the gifts God has bestowed upon you should be enough to bring you to a level of deep appreciation and contentment. After 228 years dedicating themselves to helping Israel’s poor and sick, Colel Chabad can safely say they know true happiness as the smile on a person’s face when they are the recipients of a truly unexpected act of kindness. Be a part of one of the most efficient charities in the world!
Jewish families all over the country are constant recipients of Colel Chabad’s charitable activities, whether food or other means of assistance. Hear from Israel’s mayors what the organization has done for their city.
Rabbi Weisz, I love going to my computer every morning and finding a new Israel365 in my mailbox. It adds special meaning to my day! I made aliyah from the states and am now living in Jerusalem. Shalom, Jaclyn
