While left and right feverishly debate the presidential candidates, an 'election' affecting the very existence of our universe is only hours away!
Our Sages teach that before we sound the Shofar on Rosh Hashanah the world actually stands in precarious balance -- until G-d decides to accept us again as His subjects.
So on Rosh Hashanah (beginning this evening, Sunday, September 16) we gather in our synagogues to elect G-d as King of the Universe, beseeching Him also to shower His blessings upon us for a good and sweet New Year.
To properly prepare, we reflect solemnly upon our past and resolve to do better; we joyously increase our performance of mitzvos; and we conscientiously help others do the same.
At Chabad.org, more than 1.7 million unique users currently access our website monthly for priceless knowledge, essential life tools and communal connection. But our work has barely begun!
For the New Year, we are redoubling our efforts to ensure that more people than ever can enjoy Judaism's priceless treasures.
We have exciting plans to expand the scope and reach of our programs and to offer a whole new range of learning opportunities for young and old, scholar and layperson, beginner and advanced user alike.
Chabad.org is on the cusp of disseminating Torah and Judaism on a scale never seen before in 3,300 years of Jewish history!
We cannot, however, achieve any of this on our own! Your involvement is integral to ensure that this global educational outreach becomes a reality. Please join us in demonstrating to the Almighty just how deeply His people care about the material and spiritual wellbeing of their brethren!
Please reach down deep and extend whatever support you can – and then some – for this sacred partnership, thereby helping effect the most glorious election of all time!
The payoff is immeasurable: Helping countless Jews across the globe deepen their relationship with their Judaism; and bringing a whole new level of peace, stability, sanctity and purpose to the human condition as a whole. Surely the merit of such a mitzvah is incalculable!
It is our goal to enlist the participation of 5,400 partners during this High Holiday season, and I'd like to ask you to please become one of them.
