The days of Chanuka, are upon us. The holiday of Chanukah is a wonderful time for family and friends to celebrate together. The holy sforim state that the candles that we light on Chanuka are not only the fulfillment of a mitzvah, The lighting of the candles serve as a prayer to Hashem, that He fill our lives with light and holiness, It is also a special time to give Tzedakah to help others. As our Rabbis says, giving Tzedakah on Chanukah increases the light in the world; as the light brightens, it displaces darkness.
At this time, we would like to offer you the opportunity to enable the furthering of Limud HaTorah and Tefilla of our Bais Medrash, by providing the "Ner Lamaor", namely, helping finance the electricity and gas services. As you are well aware, the Nikolsburg Rebbe shlita, has touched the lives of hundreds and thousands of people from all walks of life, by providing spiritual advice, solace and encouragement, and wise counsel on many matters. The Rebbe's primary goal is to be able to continue influencing and guiding the many students and ardent followers and bringing "light" into people's lives by passing down the age old Jewish tradition for generations to come, we ask you to please join us in lighting the torch which "enlightens" the whole world.
With your warm-hearted assistance, you will enable the future Limud HaTorah and Tefilla of an entire Kehilla.
