Seudat Shira In Honor of Devorah HaNevia, a'h

A BIG thank you and yasher koach to all the wonderful people who donated for the Seduat Mitzvah le iluy nishmat and in honor of Devorah HaNevia, a'h.

One cannot comprehend the nachat Tzadaka gives HKB'H. Our chachamim teach us that Tzedakah is “equal to all the mitzvos” and “brings closer the redemption.”

The Seudat Mitzvah was, b'h, a tremendeous success. The Chabad Shul has a congregation of about 25 people and we prepared for about 40 people, but chasdei Shamyim, over 60 people showed up and stayed for the Seudat Mitzvah, and there was plenty of food for everybody. Even the Rav of the shul was very surprised that so many showed up, people he never met or saw before.

The atmosphere in the shul was very spiritual and my husband merited to say the Haftara, Shirat Devorah HaNevia, a'h. The atmosphere during the Seuda was amazing with thick air of achdut (unity), despite the fact that it was a mixture of people of different backgrounds. The men sang songs in unison and a few also said Divrei Torah. My husband also spoke about the greatness of Devorah HaNevia. After my husband's speech, many of the guests came over to my husband and said that they were very moved by his speech and he has peaked their interest to learn more about Devorah HaNevia. Many guests told my husband that they were not aware how much she sacrificed for Am Israel and that her Heichal is extremely important to HKB'H. A few promised that they will too make seuda in their shul in honor of Devorah HaNevia, a'h.

Some of the donation money also went to the Tehillim program for the children in the shul. About 50 children came and all said Tehillim le iluy nishmat Devorah HaNevia, and the Rav commented to my husband that he never saw the children saying Tehillim with so much spiritual fire.

ישתבח שמו לעד לנצח נצחים בכל העולמות
Blessed is His name for eternity in all worlds
אין עוד מלבדו




והיה השם למלך על כל הארץ, ביום ההוא יהיה השם אחד - ושמו אחד ישתבח שמו לעד לנצח נצחים בכל העולמות Blessed is His name for eternity in all worlds אין עוד מלבדו
