Chazaq is known for organizing hundreds of inspirational shiurim that inspire tens of thousands throughout the calendar year; but with the lead-up to Rosh HaShanah, the increase in quantity is noticeable.
On September 11 and 12, Chazaq organized five special shiurim throughout the New York area.
Rabbi Lazer Brody was the headliner for two events. Coming in from Eretz Yisrael, people couldn’t wait for their opportunity to see and hear the well-known “Emunah Rabbi” in person. The first night, September 11, he gave a special shiur on the power of emunah at the Briarwood Jewish Congregation. On the second night, he spoke in Brooklyn for the BJX (Brooklyn Jewish Xperience) Center, helping the community prepare for Rosh HaShanah with a “shmuz” on forgiveness.
On September 11, Rabbi Duvi Bensoussan spoke at the Shaare Emunah Sephardic Congregation in Cedarhurst, continuing Chazaq’s four-part “Elevate Your Elul” Series, that had Rabbi Paysach Krohn speak the prior week. On Thursday, September 22, Rabbi Eli Mansour headlines part three, and the final part of the series will be on Sunday, October 2, with Rabbi Ephraim Shapiro.
Also speaking on September 11 was Rebbetzin Slovie Jungreis Wolff at the Beth Gavriel Center in Forest Hills, as she gave an inspiring lecture at a women’s only event. Rebbetzin Wolff encouraged the community to elevate their Rosh HaShanah davening and shared touching stories on the amazing power of prayer.
On September 12, another special lecture took place at Beth Gavriel with Rabbi Ilan Meirov as the speaker. This event was dedicated to the loving memory of Yosef ben Angela, who tragically passed away this month. You can tell from the large crowd how special of a young man Yosef was, and the positive impact Yosef had on those around him. May his neshamah have an aliyah.
