Living Jewish for Vayakel is Online and In Need

Living Jewish for Parshat Vayakel is now online and available here.


I apologize for the delay.  We have had some challenges with funding.

I do not know if you are aware but Living Jewish has now been servicing the English speaking readership in Israel and abroad for over 10 years. Each week about 3,000 copies are delivered to Chabad houses, shuls, and homes throughout Eretz Yisroel, in addition to being emailed to other parts of the world. We have received tremendously positive feedback from our readers and it has been a truly great honor to service the English speaking readership. We hope to continue doing so for many years to come!

As our readers have written:

“I want to thank you for your wonderful work. With Hashem’s help you should continue. Chazak, Chazak!” (a reader from Beitar)

“Living Jewish is an excellent tool to unite English speaking readers throughout the country. It brings Torah, guidance, halacha and interesting stories into our homes for Shabbat. (a reader from Efrat)

“I await receiving The Living Jewish every week! Shabbos is just not the same without it! It is a very full Chassidic Jewish publication! Its stories of Tzadikim and many many important Jewish personalities with their wonderful lessons to be learned, well explained discourses of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, highlights from the weekly parsha, Mashiach and Geula  features, special interest stories, columns dealing with various  current interpersonal issues via Dr. Yosef, timely halacha, and even a creative recipe make the LJ fun, inspiring, didactic and truly something to anticipate! (a reader from Beitar)

I did not receive Living Jewish by Erev Shabbat. Did you print last week?

I was a bit afraid to go to shul. Would I get stoned? Sure enough.

"What is this? What will I read on Shabbat afternoon?" demanded a non-chasid from Belgium.

"Oh, no. My wife reads me the story at the table every Friday night" whined an Israeli who speaks but doesn't read English.

"Uh.oh. Now I will get it on my head from my mother-in-law. She depends on me to bring these to her," worried another Israeli.

Etc. etc. And kal v'chomer from the native English speakers--especially those who are not fluent enough in Hebrew that struggling with Hebrew publications can be considered a pleasure for Shabbos. (from a reader in Tsfat)

However, as you can imagine, there are many expenses involved in the production and delivery of Living Jewish and we need your financial support to continue. In that we are a weekly publication your donation will, with the help of Hashem, enable our production and distribution to continue uninterrupted.

To dedicate an edition of Living Jewish or simply make a donation please email me or contact us at

We very much appreciate your support!
