It’s that time of year again. Finals Week is over, most already left for home, and we’re doing a small Cozy-Shabbat dinner and lunch this weekend for those still up here.
The snowfall on Saturday Night through Sunday was quite significant, over a foot of snow, that’s for sure. Most of our kids, Bluma and Bassie especially, had a marvelous time frolicking in the snow.
Here’s the reason why we had bricks on the tables on our last Shabbat together, remember it, to keep in mind to do a special Mitzvah over winter break. Chanukah wasn’t that long ago, see our RECAP CHANUKAH 2013 page for links to our Chanukah celebrations, both as a family and together with the students when they returned after Thanksgiving Break. We also had a great Midnight Breakfast, see the link for links to all films we saw that night. Great night at Dutch Kosher the next night, hope to post that soon.
We’re trying a new Book BuyBack fundraiser this semester, stop by with your books or FB/email us your ISBN’s (no dashes, 13 digits) and if we can get you a good price, why not benefit Shabbos House at the same time?
We’re almost at the end of 2013. Please consider Shabbos House for your year-end donations, as it will help us close the semester in the black. Shabbos House is supported primarily by alumni, parents, friends and community, and receives very limited funds (under 10%) from University via Lchaim Student Group or from National Chabad. You can contribute online via PayPal or by check to Shabbos House – Chabad Center. See SUPPORT/ DONATE page for details. Thank you for your friendship and continued support.
