Dear friend,

Politicians As election day approaches, we are showered with promises from the various politicians. They will lower taxes, solve the health care crisis, cure the economy and help bring new jobs to your area. Then comes the day after! The politicians are nowhere to be found, promises are forgotten and we, the constituents, are once again disappointed. Just a moment – think about this: are we not the same? Take a look at the last year's High Holidays. On Yom Kippur, we stand before G-d and make all kinds of promises. “Give us a good year, make sure our family is healthy and our business goes well, and in return we will….“ At this upcoming High Holidays, let’s not play politics with G-d. Let’s make sure that not only does G-d hear our promises, but that we hear them too!

As a resident or guest of Pudong, you have personally experienced the important and vital work of Chabad Jewish Center of Pudong in our community. We have enhanced our educational programs as well as our services for your convenience. We are enabling community members to celebrate the holidays, enrich their children’s Jewish education, and provide a great opportunity to experience Judaism in a welcoming and positive atmosphere, where every Jew - no matter what background - will feel at home. You may not be aware, but the Pudong Jewish Center is not supported by Chabad international or any other organizations. It is totally dependent on local donations. We are working very hard to cover the yearly budget for the center and all of its growing programs and activities.

We hope you will help us by participating in the Partnership (membership) Campaign with your generous pledge.
