WHAT IS CHABAD Motivated by his profound love for every Jew and spurred by his boundless optimism and self-sacrifice, the Rebbe set into motion a dazzling array of programs, services and institutions to serve every Jew by establishing Chabad Houses worldwide. These centers were set up to serve as regional headquarters for all things Jewish, as well as educational and social centers. The purpose of a Chabad House is to serve the community by offering a wide range of multifaceted activities, and indeed be the creative engine room for Jewish activities in the area. Chabad Houses serve as a center that provides Jewish education on all levels. Depending on the location and community make up, the activities may vary. When necessary, Chabad is instrumental in establishing schools for students of all ages and provides structured after-school classes, Bar and Bat Mitzvah classes and extracurricular activities. Programs for all ages present a full array of informal education geared toward Jewish festival appreciation and Jewish identity awareness. Chabad Houses are world renowned for their sophisticated adult education programs, providing individual and group classes in all areas of Jewish thought.

Dear Friends, Chabad of Boca Raton is pleased to present its 2019-2020 Program Guide which offers the community a wide range of classes, lectures, Shabbat Scholars-in-Residence, Cantors, feature films and family programs. Jewish education forms the backbone of every Jewish community. A community which is involved with its heritage is one which is growing and never stagnant. We ensure our vitality and endurance through the study of our tradition. The unbroken chain of Judaism which spans the ages has been forged by the words of Torah. It is incumbent upon each and every one of us to attach our own personal link to the chain, so that ourselves, our children, and our grandchildren will inherit the richness and beauty of Judaism. This year resolve to increase your Jewish studies and involvement in your community. Our classes, programs, lectures and Friday night meals promise to intrigue, stimulate and enhance your spiritual growth. They will inspire feelings of meaning, hope, purpose and value. Regardless of your current level of knowledge or your particular interests, we have a class, lecture or program for you and your family. We welcome you to join us. With best wishes, Rabbi Moishe & Rivkah Denburg Rabbi Arele & Chaya Gopin Rabbi Yossi & Shainy Denburg 561-994-6257 | ChabadBoca.com

With Ben Ferencz
After graduating from Harvard Law School in 1943, Ben Ferencz joined an anti-aircraft artillery battalion for the invasion of France. Under General Patton, he fought in every campaign in Europe. As Nazi atrocities were uncovered, he was transferred to a newly created War Crimes Branch of the Army to gather evidence of Nazi brutality and apprehend the criminals. Ferencz became Chief Prosecutor for the United States at the Nurenburg trials in what the Associated Press called "the biggest murder trial in history." Twenty-two defendants were charged and convicted with murdering over a million people, establishing a legal precedent that would encourage a more humane and secure world for the future. He was only twenty-seven years old and Nuremberg was his ﬁrst case. At 99, Ben is the last surviving prosecutor of the Nuremberg trials.

CIRCLE OF FRIENDS SAFETALK TRAINING
Help save a life
Circle of Friends extends a helping hand to families who have children and teens with special needs and involves them in a full spectrum of Jewish and social experiences.
safeTALK is a three-hour alertness training for ages 15 and older, which prepares the participants to become a suicide alert helper. Individuals with suicidal thoughts don’t usually want to die, and most actually give hints to people in their lives that they are formulating these thoughts. However, many individuals miss these invitations for help.
Circle of Friends introduces teenage volunteers to the children and through shared experiences, both are enriched.
