From the National Council of Jewish Women-West Morris chapter:
TAKE A PLANE-FREE TRIP TO THE SHTETL
No plane tickets or flying will be necessary when the National Council of Jewish Women-West Morris chapter hosts “A Trip to the Shtetl” on Monday, Oct. 23, 2017.
The outing, which promises to be a fun and in-depth exploration of the Brooklyn Hasidic community, will be led by Rabbi Shalom Lubin, spiritual leader of Congregation Shaya Ahavat Torah, Parsippany, and director of Chabad of Southeast Morris County, Madison.
The full-day bus trip will feature a stop at the Queen Ohel, the gravesite of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, and visits to several venues in the Brooklyn Hasidic Community.
These include the home of a Hasidic Rebbetzin, the Chabad Lubavitch International Headquarters, Kingston Avenue, the main Crown Heights shopping hub, the HaSofer, where the scribes of Jewish calligraphy for Torahs, mezuzahs and tefillin work, and a herring tasting at Benz’s Gourmet Appetizing.
The cost of the trip, incuding the bus, tour, water and light snacks on the bus, is $54 per person. Questions can be directed to and reservations made by e-mailing Ilene Dorf Manahan. Reservations will be confirmed with payment in advance on a first come, first served basis. Seating is limited.
