In honor of Rabbi Yitzi Hurwitz’s 48th birthday this Shabbos, a campaign was launched to lay Tefillin with 26,000 Jews around the world. After you put on the Tefillin, send a picture with the hashtag #TefillinForYitzi • Full Article
Our dear brother, Rabbi Yitzi Hurwitz, the Chabad Rabbi in Temecula California, was diagnosed with ALS seven years ago.
He is celebrating his 48th birthday on Thursday, 2 Adar (February 27). Rabbi Yitzi has always demonstrated a huge passion for the Rebbe’s Tefillin Campaign, to help others fulfill the Mitzvah of Tefillin.
Unfortunately, he is physically no longer able to help others with this Mitzvah due to his condition.
Let us join together with the greatest vigor yet to give Yitzi the greatest birthday gift and fulfill his birthday wish: Our goal this year is to help 26,000 put on Tefillin! Let us reach EVERY Jew in the world with this Mitzvah, and LET’S MAKE MIRACLES!
