For the first time in Jewish history, all shuls are closed and people find themselves doing their Jewish services, Torah readings, even Yizkor at home. A group of shluchim came together to create a last-minute Shavous magazine that offers the Chabad perspective on the Yom Tov.

The world of Chabad House programming has been heavily impacted by the Caronavirus pandemic shutdown and Shluchim have quickly adapted with online classes and creative programming that serve their members.
A group of shluchim from the US and Australia have come together and created a Shavous magazine that offers the Chabad perspective on the festival.
Perhaps, Yom Kippur and Pesach have become more popular amongst the general public, yet Shavous is the holiday behind them both! Shavous has always been about the “inheritance” and connection that every Jew has with the Torah and Judaism.
The magazine uses the artwork of Yehuda Lang of Toronto and graphic design of Carasmatic design in New York to a one of a kind fresh perspective on Shavous.
Chabad Houses may be closed but their communities are feeling more connected than ever before with a personal (customization) letter from their own rabbi on page 2, making the magazine look and feel like a local publication.
The project is run through Chabad of Cypress in California and allows each location to publish a local version for their Jewish community.
