Washington State shluchim committed to place 1,000 new mezuzahs on homes by next Yud Alef Nissan.
Washington State shluchim recently met with head shliach to the Pacific Northwest Rabbi Sholom Ber Levitin. During the meeting the topic of Yud Alef Nissan and how to present the Rebbe with an appropriate gift was raised.
Rabbi Levitin mentioned the Rambam in Hilchos Tshuvah where one mitzvah can tip the scales and bring redemption to the world. In that vein, the decision was reached that the shluchim in that region – both those that could attend the meeting and those that could not – would within the next year place 1,000 mezuzos on homes all over the State of Washington. The mezuzos will iyh be sponsored by an anonymous donor, on the condition that these are homes that are yet without a mezuzah up to this point.
The project is headed by shliach Rabbi Chaim Shaul Rivkin.
Shluchim that attended the meeting included: Rabbi Yosef Schtrocks: Olympia, Wa., Rabbi Mendel Weingarten; Chabad University of Seattle, Rabbi Shmuly Levitin; CYP Seattle, Rabbi Yecheskel Kornfeld; Seattle, Rabbi Levi Levitin Chabad of Capitol Hill and Central District, Rabbi Shneur Levitin; Chabad of Queen Ann, Rabbi Sholom Ber Levitin; head shliach, Rabbi Sruly Treitel; Renton, WA, Rabbi Nissan Kornfeld; Mercer Island Wa., Rabbi Yoni Levitin; Chabad of NW Seattle, Rabbi Chaim Shaul Rivkin; Kirkland, Wa.
