After Victor Frankel survived the Nazi concentration camp, it was in his bestselling book Man's Search for Meaning that he concluded: “The difference between those who had lived and those who had died came down to one thing: Meaning.” As he saw in the camps, those who found meaning even in the most horrendous circumstances were far more resilient to suffering than those who did not.

Before the coronavirus, life for most was like a treadmill - as we went through the motions day after day without ever asking why or seeking what really matters to us. With the arrival of the pandemic and the following civil unrest, the world and our lives completely turned over. It is now more essential than ever before that we find meaning in our lives.

With the high holidays approaching, and so much yet unknown. Chabad of Islip thought it would be fruitful this year to approach the high holiday differently - by creating a 31-day program of preparation - leading towards a more meaningful High Holidays - toward a more meaningful life.

The book you will receive Toward A Meaningful Life, is a spiritual road map for living based on the teachings of one of the foremost religious leaders of our time: The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson.

The bookmark included, lays out the topic to be read each day, just 10-15 pages. With this hands-on learning opportunity, you're sure to experience a paradigm shift within your personal development. A journey into a whole new realm of meaning and happiness. 

By following this 31-day program - you'll have the opportunity to write your personal mission statement, and explore practical and insightful Jewish perspectives on the values of life, family, home, love, work, money, stress, and faith.

Please join us on this 31-day journey culminating with a more meaningful start to the Jewish new year.
