Today is the 10th of Shvat

He has affected world Jewry. If you've ever tasted Devorah Leah's amazing cooking at the Chabad House or said l'chaim with Shlomie Friday night, he has affected you. If you have ever visited a Chabad House in another city, (for instance, the Congo, Chiang Mai, Paris, or Santa Rosa) he has affected you. If you ever saw a public menorah lighting (especially one with a straight-branch menorah), he's affected you. If you ever saw some crazy-looking, black-suited, long-bearded, black-hat wearing Jews in places that you might not expect (like the Blue Lagoon on Pacific), he has affected you. He has completely changed my life. I believe it was once said, "...sometimes there's a man... I won't say a hero, 'cause, what's a hero? Sometimes, there's a man. And I'm talkin' about the Dude here... Sometimes, there's a man, well, he's the man for his time and place." Who was this man?

Shlomie will be farbrenging tonight at the Chabad House, starting around 7 or 8pm.
