Rabbi Yossi and Chani,
A very brief email to thank you both and your family for making me feel so very welcome at Chabad.  I enjoy every minute I attend Chabad services and celebrations.
Today,  Siyum Sefer Torah was especially special for me. It's an occasion I've never experienced before.  I felt quite emotional sitting down with the scribe and having a letter completed in my name, and afterwards being part of the procession. It is something I will remember forever.
I may not be the most religious Jew, but I am a proud Jew, and today's events and my continued pride will be enshrined in my soul forever.
Again, thank you both...


Hi Rabbi Simon,
Thank you so much for the wonderful Shabbos at your Beit Chabad 2 weeks ago! We enjoyed the davening, delicious meals, the warm community, & of course, your daughter's fantastic Dvar Torah!! You all made us feel so welcome, which for sure was not so easy, the Shabbos that the Rebbitzin was at the Kinus...
Thank you! 

Dear Rabbi Simon and Rabbi Weinbaum,
We wanted to really thank you both for blowing the Shofar for our daughter on Rosh Hashanah and for taking the Lulav and Esrog to her on Sukkos. We are so grateful. Hatzlacha Rabba in all your endeavors.


Hi Chanie and Rabbi Simon,
Shavua Tov! I just wanted to say thank you for hosting on Friday. I always enjoy coming to Chabad and it makes a big difference having a place like Chabad to go to when you live away from family and you are missing chicken soup and shabbat songs. I really appreciate the effort you put in to making me and everyone else feel welcome.
Thanks again & Best Wishes :)

Hi Rabbi Simon,
I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you so much for leading the Tzizit workshop in 3 of our classes at Rimon today. The children were fascinated to watch how Tzizit are made and really learnt a lot, supporting their understanding of the Mitzvah. They are really eager to finish the Tzizit string making at home and show their families the finished product.  The feedback from the children in the class that I was not present in was really positive too. 

Kind regards,
Deputy Head of Kodesh
Rimon Jewish Primary School

Thanks for the organization of wonderful afternoon at Zippos Circus- the ladies at Beis Rochel Supported Housing Scheme really enjoyed themselves on Chol Hamoed at the circus.

Thank you for your superb calendar and as in all the previous years, please send another one. One is never enough!
Best wishes for 5780,

Hi Rebz Simons,
I hope all is well. Just to let you know that we really enjoyed the Purim Seudah!  It was really well arranged, the décor was beautiful and the atmosphere was great. So just to say a huge thanks for that!
Kind regards, E. C.

[…] We wanted to thank you again for the lovely Shabbos full of warmth, spirituality and Ahavas Israel, that we spent with you. We pray that Hashem will always give you the Zechut to continue the super work you are doing, in health, wealth and happiness.

Thank you for the BEST CAMP EVER
Y had 2 fabulous weeks - thank you for thinking about our boys and looking after them in such a warm and caring way.

Thank you for all the wonderful work you do at Magnolia Ct. Seeing my father in law, really enjoying himself when you put tefillin on him, was a great privilege for my wife and myself.
Wishing you every success with your future endeavors

Many thanks for your wonderful work! Chanuka Sameach!


We are so grateful to Chabad and Zippos Circus and the Zippos Circus staff who put on such fabulous kosher entertainment every sukkos.
Mrs C.F. , London


Seeing what you do for Chanuka is amazing. It's a proper publicising of the miracle. Exactly as Chanuka is meant to be. We are so lucky to live in a country which encourages us to promote and be proud of our Judaism. And the way you take that forward is really wonderful.

Happy Purim to the Simon Family! Many thanks for inviting us to share Purim with you!

Shalom Rabbi Yossi. Thank you very much for the Purim sweets. You really made the difference this year for my kids!. The girls are always very happy to give tzedaka through the app. Hope you and your family had a good Purim. I am always happy to see all your hard work to keep traditions and the sense of community alive. Hag sameach!

Thank you Chanie and Yossi for a wonderful Friday Night dinner.Thank you for letting us share in the birthday celebrations! Chanie, thank you for all your hard work and for inviting me to join you. Shabbos with your family is very special. It is always an honour to spend shabbos with you and your family! 

Thank you for your excellent work.
These strike as times of little clarity and a lot of discomfort. Yet during these times turning to your website and other useful links on it, things start to lighten up. Has been a real sanctuary of peace and education for me for the past months.  (During Covid-19)
