Rabbi Mordechai Kanelsky, the executive director of Bris Avrohom, celebrated his 60th birthday with family, friends, community members, and supporters of the Russian Jewish community. He followed the advice of the Lubavitcher rebbe, who said that a birthday should be celebrated with joy and friends, and by making new resolutions growing in Torah and mitzvot. Many of the attendees told their stories and the personal impact that Bris Avrohom and the Kanelskys have had on them.

Rabbi Kanelsky gave words of Torah and asked those present to join Bris Avrohom’s newly launched mezuzah campaign, which will give 7,700 mezuzahs to 1,800 Jewish families.
