Local Rabbi To Probe Chassidism In Whippany Library Series

Rabbi Shalom Lubin, spiritual leader of Congregation Shaya Ahavat Torah in Parsippany, and director of Chabad of Southeast Morris County in Madison, will offer a fascinating look at “Chassidism: History, Philosophy, and Contemporary Life” June 13 and June 20.
The free series is sponsored by the National Council of Jewish Women’s West Morris Section and coordinated by the organization’s Our Jewish World program. It began on June 6. The series will be held at noon in the Morris County Library, Whippany.
“This course will explore the origins of the Chassidic movement and its core principles and mystical teachings,’’ said Lubin. “It will also share a glimpse into the lives of the great Chassidic personalities, and discuss the impact of the movement in modern times.”
The workshop leader is the founder of the New Jersey Jewish Law Symposium, an annual event highlighting the synthesis and integration of the Talmud, the Jewish Legal System, and U.S. civil law.
Born and raised in Chicago, Lubin began his relationship with the Jewish community in N.J. in 1996, while he was studying at the Rabbinical College of America in Morristown. Before settling in N.J., his rabbinic training took him around the world, including to Sydney, Australia; Bellevue, Washington; and Minsk, Belarus.
