Rosh Hashana was really beautiful. Fri night, the first eve of chag was joined by almost 100 pple, with a festive feeling as participants shared their New years wishes and thoughts. Great singing and celebrating Chabad style. the rest of the Chag meals were also enjoyed by the many various Jews coming together to find meaning and inspiration in our wonderful holidays. Sunday lunch ended with a grand excursion to Øster anlæg, close to Chabd House for the traditional tashlich prayers. Even the fish seemed moved as the crowd sang oseh shalom together, and wished each other shana tova.

Familie program- kids zone

Sunday morning children together with their parents were treated to another fantastic chagim funhouse. With all activities being completely hands- on, the younger participants made blowable paper shofars, while the older ones sawed and drilled and sanded their own proper kosher horn. There were shana tova cards, honey dishes and honey placemats, Yom kippur slippers, and huge book, miniature sukkot and challot among other things. Following the activities was lunch with the chance for everyone to chat and get to know each other. Looking forward to the next one- before chanukah!

We have just begun the first day of Gan Israel daglejr! The first day has been a great success with the children having a blast, participating in a wide variety of games and sports and swimming and creative projects, trips, etc. It is not really possible to describe the Gan Israel spirit, you need to come yourself to see it and experience it. We look forward to the upcoming week and then on to the Gan Israel overnight camp which we will be heading out to next week iyh.

Shabbat 1. juli,

This past Shabbat we have had the pleasure of hosting Matisyahu, the Chabad reggae singer whom moved in with us over the weekend following his concert by Roskilde festival. A very hyggligt shabbat was enjoyed by all- including many star- struck fans.


Well, haven't been on in a long while, lots has been happening, here're the latest big events.


Purim was super! We had a few megillah readings both in the evening and during the daytime so all could have the opportunity to fulfill this special mitzvah. The grand Purim party was held in Parken stadium with 200 people in attendance. As another of the special Mitzvot for Purim is to have a holiday meal on Purim day, we did just that. We feasted on a 3 course delicious banquet. The tables were set beautifully with golden stones and mirror centerpieces. There was a great atmosphere and all enjoyed themselves immensly. The party moved on over to Chabad house for the later part of the evening going on thru the night.


We had a very successful trial run of a new monthly program- namely lectures with various famous guest speakers via conference networking. This past month we had professor Allan Dershowitz, a world famous lawyer, and professor in Harvard.

Chagit Rosensveig and marie Lise Tansvig treated us to a memorable dance, and a choir of girls sang heartwarmingly. The costumes were incredibly detailed and rich.

Torah (small)


The first two evenings of Sukkot we were out of space due to the sukkah's limited capacity of max 70 people seated relatively comfortably at one time. The rest of the sukkot festive meals were also enjoyed by many, and besides for Fri eve, we were really happy with the clear weather (and our 3! heaters).

On chol hamoed Sukkot, børnehave Noah's ark came to visit the sukkah. On Thursday, Yitzi made the annual 'Sukkah på hjul' trip to jylland where the Jews of Jylland could also participate in the joy of the holiday and get to eat in an absolutely kosher pop up sukkah.
