Finding Your Inner Power with Rabbi Yossi Bensoussan – Summer Tour 5779



Yes this a bit unconventional, but let’s go with it for a mere moment. Take a breather, lay back and close your eyes. Think of a remarkable accomplishment where you can truly give yourself a pat on the back. Now, reflect on just one small manner where you may want to improve. That’s it! Getting to this point means you are ready to step aboard CHAZAQ’s Finding Your Inner Power Summer Tour 5779 with Rabbi Yossi Bensoussan.


The Three Weeks begin this Sunday, July 21st on the Seventeen of Tammuz fast. The Bein HaMetzarim translated as between the straits refers to a the time where the Jewish nation is just that – lingering in peril. As a unity, we have the customs of maintaining a mourning period that commemorates the ultimate unfathomable destruction of both the first and second Bati Hamikdash; first by the Nevuchadnezzar II and later by the Romans.


To this end, the CHAZAQ organization listened to the persistent behest of Mrs. Daphne Zeruvabeli of Great Neck, NY and arranged a week of pure simplistic inspiration by a man of awesome stature, Rabbi Yossi Bensoussan.


The Five Towns Community will have the awesome privilege to host Rabbi Bensoussan’s FIRST lecture this Sunday evening at 7 pm at Congregation Shaare Emunah, 539 Oakland Avenue, Cedarhurst, NY 11516Shiva Asar B’Tamuz: Break the Fast, Break Your Limits.

Well over a decade ago, Rabbi Yossi Bensoussan began his tireless work for the klal educating teenagers from all backgrounds. Rabbi Yossi brings a warm friendly laugh alongside a respectable laid back demeanor giving down to earth meaning to his electrifying and empowering teachings.


Notably, Rabbi Bensoussan speaks and gives counsel on issues ranging the gamut of teenagers in general and specifically with regard to substance abuse also helping to co-found the Second Chance Initiative for providing parents and schools with solutions to address young adult dependencies.

The Queens community at large will have the honor to hear Rabbi Bensoussan’s penetrating words, entitled Hunger Games, this Sunday afternoon, July 21, at 4:30 pm at the Agudath Israel of Kew Gardens Hills located inside the Yeshiva of Central Queens, 147-37 70th Road, Flushing, NY 11367, as 9th of 15 LIVE lecturers giving classes during CHAZAQ’s Shiva Asar B’Tamuz Marathon.
