Are You Jewish?

Greetings From 770: This video, from The New York Times (!), is dedicated to Abq Jews who have never visited Chabad Lubavitch World Headquarters at 770 Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, and who have never seen a Chabad Lubavitch Mitzvah Tank on Central Ave.

Abq Jew has been privileged to attend Shabbos services at 770, walking all the way from Midwood (this was, ahem, a few years ago) to see and hear the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory.

Warning:  Sit tight! There's a 15-second commercial before Are You Jewish? starts.

And Abq Jew has been ... annoyed by those Mitzvah Tankists while trying to make his frantic way across Manhattan.  But we remember:  מצוה גוררת מצוה, mitzvah goreret mitzvah, one mitzvah brings another (Pirke Avot [Ethics of the Fathers], Chapter 4, Mishna 2)

And who knows - perhaps the Holy One, Blessed Be He, is waiting for just one more mitzvah before he sends Moshiach to redeem us all!
