Huntington, NY - July 13, 2016 - In light of recent events in Dallas and around the country, Rabbi Yakov Saacks, Director of The Chai Center in Dix Hills, wants to encourage peace in the community. Rabbi Saacks brought cookies to the second precinct police station in Huntington, NY on Sunday, July 10, to show his appreciation for their hard work and sympathy for their fallen brothers. “They are there to protect,” said Rabbi Saacks. “They are the only stop measure between peace and anarchy. God bless the souls of those that were gunned down in Dallas.”

On Tuesday, July 12, teens from the Chai Center’s CTeen group also delivered a sweet treat, along with some homemade gifts, to the second precinct to show their gratitude to those in blue who keep them safe. “It is so important that we continually encourage our youth to give back to our community, particularly during these challenging times,” said Rabbi Dovid Weinbaum, Director of Youth Programming at the Chai Center. CTeen is the fastest growing Jewish teen network in the world, with over 200 chapters worldwide.
