Rally Rabbi Strikes Again! B-ballin’ edition.

Posted by Oyster on March 16, 2007

This time, at the Jewish Heritage Night at the Golden State Warriors game. Read all about it here on the J (btw, Rachel’eh! Goot Shabbos!). The Ralli Rabbi, R. Yosef Langer of SF Chabad, himself has a post up on his blog.

Rabbi Langer is definitely a Jewish innovater, having had a hand in starting the Chabad House movement, starting the Chabad public menorah lighting movement, and the Purimpalooza fest that’s been 10+ years on. Could this be the latest innovation for Chabad kiruv? Bringing Yiddishekeit to the unaffiliated Jews at the entertainment venues that they go to anyways?

    Rabbi Langer posted this to JensList:

    Message from Rabbi Langer’s desk-
    This morning, Gary Radnich on sports talk 680 discussed how “My favorite part about Jewish Heritage night is the Rally Rabbi”. He went on to say that the Warriors incredible defeat of the Mavericks is because the “Rally Rabbi may be undefeated” and announced that Jewish heritage night is coming to the Giants this summer!
    Jewish Heritage Night at the Oakland Warriors on Monday March 12th was an incredible success!

    Rally Rabbi Mission Statement:
    From the players on the bench out on to the court and into the paint
    up into the stands with the fans
    and out into the street and into our homes and beyond
    Rally with the Rally Rabbi to increase in acts of goodness and kindness for victory and peace!

    Wishing you and your family a Kosher and Happy Pesach!
