THE PROGRAM DIRECTOR
Outreach is one of the most important goals of any
organization’s programs. Making a memorable impact is often a
challenge. You can now have a charismatic and dynamic
personality as the facilitator of your program. Rabbi Chaim
Dalfin is a rabbinic counselor, an author of 25 books and a
sought-after speaker, a renowned lecturer, a teacher of Jewish
mysticism, and a facilitator of gatherings in which song,
stories and words of inspiration are shared.
Rabbi Dalfin has developed a model of
Jewish wholesome living based on his popular book, Your
Better Self, A Guide to Self-Improvement, based on
Chasidic teachings. This is best experienced when one
participates in a program in which one gets the opportunity to
interact and learn from a master par excellence. Rabbi Dalfin
evokes deep-seated holy feelings through his “Niggun and
Chasidic Group Therapy.” By these means, one is able to
uncover truth and eliminate the facade which obscures the real
A Shabbaton weekend consists of food,
conversation, song, and thought. During the twenty-four hour
Getaway, one forgets the hustle and bustle of the daily world.
One allows G-dliness to become their personal guide. The
Shabbaton becomes a prototype for living a wholesome Jewish
life the rest of the year. It can be held at any location in
your local community. Your community becomes permeated with
enthusiasm and inspiration through involvement in the paradigm
of Jewish life.
Whether you’re single, married, young
or old, you’ll have an opportunity to experience your Judaism
and elevate your Jewish Spirituality.
A lecture attracts those who are
curious in seeking knowledge. Not bound by an entire weekend,
the one hour lecture followed by Q & A gives one the
opportunity to taste a higher plane of reality. Such topics
Kabbala: Is It Relevant?, Torah the
Blueprint of Creation, Demystifying the Mystical, How to be a
Mensch: Rambam’s View of Personality Development, Prayer: Is
G-d really listening?, and
others are offered.
SONGS and STORIES
Judaism has many facets to its rich
culture and way of life. Rabbi Dalfin uses the practical
application of Judaism by means of what he calls, “Chasidic
Group Therapy” as a means to achieve lasting change.
“CGT” consists of interactive singing,
Niggunim, Chasidic Chants, open dialogue, tribal memories of
individuals whose lives were permeated with the quintessence
of Jewishness, and making L’chayim in celebrating who we are,
where we came from, and what we have as Jews.
These get-togethers are most
successful during the auspicious time known as the “Melave
Malka”, or Saturday Night Live! If you want to truly motivate
and excite your people, offer our “Melave Malka” to your

our thanks for your excellent presentation on the topic of

"...How could Reb Dalfin, an
uncritical, devoted Chabadnik, be able to add anything novel
to the portrait of the Rebbe? Boy, were we wrong Rabbi Dalfin
brings the Rebbe’s memory as the mirror that reflects Judaism
back to itself. Dalfin’s book could have ended up on the
presses of a major publisher..."
