SHABBAT SHALOM WEEKLY
After 27 years of delighting and uplifting the world with stories, humor and insights into
life, personal growth and Torah, Rabbi Kalman Packouz is now making available his renown
Shabbat Shalom Weekly email in Hebrew and Spanish!
It all started with 50 faxes in 1992. After moving to South Florida to head the local Aish
HaTorah branch, Rabbi Kalman Packouz was fascinated with the latest technology, a fax
modem. So he found a way to put it to good use, by sending out a one-page “dot-matrix” fax
about the weekly Torah portion to 50 people.
From 50 people, it has grown to over 100,000 subscribers world-wide for both the Fax and
Email editions.
To this day, tens of thousands still receive the Shabbat Shalom Fax – “The Fax of Life.”
Meanwhile, the online version has grown to become one of the world’s most popular Jewish
E-mails, with hundreds of thousands of readers worldwide receiving it in English and Portuguese.

Rabbi Packouz was born in Portland, where he attended Beth Israel, a reform Temple which
has given him a sensitivity to Jews from all backgrounds. He was the co-founder of Aish HaTorah’s
AVAILABLE IN HEBREW & SPANISH
first branch in St. Louis, Missouri. In 1980 Rabbi Packouz founded the Aish HaTorah Jewish
Computer Dating Service, perhaps the world’s first Jewish digital dating service, leading to an appearance on the Today Show.
He is also the creator of TheWall.org, Aish HaTorah’s webcam on the Western Wall – where you can see the Kotel live in
real-time – and even send a note to be placed in the Wall! To date it has received over 37 million visitors.
The Shabbat Shalom Weekly excites and brings Jews of all ages and backgrounds closer to their heritage and 3,000 years
of wisdom. Rabbi Packouz’s caring for his readers, along with his delightful sense of humor and great story telling have
earned him a devoted following for many near and far.
Writes Abby, “Your Shabbat Shalom Weekly has helped me shape my Jewish identity.” Rick shares, “The Shabbat Shalom
Weekly has connected me to my Jewish heritage, faith and belief. You cannot imagine how much I value your weekly letters.”
Comments Rabbi Packouz, “I am thrilled and humbled that I have been able to touch so many lives, and with the new
Hebrew and Spanish E-mails, I look forward to the opportunity of connecting even more Jews to the Almighty, their heritage
and Israel. I am both touched and saddened when readers write that the Shabbat Shalom Weekly is their only connection
to anything Jewish in their lives.”
