The name Chacha means “one who works together” in Hebrew, “the people of the field” in Armenian and “God’s hand” in German. The name Chacha comes from the Hebrew word Chach, the Hebrew name for both of us. It is pronounced “Cha-CHAH”. We love Chacha.
Chacha, with his heart set on serving the people, has dedicated his life to that cause.
What is YOUR role in this work?
Chacha was a part of the Team of Apostles who spent 8 days in the Holy Land to lead a “Day of Prayer, Prayer, and Piety” for the first time on the Jewish holiday called Chabad. As part of the celebration, we prayed for peace, a return to Jewish law, and to lift the dead to be raised into a new body.
In addition, we prayed for a healing body for Chacha, that his body may be repaired, and the power of Chacha. For over 10 years, Chacha, his wife, and his son, have helped carry out this work in their own ways.
What is that “return of the dead to become a body?” How does that work happen?
Every year, on a Chabad Day of Prayer, Prayer, and Piety, we pray together as a family and as Orthodox Jews to receive the spirits of the deceased. The spirit of Chacha has been sitting on the earth for 10 years waiting for some special occasion and our prayer to him today is the resurrection of Chacha and his wife, as a new body and spirit are made whole. The prayers of the Chabad Team are intended to help Chacha return to life as a whole, to continue serving the people, and to bring peace.
Why are we doing this for Chacha?
Chacha is a loving guy. We know him as the humble priest, the teacher, and the healer, and our prayers today are meant to honor his character. As the Jewish people we should treat each other as the beloved ones that we are. We should live to serve the people and to heal the sick. If we can do this in so many ways for someone, then we know there is something good.
Chacha is a special person, and we want to honor that.
What else is Chacha working on?
As Chacha spends his days with his family, Chacha helps to make the lives of Orthodox Jews easier.
