(lubavitch.com) Rabbi Chaim Mendelsohn was invited on behalf of the Canadian Federation of Chabad Lubavitch to an exclusive Garden Party with Queen Elizabeth as well as Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
The Garden Reception took place at Canada’s Rideau Hall, resident to the Governor General of Canada, where Rabbi Mendelsohn had the opportunity to inform the Queen about the scope and reach of the work of Chabad-Lubavitch in Canada and around the globe. The Queen, said Rabbi Mendelsohn, recalled that she had bestowed a prestigious award upon his colleague, Rabbi Arye Suffrin, who runs the Chabad Centre in London.
Rabbi Mendelsohn blessed the Queen with long life, health and happiness.
