Panthers, Steelers and Fans Receive Rabbinical Encouragement

Rabbi Yossi Groner, director of Chabad-Lubavitch of the Carolinas, delivered an invocation at a recent Carolina Panthers football game on Tuesday, September 13, 2011.

According to Groner, who led the crowd in a prayer asking G-d to shield and protect the players from both teams from injury, attendance was impressive for the Panthers' last pre-season game at Bank of America Stadium. It was their only scheduled home outing against the Pittsburgh Steelers this season.

Groner, who founded the Charlotte, N.C., Chabad House with his wife Mariashi Groner 30 years ago, included fans in his prayer.

"Teach us to be quick as a panther and firm as steel when we fulfill your desire in making this world a better place," said the rabbi. "Let us be inspired today from our athletes in executing our mission in life, with tenacity, teamwork and camaraderie."
