The Frierdiker Rebbe’s request: Please send “truly religious rabbis of first class personality” to assist the Jewish refugees in Europe * The basic requirements of Jewish educational institutions: to have Kosher kitchens and to provide the children with religious teachers and instructors * “I find it hard to believe that the AJDC would be guilty, either knowingly or inadvertently, of supplying Terefah foods to the Jewish DPs” * The Jewish Refugee Crisis – Second Installment
Q. The Talmud (Bava Basra 75a) states that Hashem will make a sukka for the righteous from the skin of the Leviasan and a banquet from its flesh. Elsewhere, (see Brachos 34b) the Talmud talks about a superior wine that will be served at this feast. Is this banquet a poetic metaphor? Is it wholly symbolic of something esoteric? Will it really happen?
Rabbi Dovid Chaviv came to Sarcelles, France six years ago, and today “with songs of joy,” he is reaping the many successes of his activities with the city’s Jewish community. Working with great dedication, he has reached countless Jewish souls, touching them, and leading them to the path of Torah, mitzvos, and Chassidus. This is the story of a young avreich and the spiritual revolution taking place near the City of Lights.
About the gap between the level of learning in elementary school and mesivta, about where the Schottenstein Artscroll and Steinsaltz commentaries fit into the yeshiva world, about instilling love for learning in talmidim and about the Chassidic outlook on learning a sugya in Gemara. * As the new school year begins, Beis Moshiach spoke with Rabbi Aryeh Leib Cohen, a teacher in Yeshivas Tomchei T’mimim in Netanya and his brother-in-law, Rabbi Aryeh Kedem, a teacher in Yeshivas Tomchei T’mimim in Lud, who speak about teaching in an era when concentrating for long periods of time and delving into a daf Gemara is a real challenge. They also respond to the question: what role do parents have in preparing their children for yeshiva
On Wednesday, the first day of Chol HaMoed Sukkos (the second day of Chol HaMoed in Eretz Yisroel), the sixth annual gathering of Tzeirei Agudas Chabad in the United States took place in Brooklyn (in a large hall not far from 770 Eastern Parkway). The Rebbe said about this gathering that the beginning took place already at the farbrengen on Motzaei Yom Tov, and that the kinus was in the middle of the farbrengen. So, if it started at the beginning of the Motzaei Yom Tov farbrengen, obviously, our leader, the Rebbe himself, participated in it.
R’ Zushe Pruss related: In 5727, I traveled to be with the Rebbe for the month of Tishrei. This visit occurred a few years after my father, my older brother Berel, and I left Russia. We made aliya and lived in Kfar Chabad
Rabbi She’ar Yashuv Cohen, Chief Rabbi of Haifa, who recently passed away, merited special signs of closeness from the Rebbe thanks to his grandfather, who hid the Rebbe in his home in the period following the arrest of the Rebbe Rayatz. * R’ Cohen had many private meetings with the Rebbe and corresponded with him, and whenever he went to the United States he tried to go to 770, have yechidus, or attend the Rebbe’s farbrengen. * Also – what made him switch from the world of askanus to the world of rabbanus? And why did he continue in his rabbinic position without pay?
”The song of faith, “Yechi Adoneinu Moreinu V’Rabbeinu, Melech HaMoshiach L’olam Va’ed,” has long since become “the” song that expresses the anticipation of the hisgalus of the Rebbe as Moshiach. However, many do not know that this song took off during hakafos, the night of Simchas Torah 5753
Sukkos is a time for rejoicing, and as such presents an opportunity to appreciate just how important a role happiness plays in the proper education of our children. How do we raise happy children
The two bachurim knocked at the heavy wooden door. They had been told that a Jew lived here, which is why they were going to try and offer their “wares” – a bracha on the dalet minim.
