By focusing on hiskashrus, the Rebbe’s promises are fulfilled. The Rebbe will fulfill the promises he made to each person, including the general promise that he made to the Jewish people at large, “Immediately to t’shuva brings to immediate redemption,” and he will lead us to Moshiach.

Physics is not what it used to be. “The spirit of G-d hovers over the waters” of physics. Modern physics has reached the point where they are really looking for the beginning of everything and the idea (maybe even the fear) that it might be G-d is always there.
Seven years ago, in Av 5765, the State of Israel expelled the Jews of Gush Katif, destroyed their homes, abandoned their shuls, and exhumed their dead. Rabbi Sholom Dovber Wolpo, one of the leaders in the fight against the withdrawal and expulsion, was interviewed by Beis Moshiach soon after the churban took place.
Heishke was nearly bar mitzva when his family had to leave their small town. * Under unbearable conditions, the family fought to survive and to lead a Jewish-Chassidic life.
It’s important to publicize the names of those people who spearheaded the disgraceful process of the Gush Katif expulsion. The public must know who was responsible for this colossal tragedy. It’s imperative that these people should not be permitted to guide the ship of state and that such a crime against the Jewish People should never be allowed to happen again.
An egg is larger than an olive. If indeed it is praiseworthy to thank G-d for smaller amounts, the Torah should have reversed the order. It should have stated that we are deserving of favoritism because we bless G-d even when eating the amount of an egg, or even a smaller amount—the size of an olive. Instead, it says that we recite the Birkas HaMazon even if we eat an olive’s worth (the smaller amount) and even if we eat the size of an egg (the larger amount)!
Young people who only recently got involved in Jewish life immerse in a mikva with freezing water * A phone conversation in which the shliach’s offer is turned down ends with a successful peula * The inspiring generosity of a Jew from Williamsburg * Approval from the city comes just after the construction of the mikva begins * A special dream with the Rebbe and the Rebbe Rayatz * These are only some of the stories that the shliach, Rabbi Dov Axelrod of Cherkassy, Ukraine has to share!
Rabbi Levi Garelik, who is named after the Rebbe’s father, Rabbi Levi Yitzchok Schneersohn, tells of his first yechidus with the Rebbe and how the Rebbe led him to connect the first “Levi,” the son of Yaakov, with the Rebbe’s father.
Many decades ago, the Rebbe asked that Chassidim who were familiar with meditation develop something “kosher,” without any spiritual component to it. The Rebbe explained that creating a proper alternative would save many Jews from idol worship. Furthermore, those who truly need exercises like these for their health would have a kosher format. * Rabbi Dror Shaul decided to develop courses that provide a meditative experience along with contemplation of Chassidic concepts.
