If you read the newspapers, you will get depressed. Iran, Syria, Egypt—everyone knows about them. The Chinese, behind their polite smiles, are always up to mischief—no one knows what they’re thinking. And the Russians are always flexing their muscles, trying to regain the glory of the Czars. Everyone knows what they’re thinking. So the world seems to be a mess, in deep trouble… But it’s not true.
R’ Sholom Stroks tells about the pardon he got from Shazar thanks to the intervention of “the partisan” R’ Zushe Wilyamovsky and R’ Shlomo Maidanchek.

An amazing story of Divine Providence, when a shliach from Nepal suddenly knocked on the door of the home of Rabbi Yaakov Shmuelevitz, asking to speak with him. A third Jew later joined the conversation, thereby closing the circle in a most miraculous and fascinating manner.
A few weeks before he passed away, Beis Moshiach interviewed R’ Reuven Dunin a”h about the Besuras HaGeula. * Unfortunately, the interview was not completed, but even from the part presented here, we can learn about R’ Reuven’s approach which was a combination of infinite Ahavas Yisroel and spreading the Besuras HaGeula. * We tried to retain R’ Reuven’s unique style, as heard in the recording.
The Rebbe said: If you would listen to me you should stay here, because over there you will get to know others, but over here you will get to know yourself. * A compilation of Chassidishe stories on the topic of hiskashrus to the Rebbe
That was a Hallel like none other that I’ve ever experienced. When I said the words, “I will not die for I will live and tell the deeds of G-d” I could not help but look at the walking miracle among us. * The incredible story that recently took place as heard directly from the shliach, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchok Geisinsky of Great Neck.
There is hardly any tourist, Jewish or not, who does not visit the Kosel. * I spent an entire Friday at the t’fillin stand at the Kosel, which is actually a Chabad House in every respect. * Shabbos spread its wings, but not only didn’t the activity stop, it began again in “Shabbos mode.” * Join me for a day packed with surprises at the Chabad House at the Wall.
