After the Rebbe told R’ Zajac that, despite the opening of the gates in Russia, American citizens still could not go there and print the Tanya, R’ Zajac continued printing Tanyas all over the United States. * After suggesting that a former Russian citizen be the one to print the Tanya there, the Rebbe agreed and R’ Moshe Chaim Levin went to Russia to print the Tanya. * Then, in Cheshvan of 5752, when they gave the Rebbe Tanyas that were printed in Russia, they were surprised at the Rebbe’s question, “What’s happening with Russia?” * Part 2
I have seen many activists devoted to their cause, but I never saw such a phenomenon like Reb Meir. He was an amazing amalgam: an exceptional Torah scholar, learned and G-d fearing, along with being a community activist with the full passion of his soul. One could readily see how it all flowed from one source – his deep soul hiskashrus to the Rebbe Melech HaMoshiach.” That is how R’ Dovid Chanzin described R’ Meir Freiman upon his untimely passing. * In honor of his yahrtzait on 12 Tishrei 5756

…the very last verse of the Torah which is G-d’s eulogy for Moses who has just passed away… describes his “strong hand” and the “great awe that Moses performed before the eyes of all Israel.” What is the meaning of his “strong hand” and what was the “awesome” act that he performed before “the eyes of all Israel”? …what was so spectacular and positive about his shattering of the tablets?
This week, in the “Open Forum” for timely discussions by readers of Beis Moshiach, thoughts on the passing of 22 years since the Rebbe said we need to publicize to all that the Nasi Ha’dor is the Navi Ha’dor
The first Shabbos after Gimmel Tammuz 5754, the first issue of Yechi HaMelech was published and revived the Chassidim. * A thousand weeks passed since then and every week a booklet is published packed with excerpts from sichos which nourish the faith of the Chassidim. * R’ Menachem Mendel Blinitzky spoke with Beis Moshiach about the new projects, along with the sorrow over having reached the thousandth issue and still not seeing the Rebbe
A lone avreich’s work has touched the hearts of Jews from all over Eretz Yisroel and the world, illuminating their homes with the light of Chassidus. Rabbi Sagi Weiss, who has managed to bring dozens of young people to the path of Chassidus, tells Beis Moshiach about the revolutionary audio disk project that he initiated, calling upon other Chabad Chassidim to join
