Over the course of time, the Rebbe reconnects “the rope of his soul,” rejoining even the individual strands that had been severed. How much more so does the Rebbe have an impact on those who reflect the positive aspect of “amo” (as above Section 5), helping them attain a state whereby the ruach shtus is unable to cover over the truth, etc.

…“in every generation an individual descended from Yehuda is born who is qualified to be the Moshiach for Israel,” and that “one who qualifies because of his righteousness to be the Redeemer and when the time arrives G-d will be revealed to him and send him, etc.” And according to the announcement of my sainted father-in-law, the leader of our generation, the singular shliach of our generation, the singular Moshiach of our generation, that everything has already concluded, it’s understood that there has begun to be fulfilled the “send now the one You will send,”…
R’ Bentzion Milecki, a senior Chabad rabbi in Australia, received dozens of answers from the Rebbe regarding Hafatzas HaYahadus. He was one of the founders of the first hafatza organization in Sydney and has served as the rav of the second largest shul there for three decades. * In this interview, he discusses the chiddush of the Rebbe, the fact that every Jew is a shliach, and shares an extraordinary miracle he experienced with an answer he received from the Rebbe four years ago.
The Rebbe Rayatz asks us for mesirus nefesh. Not earth-shattering mesirus nefesh, but the type of mesirus nefesh which entails forgoing our desires in order to do Hashem’s will. Pursuing this entails effort similar to or even more than the ultimate in mesirus nefesh as we know it. * From a speech delivered by Rabbi Shmuel Butman at the Yud Shvat farbrengen in 770 in 5772.
Chassidic philanthropist, R’ Sholom Ber Drizin, who contributes millions of dollars a year to Chabad mosdos and shluchim, in a fascinating discussion with Beis Moshiach. * His childhood years of poverty, his father, the mashpia R’ Avrohom Maiyor, the life of mesirus nefesh in Soviet Russia, life in a refugee camp in a barrack with Rebbetzin Chana a”h, his relationship with the Rebbe when he was a bachur and the bracha which increased his wealth a thousand times over.
We must now try to understand the deeper underlying connection between Moses’ splitting of the sea and Maimonides’ writing of his magnum opus. On the surface, these two events represent totally different genres of might. The first is the power to control nature and the latter is the power to codify Jewish law.
His accomplishments for Yiddishkeit are legendary. His hiskashrus to the Rebbe knew no bounds. His love of Torah and Mesiras Nefesh for the honor of Chassidus and the Jewish people are famous. * Presented for the first Yarzheit of HaRav HaChassid Reb Avraham Dov Hecht
Interpretation of this classified information shows that it was at a security level far greater than the data Jonathan Pollard gave to the Israelis, when he was employed by U.S. naval intelligence. However, this is not just a case of “passing classified information to an ally” – the crime Pollard was convicted of violating; this is a flagrant case of espionage in its purest form – at a cost of millions of dollars.
This is a real description of my father who is not an “official” shliach. He works for a living, but to him it is obvious that the Rebbe’s shlichus is not limited to those who have the title of shliach, but is the shlichus of every one of Anash.
In our incessant pursuit of quantity, we lose the quality. But the opposite extreme would also be destructive: An unhealthy obsession with quality can lead us to get stuck and accomplish nothing.
