The Rebbe said that the Rebbe Rayatz’s sichos just prior to Yud Shvat 5710 were meant to provide us with a message as to how to understand the events that were to follow. * In the most recent sichos of 5751- 5752, the Rebbe reiterates in an unprecedented way that there will be eternal life as a soul in a body without any interruption (i.e., the Rebbe will live on forever without the need to experience histalkus).

R’ Dovid Geudj, R’ Alon Nevo and lately, also R’ Eli Devoras have brought spiritual meaning to their work at the corporate giant Intel, and have turned their Chabad activities at the company into something that wouldn’t put even a large Chabad house to shame. * In addition to the shiurim, they hold farbrengens with many participants and do a tremendous amount of work around the holidays. * “People know that just like any place in Eretz Yisroel and the world, there are Chabad representatives at Intel too.”
R’ Shraga Elimelech (Meilich) Kaplan went to Tomchei T’mimim and became one of the diligent talmidim there. * For many years he was persecuted because he spread Torah and he was even arrested several times. He finally left Russia for Eretz Yisroel where he was appointed maggid shiur in the new Tomchei T’mimim in Lud and the rav of the Chabad community there. * Part 2 of 2

A Jew who gave a contribution to a Chabad institution requested the Rebbe’s bracha to find his bashert, after trying twice to establish a Jewish home - and failing. In an amazing answer from Igros Kodesh, the Rebbe reminded him of an incident that took place decades earlier when he was a young boy, thereby changing his life and freeing him from a terrible emotional trauma.
There are two getting ready for the Geula, the chitzon and the p’nimi. Both want Moshiach to come already. What is the difference between them? How can a chitzon become a p’nimi when, if he has such an ambition, that too is driven by external factors?
“I hear that you are writing in the newspapers now,” the Rebbe said to Ms. Geula Cohen. “Nu, writing is also good, but it’s not the main thing. The main thing is the youth. You have to speak to the youth, not write to them. Why don’t you talk to young people? They’re waiting for someone to speak to them, but there isn’t anyone. People are giving speeches to them, yet everyone is so amazed why they fail to get excited.”
Mendy went on mivtzaim as always. He chose a street and began going from building to building, home to home, knocking on each door and offering t’fillin. Boruch Hashem, the response was usually positive and many people did the mitzva.
