“Our house is located at the edge of the settlement. On that frightful Friday night the lights were on until very late. The whole house was bustling with life. We never imagined that during those very moments as our son cried out, ‘Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings… in order to put an end to enemy and avenger,’ the terrorist killers were looking through our living room window with greedy eyes.” This is the moving and thrilling story of Rabbi Dovid Schneersohn and his wife, Vicky, the Rebbe’s shluchim in Itamar, who work there with literal self-sacrifice.
On Motzaei Pesach 5751, I was sitting with some fellow shluchim and farbrenging about the special giluyim we had just merited. We spoke mainly about the Rebbe’s letter of 25 Adar which the Rebbe dedicated, in unique fashion, to the wonders that occurred during the Gulf War. The Rebbe wrote that these miracles were more apparent than those of Purim, and added that those who know what is going on behind the scenes comprehend more and more the wonders and miracles.
The Chassid R’ Chanoch Glitzenstein a”h was one of the distinguished Chabad askanim in Eretz Yisroel since the beginning of the Rebbe’s leadership and was one of the people who brought the message of Chabad Chassidus to the Chassidim of other streams and to many others outside of Chabad. * He was a man who juggled many roles: writer and historian, menahel of Yeshivas Toras Emes and many other Chabad mosdos in Yerushalayim, as well as trusted shliach of the Rebbe on various secret missions. * A brief glimpse into his life.
No sooner than the Mishkan, the temporary Sanctuary in the desert, is dedicated, the Torah proceeds to discuss the laws of Kashrus: which animals, fish and fowl are permissible for consumption.
“It has to be that, I’m telling you!” “And I’m telling you that it can be anything but that!” “You’re wrong!” This was the back and forth between Shimmy and Duvy. I stood on the side and listened to them while trying to come up with other possibilities that would solve the mystery.
