For thirty-five years, R’ Chaim Dayan has been working as a madrich in Yeshivas HaBucharim in Kfar Chabad. * He shares methods how to properly handle children and students, how to reach them when they are glued to their phones, and the right way to instill a yearning for the Geula. * He also relates instructions that he personally received from the Rebbe’s secretary, R’ Chadakov a”h, who was an outstanding pedagogue
One of the principal mandates of bitachon is to focus on Hashem and to realize His omnipotence in the world to the exclusion of all else1. Throughout our lives, this perspective is consistently challenged; our duty is to notice the conflict with bitachon, hopefully sooner than later, and then to surmount the challenge through strengthening our bitachon. We will focus on one of those challenges now.
R’ Halperin speaks for the first time: About the secret to the success of his magnificent community, their annual group trip to the Rebbe, the way to be mekarev every Jew and convey the Besuras HaGeula without cutting corners. * His life’s story and his hiskashrus to the Rebbe, his classified service in Sayeret Matkal, his running nationwide campaigns on missions for the Rebbe. * He shares: Aside from Beis Moshiach which I look at every week, no other newspaper or magazine enters my house. * R’ Yisroel Halperin, shliach and rav of the Chabad community in Hertzliya, in a candid interview.

This week’s Parsha is VaYeitzei. It is in this week’s Torah portion that the Jewish nation finally begins to take shape. Yaakov Avinu leaves his parents’ home and travels to the decadent and immoral Charan and specifically over there, he marries and the tribes of B’nei Yisroel are born.
In recent years, Jews in New York had to contend with a new blood libel in a modern guise, in which the New York City Board of Health required parents to sign a legal consent form before their infant could have metzitza b’peh (oral suction) at a bris. * The influential Board of Health was on one side, facing a lone Chabad Chassid, a mohel by profession, on the other side. He was able to galvanize religious Jewry in New York to fight a battle that seemed hopeless. * On September 9 of this year, the NYC Board of Health rescinded that requirement. Beis Moshiach met with mohel, R’ Levi Heber, who told us about the miraculous battle that he fought and won. * A behind the scenes look at the news.
Yaakov had been working for his father-in-law Lavan for 22 years. He endured the most harsh conditions; suffering greatly from Lavan’s duplicity and corruption. An angel of G-d appears to Yaakov in a dream and advises him to return to his homeland. The Torah then recounts how Yaakov left with all his family and possessions.
