    thank you!
    Thank you ,Rabbi Paltiel for teaching this Maamar in such a  clear way.

    I give a shiur after davening on shabbos in my shul and explained many points and thoughts to the women in my community.

    It s truly amazing how applicable and relevant these ideas are to our everyday lives and especialy to our relationship to Hashem.

    I look forward to learning more !

      I Davened for about a decade at the Shul across from the Police station called Beis Dovid Gershon. The Rabbi (a decendant of many Chassidc greats, but not a Lubavitcher) Rabbi Rubin Shlita (may he have a quick and complete Refua Shleima) told me numerous stories and this was among them . I don't know his source.

    in learning the maamer Al kein from yud gimmel. haman treid to be like the Koihen gadoil on yoim kippur in the avoidah of GOIRAL. the Rebbe explains the Madreigah of Goiral, KASHOICHA KOIRA, and how from there haman reasoned he could be goiver rachmono litzlan on the yidden. haloi och esov leyaakoiv, Yet he did not know the second half of the posuk of Vees yaakoiv ohavti vees eisov soneisi. ( intesant how he knew half pesukim also when it came to ador). last year i treid to explain this maamor to a yid and he told me he could not relate to it. i guess the idea of Oir and choisech the same level. and even more the idea that haman could be involved to reach madreigas that a koihen godoil reaches on yoim kippur is somthing that evaded his yeshiva training. maybe the way to explain it is exactly what this speaker was saying. that he could be a authority on judaism without knowing the toirah. haman knew the fact that G-D is infinite, Yoidea es Riboinoi, therfore why is so imprtant to be very exact in serving him. why does a yid need to look into the toirah to find out how to serve G-D because since G-D is infinite EVERYTHING GOES, light, dark, good, not good, its all in this lala land of GOIREL where everything is equal and there is no superiority of anything over the other. haman was a comservative reform rabi and he preached what they are saying today. when they bowed doen to avoidah zoro because they were doing it externally they reassoned that the big G-D will survive even when they bow down. modern day argument in the kosher arena. why does shchita have to be like shulchan aruch and KOSHER means SOCIAL ACCEPTANCE. the answer is UMORDECHAI LOI YICHRA VELOI YISHTACHAVE because TOIRAH is ONOICHI that there is bechira and BOICHER BEYISROEL AND BOICEHR DAVKA BETOIRAH UMITZVOIS VECHU. TOIMECH GOIRALI.

    Future of Judaism
    You are so right in this essay. I am extremely familiar with Conservative Judaism, having been a strong conservative Jew. But I was always looking for more. The youth there is for th emost part turned off to Yiddishkeit because they are never given Yiddiskeit.
    Check out the frum shuls which are packed with young people excited about their Judiasm.
    Thank you for this site. I agree with first comment- wish i had time to listen to and study all of the classes.
    May hash-m give you strength and resources to continue.

    The power of authenticity
    Baruch HaShem

    I first attended Conservative shul. Their siddur was English. Then I attened Orthodox shul. I was presented a authentic Chabad Davening. Though I did not understand it at all, I was struck by the beauty of Hebrew davening. And eventually, I ordered a Chabad Siddur for myself, first with English transtation. Now, I daven without translation, and can not daven in English.

    Jewish education
    You are so right. I always found it ironic that people with minimal knowledge who would be embarrassed to open their mouths in any other area feel qualified to critique the most important and deep subject in the world - G-d.
    However, what I find more disturbing is that the Jewish educational system itself is often sorely lacking in information and inspiration.
    Being a baal tshuvah, I know that I am ignorant and try to fill the vast void at sites such as this. I fear that many of our much better educated children feel they already know and were not inspired by what they learned. I know we can do better as evidenced by this site and Chabad.org. I truly appreciate what you do. Jewish educators - take note before it's too late!

    To Mordi "judaism observance"
    I am sorry for you because you don't understand what is Jewish Unity is. Jewish Unity allows criticizing each other or, better to tell, suggest each other to look/search for truth in our life, religious study, in any other aspects. This is important, especially for people, whose duties are to teach our kids to our history, prospective. Any educator/leader/activist in the Jewish organizations has to be profound in their areas of expertise. What do you think about a piano player that does not know how to play on piano? Of course, knowledge is the gift when a person works very hard every day to increase it. Government functions, as stand now, are different from teaching in the Jewish organizations. All Chabad Rabbis accept all Jews, religious, not religious. And you can be sure, when Rabbi YY Jacobson presents his lecture to big auditorium, religious and not religious people are present there. Do not mix up with different aspects. One more - everyone builds their own life and responsible for their actions.

    It's a very difficult endeavor you have on your hands.

    Although you belittle the presenter for his lack of Torah and Talmud scholarship, you make the mistake of most human beings. You belittle someone. The Rebbe always built people up. I am not dissing you. I am reminding you of your duty to accept your fellow Jew, not belittle him. When you belittle him, you belittle Him Above.

    I do appreciate your words. I also appreciate that Israel is more secular than observant. That the soldiers are more secular than observant. That kibbutzim are more secular than observant. That the secular Haganah and Irgun and politicians are responsible for bringing the state of Israel into nationhood, and protecting it to this day.

    In conclusion, your message is going to reach those who are interested, and rejected by the majority who are not. Personally, you lost me when you attacked the previous presenter. This is what turns off our youth. Jews need cohesion far more than they need religion. But don't worry about me. I will continue my religious journey with or without you.

    Abundant Holiness from 5 sentences
    Baruch HaShem

    I am just so amazed that from 5 sentences you quoted from Vayeira, you extracted such a depth of G-dliness and relevance to our live. Todah Rabah.

    Very deep class, I suggest listening twice.

    I definitely enjoyed it and got a better understanding in the meaning of "Does G-d Really Care About What I Do?
