    Sensitivity
    B"H

    I am awe of the Rebbe's sensitivity. I learned that avoidance of actions that could lead to misunderstanding is a necessary ingredient of compassion to people around me. Thank you for telling us stories about the Rebbe.

      What browser are you using? Any other browser BESIDES for Safari for Mac allows you to skip around by dragging the cursor.



      If you are using Safari, I recommend you download firefox for mac and use that.



      Let me know if this helps.

    Keep up the good work!
    I'm hoping to view this since my husband watched it and FOUR times referred to it as "exceptional"! That is HIGH prize from him.

    As Kotzker Rebee, I think, said, if I am I because I am I, and you are you because you are you, then we can talk. if I do not know I am a convert to Yiddishkait or not because I am I, and you do not know if you are a Jew because of you, we can not disagree, No?

    Mentioning Centers of Idolatry
    The Gemara says, "Kol letzanusa asura chutz m'letzanusa d'avoda zara." Some explain that by mentioning the name of an Idolatry and to see that it has no positive effect on that 'deity' that is the greatest letzanus (mockery).

    Kayo
    Kayo,

    I enjoy reading about your jolts of inspiration from these weekly segments. However, a line from your post is contradictory from a chassidic perspective. And I quote, "Until I met Chabad, I was nobody." Internalizing the soul of Chabad should succeed in doing away with your 'yeshus' or identity as a separate entity. As the story with Reb Hillel Paritcher goes, "Before I came to Chabad I felt that I was on the level of the Tzaddik. However, since coming to Chabad and learning the Tanya halevai beinoni." Keep it up KAYO.

    L'chatchila Ariber
    B"H



    I was born in Tokyo. My parents are Japanese. Until I met Chabad, I was nobody - I was I, because you are you. As I have started learning Yiddish Kait from Chabad Lubavitch, a firm, and deep Identity have been formed in me - a convert to Yiddish Kait, and I love it to the core. The life of this identity, with the firm conviction and commitment to Yiddish Kait is much easier than going with the flow.

    Now I am trying to acquire one of Chabad Credo,

    L’chatchila Ariber - from the first go over it. Proceed as if there is no obstacle in front of you. The Rebbe said, you are a Jew, you can do impossible!



    Shalom
