    You mention that in Pesachim it says that the old man who walked in with Shimon HaTzadik was "Yisrael Saba". What is the source for this? The Yerushalmi and Tosfos say it was the Shechina. I'd love to see this inside.

    your work is this

    Wishing you and your family a ksiva vachasima tova lshana tova umesuka, with revealed blessings and goodness raining upon you and continued success in your Shlichus of inspiring so many Yidden.

    From the deepest place of my heart, i thank you for all of your effort, hard work and dedication which i have benefited so tremendously from, and by consequence, so many others as well. I am grateful for your commitment to us and always bringing so much value and substance to your talks which move our souls and expand our internal frontiers. 


    Thank you for believing in your students, “blowing hope within the fallen sparks” and seeing within the Siseras if our generation, the true Rebbi Akivas that they are.

    Dear Rabbi Jacobson, I'm a big fan of yours. But u being a shliach & representing the Rebbe, i never recall the Rebbe talking so graphic about such matters. Wishing u & your family a healthy & happy new year.
