    stop talking, start singing!

     לכבוד הרב שליט"א!

    הרב הזכיר את האימרא של רבי נחמן מברסלב על השירה, שכשהחיים הם שיר ומישהו שר איתך זה לא מפריע אלא עוזר וזה נקרא הרמוניה... 

    אחרי זה דיברתם על ההבדל בין ספר קהלת לספר שיר השירים, שבקהלת מקבלים תמונה שהבל הבלים אמר קהלת הכל הבל... ובשיר השירים הציור שמצטייר שם שונה לגמרי מקהלת...

    אז חשבתי לאחד את הדברים שהרב שליט"א הזכיר, שזה ההבדל בין שני הספרי קודש, שאם החיים הם "שיר" אז רואים בכל דבר אהבה ויופי אבל אם החיים הם "דברי קהלת" שם רואים את הכל כהבל הבלים ומירדה שמחכים שיעבור...

    thank you so much!!!!! AMAZING!!!

    I can only think about 1943, the middle of the Fire of The Shoa, Where Our Dear Holy Brothers Sisters, Holy Childrens, Mothers and Fathers, were Suffering the Unthinkable at the Hands of Demonics. NEVER FORGET, and REVENGE 😢😟😰😭

    we have a chabad house on campus  with BH many students who would like to go to crown heights for the pagisha but because our boss no longer gets along with the head of state our chabad house is no longer "official " Our students are not accepted into the program. how can this be when all children are who are not religious want to be together in crown heights not be accepted? this doesn't fit with our chabad mentality.

    Question for Rabbi YY

    How can I explain the rebbe to a college student who feels like chabad worships the rebbe? Also can you explain the whole idea of why ppl think it’s their mission to spread that the rebbe is alive?

      You can't explain hiskashrus to tzaddikim to college students. You first need to deprogram them from a lifetime of looking at filth and toeva. After they do teshuva they won't be able to live without the tzaddikim

        Show me where Gd deprogrammed the children of Israel?  That is the way of darkness!

      After the Holocaust Israel was broken, just like after Egypt. Broken people need love and relationship.  The Rebbe provided that love.  As Moses and a shepherd, he went to the corners of the earth to find his wandering flock of sheep.  All lost and found sheep love their kind-hearted shepherd!  That is lower nature.  

      If they worshipped the Rebbe, the law of G-d would not matter!  He transformed them from lower-natured sheep into chabadniks.  All children love dearly their kind-hearted parents. Only one who has never experienced the depth of love from a true shepherd would question that relationship.

      For some, though, they could pervert the relationship, as with all things good, they can be prostituted for evil!

      The Rebbe taught G-d, but understood the importance of love in building a character and understanding the character of Go-?

      Is the military a cult?  They demand absolute obedience, etc.

      The role of a Rebbe is to be an example of a true Aved Hashem, servant of Hashem, as a person who is completely dedicated to Hashem's and His will. If a Rebbe is anything but that -- it is not a genuine Rebbe.
