thank you to who ever wrote this.. we all know these things, and very deeply inside, yet how much more empowering it is to take those emotions and write them or say them into such powerful words.. not grub language.. not necesary at all.. just strong..voice ones feelings, and then we just have to try to put all the broken and torn pieces of ourselves back together.. n try to stand up.. and slowly learn to walk again.. n talk again, and relearn how to live again..
Hashem ad mosai..

Well written, Shkoach!

Maybe the B’chein of such a well written peice should be focusing on increasing Ahavas Yisroel amongst ourselves.

Yasher Koach, Shimon. You are evidently following in your father’s footsteps.

i understand what he is referring to in tragedies, but what is the point of the article?

From your heart...
Guest
From your heart...

to Mine and All Others! Words spoken from this raw place naturally reach the depths, strumming the chord. I prefer it plays joy and laughter but sometimes the vibration is one of tears- thank you for articulating your feelings as they speak for hearts alike all over the globe!

It may be time for all of us to examine & really learn the REBBE’s Sicha of Chayai Sorah Nun Baisso that we can really complete our Shlichus as thr M’Shalaiach wants us to.

To the confused people:

Rabbi Posner is talking about all of the sadness we have had recently, many deaths and sick people, but he probably also wrote this article because of the fact that Mendy Deren is his nephew and this is his way to express his sadness.

i felt the same way it was such an auspicious moment,

"Oh G-d, when will this end?"
Guest
"Oh G-d, when will this end?"

You’ve expressed what we are all feeling –
Let’s unite and make the geulah a reality ALREADY –
The Rebbe said “Ker a velt heint”
We can transform Golah to Geulah with the Aleph of Achdus…
Can we humbly suggest a silmultaneous massive Achdus rally around the world in this powerful Chodesh HaGeulah uniting ALL YIDDEN!
Please comment…looking for ideas…

is hashgocha protis in your vocabulary?
Guest
is hashgocha protis in your vocabulary?

It would seem – that your emunah is only dependant on your ability to readily understand the ways of Hashem. Absent of that – you generalize whatever would appear to you as bad, evil etc. As truly being completely bad and evil with no other plausible interpretation. Do you profess to understand Hashem and why certain things happen to certain people? Do bad things ALWAYS happen to BAD people, and GOOD things ALWAYS happen to GOOD people?! Were the 6 million yiden who perished – BAD people? There are and were injustices perpetrated against some fine and wonderful people –… Read more »

A good article. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. (Though, COL, it could use some serious editing help.)

i and many others were saying the same until my friend responded that achdus on the scale we wish for ain’t happening. In place of trying to accomplish the impossible each one shoud improve on their own achdus within their own family and friends Each one of us should improve in SHOLOM and Achdus so b’maila there will be achdus on the forefront.

Hachloto on Achdus

Each Shliach should work on an area of Achdus. That is very important. The Aibershter is asking something of us.. How many wake up calls do we need.Also The heads of Lubavitch should set an axample of true Chassidishe achdus.
