Both the father and his son! What gifts Rabbis Friedman are to Lubavitch and how lucky we are that we have the opportunity to share in the hafatza of maayanus hachassidus!

Truly deserves our support

I think everyone was and/or is impacted by Rabbi Manis. Whether they realize it or not

Thank you Rabbi Friedman

I used to listen to your recorded classes when they became available online while I was in high school. Those were what made chassidus click for me as personal and relevant. Thank you!!

a friend of mine who came from the USSR told me he met rabbi Friedman when he first came to America and in a flustered panic told him all his problems. Rabbi Friedman sat in silence and listened to everything and when my friend said, “so what do you think?” rabbi Friedman paused for a moment and then slowly but deliberately shook his head. That gave my friend such clarity he couldn’t believe it. Rabbi Friedman’s days are filled beginning to end with helping people from all walks of life im sure and he deserves all the support we can… Read more »

Rabbi Friedmans online classes changed my life, as a high school kid and now as a shlucha I don’t know where I would be without his constant guidance and wisdom

Love this

So true and so well written. Laughed twice while reading.

Truly an underappreciated voice

Who hasn’t told over one or R manis’s stories? “Unwanted children” as one example.

I have fallen asleep!
December 6, 2023 12:51 pm

More than once, Rabbi Friedman’s talks have helped me fall asleep during my most anxious times.
His words are gems, they should be treasured and shared to whoever will hear

The Truth about R Manis
December 6, 2023 1:04 pm

As a chabadnik i had heard of him for years. But never really paid attention. Then I heard speak for a shliach and was blown away. I mentioned it to someone who had heard him speak many times. He was suprised I wasnt up to speed. Since then, Ive heard great ideas and learned a fair amount. I think hes the most original thinker in and out of Chabad. Mandatory disclaimer: I do not agree with everything he says or how he says it, especially when venturing to topics that he doesnt have expertise in. Ive always felt it dimished… Read more »

In case you missed it, R Eli Friedman is a talent. If you arent reading his weekly emails, you are missing something special.

and Rabbi Mottel Friedman’s Parsha pages! They will transform your children’s Shabbos table! I think its torahpoems.com

How do I enroll to receive his emails?

So sweetly written. I well remember those days in Bais Chana, before Eli was old enough to participate!
So cute to hear about it from the kids’ perspective. We marveled at how well behaved they were and now, with our own grandchildren, we wonder even more!
