MyLife: Chassidus Applied – Episode 21 Airs Tonight at 8PM
Twenty years since Gimmel Tammuz challenges our community to do some serious introspection and soul searching. What are we doing to merit the title of being a chassid of the Rebbe? How are we realizing the directives we were given? What about those of us who have one foot in the door and one out? In this week’s episode, Rabbi Jacobson will address the label “Chabad-lite” that some have recently coined to define themselves and others.
Other topics to be addressed in Sunday’s broadcast include: What should be our attitude to secular family members, either those that never were aware of Yiddishkeit, or those that are presently not involved? How do we interact at weddings, parties and family gatherings? What should we tell our children? How do we balance love and non-judgmentalism while maintaining our integrity and standards? Rabbi Jacobson will discuss tools for mediating conflicts in a wide range of scenarios, from community arguments to family disputes.
Tune in this Sunday night for the next episode of MyLife: Chassidus Applied, which will address these sensitive issues. This hour-long dose of insight is meant to inform, inspire and empower us by applying the teachings of Chassidus to help us face practical and emotional challenges and difficulties in our personal lives and relationships.
The topics in this Sunday’s hour-long broadcast will include:
· What role does the Rebbe play in your life?
· Tools for mediating conflict
· Unfrum/Non-Jewish family members
· Is Chabad-lite legitimate?
MyLife: Chassidus Applied addresses questions that many people are afraid to ask and others are afraid to answer. When asked about the sensitive topics he has been addressing, Rabbi Simon Jacobson commented, “I understand that the stakes are high, but the silence and lack of clarity on matters plaguing the community can no longer go unaddressed. The stakes of not providing answers are even higher.”
The on-going series has provoked a significant reaction from the community, with thousands of people viewing each live broadcast and hundreds of questions pouring in.
