    Dollarless

    As a baal teshuva to chabad i unfortunately did not have the chance to meet the Rebbe nor get a dollar. I know so many people with hundreds of dollars that they tell me about and of course i would never ask for 1 because thats not the way i would want it to come to me. However, i have on several occasions thought…would it hurt to just give me one from your stack? $1 Rebbe for a close friend, to lift me up in a time of need? to inspire me? I have also dreamed of one day receiving… Read more »

    I NEED A DOLLAR

    I NEED A DOLLAR

    It’s amazing, I’m hosting a Chof Beis Shevat event and I really wanted to raffle off a dollar of the Rebbe so that qll the proceeds can go to q Chabad seminary in TLV. And just before I came on and read this I was thinking to post that I need a dollor of the Rebbe for the event. This event is in honor of our Rebbetzin and all proceeds will be going to our Midrahsa in Tel-Aviv. Please help if anyone can donate their dollar for a great cause.

    Seemingly you totally missed the point. Auctioning/raffling off a dollar is a total different topic. Using a dollar from the Rebbe as a money making product, is totally not what this author is targeting at. Here we’re discussing giving a dollar, selflessly, to a friend in need, someone struggling, to make bring some light into someones life. Much like #2 above.

    I'd love another dollar

    I'd love another dollar

    I was born the year of Gimmel Taamuz and therefore was not zoche to meet the Rebbe, I did receive a Rebbe dollar from my father as a gift when I got married and I really cherish that $, yet I’d love to get one more so my children iy”h would be able to have one too(obviously to share) It would be so special if that would be possible!

    Idea totally in tune with the Rebbe's outlook.

    Bal tshuva, no dollar

    i often find myself at shabbas tables w people who have dollars from the rebbe, kiddush cups from the rebbe, matzah from the rebbe… So much! As a BT i transformed my entire life and made so many sacrifices, and it pains me that I never met the rebbe (im in my 20s and BT a few yrs now), and I have nothing to show for it it seems. I try to think that HAshgacha protis hashem and the rebbe knew i could be his shlucha without physically meeting him, or having anything from him. But sometimes I get so… Read more »

    great read

    to #8,
    with all do respect, to offer ONE dollar when you have 932 of them sounds totally off and contradicts to the outer space end of what the writer is trying to say.

    This was a great read!

    very intersting concept

    very intersting concept

    I have actually been thinking for a while, that i’m so blessed to have received all these dollars.
    I once shared one of the dollars with a close friend.
    however, i question if it’s something i should be giving away.
    thank you for the perspective. would love to hear more views about this

    I only have a dollar in my dreams but....

    B”H I am a upper 40’s single I’ll say returnee because I am by no means a “ba al” Teshuva just a yid trying my hardest to grow. I am a front line soldier in the Rebbes army. If you only knew what I deal with and have gone through in the past 6 years of my return or even what dark pit the Rebbe’s hand had to reach into to pull me up. I have tell you in all sincerety I would love a Dollar from the Rebbe, I would cherish it…….and and YES I WOULD IMMEDIATELY GIVE IT… Read more »

    I’m just a regular chossid, I was born after gimmel Tammuz, it pains me so much that I never was zoche to see the Rebbe especially at times when I’m going through hardships… I sometimes wish I could ace a dollar just one dollar, something tangible from the Rebbe that I could hold close and it will give me strength in times of need.. There are chassidim who are very lucky to have received hundreds of dollars from the Rebbes holy hand, I could say I sometimes feel jealous aren’t we all chassidim, the Rebbe prepared us well for gimmel… Read more »

    Same boat

    I’m in the same boat as #2, #10, as well as many many others. However, I would find it cheap to just ask for a dollar on COL from someone feeling bad. I keep the belief that if I’m destined to receive a dollar, I will get one at the right time. Hopefully this article sparks a discussion as to why the Rebbe gave out the dollars in the first place and help bring brochos to more people.

    I do not have so many dollars but have given away quite a few and it is worth seeing the feelings of recipients of the dollars. BTW, the author is a mashpia at Chabad of the Five Towns when not at his day job.

    We all have the Rebbe

    To all of us who didn’t see the Rebbe and/or didn’t receive a dollar or Kuntres, because we were born (physically or spiritually) after Gimmel Tammuz: Do not despair: We have the Rebbe in His full glory and essence by following His ways and by learning His Sichos and Mamorim. Yes it is hard and very hard, but somewhat of strength we can receive by learning the Sichos of the first years. It does not take away from the beauty of this article, especially seeing the willingness of Chasidim to impart precious items in order to give support/blessing to those… Read more »

    firstly, #3, wow, i love how u right away said you would give a dollar to #2. it must be difficult for you, but our spreading the rebbes love , and make us all proud. im a lubavith teenager, and yes born after the Helem of Gimmel Tammuz, and, i just happened to be the son of a father who gave away 50 of his 56 Rebbe Dollars, (6 he kept for his kids weddings). To Bal Teshuvas out there, dont give up hope. The Rebbe will send you a dollar when the time is right, but this artice is… Read more »

    This is a hergesh/a feeling
    Imagine if all of us who have more than one dollar from the rebbe
    Should just make an effort to get close enough to someone who does not have single dollar to the point that to show your love to them you give them that dollar

    932?!?
    Guest
    932?!?

    Woah that’s a lot… And If you had only 900… And 32 more people who didn’t see the Rebbe get dollars from the Rebbe… How happy we would be…

    I gave dollars to several ppl

    I met someone that told me after gimmel Taamuz that he helped in some way with those taking care of the Rebba, and that he is married several years and dont have children. I told him I would bring him a dollar. I did, b”h he had twins a year
    later.

    rebbe dollars

    a person cherishes every dollar or possesion he recieved from the rebbe, so dont just say he has so many whats the big deal to give away some of them. i did once give away a dollar to a chosson ,and while i was happy to give a gift, when i gave it away , i did feel like i was losing something special and precious

    Hi I e-mailed you. Thank You for even considering it. I think this dollar will eventually get to someone who really needs it. I also think the money will be going to a great cause, one that young woman from around the world, as I have, will be benefiting from.
