Just a Bracha
June 30, 2010 2:40 am

May Hashem bless this family with more and more, because they are great baalei Tzedakah. If they had a bracha from the Rebbe, I can assure u all that they deserve it!
Bracha VeShefah VeHatzlacha.

Looks to me, that the discussion here is not in regards to Reb Yossel G, he should be matzliach untill the hisgalus of moshiach as the richest man on earth, and may he do all the right things with it, however what is our look on life in general, where should our kuch be/ who should we tell our kids to respect, and what should they hear us talk about around the shabbes table this friday night?

Good shabbes to all.

BS:D 1.Seems like a lot of jealosy, I doubt if any of the critical commentators would mind it if Hashem bestowed the wealth on them. Kindly return it if that occurs. 2 Most imprtant is that you are contradicting the words and wishes of the Rebbe who called Reb Gutnick into his house and told him it is is time for Lubavitchers to become wealthy 3 Even more important is that he used his wealth to further the Rebbes work and in the process made a worldwide Kiddush Hashem.I wonder if the commentators would do the same if they had… Read more »

The Rebbe once said at a farbrengen that those supporting the shluchim are just as important and have just as much schar. His wealth growing, is just like his chabad house growing (being that BH he uses it very well!).

Hayom Yom Nissan 9:
Jewish wealth is not houses and gold. The everlasting Jewish wealth is: Being Jews who keep Torah and Mitzvot, and bringing into the world children and grandchildren who keep Torah and Mitzvot.

On the other hand,

Hayo yom Tevet 27:

The Alter Rebbe said:Jewish physical matter is spiritual. G-d gives us material bounty for us to to transform into something spiritual, when occasionally it is not so (g-d has not provided the material wealth) then we must give G-d whatever we can,even a pauper’s offering, and then He gives generously.

May 27, 2010 8:16 am

last time i checked my memory bank, i seem to remember the teachings of my mashpia telling us that what we learn in chassidus is meant for REAL not just as a learning exercise. it sounds and tsetse very goyish to me to be concerned about whos who in the fortune 500 of the chsidic world, i would rather see a reshimah of bochurim and yungerlait that accomplished somthing in learning mivtzaim etc. etc. we are allways upset when we see one of our children going off the derech of what our Rabeim are teaching us, well let us lead… Read more »
