    “I Miss the Days…”

    From the COLlive Inbox: This was written Sunday night as I watched on COLlive a video of the Rebbe during dollars in 770. Oh, how I remember and miss those days... Full Story

    I am so sorry to see that the Rebbe had to look at Fred Flintstone!

    Touching - But we need Tachlis!

    Each and every one of us have the same sentiments. But where is the “ASHEL LOCHAYN”? We know that nothing happens to a Tzaddik without his consent. The fact that Gimmel Tammuz happened … we must conclude that the Rebbe understood what’s best for us.

    Somehow the Rebbe wants and knows that we must dig deeper in, and reveal inner Koichs that we never thought we could have, while making our Hiskashrus stronger.

    Yearning for the days of old .. is healthy…. turnning these emotions into positive actions has to be the Rotzon of our Rebbe!

    I think it’s time you get on with your life and not live in the past.

    It’s in your hands to live for today and create for yourself a brighter future

    I wish I wish I could have been there standing on that line … chasing that friend … my speed drastically reduced by a large pair of hands hastily grabbing me out of the path that the Rebbe was about to walk. I wish I wish I could have been there when the dollar meant that everything will be alright. A blessing for success in all matters goes far beyond the value at the stock exchange. I wish I wish i could have experienced the days when the lekach was fresh, and standing on a line to get it was… Read more »

    A beautiful article, very well writen.

    This line however, is a fabrication and a distortion of history.

    I VERY RECENTLY WENT THROUGH MAJOR SURGERY. WITH MANY TESTS, SOME MORE SERIOUS THAN OTHERS, AND COULD NEVER HAVE COME THROUGH MOST OF THEM INCLUDING THE SURGERY B”H WITHOUT ANY HITCHES WHATSOEVER IF I DIDN’T KNOW FOR A FACT (THROUGH THE MANY DIRECT ANSWERS FROM THE REBBE, YES, VIA THE IGROS AS WELL AS VIDEO AT THE OHEL) THAT THE REBBE WAS RIGHT THERE WITH ME ALL ALONG THE WAY. YES, I MISS NOT BEING ABLE TO SEE THE REBBE WITH MY OWN EYES, BUT I KNOW WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT THAT HE IS HERE. NEVER EVER FOR… Read more »

    Thank you

    That was so simply powerful.

    I never knew those days.

    For the generations that came after, we only know those days through you.

    Help us remember.

    I am speechless. This so totally describes my childhood. Especially the part about the beepers. And when lag b’omer fell on Sunday, how we waited for weeks for that day. For every person that grew up in Crown Heights in the 70-80s – this is how we lived. There was nothing else except the Rebbe and 770. It was our life. I am so sad that the next generation not only is missing all of this, but has no idea of what they are missing. My heart aches whenever we reminisce about the old days. Those were the glory days…… Read more »
