i was standing next to the bochur who wrote for Bais Chayainu he asked what was the time it was 1:24 PM when the Rebbe entered the car. after the Rebbe waved and entered the car as the car was pulling out the Rebbe waved one more time.

these are the thoughts that children and newcomers to the shchuna need to hear. For those who were too young or not here, you can’t imagine the energy and the life.How I miss it. The simonim are all here. Moshiach is definitely around the bend. As the song goes: Oh Rebbe oh Rebbe we miss you…….

Wow, powerful words! I am your age and have long felt that our age has it especially hard. On one hand we were children old enough to remember but our memory is a haze. We don’t have the experiences of those 5 years+ and older
The kids who never saw a thing, well of course it’s a nebach but at least they haven’t a clue what they are missing.

Rebbe waved

Rebbe waved

the Rebbe waved to a guest from Eretz Yisroel who came for a wedding the next day in Montreal. The family was standing there getting nickles from the Rebbe and the Rebbe got into the car to drive to the ohel and the family got into a car to drive to the airport. We heard the news in the car and at the chasunah the chosson said that “a chosson, b’tor melech is gozer that the Rebbe be gezunt”

30 Years Old - The perfect age!

30 Years Old - The perfect age!

On the one hand I must agree with the writer and post 8, but there is something extremely powerful about the age we were. Politics meant nothing to us. We loved the Rebbe with all our heart and soul. I remeber vividly after 3 tammuz in Mesivta. Each and every one of us loved and missed the Rebbe genuinely. I remember farbrengens where we would sing those camp songs from the summer right after 3 tamuz. I would cry with true tears of love – exactly like a child mourns a parent. We lived together, we missed the Rebbe together,… Read more »

I too remember standing outside by shain shul, and when we found out I reecall going to 770 and there were minyanin of tehillim starting, and we were just waiting around for information, but yes those days were… Unexplainable, excitement for what was about to happen any minute,, but sad b/c we didn’t have our Rebbe as we knew him previously,,, and everyone had a different opinion of what the Rebbe meant,,,,,,,,,oy if we only had that now

I am much older as I am now over 50 and i still can clearly remember those days and tears come down from my eyes. We all knew that the Rebbe will come out of his room and continue to be with us. May we see this NOW.

Tears are flowing down my cheeks how much I miss the Rebbe. I am 37 yrs old and i feel every moment grateful to all the Rebbe gave us the rebbe formed us to how we think a]nd what we do every moment of the day. all day long every step i take i think to myself…what would the rebbe want me to do or say in that situation. We are glued to the videos of the Rebbe and are able to learn everyday through the sichos, farbregans and conversations thanks to JEM. I look forward to the day that… Read more »
