The topics in this week’s 402nd episode of the highly acclaimed MyLife: Chassidus Applied series, with Rabbi Simon Jacobson, will include:
· Chassidus Applied to Pesach Sheni
o What personal message does this day offer us?
o Is it true that “it’s never too late” – aren’t there mistakes that cannot be reversed or corrected?
o If it’s truly never too late, why isn’t there a Pesach Shlishi, Riviei, etc.?
o Did the Rebbe ever say that Pesach Sheni is an opportune time for Moshiach to come?
· Lessons from 13 Iyar: 70th yahrzeit of the Rebbe’s brother, Reb Yisroel Aryeh Leib
· Chassidus Applied to Lag B’Omer
o What is its personal relevance to us?
o Is there a connection between this day and Moshiach?
o Why is there a custom to use a bow and arrow on this day?
o Are any of its rituals taken from non-Jewish sources?
· Students of Rabbi Akiva:
o Why do we cease mourning on Lag B’Omer and on the other hand, we don’t make weddings after Lag B’Omer?
o What lessons do we learn today from the students of Rabbi Akiva dying during this time due to disrespecting each other?
o When people disrespect each other today does it have a negative impact?
· How do we respond to a prominent rabbi arguing that we are not allowed to demand “we want Moshiach now” and other things the Rebbe initiated or endorsed?
· What can we learn from the rising gas prices?
· Iyar: Where do months come from?
· Is it alright for me to have linens with the image of butterflies embroidered on them?
· Chassidus question: Is there a difference between the energy generated on a Biblical holiday and a Rabbinic one? Will we celebrate these holidays after Moshiach comes?
