MyLife: Chassidus Applied Episode 48
As the candles of your menorah continues to increase, as you gather with loved ones, family and friends, as the light continues to pierce the darkness, tune in to a new episode of My Life: Chassidus Applied, in which Rabbi Jacobson shares Chanukah anecdotes and insights from the Rebbeim and how they celebrated Chanukah. Discover the unique power of the Chanukah menorah and why it is more powerful than the Temple menorah it commemorates.
In episode 48, Rabbi Jacobson will elucidate on the topic of a women’s role and the awesome responsibility that comes with the all-powerful feminine energy. What is the balance between serving a leader with the ideals of tznius/modesty? How can we learn from the Rebbetzin’s private approach? How can we best use own natural disposition to make an impact?
Find out what Chassidus has to say in response to a 6-year old boy’s fear of being alone at night and a grown adult’s fear of confronting the voids in life. What can be said to the Baal Teshuvah who begins to see cracks in the community, after the “honey moon” is over?
This hour-long dose of insight is meant to inform, inspire and empower us by applying the teachings of Chassidus to help us face practical and emotional challenges and difficulties in our personal lives and relationships.

MyLife: Chassidus Applied addresses questions that many people are afraid to ask and others are afraid to answer. When asked about the sensitive topics he has been addressing, Rabbi Simon Jacobson commented, “I understand that the stakes are high, but the silence and lack of clarity on matters plaguing the community can no longer go unaddressed. The stakes of not providing answers are even higher.”
The on-going series has provoked a significant reaction from the community, with thousands of people viewing each live broadcast and hundreds of questions pouring in. At the root of every question and personal challenge tackled by the series is the overarching question: Does Judaism have the answers to my personal dilemmas?
In inimitable “Jacobson-fashion”, the broadcast answers people’s questions in simple, clear language while being heavily sourced. Each episode is jam-packed with eye-opening advice from the Rebbeim, gleaned from uncovering surprising gems in their letters, sichos and maamorim that address our personal issues with disarming relevance. Simultaneously, Rabbi Jacobson is able to crystallize a concept quickly, succinctly, and poignantly for any level of listener.
