Too painful

The end of an era
July 15, 2021 6:51 pm

So sad.
This brings to (a temporary) end, an Era of glory and radiance, especially in The Rebbe’s Chassiddus and teachings – till the coming of Moshiach

Even for those AFTER Gimmel Tammuz
July 15, 2021 7:32 pm

For the BTs that came to 770 after Gimmel Tammuz and Yidden that became shluchim in the last year’s, Reb Yoel was a physical reminder of ‘what was’… Now we have to stand on the shoulders and finish the job

It’s crazy

July 15, 2021 7:37 pm

I do not speak Yiddish and Reb Yoel did not know me personally yet he stood up for me and defended me using the Rebbe’s position regarding my very controversial situation which could have put him in Jeopardy personally

nevertheless, Reb Yoel stood up for me, a complete stranger, and this goes to verify that he was truly a Torah scholar because he had a love for Jews, even ones he did not know

From the Rebbe Rayatz

The 3 Loves: The Love for G-d, The Love for Torah, The Love for all Jews

By starting with a Love for all Jews, one will come to feel and develop his Love for G-d

BDE feeling the loss
July 15, 2021 8:04 pm

He is also survived by the many chassidim who love and revere him. May we see him here with the Geulah shlaimah NOW

July 15, 2021 8:08 pm

Speechless. BDE. Yesterday was just the yartzeit of the Ari hakadosh. May he storm the heavens and beg Hashem to send our Rebbe MHM NOW!AD MOSAI!!

Oy, it hurts and it’s kind of unsettling

One by one our Brightest greatest leaders have been leaving
The world is not the same without Jonathan Sacks, Even Yisrael, Rabbi Groner, Rabbi Schwei, Pinya Korf, Yoel Kahn etc
We need leaders

Although I live far, although I am young, although I don’t speak Yiddish, although I am worlds apart, my gratitude to Reb Yoel is beyond expression of plain words. His presence left a giant impression on me – just by seeing him on the street or listening to his audios on Chassidus. He showed me what a Chossid means in a vivid way, living in the world.

Interesting that R’ Pinye was 3 day after 17 Tammuz on 20 Tammuz, and R’ Yoel 3 days before 9 Av on 6 Av

So so sad, moshiach needs to come already!! Ad Masai?!!

a massive loss to all Chassidim
July 16, 2021 1:36 am

We are devastated in Israel. Reb Yoel will be again at the side of our Rebbe, disseminating the Rebbe’s Torah, but now he will also be at the foot of the Kisei HaKavod.

But how much more can we take, here on Olam Haba’ah?

Any where to write about him?
July 16, 2021 2:29 am

Are there any WhatsApp chats or somewhere to email stories or things heard from him?

The Rebbe’s חוזר was also taken away from us??!! With whom are we left with from our glorious past and era? From the last links we have to the Rebbe. Sad day for Lubavitch.

All the Rebbes Torah that we have printed nowadays – was all based on HIS הנחות and the way he wrote it.

This Shabbos חזון he will be with the Rebbe in Gan Eden, once again, Chazerring his Torah!!

Moshiach now!!!!
July 16, 2021 8:48 am

The Rebbe promised us that this is the last generation of exile, REDEMPTION NOW!!!!!

Moshiach now!!!!
July 16, 2021 8:50 am

Again so important The Lubavitcher Rebbe promised us this is the last generation of exile, Moshiach now!!!

Moshiach now!

He was probably needed to help bring down the bais hamikdash… moshiach now, before tisha biav!
