Thank you to have shared you story.
Thank you for reminding us that we are all special to the Rebbe and that what we do matter.

not what but how

not what but how

its how the Rebbe responded that is reflected in how you tell the story, which helps us reflect how we relate to our Rebbe. The Rebbe said “maase hu Haikar” but then showed us how to do that maase, going higher and higher, its not just the kavana behind something, it the intent that guides HOW we do it.
Thank You for sharing! Mashiach Now!

How beautiful and impressive that an eight year old boy came up with the question in the first place , tried to find an answer, and, not being satisfied, took his question to the Rebbe. May he and his family go miChayil el Chayil !

“the Rebbe had explained that since the babies were in fact just born, it would be impossible to sit them on the animal, without their mother being there to hold them.”
