In 2007, Rabbi Levi Garelik was rushed to the hospital after suffering a sudden and sever stroke in middle of a meeting in Crown Heights.
“Though I was unable to communicate, In my mind, I committed to the Rebbe, that if, with Hashem’s help, I walk out of the hospital, I would double the dedication to the Rebbe’s work of spreading Torah and Chassidus,” And thus, SichosAcademy.org was created.
The website features a treasure of video lectures in English he regularly gives based on the Rebbe’s teachings, covering the weekly Torah portion, Jewish holidays and Rambam’s Mishne Torah, Alter Rebbe’s Shulchon Oruch and more.
The goal is that everyone –from the Bnei Brak maggid shiur to the YU professor, from an older Chossid to young businessman to a young 12 year old boy or girl– should have the Likutei Sichos available to them, in their original form. Every class includes a curriculum with all the sources.
Another revolutionary component of Sichosacademy.org is the answers to FAQs in Halacha and Minhagei Chabad on the daily cycle (from waking up to the nightly Shma Yisroel), Jewish holidays, lifecycle events (from birth through marriage, family purity and wedding anniversaries to burial and mourning), and even Jewish history.
Have you ever had a question that you did not think was complex enough to call your Rabbi over? Did you ever want a fast and easy answer right at your fingertips? Did you ever need a Halachic answer in the middle of the night or while on a flight?
In response to these needs, Rabbi Garelik been uploading ‘frequently asked questions’ he has received in the last 28 years and his Halachic response to them. There are already over 2000 items and if the specific topic in question is not there, a member of the website can submit a question and receive an answer in a reasonable amount of time.
