    Reading this brings back the memories. Sometimes I think, how bad things were then, but better than what we have now. Other times I think, at least the Rebbe is not in gashmiyusdiga pain.
    Either way, to #1. I “enjoyed” reading this, I remember MK and his dedication was noticable, but why is he the “only true… ” Lubavitch is PACKED with dedicated Chasidishe bochurim and yungerlayt.

    Sometimes we need to stop and just be sad for a few hours. There is a time for everything. Chof Zayin Adar is a time to reflect and yes be somber for a few hours.

    this words are completely not what the Rebbe want from us!!

    טוט אלץ וואס איהר קענט אראפברענגען משיח . . בשמחה ובטוב לבב

    this is the message from 27 Adar “כתית” – “ברוב שירה וזמרה”

    עצבות is a waste of time

    being sad isn’t going to bring you anywhere in life. you want to see the Rebbe do something about it, don’t waste a few hours in being sad.

    Dancing and Jumping in the name of geuloh and Moshiach without any truth and without any Pnimiyus and without any cheshboin Hanefesh between yourself and the oibershter and between yourself and the rebbe is the Easiest way to go… Vyehopeich Hayoim Haze Lesosoin Ulesimcho Bekoroiv Mamosh Mamosh.

    I disagree with alot of this… The Rebbe is more than a person in one place The connection to the Rebbe, in many ways, has nothing to do with seeing him, or anything physical The Rebbe’s physical life is beyond our understanding and grasp, and in many ways there is no point to think about it Our job is to work, and most importantly to carry out our work with simcha and unwavering bitochin Now, many lubavitchers can say they never saw the Rebbe physically and they never experienced any of the days prior to 1994, they know the Rebbe… Read more »

    The Rebbe's Legacy

    From day one (and even before), the Rebbe set out to get chasidus taught and printed. As the Rebbe said many times, the way to be mekoshur with him is by learning his Torah. Everything else is commentary.

    Thank you Mendy!!!

    I wasn’t there 27 Adar 5752 I was a little boy bu the videos I have seen of that day and the next days is chassidim dancing to the nigin ‘de rebbe is gezunt’. The point is that although the situation can bring עצבות never the less the rebbe and the obershter want you to be happy and one of the ways to bring your self to happiness is throw dancing. the alter rebbe brings in Tanya perek 26 that if you will be sad you will lose your war with the yetzer hara. I believe the words the rebbe… Read more »

    Disagree.

    Nice and a little heart wrenching to hear your thoughts adn feelings. But some of it especially the ending is inconsistent with what the Rebbe taught us the Rebbe really is and what5 thr Rebbe wants and needs us to do to bring the Hisgalus. Some comment said atzvus is a waste of time. It is. But that’s the least of the issues. I’m not saying repress your feelings. I respect them and appreciate a guy who’s real in how he feels. But atzvus is something that IF we feel we should channel correctly and better, just be done with… Read more »

    last week’s shiurim in tanya are very important for learning how to deal with atzvus in a positive, constructive way

    its Not About Atzvus.

    its Not About Atzvus.

    Atzvus doesn’t come from Kedusho, and therefore can not bring a person to Kedusho, Ma Se’ein Kein Merirus Comes from Kedusho and therefore brings a person to Kedusho. According to your philosophy: Why not to dance on Asoro Beteiveis Shivoh Osor Betamuz And Tishoh Beov?!… Will it not bring the geuloh sheleimo faster?!… Let Me Tel You Something: By people that Churbon Beis hamikdosh, Histalkus Tzadikim, 6,000,000, Chof Zayin Oder, And Gimel Tamuz Doesn’t R”L Mean Anything – SO THEY DONT NEED ANY GEULOH, BEACAUSE by THEM in THERE life NOTHING EVER HPENNED!!!… I have once met a person on… Read more »

    Thank you for reawakening the feelings most of else felt yhat day. Everyone is jumping on the word SAD as if you are a Rishon. All the author meant this is a day one should reflect on what it means to lose seeing the Rebbe b’gashmuis.

    Just pointing out, that Tisho Beov Leacharei Bias Hamoshiach Will be a Yom Tov, So therefore Leshitoscho Zol Men Yetzt Gein Tantzen oif Tishoh Beov???!!! When The Rebbe will come back Do Lemato Beguf Gashmi Kipshutoi Mamosh – Vyeihopeich Hayomim Hoeilu Lesosoin Ulesimcho – so then you will able to dance on these days but Not Now.
