Question
Guest
Question

How is it possible that the Rebbe’s Ohel (beyond essential to the experience of traveling to the Rebbe today) is not mentioned even once in the video?

Nice

Well done. Both sound so good together.
Liking the good old fashion melody – the modern stuff is just not the same.

Finally!!!!

Finally!!!!

Finally a Lubavitcher Chassid composes a niggun about the Rebbe and Chassidus, that our children can listen to and get inspired.

wow!!

To number 2: Answer

“The ohel” and “770” are just terms, it should just be referred to as going to the Rebbe, bc that’s what it really is. For some the ohel is where they feel the Rebbe’s presence more, for others 770 is where they feel the Rebbe’s presence more. The song mentions going to the Rebbe and for those that feel the Rebbe in the ohel more, that’s what it’s referring to. For those who feel the Rebbe’s presence more in 770 that’s what it is referring to. The point of the song is that a chosid gets chayus for the rest… Read more »

Ohel?
Guest
Ohel?

Shouldn’t the Ohel be part of the experience of visiting the… Rebbe???

Where is the ohel??
Guest
Where is the ohel??

Why is the ohel not mentioned even once in the video, isnt that the main part of traveling to the Rebbe today?

Ohel

Ohel

770 Is our home. It’s the Rebbe’s home. The ohel, as important as it is, and It is Extremely important – is still only a temporary place. It’s not home.

What an appropriate honor for Reb Eliyahu Zion Zatzal!!
Guest
What an appropriate honor for Reb Eliyahu Zion Zatzal!!

Eliyahu Zion the Matriarch of the Niasoffs has never missed a single Tishrei with the Rebbe with his Yibadlu- Lorech Yomim holy wife and over a minyan of children kah.
Being a lover of nigunim, he is certainly is singing along with us all, in this moving heartfelt professional production. One of the best Chabad has yet seen. This professional team can accomplish a lot….may this be the beginning of many more……over 5700 hits in one day!!!!

While I do agree that the Ohel is is a big part our life today (sadly), and perhaps it should have been part of the video. But for haven sake why does everything have become an issue. this is such a nice peace, enjoy the inspiration and let other be inspired.

Lets hope that with achdus hachassdim we will be zocha to not have to go to the Ohel this year and we will all spend tishrei in the beis hamikdosh hashlishi

It seems to me that this is a nostalgic film to depict what it was like for the chassidim of the old country to visit their Rebbe for Tishrei. In those cases they went to the local shul and simchas beis hashoavos and farbrengins, which even now-a-days take place in CH and 770. People can feel whatever they want about the Rebbe. The true presence of a Tzaddik is by his kever, we all know that. I don’t think anyone is throwing that under the bus. Tishrei is not about going to the Ohel, its about celebrating and farbrenging in… Read more »

Enough with the politics
Guest
Enough with the politics

With the new year upon us we need to focus on the positive and try to find what unifies us rather than what divides us.
The Rebbe unites us – hopefully.
This video was touching and powerful. It hits the spot.
Let’s accept it and appreciate it for what it is.
And for the naysayers out there or critics there are different forums out there. Help yourselves.

A Gut Gebentched Gezunte Yahr to all.

To 7, 8 and 11

7 and 8, see number 6.
To 11, 770 is also temporary, it’s beis rabeinu sheBEBOVEL when Moshiach comes we’ll have the beis hamikdosh. I think number 6 answered very well.

Benny, and Eli you guys out did yourselves Again!!!!!

seriously people?
Guest
seriously people?

Lubavitch is not the ohel! Should you go, is there something there, that’s for each to decide! But 770 is beis hamikdash in galus, that’s where you go to be “oleh regel” and that’s where shchina shines (all based on what Rebbe tells us in sichos)
So when you travel to spend Tishrei with Rebbe, it’s in the Rebbe’s daled amos, Rebbe’s shul, Rebbe’s home!
Lchaim friends! Gut yom tov!!!

thank you
Guest
thank you

so beautiful, definitely evokes emotions of tefillah and emunah

TO ALL OF THE ABOVE
Guest
TO ALL OF THE ABOVE

770 IS OUR HOME AND THE REBBES HOME. THE OHEL IS A VERY NICE PLACE,BUT PPL WHO GO TO YHE OHEL FOR SHABBOS AND YOM TOV IT MIGHT GIVE SOME VERY NICE INSPERATION BUT TO LIVE THER IS LIKE LIVING DEAD.its relly sad. the rebbe shlita also said in a sicha that the noshi hador [the rebbe] of our gen. is not irrelevant for him to be ther. SO WHAT I’M TRYING TO BRING OUT IS DONT WAST A SHABBOS IN THE OHEL, BECUS ” MOSHIACH IS ON HIS WAY” COME TO &&) THE REAL THING YECHI HAMELCH!!!!!!!

to put together such words in such a stirring manner and about such a pivotal zman in the chassidishe calender requires true hergesh chassidi. thank you rabbi sternberg for conveying this in such a heartfelt manner. i can picture a chossid ,bochur or yungerman,young and old with their heads on their hands in emootional contemplation as they try to transport themselves to makom shrtzon kulono nimtzoim shom. may you have much hatzlacha in conveying these values to our adolescent and next generation in all the capacities you so succesfully fill. kvt to all chassidim

Guest
To all the complainers about there being footage of 770 and not the ohel..

The song is about getting chayus for the coming year. Now, I’m gonna be very blunt: there is chayus in 770, the translation of chayus is life! In 770 you feel Rebbe alive and therefore you’ll draw life from there, in the ohel, I’m sorry to say and it kills me to say it, but you feel the Rebbe the opposite of alive… So how are you supposed to draw chayus from the ohel for the coming year??
