this is brilliant!!

this is brilliant!!

sometimes as chassidim we wait to see what inspires the ‘velt’ and then we react in the same way, running to buy a book that a ballabus would love and would teach him so much. This is upside down! the way it is supposed to be, where we, as chassidim of the rebbe, get inspired, and fall in love with the original, and then, to make it accessible to everyone ells we write books for the general public. this bochur hit the nail on the head, Yaasher Koach!

kol hakavod. the books that came out are great for mekuravim, those who didn’t get a chance to learn yet. a lubavitcher should really stick to the old fashion books – they’re allot better.

i think that the knew books written about the rebbe, by Rabbi Steinzaltz, Telushkin and Rabbi Miller, allow us to see and appreciate the seforim that we have, much more. anyone who read them knows what im talking about, and anyone who didnt could greatly benefit from reading them.

Rabbi Schapiro mentioned this video at the Florida Shabbaton this week. He thought it was a great point brought up by this bochur.

Why not read both?
Guest
Why not read both?

Of course the Rebbe’s Torah is mandatory reading. But why is it a contradiction to ALSO read these new biographies. They can inspire a person to learn even more and also motivate someone in avodas Hashem.

Give Rebbe. Pure Rebbe. No better way to give people Rebbe then thru the Rebbe’s Chassidus.

I don’t think this should have been done with any sense of comedy. The point is a beautiful one, as expressed in today’s (24 Sivan) Hayom Yom.
The real humor I find is that we actually believed a Lubavitch Bochur was able to read three, 500+ page English books!

This bocher is not intending that you should not read these books that came out now..
what he means is that everyone is making such a big deal of them. . As if till now we didn’t have this great wealth
may we be zocheh to torah chadosho miti titzeh bkorov

There is a saying:
When there’s a will, there’s a way.
If you want to read you will read.
It just depends if you like to read or not.
What is the big deal?
And what is comical about a avid reader who can read and it just so happens to be that it’s not string subject taught in chabad schools?

I hope that the spreading of this short video clip gives you great chius, in nigleh and in nistar…May the great oiros of the Rebbe’s Torah and ideology light your way in life.

this bochur is obviously very intelligent and is saying something very important that we should all take to heart. The only thing is that I dont think is that he should be the one making this statement, and certainly not in such a joking way. The books being marginalized here are impressive and insightful and I have spoke with many many unzerer chassidim in our schnuna, young and old who have told me they felt closer to the Rebbe after reading these books. The message is brilliant, yes, but the messenger should have been different and a different method of… Read more »
