One of the nicest things I have seen on this website. And what a dugma I we have in our Rebbe, who excelled in both the klal and the prat areas–and taught us by example to do the same.

Not sure what the writer is saying , as if the klal guy doesn’t do the small thing as we’ll ?? You don’t become a klal guy before you were a “prat guy”

What's a "prat guy"?

My kids are on Shlichus. They NEVER put anything on COLlive, because they don’t feel it’s necessary. True, they don’t make Gala dinners or have 450 people at an event. They are luck if they get 45. But they ARE making a difference & they are respected (& known) in the entire country, not just by Jews either. Everyone knows “the Rabbi”. We are all on Shlichus. It’s our job to be a dugma chaya & represent the Rebbe in Chabad no matter what we do or where. In the workplace is a good start. My husband works amongst Jews… Read more »

Dear comment 7,

Ie- wealthy choose classes for their kids, Get into seminaries and get a basic hi how are you when passed by or enter a building

My daughter married into a klal family. Overall in the public eye they are an amazing family. Together the schools, mikvahs, parades, events, dinners various members have created. Yet…. When my daughter had an emergency and was sent into the hospital erev Tom tov they were no where to be found. I live a few states away and couldn’t get there in time but these famous Shluchim lived right there. And this scenario has happened more than once. They refuse her help but won’t give theirs either. She only counts when it wouldn’t look appropriate for her to not be… Read more »

I’m sure for every big even the klal guy does there are hundreds of small good deeds no one knows about. Please a little trust in humans….

The principal where I live is great. But I wish he would care about my son. This is exactly how it is! I’m no big shot, not rich but my son deserves the care and concern like the wealthy..

Everybody knows that the small things we do quietly for others (and ourselves)are the most important and challenging. We don’t have to denigrate the folks doing the big things to make this point. Sounds like an inferiority complex.

You don’t get to do big events for 450 people before you started with 4 or 5 people. Don’t knock success it’s just the big events make it to the papers doesn’t mean these people don’t do the small meaningful every day things.

Thanks for this article!

This really got me thinking… Iy”h this will help me realize it’s not just about the “big screen” and doing the “major things”, but also in every little thing I encounter in life there is so much more we can do to change people’s lives! Thanks! Please right more articles!
