David,
You always strike a cord in the Neshomah. Hashem has blessed you and you are sharing His blessings with us. Thank you!
P.S. Heard you in P.B. FL. and you were great. Do you write a weekly or monthly column? I would like to subscribe.

 Giant strides - the Rebbe's silent footsteps....
Guest
Giant strides - the Rebbe's silent footsteps....

The Rebbe’s greatness was most expressed in his notice and appreciation of a small child, a simple act of kindness, the whistling of a lively Chossid at a farbrengen, a mother’s happiness, a true spontaneous smile, two pennies dropped in a Tzedaka box, the light of a little girl’s Shabbos candle, the unwritten, unconventional, sincere prayer of “We want Moshiach Now!”
Dr. Nesenoff reminds us to “open our eyes”, (even through
the tears) to what a Chossid should “see”!
Thanks for “noticing” and defining the Rebbe’s message and legacy so beautifully – Yishar Kochecha!

Dr. Nessinoff good stuff. I traveled the world since I was 18 years old. Did lots of time out in the Southwest in the 50′. Never religious but New York Jewish. From than on it was difficult to be a “Jew” out of NYC or anywhere for that matter. I found the Chabad policy of welcome in many strange places in the world. Always welcoming, always friendly and comforting. My parents are buried at Old Montifiore with Rabbi Schneerson and it has become a shirine to his great work. Keep up the soft sell David, it’s really a great cause… Read more »

Beautiful essay, thank you so much! 🙂

Over the years I have found that often children are actually the best shluchim of all.

Can’t help remembering the sweet song “It’s gonna be the little kinderlakh….”

Keep up the good work. 🙂
