    Where Will You Be Next Shabbos?

    From the COLlive Inbox: A Lubavitcher writes to his fellow Chassidim ahead of the 25th Gimmel Tammuz, "We can talk and say we miss the Rebbe, and at the same time rest comfortably in the Catskills on shabbos Gimmel Tammuz..." Full Story

    Wow! So powerful! I will BeZ”H make a Farbrengen for Gimmel Tammuz, and make sure that even before that, Moshiach is revealed to us, and we will actually be reunited with our Rebbe!

    Who said the Rebbe would rather we be 1 in a thousand at the ohel and not 1 in ten farbrenging with our families and communities??

    That's not what he said.

    He said by the ohel or to make a farbrengen

    The point was and is that we should all do something on Gimmel Tammuz. Whatever it is.

    Wow!

    The intention is not specifically about shabbos at all. The title was written by COL.

    Thank you for the article and for bringing an awareness ! To number 4: It seems you have missed the point . It’s not just about going to the ohel as a “check it off your checklist “ kind of thing and then go on from there to your vacation destination. The writer was expressing that there is lacking the proper MINDSET that every chassid should be feeling about Gimmel Tammuz – an “insider mindset “ – that being a Chossid of the Rebbe is my identity ….. And because of this I’m not just looking to be “yotze” with… Read more »

    Shabbos at the Ohel

    Shabbos at the Ohel

    Because the Rebbe was in 770. Today we must go out of our hagbolos to connect. If it means going to the Ohel for Shabbos, so be it.

    “Reb Avrohom, azoi is tzu shver, m’darf zehn arupbrengen dem rebbe’n duh lematah” (“Reb Avrohom, this way is just too difficult, we must see to bring the Rebbe back down here…”) –The Rebbe to Reb Avrohom Pariz.

    I don’t think the rebbe said specifically to NOT GO on shabbos, the rebbe only said TO GO on Friday, which everyone going for shabbos will obviously be doing anyway.

    Honestly being in camp for Gimmel Tammuz is most probebly the best place for a child to be on ג’ תמוז. As a Shliach, I can truthfully say that the base for my Hiskashrus to the Rebbe was given to me in camp. In camp they can do a proper Hachono, write a pan erev shabbos and have a Farbreingen in camp for them is better than them hanging around in Crown Heights without a program that will give them the opportunity to connect to this holy and special day. ונזכה זעהן זיך מיט’ן רבי’ן דאָ למטה אין אַ גוף… Read more »

    The leaders in my community all go to the Ohel on Gimmel Tammuz. I understand why they want to be there, but they abandon their anash when we need them the most. Not everyone can go to the Ohel for Gimmel Tammuz. I’m all for making a farbrengen or special event on Gimmel Tammuz in our community. We usually do, but without our leaders. A week or two later, there is a big community event commemorating Gimmel Tammuz. Fine. But we can do that any time after Gimmel Tammuz.

    “Camps are starting next week. The Rebbe’s yahrtzeit is just a few days later”
    Just want to note, CGI Detroit is starting like every year after Gimmel Tammuz.

    It’s probably better for is to be in the atmosphere of camp, with the chassidishe staff etc and hachonos rather than hanging around

    Amazing words!

    And all start Yaakov holach ledarko…after Tishrei
    Then why shouldn’t camps start after Gimel Tamuz????
    It’s only basic minimum kovad for our Rebbe….!!!

    It is a ridiculous to make such assumptions that it would be bekovodik for the rebbe that camps should be delayed so that all kids can go gimmel tammuz to the ohel. I find that notion totally absurd. The rebbe does not want children roaming the streets for 2 weeks, so that they can go to the ohel. Every day that a kid is in camp is a day that he lives in a chasidic environment. And when gimmel tammuz falls out during camp season, that is the best opportunity to educate our children on the meaning of gimmel tammuz… Read more »
