Parshas Vayeishev - What Every Jew Looks Foward To

Awaiting and looking forward to the coming of an event or individual indicates a closeness and relationship with that event or individual. Yaakov’s awaiting the fulfillment of Yosef’s dream empowers every Jew over the course of the exile to await and anticipate the coming of Mashiach and his redemption of the Jews from exile.

How much more so does the above apply in the era of ikvesa diMeshicha, when Mashiach’s approaching footsteps can be heard, and we are on the threshold of the Redemption. This is the true time to “be awaiting and looking forward to its fulfillment,” for “I will await his coming every day.” The intent is not only that each day we await Mashiach’s coming that day, but that every day the expectation is constant, each and every hour, as we say three times a day in our weekday Shemoneh Esreh prayers, “We hope for Your deliverance the entire day.”

-Excerpt from Likkutei Sichos, Volume 35, P. 156ff

NEW!! The Basics of Chassidus, A Comprehensive Anthology of Chabad Thought.

We are proud to debut the first volume of the monumental and groundbreaking series, The Basics of Chassidus. As the first-ever of its kind, this Chassidic Encyclopedia in English makes Chassidus readily accessible to those who want to understand its brilliance and depth.

This comprehensive compilation is the painstaking work of Rabbi Nissan Dovid Dubov of Wimbledon, England, Shliach of the Rebbe and author of numerous books, and Rabbi Naftoli Hertz Pewzner, mashpia in Yeshivas Tomchei Temimim, Morristown, New Jersey. “The vision for this groundbreaking series is to take the Rebbe’s vision of making Chassidus accessible, one step further,” says Rabbi Pewzner. “If a beginner or veteran scholar wants to get a wholesome picture of a Chassidic concept, The Basics of Chassidus series is where they should look.”

This first 450-page volume of this series focuses on the basis of what Chassidus Chabad is about and is titled: Chabad: Its Origins, Principles, and Purpose. It covers the nature and theme of Chassidus and the specific contribution of Chassidus Chabad. Core ideas such as Achdus Hashem, avodas Hashem, Dirah BeTachtonim, hafatzas hamaayanos, and the Rebbe and chassid relationship are all thoroughly treated. A theme built throughout the volume is an appreciation of Chassidus’s “yechidah-effect” and its role in preparation of the Geulah.

Following volumes will cover the scope of Chassidus relating to the study of G‑dliness, the process of creation commonly known as seder hishtalshelus, the dynamics of Torah and mitzvos, and daily life illuminated by Chassidus. Themes like Shabbos, the holidays, life events, and more will also be featured. As Rabbi Dubov accurately encapsulates this series, “It projects a Moshiach mindset, a synergy of body and soul, the very essence of Chassidus.”

“With this groundbreaking Chassidic encyclopedia, we want to make the richness of Chassidic ideas easy to reach,” shares Rabbi Shmuly Avtzon, Director of Sichos in English. “With this series, a person can look up a Chassidic concept and get a full picture of an isolated idea and where it is discussed in Chassidus.” This series seeks to provide the pivotal “aha” moment of clarity which brings Chassidic ideas to life through providing understanding of the depth and breadth of an idea. The clearly structured ideas displayed provide an elaborate understanding of the topics discussed. Novices and scholars can further their study from the curated wisdom in these volumes forming a wholesome understanding of intricate ideas that create the tapestry of Chassidus.

📖 The first volume, Chabad: Its Origins, Principles, and Purpose, will be available for pre-order at our Annual Hey Teves Sale taking place from Tuesday, Gimmel Teves, December 7 until Sunday, Ches Teves, December 12.

Parshas Vayishlach - The Nasi Goes Out Through His Agents

The same approach also applies to the modern day mission of the Nasi. He cannot go to all of the distant places on his own, so he sends his emissaries who will be involved in spreading Torah and Yiddishkeit throughout the world — even the far away corners of the globe (the land of Seir). These agents carry the power of the sender and are like the sender. If so, through the vicariousness of the agent the sender really does reach each and every place. In the spiritual sense this is even more evident, for the soul is not limited by the physical restriction of space.

Parshas Vayeitze - What if I don't feel a sense of redemption?

One might claim that he feels no sense of redemption. Here we are, thousands of years after the ‘redemption’ of Ya’akov from Charan, and we still find ourselves in the dark, bitter throes of exile. Furthermore, an honest appraisal of one’s personal behavior will also reveal a personal exile which compounds the effect of the exile in general.

For this claim, we have the wondrous teaching from the above-mentioned portion. Not only is a Jew (even in exile) provided with all his necessities, including safety and security; not only does the recognition of this fact penetrate even the non-Jewish nations (as Lavan recognized) and keep them from interfering with a Jew; not only do they come to help the Jewish people in all their needs, even more so, G‑d sends him a revelation of angels from the Holy Land even when their presence is not totally necessary, simply because he deserves honorable treatment. These angels accordingly imbue him with a sense of redemption, even when he himself is still in exile. This applies to every Jew since we are all given the command and capability to follow in the footsteps of our Patriarchs — particularly Ya’akov.

Parshas Toldos - A Chain of Influence

As its name indicates, the portion of Toldos, offspring, deals with having children. The Previous Rebbe used to say that the spiritual meaning of the Divine commandment of “Be fruitful and multiply” is that a Jew must make another Jew; in other words, to bring Jews closer to Torah and mitzvos. Since the children in Toldos include Esav, whom the Talmud calls an “apostate Jew,” certainly, today when Jews who are removed from Torah are only “children who have been kidnapped” how much more so must we reach out to them. Just as the Torah says that Avraham “holid,” meaning not simply “gave birth to,” but also “caused [Yitzchok] to bring children,” we, too, must influence others to return to Torah and, in turn, encourage others to do likewise. This involvement with “offsprings” makes us “vessels” to receive the overpowering blessings of Yitzchok.

Parshas Chayei Sarah - Assurance for Success: There is a lesson in the story of Eliezer for all of us. When a Jew goes in the mission of G‑d to make the world a fit dwelling place for Him, he has the assurance and promise of Avraham that “the L‑rd will send his angel before you” and “with you” to ensure success for his mission. This assurance eradicates any worries about obstacles to one’s mission, for has he not been promised success?... All that a Jew needs do is be a “servant of the fathers” — to know that he is on the mission of the leader of our generation. Then, just as Eliezer (the ‘servant of Avraham’), was successful in his mission in all aspects, so too with us. Even when a Jew is sent to a place full of obstacles and opposition (similar to Aram Naharaim), there is no need to fear, for he is on G‑d’s mission, and He sends His angel before and with him. He can be sure that he will be successful in taking Rivkah out of Aram Naharaim — in taking all the ‘sparks of holiness’ from the place to which he has been sent. Success is assured, for the L‑rd is “G‑d of the heavens and G‑d of the earth,” master of the entire universe, and “none shall be lost from Him.” -Excerpt from a sichah delivered on Shabbos Parshas Chayei Sarah, 24th Day of MarCheshvan, 5742 (1981) 👉🏻 Click here to learn the full Sichah https://www.sie.org/templates/sie/article_cdo/aid/2553891/jewish/Shabbos-Parshas-Chayei-Sarah-24th-Day-of-MarCheshvan-5742-1981.htm 🔸 Connect with us!
