Torah Portion: Korach
Tomorrow, Saturday, July 9th, marks twenty two years since the passing of the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory.
I am in New York, joining many thousands of people from across the globe who will be visiting the Rebbe’s holy resting place for prayer on this auspicious day, as is customary when we commemorate the Yartzeit of a righteous person.
It would be an honor and pleasure to pray for you (and your family), as well, at the Rebbe’s “Ohel.” Please e-mail me your name and your mother’s name (preferably the Hebrew or Yiddish names), and those of anyone else you would like me to mention, I would be glad to have them in mind as well. If there’s a specific need you would like me to pray for, please mention it as well.
May all our prayers be fulfilled.
We’ve posted lots of information to help you learn more about the Rebbe’s devotion to G-d, discover how deeply he cared for each human being, and to glean insight into his teachings.
The Rebbe would frequently insist that even the loftiest of thoughts must be translated into actual deed.
Please join us on this special day in learning something additional, reciting an additional prayer, and giving some extra charity. Let us also try and apply some of the Rebbe’s care and selfless dedication to our own interaction with family, friends and total strangers. There can be no more fitting tribute to the Rebbe than millions of good deeds, mitzvot, performed on his day.
May G-d help us that in the merit of our collective acts of goodness we quickly greet our righteous Moshiach, at which time we will be reunited with our beloved Rebbe and all our loved ones.
