An Email Today...

Sends me a link to some blah blah blah article....
then writes:
helpful but still doesn't answer the question how this could happen to shluchim of the rebbe. it's like mored b'malchus and shouldn't be allowed to happen. it's so demoralizing. how far does the Eyerbershter think He can push us before we lose it? Ch, V'sh.

My response:
Waiting for G-d Himself to enlighten me....

a.'s reply:
please share with the class when He does.

A Neshomo...

.... comes down, wears and tears for 70 80 years -
JUST to do a favour for another!!!

Favor - something done or granted out of goodwill, rather than from justice.
Is there a time to give up?

Israeli Diplomat Yehuda Avner....

('Eating Kosher' experience)

They were all chomping on succulent roast pheasant, roast potatoes, and garnished beans.

I, alone, was not indulging. My vegetarian dish tarried, perhaps because the engraved place card that bore my name had been misspelled. It read "Yeduha...?"
Gen. George S. Brown, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was sitting two chairs to my right and Barbara Walters to my left. He caught sight of my still empty plate and craning his neck to mark my place card, boomed, "Yeduha, not eating with us tonight?" With that, a butler stepped forward and placed before me a fiesta of color consisting of:
A base of lettuce as thick as the Tanach,
Topped by a mountain of diced fruits,
Capped by a blob of cottage cheese,
And crowned by a scoop of whipped cream.
The whole thingamajig stood about a foot high.
In contrast to everybody else's drab roast pheasant, it glittered and sparkled like a firework!
"Wow!" chimed Barbara Walters at the top of her voice, drawing everybody's attention to my extravaganza. President Ford half-rose to note it. He whispered something into Yitzhak Rabin's ear, and Rabin whispered something back into his. Instantly, the president rose to his full height, held his glass high, and exuberantly called out to me, "Happy
birthday, young fella." Whereupon, the entire Lincoln Room stood up and began chorusing in fullthroated gusto, "Happy birthday dear Yeduha." And as they sang, their glasses aloft, I slunk sheepishly into my chair, mortified.
Back at Blair House where we were lodging, I asked Rabin why on earth he had told the president it was my birthday. He shot back, part in jest, part in earnest: "What else should I have told him — the truth? And tomorrow there would be a headline that you ate kosher and I didn't. And then the religious parties would bolt the coalition.
Am I crazy?"

And she read his Mitzva Notes.....

......@ his levaya.

The mitzvos were written on diamond shaped paper.
"Because each mitzvah is like a diamond." She said.
They have a treasure box at school.

And 5 year old Adam's Mitzvos.....
....accompanied him....

And Adam left us treasures.

Later, Chassidim said:
"True. But to appreciate the value of Tefillin as Rabbi Yaakov Mordechai did, one must first sleep on a bench for thirty years…"

Making G-d's Will, your will.

To accept.
And to be happy.
To FULLY accept and do be TOTALLY happy with what the Aibershter choses for you.
HE, in is Infinite Wisdom decided so.
It is good.
Be at peace with it.

Chalom Chalamti....
We lost her.
Totally lost her. Gone.
I accepted it, as HIS Will.

Then she was found.

I woke up. But the lesson remained.

(Akaidas Yitzchok-
Avrohom fully accepted G-d's Will and made it his own!
Only then he was told, he didn't have to sacrifice his son.)

Kabolos OL

Every level needs to be elevated.

How does a 'medaber' (the highest level) get elevated?
When a PERSON puts his OWN INTELLECT (which defines him as a person) aside, and does what Hashem wants ONLY because HE said so - THAT is Kabolos Ol.
That is the way he elevates himself.

Kabolos ol - is the foundation.
A person is compared to a tree.
The roots of a tree is the foundation of the tree.
