The topics in this week’s 408th episode of the highly acclaimed MyLife: Chassidus Applied series, with Rabbi Simon Jacobson, will include:
– Chassidus Applied to Post-Gimmel Tammuz
-How should we describe this day?
– How do we connect to the Rebbe today?
– Is it correct to say that one of the central themes in the Rebbe’s teachings was not resting on one’s laurels?
– Is Techiyas Ha’Maysim only in the hands of G-d, or can scientists figure out a way to regenerate DNA and bring people back to life?
– Can you give a short synopsis and explain the significance of the V’atah Tetzaveh maamar, the last one the Rebbe edited and distributed?
– Chassidus Applied to Chukas
– What do we learn from this chapter?
– What is the significance of a chuka and why is it engraved in us?
– Why was Moshe not supposed to hit the rock when the first time he was told to do just that?
– What should be our reaction and attitude to the reversal of Roe v. Wade?
– Why are secular studies not taught in our Yeshivos as it is taught in other schools?
– Chassidus question: If the tzimtzum is also part of Hashems “essential abilities” why do we seem to only praise the enlivening G-dly life force in a rock and not it’s body that resulted from the tzimtzum? Aren’t both aspects pure G-dliness?

Please Rabbi. Respectfully disagree with your “balanced” thought. The Rebbe, Reb Moshe Feinstein, etc. etc. expressed that abortion is murder (yes with notable exceptions such as ectopic pregnancies…). Is Roe V Wade’s overturn a complete victory for the life of the child? No, you’re right that it’s not, but we are headed in the right direction. And that ought to be celebrated. And although the US constitution doesn’t follow halacha, the Rebbe said clearly (audio clip of the Rebbe going around last week) that abortion is violating a sheva mitzvas bnei noach, thus we ought to celebrate when the US… Read more »
