Yahrtzeit of the Beis Aharon

Today (Sivan 17) is the Beis Aharon's yahrtzeit. He was the grandson of Rebbe Aharon HaGadol of Karlin.

This morning before Ashrei, while the oilam was putting on Rabeinu Tam's, the Rebbe repeated what he often says from the Beis Aharon: A Yid is supposed to be b'simcha every day. I'm not referring to the madreiga of simcha. I am talking about basic joy. Saying the berachah of שלא עשני גוי, that Hashem did not make me a non-Jew, should generate intense, profound joy. If one truly thought about what it means to be a Jew and all of its implications, he would surely be dancing in the streets."
