Tanya Shiur #30 (RBT)

(34:22 min. - 5.9 MB)

VIDEO: Yosis Alayich

For your viewing pleasure, here is a clip of the Rebbe, shlit"a, dancing at the recent Silverman-Twerski wedding in Milwaukee. Somehow, no matter how much physical pain and discomfort the Rebbe experiences, when it comes to hakafos on Simchas Torah or dancing mitzva tantz at a chasunah, he seems to forget it all and display supernatural energy and strength. May the Rebbe always have the ability to dance as he does in this video! (Click "READ MORE" to go to the video.)

Where the Sidewalk Ends

Is this the last time we have changed?
Whenever the city lays a sidewalk, the name of the city is imprinted in the new slabs of cement, along with the year in which they were poured. Between the Rebbe's house and the shul there are some new slabs that have recently replaced the old, crumbling ones, and hence, have been stamped "City of Milwaukee 2012". The rest of the sidewalk slabs each boast the year in which they were poured and set. Some read 2001, others 1997, and some go back to the 80's or before.

We are not concrete. People are meant to grow, to change, never to remain the same. But if we take a penetrating, honest look at ourselves, when was the last time we really changed? Five years? Ten years? Perhaps longer?

Pictures: Switzerland Wedding 5772

The Rebbe, shlit"a, returned last week from a two week stay in Switzerland. He went for the chasunah of his grandson (son of Rav Efraim from Chicago) and stayed on an extra week to rest a bit. Twelve years ago, the Rebbe composed his famous "Ilu Finu" nigun in the same mountains where he spent the last week. In any event, the chasunah was mamish something spectacular, as I heard from a number of those present. Thanks to Ely Weisz of Chicago who was there and sent me the above picture along with the following:
