The Importance of Learning Chassidus
As chassidim, the mainstay of our lives is the constant study of Chassidus. Throughout the generations our Rabbeim continuously urged their chassidim of the importance of illuminating their everyday lives with the holy divrei elokim chayim of Chassidus.

What Can We do to Bring Moshiach?
It is clear to Chassidim that our time period is unique. The Rebbe expressed unequivocally many times that the avodah that Hashem has tasked us with - to bring Moshiach - has been completed. Therefore Moshiach is ready to come. If so why hasn't Moshiach arrived? Is there something else we must do in order to hasten his coming?

Moshiach in the News
By the end of the 1980s drastic changes were coming about in the world. One after another, events that seemed completely unrealistic in the recent past suddenly became part of the constantly changing present. The Rebbe maintained that these amazing events were not by chance, rather that they are signs of a new era dawning upon the world and that we are seeing a preview of the effect of Moshiach.

Conquering Australia
In 5727, the first group of Talmidim Hashluchim to Australia was sent to support and establish the yeshiva there. The Rebbe invested a great deal of energy and interest in the group, and they even merited to have a sicha said for them in yechidus.

Towers of Light - Public Menorah Lightings
From the time Chazal instituted the mitzvah of kindling the Menorah, the objective has been to publicize the nes of Chanukah to the outside, illuminating the world around us. The Menorah is expected to be placed in the open - al pesach beiso mi'bachutz. Chassidus explains that the light of the Chanukah Menorah is even stronger than that of the Beis Hamikdash, possessing the unique power to overcome and ultimately transform the darkness of galus with Hashem’s infinite light. But it would take more than two thousand years for this goal to be truly realized, when the Rebbe’s mivtza Chanukah actually brought the light of the Menorah to the public domain.

A Special Anniversary Gift
Yud-Daled Kislev, the wedding anniversary of the Rebbe and Rebbetzin, was often marked by Chassidim in a special fashion. Typically, Chassidim would celebrate by making hachlatos to give the Rebbe nachas. However, major milestone years warranted something unique and memorable. Thus, for the fiftieth anniversary (5739), N’shei U’bnos Chabad commissioned a sefer Torah to be written in honor of the Rebbe and Rebbetzin. In 5741, the Sefer Torah was finally completed. Consequently, the week of Yud-Daled Kislev was particularly joyous and eventful. Presented here is an account of the major highlights of that week. From this month's Derher.

The Complete Story of Rosh Chodesh Kislev
For Chassidim in Dor Hashvi’i, Rosh Chodesh Kislev is one of the most joyous days on the calendar. The distress of Shemini Atzeres 5738, and the double-fold simcha of Rosh Chodesh Kislev, are memories that are etched into the hearts of every Chossid that experienced them. This day has since been established as a full-fledged Yom Tov, replete with a seudas hoda’a and farbrengens late into the night. The full sequence of events would be able to fill an entire book; here we have chosen to focus primarily on the events of Simchas Torah, Rosh Chodesh Kislev, Yud-Tes Kislev, and Zos Chanukah.

This was coming off the heels of the launch of a new mivtza, “Mivtza Neshek,” one month prior on 25 Elul 5734. Collected from various yomanim of bochurim who were in 770 at the time.

Torah Achas - How All of Torah is Essentially One
Torah is extremely diverse. Within every facet of Torah, there are four general ways to explain the concepts at hand: “P’shat,” “remez,” “drush,” and “sod”. We are also told that there are“shivim panim laTorah,” seventy angles of how to understand each concept in Torah. But at the very base of it all, Torah is really all one. The Rebbe explains that the reason Torah is essentially one, even though it seems so diverse and multi-faceted, is because the Torah comes from Hashem—who is the ultimate “One".

America's Matan Torah - Chof Ches Sivan

It marks the beginning of a new era and a new stage in hafatzas hamaayanos.
