Tevet 5 is celebrated as a day of rejoicing in the
Chabad-Lubavitch community. On this date in 1987, U.S. Federal Court issued a decision
in favor of Agudas Chassidei Chabad ("Union of Chabad Chassidim") regarding the ownership
of the priceless library of the 6th Rebbe of Chabad-Lubavitch, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn. The
ruling was based on the idea that a Rebbe is not a private individual but a communal figure
synonymous with the body of Chassidim. The Lubavitcher Rebbe (Rabbi Yoseph Yitzchak's
son-in-law and successor) urged that the occasion be marked with time devoted to study
from Torah books ("sefarim") as well as the acquisition of new Torah books.
Even if all your complaints about your spouse are well-founded and valid —show her your love, nevertheless. Show her unconditional love.
It is said that all our exile is due to the sin of senseless, unwarranted hatred. When each one of us will start with unwarranted, unconditional love in our own domain, from there it will spread to all else that we do, and from there to the entire world, speedily in our days, Amen.
