Honey cake... a sweetness a husband brings home to his bride The Torah teachings... Chumash... each day a portion of sweet cake the man of the house brings into his house to feed his house... to honor... to remember to remember that someday we will be eating Lekach in G_d's house with G_d our Father and King.

True sweetness... comes from the knowing of the Torah... the emphasis is on the man who is G_d's house... he is to bring G_d in so G_d can bring us home... just as the sweet Lekach of the Torah teaches

Response to Rabbi Tzvi Freeman Ah! Many thanks. I am working with my new study partner (we began two weeks ago and she is amazing!) and trying to learn, but a feminist from as far back as the days of "Women's Liberation" and the Equal Rights Ammendment, I am still trying to feel my way along on my travels to return home.

Re: Women In general, there would be a separate line for women. For the honey-cake line, however, far fewer women came, since the cake was meant for the entire family and so the man would go and receive for his family. There was a concerted effort to give the Rebbe less work on such a day. Reply

La Shana Tova B"H By G-d's grace (isn't everything?), I returned to Cincinnati to Chabad of Southern Ohio for the holidays. My soul is recharged! After years of seeking what could never touch the Jewish neshama, 12 steps saved my life, but Chabad (baruch HaShem) continues to save my soul. I am forever grateful. -Richard Wolfson, Portsmouth, Ohio Reply

women? How come you don't show the Rebbe giving Lekach to the women? I find that it was part of the uniqueness of the Rebbe, that women were always included in anything he distributed , be it dollars, Tanyas, Kuntresim or Lekach. Reply

Lekach Thank you for the beautiful video of Lekach from the Rebbe. It brought back precious memories of receiving Lekach from the Rebbe's holy hand. I can almost feel its spongy texture and smell its sweet aroma. Most of all though, I can recall the Rebbe's beautiful smile and warm wishes. With prayers for the Geula Now and a Gmar Chasima Tova.

Yom Tov @ Chabad B"H
I live in rural southern Ohio, just outside of Yemminsvelt, but I was, by HaShem's blessing, able to spend the Holidays by Chabad in Cincinnati. I felt as if brought home from golus! How warm and loving..and I didn't need a ticket, only to bring myself. Chabad has been a blessing for me throughout my life. G-d blesses us all with you and your outreach. Thank you and Baruch HaShem! Reply

The Rebbe's inspiration .... As I watch these and other clips of the Rebbe at 770, I am inspired to subdue my animal soul and seek to behave in decent and kinder ways...Chabad and my relationship with other dear followers of the Rebbe has changed my life and I suspect will continue to until Moshiach comes. Baruch Hashem! Reply
