Farbrengen with the Rebbe - Tammuz 12, 5741 (1981): The Rebbe’s call to fix education

An hour-long excerpt from a televised gathering with the Rebbe’s in 1981. In this talk the Rebbe focuses on the topic of education and the urgent need for children to be raised with the knowledge of a Higher Being, an “eye that sees and ear that hears” everything they do.
The Case of the Missing Tape and the Rebbe’s Rediscovered ‘Farbrengen’, Never Too Young
Lubavitcher Rebbe, Farbrengen, Education, Crime & Criminal Justice, Tammuz 12-13

An hour-long excerpt from a 1981 satellite feed of a gathering with the Rebbe, of righteous memory, in honor of the 12th of Tammuz.

The 12th of Tammuz marks the anniversary of the release of Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak of Lubavitch, the Rebbe’s father-in-law and predecessor, from Soviet prison in 1927, where he was incarcerated for his activities in spreading Judaism in the Soviet Union.

This excerpt presents the third talk of the farbrengen, in which the Rebbe focuses on the topic of education. This talk picks us after previously relating the story of his predecessor’s first arrest at eleven years of age, where he shared a prison cell with a moaning calf whilst he reviewed Torah teachings from memory, thus demonstrating “the superiority of man over beast.”

The Rebbe draws lessons on the urgent need for children to be raised with the knowledge of a Higher Being, an “eye that sees and ear that hears” everything they do. He also cautions that a society that ignores its responsibility to educate its children about the existence of G‑d risks losing its bearings.

Child rearing! Only strict groups like the Hasidim,or Amish,and similar can have such control of the children they are rearing. The many facets of society are becoming this day pluralistic so to the point that the children are subject to the many voices out there that are for the most part destructive to the human heart and mind.Sin abounds in every venue of our way of life,and our children are not immune to it.Interesting footage here,listened to the whole speech or talk from the Rebbe. He is really no different from the many religious leaders of our world who are so disgusted with the immorality,and lack of faith, lack of teaching that consequences come to those who sin,steal and whatever. I admire every community like the Hasidim,not that they are perfect,but they try hard to fulfill righteous life and to keep their eyes focused on the the Creator! Who alone deserves all glory honor and praise! Reply

@ The Shema One is commanded to say the Shema twice a day, morning and evening. But in fact the sentence Shema Israel is said 4 times/day: 1st is in Shacharit before Pesukei de Zimra, and lastly the bed-time Shema when mostly just the 1st (or 1sr and 2nd) parts are said. Shema is not recited at Mincha. Reply

I have a reading comprehension problem due to a stroke. I would like to hear this in English so that my mind would retain the information. I tried to follow this and I remember times when I thought "that was good" but already I don't know why. I am typing this before the conclusion because I am going to turn it off. This is so disappointing to me. Reply

1981 (I was 3yrs old)...does anyone else remember the way it was (as is told by the Rebbe in this video)? Though more recently crime has been at an all time low, the insanity of the years I grew up in were tremendous. My sense of myself as evil was far greater in my youth, which of course is noted to be somewhat normal, but my evil drive was like in hyper-evil. Then, Gd spoke to me ("I AM punishing you") and not long after, the crime surge died. Reply

Feedback about the subtitles thaIt may be a good idea to leave the subtitle of time 12:12 on the screen for a bit longer. It took me three times to go back to read what it says. Reply

I like your illustrations of the stone and pebbles and the scratch. They are simple enough for a child to understand. My question on the Shema..is it still said today as a daily prayer? Reply
