Purim Alegre I was born in 1973, and I find myself in quite a Galut today, the Fast of Esther. I ordered a Megillah just for the ocasion. After hearing the Rebbe's words on the Megillat Esther and the analogy of Achashverosh and taking our G-d given talents to the limit, I feel inspired. I seem to have a knack for finding Jews in the most unlikely of places, and reminding them and others that they are Jewish and G-d is our G-d! Purim Alegre to everyone, and thank G-d for the Rebbe and this timely message. Reply

chaim potok Yes. It is Chaim Potok. It was his second fabrengen by the rebbe, and he was planing on writing about chassidim in a negetive light. It is very probable that this changed that plan. If you listen to the full fabrengen, you will hear the transalator saying how there were many reporters and writers there then, probably as a result of the previous year's fabrengen which the rebbe spoke about 11 nissan.

very inspiring I hadn't listen to a dvar torah since a long time ago. I' m glad that was today with the Rebbe. The white and blue tapestry of Achashverosh over it's 127 countries is exactly the color of the Israeli flag. Now instead of haman we have hamas trying to get rid of us. My deepest sympathy to the Fogel family Reply

Chaim Potok Did I see Chaim Potok there amidst the crowd? Sitting at the Rebbe's table on the Rebbe's left? If that WAS him, that would have been very interesting, as the Rebbe was speaking about "utilizing one's potential to the max", including one who has talents writing....

Just an observation... Reply

Please publish more full size farbrengens! It benefits us so much to connect to the teachings of the Rebbe in a much deeper way! To feel like you are right there with the Rebbe! Reply

Sing & Cry I sing out of joy at hearing these words of inspiration that still inspire and excite.

I cry for the generation that did not experience this first hand. For how are they to understand the profound feelings of love, motivation and joy that the Rebbe elicited from us at these Farbrengens. Reply

Thanks to Chabad and the donors Absolutely inspiring levels of insight and knowledge which touch the heart and soul, dear Rebbe. Reply

Thank you for a life changing experience I envy Chassidim who were able to attend these farbrengens with the Rebbe. Reply

It appears that there is no difference between one person and another, I was aware that the philosophy of Charles Wellsely was, "Do what you can for whom you can", and this evening The Rebbe said the same thing but only in beautiful litvishn Yiddish.
Very very inspiring!!!! Reply

GREAT It was very GREAT. I followed the farbrengen from the beginning until its end. We need more of such one hour farbrengens with the Rebbe, especially for those like myself who didn't merit to know the Rebbe because we were too young or not yet-born.

Thank you. It was inspiring. Reply
