Every individual’s health
needs to be tended to maximally
within the natural order.
However, one should place their faith
in the Healer of all
for whom the doctor here below
acts as a surrogate.

Marriage is not about educating
and changing one’s spouse,
it is about fostering a relationship
based on the respect
for your spouse’s outlook on life
and his or her personal opinions.

The connection between
an individual and his friend,
between husband and wife,
is not based on the physical body
of bones, flesh and veins.
Rather, it is based
on the characteristics of the soul,
the spirit that is the center
and essence of the person.
It is this that is the connection
between two individuals.
While the physical body can be separated from family,
the spirit of the person cannot
be separated from loved ones,
even via the body’s death.

Many have struggled to describe Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of righteous memory, the seventh leader of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement. A task so daunting due to the multifariousness of the Rebbe’s personality and achievements.

Rather than attempting to describe the Rebbe, this forum will share hitherto unknown tidbits of information about his life and teachings — information that was recorded in writing, audio and video.

Join us as we explore the Rebbe’s life and teachings. Manuscripts, letters, firsthand experiences and more.
