Jewish History

With the approach of the German army during World War I, R. Sholom DovBer and his family left Lubavitch, located in modern-day Russia near the border of Belarus, for the city of Rostov. Lubavitch was the seat of the Chabad movement for 102 years, starting when R. DovBer, second Chabad Rebbe, settled there in 1813.

Daily Thought

Shall the judge of all the earth not do justice? (Genesis 18:25.)

There are those who are angry with G‑d for all the horrors and suffering they have seen. They say the deal is up. He has broken His covenant.

It is not for us to argue. Their voice must be heard. Perhaps G‑d will listen.

Response of Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneerson shortly after the Holocaust, reported in Kfar Chabad Magazine, volume 496.
