Jewish History

Rebbetzin Freida was the daughter of the Alter Rebbe, R. Schneur Zalman of Liadi. She was especially dear to her illustrious father, and he would frequently deliver chassidic discourses specifically for her. In fact, when her brother R. DovBer, who later became the Mitteler Rebbe, wanted to hear Chassidut, he would sometimes ask her to make a request, whereupon he would hide and listen.

Rebbetzin Freida passed away a few months after her father, and was interred in Haditch, Ukraine, immediately adjacent to R. Schneur Zalman.

Daily Thought

In the Temple in Jerusalem was a seven-branched menorah.

That is us, the Jewish people.

Each of us is a flame. One flame burns softly. Another burns with a roar. Until seven branches are filled with millions of distinct, unique flames.

All are drawn upwards, all yearning to reunite with their Beloved above.

And that is the work of Aaron the Kohen, the priest of kindness and love:

That every soul should burn its own flame, and not a single one should remain dark or dim.
