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 Sukkah, we are all one because in essence we are a single being.

But that which is outside our essence—that which makes us the individuals who we are—that is not yet one.

In the unity of the Etrog, Lulav, Hadasim and Aravot, we are all one as distinct individuals, complementing one another to make a single, harmonious whole.

But we remain apart at the core, united only superficially.

When the two mitzvot come together, then we are one in all ways: The oneness of our essence resonates throughout the harmony of our diversity.

And so it shall be in the entire creation, as a single symphony, soon, very soon.
