Pesach Sheni with the Rebbe (Videos)

Video footage of the Rebbe’s unique perspective on the day whose motto is “It’s never too late.”

“The Second Passover teaches us that ‘It’s never too late.’ The holiday was given for those who were unable to offer the original Passover sacrifice in its proper time. They thought that it was too late, and yet they were told that there is a solution. So too, in any area of life, if there are things you should have done in the past but did not, it’s never too late to make them up now.”
The “Second Passover” sacrifice was offered as a makeup for the paschal sacrifice, for someone who was ritually impure or too far away from the Temple at the time of Passover. On the other hand, the commentaries explain that the Second Passover is also a celebration in its own right.
20 Nissan, 5748 · April 7, 1988
The lesson derived from Pesach Sheni is: “It is never too late.” Even if one was “impure,” or on “a distant path”—his situation is not “lost.”
