the ARK As I listened I thought "I will NEVER understand this!" And then I understood. What an amazing teacher, for whom and to whom I am grateful. Reply

Holy Ark It is so profound, I thought it would be only a story about the Holy Ark. it shows one can't measure the depth of wisdom of our holy Rabbis, who teach the wisdom of the Holy One blessed be He! Reply

Making the Rebbe's work accessible. For those of us not fluent in Hebrew or Yiddish this is a wonderful and profound contribution in today's internet world, especially for those who learn by listening in their language of fluency. The emphasis of Sichos in English and in a way providing some of the power of the Rebbe's original delivery. I found this particular material both moving and profound. Reply

Holy Ark Very nice video. It brings many things into perspective. By teshuvah do you mean acknowledgement of our personal and collective guilt or us following Torah law as it is written instead of how it has been interpreted over the generations, or both? Or neither and I'm missing the point? :-) Reply
