Maamar Ve'atah Tetzaveh, Part 1: Chassidic Discourse on Nurturing Faith

V’atah Tetzaveh is the last maamar the Rebbe edited and personally distributed to chassidim. The discourse explains how the Jewish leader assists the Jew in strengthening, nurturing and internalizing the soul’s essential faith.

Maamar Ve'atah Tzaveh, Part 1 Thank you Rabbi Gordon for your teachings, today I understand a lot better who the Rebbe, blessed be his memory, was. I never understood before. I thought that he was a Messiah to you Chasidim. Now I see what he means to you all, he is or was like your great leader, or King. He most have been a great man. B"H. I have not been a part of the Jewish people the way I wanted to be because I come from the Sephardic people who lost the paternity because of the Spanish Inquisition. Unfortunately. But when Hashem, blessed be He, revealed to me who I was, i vowed that I would never turn back, instead, with the help of Hashem, I will continue to strive in my soul to return to my people, in my spirit and all being, and no one, except Hashem, will take this from me. Thank you for your teachings, I really appreciate it very much. And as you say that every Jew/Jewess is a "believer," Hashem, blessed be He, only knows my faith is true. Until we are reunited in Him, I shall wait in faith. Reply

Wonderful story, and background! I'm also the first in my family to return to judaism after 500 years, and yes, we also come from those persecuted in Spain, and Portugal but nowdays I'm the most happy person alive to be discovering my true roots, and the depths of the Torah! I learn with rabbi Gordon everyday, B'H for his life, dedicated to Torah and Mitzvot, and thank you for sharing your story with us.. very inspiring! Reply

RABBI GORDON'S EXQUISITE TRIBUTE TO THE REBBE They say that when the student is ready the teacher will appear. Ah, Yes!
No less than in cyberspace was I blessed by HASHEM who sent your beautiful godly soul to me as a testament that my intense holy path was real.
On the lighter side, as Jackie Mason selectively says, "You're SUCH a WONDERFUL PERSON!"
May you be blessed this Passover by a divine release to a freedom that only a chosen man as yourself is destined to receive. Reply
