Thank you, Mark Solomon when i heard this story, it lifted by heart immeasurably; ... and reminded me of joseph's 'coat of many colours'. Did Joseph express his Yiddishkeit uniquely to merit the famous coat?

Fascinating. What a gem! Reply

The Rebbe's chidush I recently heard a beautiful shiur concerning an insight of the Rebbe on the Berdichever's parable. Why is the parable about a suit of clothes? Would it not make more sense to make the parable about a beautiful building? What is the connection between a suit and the Third Beis HaMikdash? The Rebbe answered, that a building can accomodate any number of people; a custom-tailored suit only fits one person, and it fits him naturally. When we each express our Yiddishkeit in the most natural way, then we will be worthy to receive the Third Beis HaMikdash. Reply
