Learning with Rabbi Warren Goldstein (English): Chief Rabbi of South Africa

Learn a beautiful teaching of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, in loving memory of Rabbi Jonathan Sacks. The source text is a sicha for parshat Vayechi from Likkutei Sichos vol.10—as adapted by Rabbi Sacks in his book “Torah Studies”. This sicha is being studied world-wide by Project Likkutei Sichos—an initiative to facilitate the learning of the sichos of the Rebbe.

Thank you, Rabbi Goldstein. Rabbi Sacks of Blessed Memory reminded us that there is a distinction between optimism and hope. He elevated hope beyond mere optimism: the hopeful among us must be proactive in our quest to fulfil hope, something that optimism alone does not require. Reply

I agree, this was very enjoyable to receive & contains good emotional intentions. I will have more confidence in speaking to members of the local Jewish community, once I have repaired my body from injury & worked out my spiritual goals for the year. Thank you for addressing in English, I appreciate very much! Reply
