Lamp Lighters In keeping with the article by the previous rebbi (?) called "Lamp Lighters" that describes what a Chassid is - it was particularly poignant to hear Dr. Block, in my eyes the quintessential Lamp Lighter, retell this story about his Rebbi! Reply

My job description What a wonderful explanation the Rebbe gave about what his "job" was. Everything is so plausible, you are able to see the current of electricity right in front of your eyes, when it starts at Niagarafall, how it is going its way through the wires to its destined place, and we have only to switch the light on...
Without doing that, there is darkness.
We only have to switch G-ds light on, as we put the light on for a lamp.
And He, the Rebbe, tells, where the switch is. Here, the truth is so simple. I am impressed. Reply
