On the last Shabbos of our stay in Brooklyn, parshas Nosso, Sivan 14 (June 12) we had a history-making farbrengen: the longest Shabbos afternoon farbrengen on record. It lasted for almost six hours. The Rebbe was marvelous! In the early years, we would ha...
Yossi’s twelfth birthday was on Shabbos, the 14th of Sivan (June 12). Shmuel telephoned me from London with a unique request: could I please place a Tehillim on the Rebbe’s lectern on Shabbos? If I would be successful in my mission, Yossi would own a trea...
We again received the tremendous privilege and honor of an invitation to visit the Rebbetzin at her home on President Street. She asked that we also bring our grandchildren who were in New York with us. From experience we have learned that the children sh...

Mincha was to have taken place at 3:15 p.m. today. At two o’clock, the Rebbe sent a message that he would be five minutes late. The Rebbe came into mincha exactly five minutes late! Two lessons can be learned from this: 1. Always keep to your time. 2. If ...
I had the pleasure of meeting Dayan Michoel Fisher at 770. He is the head of the Beth Din of the Federation of Synagogues in England. He rhapsodized and enthused continuously to me about the Rebbe. He declared that every rabbi in Great Britain should come...
On isru chag (the day after yom tov), Sivan 8 (June 6), both Roselyn and Hindy complained of sore throats. They were feeling tired and rather poorly. It was therefore prudent and necessary to consult with a doctor. Hindy was told that the doctor was very ...
