This volume contains a free translation of Sichos delivered by the Lubavitcher Rebbe Shlita in the Farbrengens held from Tishrei-Kislev, 5743, with excerpts from every Farbrengen held during that period. It is the first volume of 5743, and is the fifteenth volume published by Sichos In English.

The translations are structured to appeal to an English speaking reader who is somewhat familiar with the teachings of Chassidus. The Sichos are not adapted or altered in context, but are presented, with slight changes, in the same form and thought style in which they were originally said. Great effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the translations; however, they carry no official authority. As in all translations, the possibility of inadvertent error exists.

A major theme running through the Sichos delivered in this period is that this year is the one hundredth anniversary of the Rebbe Maharash’s yartzeit. The Rebbe explained how the Rebbe Maharash’s famous dictum, “Lechatchilah Ariber,” applies to every aspect of a Jew’s service to G‑d, in all circumstances.
