Better Than a Vacation

Most of us see the summer months as an opportunity to relax with time off from work or school. Not so the Previous Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneerson. In fact, far from relaxing, he launched a special program to take advantage of the vacation.
Merkos Shlichut, Lubavitcher Rebbe
Better Than a Vacation
Disc 168, Program 670

Event Date: 20 Av 5711 - August 22, 1951

Most of us see the summer months as an opportunity to relax with time off from work or school. Not so the Previous Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneerson. In fact, far from relaxing, he launched a special program to take advantage of the vacation.

In this talk, the Rebbe emphasizes the immense value of Merkos Shlichus, what’s now famously known as the Roving Rabbis program. As so many stories attest to, the seemingly small impact that a couple of students can have on a community--or an isolated Jew--can go a very long way.
