“Levi Yitzchak”
20 Menachem Av, 5749 · August 21, 1989
Disc 52, Program 206

Event Date: 20 Av 5749 - August 21, 1989

An address to the campers of Gan Israel New York, on the Yahrzeit of the Rebbe’s father, Rabbi Levi Yitzchak Schneerson:

The primary purpose of my father’s self-sacrifice was the education of Jewish children under communist oppression. My revered father’s name was “Levi Yitzchak.” “Levi” means “attached,” as in the verse, “Now my husband will be attached to me.” This represents every Jew's relationship with G-d, for G-d attaches Himself to the Jew when he acts as he should. And this enables him to live happily, as alluded by the name “Yitzchak - Laughter.”

As campers of Gan Israel, you have the opportunity and responsibility to bring G-d into your own lives and to the world around you. This brings G-d the greatest pleasure, and will bring true, lasting happiness to you, your family and all your friends.
