Serving His People On High: 10 Shevat, 5747 · February 9, 1987

An address on the Yahrzeit of Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak of Lubavitch: Today we commemorate the passing of the leader of our generation. How, then, can we call this “a day of merit”? Everything that occurs in G-d’s world contains an element of good, it only depends on the individual to contemplate deeply enough to find it.

An address on the Yahrzeit of Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak of Lubavitch:

Today we commemorate the passing of the leader of our generation. How, then, can we call this “a day of merit”?

Everything that occurs in G-d’s world contains an element of good, it only depends on the individual to contemplate deeply enough to find it.

Maimonides states that the entire concept of mourning relates to Teshuva, Return to G-d. Teshuva is, in fact, the essence and epitome of good — so-much-so that it can heal a spiritual deficiency, and even “transform” past transgressions into merits...

How much more so on the Yahrzeit of the Rebbe, of whom it is certain — as the Talmud states concerning Moses: “Even now he stands and serves On High.” Even after he has ascended On High he evokes mercy and imparts blessings and success to his flock here, below. Thus, it is most clear that today especially, is a day of extraordinary, intense blessing, with power to transform the entire world.
