This is the Anniversary of my Great Great Grandfather's passing. The N***s on this Jewish holiday forced him and his Jewish community into the forest nearby to dig their own grave. One of the Chabad-Lubavitch Rebbe's writes about him that he goes to the mikvah every day. Snow or summer in White Russia he would cut a hole in the iced over river to dunk in the mikvah every day. May Itche Nachum ben Aaron David (der Shmidt) Epstein's memory be for a blessing and his soul elevated.

Today 77 years ago was Kristallnacht. Which means the night of broken glass. People looted Jewish homes and shops. They broke the glass of the stores and attacked Jews for being born Jewish. They burnt down Synagogues where the firemen were told to ensure it burnt but prevent the fire from spreading to the buildings next door. To this we hope and pray never again!

"The true way is to know one's character is to truly recognizing one's good qualities and one's own deficiencies. And when one knows his deficiencies - he should correct them with actual work, and not satisfy himself merely with bemoaning them."

"In material matters one should always look at he whose situation is lower than one's own, and thank the good G-d for His kindness to him.

In spiritual matters one should always look at he who is higher than oneself, and plead with G-d to grant him the intelligence to learn from the other, and the ability and strength to rise higher."

The Rebbe’s Yizkor Speech - 6 Tishrei, 5743 · September 23, 1982

Tonight and Tomorrow is the holiday of Yom Kipper. The day when every jew gathers in synagogue to pray and talk to g-d, and ask for and promise a better year.

Tomorrow a prayer is said by the children who's ancestors have passed on. This talk given in 1982 speaks of the significance of this prayer and the people saying it. http://www.chabad.org/1635549

The unity of all Jews derives from the fact that every Jewish soul is “an actual part of G-d Above.” Therefore, “Jewish unity” is not limited to Jews who are alive, but includes those who have passed on, as well.

General information

Historical perspective The Chassidic movement is distinguished by its enthusiasm for meditative prayer, joyous service of the Creator, and intellectual mystical insight. The Chassidic movement was founded in 1734 by the Baal Shem Tov, "Master of the Good Name". The Chassidic movement transformed European Jewry into a spiritual oasis in a relatively short period of time. In fact, over 60% of European Jewry became adherents to Chassidic ideals by the beginning of the second World War.
