Leaving Next Week: With A One Way Ticket To Iceland…

This past Tuesday I bumped into Rabbi Avi Feldman in 770. We started chatting and he mentioned that he is leaving next week to establish Chabad of Iceland. That’s when it hit me: how about I arrange for him and his wife to sit down with Rabbi Manis for some good old fashioned shlichus advice before they go….above is just a highlight more to come!

Audio version:

And by divine providence they happen to be running a Charidy campaign today…

We are excited to share that in one week from today, together with our daughters Chana and Batsheva, we will Be’ezras Hashem be moving to Reykjavik to establish Iceland’s very first Chabad house and Jewish Community Center! please click here to donate.

How Can Hashem Ever Really Forgive You?

After numerous individuals pointed out these paragraphs in the sicha below as strong indications that G-d isn’t at all affected by our mitzvos, I decided to finally sit down with Rabbi Friedman to learn them straight from the sefer.

The sicha can be found in Chelek Zayin page 23 and if you don’t have clear definitions of the terms The Rebbe is explaining you can really be thrown off and have a completely wrong impression. Be prepared to listen closely because this video highlight holds the key to understanding the Chabad Chassidus Revolution.

The clip is 17 1/2 minutes long.

Every Mitzvah Is A Favor To G-d, So To Speak…

I have been wanting to make this video clip for the longest time. Ever since I watched Jem’s fabulous video Marching Orders and heard the Rebbe say that every Mitzvah is a favor to G-d SO TO SPEAK I was confused. Doesn’t the phrase SO TO SPEAK completely undo the impact of it being a favor to G-d? And basically I was told time and time again that there is no real way to influence G-d. Which left me even more confused!

Just watch this clip and it will all make sense…

Modern Orthodox Yeshiva Students Blown Away After Hearing Chabad’s Philosophy For The First Time

Yesterday I came across a class we arranged in Israel a few years ago in Ramat Beit Shemesh at a modern orthodox yeshiva. As you can see in the video below I included some footage of the Yeshiva student’s eager anticipation of hearing Chassidus for the very first time. It was a marvelous evening. Enjoy!

The Rest Of The Story

the-rest-of-the-story

It was a cold, dark, rainy night in Del Mar, CA. In a horse stable-turned-synagogue, ten Chabad Shluchim and two highly acclaimed experts brainstormed together. The pitter-patter of rain that spattered the wood roof above was persistent, but didn’t dampen the intense conversation taking place below.

I know it sounds dramatic, right?

But as I look back at that fateful night almost exactly five years ago, it was a turning point for me and eventually gave birth to 11213.org as we know it.

Background Info:

In 2009 many Chabad Shluchim participated in a brand new venture called Chabad E-Myth. It was spearheaded by author Michael E. Gerber (for more info about him, google E-Myth). I joined Chabad E-Myth and worked closely with Michael Gerber on several occasions while working for JLI (Jewish Learning Institute).

The first question Mr. Gerber asked the Shluchim as a professional consultant was seemingly very basic: “Please tell me the story of Chabad as you would explain it someone who walks off the street into any one of your Chabad centers.” Much to his surprise, he received many different variations, each one quite different than the next.  He couldn’t understand the complete lack of clarity. He tried to approach the topic from various angles but was consistently met with confusion. He simply wanted to understand why the Shluchim were so driven and inspired to do the selfless work they committed their lives to accomplishing.

Mr. Gerber designated a group of shluchim to concisely write the story of Chabad, stressing the importance of this task and how essential it was to the overall growth of each individual Chabad House. Many shluchim questioned the importance of this work and even wondered if there was a unilateral story.

The shluchim who volunteered to take on his task were met with great challenges. For many months they went back and forth, but to no avail.  There was no clarity in sight.

As a Chabad E-Myth participant, I offered to arrange for a meeting for the shluchim with Michael Gerber and Rabbi Manis Friedman to receive guidance on navigating through what was turning into a very painful process. The meeting took place n February 2010.

What transpired left everyone around the table completely awed, and inspired with a clear understanding of Chabad’s radical approach.

The footage below is simply a clip from a much longer session, but I believe it captures “The Rest Of The Story.”

After the video I included audio of a lecture entitled “Beyond Marketing” that Michael E. Gerber gave to shluchim, outlining his vision for enhancing Chabad worldwide.

P.S. Please excuse the fuzzy background noise. As I said, it was raining.
