Last week in one of the 8th grade classes from Oholei Torah a kid asked a great question about selflessness and Rabbi Friedman’s response just had to be made into a poster :)…watch the video and see the poster below!

Samech Vov is a 61-part serial delivered by Rabbi Shalom Dov Ber Schneersohn, the fifth Lubavitcher Rebbe, begun on Rosh Hashana 5666 (1905) through the close of 5668 (1907). Elder Chasidim once declared that this work contained “the revelations of the light of Moshiach.” The series Yom Tov Shel Rosh Hashanah, 5666 explains many concepts and previous texts in the Torah of Chasidus. At the end, the Lubavitcher Rebbe Rashab appended a conclusion to the series, summarizing the novel contributions to the fundamentals of Chasidic thought contained in Samech Vov.
Among his discourses, the Rebbe Rashab spoke with special approbation of Samech Vov, for all the qualities that distinguish his discourses are there to be found in great measure, and It is known that the Lubavitcher Rebbe Rashab connected his delivery of Samech Vov with the Ketz, the expected arrival of Moshiach, forecast in the books of earlier sages to come in that year (from a talk of the Lubavitcher Rebbe).
People get all tangled up when you ask them how an infinite G-d can really care about a finite being. Luckily this video highlight can help clean up the mess and lead them to true fear and love of G-d.
