Rebbe: 3 Tammuz.

Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the Lubavitcher Rebbe

Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the Lubavitcher Rebbe

This is a difficult day for me. We commemorate the Rebbe’s passing fifteen years ago. I am at once struck with shame, sense of inertia (and guilt), and also deep longing for someone I never truly knew. I am humbled and overwhelmed. I can only ask that we spend a few moments in reflection. May we foster the ability to overcome ourselves, and learn to give fully. May our days be filled with meaning — a result of effort — and kindness unto others. This is part of the Rebbe’s legacy.

Blessings to all.
