Unbreakable Bond

This Wednesday and Thursday is the holiday of Shavuot. The day G-d came down on Mount Sinai and gave us the Ten Commandments. When G-d asked us if we want the Torah we answered "Naaseh V'nishmah - we shall do and we shall hear!" At that moment we and G-d became inseparable.

Bring G-d Back

What are we all trying to accomplish? What is the grand plan for this world and creation?

This Monday is the 67th Yahrzeit of Rabbi Joseph I Schneersohn of blessed memory and the day his son-in-law Rabbi Menachem M Schneersohn OBM assumed the leadership of Chabad. 

The last discourse on Chassidic thought that Rabbi Joseph Schneerson instructed his followers to learn and the first Chassidic discourse Rabbi Menachem Schneersohn said was based on a verse in the Song of Songs, where G-d tells us "I have returned to My garden my sister my bride". With explaining these words, these two great leaders and Chassidic masters give us insight into the ultimate purpose of why we are here!
