Friday, June 11, 2010 Inspiring the Next Generation
On Yud Shevat, 5725 (1965), fifteen years after the Frierdiker Rebbe's passing, the Rebbe gave a historic talk on the critical importance that Chassidim document the stories of their generation, in order for the younger generation to learn from them, and to pass them on to future generations.
It has been sixteen years since Gimmel Tammuz. We each seek to be inspired by learning the stories of our Rebbe. And those who don't have stories of their own, must rely on the older generation.
The My Encounter with the Rebbe oral history project fulfills this request of the Rebbe's from over 45 years ago. Its leaders do their best to make sure the events are documented for future generations. And they have only just begun.
