A text-based class in the Sicha of Shabbos Parshas Vayikra 5747 (Sefer HaSichos 5747 Volume 1, p. 370-379. In Hebrew: Likkutei Sichos Volume 32, Sicha on Nissan, p 19-28), presented by Rabbi Simon Jacobson and applied to today's challenges. What is unique about the first days of Nissan? Why do we commemorate the dedication offerings of the tribal leaders when the Mishkam was erected? What connection do we have to these leaders, and how does that live on and impact us and our families for eternity? What did the Rebbe Rashab mean when he said before his histlakus 100 years ago: "I am going to heaven; the writings I leave you"? What amazing story did the Frierdiker Rebbe tell in his first discourse delivered and written a century ago upon his assuming the nesius (leadership)? In a rare and fascinating sicha, delivered Shabbos Parshas Vayikra 5747/1987, the Rebbe explains that the first days of Nissan are unique in their expression of the generation's leaders eternity and their eternal connection with the people connected with them. This eternal connection manifests in the physical world -- in the writings, books, and even furniture and instruments of the Rebbeim. We are charged with actualizing and perpetuating this immortality in our personal lives and homes today. This sicha was so special that the Rebbe instructed it be translated and published in the weekly Likkutei Sichos series of that week, and he added an unprecedented compliment on the sicha: הגדילו לעשות (it was done great).

When a new disease appears, G-d forbid, that has never before existed, it is certain that the remedies used in the past would be of no use... We are in a new era, which has both new blessings and medicines, as well as an increase in new challenges and illnesses. A new disease therefore requires finding a new appropriate remedy, beginning with Torah, which brings healing to the world. The innovation of this generation, initiated by the Frierdiker Rebbe, is to learn the weekly Parsha. -- Sichas Yud Alef Nissan 5742 As doctors do their part, let us do our part in bringing healing to the world through the study of Torah, specifically the Parsha each week, as explained by the Rebbe in Likkutei Sichos and Sefer Hasichos. In this broadcast, Rabbi Simon Jacobson presents a class in the Sicha of Shabbos Parshas Vayikra 5747 (Sefer HaSichos 5747 Volume 1, p. 370-379. In Hebrew: Likkutei Sichos Volume 32, Sicha on Nissan, p 19-28), and applies its relevance to today's challenges.
