A unique effort by mashpiim across the globe uses letters from the Rebbe to empower bochurim to see life through the Rebbe’s lens.

As a follow-up to Yud Shvat’s Kinus Hatmimim, the Vaad Talmidei Hatmimim has initiated a unique project to bring the Rebbe’s perspective on various topics to the forefront of a bochur’s mind.
The project, which begins this week and runs until Yud Alef Nissan, is spearheaded by leading mashpiim in Lubavitch yeshivos: Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Gurary, Yeshivas Lubavitch Detroit; Rabbi Asher Farkash, Yeshiva Gedola Argentina; Rabbi Menachem Mendel Cohen, Ohr Elchonon Chabad LA; Rabbi Yosef Klein, Yeshivas Lubavitch Baltimore; Rabbi Naftali Hertz Pewzner, Tomchei Temimim Morristown.
For the next seven weeks, the Vaad will publish booklets which cover central issues in the life of a bochur, such as ‘veniflinu,’ responsibility towards another Jew, dealing with sadness and more. Each booklet contains powerful letters from the Rebbe which show the Rebbe’s perspective on that issue.
In addition to the booklets of letters, weekly newsletters on each topic will be sent out, containing excerpts, letters in English, stories and more.
Mashpiim from yeshivos have already expressed great excitement on seeing this new mivtza. “What is unique about the Rebbe’s Igros, is that the Rebbe is addressing a specific question by an individual,” Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Gurary said, “making it much easier to find an answer to one’s question, or a solution to what is weighing on his mind.”
“Igros Kodesh gives one a ‘window’ to see the world through the Rebbe’s viewpoint,” said Rabbi Asher Farkash, “it has the ability to literally change one’s life.”
