A practical way to cultivate the energies of Yud Tes Kislev is through learning what the Rebbeim shared with us on this special day. A select excerpt from the Frierdiker Rebbe’s Likkutei Dibburim will help you do just that.
Do you learn Chassidus, but feel like you’re not experiencing the excitement you should?
Do you learn Chassidus, but want to enhance your studying of these mind-blowing concepts?
Do you learn Chassidus, and therefore, you want to unlock a deeper dimension of appreciation?
Or perhaps, do you not yet learn Chassidus at all?
Yud Tes Kislev also commonly referred to as Rosh Hashanah of Chassidus. As this indicates, what Rosh Hashanah accomplishes for the year, Yud Tes Kislev does for Chassidus. The nature of a “head” or “lead” is that it impacts whatever follows. Similarly, just as Rosh Hashanah serves as a day of renewal of energies and empowered commitment, Yud Tes Kislev, the head of the year for Chassidus, is a day where Chassidim should work to renew their commitments to Chassidus and allow the spirit of the auspicious day to reinvigorate and refresh each studier as they endeavor to further explore Chassidus.
A practical way to cultivate the energies of Yud Tes Kislev is through learning what the Rebbeim shared with us on this special day and increasing the study of Chassidus. In this spirit, Sichos in English is sharing a select excerpt from Likkutei Dibburim, an engaging and heartfelt work of the Frierdiker Rebbe, which Chassidim worldwide can learn to refresh their understanding of Chassidus and its relevance.
In a unique style, the Frierdiker Rebbe shares anecdotes and stories with insightful nuggets of depth interwoven in between. This excerpt of Likkutei Dibburim shares a farbrengen from 19 Kislev of 5692 (1931) which took place in Riga, Latvia. The contents of this farbrengen include many of the famous stories regarding the story of Yud tes Kislev, the Alter Rebbe’s arrest, imprisonment, and release, as well as anecdotes in regard to the meaning of Chassidus, the history of Chassidus, and its relevance to our day to day lives. This engaging read coupled with the foundational ideas discussed make these chapters an appropriate choice to reboot one’s Chassidus mode.
While Sichos in English’s Likkutei Dibburim collection has been pored over by thousands, to further cater to its readership, a new and improved Likkueti Dibburim series is in the works. The beautiful series is soon headed to print and will be available for purchase in the upcoming months. The heart to heart talks have been remodeled to include seamless navigation, a clear index, insightful footnotes, and reader friendly text. All of which you can get a sneak peak of in the Yud Tes Kislev excerpt!
Whether a frequent impassioned studier, a studier that can use some enthusiasm, or a soon-to-be studier, Yud Tes Kislev is your opportunity to give yourself a dose of strength and invigoration in your relationship with Chassidus. And learning Likkutei Dibburim is the choicest start!
