To The Shluchos Convention – 5751 (quotes from the Rebbe)

 

GOD’S GLORY

When many Jews gather, first and foremost this emphasizes “The glory of the king is in public (with a multitude.”)

GOD’S JOY

Even more importantly this gives God great joy, seeing that so many of his beloved children – as he loves every Jew, as one loves an only child – are together (like a parent feels upon seeing his children united.)

JOY AND BLESSINGS

This causes that God increases their blessings including (or thereby) increasing their subsequent ability to be joyous – and this then in turn increases God’s joy creating a positive cycle.

JOY AND BLESSINGS

As there is a commandment to increase joy – hence as God fulfils his own commands, therefore he continually (specifically in the month of Adar) adds in his blessings which causes more joy, which then in turn increases God’s joy, causing a positive cycle.

INFINITE BLESSSINGS

From this increased blessing and joy in Adar, this wonderful dynamic continually cycles.

INFINITE JOY
As God’s giving hand is infinite, hence when this is most emphasized, namely on Purim, the joy is likewise.

INFINITE JOY AND BLESSINGS

This joy permeates and hence causes infinite benefit, in all spiritual and physical aspects.

This then continues through the year.

UNITY AND JOY

We should emphasize that the spirit of the Joy of Adar, is one of unity.

HUMBLE GIVING

Just as when we exchange shalach manois (the traditional gifts of food) we feel equal (on par, between the givers) similarly when we give charity, one must realize, that as our sages state, more than you give, you receive (in turn.)

HUMBLE GIVING

Just as often a wealthy man will need say good advice or a loan, so at that time he is like a receiver – but even more so, at times, extra cash could allow him to make more money – similarly when one gives to another, realizing that this is actually the givers bonus (as now God will likewise reward him) and by such a contemplation, it is easy to have true love for your fellow Jew (“as you love yourself” for in actuality this is whom you are benefiting.)

UNITY AND JOY

Now the true source of the Jew’s joy, is in their feeling close (to one another) which of-course in turn causes God joy (and creates a positive cycle. )

MAN’S PURPOSE

The building of the mishkan represents the fundamental purpose of everyone, for when God made the world he clearly states, it was made in a way, to fix – in other words, he desires that partnering with him you fix everything.

WOMAN’S PURPOSE

The main way we make the personal mishkan (as God states “make for me a mikdash and I will dwell in each person”) and rectifying the world, is firstly, emptying ourselves so we can be filled with God, and from there influencing  our family and from there the world – as the mainstay of the home is the woman, hence when she does so, including not only her children but likewise her husband, hence the main fix comes from her.

SHLUCHOIS

Certain women were especially chosen for this task – namely the Shluchos – and hence not only do they create a palace for God in their own home but influence the Jewish women in their environs to likewise – and as they are representatives of all the Jewish women for this task, hence what they do gets credited to the entire Jewish womenhood.
