In honor of Shavuos we present a letter in which the Rebbe explains the importance of performing milah [circumcision] the Jewish way and its connection with the geyrus [conversion] process of the Jewish people – which began in Egypt on Pesach and concluded at Mount Sinai on Shavuos. The Rebbe’s emphasis on performing milah in accordance with all the details, including metzitza (which some misguided individuals object to) – is so relevant and speaks to us today as well. The letter, written originally in English, is from the archives of the Rebbe’s trusted secretary Rabbi Nissan Mindel.
In the final chapter of the Tanya [kuntres acharon] the Alter Rebbe speaks about the laws of Shabbos and states that they can be divided into two categories; the external dimension and the internal one.
