Weekly Letter: No Vacation from Torah and Mitzvos

This week, as we approach summer vacation, we present a letter the Rebbe composed especially for the Talks and Tales, a monthly children’s magazine which Rabbi Nissan Mindel authored in English for over 47 years (at the behest of the Frierdiker Rebbe, and which the Rebbe checked over each and every issue for the duration of the 47 years before they went to print). The letter contains a wonderful message to children and adults alike about the importance of Torah learning and Mitzvos during the summer months.

Crown Heights Landlord Convicted of ‘Harassment’

He faces up to a year in jail.

Op-Ed: Be Considerate; Leave a Number

A Shliach from a small town was visiting Crown Heights to stock up on months’ worth of kosher food, only to face an urgent problem that happens well too often in our neighborhood – a problem which can be entirely avoided with a little bit on consideration.
