This week we present a fascinating letter the Rebbe writes in answer to an artist who wishes to add a stone to the Western Wall. In it the Rebbe explains the injunction in Parshas Vo’eschanon (as well as in another parsha) to neither add nor detract from the words of the Torah. The letter, written originally in English, is from the archives of the Rebbe’s trusted secretary Rabbi Nissan Mindel.

After last years amazing success camp Yaldei Hashluchim Ukraine reopened again for the second time with over 40 kids. Shluchim from all over Ukraine sent their children far away from their place of Shlichus in order to be in an environment of Torah and Mitzvos, an environment of Yiddishkeit and Chassidishkeit as well as a place filled with fun exciting trips and activities.
What an awesome feeling and delighted pleasure it is for parents to be witness their child’s acknowledgment and enjoyment of their mother’s or father’s unique qualities. However, why is it sometimes so difficult to value and express esteem towards one’s nobility and kindness?
In 1990, when I was passing through New York – on my way home from Toronto where I was invited to speak at a women’s convention – I went to see the Rebbe as he was giving out dollars for charity. I stood in that very long line because there was someone who desperately needed the Rebbe’s blessing, and I wanted to use this occasion to ask for it. I was very nervous that when I reached the head of the line I would be so in awe of the Rebbe that I’d be rendered speechless, and I kept reciting Psalms to give myself courage.
