Syria and Iran

From Living Torah (Volume 64, Episode 253)

Israel’s welfare is in the best interest of the United States, because Israel is the front line against the Arabs. The Arabs are against the United States no less than they are against Israel — and perhaps even more so! And it is imperative that there be a strong Israel in order to inhibit the influence of Syria, Iran, and the other hostile countries in the Middle East.

Youth Movement

From Living Torah (Volume 63, Episode 251)

My father-in-law, the Rebbe, published a letter stating a clear directive how to utilize the events of the 12th and 13th of Tammuz: To unify all Jews — “those who hold Torah dear, those who safeguard the commandments, even those who consider themselves ‘Jewish’ in name only.”

The Rebbe’s letter was addressed to every Jew, and to man and woman alike. But in general, the older a person is, the more set he is in his ways. The younger one is, however, the easier it is to break free of self-limitations. Therefore, adolescents have a special mission to go out with greater strength and to achieve much more.

Through their energetic work, the “youth will put the elders to shame” — they will outshine the efforts of their elders in this regard. And the elders will certainly not be jealous, but rather “envy of scholars increases wisdom” – the youth will draw the elders along with them, and together they will awaken every Jew to recognize their own duty “to perfect the world under the sovereignty of G-d.”
