Of Blessed Memory, and the beauty of a better tomorrow

To The Editor:

As we will sit around the Seder table, we remember and celebrate our rich and illustrious heritage. In spirit and deed we will be united with all of you and with the millions of our brothers and sisters the world over.

On Tuesday, March 31, the 11th of Nissan the world marked the 113th anniversary since the birth of Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of blessed memory.

The Rebbe taught that unity is so much stronger than division, goodness is so much better than evil. His message to people of various origins and persuasions was that we must always be on the same side, for we are all children of the same G-d.

That we need to find the inherent goodness in each other and encourage one another to fulfill our charge from the Almighty G-d to perfect the world under His sovereignty.

Let us utilize a few of those special moments during the Seder to reflect on all that unites us and bless each other with only the best, spiritually and materially. And let us carry the powerful energy and spirit of unity into practical ways year round.

May G-d bless you and all your loved ones that the “Season of Freedom” redeem you from the shackles of yesterday, remind you of the opportunities of today, and reward you with the beauty of a better tomorrow with only health, happiness and an abundance of Yiddisheh Nachas from your family, friends – and ourselves.

May G-d continue to bless our country, these United States of America, our holy land,Eretz Yisrael, the land of Israel with safety, security and abundance materially and spiritually. And may we all experience the ultimate redemption, with the coming of Moshiach now.
