Over the past 11 days, hundreds of people from across the globe learned a specially prepared lesson in honor of
Yud Shevat, marking the passing of the sixth Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneerson (1880-1950), and the day when the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson (1902-1994) formally accepted the leadership of Chabad-Lubavitch in 1951.
Participants were asked to study a sicha (talk) of the Rebbe in English, Spanish, or Hebrew and answer three questions related to the material for a chance to win prizes. Two winners were chosen.
First prize - $300.00 to
Shira Steinherz, New York
Second prize - $100 to Kehos:
Marcos Slipakoff, Argentina
Thank you to all who participated!
Participants were asked to share the most powerful new lesson they took from the sicha. Here is one selected answer:
"Wow. The Sicha was beautifully translated, and such a pleasure to learn. Everything was explained brilliantly and clearly. I felt that the lessons learned in the text can be applied to my daily life. Thank you JNet for enabling such high level learning to be accessible to us."
