When the Lubavitcher Rebbe Tried to Influence Lakewood

12

nissan mangelCrown Heights Rabbi Nissan Mangel recalls being sent by the Lubavitcher Rebbe to Lakewood, NJ. He was in for a surprise.

When the Rebbe sent Rabbi Nissan Mangel to Lakewood to spread the teachings of Chassidus, he didn’t fully know what to expect.

After spending a full week around the Yeshiva and assuming his job was more or less complete without incident, he was in for a most moving surprise.

Upon his return to Crown Heights, he was greeted with a welcome from the Rebbe and a cryptic acknowledgment of his work.

This video was included in the Living Torah video magazine and released by JEM in honor of Yud Tes Kislev – the Rosh Hashana of Chassidus.

  1. ” Yud Tes Kislev – the Rosh Hashana of Chassidus.”FACT;THE HOLY BAAL SHEM TOV IS THE FOUNDER OF CHASSIDUS AND NOT THE BAAL HTANYA (THE FIRST LUBAVITCHER REBBE).THE BAAL SHEM TOV HAD A STUDENT THE MAGGID OF MEZBICH WHO WAS THE REBBE OF THE BAAL HTANYA (THE FIRST LUBAVITCHER REBBE)
    ON YUD TES KISLEV ,THE HOLY MAGGID OF MEZBICH THE REBBE OF THE BAAL HTANYA PASSED AWAY .AND THE BAAL HTANYA WAS FREED FROM JAIL.

  2. Headline is way off secondly
    Who cares there is absolutly nothing to this story if it even true
    And is that normal to send students into another yeshiva to influence them of these things?

  3. Kolle student, engaged, not in dormitory, in 1950s, something doesn’t add up. His memory must be failing him. I wonder if he’s the one who introduced reb shlomale to Tanya which ultimately caused him to leave Lakewood,

  4. The idea was not to gain another student rather to introduce more and more people to the wellsprings of Chassidus which was the mantle the Baal Shem Tov charged all his students.
    The Baal Shem Tov saw in this both the remedy to counter the darkness of our times and what will bring about the redemption speedily in our days

  5. bubbe mices
    there were no hoshanos in lkwd?
    if the choson was learning everyday anyways then why did he have to search mindel @ 1 AM?
    it also sounds like mindel didnt learn w/ anybody else all week!
