• 3) It Is Not Your Job To Destroy

    Shlichus According To The Rebbe #3: With the annual Kinus Hashluchim a mere few weeks away, ChabadInfo.com presents the third installment of directives of the Rebbe to Shluchim, focusing on directives that the Shluchim seem to be unaware of ● Today, a sharp letter to R’ Avraham Paris who had an idea how to “build” Aguch in Israel ● Read More

    In the first years of the Rebbe’s leadership, the Rebbe sent countless letters to the central Chabad organizations in Israel, specifically Agudas Chassidei Chabad (Aguch) and Tzach, begging them to expand their activities, and do something for the sake of the growth of Chabad in Israel.

    The renowned Chossid R’ Avraham Paris was appointed by the Rebbe to oversee the progress of the various institutions and give the Rebbe reports. The Rebbe’s letters in response to his letters are printed in his biography “Echad Haya Avraham.”

    On page 225, the following letter appears, written by the Rebbe on the 12th of Iyar 5713 (1953):

    “5) [Regarding] what you wrote, that you recommended to Aguch, that if they want to show that they exist they have to be tough, and the first thing they have to do is to take away the responsibility of education from the “Reshet Oholei Yosef Yitzchak” [Chabad’s network of schools in Israel], because they aren’t the right people for it, etc. etc.

    – I have a question on that matter, that after all the letters and requests [from the Rebbe], every single thing that Anash in Israel want to do, and every “activity” – they approach it with a plan to destroy; and even if it would be needed, I have no doubt, that there are enough activities of building that are needed, and they are at least as important as what they want to destroy.

    But obviously, destroying is easier than building, and it is also more acceptable to the animalistic soul, instead of focusing on building Lubavitch.

    For them [Aguch] to take away the above-mentioned title [from the Reshet] after it was in their hands for the past few months, is not the way that Aguch should educate – [that their mission] is to wage war against the “Reshet” or any other Lubavitch institution, even if it is something in which they are 100% correct, as long as there are activities of building which need to be done, and they still didn’t start any of them.

    And after all the calculations, of all the mistakes that the Hanhala of “Reshet” did, in these or other aspects, they still have 4-5 schools with many children learning in them, while [at the same time] from all the members of Aguch together, in Tel-Aviv, I still can’t get any clear answer as to what they are doing to help the Yeshiva in Tel-Aviv. This is despite the fact that the Yeshiva in Lod sent a whole class of students [to the Tel-Aviv Yeshiva], and the same applies to the rest of their activities.
