HaYom Yom 21 Adar א & ב

Hashgacha Pratis at its finest. Yesterday a reader commented that the description of a Chabad Chasid by someone from the outside wasnt unique to Chabad and could be said about any Chasid of any Rebbe. Today I bring you the HaYom Yom said by the Previous Lubavitcher Rebbe and compiled by our Rebbe.

HaYom Yom Adar א

 The term “chassid” is an ancient one that the Sages had even applied to Adam.  It describes perfection and excellence in intellect or in emotive character-traits, or in both. However, in Chabad Chassidic doctrine the appelation “Chassid” refers to one who recognizes his own essence-character and his standing in the knowledge and study of Torah, as well as his situation in observing mitzvot. He knows what he lacks and he is concerned and takes pains to fill that void. He is diligent in obedience in the manner of “accepting the yoke.
