INSIGHT

 

 

LESSON 1

Changing of the Garden

 

 

A WORLD ABLOOM IN GOODNESS. One of the Rebbe’s

outstanding qualities was his indefatigable optimism. He insisted

on seeing the good in everything—in every event and in all

phenomena. Was this optimism anchored in reality? The Rebbe

taught that there is no divide between G‑d and the material world,

between goodness and each aspect of our lives. The entire universe

and all that transpires are expressions of G‑d’s beautiful “garden.”

The reality, then, is that below the surface of all that is lies a

wellspring of goodness, holiness, and heightened potential. It is

our job to dig beneath the surface and uncover

that goodness. The Rebbe’s different view of the world.

 

LESSON TWO

Brewed to Perfection
 

 

YOUR UNCONDITIONAL POTENTIAL. Much has been

written about the Rebbe’s unconditional love and acceptance

of all people. The Rebbe defined a person not by his or her

manifest failures and weaknesses, but by the soul’s absolute

perfection and unlimited potential. The challenge is to reveal

this perfection, but even when this has yet to happen, the

internal core of perfection in every human being is what

defines us. The Rebbe’s different view of the human being.

LESSON THREE

 

At The Bottom of the Pot

 

WHEN FAILURE INFUSES FRUITION. As established in

the previous lessons, the Rebbe had a knack for seeing the

positive in all events, phenomena, people, etc. But what about

life-choices that are objectively bad, immoral, and contrary to

the Torah’s teachings—is there any good in those? One of the

pillars of the Rebbe’s philosophy is that not only is there the

possibility of using past regretful choices as a springboard to

greater places, but that doing so is their purpose and where

they inevitably must lead. This understanding reframes our

view of past errors and empowers us to thrive—not despite,

but—because of them. The Rebbe’s different view of failure.

LESSON FOUR

 

An Eternal Blueprint

 

BLENDING CELESTIAL SPIRIT AND MUNDANE MATTERS.

The secret of Jewish survival is the Torah, which century after

century has been studied and taught with commitment and

love. But of what value is the Torah in our everyday lives? Based

on the assertion of the Zohar that the Torah is the blueprint of

the world, the Rebbe constantly emphasized that no element of

creation can possibly be in conflict with Torah. The Torah is not

only a guide to living a holy, spiritual life, but also a guide to how

to properly utilize and interact with the world in optimal fashion.

This premise has many ramifications, including that observing

the Torah’s instructions is the best way to assure oneself a good

life—in a material sense too. The Rebbe’s different view of the Torah.

LESSON FIVE

 

The Dawning of an Era

 

THE ESSENCE OF THE FEMININE ROLE. Men and women are

different in so many ways—physically, emotionally, and even in

the way their brains operate. All these are due to the different

roles that men and women serve in bringing all of Creation to

its desired destination—the Redemption. Nevertheless, the

Rebbe taught that the Redemption is primarily a feminine era,

and therefore Jewish women play the lead role in bringing

all of creation to that awaited time. This lesson explores the

feminine mystique in an attempt to discover why this is so.

The Rebbe’s different view of women and the feminine role.

LESSON SIX

 

Destiny Distilled


OPEN YOUR EYES TO AN AUGMENTED REALITY. The

Rebbe continuously emphasized the historic and unique role

of our generation. Pointing to the revolutionary changes that

have taken place in technology, politics, the human spirit, etc.,

the Rebbe observed that the overall goal of creation is finally

within reach and that the world is finally ready for redemption.

How might we take advantage of this unprecedented time in

history and energize ourselves for the sprint to the finish line?

The Rebbe’s different view of contemporary events and trends.

 

LESSON SEVEN

 

Served Strong

 

BE A LEADER. CREATE LEADERS. What is ideal Jewish

leadership? What makes an effective leader? What makes a

Rebbe? In 1950, the Rebbe assumed leadership of a decimated,

weary, small Chasidic movement. Over the following decades,

he grew the movement into an international powerhouse, the

largest and fastest-growing force in modern Jewry. Despite

the Rebbe’s physical absence, he continues to inspire the

growth of the movement. This lesson examines the Rebbe’s

leadership model and uncovers the Rebbe’s secret: the Rebbe

never set out to create followers at all, but to create leaders.

This lesson examines how to apply this leadership paradigm to

all areas of leadership. The Rebbe’s different view of leadership.
