Beis Iyar: Lechatchila Ariber

Handwritten manuscript of the Rebbe Maharash and the cover of one of his many books

Tomorrow, the 2nd of Iyar, marks the birthday of the Rebbe Maharash, the fourth Chabad Rebbe, Rabbi Shmuel Schneersohn. Watch the Rebbe pray on the night of the yartzeit, distribute dollars for charity, and speak on the importance of the day.

After prayers, the Rebbe spoke about the Rebbe Maharash’s motto of “lechatchila ariber”, go straight over, and used that to exhort his chassidim not to be daunted by obstacles; and to never be satisfied with their past accomplishments.
