Hachana At The Ohel

אין ספק כי בעבורך כשליח, רגעי השיא של הכינוס, הם אותם הרגעים בהם תזכה לעמוד באוהל כ"ק אדמו"ר, להעתיר בתפילה בעבורך ועבור קהילתך ולשאוב כוחות מחודשים לקראת המשך עבודת השליחות.

כמו לקראת כל דבר שבקדושה, וקל וחומר כאשר המדובר הוא בכניסה אל האוהל הקדוש, דרושה לכך הכנה והקדמה מתאימה; בהתאם לכך, הושקעו על ידי וועד הכינוס יחד עם חברת JEM, שעות רבות של מחשבה והערכות, על מנת לספק לשלוחים את היכולת להכין את עצמם כראוי, בעזרת צפייה ב'מראות קודש' מיוחדים, ובהם דברי אלוקים חיים אודות מעלת עבודת השליחות.

ניתן יהיה לצפות ב'מראות קודש' באמצעות מסכים מיוחדים שיוצבו במתחם שעל יד הציון הק' בין השעות 9:20 - 10:20 של בוקר יום ו'.

החל מהשעה 7:45 בבוקר, ייצאו הסעות מקראון הייטס אל האוהל הק' מידי מספר דקות.

הווידיאו מכיל:

• חשיבותו של כינוס השלוחים העולמי, אשר כוונתו להשפיע על העולם כולו, וכיצד ביכולתו של שליח להכריע את העולם כולו, בעזרת פעולה פרטית
משיחת כ"ח מרחשון תש"ן, בקשר עם כינוס השלוחים

• "מה שאמרו 'הבא לטהר מסייעין אותו' - הבא לטהר אחרים דוקא (ולא הבא ליטהר, היינו לטהר את עצמו). כי ע"י שמטהר אחרים, ועד שמטהר אחרים כאלה, שאין תחתון למטה מהם, הנה עי"ז מסייעין אותו... היינו שהעבודה עצמה מסייעת לו, ע"י שמכניס עצמו (ער ווארפט זיך אריין) במילוי השליחות, הרי מיד בתחילת עבודתו מקבל עזר וסיוע שיצליח עוד יותר בהמשך שליחותו.." 
קטע מתוך המאמר 'עשרה שיושבים' ט"ו תמוז תשמ"ב

• ניגוני רבותינו נשיאנו

• "אצל איש חייל ("א סאלדאט") אין נפק"מ: להיכן ששולחים אותו – לשם הולך; אם צריך לירות – הוא יורה; אם מגייסים אותו לחיל רגלים אז הוא בחיל רגלים.. אצלו אין נפק"מ – הכל הוא על האחריות של המפקד הראשי.. מה שנדרש ממנו הוא – שתהי' אצלו הקבלת עול ש"על כל אשר אשלחך תלך" "הנני שלחני" למלאות את השליחות להיות "זרעו".." 
משיחת יוד שבט תשכ"ג

• רגעים מיוחדים
אל תפספס הזדמנות מיוחדת זו!
