הכנה רוחנית לפני הכניסה אל הציון הק'

רגעי השיא של הכינוס הם אותם רגעים בהם תזכה להיות באהל הק' של כ"ק אדמו"ר זי"ע, להעתיר תפילה עבורך ועבור קהילתך ולשאוב כוחות מחודשים להמשך עבודת השליחות.

לקראת כל דבר שבקדושה, וק"ו כאשר מדובר בכניסה אל האהל הק' דרושה הכנה מתאימה. עבור כך הושקעו - על ידי ועד הכינוס ואנשי חברת המדיה החב"דית JEM - שעות של מחשבה והיערכות, על מנת לספק לשלוחים את היכולת להכין עצמם כראוי, בעזרת צפייה ב'מראות קודש' מיוחדים, ובהם דברי אלוקים חיים אודות מעלת עבודת השליחות.

הוידאו יוקרן על מסכים מיוחדים שיוצבו ב'טענט' הנמצא במתחם 'בית אהל חב"ד ליובאוויטש' בסמיכות לציון הק', בבוקר יום שישי בין השעות 9-10 בבוקר. החל מהשעה 7:30 בבוקר, ייצאו אוטובוסים מיוחדים מבית חיינו לכיוון האהל הק', מידי כמה דקות.

תוכן קצר של הוידאו:

• "ההשתתפות ב"כינוס השלוחים העולמי" נחשבת זכות לכאו"א מהמשתתפים, וממילא מובן מאליו שהיא זכות עבורי ועבור על הענינים כו'. ומכיון שזהו "כינוס עולמי", יש להתפלל להקב"ה שפעולתו תהי' באופן ד"הולך ומוסיף ואור" בכל העולם כולו. ואע"פ שקשה לאדם אחד להשפיע על רבים, הרי "חברא חברא אית לי'", ונוסף על זה (והוא העיקר) – בודאי ישנה סייעתא דשמיא, שהרי מדובר בחפץ ורצון לסייע לרבים מבני ישראל בהפצת התורה והיהדות" (משיחת כ"ח מרחשוון ה'תש"נ, בקשר עם כינוס השלוחים העולמי לפני שלושים שנה)

• "י"ט כסלו – תחלת מעשיך, שלימות הכוונה האמיתית בבריאת האדם עלי ארץ, להמשיך גילוי אור פנימיות תורתינו הקדושה, אשר נמשך ביום הזה [בחג הגאולה י"ט כסלו] בבחי' המשכה כללית על כל השנה" (ממאמר ד"ה זה היום תחלת מעשיך, י"ט כסלו ה'תשד"מ)

• ניגוני רבותינו נשיאינו

• "הביאור היחיד שמצאתי הוא, שמעתה הענין עבר מ"הנשיא הוא הכל" אל "הכל", היינו לכל אחד ואחד מישראל .. ובנוגע לפועל – יש לפרסם, ביתר שאת וביתר עוז, עד שהענין יגיע לידיעתו של כאו"א מישראל, אשר על ידי מעשה אחד ויחיד, דיבור אחד ויחיד, או מחשבה אחת יחידה, ביכלתו להביא ישועה והצלה לעולם, כפסק דין הרמב"ם! .. כדאי ונכון שבכל אסיפת כו"כ מישראל יזכירו ויעוררו: הקשיבו יהודים! הוספת מעשה אחד ע"י כאו"א מכם – ובפרט על ידי שלושה יהודים ביחד – יכולה להיות המעשה שהוא ה"מכה בפטיש" לפני הגאולה האמיתית והשלימה" (משיחת חג הפורים ה'תשמ"ז)

אל תפספס הזדמנות מיוחדת זו!

Kinus Theme

The task of transforming the world into a dirah for G-d may seem unrealistic.Can a few thousand dedicated shluchim really touch several billion souls? Obviously, we are not meant to do it alone. The project of reshaping the world can only be accomplished if every Jew takes part.

The Rebbe elaborated on this theme in two sichos during the 5750 Kinus HaShluchim (ש"פ חיי שרה; שיחת יום א' פ' תולדות): The role of the shliach is to reveal the “inner shliach” of every person in their communities and to activate them in the mission of creating a dirah bitachtonim. Each ambassador will then ignite the soul of his or her friend, who will in turn inspire their sphere of influence, until every Jew wherever they may be found, burns with the desire to create a Divine reality in this world.

The focus of this year’s Kinus then, is to take the Rebbe’s exhortation to heart, and to return to our communities with a single-minded focus to empower those close to us to become shluchim in their own right. Throughout the Kinus weekend we will explore new, innovative ways to recruit and inspire every Jew we know to take on greater responsibility in our shared work of לתקן עולם במלכות ש'ד'י' עם הרבי בראשנו.

This year also marks שנת השבעים of the נשיאות of the Rebbe. Will will use the opportunity to rededicate ourselves and our work, to reconnect and reenergize ourselves through the duration of the Kinus and the entire year.
