chof zayin adar

For those born after this day, should this day mean something, should it be part of our chassidishe calender?
For those alive at the time when this day took place, you could say its a serious day of contemplating hiskashrus and strengthening etc...
BUt what about those born after this day should it mean anything?
whats the significance?

imho,it is a very sad day in the month of Adar

when Moshiach will come,(hopefully today) it will be transformed in a Yom Tov, like is the rule of any sad day in Golus

I don't understand the question: why would a day relevant to the rebbeim not be relevant to us, just because we weren't around then? It's takkeh harder to relate to, but that doesn't make it irrelevant. Were you around on the original 19 Kislev?

OP: Why did you start a new thread that's almost identical to an earlier one you posted?

When someone is very thirsty, the solution is to drink.

When someone was born later, then there is much more longing, desire, and thirst to experience the Rebbe.
And the way to satisfy this thirst, is to drink.

To drink the water of Torah. And to study chassidus, the inner part of the Torah.

And then the Rebbe is with you.

I would add to this only the fact that the Rebbe gave some specific and detailed instructions for his Chassidim in his various sichos (most notably the most recent sichos, which give us a clear directive to bring Moshiach b'poel mamosh, and explain how to accomplish that goal).

It's true that 27 Adar has sadness connected to it.

But the Rebbe always aimed for the positive and for constructiveness, even in sad events.


On the 28th of Nissan 5791 (eleven months before 27 Adar), the Rebbe told us that he has done all he can to bring Moshiach, and now it's up to us.

On 27 Adar, this message became clear. And especially after 3 Tamuz.


So although 27 Adar is connected to sadness; nevertheless by following the Rebbe's instruction to do all we can to bring Moshiach, we can reveal the positive power connected to 27 Adar.

But the answer to that question--whatever it may be--is the same whether you were around then or not.
