The Short Version of the Chabad Bar Mitzvah “Maamar”

The Short Version of the Chabad Bar Mitzvah “Maamar”

This link will open up an abbreviated version of a speech first recited by Rabbi Sholom DovBer Schneersohn, the fifth Rebbe of Lubavitch on his Bar Mitzvah, and subsequently by his son and countless other Bar Mitzvah boys. A “maamar” is a meditation on mystical thought, originally spoken by a Chasidic rebbe from within a deep, contemplative state. This writing discusses the cosmic significance of Torah study, tefillin, mitzvot, and the relationship between God and the Jewish people. Edited by Rabbi Tzvi Freeman, this resource was shared on Chabad.org, which focuses on continuing the Lubavitcher Rebbe’s legacy of bringing Jews closer to Judaism, providing a massive multimedia library for children and adults in eight different languages.
