(Audio) "Be a shining example"
The Pirusm Rishon blogspot has posted a special audio file that it received from Rabbi Shmuel and Pinny Lew where one hears the Rebbe speaking to Lubavitch senior girls from London in 1981 who came in for the Yud Beis Tamuz farbrengen.
The sidra that was read on the Shabbos preceding the "yehidus" was Pinchus and the Rebbe spoke to the girls about the great merit that the daughters of Tslofchod had and said that just like the daughters of Tslofchod served as a leading and shining example for the Jewish People so to "you (girls) should be a leading and shining example."
The Rebbe told them that the daughters of Tslofchod showed that a Jewish daughter has "tremendous possibilities."
In wake of Yud Aleph Nissan in two weeks, the Rebbe's birthday, Yosi Greizman, a student in the Lubavitcher Yeshiva in Kfar Chabad, composed a new niggun. The words are taken from the Rebbe's new Chapter in Tehilim (107) which we start reciting on Yud Aleph Nissan:
Hodu Lashem Ki Tov Ki Leolam Chasdo. Yomru Geulei Hashem Asher Geolom Miyad Tsor/ Veyizbechu Zivchei Toda Visapru Maasov Berina. Yiru Yeshorim Veyismochu Vechil Avla Koftzo Piho. Mi Chochom Veyishmor Elei Veyisbonenu Chasdei Hashem.

We are taught that there are two components to its fulfillment: to give G-d a voice in his world by making it more G-dly, and. to reach a state where-in the primary pleasure in life is closeness to G-d.
Avraham Fried these days is recording a new song composed by Abie Rotenberg and M. Gordon that will be heard on a new disc soon tocome out. The disc will also include songs sung by the top singers in the Chassidic music field today.
Shlager.com today posted a sample of Fried's new song "Ma Ashiv."
As Yud Aleph Nissan approaches the students in the Yeshiva of Detroit composed a new Niggun to the words "Mi Yemalel Gevuros Hashem Yashmia Kol Tehiloso Veyoshiom Lemaan Shemo Lehodia Es Gevuroso, Boruch Hashem Elokei Yisroel Min Haolam Vead Haolam Veomar Kol Haom Haleluya."
A special committe has been established in order to choose the Niggun which best fits the Rebbe's new chapter in Tehilim starting Yud Aleph Nissan.
