What is Chassidus’ take on this sad period, and what are the Rebbe’s directives during these days?

Rabbi Raphael Tennenhaus
 A Small Bite of Shabbos Delight 
There is so much going on this week from the perspective of Torah.
We read, learn and live the Torah reading of Balak, we conclude Pirkei Avos (chapter 6), Sunday is the fast of the 17th of Tammuz (postponed from Shabbos), and the three weeks of sorrow begin ■ The message of the fast being pushed off to Sunday should serve as an inspiration that ultimately all negativity will be pushed off forever ■ more

"The crown of sages are their grandchildren, and the beauty of children their fathers.  Rabbi Nachman Wilhelm of Smicha Online speaks about the relationship between parents and grandparents ■ more
Neirot In - Depth Sicha
 Parshas Balak: Sea and Land 
In this week’s parsha Bilaam prophesizes concerning the times of Moshiach. The present Sicha analyzes the statement that Moshiach will “reign from sea to sea and from the river to the ends of the land,” and illustrates how it alludes to one’s personal service towards G-d ■ more
Leb'n Mit Moshiach
 17 Tammuz: Now, A Different Approach 
NOW, A DIFFERENT APPROACH: Practically speaking: Despite the clamor and “storm” that has been made in the last few months, and despite the wonders that we have seen which indicate that it is “the year when King Moshiach will be revealed,” there remains, nevertheless, difficulty to permeate this idea internally, that people should realize and be aware that we are actually on the threshold of the Geulah , and they should begin to live with the concept of Moshiach and Geulah ■ more
The Chassidishe Parsha
 Parshas Balak: “Lo Hibit Ovon Beyaakov" 
“Lo Hibit Avon Beyaakov" This week’s Maamar examines the statement in Bilaam’s prophecy that “Hashem does not look to see sin amongst the [children of] Yaakov.” Bilaam attempted to curse the Jewish people but ended up blessing them. The blessings of Bilaam, despite coming from a wicked person, contain deep meaning and direction for the Jewish people. What does it mean that Hashem did not see sin amongst the Jewish people? Were they truly completely righteous and without sin ■ more

Rabbi Mordechai Lipskier
 Parshas Balak: Power to the Wome 
The Jewish people seem strong and invincible in this week's parshah. They're winning battle after battle, and Bilaam's repeated attempts to curse them fail, ultimately transforming into blessings instead ■ Holiness is more powerful than its counterpart. So if women were able to impact the men so strongly in a negative way, surely they can have an even greater positive influence ■ more
