 Chof Zayin Adar I: Now the Job is Ours 
Many of the sichos in the years before 27 Adar contain clear hints of guidance for chassidim concerning the periods after 27 Adar and Gimmel Tammuz. What to do about not hearing the Rebbe was also forewarned. In the sicha of the parsha of Bo, shortly before 27 Adar, the Rebbe clearly alluded to the possibility of such a scenario, and taught the chassidim how to deal with it ■ more

 Bitochon: Tzedaka and Investments 
In his younger years, R' Mendel Futerfas was involved in business together with several other partners, and he did very well. There was just one thing that set him apart from his fellow business partners, and that was from all of the money he earned he would give everything that he didn't need away to tzedaka for Yeshivas Tomchei Temimim. As a result of this practice, when it came time to investing in the next business venture, he first needed to raise the necessary funds ■ more
