New Effort to #SharetheRebbe

A new campaign launched by Rabbi Simon Jacobson‘s Meaningful Life Center provides an easy and practical way to share the Rebbe’s wisdom.

Twenty years have passed since Gimmel Tammuz 5754, a day that rattled the world profoundly. Although we may never understand the events of this day, when our “sun was silenced,” we know without any doubt that the core and essence of the Rebbe is with us. As the Rebbe explained many times, the soul of a tzaddik is “engraved in his words”. (It is similar to G-d’s declaration in the opening of the Ten Commandments: Anochi, an acronym of Ana Nafshi Kesovis Yehovis, “My soul is inscribed in these words that I gave you”.).

The best and clearest way to honor the Rebbe in connection with Gimmel Tammuz is to share his words and teachings, which carry and contain the Rebbe’s very soul, and make them available to as many people as possible.

As such, The Meaningful Life Center has launched ShareTheRebbe—an unprecedented global campaign to bring the Rebbe’s transformational teachings to every soul on earth. In order to make this easy and practical, we have arranged to send a beautifully gift-wrapped copy of the time-tested classic, Toward a Meaningful Life: The Wisdom of the Rebbe, personally signed by author Rabbi Simon Jacobson, accompanied with a personal card from you, the gifter, for a steeply discounted price (as low as $12). ShareTheRebbe allows you to share the best-selling book Toward a Meaningful Life as a personalized gift with anyone in your sphere, Jew or non-Jew, be it a family-member, coworker, employer, employee, doctor, lawyer, accountant, friend, enemy, mailman, acquaintance, or even yourself. Go to to give the gift of the Rebbe now, and introduce the Rebbe to literally anyone and everyone in a unique and beautiful way.

No book has captured the Rebbe’s message for people of all backgrounds better than Toward a Meaningful Life. The book is a proven success—having changed tens of thousands of lives. With over 400,000 copies sold and translated into 13 languages, Toward a Meaningful Life provides readers—even the most secular—a fresh outlook on every day cares to the most profound crises of the soul. It offers the Rebbe’s revolutionary perspective, in a warm and resonating tone, on every aspect of life—from birth to death, youth to old age; marriage, love, intimacy, and family; the persistent issues of career, health, pain, and suffering; and education, faith, science, and government.

Excerpt from “Toward a Meaningful Life”:
“What we are all looking for in one word, is redemption. People might use different words for it, but in essence everyone wants to be redeemed. Because no matter who you are, where you live and what you have achieved, the human spirit is restless and looking for more. Some search for healing and overcoming pain, others for a greater good.”

ShareTheRebbe will also include the opportunity to share the gifts the Rebbe gave us all. Everyone is invited to visit to contribute their own stories in a growing compendium of encounters that have left people forever changed. Please contribute YOUR story today.

We will also be launching a campaign to elevate social media by sharing your stories of the Rebbe and excerpts of his teachings with the hashtag: #ShareTheRebbe.

ShareTheRebbe is a unique opportunity to become a digital and physical shliach of the Rebbe wherever you are, whoever you are, in any time zone.
This Gimmel Tammuz, there is no need to ask, “What can I do now?” We know what to do: Each one of us can share the Rebbe with anyone we wish. And thereby ensure that Gimmel Tammuz changes the world.
