Can you perform miracles?

Can you perform miracles?

I think you can. I mean it. Seriously. A real miracle. Does that sound a little far-fetched? Let me tell you a story:

A group of students once visited the Lubavitcher Rebbe, they had prepared questions on a whole range of topics and the Rebbe answered each of their questions. Toward the end of the meeting one student asked “They say that Rebbe can perform miracles, is this true? Does the Rebbe really  have supernatural powers?”

The Rebbe answered “We each posses a soul that is a spark of G-d, therefore we all have the power to transcend the limitations of this physical world.”

“And now,” continued the Rebbe “I will perform a miracle.”

“Each one of you will now commit to improve yourself in one particular area. You will choose something that you have previously realized must be fixed but you have deemed it too difficult and ‘out of your reach’. Still, you will persist and you will succeed thereby proving that you can actually overcome the limitations of the natural order and perform a miracle”.

This Tuesday is the 3rd of Tammuz which marks the anniversary of the Rebbe’s passing. Although physically distant, the Rebbe’s influence is as strong as ever, perhaps more so than before. In honor of this occasion let us each perform a miracle in our own life. You can do it!

Perform a miracle today.

I am currently in New York attending a conference, visiting family and participating in the 3rd of Tammuz activities. I will be praying at the Rebbe’s resting place and would be honored to include a prayer for you and your family. Please send me an email with your Jewish name and your mother’s Jewish name (and the names of anyone else that you would like to include) and I will make sure to include you in my prayers.
