Vayechi 5752: Where Eternal Life is Drawn From

ונשיא דורנו – יוסף שבדורנו – ש”לא מת”, כמו יעקב אבינו (“אלה תולדות יעקב יוסף”), כידוע ש”נשיא” ר”ת “ניצוצו של יעקב אבינו”, וע”י ההתקשרות והביטול לנשיא הדור ה”ז נמשך בכל אחד ואחת מאנשי הדור…

“The Nosi of our generation — the Yosef in our generation — who “did not die”, like Yaakov Avinu (“these are the descendants of Yaakov, Yosef”), as is known that “Nosi” is composed of the initial letters of the phrase “A spark of Yaakov Avinu”, and through the hiskashrus (connection) and the bittul (self-nullification) to the Nosi of the generation, this [aspect of Yaakov Avinu who did not die] is drawn down into every single member of our generation…”

Q: Should I understand that the Rebbe is telling me that my own personal hiskashrus and bittul to the Nosi is what draws down his eternal life (חיים נצחיים) to every single Yid in the generation?!

Hard to support such an understanding.

Perhaps the intention that each one, through his own hiskashrus and bittul to the Nosi draws down eternal life (חיים נצחיים) to himself.

Maybe.

Perhaps a more correct reading is that the hiskashrus and bittul of the Rebbe himself to his Nossi (the Frierdicker Rebbe, who “did not die”) is what is drawing down eternal life (חיים נצחיים) to every single Yid in the generation!
