What is Chassidus? Part 9

9. Guard yourself from any speech before praying in the morning because such speech nullifies and ruins the power of concentration and devotion during prayer.

What is Chassidus? Part 8

Hanhagos Ha'Adam from the Rebbe Reb Melech continued...

8. Guard yourself from hating any man except the truly wicked that are clearly known to have no merits whatsoever. Such people whose actions can be favorably judged are to be loved like your own body and soul. Fulfill with them the verse “love your neighbor as yourself.”
