Chassidic FireWhen Reb Zusia and Reb Levi Yitzchak read the Tanya for the first time –separately, each in his own home – they were so inspired,that they felt compelled to tell each other about this amazing Chassidic work.

This wasn’t the only bird’s nest we saw in recent weeks. Cornell is also lucky enough to be home to a red-tailed hawk that has made her nest on the cliff of one of the gorges.
