Why the Round Menorah?

In 1982 the Rebbe stated that the round Menorah is NOT the real shape of the original Menorah * Furthermore, round branched Menorahs represent the dominance of Golus over Jews * So why the round Menorah?

Drunk driver damages multiple vehicles
One of the damaged vehicles
A 16 year old teen was arrested late last night for drunk driving and a hit and run. The incident took place in the service lane of Eastern Parkway across the street from 770. At approximately 2 A.M. a Lincoln Towncar side swiped six parked vehicles including at least one owned by a Jew, before getting wedged into a parking space. Just before the drunken driver realized that he will be stuck, he hit the gas pedal instead of the brake, revving his engine and causing more damage. Bochurim at the scene then saw him exit his car and slowly begin to limp away. Unsure of what needs to be done, they walked towards him. Upon noticing the bochurim, the driver began to run, in pursuit, the bochurim caught up to him in front of Ohelei Torah, where they held him until multiple NYPD and Shmira units arrived and arrested him.

Some more stories from the RARA trail
Hi everyone,

We're back again with some more stories from the RARA trail. So this time round we're writing to you from the safety of our motel room, trying to ride out the storm that is happening here in Toowoomba. We have never seen a storm like this in our lives. The drive we just took back from Dr F's house was probably one of the scariest things we have done so far. The fog was so thick that even with the brights on we could hardly see 3 feet ahead of us. The roads were so flooded - the water was coming up to the tank window, and that's not including the thunder and lightning that was lighting up the sky making it look like midday. But when it all comes down to it that's what RARA is all about: no matter the risk or the conditions we hold by the RARA moto of "If there is a Jew, we will travel!"

Prosecutor: Rubashkin Will Flee If Released
A federal prosecutor warned Wednesday that if a judge releases Sholom Rubashkin from jail, the former Agriprocessors executive could quickly flee to Israel. The risk of flight here is acute, its too great, Assistant U.S. Attorney Peter Deegan said in court. But Rubashkins lawyer said his client is tightly tied to his family and the community of Postville, where he ran the packing plant for years. The lawyer, Baruch Weiss, added that Israel has a strong extradition agreement with the United States. Even if he somehow could get to Israel after surrendering his U.S. passport, Weiss said, Rubashkin surely would be sent back. With these sorts of charges, he will not find a home in Israel, and he knows that.
