What Happens When You Step On Molten Lava

As lava courses through Hawaii’s Big Island towards a shopping centre, residents are making plans to keep well out of its way. But what happens if you are faced with the prospect of walking on lava? On a holiday to Kilauea in Hawaii, neuroscientist Alex Rivest decided to find out, when his tour guide offered to tread into a pool of scorching molten rock.

Lava is around 700 to 1,200 °C (1,292 to 2,192 °F) when it emerges from a volcano and then makes its way to the path of least resistance. The tour guide’s boot is shown to make a small impression, sparking a flame which bounced off the surface.

While this may not be surprising (it is liquid rock), I think that many people think of lava as more of a hot-watery-like substance,’ said Mr Rivest who is originally from Massachusetts. ‘You would never fall into a lava lake the way you would a swimming pool, the molten rock is much more dense, so you would simply land on it, sink a little, and be burned.

When a Young Chabad Shliach Felt All Alone

All those going as emissaries of Merkos L'Inyonei Chinuch must know that my father-in-law, the Rebbe, is together with them. Not merely "a part of him," but the Rebbe's "entire self" is accompanying every single one of them.
​- The Lubavitcher Rebbe, 12 Tammuz, 5710

​First person stories and a talk from the The Lubavitcher Rebbe expressing his unbreakable bond with his Shluchim, no matter how distant the physical location of their Shlichus.

Mizmor Shir Chanukkas Habayis Ledovid -Viznitz

A Viznitzer song which was sung after lighting the Chanukah Menorah. Performed by eight musicians, most of them with Viznitz roots, who gathered together to sing the beautiful Viznitzer Negunim which are not all that well known by the general public.

The Muskal brothers, may have left the Viznitzer Chasidic community where they grew up,  but they did leave its Negunim. Each of them took the melodies with him on their life journey. A video of stories and songs.
