Among the most exciting moments in this process of Redemption is watching the pieces come together. Anyone can do this. (You don't have to be a prophet!) Just by being an observer of the human scene,...current events, talk radio, internet news and daily experiences,--all this can be eye-opening about how the Rebbe's prophecy is being fulfilled.

Adding in goodness and kindness: CEO disguises himself as an employee and finds new empathy for his workers.

"Just because you're thirsty doesn't mean the person next to you is. He may be hungry." So said the Lubavitcher Rebbe in a public address, teaching how to think about helping someone else. In the story below, the CEO of a company disguised himself as an employee, and in so doing, learned a lot about those working for him. In the end he not only was able to help some individuals, but gave everyone a raise. This is a story about a man who learned the art of giving, and in the process, connected more deeply with himself.

But for the CEO, posing as “Tom Kelly” was an eye-opening experience. Yellen, who typically has taken his recent fame from the show and Emmy nomination with humility, said he learned a great deal from going undercover and plans to change the way he relates to his employees.
