How to achieve true unity?

By the grace of G-d

Shalom uBrocha!
Ever since I posted the Rebbe's recent answer thru Igrot Koidesh about the importance of unity within Chabad I was deluged with questions what do I think Rebbe King Moshiach Shlit"a means by unity.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words so I have (Thank G-d!)stumbled upon a picture that is a perfect illustration of unity within Chabad.

With a Glenlivet box serving as a backdrop, Rabbi Yoel Kahan and Rabbi Hillel Pevzner share a laugh at the Pevzner-Wilhelm wedding Wednesday night in Oholei Torah.

Judging by their public statements Rabbi Kahan and Rabbi Pevzner would be on the opposite sides of a "theological spectrum" within Chabad as far as publicizing the identity of Moshiach is concerned.

bellow is a quote about the activities of Rabbi Pevzner (and everyone knows that Rabbi Kahan spoke publicly many times giving different opinion about these issues):

The Chabad community in Paris is preparing for Gimmel Tammuz, when its members will participate in a day of inspiration and hiskashrus to the Rebbe Melech HaMoshiach. It will include a series of activities, mivtzoyim and farbrengens called "24 Hours with the Rebbe." The program will be conducted within the spirit of the belief in the eternal physical existence of the leader of the generation, in accordance with the rulings of Rabbi Hillel Pevzner and it will not include anything that is not in accordance with this belief. The programs will take place in the Sinai educational campus. Rabbi Yosef Yitzchok Pevzner, director of the educational institutions in Sinai, Heichal Menachem and Kitov, is the driving force behind the programs."

Yet, look at the photo above, look at their smiling faces picture of true Chassidic unity and love of ones fellow Jew.
I call upon the readers of my blog and the authors of other Chabad blogs to follow the example of our Mashpiim and try as much as possible to treat each other with great love and respect (without giving up ones point of view but finding ways to express it in loving and respectful way as is befitting Chabad Chassidim.)May each of us learn Lev haTanya (Tanya chapter 32) by heart and always keep it in mind.
And may this nullify the cause of golus and lead to complete and final redemption.

With respect and blessing:

Rabbi Kentor: Toys for Tsunami Victim - Children leads and 7 Noachide Laws

Rabbi Yosef Chaim Kentor, chief shliach and chief Rabbi of Thailand, was the guest of the 'Kol Hashishi' program on the Kol Chai radio. Rabbi Kentor spoke of a special fundraising evening for Tsunami victims, held this week attended by Rabbi Shlomo Amar - chief Rabbi of Israel.

Kentor said that Chabad of Thailand decided to distribute new toys to children whose homes perished with the Tsunami waves, and in this way, to integrate an awareness of the seven Noachide law. Kentor continued to say that children of Jewish schools all over the world have collected the toys that have been handed out to unfortunate children in Thailand. This is one of the many activities of Chabad in Thailand among the local residents and among Israeli tourists

הרב קנטור עם ילדים תאילנדים ניצולי אסון הצונמי

הרב יוסף-חיים קנטור, השליח הראשי של חב"ד והרב הראשי בתאילנד, היה אורח הפינה הקבועה של ראיון עם שליח חב"ד, בתכנית "קול שישי", בהנחיית אסף נגל, ברדיו "קול חי". הרב קנטור סיפר על ערב ההתרמה המיוחד שנערך השבוע, בהשתתפות הרב הראשי לישראל הרב שלמה עמאר, למען נפגעי הצונאמי.

לדבריו, חב"ד בתאילנד החליטה להעניק צעצועים חדשים לילדים שבתיהם נשטפו באסון הצונאמי, ובדרך זו להנחיל לאוכלוסייה המקומית את הערכים המגולמים בשבע מצוות בני-נוח. הוא סיפר כי ילדים בבתי-ספר יהודיים בעולם אוספים את הצעצועים, והם מעבירים אותם לילדים. כל זה, כמובן, בנוסף לפעילות הענפה עם היהודים ובעיקר במטיילים הישראלים.
