ירושלמי שקלים פ"ב ה"ה
could you get a better copy of that? with the beginning and end. who was the author?

It must have taken place in 1952 since it states that he was the newly crowned Rebbe.Isaac - that makes two of us.
Who says it was meant to be a chiddush, just thought it was well put.
The last Lubavitcher Rebbe and the chassidism following him, used the phrase "America is no different" to represent his father-in-law's whole accomplishment and what he stood for. I don't any see anything great in those words.
Its actually more that America is different (from ghettoized Russia) , and the ability to sort of assimilate the culture w/o being assimilated - that I think is so facinating about Chabad.
