@DoubleAA - I don't understand why you would think that chabad is looking for a successor. Have you heard anything on those lines for the last 20 years or so? That's not by accident. Oh, and R. Yoel was around 20 years ago as well.

+1 The OP asked: who is the closest successor, and Ephraim answered: no one. That's not just an answer, but the only correct one.

comment Lubavitch and Daf Yomi
@ShmuelBrin Good point. I've always taken it for-granted that it was was from Kehos (probably because of the fact that the front cover uses the same cover as the original dvar malchus - with the Kehos logo) - but now that you mention it - I'm not sure. I just looked at a booklet now, and I can't make out who the publisher is. I think I'll edit the Kehos bit out of the answer in the mean time though. Thanks.

comment Why is the Or Hachayim's yahrzeit in Luach Colel Chabad?
The Ohr HaChaim was the leader of the generation before the Baal Shem Tov. It's probably because of his connection with the Baal Shem Tov (for instance the famous story of how the Baal Shem Tov intended to meet with him in Eretz Yisrael) that it's mentioned in the calendar.

comment Who is the last prophet in Judaism?
@msh210 Actually Rambam says this explicitly: see Rambam Hilchot Tshuva Ch 9 Halach2: ... because the king who will arise from David's descendants will be a greater master of knowledge than Solomon and a great prophet, close to the level of Moses, our teacher...
