This Year Will Be Different

The summer is quickly fading away. Days are getting shorter, nights are a lot cooler and the leaves have begun their beautiful transformation. Indeed, it’s that time of year again – the “head” of the year is around the corner. On Rosh HaShanah, not only is our annual income predetermined, but our very lives hang in the balance. We say in the stirring prayer U’Netaneh Tokef: “On Rosh Hashanah will be inscribed and on Yom Kippur...

The Promise of Victory

Are you happy with your life? Do you feel like you’ve always made the right choices and are proud of everything you’ve done? If you could turn back the clock, would you do everything the same way? Or maybe you wouldn’t mind getting a fresh start or at least a partial reset? Preparing for Rosh HaShanah, the Day of Judgment, involves a great deal of introspection. (If you haven’t started yet, now may be a good time!) Naturally, as we...

Battle Strategy

Walking the streets of Israel, one of the most common expressions you’ll hear is “B’seder.” This is generally equivalent to the way we would say, “OK.” However, in Israel, this expression has taken on a panoply of different meanings. “Would you like to meet for coffee at 10?” “B’seder.” “How are you feeling today?” “B’seder.” “You cut my place in line – that’s NOT b’seder.” Sometimes someone will even say, “B’seder gamur,” which means...

Why Do We Sin?

Why Do We Sin?

Yes, it’s that time of year again. Elul is upon us, and considering that we are seriously aspiring to engage in teshuvah (return to God), it may be high time to ask this fundamental question. You’re probably thinking the simple answer is that we sin because we just don’t care, or at least we lack sufficient interest to do what the Torah deems proper. Wrong! Shockingly, Reb Noson says that the majority of our wrongdoing actually comes...

What Is Elul?

For those who have studied in Yeshiva, just the sound of the word Elul is enough to send a chill down your spine. It is said that in the days of old, when the month of Elul was announced in communities throughout Europe (on the proceeding Shabbat), many would faint from fear. If one takes a quick glance at the laws and customs pertaining to Elul, we learn we should recite more Tehilim, refrain from certain activities that although...

Striking It Rich!

Wealth is something that most people spend their days dreaming about. But how does one actually become wealthy? In 1999 the executive chairman of Google (then the CEO of Novell), Eric Schmidt, said in an interview with Forbes: “Lots of people who are smart and work hard and play by the rules don’t have a fraction of what I have.” Schmidt acknowledged that the scale of inequality generated by the new wealth “makes me uncomfortable.”...

This Way to the Treasure

A man once dreamed that there was a great treasure under a bridge in Vienna. He traveled to Vienna and stood near the bridge, trying to figure out what to do. He did not dare search for the treasure by day, because of the many people who were there. An officer passed by and asked, “What are you doing, standing here and contemplating?” The man decided that it would be best to tell the whole story and ask for help, hoping that [the...

Send A Spiritual Protective Edge To An IDF Soldier

A few days ago, we were contacted by the amazing people at NuCampaign.org. They give out t-shirts to the soldiers with a messages printed on them expressing our love and appreciation for their remarkable service. Sown inside of them is a line from Psalms – “Shamereini Keyl Ki Chasisi Vach” – “Protect me God, for I take refuge in You”. They realized that this was the first verse in Rebbe Nachman’s Tikkun HaKlali and decided that...

Time to Rebuild

If someone were to curse and totally demean you,wouldn’t it seem strange if they told you moments later how great they are going to make you? Well then, take a look at what’s going on: First, the prophet Amos informs us that God compares the Jews to Cushites, saying, “Are you not like the children of the Cushites to me, O children of Israel?” (Amos 9:7) Comparing us to Cushites wasn’t exactly a compliment. The Cushites...

Breslov Tisha B’Av Message

A king once told his prime minister, who was also his good friend, “I see in the stars that whoever eats any grain that grows this year will go mad. What is your advice?” The prime minister replied, “We must put aside enough grain so that we will not have to eat from this year’s harvest.” The king objected, “But then we will be the only ones who will be sane. Everyone else will be mad. Therefore, they will think that we are the mad...

The Best Kind of Criticism

Have you recently been criticized or rebuked? Did you find those words to be helpful? Did they initiate any positive change in your behavior? For most people, criticism makes them feel hurt and put down. And when we rebuke others, we often don’t see any change and, even more likely, a spiteful reaction. Although there is a great mitzvah to rebuke (see Leviticus 19:17), most people are not capable of fulfilling this mitzvah properly....
