Day By Day

So, do you feel free? Although our stomachs may be feeling like a gigantic matzah ball right now, spiritually our minds have soared to great heights. On Seder night, not only were our ancestors released from captivity, but our own souls were also redeemed. But the freedom we received was of the miraculous sort, and as great as miracles are, they have limited results. In Egypt we were on the lowest of spiritual levels – number 49 – and...

We Have Had Enough! Dayeinu!

In a few hours, after days of preparations, cleaning and cooking, we will finally sit down and begin to recite the Haggadah. We will retell the story of our persecution and exile and of our miraculous deliverance and freedom. At the climax of this story, we begin to sing joyously, “diydiy-einu; diydiy-einu; diydiy-einu; diyeinu – diyeinu! The Dayeinu song goes on to describe our thankfulness for the many wondrous deeds and miracles...

Freedom For All!

Freedom For All!

“The land of the free and the home of the brave.” If I wouldn’t know that these words were part of the national anthem, I might think they were sung at the Pesach Seder! After all, on Pesach we celebrate our freedom from servitude – something only achieved by acting brave and courageous. Our ancestors in Egypt didn’t have it easy. Forced to do backbreaking labor, men were also made to do women’s work and women to do jobs typically...

Q: Freeing The Lost Princess

Q: I read the story and then remembered having tried to tackle it before in the BRI book, ‘Rabbi Nachman’s Stories’. I had little success understanding the message except allegorically. The ending of ‘no end’, is totally confusing. I think if I read the commentary, some of it will come together, but what burst my bubble in the commentary was the statement in the very beginning, ‘This story is one of...

Once in a Lifetime

“The Architect of the world never does the same thing twice. Every day is an entirely new creation” – Reb Noson of Breslov. People like to say, “Today is a new day.” There’s actually an incredible amount of wisdom in that expression. That’s because we have a tendency to view time as one complete unit, and therefore we get caught up in the past. If yesterday was a “bad” day, it means today doesn’t have much of a chance. Truth be told,...

Coming Clean

Jerry pays his boss a short visit and says, “We’re doing some major Passover housecleaning tomorrow and my wife needs me around to take care of the heavy hauling.” “I’m so sorry, Jerry, we’re kind of short-handed right now and I just can’t afford to have you take the day off,” his boss answers. “Thanks, Boss, Jerry replies. “I knew I could count on you!” Have you begun cleaning for Pesach yet? I’m sure you have. When this time of year...

Why Is Breslov So Repetative?

Q: I’m seeking to find my way and hope you may be able to point me in the right direction. Brief background: I’m about to turn 68, retired, and became a Baal Teshuvah 14 yrs ago. Being a late starter in Orthodoxy and watching life’s clock seemingly speeding up more and more every day, in an effort to learn some many things I’ve mastered absolutely nothing. In 2005, I was introduced to Breslov Chassidus, and...

The Spice of Life

“It’s all your fault!” Since the days of Adam and Eve, men have always found a convenient “explanation” for their problems: blame the spouse. The problem for Nadav and Avihu, Aaron’s two unwedded sons who brought an unauthorized incense-offering (ketoret) and were punished with death, was that they didn’t have one to blame. The Midrash explains that the reason they were killed was because they had no wives (Vayikra Rabbah 20:8-10)....

And The King Extended His Golden Scepter

OK, so we were spared. And for over 2000 years, Jews have celebrated the holiday of Purim. But what’s so special about Purim? Haven’t we seen innumerable villains rise up against us, trying to destroy our nation? Don’t we declare in the Passover Haggadah every year, “In every generation, they rise against us to annihilate us, but the Holy One, blessed be He, saves us from their hand”? Furthermore, we celebrate Passover because the...

The Poor Man’s Offering

One of the greatest gifts that Chassidic teachings impart to us is the ability to illuminate and make relevant all parts of Torah, even the seemingly obscure ones. The teachings of Rebbe Nachman and Reb Noson make the Torah come alive, helping us find answers and life advice in verses of the Torah that cynics claim are irrelevant and archaic. These incredible teachings reinforce our belief in the profound depth and truth of the Torah...
