Feeling Homesick

I don’t know about you, but this summer has been especially challenging. Living in Lakewood, NJ, I am not too far from the Jersey Shore. As I look out my window on a warm, sunny day, I observe the cars going to and fro, the drivers blasting music and seemingly having a carefree time. I turn on the radio and hear yet another news report condemning Israeli aggression and reporting the latest sum of rockets fired on Israel, new...

How We Can Bring Mashiach

  We think of Moses as being the ultimate prophet, someone who spoke “face to face” with God and stood between Heaven and earth. Therefore we assume that when he experienced a prophecy, its message and interpretation were obvious to him. Indeed, in this week’s parashah Moses states, “This is the word that God has commanded” (Numbers 30:2). Rashi explains that only Moses was able to say “this,” describing the vision that God had...

An Interesting Gematria: Iron Dome

Over the last few days I have received numerous emails reading something like this: The numerical value of “Kipat HaBarzel” (the Hebrew translation of the Iron Dome missile protection system) is equal to 749. The ten chapters of Psalms included in Rebbe Nachman’s Tikkun HaKlali also equal exactly 749 (16,32,41,42,59,77,90,105,137,150). According to Rebbe Nachman’s tale, the 7 Beggars, in the merit of the ten...

Recapture the Flag!

The Jewish people have never lacked enemies. Just as we are attacked today by terrorists, so too, in the days of Moses, our enemies constantly schemed and planned our destruction. However, in the days of Moses, our nation was one worthy of prophecy – ours was a nation that witnessed the Ten Plagues in Egypt and the Giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai. Because of our elevated spiritual status, our enemies were not brazen enough to...

The Lost Princess – Back In Print

We are excited to announce that we have reprinted our beautifully illustrated children’s book, “The Lost Princess.” Rebbe Nachman of Breslov was truly one of the most masterful storytellers of  all time. “Others tell stories to put people to sleep,” he said, “but I tell stories to wake  people up!” Sometimes simple, sometimes intricate, yet always spellbinding, educational and inspirational, Rebbe  Nachman’s tales...

SHOCKING! People Like Pain?

SHOCKING! People Like Pain?

According to a study carried out by the University of Virginia and published in the journal “Science”, most people – including 65% of men, would rather experience pain, then being forced to sit alone in private thought. The study found that even older people responded similarly. A broad selection of people of all backgrounds, ranging in age from 18 to 77, were asked to sit alone in a room without a cell phone or reading material...

We are in pain. We are in sorrow.  The Jewish People is connected – we are truly one. Because of this, we each personally feel the horrifying loss of our three dear and precious brothers. When describing this month of Tammuz, Rebbe Nachman teaches, “The first letters of ‘Zikhru Torat Moshe (remember Moshe’s Torah)’ (Malachi 3:22) spell TaMmuZ without the vav. This is because in the month of Tammuz we must elicit mindfulness in order...

Wake Up!

Unable to control himself, the viceroy plucked an apple from the tree and took a bite. As soon as he swallowed it, he fell to the ground in a deep sleep and slept a long, long time. The viceroy’s servant tried to wake him up, but he couldn’t. Rebbe Nachman’s first tale, “The Lost Princess,” is a fascinating recounting of the story of our lives. Being such, it incites us to ask a critical question: “Do I truly possess absolute...

The other day I was introduced to a successful businessman who was interested in studying Breslov Chassidut together. In order to get know each other, we shared our backgrounds, and he said something that has stuck in my mind ever since. My newfound chavruta explained that although his wife and children were making headway in their spiritual journeys, his growth was stunted and even retarded because he enjoyed the pleasures that his...

The Missing Link

“In the place where returnees to Judaism stand, even completely righteous Tzaddikim cannot stand” (Berakhot 34b). Wow! Our Rabbis are implying that the returnee is greater than the saint. But shouldn’t one who has spent his entire life in the service of God, and never really faltered, be considered supreme in every aspect? How could there be a “place” reserved for one who has erred? This question is as old as the universe. You see,...

The Power Of Free Choice

After centuries of bondage, the poor Israelite slaves emerge victorious and triumphant over their Egyptian taskmasters. Making their way through the desert, they approach Mount Sinai and the ultimate purpose of Creation, where the lowest of the low rise to become God’s chosen people. Moses delivers God’s question to the Hebrews: “Will you accept the Torah and thereby become a treasure among the nations?” They answer, “All that God has...

The drive down from the hills of Jerusalem to Ben Gurion Airport is a lonely one. After having been privileged to travel to the Land of Israel and bask in its holiness for a few days, it isn’t so easy to depart and return to “normal life.” Thankfully, I remembered that I had a precedent. Reb Noson once traveled to be with Rebbe Nachman, but because of the opposition of his family at that time, the Rebbe told him, “To you we must say,...
