Home Sweet Home

As I write these words, I realize that today, the eve of Thanksgiving, is the busiest travel day of the year. Although it will take many millions of people hours longer than usual to get where they want to go, nevertheless, for the sake of spending time with close friends and family, they feel it’s [...]

What Do You Know?

We live at a time when information is free-flowing and readily available. If you want to know how to fix the leaky sink in the bathroom, google it. Want to finally learn to play guitar or speak French? Google it. Yet Rebbe Nachman teaches that the main knowledge is realizing that you know nothing at [...]

Beyond the Holiday Season

How was your Yom Tov? Mine was wonderful. First I experienced the awesome spiritual heights of being in Uman for Rosh HaShanah … then the solemn uplift of the holiest day of the year, Yom Kippur … then eight joyous days together with my family in the sukkah. What comes next? Besides all the schlepping, [...]

Let in the Light!

Mazel Tov, we have completed the reading of the Torah! Incredibly enough, just a few minutes after finishing a year’s worth of reading, following a small celebration, we begin all over again. In this vein, Rebbe Nachman would always encourage his Chassidim to start afresh and never become accustomed to “regular, everyday life.” We may [...]

Who Are You Doing Teshuvah For?

Life is so incredibly topsy-turvy from the moment you wake up – or the moment you don’t wake up! The kids missed the school bus. Check. The car door was left open and the ignition won’t start. Check.  There was an accident on the highway and traffic is backed up for miles. Check. So often [...]

How Can We Change?

“Be tamim (wholesome or simple) before HaShem your God.” On this verse, Rashi explains that one should conduct himself before God with simplicity, looking to Him dependently. One should accept whatever happens with utter simplicity. Rashi ends with a golden guarantee: “Then you will be together with Him and a part of His portion.” As [...]

Shame On Me! Parashat Re’eh

It’s that time of year again: National Teshuvah Month, aka Chodesh Elul. In “honor” of this special time of year, Breslover Chassidim customarily study Lesson #6 of Rebbe Nachman’s Likutey Moharan. I highly recommend it, as it provides the necessary framework to achieve a real and productive teshuvah. My own recollection of this time period [...]

Time to Rebuild – Shabbat Nachamu

If someone were to curse and totally demean you, wouldn’t it seem strange if he told you moments later how great he is 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 [...]

A Home for G-d – The Three Weeks

What if the Nine Days could be an exciting time of year? I don’t mean a time of partying and celebration, but more along the lines of a meaningful time that we feel grateful for having experienced. Not only does this opportunity exist, but this was certainly the intent of our Sages when they established [...]
