In The Know

Knowledge, wisdom, education … these are the cornerstones of a typical Jewish upbringing. Almost as soon as a Jewish baby is born, his or her parents have already established a college fund. This reminds me of a joke: A Jewish mother is walking down the street with her two little boys. A passerby sees the children and remarks, “What adorable children you have. How old are they?” The proud mother replies, “The doctor is seven and...

Striking It Rich

What if I told you that I know the secret to accumulating wealth? I bet you’d want to be my friend. Doesn’t the prospect of gaining this elusive knowledge get you a tad bit excited? But what if I told you that it’s available to each of us? Impossible, you might say. But that would be your mistake. God promised Abraham that his children would descend to Egypt as slaves, but would eventually be redeemed with great wealth. In fact, this...

Getting The Message

Negative emotions are extremely powerful and often completely debilitating. In fact, nothing has the ability to stunt our spiritual growth and life satisfaction like negativity. It’s essential for us to take the initiative to learn about ourselves and evaluate our reactions when dealing with such emotions. With Rebbe Nachman’s guidance, we can transform these emotions into great tools. Let’s deal with fear. Like everything else in the...

Good To Go!

Do I deserve to be redeemed? Do I deserve to be saved by God? We often ask ourselves this question, whether consciously or subconsciously. Consider: The average person has 60,000 thoughts a day. Shockingly, 95 percent of them are repeated daily and 80 percent of those thoughts are negative. We tend to judge ourselves overwhelmingly negatively, and that’s why we can question whether we are worthy of God’s attention and ultimate...

How Do We Redeem Ourselves?

I woke up this morning after another restless night. With an achy back, stuffy nose and aggressive cough, I wished I could stay in bed under the warm covers. After getting dressed and finally getting all the kids on their way, I opened the front door and was besieged by the freezing cold wind. I got into my frost-covered car and waited patiently as it heated up. Couldn’t I live in a nice, warm climate, or at least be able to take some...

Light in the Darkness

Sunday, December 21, was the official “winter solstice” – aka the shortest day of the year. Although summer isn’t quite yet around the corner, we have already lived through the greatest darkness. It was no coincidence that this took place during Chanukah. At the end of the month of Kislev, as the moon is at its smallest phase and the nights are so very long, we dared to light the menorah and demonstrate that God’s light is with us,...

Mission Impossible

It’s literally the world’s oldest argument. Before Creation, God consulted with the angels, asking their opinion of His new enterprise. They argued against it: “What is man that You should remember him?” (Psalms 8:5). When God desired to give us His holy Torah, once again the angels countered, “Leave the Torah with us and we will properly honor and cherish it!” (Shabbat 88b). Thank goodness, God chose not to side with them then,...

Th Silver Lining

When it rains, it pours. It often happens this way: first you have one problem, then another comes up, then a third… Before you know it, you feel completely overburdened, as if you can’t even breathe. You imagine all of the world’s issues being lumped together and heaped on your shoulders. But it gets even worse. Our typical reaction to feeling overwhelmed is to hibernate in a state of utter disconnect. We cut ourselves off from...

The Rebbe’s Letter

Every week, a few Breslov friends and I get together to discuss life in the light of Rebbe Nachman’s teachings. Recently, while schmoozing, one friend asked the following question: “Which Breslov teaching would you choose to share with a close friend who has yet to taste from the wellsprings of Rebbe Nachman’s Torah?” There seemed to be an almost unanimous agreement, something odd for a group of Chassidim who are each so unique. The...
