Rebbe Nachman says, “No!”

Hold On! Precious Moments Meshivat Nefesh #47 Rebbe Nachman taught: “Sometimes there are people who draw closer to Hashem for a certain amount of time and, afterward, they fall away again. Even so, their temporary period of greater closeness is very precious to Hashem, even if afterward whatever happened, happened, G-d forbid.” This short teaching always [...]

The Blessings Of Tu B’Shevat

The Talmud (Taanis 8b) instructs us that when a person enters the barn to measure the new grain crop he should say the blessing: May it be Your will Lord our God, that You send blessing on the work of our hands. Then he begins to measure and says: Blessed be He who sends blessing into this pile of grain. But if [...]

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 [...]

A Second Chance

Do you ever find yourself saying, “I really messed up! I blew it! What a missed opportunity!” Those negative emotions plant themselves in our brains and nag at us constantly, especially at this time of year. We’ve just finished observing Pesach and rediscovering that we are a Godly People. We realized that we’re not really [...]

A New Day, A New Way

Imagine one morning you open the newspaper and see the following headline: Pope Decides to Convert to Judaism. Wouldn’t that be something else? But actually, this has a precedent. Yitro was the Pope of Midian. He served every conceivable idol before deciding to convert to Judaism. In fact, the Baal HaTurim states that the numerical [...]

Holding On And Holding Strong

Just wanted to share some powerful anecdotes which can possibly help each of us hold on throughout the trials of life, until we gain the upper hand: -The greatest comfort in life is to know that you tried your best. Once you reach this point, all that's left to do is to simply thank Hashem [...]

Suicide? No, thanks.

Suicide? No, thanks.

Suicide? No, thanks. I prefer Torah. I can’t tell you any statistics about how many people do or don’t ever think about committing suicide, or plan or attempt it. And anyway, it would be beside the point. We know suicide is bad. First of all, the family, friends and even acquaintances of the suicide feel [...]

The Silent Scream

Well, apropos of life in general and The Three Weeks in particular, I want to share Rabbeinu zal's teaching about the kol demamah dakah, the small, silent voice. (Yes, I know I translate it differently later.) This will be new to some and a review for others. It's a good tool to have and a [...]
