Post-Purim Triumpth & Survival

In life, before every climb there must be a fall. The depth and darkness of the proceeding fall is determined according to the height and benefit of the future ascent. We see this when observing the Purim miracle. Since Purim brought about great light and miracles experienced until today, it is no wonder that Haman/Amalek posed such a severe threat to the continuity of Jewish existence. Reb Noson teaches that every miracle and...

Sacred Time: It’s Never Too Late – Adar 7

Adar 7 It’s Never Too Late “…And they made it a day of feasting and joy.” (Esther 9:18) Rebbe Nachman’s daughter Sarah got married in Medvedevka right after Purim. Reb Nosson made the long journey to Medvedevka for the wedding, only arriving toward the end of Purim. After a very trying journey, he was so exhausted that he really couldn’t rejoice as one should on the holiday. Although he had made it in time to...

Joy–Your Spiritual Task

To find joy is the hardest thing of all. It is harder than all other spiritual tasks…Put all your energy into being happy. — Rebbe Nachman of Breslov The Rebbe tells us that, if need be, we should force ourselves to be happy. Of course, this advice is not politically correct. From today’s psychological viewpoint, forcing yourself to be happy is wrong. It’s denial. Better to be miserable, say the experts. In some...

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...

Sacred Time: Saving The Crumbs – Adar 6

Adar 6 Saving the Crumbs   The word Purim can also indicate peirurim, or crumbs. The verse states, “Por hitporerah ha’aretz…”–“The earth is crumbled to pieces…” (Yeshayah 24:19) Even though, in its context, the verse speaks of devastation, it also has a hidden meaning about how it is possible to repair the situation. We fix ourselves and our “crumbled” world with the crumbs of good...

A Thought For The Week: Purim

Purim is a golden opportunity to see major miracles and breakthroughs in life. The Magid of Mezritch (the main disciple of the Baal Shem Tov) teaches that just as Torah law requires us to give charity and gifts to anyone who asks for them on Purim, so too does this apply between man and God. Whoever extends their hands in prayer/request towards Hashem, He must also give! Because of all this, the spiritual and emotional preparations...

Purim Is Around The Corner

Purim Is Around The Corner

Today is exactly 40 days before Purim. This is very exciting since Purim in Chassidic teachings is considered the climax of the entire year. As Rebbe Nachman hinted, now all beginnings are from Purim. This is in line with the Talmudic teaching that all Festivals will cease to be in the future except for Purim. This is so since, opposed to the Festivals that commemorate the exodus from Egypt which took place with open miracles, the...

The Real McCoy

“The people said to Aharon, ‘Make us a god who will lead us because this man Moses, who took us up from Egypt—we don’t know what happened to him’” (Exodus 32:1). I’m often asked about the importance of having a rebbe. I’m also asked what is a rebbe. What does it mean to have one? How does one go about looking for a rebbe, and how does one know when he’s found his rebbe? (I’m asked a lot of questions!) Let’s try to begin to answer...

Where is Amalek today?

For those of us who have been keeping up with the news, there has been much talk about the symbolism of Iran, Saudia Arabia and Americaand the potential for nuclear crisis. Many have pointed out the Midrash (Yalkut Shimoni, Yeshaya 59) that states in reference to the war of Gog and Magog: Rabbi Yitzchak said: At the time of the revelation of the Mashiach, the kings of all the nations challenge one another. The king of Persia [possibly...

Dvar Torah for Purim

Dvar Torah for Purim Based on Likutey Halakhot, Reishis HaGez 3 After Haman is hanged we are told, “The wrath of the King/king subsided” (Esther 7:10) . We know the rule, that when Megilat Esther uses the expression “the king” without the mention of any name, the King—God—is meant, and also Achashveirosh. The Maharal of Prague asks why it is necessary to mention that Achashveirosh’s anger subsided. He answers that Achashveirosh,...
