God Is Right Here

A Sacred Time – Teves #5 The Sefer Yetzirah—possibly the Jewish mystical text of earliest origin—reveals that the letter associated with the month of Tevet is ayin. The letter ayin has a numerical value of seventy. There are seventy facets to every aspect of Torah. Rebbe Nachman teaches that the seventy facets of Torah counter the negative influence of the seventy original, root nations. Tevet is known to be a very difficult...

Holy Chutzpah!

The three letters that form the month of Tevet—tet, vav, tav—are an acronym for, “tireh tov b’chaverchah”—“see the good in your friend.” Reb Nosson explains that most of us have a hard time when we see a friend do wrong since we can’t understand how a person with so many positive qualities could have blown it so badly. We need to reverse direction and start by focusing on the error. Clearly, when a person makes a bad mistake it...

Shining A Light

The tenth day of Teves is a public fast commemorating the passing of Ezra the scribe, the siege of the walls of Jerusalen and the translation of the Torah into Greek. It is also the day that Reb Nosson of Breslov passed away. Rebbe Nachman explained that a fast has the power to transform spiritual darkness into light. By fasting, we loosen the hold that the body has over us and allow the soul to shine more brightly. Rebbe Nachman...

The Light of Gratitude

The final days of Chanukah always fall out during the beginning of the month of Tevet. The last day is known as Zot Chanukah, “this is Chanukah,” since it is the culmination of the many rectifications of this precious holiday. The Oneg Shabbat explains that by the final day of Chanukah we have lit the Chanukah lights for the final time that year. All that remains is for us to thank and praise the Almighty, which fills our entire year...

Nothing Is By Chance

It is customary on Chanukah to play dreidel. A dreidel is a kind of top with four sides that has different Hebrew letters inscribed on each side. The four letters are nun, gimel, hei and shin. This is an acronym for “nes gadol hayah sham”—“A great miracle occurred there.” This alludes to the miracle of the menorah in the second Temple. Although the Maccabees clearing through the devastation of the sacked Temple only found one day’s...
