How do we do it?

September 30, 2009

שויתי ה’ לנגדי תמיד הוא כלל גדול בתורה
‘רמ”א או”ח סי’ א’ א

The Rema is revealing to us how to be able to fulfill all the laws of the Shulchan Oruch. The more a person is attached to Hashem the more Hashem helps him keep every detail. A person’s main effort is to be always attached to Hashem.

True desire

September 29, 2009

כי רגע באפו חיים ברצונו

Even when Hashem displays momentarily anger His true desire is to bestow life.

Help to do Teshuva

September 25, 2009

נושא עון ופשע וחטאה ונקה

Until we get to do properly Teshuva Hashem carries our sins they should not weigh us down and hamper our Tesheva. Because while a person is entangled with sins it’s very hard to do Teshuva.

The only path

September 24, 2009

ופתחון פה למיחלים לך

We beg Hashem to open our mouths in prayer to Him, because only through prayer we can get close to Hashem.

Happiness

September 23, 2009

The ARI Z”L said that he achieved his level of serving Hashem through the joy and happiness he felt when learning Torah and performing Mitzvot. If you’re still debating which resolution to make for the coming year this is a very joyful one.

What is Teshuva?

September 22, 2009

Rashi in Yuma 85B says that when a person regret their action it’s considered Teshuva.

Revealed compassion

September 21, 2009

אל תסתר פניך ממני

The word ‘פנים’ is referring to Hashem’s compassion. We say that we know that everything Hashem does is only good. But, we beg Hashem not to hide His compassion but to reveal it to us.

The march is on…

September 17, 2009

מלך ממית ומחיה ומצמיח ישועה

Whether Hashem bestows on us what we consider good or if He bestows on us what we consider bad, it is all part of the redemption process. The march towards the redemption is constantly ongoing.

Connection

September 16, 2009

We start pronouncing our love and devotion to Hashem by saying ‘Shema Yisroel’ because without connecting to fellow Yiden we cannot connect to Hashem.

Fear

September 16, 2009

מגורת רשע היא תבואנו ותאות צדיקים יתן
משלי י’ כ”ד

When a person lacks in Emuna and he’s afraid of something beside Hashem, Hashem removes His protection in that area, and the person’s fears are fulfilled. But if a person turns to Hashem and trusts in Him, Hashem provides him all his needs.
