Peace process

January 19, 2011

א”ר אלכסנדרי כל העוסק בתורה לשמה משים שלום בפמליא של מעלה
ובפמליא של מטה שנאמר או יחזק במעוזי יעשה שלום לי שלום יעשה לי
:סנהדרין צט

Someone can sit quietly in a corner and learn Torah thereby bringing peace to the whole world.

Proximity

January 18, 2011

המברך את עמו ישראל בשלום

The closer we are to Hashem the more we merit to have peace and unity.

The purpose of the Torah

January 14, 2011

היה לפניו נר ביתו ונר חנוכה או נר ביתו וקדוש היום נר ביתו קודם
משום שלום ביתו שהרי השם נמחק לעשות שלום בין איש לאשתו
גדול השלום שכל התורה ניתנה לעשות שלום בעולם שנאמר
דרכיה דרכי נעם וכל נתיבותיה שלום
רמב”ם חנוכה פ”ד הל’ י”ד

Peace and unity are fundamental Torah principles and ingrained in the essence of Shabbos.

Be careful

December 31, 2010

לעולם לא יעשו הגוים רעה אלא אם כן יעשו ישראל רעה ביניהם זה לזה
ספר חסידים  ק”ט

We have to be extra vigilant not to hurt another Yid in any way. Peace and unity are also great means to bring about the full redemption.

Harmony

ברכנו אבינו כלנו כאחד באור פניך

We can only be united if we merit Hashem’s illumination through full and complete Emuna.

ואברכה מברכיך

 A Kesiva ve-Chasima Tova to all of Emuna Tidbits readership.
May you and your families have a sweet year of physical and spiritual abundance.
May we all merit to see the full redemption very soon.

כאיש אחד בלב אחד

May 18, 2010

Let’s prepare for Kabolas Hatorah by forming a bond of unity with every Yid. Forgiving any hurt or slight and viewing every Yid in a positive light.

Most important issue

April 13, 2010

וחכמים אומרים לא לרחק ולא לקרב אלא לעשות שלום בעולם
שנאמר ‘הנה אנכי שולח לכם את אליה הנביא’ וגומר
‘והשיב לב אבות על בנים ולב בנים על אבותם’
‘עדיות פ”ח ז

The Ramabam explains that everyone agrees that Eliyohu will correct the most important issue; they just argue what it is. The majority holds that making peace is the most important issue. Through living in peace we make the world ready for the final redemption.

Make a difference

December 7, 2009

When you greet a person and bless him it could make a very big difference. The Gemora in Nedorim 8A says that a greeting from ten people protects from strife.

Love your fellow as yourself

October 26, 2009

By viewing one’s body with scorn and contempt, and finding joy in the joy of the soul alone is a direct and easy path toward fulfilling the mitzvah, “You shall love your fellow as yourself,” with regard to every Yid both great and small — in spiritual stature. Since his body is despised and loathsome he will not love himself on account of his body more than he loves his fellow; and as for the soul and spirit, the differences between his own soul and that of his fellow surely will not diminish the love between them, for who can know the soul and spirit’s greatness and excellence in their source and root — the living Hashem?
How, then, can one claim that his soul is superior to his fellow’s? Furthermore, they are actually all equal; and not only equal yet separate, but, furthermore, they all have one father — one source, and within their source they all comprise one entity.
It is on account of this common root in the One Hashem that all of Yiden are called “brothers” — in the full sense of the word, only the bodies are distinct from each other.
