Parshat Va'etchanan - Shabbos Nachamu

Tisha b'Av is only good if you remember it a little bit longer. If the next day is just the same as it was before, what good is the whole thing? ▪ Remember Who You Are - Be Who You Are ▪ A Free Gift and Being with Hashem ▪ Praying to Pray ▪ Shabbos, The Shema & Tzedakah ▪ Shabbos Nachamu & a Song From Reb Shlomo Remember Who You Are - Be Who You Are Whatever one might say about this parsha would probably be an understatement. In it you will find not only the Ten Commandments and Shma Yisrael, and the mitzvah of Tshuvah and much more. You will find Moshe Rabbeinu speaking to us quite lovingly and even uncompromisingly, exhorting us t

Parshat Devarim – Shabbat Chazon – seeing our destiny

Reb Shlomo on Parshas Devarim- Shabbos Chazon I want to tell you something very very strong. Chazon is always about seeing the future and here Tisha B'Av is to see the past, so someone asked me how does Shabbos Chazon fit in with Tisha B'Av? Strong question. So I answered like this. Everybody knows that the Beis Hamikdash was destroyed because people didn't love each other. What does it mean to not love one another? It means I don't see you, if I hate you I don't see you, simple as it is! So listen to this, everybody knows that the Beis Hamikdash was destroyed on a Saturday night. On the very last Shabbos they were there, they knew the Beis Hamikdash has just a few more minutes to be standin

Tisha B'Av - Inspirational Teachings

TISHA B’AV Tisha b’Av: Begging G-d for intimacy It is possible to do everything G-d wants you to do and not to be intimate with G-d. You know, beautiful friends, Mount Sinai is where G-d told us what to do. But Jerusalem, the Holy Temple, is where we are intimate with G-d. The Holy Temple is the headquarters for being close to G-d and to each other. But when the house is destroyed, there is no place to be intimate anymore. And gevalt! Are we longing and crying to be intimate with G-d, with every Jew, with every word of the Torah, and, one day, with the whole world…On Tisha b’Av the Messiah comes. On Tisha b’Av until the Six Million you only heard the sound of the destruction of the Temple; y

Parshiot Mattot -Massei - Our Journey to Israel

Parshiot Mattot -Massei – Rosh chodesh 'menachem-Av' In this week’s blog: We look at journeys , our journey in life , and the journey of the children of Israel to Eretz Yisrael. This Parsha brings up a very important matter. How should we actually relate to the Land of Eretz Yisrael? What does it mean to love Eretz Yisrael. Journey prayers Every day every hour we’re beginning new journeys. The fact of the matter is that we are all on journeys where we go, where we camp, where we settle down,when we start the next journey, that is all in Hashem’s hands,it’s all by His decisions. We need to learn how to journey. We need [to learn how] to daaven sincerely. We are about to enter Eretz Yisrael an

An apprecation for Eretz Yisrael

How does a land become holy? Why is Jerusalem so holy? Why is the Love of the Eretz Yisrael and so Holy? When the Holiness Expands Now I want to tell you something very very deep. Nobody ever wanted to take away Avraham’s possessions. No one ever claimed that Avraham stole, no one ever claimed that Yitzchak stole. Throughout Yaakov’s whole life, there are so many claims on him. Esav takes away all his possessions and then Lavan says that Yaakov stole everything from him. Then the night before he meets Esav he endangered his life because he forgot three little pots. As much as Yaakov was very healthy, he mamesh endangered his life for three little pots. Why does everybody want to a piece of E

Parsha Balak - a Nation that dwells alone

One of the most profound and influential comments ever made about Jewish destiny was made by the pagan prophet Bilaam in this week’s sedra: As I see them from the mountain tops, Gaze on them from the heights, Behold it is a people that dwells alone, Not reckoned among the nations. (Num. 23:9) To many – Jews and non-Jews, admirers and critics alike – that has seemed to epitomise the Jewish situation: a people that stands outside history and the normal laws governing the fate of nations. Reb Shlomo zt"l when introducing his song - "Gam Ki Eileich- though I walk in the valley of the shadow of death, I shall not fear any evil, for You are with me," (Psalm 23), with a lamentation and a cry, that
