Prayer

Tuesday, 16th October 2018

After the end of World War II, the brilliant and flamboyant Torah sage, Rabbi Eliezer Silver visited and aided thousands of survivors in displaced persons camps in Germany and Poland who were waiting to find permanent homes. One day, as he was handing out Siddurim (prayer books) and other Torah paraphernalia, a Jewish man flatly refused to accept any. 

"After the way I saw Jews act in the camp, I don't want to have any connection with religion!" 

Rabbi Silver asked him to explain what exactly had turned him off from Jewish practice. 

"I saw a Jew who had a Siddur, yet he only allowed it to be used by the inmates in exchange for their daily bread ration. Imagine," he sneered, "a Jew selling the right to daven (pray) for bread!" 
"And how many customers did this man get?" inquired Rabbi Silver. 

"Far too many!" snapped the man. 

Rabbi Silver put his hand around the gentlemen and gently explained. "Why are you looking at the bad Jew who sold the right to pray? Why don't you look at the many good Jews who were willing to forego their rations and starve, just in order to pray? Isn't that the lesson you should take with you?" 

The power of Shema Yisroel

Friday, 12th October 2018

An amazing story!

Soldiers had gone into a mosque in gaza searching for tunnels and weapons,etc. 
A door opened and a female bomber walked into the room ready to explode herself near the soldiers. One of the soldiers realized that their end was near and screamed "Shema Yisrael" . 
Those two words made the female bomber tremble and was not able to carry out her plan. The army was able to stop her and dismantle the bomb. 
They took her for questioning and discovered that she is Jewish, she married an arab and was taken to gaza and beaten. She has two children and they are suffering terribly. She told the army where her children were and told them about where more terror tunnels are and who sent her to bomb soldiers and other information. 
The army got her and her children to a safe place in Israel and will soon be taken to get help from "Yad L'achim".

Steven Sotloff: Facing Jerusalem

Thursday, 13th September 2018

 

After Islamic terrorists brutally murdered American-Israeli journalist Steven Sotloff, his story of enormous courage and faith finally emerged.

An American-born Jew reporting from the Muslim world, Steven downplayed his religion and the fact that he was an Israeli citizen. When he was captured by terrorists in Syria in 2013, he did all he could to hide his Judaism from his captors. Steven’s family, terrified that if his captors knew Steven was Jewish they would do more to harm him, laid low, erasing all trace of their connection to their son from the internet and refraining from making public appeals for his release.

Yet despite the grave danger he was in, his last Yom Kippur, Steven Sotloff managed to outwit his captors, fasting and even praying in the direction of Jerusalem on this holy day. A former prisoner who was held with Sotloff recalls: “He told them he was sick and doesn’t want to eat, even though we were served eggs that day. He used to pray secretly in the direction of Jerusalem. He would see in which direction (his Muslim captors) were praying, and then adjust the angle.”

In the middle of terrorist-controlled Syria, surrounded by murderous thugs dedicated to the eradication of Jews and the Jewish state, one Jewish, Israeli man was unbowed, observing Yom Kippur under the very noses of his captors.

Never give up, never stop praying.

Thursday, 30th August 2018

Nice story: An elderly Jewish lady living in a nursing home passed away. Her children, who always visited her and took care of her, were notified. They immediately phoned the burial society and arranged for a proper burial. The woman was buried in the presence of her beloved family; Kaddish was recited and Shiva began.

On the 5th day of the shiva, the phone rang and the daughter answered. On the other end of the phone was......her mother, whom she had just buried! The daughter, in shock, immediately fainted. The phone rang again; it was her mother complaining that no one had come to see her that entire week. The family rushed to the nursing home to see their "dead" mother alive and well! It turned out there was a mix-up at the nursing home; it was her roommate that had passed away, not their mother. The home had mixed up the names and phoned the wrong family, and so the wrong person was buried! Imagine how terrible everyone felt about such a mistake.

But now, the nursing home had the grim job of informing the children of the OTHER lady that their mother had died 5 days ago and was already buried. They called, the son answered, and as soon as they broke the sad news to him that his mother had died, the son interrupted, "Just have her cremated; we’re not interested in anything else." The nursing home explained that it was too late; she’d already had a proper Jewish burial! When the son heard this, he was awestruck, and related the following story:

"We long debated with our mother about what to do about her burial when she died. She is observant, and wanted a proper Jewish burial. But we told her that we plan to cremate her, as we don’t believe in an afterlife. Besides, cremation is much cheaper and definitely more ecologically correct. Our mother’s response to us was: ‘I will pray to G-d that I receive a Jewish burial.’ Every day, our mother prayed. We told her it was a waste of time, that when she was gone, WE would be in charge of things, and do what we thought was right, but she kept right on praying anyway. And now, amazingly, it seems that her prayer was answered!"

The Rabbi comments: Prayer has an awesome power. So great, so powerful that Hashem knew that if Moshe prayed just one more time – Tefila #516 - even He, the Almighty, the Shomaya Tefila, would simply have to give in! So He asked Moshe to stop right there. The lesson for all of us: never give up, never stop praying.

Wherein lies the mystery and mystique of Rosh Chodesh?

Thursday, 9th August 2018

 

Rav Soloveitchik teaches that while Shabbat and Yom Tov receive their sanctity and significance from specific historical-reli­gious events and eras, such as Creation, Revelation or the Exodus from Egypt, the significance of Rosh Chodesh emanates directly from the Jewish embrace of Renewal.  The Jew identifies personally and dynamically with the moon; with revival from an almost nonex­istent state, with illumination returning from a state of darkness. The Talmud alludes to this when it teaches: sanctify the moon, and I will send you a sign – David Melech Yisrael chai vekayam!  David, who was defeated and humiliated, lives!  He will rise!  He will reign with power and pride.  Moshiach will be ben David.

Rosh Chodesh speaks to this eternal faith in redemption yet to come, in the coming light though it is yet dark.
