abundance. That receptacle is prayer.

complain that they lack things in life. Rebbe Natan said, "Wherever
I see deficiency, I see lack of prayer." There are no instant

answer all your prayers for the very best. Don't ever give up. Prayer
is the best gift we have. And, Hashem always listens.

The Beams and Breslev Israel wish to extend our deepest heartfelt condolences to our cherished friend Menachem Herman, who lost his mother on Sunday. Menachem is sitting shiva at 11/7 Gad Street, in the Scheinfeld section of Beit Shemesh. May Hashem comfort him among the other mourners of Zion and Yerushalayim.
Bright Beams blessings for a week of good tidings. We look forward to seeing all of our friends in LA this coming week. This trip will be unforgettable, G-d willing. Don't miss the opportunity to see and hear Rav Shalom Arush in person.
King David was privileged to look at Hashem and say, "I am with you always." How did he reach such a lofty spiritual level? Can we truly cling to Hashem in this generation? Enjoy this week's 44-minute emuna shiur, and let it be the beginning of a wonderful new week, amen!
