This is one of history's all-time strangest incongruencies: the world is on fire and about to explode, yet much of the world is in a deep spiritual slumber. How can that possibly make sense?
Without emuna, nothing makes sense. The world complains about Israel, that our retaliation against the thousands of missile attacks against our cities and towns was disproportionate. Yet, we turn around and accuse Hashem of being disproportionate.
Are we still making the same mistakes? Will we continue making the same mistakes? If you want to understand what's happening in the world, then today's emuna broadcast, "The Same Mistakes", is an absolute must.
Today's shiur (lesson) and live broadcast will take place this evening (Wednesday) at 7:00 PM local time, at our Chut Shel Chessed Yeshiva, 13 Shmuel Hanavi Street, Jerusalem, in the main sanctuary. As always, the live shiur is open to the public - both men and women are welcome - so if you're anywhere near Jerusalem, come on by! You can see today's lesson here - the broadcast, as well as our lessons posted from now on - are Mac and iPod compatible. If you tune in too early to the live broadcast link, you'll be sent to the main page of the Breslev Israel website, so try to tune in on time as follows:
9:00 AM in LA and the West Coast, 10:00 AM Denver, 11:00 AM Mexico and Central, 12:00 PM NYC (EST), 5:00 PM in the UK, 7:00 PM Johannesburg and Capetown, 7:00 PM Israel. As soon as we can, G-d willing, we'll post a link to the lesson for all those who couldn't see it live. If you can't see the broadcast, you might need to download a new version of Flash Media player, which you can do here. We hope you enjoy the broadcast.
