Happy Israeli "Al Ha-esh" Day!
Human to Human

And The Winner Is.... Akiva!

Mazal Tov, Akiva! Wow, we're so thrilled with the answers that you guys wrote in! Thanks so much! Well, you were all right about the soldiers in the pictures! But, the dates were just a tad off. Rav Arush on the left was from 1972, and Rav Brody was from 1978. Akiva, we're going to send you a nice package from Breslev Israel, so email me your address at racheli@breslev.co.il ! 

Isn't it wild that Hashem chose two soldiers from two such different backgrounds to become partners in spreading the light of emuna in the world? Look at them now!

Rav Shalom - Rav Lazer - Miami

I was thinking: what if we could go back in time and tell these two young secular soldiers that one day, they'll be Ultra-Orthodox rabbis with long payos and beards, and they'll reach millions and millions of people by sharing the teachings of Rebbe Nachman on emuna?

I think they would have shot the messenger. Well, maybe not Rav Arush, because you can see that sweet, innocent smile even when he was a scrawny little soldier. But Rav Brody? Ooh, boy, I would be running for my life! Can you see that look on his face? Even back then he had laser beams shooting from his eyes. Is that why it's called Lazer Beams??

You know, I'm thinking he was probably wearing a Harley Davidson jacket underneath his army bomber jacket. And don't you think he looks all too happy to be carrying that gun? jjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj

OMG I just fell asleep at the computer, as you can so plainly see. 

For the rest of you losers out there, (I'm just kidding!!!) we're going to be doing a lot more fun competitions, which means some lucky people will be getting some cool free stuff! So stay tuned! 

In the meantime, don't miss Rav Brody's weekly emuna shiur tonight at 7:00 Israel time! I'll post more details as soon as I get them. 

Peace out!

Mazal Tov to you, Yosef! Since you missed winning by a hair's breadth, you get a fantastic consolation prize: a blessing for your success from Rav Arush. Let us hear the good news from you, because it's on the way, G-d willing...


If a blessing from Rav Arush is considered a consolation prize, I can't wait to see what you're shipping me...
