Rip Current

Rip Current
The beach looks so calm and innocent. The surface looks like a pane of glass and the waves are less than a foot high. So what if there's no lifeguard and so what if there's a warning sign? What's more, you're an experienced swimmer. The day is gorgeous and you're on vacation and this secluded beach is a perfect getaway. Why not enjoy it? So you wade into the water - it's so silky smooth and clear, then suddenly...

You've lost control. A strong undercurrent, known as a "rip current" to experienced ocean swimmers, is sucking you deep into the ocean and far away from shore. It's no joke, and you're now fighting for your life.

Life has many "rip currents", those unexpected situations that pounce on us and even threaten our lives. What do we do? The Gemara describes these very situations, and our beloved teacher Rabbi Shalom Arush teaches how to survive them. That's what we'll learn, G-d willing, in this week's lesson.

Join us for today's emuna lesson and live broadcast from Jerusalem entitled "Rip Current", which will take place, G-d willing, on the ground-floor main sanctuary of the Chut Shel Chessed Yeshiva on 13 Shmuel Hanavi Street in Jerusalem at 7 PM Israel time; the shiur is open to the public - both men and women are invited. 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.  If you are not able to view today's broadcast live, then G-d willing, you'll be able to see the video tape of it later this coming week on Lazer Beams.
