One Life, One World

One Life One World
The Gemara teaches that a person who saves a life saves an entire world. Without realizing the value of one life, which essentially is one entire world, one cannot appreciate the Master of the World…

We must begin by learning to appreciate ourselves and our own lives. This is an important preparation for Rosh Hashanah, which unfortunately, many people neglect or don't even know about.

Join us for today's emuna lesson and live broadcast from Jerusalem entitled "One Life, One World", 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. 


Rich Man, Poor Man

Rich Man  Poor Man
The arrogant dude in the above cartoon should chill and deflate, because in a blink of an eye, Hashem could knock him off that wad of bills and put the poor guy below in his stead. That's why King Solomon, the wisest of all men who ever walked the face of the earth, said:

"The rich man and the poor man meet - Hashem made both of them" (Proverbs 22:2).

Today's emuna shiur is an eye-opener, devoted totally to elaborating the above passage and its tremendous significance to each of us during the month of Elul.

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.

Voice Mail

Voice Mail
Many people don't even bother listening to their voice-mail messages. Why?

There's a tremendous difference between the animated way we talk to another person and between the laconic way we leave voice-mail messages. Which type of communicative relationship would you like with Hashem? A beautiful, direct exchange or voice mail?

Many people confuse the means to obtaining our goal with the goal itself. This week, we'll find out how to focus and best achieve our true mission on earth; with Hashem's help, this week's lesson will help us get our priorities straight...

The Shechina: Exile and Geula

Exile and Geula
One of the most perplexing concepts in Judaism is that of the Shechina, the Divine Presence. Before performing a mitzva or reciting a prayer, we say, L'Shem Yichud Kudsha Brich Hu V'Shechinte, "In the name of the unification of the Holy One Blessed Be He and the Divine Presence". Holy One and Divine Presence? Doesn't that sound Catholic? Where's our age-old belief in the Oneness of Hashem, which martyrs have given their lives for since the beginning of people's history? Also, what's the term Shechinta B'Galuta, the Divine Presence is in exile, that the Zohar uses in dozens of places?

With Hashem's merciful assistance, this week's emuna shiur and broadcast will explain and clarify the answers to these questions. What's more, we'll discuss what this has to do with Tisha B'Av and our national consolation immediately afterward.

Don't miss this vital shiur.
