Like the Sons of Meron

Today's emuna shiur and broadcast is a preparation for Rosh Hashana; it's the last live broadcast until after the High Holidays on Wednesday, October 7, G-d willing.

Sons of Meron
The Gemara describes the way that we all appear before Hashem on Rosh Hashana, "like the sons of Meron"? What does this mean and how does it affect our service of Hashem?

With Hashem's help, we'll do our best to answer these questions during today's emuna shiur and broadcast, "The Sons of Meron", will take place this evening (Wednesday), G-d willing, at 7:00 PM local time at our Chut Shel Chessed Yeshiva, 13 Shmuel Hanavi Street, Jerusalem, in the main sanctuary. 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 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! 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 on this coming week on Lazer Beams.

 


Hashem's Business Card

Have you ever seen Hashem's business card? It's something we should all have, not only in our wallets, but engraved on our hearts: Hashem's Business Card

Try calling Hashem and getting to know Him. How? Read I Love Your Name, my feature article on this week's lovely new issue of Breslev Israel web magazine.

In our elaboration of this week's Torah portion, Ki Tavo, we discuss birthdays, of all things. Birthdays, are they a mitzvah or not?

Dr. Zev Ballen - The Bermuda Triangle

Dovber Halevi - The Lesson of a BillionaireIran vs. Me

Remember! Don't go into Rosh Hashana without getting the very best spiritual defense attorney you can. A Pidyon nefesh to Rav Shalom Arush and Emuna Outreach will do just that! Your donation is USA tax-deductible.

Blessings for a wonderful new week!


The Light of Moshiach

Light of Moshiach
We all know that Moshiach is fast on the way; all the signs are manifest. What do we do in the meantime? How can we find the light of Moshiach amidst all the darkness?

Today's emuna shiur and broadcast, "The Light of Moshiach", will take place this evening (Wednesday), G-d willing, at 7:00 PM local time at our Chut Shel Chessed Yeshiva, 13 Shmuel Hanavi Street, Jerusalem, in the main sanctuary. You can see today's lesson here - the broadcast, as well as our lessons posted from now on - are Mac and iPod compatible.

Pre-Flight Check

Foolish Flyguy
A pilot would have to be a total dimwit to take off without making a pre-flight check, and a criminal as well! As in aviation, when we assess ourselves before doing something, we avoid all types of trouble and needless nosedives. Read all about it in Pre-Flight Check, my elaboration of this week's Torah portion Ki Tetze in this weeks stimulating new issue of Breslev Israel web magazine.

Elul is a time to make the small adjustments in life that constitute the big difference in serving Hashem. For example, saying Grace after meals with intent can save your life. See an amazing story about this in Dirt Clods and Potatoes.

Far and Near

Far and Near
Rebbe Nachman teaches that those who think they're very far away from Hashem are really very close. What does this have to do with Elul and with contemporary times?

Today's emuna shiur and broadcast, "Far and Near", which will not only help us do our proper job in Elul but also serve as an intravenous injection of encouragement, will take place this evening (Wednesday), G-d willing, at 7:00 PM local time at our Chut Shel Chessed Yeshiva, 13 Shmuel Hanavi Street, Jerusalem, in the main sanctuary. You can see today's lesson here - the broadcast, as well as our lessons posted from now on - are Mac and iPod compatible.

Like A Tree, Exactly

Man is a tree
This week's Torah portion is Shoftim. Cryptically, the Torah says that man is a tree in the field. What does it mean? Rebbe Nachman teaches us to search for the wisdom in every creation, so we can get closer to Hashem; by looking at trees and their characteristics, we not only get closer to Hashem but we learn so much about ourselves. Read all about it in Like a Tree in the Field, my feature article on this week's exciting issue of Breslev Israel web magazine. 

Richie and Susan had a fantastic spring semester, with plenty of time for tennis, golf and bike-riding; before they knew it, they faced a final exam in Organic Chemistry 202...

Sound familiar?

So many people say, "Elul, big deal! There's plenty of time until Rosh Hashana." Think twice; you'll want to read The Cramming Syndrome, my special article for Elul.

Enjoy, and have a lovely new week!


Four Words of Gratitude

Thanks so much, Hashem
It's alarming how four-letter epithets have become so mainstream that people use them with not a bit of shame. Speech reflects one's inner dimension, so the "curse words" indicate a "cursed life". No wonder so many millions of people are depressed! Why not convert the four-letter anger words to four-words of gratitude? Watch how your life will make a dramatic change literally overnight...

Today's emuna shiur and broadcast, entitled "Four Words of Gratitude", will take place this evening (Wednesday), G-d willing, at 7:00 PM local time at our Chut Shel Chessed Yeshiva, 13 Shmuel Hanavi Street, Jerusalem, in the main sanctuary. You can see today's lesson here - the broadcast, as well as our lessons posted from now on - are Mac and iPod compatible.
