Sefer Yom Leyom, Yom Tov

1. The joy one observes Yom Tov with brings him fulfillment for months to come

5. The study of Torah on a Yom Tov is worth many days of normal study.
6. Being near family during Yom Tov, brings extra blessing to everyone’s festival.
7. Glorify your Yom Tov with extra food and the most tastist dishes. Go beyond the normal expectations and be glamorous.
8. If the children relate to Yom Tov with presents, then buy them something special.
9. Should you hold back unnecessarily in your observance and preparation for Yom Tov, so will Hashem hold back some of the light you were otherwise entitled too.
10. The glory of Hashem can be seen during Yomim Tovim
11. The wise are able to see the same holy light during Chol Hamoed as they see during Yom Tov itself.
12. Don’t get lost in traveling and road trips during Chol Hamoed, all the while loosing this precious time for a higher level of prayer and Torah study.
13. If you find yourself sad during Yom Tov, it is because you haven’t cleared all your sins and Hashem desires your repentance so He can shire more light upon you.
14. Be careful to work only if absolutely necessary during Chol Hamoed and even then, be careful to have your heart connected to the Yom Tov rather then business.
15. If you have a choice, do the preparations for Yom Tov yourself, even if it means cleaning floors and tedious chores. You will get all the time back.
16. Think only joyful and holy thoughts during Yom Tov.
17. Following Yom Tov, you might feel a strong pressure to sin and become depressed. This is because you weren’t joyful enough during the holiday.
18. If you open your home to others on Yom Tov, Hashem will open up his storehouses of blessing and holiness in return.

Sefer Yom LeYom Children

Filed under: Blog Torah,Daily Concepts,Sefer Yom Lyom — Reb Moshe @ 2:24 pm

Sefer Yom LeYom Children
1. We always underestmiate a childs ability to comprehend. We should soak their minds each day with knowledge & faith.
2. When children speak we should listen. We learn this from Hashem who listens to all his childrens prayers, speech and concerns.
3. The world would be a different place if only parents would have listened & given more attention to their children.
4. The entire world is held up by the Torah study of Children, so says the Talmud. Well then, we have to hold up the children & get involved in activities to help them.
5. We always blame the worlds influences on effecting our childrens well being and perspective. But don’t they simply miror their parents?
6. Lets be a better example. Children are so holy that they don’t have to see us doing bad, they just feel it.
7. We have to take upon ourselves the simplness of being like a child to his Father in Heaven.
8. A child will do amost anything for a piece of candy. Hashem has a storehouse filled with treats for adults, they simply have to follow His commandments.
9. You know why children don’t have long attention spans, because their parents don’t either.
10. A parent should always be one step ahead of their children.
11. A child’s Rebbe impacts his or her life forever.
12. Most chinuch is learned at home. Parents are the main teacher for their children.
13. The most important thing to teach children is love of DOING the actual commandments. This is taught completely by a parents pureness of heart while performing commandments infront of their kids.
14. If ones children are happy, their parent’s parnasa increases 10 fold.
15. It is very important that children are taught to wash their hands.
16. The more toys a child has to play with, the less they learn to appreciate things.
17. If you want to connect to high spiritual levels, surround yourself with children.
18. If you can’t appreciate children, what can you appreciate?

Sefer Yom LeYom eating:

Filed under: Blog Torah,Daily Concepts,Sefer Yom Lyom — Reb Moshe @ 8:06 pm

Sefer Yom LeYom eating: (I’m sending this from wifi near Yeshiva shaim v aver in tzfat)

1. Make sure to eat slowly and with concentration. Your thoughts while eating can lead you on the path of righteousness or evil when the food starts to digest and starts to be used by the body.
2. It is better to purchase food more often than too store up.
3. When you eat, make sure to concentrate on the blessing. What helps the most is to stop and think to yourself, let me say this blessing slowly.
4. Pray for physical food and nourishment each day.
5. This is very important, food has the power of nogah. When elevated with proper intentions, it elevates with a person to purity. If a person doesn’t eat with the right intentions, if the food is not kosher to the highest standards, the food drops a person from higher spiritual levels and causes them to sin.
6. Almost all sins stem from a lack of eating properly. It is the main area in a person’s life where they draw power.
7. Be careful not to eat while you are committing any improper act. This only emphasizes the power of the klipah.
8. It is very important to respect food. Many things we eat have not only sparks within them but are connected to actual souls of Jews of previous incarnations awaiting a rectification.
9. It is easy to remember to make a blessing before eating but far more easy to forget the one thereafter. Therefore, make a sign for yourself to remember. Maybe by putting an object in front of you as a symbol.
10. Certain foods warm or cool the body. Foods give vitamins and minerals. Therefore, it is important to balance the things we eat and to change them.
11. Depression causes a person not to eat and drink enough or overindulge. It is important to be aware of this and keep a balanced appetite as weakness by a lack of good diet, opens a person up to sin.
12. Before benching, say the psalm 23 having in mind that it is a segulah for parnasa because the letters equal “Zan”, which represents sustenance.
13. Food is elevated all the more when you prepare it yourself.
14. Eating things you are allergic too or that are not healthy during the weekdays not only hurts a person physically but also spiritually. Shabbos can many times override this in one or both aspects.
15. Eat food on a table as then the food is like a sacrifice in the holy Temple.
16. Always make sure there is plenty of food in the house to make women and children feel secure.
17. Taking a moment before eating to think about Hashem is very helpful
18. A person should be careful that they have good nutrition, exercise so they can serve Hashem with strength.

Filed under: Sefer Yom Lyom,Tzfat bombings,Website Kvetching — Reb Moshe @ 6:18 am

I have hit a video furry, save me! I just came back from doing another. If we can’t raise the money for a new computer, I need some technically advanced human to explain to me why all usb things I plug in are unrecognized. Is this a falty motherboard? I have tried device manager fixes with no luck. Also my sound is skipping. I have run 2 antivirus and spyware.

Cause I am editing on a laptop (since the PC usb problems) with 40 gig hard drive and I have no roommmmmmmmmmmmmmmm to work! I can’t edit off the external cause it takes 8 hours to save and chances of errors are too high.
