After Purim.. trust in Hashem

Filed under: Blog Torah — Reb Moshe @ 5:16 pm

Why do you feel down the day after Purim??? Well on Purim you were not able to know the difference between Mordechai & Haman… how did you really accomplish this? You reached a level of bittle, nothingness. You see when your bittle, you realize that Hashem is in control of everything and there is no good or bad… just Hashem’s Will. Now it’s after Purim & your self-worth has returned. You no longer are able to see that Hashem is in control, so you feel you have lost control. Your world feels overwhelming because you haven’t put Hashem inside it… So Purim was a taste of how your really supposed to trust in Hashem… Now you have to learn how to do this without the holiness of Purim… So Study more Torah…. Books on Emunah, faith & start changing your prospective of what life is all about… Blessings…

Shabbos laws

Filed under: Blog Torah — Reb Moshe @ 3:56 pm

I left the Shabbos Mikvah today shining having the thought…. I am new…. I am a new creation… I am beautiful… I am pure…. All week long we live with worry and fears, then comes eviv shabbos and there is nothing to worry about anymore. Nothing really matters except being close to Hashem. So why can’t it be so simple during the week? The answer is to study Hilchos Shabbos, the laws of Shabbos… to prepare for shabbos… increase Torah study on shabbos and to be more observant… Do you know how many mistakes your probably making on shabbos because you didn’t study the Shabbos laws thoroughly? There is some reason that the light of shabbos isn’t entering enough your weekday so that you feel some of the shabbos harmony and beauty in all your life. Let us commit ourselves to not just go through shabbos routinely & to learn the laws of Shabbos to perfection. Having fun on Shabbos is only part of it…. the fear of performing muktza or wasting time on shabbos should be just as important. What you give for shabbos is what you receive…

Spending money on Torah

Filed under: Blog Torah — Reb Moshe @ 6:15 pm

Everyone always talks about the greatness of giving charity but when a person uses their money to buy sefarim, Torah books (not from ones 10% required charity funds)… they bring a light into their life and into the world. It is no simple matter to use ones funds for Torah or to support a scholar in his studies. To spend your money on Torah, It is mamish fixing the world. If you are questioning if you should spend funds for a Torah book or to help someone study, don’t think twice. Torah is light. You will erase all judgement from Heaven.
