Where is Reb Moshe?

Filed under: Day by Day — Reb Moshe @ 1:04 am

It has been quite a difficult task these past few months to put ilovetorah aside. It is like those rare teachers who have totally enthrawled their very being into something for more then a decade, only to retire and wonder what they will do with themselves. In my case, it was simply a mater of a desperate circumstance. I could no longer poor our my every penny and energy when everything else started to fall around me. So to help myself cope with such a drastic change in my life, I tried to forget about the site. Then just the other day, I walked into an American Yeshiva here in Tzfat and was bombarded with, “wow, it is Reb Moshe the Video Torah guy”. Being that I keep a low profile here in my own city, I wasn’t expecting this. It bothered me for a few days. I guess running away and hiding for a while wasn’t going to work. So here I am again. Hashem has put a lot on my shoulders. I am expecting the man to come tomorrow to power off our electricity and pray daily that I don’t loose my home. But somehow, there is still hope. I am working on many new business projects and I believe very strongly that mazel is something that goes up and down. The time will come imminently that I will return to doing what I love and what helps people. I am in this position due to my maximizing all my resources for years to spreading Torah. Also because of my sins. Hopefully, Hashem will look down upon me with continued Mercy and send my the business and joy I need to return to Him, my fellow people and all good things.
I was thinking to myself tonight, what would people think if I posted on here if anyone has a used pair of shoes they don’t need as my sneakers ripped. Then I realized that I can’t do such a thing. How awful it is when the world economy is in dire straits and a leader (of some sorts) has no power to bring forth words of encouragement and hope. People look to Reb Moshe and I Love Torah for words of hope. The funny thing is, now so do I. Just the other day, I was viewing some of the videos looking for some inspiration from this Reb Moshe guy even I seem to miss today. So Reb Moshe, wherever you are, the physical Reb Moshe needs you. Klal Yisrael needs you to give them hope. Hashem, I pray to you to bring us back this Reb Moshe guy to the ways of Teaching Torah. Allow him to keep his home and fight for all of us. Reb Moshe… Reb Moshe…
Are you there?
Did you forget us?

  2. I’ll be honest; I am much too young to be in position to talk politics. But if there is one thing I am sure of, is that if McCain, gets elected, he better stay alive throughout his presidency. I sincerely do not want Sarah Palin to be president, Chas V’Sholom.

  3. i also miss Reb Moshe 🙂

    actually, maybe it would be a big service to everyone if people started going through all their extraneous stuff and offered it online in the event that others could use it, might need it.. we all have so much extraneous stuff. .. i mean there are amutot and all kinds of organizations that provide all kinds of necesary stuff, but i’m sure lots of people have old pairs of shoes lying around that aren’t being used.
