Daily Kabbalah Quote – 6th Iyar, 5769



Daily Kabbalah Quote

“Every basis for physical success is the measure of the unity of society, and the basis for the success of intelligence and knowledge, is the separation and disagreement among them.

It therefore turns out, that when mankind succeeds in the matter of success of the bodies, meaning by bringing them to the degree of complete love for the fellow man, all the bodies in the world will unite into a single body and a single heart. And only then will all the happiness intended for humanity will be revealed in all its glory.”

Baal HaSulam, in “The Freedom.”

Rav Naftoli Amsterdam Recommends Getting A Heter Mei’a Rabbanim

Rav Naftoli Amsterdam one of the close talmidim of Rav Yisroel Salanter wondered why people run around to get 100 Rabbanim to allow them to marry a second wife which is only assur from a Cheirem of Rabbeinu Gershom. Shouldn’t they get 100 Rabbanim to sign off before they speak Lashon Hara which is an issur Min HaTorah, and one of the more severe ones at that? (Iturei Torah Kedoshim)

“Zachor Eis Asher Asa Hashem L’Miriam BaDerech B’Tzaischem MiMitzrayim”

The Ramban and other Rishonim count, among the Mitzvos Aseh Min HaTorah, the mitzva of remembering and saying with your mouth each day what Hashem did to Miriam when she spoke about her brother Moshe. The Chofetz Chaim in Shaar Tvunah Perek 12 says that being Mikayem this mitzva can save you from the aveira of Lashon Hara. More than just saying the pasuk, says the Chofetz Chaim, one must think about the incident in order for it to have its intended effect.

Rabbi Nachman’s – Sayings & Teachings – 6th Iyar, 5769


Aazamra.org - Torah for Our Time


Man’s mind is his very essence. Wherever your thoughts are, that is where you are – all of you.

This is why it is so important to avoid all evil thoughts, because otherwise that is where your place will be.

You must force yourself to think good thoughts in order to be worthy of know ing God. Then your place will be with Him and you will be merged with Him. The greater your perception of God, the more fully merged with Him you will become, and then you will attain eternal life.

Likutey Moharan I, 21

Rabbi Nachman of Breslov
“It is a great mitzvah to be happy.”
