Daily Reminder – 30th Nissan, 5769

Strength In Numbers

You cannot compare a mitzva done as an individual to a mitzva done in a group. We see this from the pasuk that says if you keep the mitzvos, 500 enemy soldiers will flee from 5 of you and 10,000 from 100. Your ability to fend off the enemy goes up beyond the original proportion as more people join your group, says the Chofetz Chaim (Chovas HaShmira), who encourages people to form groups to commit to not speaking Lashon Hara.

Besides if you are not speaking Lashon Hara with your friends, than you have already decreased your capacity for saying Lashon Hara by a great deal.

“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.

Teachings of the Sages – 30th Nissan, 5769

A Chassid once asked R’ Pinchas why he prayed without making a sound and without moving his body, whereas the davening of other rebbes was often done in a loud voice accompanied by gestures of enthusiasm. R’ Pinchas replied: “When a Zaddik prays, he cleaves in truth to G-d, and loses all sense of corporeality, as if his very soul had departed from his body. The Talmud tells us that in some people the soul leaves the body only after great agonies and convulsions, whereas in others it departs as quietly as one draws a hair out of milk or offers a kiss”*
