Have a wonderful Shabbat 16th Tevet 5770

The Holy One, blessed be He,
said to Moses,
“I have a precious gift
in My treasure house,
called the Sabbath,
and desire to give it to Israel;
go and inform them.”
*(Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Shabbath, 10b)

This coming Shabbat we complete the reading of the book of Genesis with the story of Jacob’s final blessings to his children and grandchildren before departing this life. Parents blessing their children after the Friday night prayers prior to the Shabbat evening meal should do so with special intent tonight as this week’s parshah contains the verse with which fathers customarily bless their sons, “May G-d make you like Ephraim and Menasheh” (Genesis 48:20). The customary blessing for girls, “May G-d make you like Sarah and Rebecca, Rachel and Leah” is also based on this verse.

After the completion of the synagogue Torah reading of Genesis, the congregation customarily declare: “Hazak Hazak Ve-nit-hazek: Strong! Strong! Let us be strong!”*

Hazak Hazak Ve-nit-hazek!!!

ON POLITICAL EVENTS AND SOCIAL NEEDS

Joke of the day 15th Tevet 5770

Breslev Israel

Three Jews are in a clubroom discussing their origins. The first says, “My father was from the old country. His name was Goldsmith, he worked in gold, made a good living, taught me the trade and I’m doing very well with it. I’ve changed my name and now I’m Mr. Gold.”The second one says, “My father came from the old country. His name was Silversmith. He worked in silver, made a good living, and taught me the trade. I also did very well with and shortened my name to Silver.”The third man says, “My father came from the old country. His name was Schneider and he worked as a Tailor. He always struggled. He taught me his trade and I struggled for a long time. Finally, I went into business. My business went bankrupt. I went down on my knees and prayed to the Lord: ‘Lord, help me succeed and we will be partners.’ And everything turned around and I became a wonderful success.”The other two look at him and ask: “Do you expect us to believe that story?” “Sure”, he says. “Haven’t you heard of Lord and Taylor?”
