Joke of the day 20th Tevet 5770

Breslev Israel

A poor Yeshiva boy marries the daughter of a very rich man.The happy father is overwhelmed at the marriage of his daughter and offers the young man one-third of his business and a senior position in the company.He tells the young man: “I’ll make you my Vice President of manufacturing.”The boy replies: “Dad, I appreciate your offer but I don’t think this is really what I want to do.”The father then continues: “Well, perhaps I should offer you the position of Vice President of Finance.”The boy replies: “Dad, I appreciate your consideration, but again this is just not my field.”Whereupon the slightly disappointed father-in-law continues: “My son, I offer you the position of Vice President of Sales.”The boy replies: “Dad, I greatly appreciate your generosity, but I don’t think I’m really meant for sales.”The father-in-law is now somewhat annoyed: “Well, what is it you want to do?”The boy replies: “Dad, I want you to buy me out.”

As we embark on the story of the Exodus from Egypt, it is proper to study the weekly parshahs that speak about this with special attention in preparation for retelling the story on the Seder night on the coming festival of Pesach, now less than three months away.

After today’s Torah reading in the synagogue, we bless the coming month of Shevat, which is next Shabbat, Friday night-Saturday 15-16 January. The Molad (“birth”, junction of the sun and the moon) will be on Friday 15 January at 1:43 P.M. and 11 chalokim.

Today is the yahrzeit of Shimon son of Jacob and Leah.**

Daily Torah Quote 20th Tevet 5770

 
Breslev Israel
When people would ask Rebbe Aharon Kabilitzer why he was always so happy he’d answer: The verse says: “…and then our mouths will be filled with laughter.” In the Days of the Mashiach we’ll see how everything was always for the best throughout history. I’m just borrowing a little joy from those days.
