Joke of the day

 
3rd Adar, 5770

Breslev Israel

The story takes place in a delicatessen located in downtown Manhattan. The time is summer and the weather is slightly warm. Into the delicatessen walks a nervous type of Jewish man from the Garment industry to consume his lunch. “Waiter, waiter” — the customer calls the waiter — “it is too warm in this place, could you turn on the air conditioner?” The Chinese waiter politely bows and says, “Yes, ah-so, I shall do so.” The customer eats his pastrami sandwich and a few minutes later calls the waiter over again. “Waiter, waiter, it is too cold here, could you turn off the air conditioner?” The Chinese waiter very politely bows again and says, “Yes, ah-so, yes, ah-so,” and walks away. The customer continues munching his meal and a few minutes later in an agitated fashion calls over the waiter again. “Waiter, waiter, it’s too warm in this restaurant, could you turn on your air conditioner again?” The Chinese waiter politely bows again and says: “Ah-so, ah-so” and walks away. This back-and-forth scene continues two or three times until another customer sitting next to this nervous patron calls over the waiter and tells him: “I don’t understand you guys. This fellow is driving you nuts. He tells you to turn on the air conditioner, turn off the air conditioner, turn on the air conditioner. What’s the matter with him?” The waiter politely smiles. “He not driving me crazy — no, sir. I drive him crazy. There is no air conditioner in this restaurant.”

Daily Writings on Kabbalah and Torah

 
3rd Adar, 5770

True Kabbalah org

Everyone has different abilities depending on the tribe they represent. Let us all unify and work together in the battle against the Sitra Acher.

WISDOM CAN ONLY BE LOWERED TO A CERTAIN POINT – IF YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND IT READ IT OVER TWO THREE TIMES AND THINK ABOUT IT

Regarding the fact that the Avos (patriarchs) were shepherds

  • Avraham, Yitzchak and Yaakov (Abraham, Isaac, & Jacob) were all shepherds, so were many other great leaders. (Moshe, David)
  • All these people had money to hire workers.
  • They chose to do so they could meditate.
  • This would allow them to stay out for days at a time.
  • Air in the fields was clear.
  • Praying and meditating among grass and trees works better then in the city.
  • All the angels appointed on the grass come and join the prayers.


(Medrish Talpiyot branch of Avos)

A Little bit of Knowledge

 
3rd Adar, 5770

DID YOU KNOW THAT

If the Sheliah Siboor – the cantor – started the repetition of the Shemoneh Esre – Amidah – while there were ten men present and then people left leaving less than a quorum of ten in the room – he continues the recitation of the blessings until he completes the entire Amidah.

However, in situations where the Kohanim would bless the people in the middle of the Amidah’s repetition – ten must be present when the Kohanim start the blessings. Should some of the people who were present when the Sheliah Siboor began the repetition of the Amidah leave he may complete the Amidah but the Kohanim do not bless.

Once they do begin the blessings with a quorum of ten they may complete the blessings even if people leave and there are less than ten left in the room.

CONSIDER THIS FOR A MINUTE

Through suffering we discover the great power of brotherly love. At no time are we as capable of giving love and receiving it as when suffering knocks on our door.

Teachings of the Sages

The Teachings of Rebbe Pinchas of Koretz and His Disciple, Rebbe Raphael of Bershad

ON LANGUAGE, ACTIONS, THOUGHTS, AND DREAMS

R’ Pinchas said: “When you speak evil of another man, the Satan will compel you to be his witness against the object of your words. Would you become the Satan’s assistant? Blame the fault, not the man”.*
