Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh’s Tweets, 26th Tishrei, 5771

Today’s random Tweets, from Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh

  • In Hebrew, “to exchange” is close to “to gamble.” Marriage is a gamble, especially marrying a king.
  • Before going out on a date eat dates, connect to Tamar. A holy date is for the sake of marriage.
  • Fast dating is recommended. 3 or 4 times should be enough to know if it’s your beshert (soul-mate).
  • To stake means to bet or gamble. Either you’ll experience holy fire or be burnt at the stake.
  • The Torah refers to dates as honey. When dating just get a taste of honey. Wait for your honeymoon.
  • A taste of honey is through sweet words and sweet eyes, no touching is necessary.
  • Dating for fun, not for marriage, ends in sorrow. It’s no fun to hurt or be hurt.
  • G-d created two sexes for a good reason. Opposites complement one another and bear fruit.

Kabbalistic Quotes, 26th Tishrei, 5771

Kabbalah, Bnei Baruch - Kabbalah Education & Research Institute

The science of Kabbalah is unique in the way it talks about you and me, about all of us. It doesn’t deal with anything abstract, only with the way we are created and how we function at higher levels of existence.

Today’s Kabbalistic Quote

When a person, by means of his studies, reaches the level at which he wants nothing but spiritual elevation and at which he accepts only the bare necessities of life in order to sustain his physical existence, not for pleasure’s sake, this is the first step of his ascent to the spiritual world.
(Talmud, Psachim)

The most outstanding Questions and Answers, excerpts, examples, illustrations, definitions, and advice from the Daily Kabbalah Lesson of Dr. Michael Laitman and Bnei Baruch.

Daily Kabbalah Definition

Definitions in the daily Kabbalah lesson guide a precise, spiritual approach to terms, and disqualify materialized corporeal definitions.


A Holy Face – A face that doesn’t receive light of the fourth aspect – works with all of the attributes other than the fourth aspect.

 From Part 2 of the Daily Kabbalah Lesson, (min 2:44-3:00)


A Spiritual Vessel – Returning Light in which the Direct Light clothes itself after the First Restriction. The intention in order to bestow which is the only vessel in spirituality – the place  to discover the Creator.

 From Part 2 of the Daily Kabbalah Lesson, (min 6:03-6:28)


The First Restriction – Isolates the desire to receive from the Light, isolates the creature from the pleasure that the creature can withstand.

From Part 2 of the Daily Kabbalah Lesson, (min 20:15-20:40)


The Size Of The Spiritual Desire –  is measured value by quality and not quantity – to what extent does it excel in bestowal.

Keep Smiling, 26th Tishrei, 5771

To those who read “Keep Smiling” before, I hope you will enjoy reading them once again…
Rabbi Avraham Tzvi Schwartz


Whether we like it or not, we are pleasure-seekers. This is beyond our free choice. It’s something we cannot escape.

Still, we can choose what type of pleasure we pursue. Is it the pleasure of eating and drinking, lazing around the house, playing, chatting, shopping?

Or do we look for other pleasures — more spiritual pleasures? For example, we may seek the pleasure of being a dynamic personality — of doing great things; the pleasure of bringing joy to others — of making them smile; the pleasure of thinking — of walking and talking with the Creator.

Whether we like it or not, we are pleasure-seekers. Still, we can decide whether we choose purely physical pleasures, or spiritual pleasures as well.

Excerpted from: ““Be Happy and Succeed”“.

Have a growth-filled, uplifting day!

Keep Smiling ~ Self-Wealth, 26th Tishrei, 5771

Motivational Quotes

Enjoy Others
Look at the children playing in the garden. Doesn’t this give you pleasure? Surely, you can delight in their beauty, their simplicity? Surely, you can enjoy their laughter, their fun?

Look at old people, resting in their places. See worn hands resting on shining walking sticks. See lived-in faces with deep, warm eyes staring into the distance, gazing into an uncertain future. Surely, you could hug such a person?

So far, the exercise has been easy. Now, let’s take it one more step.

Start looking at all people in a new way, in a happy way. Some of them dress well, others are a little shabby; some are handsome, others are quite plain; some are easy to talk to, others are distant. Still, we can enjoy them all. We can take pleasure in their presence. We can see them as our friends, and wish them happiness and success.
