Daily Torah Quote – 7th Kislev, 5773

Hillel would say: One who increases flesh, increases worms; one who increases possessions, increases worry; one who increases wives, increases witchcraft; one who increases maidservants, increases promiscuity; one who increases man-servants, increases thievery; one who increases Torah, increases life; one who increases study, increases wisdom; one who increases counsel, increases understanding; one who increases charity, increases peace. One who acquires a good name, acquired it for himself; one who acquires the words of Torah, has acquired life in the World to Come.
(Avot 2)

Invoking G_d’s protection for the IDF!

At this moment it’s very important to invoke G_d’s protection for the members of the Israel Defense Forces.

He Who blessed our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob — may He bless the fighters of the Israel Defense Forces, who stand guard over our land and the cities of our G_d, from the border of the Lebanon to the desert of Egypt, and from the Great Sea unto the approach of the Aravah, on the land, in the air, and on the sea.

May the Almighty cause the enemies who rise up against us to be struck down before them. May the Holy One, Blessed is He, preserve and rescue our fighters from every trouble and distress and from every plague and illness, and may He send blessing and success in their every endeavour.

May He lead our enemies under our soldiers’ sway and may He grant them salvation and crown them with victory. And may there be fulfilled for them the verse: For it is the Lord your G_d, Who goes with you to battle your enemies for you to save you.

Now let us respond: Amen.

Daily Torah Quote – 5th Kislev, 5773

Hillel would also say: A boor cannot be sin-fearing, an ignoramus cannot be pious, a bashful one cannot learn, a short-tempered person cannot teach, nor does anyone who does much business grow wise. In a place where there are no men, strive to be a man.

Daily Torah Quote – 4th Kislev, 5773

Hillel would say: Do not separate yourself from the community. Do not believe in yourself until the day you die. Do not judge your fellow until you have stood in his place. Do not say something that is not readily understood in the belief that it will ultimately be understood [or: Do not say something that ought not to be heard even in the strictest confidence, for ultimately it will be heard]. And do not say “When I free myself of my concerns, I will study,” for perhaps you will never free yourself.

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!!!

Friday night-Saturday 11-12 December / 25 Kislev
First Light of CHANUKAH
Shabbat Parshat VAYEISHEV Shabbat Mevarchim TEVET
In the Second Temple on this day the Altar was reconsecrated by the Hasmonean priests. From today until the conclusion of the festival of Chanuakah the special thanksgiving prayer for the miracle (‘Al Hanissim) is added to each Amidah prayer and Birchat HaMazon (Grace after Meals), and Full Hallel (Psalms 113-118) is recited after the morning Amidah.
Shabbat Torah reading: VAYEISHEV, Gen. 37:1-40:23.
Special Chanukah reading: The first day of Chanukah is the anniversary of the completion of the Sanctuary in the Wilderness (though it was not inaugurated until the following Nissan). When Moses saw that the work was complete, he blessed the people “that the Shechinah should rest on the work of your hands… ‘And let the pleasantness of HaShem our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands for us…'” (Psalms 90:17). On each of the days of Chanukah there is a special Torah reading selected from the account of the sacrifices offered by the Princes of the Twelve Tribes in celebration of the inauguration of the Sanctuary (Numbers 7:1-89).
Blessing the coming month: Following the Torah reading we bless the coming month of Tevet (Rosh Chodesh is on Wednesday night-Friday 16-18 December). The Molad will be on Thursday December 17 at 12:59 a.m. and 10 chalakim.
Special Haftara for Shabbat Chanukah: Zechariah 2:14-4:7
Saturday night-Sunday 12-13 December / 26 Kislev
The second light of Chanukah is lit after the departure of the Shabbat. The prevalent custom is to light the Chanukah lights following Havdalah.
The days of Chanukah are days of joy. It is forbidden to fast and it is customary to hold feasts and to eat some fried foods (such as doughnuts — no need for excess!!!) in memory of the miracle of the oil, and a milk or cheese dish in memory of the heroism of Judith, who fed the Greek general Holfurnos until he was drowsy and then cut off his head.
