Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh’s Tweets, 30th Tishrei, 5771

Today’s random Tweets, from Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh

  • Saying “I love you” gives expression to simple faith – faith in G-d and in the presence of His spark in your beautiful, good heart.
  • “I love you” (ani ohev otcha, practice saying it in Hebrew) = 502 = simple faith (emunah peshutah).
  • Rabbi Bunim said: Only smart – a theif! Only loving – an adulterer! Only religious – an idolater! You have to be all: smart-loving-religious
  • We can only fulfill our passion to know G-d by fulfilling His will on earth. “No thought can know You, only as You are one in Your will.”
  • The initials of Adam David Mashiach also spell Adam, “man.” The “m” of Mashiach thus coressponds to the “m” of magen, “shield.”
  • Red MD = Adam (its initial letters) and “long live the king.” The king is David, the primary reincarnation of Adam, from whom comes Mashiach.
  • The initials of Magen David Adom (red MD) spell “man” (Adam) backwards. In Hebrew, man and red are cognate. David had a reddish-gold beard.
  • One who knows and practices the secret of the Magen David needs no other MD. In Israel medical first aid is provided by red (fiery) MD.

Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh’s Tweets, 29th Tishrei, 5771

Today’s random Tweets, from Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh

  • Noah was a “complete tzadik.” A tzadik clings to truth, is consistent. Thus Noah was both complete and consistent, but in a confined system.
  • The longing for G-d has begun, amongst Jews and gentiles alike.
  • In the messianic era (which we are now entering) hunger and thirst will not be for bread and water but for knowledge of G-d.
  • Learning Torah reveals the hidden light of creation, the light that shines from one end of the universe to the other instantaneously.
  • “And G-d saw the light to be good.” The sages say that He saw that the primordial light was too good for this world and hid it in the Torah.
  • Rashi says that “they shall become one flesh” refers to the couple’s offspring. Ibn Ezra says that it refers to the marital union itself.
  • Upon the creation of Adam and Eve G-d says, regarding all marriages: “And he shall cling to his wife and they shall become one flesh.”
  • To be wise is to take best advantage of every opportunity.

Today’s random Tweets, from Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh

  • “Love” is short for “light of the Holy One blessed be He.” The love that unifies man and wife is G-d’s light in darkness (all lights off).
  • All of humanity derives from Noah’s three sons. The purpose of the exile of the Jewish people is to redeem the fallen sparks in all.
  • In every sin one loses a bit of sanity. But you can get it back, and more, by returning to G-d.
  • The good inclination is life’s bread and butter. The evil inclination gives spice to life.
  • Without an evil inclination you can’t understand the Torah’s inner dimension. Angels don’t get it.
  • Don’t give in to your evil inclination. If you do it will lose its potency.
  • A virgin evil inclination is the best. At some point she’ll pursue a constructive career.
  • You don’t have to be good to be good. Just be good.

  • All of humanity derives from Noah’s three sons. The purpose of the exile of the Jewish people is to redeem the fallen sparks in all.
  • When G-d decided to conceive the world He became, in His infinite light, both male and female.
  • All begins with “A time to give birth and a time to die.” Every moment give birth and become nothing.
  • “A time to cry and a time to laugh.” Cry when G-d hides His countenance and laugh when He reveals it.
  • The pair before love/hate is “a time to be quiet and a time to speak.” Silent hate/expressive love.
  • The sages say that “a time to love” is in a time of peace and “a time to hate” is in a time of war.
  • Some of us are scared of night, of being in the dark. Think that night rhymes with light, not day.
  • The darkness of night is lighter than light, it’s the ideal time to take off, take advantage of it.

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.

Today’s random Tweets, from Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh

  • Our’s is a generation of relaxation. We’re all tired. If you’re tired you need to relax. It’s time to game. The Torah is G-d’s holy game.
  • G-d created music for spiritual elevation. The Torah itself is primordial, it reflects G-d Himself. But it has both music and mathematics.
  • When the mind is too tired to study a Torah text in depth, that’s the time to count its letters. G-d created mathematics for relaxation.
  • In Hebrew, “fall” and “wonder” are cognate. By witnessing wonders in nature and in our lives we fall in love with our Creator.
  • Why do we say “to fall in love”? To experience true love one must fall from the heights of his ego. Egocentricity does not allow for love.
  • Joy is in knowing that G-d is always with us. He follows us like a shadow and leads us forward like a torch, illuminating our darkness.
  • The rebuke of one unworthy to rebuke fills the air with a bad odor. If you feel the need to rebuke others, first rebuke yourself.
  • The beauty of a bride is in her eyes. The bride is Shabbat, she lights the Shabbat candles and pepares its delights – “love in delights.”

  • My soul is G-d’s light. My body – His will. My clothing – His deeds. My home – His pleasure.
  • When you take off your hat make sure a head covering remains, to remind you that G-d is above you.
  • Did you ever try not to think? If you succeed you will see great light, which will keep you going for the next million thoughts.
  • Why do stories begin “once upon a time”? A true story emanates from one, a state above time.
  • The Torah is a storybook – your story, from the moment that you were conceived in the mind of G-d.
  • Stories are for children. All children stories have a happy ending. G-d is our storyteller.
  • To feel oneself a child or servant of G-d comes from the revealed dimension of the Torah.
