Klal Gadol BaTorah

Klal Gadol BaTorah

Which comes first:

Loving Jews or loving Hashem?

The answer is resoundingly clear in Chazal.

Who’s on first.

What’s on second.

Live Like A Warrior

הכובש את יצרו

At least five solid references to Rashbi are hiding in these three words.

If you want to find Hashem, eventually you will.

If you think you found Him already, you’re hopelessly lost.

The climax of avodas Hashem is silently screaming איה.

So is the beginning.

Gevura’s The Second Midah

Gevura’s The Second Midah

Requires us to take a second look.

To wait a second.

Only one brocho in shemoneh esreh has the nikud of Gevura.

She’va with two dots.

The geula we’re anticipating will be our second.

Learning b’iyun dissolves personal and national disaster.

Yeshivas Rashbi

Chatzos Kollels have become popular in recent years. Only the Zohar emphasizes the importance of this practice. It’s repeated there dozens of times.

 

With the haskama of Rav Moshe Shapiro zt”l I encourage people to learn this way themselves whenever possible.

 

When we can’t, next best is to sponsor someone who can. The ideal subject of learning after chatzos is Kabbala.

 

$1500 will sponsor a talmid chochom learning kabbala in Yeshivas Rashbi for a month.

Stealth Kollel

Twenty years ago a colleague in the Mir discovered a number of talmidei chachomim struggling financially who refused to receive tzedaka. He outsmarted them.

 

They were invited to join a Shabbos kollel paying them nicely for learning they were doing anyway wherever they want. Donors don’t know the recipients, and the recipients don’t even know they’re receiving tzedaka. This is the Stealth Kollel.

 

Stealthily supporting thirty world class talmidei chachomim learning in Yerushalayim. The most ideal form of tzedaka, as stipulated in Bava Basra 9a.

 

There are no expenses and no advertising. 100% tzedaka.

 

Sponsoring one avrech for a month is $1000. But donations of any size are warmly welcomed.
