Anger - Jewish Outlook

Welcome To Jewish Outlook

Anger

 

 

I was once with Rebbe Shlomo at a subway station in Berlin. A disheveled, drunken man started shouting angrily at us, “You dirty Jews!” I urged Rebbe Shlomo to leave, but instead he went up to this raving man and hugged him. The man broke down and cried, “I wish all the Jews were like you.”

(Rabbi Yehoshua Witt)


People ask me, “What can I do?” I’ll tell you what you can do. We have to take the anger out of our hearts.

 

Whenever the air is full of anger, the only way out of it is to fill the air with joy. There is no other way!

 

If someone is angry with you, what do you do? Do you get angry back? If you say, “I love you so much,” that can already be taking away the anger.

 

If you have hatred in you, you are also tasting evil.

 

The most important thing today that every person has to do is to cleanse their heart from anger.

 

Whenever we begin to get rid of anger, we are already five thousand years too late. We can’t wait any longer.

 

The only way to get rid of anger is to fill our hearts with a lot of joy.

 

Hating people or saying bad things does not make you less holy – it breaks you!

 

The whole world is a hospital. The whole world is sick. Hatred is a sickness. Do you think I will help the world by getting sick myself?

Daily Torah Quote

Joke of the day

poor man came to the house of an elderly couple. Unfortunately they had nothing in the house to give him except an old piece of fish “from before the time of Noah’s Ark and the flood.” Out of desperation, they served him this fish and the next thing they knew he had to be rushed to the hospital. The elderly couple, of course, accompanied him to the hospital but, unfortunately, watched him die in front of their eyes.

At the funeral the elderly woman was crying uncontrollably and her husband was having a hard time trying to console her. She was hysterically screaming, “The fish killed him, the fish killed him.”

The husband who couldn’t stand to see his wife in such a state comforted her and said, “My darling, it’s really not that bad. We had the merit of fulfilling three good deeds: Welcoming guests, visiting the sick, and escorting the deceased!”
