The Individual

     Every person is a revelation of G-d, which has never been before, because every person has something of G-d, which nobody else ever had. I have something that Abraham didn’t have. I have something that Moses didn’t have.   If you serve G-d like somebody else, then you needn’t have been born. They […] Continue reading


  Once there was a Yeshiva student going out on his first date. He went to his friend for advice. “What do I talk about with the girl?” His friend said, “It’s as easy as pie. First you talk about love. Then you talk about family. And then you talk about philosophy.” OK, the great moment […] Continue reading


     Peace comes from such a high place that it is not given to one person. I can’t say to G-d, “Please give me peace. I don’t care about the rest of the world.” Peace has to be between me and the world, between me and people, between me and somebody else.        […] Continue reading


   The previous Lubavitcher Rebbe visited a city in Russia. There he saw old Chassidim with long beards cleaning a house. He asked them, “What are you doing?” They said, “Tonight the holy Rabbi of Tolna is coming so we are cleaning the house.” He said, “Where are your children? Why don’t they do it?” […] Continue reading


   The Ropshitzer Rebbe returned home after giving his sermon in the synagogue. His wife asked him, “How was the sermon?” He answered, “I had a fifty percent success. I taught the importance of the rich giving charity to the poor, and I was able to convince the poor to be willing to receive it.” […] Continue reading


The Alshich   I want to bless you that whenever something good and holy happens to you, it should also happen to your soulmate.  Because the saddest thing in the world is: imagine if one of you reaches a very high level, and the other one doesn’t.  It’s so heartbreaking because you can be very […] Continue reading


The Greatest Light   One second before they break the glass, it’s on the level of going into the Holy of Holies.   “Ohel” [tent], comes from the word light.  The world always thinks that light is when everybody can see it.  The greatest light is to be alone with another human being, when nobody […] Continue reading


David HaMelech   “Cos yeshuot ehsah” [I will uplift the cup of salvation]. David HaMelech will hold the cup all the time in his hand.  Gevalt, gevalt.  I cannot imagine David HaMelech not coming to this wedding, and not holding this beautiful cup here.     Gd’s Circle   “Yancheni bemaglei tzedek lemaan shemo” [He […] Continue reading



Daily Torah Quote

Joke of the day

The Ropshitzer Rebbe was famous for his sense of humor.

Once one of his followers asked him, “What is the reason for your custom to dress in only white cotton clothes?”

The Ropshitzer Rebbe said, “I cannot reveal this to you now. You must first prepare yourself. Immerse yourself in the ritual bath eighteen times every day. After three weeks come to me and I will reveal the reason to you.”

The follower did exactly as the Rebbe ordered, and after three weeks time he proudly went to the Rebbe.

“I did all that you asked,” said the follower. “Please reveal to me the secret.”

The Rebbe said, “Because it is cheaper.”

The follower was confounded: “What? Because it’s cheaper? Why did I have to immerse eighteen times a day for three weeks? Why couldn’t you just tell me?”

The Rebbe answered, “If I would have just told you, then you would have just told someone else, and he would have told someone else, and so on…. And before you know it the price would go up.”
