Heaven - Jewish Outlook

Welcome To Jewish Outlook



   Someone once asked Rebbe Shlomo, “After you leave this world, are you going to go to Heaven or to Hell?” He answered, “I don’t care, as long as I have a telephone.”

“Whenever I really needed to hear a comforting voice, usually, miraculously, Rebbe Shlomo would call.” One person related this. But there were many, many more people who often received phone calls from him at just the right moment.

The only way to Heaven is, always, via Hell.

 Heaven is completeness, and Hell is incompleteness.

 If you are in Heaven and you think you deserve it, you are in Hell.

 The Ropshitzer Rebbe says something very special: A person filled with joy – even if he is the greatest sinner – will always be let into Paradise, because they are so eager to let in people with joy. They won’t let in a sad person. They can’t stand it.


Many religious Jews today eat strictly kosher food. It’s very holy. But if any Jew hits his children, as far as I am concerned, I don’t want to sit next to him in Heaven. Can you imagine? A Jew who hits his children? What kind of Heaven will he have?


When a person talks to you and you don’t pay attention, you are putting them through Hell because they are confronted with you not being there, with your absence. This is Hell. But if you have the strength to be completely there, then you are putting them into Heaven for that moment.


You really have to know how to listen. So the first thing we say is Shma Yisrael [listen Israel]. You have to listen.



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.”
