Inviting Divine Protection

We live in wonderful, fascinating times of exhilarating technological breakthroughs. We are truly   blessed   with   so  many   avenues   of information  and  knowledge  available   to  us  all, such  as  we  would  never  have  dreamed  of  just  a few   years   ago.   More   than   ever,   we  are   given choices  as to what  kind of knowledge we want  to focus our attention  on and how to apply it. Yet, for all those new blessings, most everyone complains of feeling stressed out, having to run, perhaps feeling anxious and depressed with too many   cares,   and  often   worse.   There   is  also   a general  basic  fear  looming  about.  We  try  not  to think about it so often, but it stays there: the fear of the increasing threat of a nuclear  war. Perhaps  there has never been a time in history  as dangerous  as  today.   We  need  protection  more than ever.  No one wants to see a replica of what happened in Europe  and the world  during  World War   II,  or  live  through   even   worse   events   of global destruction. Here  we are again,  just as it has happened many times before in history, when the primal target chosen   by   those   in   arrogant   and   threatening

power is towards the Jewish people. This unique people’s  mission  has  been  to  strive  to  bring  the light of intelligence, wisdom, healing and new beneficial, creative, initiatives to our world, as opposed to brutal oppression, lies, brainwashing and aggression.

Through the immense courage, commitment, inspiration,  faith   and   hard   work   of   countless Jewish  people,  we  are  now  living  in  Israel.  Our tiny country  is so tiny it can hardly  be found on a world map. six million people live in israel. One in a thousand,  in the world’s  population  of 6 billions. Yet we are strong,  thriving  more  than ever. We  have  no  idea  how  much  Divine  intervention is  working  on  our  behalf.  Our  miracles  of protection  are   abounding  every   day   and   with every  attack   from  our  enemies.   How  could  we survive  without  them?  How  could  mankind survive  without  Divine help? In  the  course  of  3,300  years  of  Jewish  history, great Prophets, spiritual Masters and sages have exhorted   us  to  remember  our  connection  with the Infinite  One, Master  of Creation,  to know our bonding  with this awesome, supreme  Power  that sustains  us  with  Life  and  Love.  They  warned  us and implored  us to remember our great destiny. Each  century,  each  generation, they  emphasized the timeless  Torah instructions:

“Love  God,  your  Creator,  with  all your  heart,  all your  soul,  and  all  your  resources”  “Serve   Him with joy” “Love your neighbor  as yourself”  “Be kind to your fellow men, deal righteously with them.” “Keep  learning  and absorbing the truth of sacred teachings and instructions of Torah Wisdom” “Choose  life”. They told us: this is our recourse,  our protection, this    is   our   inspiration,   our   strength,  purpose, health and success, this  is our  high  destiny   and  our   deliverance. May   we   be   privileged  to   remember  our   true purpose  and destiny. May  we  remain  faithful  to it in all  of our endeavors, our plans, projects and creative relationships. May we remain  committed to serve  the Almighty One with love and to care for our fellow human beings with kindness, compassion and joy. Our  history  is  filled  with  the  examples  of generous,  exceptional  Jewish   people   who together   have  filled  the  world  with  the  light  of good  judgment, courageous actions,  wisdom  and a great labor of love to make life easier for others.



Daily Torah Quote

Joke of the day

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 arrives. They sit down and first he says, “Tell me honestly, do you love lokshen (noodles)?”

She says, “No, I hate lokshen.”

OK, let’s try family. “Does your brother like lokshen?”

“I don’t have a brother.”

Oh, no, this is not so simple. Let’s try philosophy. “If you would have a brother, do you think he would like lokshen?”
