KABBOLAS KINYAN LIFTING THE HANDKERCHIEF

Heavenly Bank Account

 

Gd has a lot for you in your bank account, but sometimes you forget to go to the teller and pick it up.  When you lift the handkerchief, it’s your chance to go to Gd’s bank and say, “Master of the world, whatever You have for me and my holy bride, give it to us right now.”

 

How Deep does it Touch You?

 

When Gd said to Noah, “I’ll destroy the whole world,” Noah said, “OK, what can I do?”

 

The heilege Chozeh m’Lublin said:  After the flood it says, “V’yisha’air ach Noah” [the only one who remained is Noah].  So the Lubliner says, “V’yisha’air ach Noah” [After the flood, he was the same Noah].  The same Noah…  You see the destruction of the world, and you walk out the same?  You are cute and you’re sweet, you are a tzadik [holy man], but you are not the one to bring Mashiach [Messiah]. Ah, the heilege Zeide Avraham [Our holy grandfather Avraham], when he heard Gd is destroying Sodom, he says, “No, I won’t let You!”

 

You know why Noah wasn’t taking in poor people?  “What can I do?  Gd made him poor, so what can I do?”  Avraham says, “Ribbono Shel Olam [Master of the world], I won’t let You.”

 

You know what “kabbolas kinyan” is all about?  You can live, hopefully for a hundred years, with your soulmate.  But the deepest question is, where does it touch you?  How much does it mean to you?

 

 

Kinyan

 

Kinyan” comes from the term “kin,” a nest.  It means that every word should dwell in your heart, every word should be so deep in your heart.  Your children should live in your heart…. Your soulmate should live in your heart.  All of Israel should live in your heart.

 

How big a heart do children need, how big a heart does a husband need?  Infinitely big.  But we have no object which is infinite, so we take a cute little handkerchief.


There is no greater simcha [joy] than to know that G-d hears our prayers.  That is the greatest simcha in the world.

Daily Torah Quote

Joke of the day

Little Josh was brought to Dr. Gill cause he hadn’t eaten anything for days. Dr. Gill offered him all the goodies he could think of. No luck. He tried a little scolding. It didn’t work. A little pleading, to no avail. Finally he sat down, faced the boy, looked him in the eye. He said, “Look young man, if you can be stubborn, so can I. You’re not going anywhere till you eat something. You can have whatever you want, but only after you have eaten will you leave.” Josh just sat and glared for some time, then said “OK. I’ll eat but I have some conditions. First, I’ll have exactly what I want and exactly how I want it and second you’ll share with me.” Dr. Gill was OK with this. He asked the child what he’d like. “Worms!” said Josh. Dr. Gill was horrified but didn’t want to back out and seem like a loser. So, he ordered a plate of worms to be brought in. “Not that many, just one,” yelled Josh as he saw the plate. So, everything other than one worm was removed. Josh then demanded that the single worm be cut into two pieces and then Dr. Gill eat half. Dr. Gill went through the worst ordeal of his life, and after finishing, barely managing to keep his cool, said, “OK, now eat!” Josh refused as he sobbed, “No way! You ate my half!”
