Paradise - Jewish Outlook

Welcome To Jewish Outlook

Paradise

Now I want you to know the deepest depths.  Every person has a share in this world and a share in Gan Eden, and a share in the coming world, in Paradise.  What does it mean having a share in this world?  What does it mean having a share in Paradise?  I want you to open your hearts in the deepest depths.

 

Having a share in this world means I know exactly what I have to do in this world.  Even this is a very high level.   Because it means that I know that if I don’t do it, it just won’t happen.  And then that means that I’ve just got to do it.  This is my share in this world.

 

Do you know what my share in Paradise is?  Do you know what it means to live in Paradise? If I know that everything is good, even if sometimes it doesn’t look so good, it is Paradise.

Imagine if I would know that the Torah is only holy because it’s given to me. How I would throw myself at every word!  How I would cry over every word to understand it.

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.”
