Shabbos - Jewish Outlook

Welcome To Jewish Outlook


The Talmud says, Shabbos, the heilege Shabbos, is a gift from heaven. And you know, my beautiful friends, it is possible to keep every law of Shabbos, but the gift of Shabbos, the sweetness of Shabbos, the oneg Shabbos, the holiness of Shabbos, you have to ask for, and you have to pray for. We all need it so much. We all would like it if in the Holy Land everybody would have Shabbos, but what we have to do is to give each other the gift – the gift of Shabbos. We have the power, G-d gave us the strength, to make Shabbos so holy, so beautiful. I bless you and me, we should give over Shabbos to our children, to our neighbors, and maybe one day, one day the whole world will be filled with Shabbos, with bliss, with sweetness. The whole world will be Shabbos.

The holy Master Rebbe Nachman says: You know why there is no peace in the world? Because you can only make peace when you have so much joy. You cannot make peace with anger. Shabbos shalom umevorach [A peaceful and blessed Sabbath]. Only with sweetness, with bliss, with holiness, will we bring peace into the world.



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.”
