The Importance of knowing why




This video is about knowing why to do the mitzvos we Jews have so we can make our practice more meaningful.

First, lets look what happens with our actions and behaviors. We know our actions have an impact on the world. But besides having a physical impact, they also have a spiritual impact, in which we either bring down good or bad energy, depending on whether we do mitzvos or aveiros(sins). It is our choice what we do. Everyone does both of them. We all have ups and downs. But we can always get back up.
Some actions are between person and person, and some are between person and G-d. For example, giving to others what they need, and lighting Shabbat candles before sun-down, bring light and blessing. But gossiping Unnecessarily about So and so brings negative energy. There are times when we need to say something about someone, but there are rules how to do it. Each mitzvah teaches us something important.

Besides that, there's our neshama(soul). Our neshama needs food just like our body. Thus, we have Torah and mitzvos. It's our source of nourishment and connects us to Hashem. Each bit of learning and practicing brings us closer to G-d. Where as, aveiros(sins) pull us away. We might not feel inspired sometimes, and it might just feel like rituals. That's why it helps to learn the meaning of a mitzvah, and try to do the mitzvah with JOY. With continuous effort, personal prayer, and time, the feeling inside will grow. And if you need to, seek guidence from someone to help along the way. Remember, every effort counts. Sometimes, we have challenges in life. But these are to help us grow. Just like excersize can be hard but makes us strong, so too challenges in life make us stronger. This way we can receive more Divine light as Rabbi Arush teaches in "The Garden of Emunah"

Finally, we should remember that it is our obligation to uphold the laws, traditions, ethics and values that we Jews are meant to keep, ever since that everlasting promise at Mount Sinai, and therefore be the holy nation that we should be. It is for our benefit, the Torah and mitzvos, which Hashem(G-d) gave us to bring light to the world and nourish our soul and connect to G-d. Therefore we should do it with JOY

Lyrics to the song:

Stand stand for a tale so grand
Shushan is the place where it all began
The hidden miracle

One man, second in command
Slay all the Jews was his wicked plan
A scheme so miserable

He chose a day for the disaster
It's ironic what came after
He didn't know a girl named Esther
Would turn it upside down

So raise your glass if you can see the hidden meaning,
it's right in front of you,
we will never be never be anything but proud to tell the story,
v'nahafoch hu (It was turned upside down)
Won't you come on and come on and raise your glass
just come on and come on and raise your glass

Esther became the queen
Cuz' God was pulling strings from behind the scenes
She wore the royal crown

3 days the Jews just prayed, 
Queen Esther risked her life went to save the day
She took Haman down 

The streets were filled with celebration
Everyone ate Hamantashen
Jubilation for the nation 
Ken tihiyeh lanu... (So should it be for us)

So raise your glass if you can see, the hidden meaning,
it's right in front of you,
we will never be never be anything but proud to tell the story,
v'nahafoch hu
Won't you come on and come on and raise your glass
just come on and come on and raise your glass

So get your costumes on
Make noise and drown out Haman
Don't drink like a fool
And remember and remember
What the day's about...

So raise your glass if you see God in hidden places,
He's right in front of you,
We will never be never be anything but proud to tell our story
v'nahafoch hu

So raise your glass if you can see the hidden meaning,
it's right in front of you,
we will never be never be anything but proud to tell the story,
v'nahafoch hu
Won't you come on and come on and raise your glass
just come on and come on and raise your glass...

The End of Days: Gog and Magog



During an amazing evening of song and inspiration with Shlomo Katz, Rabbi Lazer Brody explains how our own neshamas (souls) begged Hashem to descend to this lowly material world for their final correction and biggest test of all.

The Tunnel; A poem and solution



Sometimes in life we keep looking around for a solution but nothing works. Here's is some advice that I would like to share. It works both on a personal level and on a national level. In regards to Israel, there are three things we need. Unity, follow the Torah and mitzvos, and trust in Hashem because Hashem is the only One that can help us. The politicians have tried but failed. We need to turn to Hashem

Breslev: The Song of the Frogs



This one minute clip was filmed and recorded at daybreak by the Bugg River, on the outskirts of the town of Breslev in the Ukraine. This was one of Rebbe Natan's favorite spots for "hitbodedut", or personal prayer. The frogs sing their own special song of praise to The Almighty - we humans should too.
